Four of the six of us loved their menu choices; 3 filet mignon and 1 lamb chop. My beef Wellington was not medium rare as chef suggested, but rare, which rendered it without a lot of flavor. One seafood dish was extremely skimpy on the portion for a dinner meal. . .2 shrimp, 2 scallop and 2 something else I can't remember. Presentation was nice. Although two were disappointed, we would go again and order something different. The atmosphere upstairs is very cozy. Service was fun and well-done.

We certainly enjoyed our wonderful meal. At Brentwood. The only suggestion we have for improvement is that the decor (at least in the front first floor dining room) could use a sprucing up. The wall colors and drapes just didn't seem to go together. Perhaps a minor item but it would have made the experience even better.

There were 4 of us. Three meals were very good however the one was subpar. The rib eye was requested medium rare but was overdone and very dry. It definitely was not worth the more than $41 it cost.

We have been to the Brentwood before and enjoyed it. It is a bit pricy but we like it for special occasions. It was a bit more noisy than normal on this visit because they had a wedding going on in another room. The food was good however the Bernaise sauce that came with my filet was odd. The sauce was not a traditional Bernaise sauce - it was tasted more like a mustard sauce. It is nice to see the owner Eric come out of the kitchen and chat with the guests.

This is an outstanding restaurant. The food and wine here is the best in the entire area. Prices were very reasonable as well.
My wife and I dined here a few nights ago, and it was truly a memorable dining experience. Very relaxed atmosphere.
We love this restaurant and plan to go back often!

We went to the Brentwood for the fish Friday special of drum fish. I had the blackened fish and wife had the Caribbean fish. Both were excellent served with rice. MAt $15 per entree for excellent fish dish, how can you go wrong.

We were celebrating my husbands birthday and my sisters wedding. Everyone enjoyed their meal except my husband.
The filet for 2 was very good best meal my sister has ever had.
The lamb was perfectly cooked and good.
The Wellington was good not great but pretty good. The mushroom duxelles was very uneven and bland. The green beans were the star of the dish.
My husbands ribeye was poorly cooked it looked like it was under when they sliced it so they browned one sliced side. This made it taste horriable and mushy. The crab cake served with it was horriable and made my husband sick for several days. They took the crab cake off.

The desserts were good but the creme brûlée’s was covered in booze that did not cook off. The key lime pie was good. Everyone really enjoyed the chocolate mouse.

The wine list is wonderful!!! Excellent selection and the best part of our meal.

Service is top notch and the owner was wonderful to chat with

I looked forward to our special anniversary date Saturday at Brentwood. We arrived at the time , 7:15, of our reservation and a walk-in couple was seating before us. We were seating in a large room with many people and asked to be moved because we could not talk normally it was so loud. We were given a lovely table in the upstairs bar. We waited almost two hours to get our meal. It came to us at 8:50. I ordered the Vegetarian Stack which was presented cold. I sent it back and rather thNa fresh new hot entree, the plate was smushed around and heated most likely in a microwave. My husbands entree was very good however he ate without me as mine was rewarmed. It was a busy night but we feel we will most likely not give BreNtwood another try. Not a pleasant night!

I had placed our reservation online earlier in the day. When we got to the restaurant, I did not realize we had to make a separate reservation for the outdoor Lobster meal. Fortunately, 4 people had just canceled their reservations, so we were able to get in. We were there with another couple celebrating our anniversary. I would have been disappointed had I not have been able to get the meal we had planned on getting. The food was good, the music was nice, the atmosphere was great. We will definitely go back.

This is one of our favorite restaurants though it’s rather expensive. I ordered the grouper special and was a little disappointed. It was a little bland and the fish was a little over cooked. For the price it should have been outstanding. Otherwise everyone was extremely happy with their meals. Service was great.

It was a very romantic setting with a beautiful window view. My wife and I rarely enjoy fine dining, but The Brentwood blew us away. The food was amazing and the Belgium Chocolate Soufflé was fantastic! We had made a reservation and enjoyed our own room for about half our meal. Overall it was a wonderful experience that we enjoyed tremendously.

Dinner date with my wife. Excellent evening! WILLIAM was our server and provided excellent care. Punctual, made nice suggestions, even offered to alter sides with a particular dish my wife liked. He allowed us quiet time but kept check on our needs without being obtrusive.
I had the Chef special, a mixed grill of lamb sausage, duck and salmon. Excellent! My wife ordered the Salmon. I ordered the beets and goat cheese as an add on for my side salad. It was excellent! We also shared another chef special which was a peach bread pudding. It was delicious and perfect size for sharing...with a cup of coffee!
The Chef also visited our table and we enjoyed our conversation with him.
It was a perfect evening! Thank you Brentwood for the hospitality and quality!
