Had another lovely night at The Brentwood. The food and service are excellent. The atmosphere is cozy; love the dark, cool room. As always, Eric took excellent care of us and seated us right away at a lovely booth. We will be back.

In town with my wife for the Rose Bowl. Wanted a restaurant close to our hotel and found The Brentwood Restaurant and Lounge. Meal was very nice and loved our waiter. Great neighborhood feel.

It’s a standard local spot. Good from time to time. the menu could use an update and the decor seems like it requires the level of darkness they employ. The noise level is too loud for quiet conversation. Not sure why as it’s not a young crowd.

We were given a table for two which included direct lighting in my companions face and adjacent to the bar which was unbearably noisy. The table we were moved to was quite satisfactory, but lacked a server which we had to ask for.

The food was marginal. Our waiter Jeff ignored us most of the time. We won't be back there for anything ever. At the price we paid for 5 people to dine there it should have been way better of an experience. Will not recommend to anyone either.

Both guests liked their food, good but not great. Sadly, my main course was pretty bad. Baby back ribs should be juicy and tender. Mine were dry and tough. Other than that, okay.

Been here many times, but last Saturday the restaurant fell down. We were generally ignored by the waiters, the chicken was drenched in cheese, and the pacing of the whole meal was off.
We will go back, but not for a while. And on a Saturday night at 8:00 the place was half-full.
Wonder if they changed their chef?

From the welcome at valet, through the front door, to the table and the wine and food it is the rarest of places: a neighborhood gem perfect for a date, even when you are 70!

Great cocktails, beer, appetizers, dinner and desert....never fails to delight the taste buds. The restaurant manager remembers us, the waiter is drop dead gorgeous, and we always enjoy the experience.

Love this restaurant for going out with friends. The food and drinks are good , nice wine selection, healthy and the lighting is great. Only thing we didn't love is the music change at 10:300 11? Used to be known to play rock and cool music....now it gets really loud and clubby.

The servers beards are on point...

The Chicken Parmesan not quite at that level unless you like a " salt lick "...

Crazy, had them send it back and remake and same salty mess..

Maybe another less salty cheese should be used.

Food is reliably very good. Waiters were especially appreciated because they don't interrupt your conversation (over & over) to inquire how you're doing. This feels relaxed; you don't feel rushed.

Great place to come and get an outstanding meal. A little high on price, but I was prepared for that. The KC Porkchop was delicious!! Similarly the chicken parmesan was excellent and light - not what we expected but excellent and tasty.

For dessert tried the chocolate bread pudding. All I can say is OMG.

Good drink selection. Cocktails and wine.

Our dinner was very well prepared and both of us thought the selections were well made. The Malbec by the glass was excellent but overpriced as was the entire meal. This was once a local restaurant with good food and nice ambiance. I think it's become a bit pricey for just an average night out.

Thought my pasta entree was excellent and also enjoyed the Caesar Salad, which is why I gave four stars for the food. The service unfortunately was sloppy and rude. They spilled some of my martini when setting it on the table, they spilled some of my friend's soup when setting it down, neither of which was acknowledged. Just thought for the price and rating, the service would have been more professional. I don't think we'll be running back anytime soon. This restaurant is likely a strong appeal for locals, but I wouldn't make the trip (living in the Valley).

Food was excellent. Service a bit slow but not too bad. We had an early reservation so the noise level was quite low until near the end of our meal when the noise level increased significantly. Quite a varied menu - we both had a fish dish and were quite satisfied. I have had meat dishes there before that were excellent.
