The Brentwood Restaurant and Lounge Ratings and Reviews
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?
The Brentwood Restaurant & Lounge has become the go to place for our monthly dinner get together with friends. 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.
Horrible manager ,, bad food ,, rude
In middle of our 500 dollar dinner took a chair from my girlfriend that she was sitting in because it fit better at another table ,, right in the middle of main course bo apology was appalled by this place salmon mushy tuna app chewy
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.
The food was fabulous. Much better than I had expected it to be. The service, not so much. Our waiter had much more important things to do than to answer our questions when we asked them or bring us wine glasses (the bottle sat opened on the table for a good 10 minutes before we had anything to drink the wine with). His wine service in general was abominable. He took the cork with him like trash; sloshed up everyone's glasses without proffering a taste; and generally had no idea what he was doing. The worst part was when I got home and saw that OpenTable had been lied to and told that I had no-showed my reservation -- after I not only checked in by name, but watched the host check me off. Very strange and really too bad because as I wrote above, the food was very well made and tasted excellent. Alas, there is much more to a good meal than the food itself.
I have not been to The Brentwood in many years.
I was looking for a good restaurant to take my good friends kids- young adults here from Florida to a hip place in the Brentwood area of town, I thought of this.
In the past, I had always enjoyed the atmosphere, food as well as the service. I felt the prices were fair as well. I am well aware that Bruce Marder from numerous restaurants (West Beach Cafe, Rebecca's , Capo's) to name a few owns this as well...Unless he has sold it since I was there??
Anyway, there were 3 of us. We had a bit of a hard time deciding what to eat, because nothing on the menu really stood out.
My friends son settled on one of the "specials" of the evening, Chicken Parmigiana ($38.00 + an additional $5.00 for a side of spaghetti)!!! His girlfriend chose a pasta ($23.00) and I chose a "Jidori" chicken!
It was the only thing that appealed to me on a very overpriced menu. My fault as I did not look towards the right enough to realize that the Chicken cost $43.00!!
All that being said, West Side restaurant high prices, ok, but high prices deserve high end service.
Such was NOT the case. The waitress had zero personality and somehow disappeared whenever we needed something. She reappeared when she tried to sell more stuff. NO bread, until we asked someone else to bring it, no follow up on fresh pepper for the Caesar Salad until once again having to ask!
An additional $1.50 for anchovies for a Caesar Salad that cost $17.00 when most cost way less and include anchovies. No extra plates included when we specifically stated we were sharing the salad. Once again needed to ask.
To top it all off, I left my credit card there. Spoke to the manager a few times concerning all that I stated above and he never mentioned I left my card there.
I finally figured that out and when I asked him to send it to me (they are right across from a huge post office) and I specifically said I live an hour away, he felt uncomfortable about doing that! One more issue.
