We have been to Bentley's multiple times and it is great. Sitting outside on the patio with good service and not being rushed is a great experience. The food is excellent.

We have two go-to moves at Bentley's. Because it's between our church and our home, after Saturday evening Mass we sometimes go for happy hour, which we can catch if we get there before 6:30. On those nights, we eat at the bar and have happy hour dinner and drinks. On Sundays and Mondays, they have a very popular special.... More

Great spot for a family birthday celebration. Nice outdoor seating in an open and attractive space. Tuesday nights feature a special menu with great entree choices for $15. Bottles of wine for $15 also makes it affordable with a big group! Nice portions and tasty food. We come here every time we visit family in CA.

We love a good piece of prime rib and find that Bentley's does this really well, consistently. They have specials on Sunday and Monday nights, I believe, and you can get this and other great entrees (including lobster combos) for quite a reasonable price. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the bread and butter they serve with their... More

Like I've said many of my other reviews all always go back to a restaurant service is excellent. I may not go back to Bentleys for a while because the service was only fair. Are the prime rib for medium and it came out rare . My father had the pepper steak which appear to be very nice to other... More

I made reservations online for 8. Then needed to call into the restaurant to expand our reservations for 12. We arrived almost 5 minutes early and our table had been set up already. Everything! Including iced water. Our service was top notch. The selections on the menu met everyone's needs. Continuous exceptional service throughout dinner. Highly recommend this restaurant for... More

We stopped at Bentley's around 8:30 on a Tuesday night for a quick dinner on the way home. We sat in the patio and ordered hamburgers and a bottle of wine. The burgers were delicious and the wine was great. Service was good and the patio was warm and not too crowded. I would do this again in a flash!

Had dinner on the patio last evening and service was good but the food was a big disappointment. My wife had the small cut of prime rib and it looked like a thin slice of lunch meet you would get at the supermarket. She did think the Au Gratin Potatoes were very good but we came for the beef. I... More

Visited Bentley's with family in April. Sat outside on their beautiful patio. They were under staffed so service was a bit off but not enough to make you really notice unless you used to be in the business. Food and drinks were delicious! Extensive wine list and great cocktails. Try the baby back ribs. Server recognized slow service and brought... More

I went for Sunday brunch and had a very damp Eggs Benedict which I would be ashamed to serve at home. The muffins were inadequately toasted, the eggs were not dried before being placed on the muffins and the hollandaise sauce was minimal and not tasty at all. The service was slow.
