Has the atmosphere of an exclusive club but welcomes you as a guest. The service was excellent. We particularly appreciated advice on the best wine to drink by someone sensitive to our modest budget. Made us feel that the most expensive wines were not necessarily the best. And the range is impressive. Likewise positive guidance on the menu. The appetizers... More

We visited the Brentwood restaurant on various occasions maybe 5-6 times over the period of 4 years and the food and service were always consistent with the fillet mignon chop being the best dish among all the neighborhood steak restaurants. We made reservation and came on Friday night and something changed. The place was full with locals which is usual... More

Love this place! Always feel so welcomed, the wait staff is super good, always making sure you have what you want and things you don't even know you want! The best burger in town, delicious duck salad, chicken pot pie, salads, fish, steaks-all good. It has a lively crowd at the bar-the place feels alive. It can get very busy... More

Had dinner at this restaurant last night and it was the most delightful experience. It is a local restaurant but dripping with casual elegance. The food was delicious and the service was the best. We were with friends visiting from Sacramento and had to find a restaurant near their hotel. What a find. We will be returning and I highly... More

Needed a good place in Brentwood which is sort of an isolated island from many of the better restaurants in the Los Angeles area. Brentwood was a pleasing surprise. Varied menu with something for everyone; good drinks and desserts. Most importantly, everything was well prepared and very tasty. Nothing crazy; nothing over the top and nothing that get the creative... More

Nice room with a good buzz. Busy. The menu here is strange. A lot of variety with prices all over the lot. Some entrees for under $20 but chicken for $45? Four of us tried a variety of apps & entrees. Nothing particularly good or bad. Wine list absurdly overpriced. One mediocre Cal Chard on basic list for $45, and... More

Great food prepared from first class ingredients. A just right darkened atmosphere for sharing conversation and each other. A really good martini. Warm attentive staff.

I think most of the other reviews are accurate on this place. This was my second and last time here for dinner. My guess is they've been around for so long as an old school spot in Brentwood, that they think they can charge high prices for mediocre dishes. There were quite a few locals, older crowd and the service... More

Great spot for dinner and or a drink that stays open late. You can expect great food, wine, and full bar including the crisp Chimay ale on tap, the hot game on the TV and good music playing over the sound system and the crowd upscale with Brentwood locals and a few visitors from out of town. Valet parking always... More

The Brentwood is a nice cozy restaurant, wonderful for a romantic dinner, or dinner with friends. The lighting is nice and low, but bright enough to read your menu. I started with the Tricolore salad with Myer Lemon, so fresh, my girlfriend had the Ahi Tuna Tartare, I highly recommend! I had the Branzino, sautéed baby spinach, roasted cherry tomato.... More
