I go here a lot- it has a neighborhood vibe and the food is predictably good. I especially dote on the crab salad and the tomato soup- in fact its hard to branch out and try other things because I like these two so much I just can't resist ordering them. Nice wine list too and the wines of the... More

The last three times we have been to Bennett's for lunch it was disappointing to say the least! Once ordered Crab Louie and finally found the crab! One pierce very small. 1-26-17 ordered Mussels and asked if they were plump and was told they were. When served the plate was full of nice size shells but out of the large... More

Great service with excellent coffee and scones are a perfect way to begin Sunday breakfast! The scrambles and hash options were very tasty and generous portions. Will certainly return on my next trip to the island.

Nice evening with friends and a very good waiter. The food was delicious and well thought out. They were able to accommodate our allergy needs with no trouble at all. The only downside is that the wine list is overpriced with most wines at 3x retail.

I live walking distance from downtown Mercer Island and am glad to have a great restaurant for special celebrations. Wonderful, imaginative food but not to the extent of being weird. Quite Expensive.

We visited Bennett's based on the location and the reviews with our group of friends. We enjoyed the food and drink but I felt our server needed to work on his customer service skills...could have been an off day but "a" smile goes along way...

We've eaten at Bennett's Bistro before many times and have always been a bit disappointed with the food compared to its brother in University Village. This time we changed our food choices and were impressed. The corn soup with corn nuts was just delicious as was the roasted chicken with potato gratin. We look forward to returning.

Good place, with good food and bar. Seating available near open front on nice days and outside patio. A bit pricey, but caters to well- heeled Mercerites, who don't seem to mind. Friendly, professional service.

We needed to grab a quick lunch on the run last week. Melinda, my boss said to find a bistro in Downtown Mercer Island. Bennet's came up on my Smartphone--the one and only. The menu looked intriguing so we hunted it down. It was not a day for an elaborate or leisurely meal. Fortunately, Bennet's salad menu perfectly suited out... More

Enjoyed the happy hour at Bennett's during the week. Service was attentive. We enjoyed the kale salad, Mac & cheese, and pork burgers. Everything was tasty, with the exception of the salmon burgers. The portions of the burgers are small also.
