This five star, outstanding restaurant, depended upon the skill of its chef, John Bentley, who has now retired and fine dining must be found elsewhere.

If you like John Bentley's you need go soon since the owner is retiring and closing the business. I had the hanger steak last night and it was terrific. They have an extensive wine list but it is a little pricey.

Was pleasantly surprised with this wonderful restaurant. The atmosphere was warm, cozy and not loud, which was amazing! Enjoyed an amazing Beet/Ravioli salad and sumptuous sword fish. Our waiter Dean was the most pleasant person and it felt like we had a private dining experience. I would recommend this fine establishment to anyone looking for good food, drink, desserts, appealing atmosphere and service.

A traditional and very good restaurant, Barman great value. Food was great, with a very clear and succinct summary of ingredients and sauces by said barman. Not cheap, but an upmarket and very good restaurant.

Bentley's is a local favorite opened by long time resident John Bentley years ago. It is a great place to have a nice lunch or dinner. Not necessarily for every day dining. More for special occasions. Choosing between the salmon and the chicken salad at lunch is a very hard choice. They do not serve the chicken salad at dinner so be sure to get it if you go for lunch. Pretty much every entree is fantastic. And so is the sticky pudding!!!
