This restaurant offers high end ambiance and cuisine. A full service bar caters to the early birds. The attentive servers show you to well appointed booths and tables. The menu offers impeccably prepared meat and seafood dinners rivaling the best of the best. My chicken cordon blue and my friends salmon were well prepared, presented and delicious.

Had an excellent dinner Sunday @ Bentley's! Reservations are definitely recommended. Check out their specials on Sunday and Monday nights! Filet, Prime Rib, and Salmon entries are priced @ 15.99, a heck of a bargain! Our server (Rachael) was just excellent! A very nice dining experience.

Despite the upper crust location, Bentleys is comfortable, friendly, welcoming, and provides great service every time. We know because we have dined there often over the past five years. The steaks, salmon and especially prime rib come out perfect to specifications every time and delicious. Veggies are Always perfectly cooked never cold. Everyone we have brought, family, friends, kids All... More

Visiting friends in Solana Beach, we treated them to a Sunday dinner at a restaurant of their choosing. We didn't know Bentley's but they sure did. They have lived in this area for decades and this was their favourite place to eat out. And now I know why. The atmosphere is really great, but I have to say their beef... More

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
