Good place for a quiet, comfortable meal

Small, intimate restaurant/bar. Good food if not too adventuresome. It's nice because you can actually hear yourself talk and maintain a level of privacy. The service is excellent. The more I think about it, the more I like it.

I love a place where a lot of locals come back over and over again. The Brentwood is that kind of place. Good wine selection, excellent selection of food on the menu and a nice atmosphere.

We like this restaurant but have to say their prices are almost out of line. Five of us ate there, two people split a burger, one person only had a salad and the alcohol consisted of only one glass of moderately priced wine and the bill was still about $200 incl tip.

Went there for dinner to celebrate our 6 year old daughter's birthday.

I had the crab torta for an appetizer, while my husband had the octopus arrabiata and our 14 year old had the steak... More

We went to this restaurant as it was close by to our hotel - the dimly lit lights made our chicken look uncooked and red inside which immediately put us off our food. It was also annoying how everytime you had a sip of your drink they filled it back up again. Might be good for locals but doesn't really... More

Excellent food, service, cocktails and wine selection. A rare kind of chic old school elegance about this place, while still feeling modern. It must be the excellent service!

Food is average at best, the restaurant is a small room with no atmosphere and the servers are local students. Just not that good.

This restaurant simply has the best food. Their meals are prepared with fresh vegetables from the local farmers markets and obviously prepared with care. The service is excellent and the atmosphere is fun but also low key.
