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.

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

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. We were looking for a nice restaurant that served chicken fingers as our daughter wanted chicken fingers, but the rest of the family did not! I had the crab torta for an appetizer, while my husband had the octopus arrabiata and our 14 year old had the steak... More
