John Bentley's hosted our private dinner for 25 upstairs in their private dining room. Couldn't have asked for a better venue. Parking was convenient, service was exceptional and the food was outstanding. The staff was very easy to communicate with in planning the event and made the whole process very easy. Definitely recommend.

This is an amazing restaurant that I kept putting off for 3 years. Everyone on the peninsula should try it.

Everything was so good that I only wish I had arrived with a bigger apitite, but then again there are return visits which will for sure be in the future. On this evening I had an artichoke soup which was very nice and the grilled watermelon salad with crab which was great. Also at the table was the duck salad,... More

We have been here several times and always have a great meal with excellent service. John changes it up depending on what is in season and I love that. Can't wait for those fig appetizers with gorgonzola cheese - so good!

This is the second time I have visited John Bentley's. The previous time I was with friends from the area who dine there regularly. This time we came on our own because my wife liked the look of the menu. I did not realize until we were pulling up to the restaurant that I had dined there before. We shared... More

we go to JB's for A LOT of celebrations...b'days, anniversarys, whatever, and have NEVER been disappointed. We were there Oct.23rd...wonderful as always. The duck salad is always excellent, as is the ahi, hangar steak, scallops, and everything else on the menu. The service is very attentive without being overbearing! One of our favorites!

A stylish old school but not stodgy place. The food was good, especially the gorgonzola-stuffed figs and the lingcod special. The bartenders and servers were also very professional which tips this review up to four stars.

Found John Bently's on google and decided to make reservation without even reading reviews. Called on a Friday night (June 14) for a 9:30 reservation and the man answering the phone said they were full. When I explained we were picking up our son at the airport at midnight, he put me on hold to double check. He came back... More
