The chefs here are so ridiculously nice and prepare great food. The bar staff is super nice, make strong/well mixed drinks. Great place for HH on the island!

Went here for a Birthday dinner. The food was ok. Nothing special. They try to be Chic but fall flat on that subject. The kale salad was mediocre at best. I would recommend this restaurant for lunch but not for dinner. The service was good....More

A nice place to meet for happy hour or dinner. Good wines by the glass, and the mac and cheese is heavenly!

Bennett's does a great job of providing really fresh, locally sourced food at a reasonable price. Strongly recommend!

We dined at Bennett's a few nights ago. The food was very good and the ambience hums with the background of conversation that easily comes from a neighborhood restaurant. The salmon and lemon risotto are especially good.

Bennetts know for their excellent macaroni, it's delist! We love their burgers, and they have a great tomato soup. The atmosphere is bustling, wait staff is friendly and efficient. Wine list is good, and seems moderate compared to other nice restaurants. Great for lunch too!

Menu is very interesting & looks like it would be a delicious meal but it wasn't that great! Probably will not go back!

What a nice place - we stopped at Bennett's for a late midweek dinner without reservations and had no problem being seated. We were tired and not in the mood for a big dinner and both ordered their burger. Wow! One of the best burgers...More

Unremarkable food in a noisy, crowded room. Impersonal, slow service. Minimal dishes, “pour encourager les autres” to buy such essential items as potatos/fries or bread, at outrageous price of “sides”. Great for those undemanding souls on a diet. Perhaps a visit to a nice, Chinese...More

Although both the food and service at Bennett's Bistro were excellent, there is no reason for price gouging. Perhaps the residents of Mercer Island do not have many dining choices, but luckily there are numerous other great restaurant options available in both Seattle and Bellevue....More
