Service is excellent. Food is average (unfortunately, all our order was quite salty) and not good value for money (the portion was too small for its cost). A very great ambiance for a special occasion.

This is hands down the best restaurant in Sydney including all the three hatted ones. Enough said.

Tasting menus was great though very full at the end. Ideally 35% less food and 35% less cost. Thanks

Solid dry aged beef but entrees and in particular desserts were a bit of a let down. Also pretty shocking service for such a fancy pants place.

Bentley is up there with the best Sydney has to offer - inventive menu, great wine list, excellent staff and a beautiful room. It is easy to rave about the fresh produce well cooked etc etc. but one of the real features is the space between the tables which give a real sense of luxury and feeling of being special. Highly recommended

When the trend now days is away from fine dining it is significant that The Bentley Restaurant and Bar continues to deliver a quality befitting excellence.

About Bentley Restaurant & Bar

The Bentley was opened in March 2006 by Chef Brent Savage and Sommelier Nick Hildebrandt in a former pub in Surry Hills. It was a new kind of restaurant for Sydney – one where the food could challenge and inspire you, but in a relaxed atmosphere where you could find an eclectic list of wines not offered anywhere else. With Brent’s flavoursome food and Nick’s love of introducing customers to wines by international boutique producers, the Bentley quickly earned a reputation for leading diners to some new and exciting places. The vision paid off and Bentley was named ‘Best New Restaurant’ at the Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Food Guide Awards, as well as earning two Chef’s hats and a coveted wine glass, which it has retained ever since.
