Brentwood Restaurant & Wine Bistro Ratings and Reviews
We have dined at The Brentwood several times during our stays in North Myrtle Beach and have always enjoyed eating there. The service and food have always been excellent. Along the way we've had the steaks, both rib-eye and filet, the rack of lamb, duck, beef wellington, and bouillabaisse as well as several of the appetizers. Everything is always done to perfection.
Very disappointing. The server was not trained for high quality service. She was pleasant but loud. The bus boy was also not trained well. They clanged dishes, noisily crumbled the paper as they pulled it off a table to reset it, and touched all the tops of the flatware as they were setting the table.
The food was okay, but not the quality we were expecting. The shrimp and scallops were undercooked. We will not be returning.
We went to the Brentwood for Valintines day. We had dinner one other time at the Brentwood and had a wonderful experience. However, this time was totally different. For one, The service was poor. The waitress was slow to come to our table with the water and bottle of wine. We had to ask for bread twice from the young lady cleaning the tables as our server forgot to provide bread.
We had a 7:00 pm reservation and the restaurant was not full. They put us between two four top tables when other tables were available in our room and other rooms in the restaurant. It was very loud. Not a quiet evening we were expecting.
When the manager came to our table asking about our evening, we were honest about our poor experience. His only response was, " well it's Valentin s Day, its to be expected". For the price of the set menu and the average food and poor service, this was a poor value for an expensive evening. I would not recommend the Brentwood for special occasions.
This was our first time at Brentwood and we loved it! The staff was incredibly gracious and the ambiance was just lovely. Wonderful table service! Our only complaint is that we ordered an appetizer that they were out of (even though we dined early) and our server wasn't aware of it until she put the order in. My husband also ordered an after-dinner cognac that was on the menu but which they actually didn't have in stock. But there were lots of other choices so this was a mere wrinkle in the fabric!
We dined at The Brentwood on a Tuesday night in February. The place was packed. It's in a historic white mansion home and the feel is cozy, romantic, elegant and intimate. Our waiter Chris was Fantastic. Personable, funny and really knowledgeable about the wine and food. He recommended an excellent wine for us in the price point we were looking. And his food expertise on how they could prepare dishes more to my liking was very helpful. For example, I ordered the Duck, but I like Duck crispy on the outside and a lot of times they don't crisp up the outside enough and it's just kind of fatty. Chris had them prepare it perfectly for me. My husband ordered the shrimp and scallops over angel hair pasta, which the chef won an Iron Chef competition with, and it was excellent as well. We've been to a lot of fine dining restaurants in the North Myrtle/Myrtle beach area, this is definitely one of the best...and other then being in the Little River area...I'm not sure why we didn't know or hear about the quality of this place before. We've owned a condo in North Myrtle for a number of years. I think I'll post this review on Trip Advisor as well. And I don't work or own or friends with any of the owners or wait staff. It was just that good.
This was our first time at the Brentwood. I am sorry it took so long to get there. Everything about the restaurant was perfection. We now have found our favorite restaurant in the South East, maybe anywhere!!! The details to my birthday dinner from table setting to desert was wonderful. Thank you for making us feel welcomed.
We selected this restaurant for a dining group occasion. It was a quiet evening in historic home. The service was excellent, the food good, the wine pairings good. The waiter went out of his way to ensure that our meals were to our liking. The pre fix diner with wine pairings was an excellent value. They have an early pre fix dinner that we would definitely like to try. We will definitely be back and recommend the Brentwood to others.
This is not the first time we dined at Brentwood. We've eaten there several times and have always enjoyed the food. We had relatives from out of state visiting and wanted to treat them to a nice dinner. It was restaurant week so the Brentwood was busy and we all felt that our waiter was not as attentive as the waiters we've had in the past. He was a nice guy and agreeable but the crowded conditions resulted in slower service and the waiter forgetting to bring our wine, forgetting to bring lemons for our water; little things like that. The food was good but we all ordered off of the fixed prix menu for the evening. That made it a very good bargain but in all honesty while our guests enjoyed the meal, I've had better meals there off of their regular menu. I had the stuffed flounder and it was ok but not great. The mushroom soup was good, although I much prefer the She Crab Soup. All in all it was a good experience though and I'd still recommend the restaurant as the service and food are usually much better.
Dining at the Brentwood is always a pleasure ! We've been going there for several years and have never had a bad meal. The food is always exceptional as well as the service. The staff is always friendly and willing to please. It's our favorite place to take company because it never disappoints. If you haven't been to the Brentwood before you need to go !!
This was our 1st time at the Brentwood. I went onto their website and noticed they had a pre-fixed early bird menu. Three course for $20.00/person. We thought we could go and get a feel for how the food would be before going and ordering from their normal menu. When we got there and saw the pre-fixed menu, it was totally changed regarding the food selections and the price was $30 as opposed to $20. We mentioned this to our server and he apologized and offered to take off $5 per person for the inconvenience. I asked him to please mention this to the owner so that they could update their website. Would have thought the owner would come over to apologize....but nothing. We also overheard another table mention the same thing with regard to what they saw on the website and what was offered on the menu. The food was disappointing. I ordered the butternut squash ravioli....it was OK. There were 4 ravioli on the plate.....could have at least offered 6. My husband and our 2 friends were also not impressed with their selections. The food seemed liked it was already pre-made and just reheated. We may give this restaurant one more chance.
This was our First visit to the Brentwood. We enjoyed the visit. Food was very good, service was exceptional, ambiance was very nice. We would recommend the Brentwood to friends looking for something a little special, not the typical run of the mill restaurant in Myrtle Beach area. Very enjoyable change of pace.
This was a super restaurant with excellent dishes and wine, Excellent place to go for a quiet romantic dinner. Special touch! Our server was very good and friendly, as were other staff members. It would be nice if they carried some French beers. A little pricy - glad we went during Restaurant Week.
There are many good restaurants in the North Myrtle Beach/Little River area, and, in my opinion, the Brentwood Restaurant is at the very top of that list. We come south for a month or two each winter, and we always make sure to get in a visit to the Brentwood. The food is excellent, and if you're here in January, you can take advantage of a great 3 course package during Restaurant Week South Carolina.
My friend & I loved the Brentwood. When we arrived we were greeted warmly & showed to our table by a window. We loved all the wine cork on the walls & the antiques around the restaurant.Our waitress-Kristin-was very knowledgeable about the menu & the history of the restaurant. The food is delicious & the wine enjoyable. We got to meet the owner-Eric-& converse with him about a restaurant he had owned near where we live in upstate New York. Overall I would highly recommend the Brentwood to all my friends.
Our first experience at Brentwood restaurant was very satisfying. We had seven diners in our party and all were extremely complimentary. Everyone loved the food and the service was exceptional. The wine was wonderful and the suggested pairings were very helpful. We can't wait to return!!!
Went for restaurant week menu - mushroom soup was delicious, as was the pear and blue cheese salad. My husband had the stuffed flounder which he enjoyed. I had the pork calvados which was very tasty, however the pork was a bit tough. Would have been better with tenderloin. The house wine was quite good and dessert was yummy!
Fabulous meal to celebrate our January anniversary- the venue was not busy this time of year but the food and wines were still outstanding. The surf and turf (prime rib and lobster tail) special for $29 can't be beat. And the escargot appetizer is to die for. Ambience was very romantic in the front room and our server Jeff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable without being too overbearing. We will always go here for special occasions and whenever we have friends from out of town visiting.
Brentwood never fails to deliver a scrumptious, memorable dinner! We were down in the Myrtle Beach area to ring in the new year and made a special point to dine at Brentwood in celebration of a milestone December birthday. Couldn't have made a better choice. Our favorite dishes include scallops, which Chef knows how to make consistently delicious with every bite followed by a "mmmm, yum"! This particular evening the bouillabaisse was especially excellent as well. And the chocolate soufflé is always a heavenly experience. If you want a guaranteed fantastic meal and are within a half hour of Brentwood, you must go the distance. Also, notable is an extensive, quite reasonably priced wine menu.
Another Open Table find left very little to be desired. A unique setting in a Victorian mansion; a former residence and B&B inn serving the fishermen of bygone days. The site was most impressively and uniquely restored and decorated. Chef Eric's collection of wine tools and corks was proudly displayed throughout! Corks; word was 30,000+ were on the walls, primarily in the upstairs/Bistro. Most impressive!!!
Excellent service by Jeff; small rooms of minimal tables and plenty of room. The chef offered an amuse bouche of salmon pate on a cucumber slice. Nothing special but a great way to begin the meal. We shared a steaming bowl of She Crab Soup; wonderfully hot and smooth! An immediately corrected issue of minor concern; excellent service continues! We elected salads of the garden variety; one with Port-wine poached pears & bleu cheese, the other with roasted beets and goat cheese. Both supremely fresh and well accompanied.
Entrees included a full rack of lamb ribs, allegedly of Australian origin rather than New Zealand and a Surf Trio of Shrimp, Crab Cake and Lobster Tail. The lamb was fall-off-the-bone tender (knife optional) and highly flavorful without any hint of distracting strength. The seafood; well it's South Carolina. Of course it was good in a place like this. Great accompaniments accented each entree.
With advanced warning and notice, Jeff encouraged the Belgian Chocolate Souffle. Bravo Jeff! A fresh from the oven, dark, flavorful chocolate with both raspberry and creme Anglaise accented a wonderful ending!
Very good, special and unique offerings throughout. Jeff's service was attentive, informative and just warm enough to make it special. Even Chef Eric came out to check on us as well as the hostess and others. Great job all!
Don't be in a hurry; you can't rush quality! Take the time to look around also; most interesting for the eyes and palate. Take the time to enjoy; you'll be happy you did.
Our dinner was absolutely the best we have ever had in the Myrtle Beach area. I had oysters Rockerfellow for my appetizer. Delicious, as Google as any I've had in New Orleans
We both had the chefs special, prime rib and lobster tail. Again, superb
The chocolate souffle was delicious. This is a great restsurant, try it
