Brentwood Restaurant & Wine Bistro Ratings and Reviews
We came to celebrate three birthdays, my mom's 81st, my husband's 52nd, and my 54th. The table was set for a birthday, and the server was amazing. My mom's crab cake was a bit salty, and she did eat 3/4 of it before saying anything, (well, she's 81), however, the owner quickly came over, apologized, and they took them off the line. They also gave my mom's meal for free, which was not at all necessary. We live in River Hills and this will now become one of our favorite spots to eat. Thank you to the owner and the entire staff!
Where to begin with Jeff?
Hand on food, negligence on drink order, incompetinence dealing with wine spill on 2 tables and my friend's white pants.
No one offered to give my friend any compensation for red wine stained pants. Or remove stained tablecloths and replace with clean tablecloths.
Over priced lobster tail and over cooked chocolate soufflés.
For a restaurant with almost 5 stars we expected better service, better food and management that treats customers with respect and grace.
Wonderful food in a 1910 Victorian home prepared by a creative chef/owner who twice won the Coastal Uncorked "Iron Chef" competition. The salads and the main courses were outstanding. My wife had Coquille St. Jacques, which she desrcibed as amazing. I had the shrimp and scallops Chardonnay, a chef Eric Masson creation and it was also amazing. The salads, bread and deserts (Creme Brûlée flambé) were also outstanding. The service, regrettably, was not up to the food standard. The waiter was not helpful or will definitely return. They have a "Ghost Night" which could be interesting.
Located in a charming historic house in Little River, SC. The staff was welcoming and very attentive all during the meal. Dinner was well prepared and presented. We had the early evening special which consisted of a lovely salad, choice of about 6 entrees, and dessert. Everything tasted wonderful. I especially enjoyed the Key Lime Charlotte. My husband's favorite part of the meal was the boneless beef short ribs.
A beautiful Mansion house felt French all over. Spectacular front porch to enjoy and after dinner drink. Food was worthy and prices were decent. Service was as good as it gets. Ambiance a total winnner. We were in the upstairs area where the walls were covered in well placed 1/2 corks, very cool. Glad we went there and I may come back on another vacation just to go there again.
Brentwood is always great dining experience. Service was excellent. We've eaten here a number of times and the food has always been wonderful. My steak this last time was just ok. It was just a bit tough, but that can happen anywhere. In spite of that we will definitely go back.
I simply can not say enough about the entire dining experience at The Brentwood. You are welcomed like family and the food is so far superior to even the great restaurants we have been to in Italy and France. We are so fortunate to have Eric and Kimberlee's restaurant here in Little River.
Been to Brentwood many times, when with couple visiting from N.H. and was an off night for Brentwood. Our friends really enjoyed the wine list , best duck A'Lorange he ever had, the wives really enjoyed the shrimp and scallops my filet was just right (mr). They were pleased with our choice of restaurant.
We had a wonderful meal, with a great wait staff. My husband and I have been here in the past, numerous times. Always have had a great meal with wonderful presentation and taste. Their house wine is an excellent value, with aroma and taste. Can't wait to go back again.
I took my wife to The Brentwood for her birthday. I noticed on the Wine List that they served Cristal, so after placing my reservation online I called to make sure that they would have a bottle on hand. Fonda was our server. As soon as we sat down, she had the bottle of Cristal in hand and ready to pop the cork. She was able to answer any question we had about the menu and told us that she always tasted any new items for just that purpose. Wanting to try something new, we had the Pan-Seared Duck Foie Gras appetizer and it was amazing. The Filet Mignon was grilled perfectly and the Filet Wellington was equally delicious. For dessert we shared the Chocolate Souffle, which was a special for the night and had to be ordered with our Entrees. It was mouthwatering and the 2 sauces complimented it to perfection. We will definitely be returning for future visits.
We really enjoy The Brentwood and try to dine here at least a few times while we're staying in NMB. This time though it seemed that for the waitresses convenience everyone was seated in the same area of the bistro. We sat at the two person window table which we like but were surrounded by nine other diners at three other tables adjacent to ours. The evening was not as intimate as we usually enjoy here.
Another great dinner at The Brentwood. The oysters Rockefeller are incredible. I tried them at Antoine's in New Orleans last month and the Brentwoods version was so much better. Whatever the fresh fish is, get it. They do a great job and you can really tell the difference between fresh and frozen. I got the chocolate souffle and did not share. If you order it, have your spouse get their own! Can't wait to dine again, see you next month Brentwood.
We live in the area and this was a bad experience. They were apparently having a big dinner with their wine club members. As a result, our experience was very bad. I ordered beets and goat cheese with my salad and it was not included. The bread did not show up until the end of the meal. My husband expressed to the server that he was interested in getting a French wine, but the server recommended a California Chardonnay. When we told the server that we did not enjoy the meal and he basically agreed with us and told us he had voluntarily demoted himself from a manager position because of the issues we were expressing. The last time we tried this restaurant we had gone in December and the owner (Eric) was sitting with another group and we had a similarly bad experience. Sadly, this restaurant has focused completely on large groups and it is no longer a good place to go as a couple. We will not be back. There are many better choices in the area for a special occasion.
Delicious french inspired food at reasonable prices. Beautiful, old Victorian style restaurant which was someones home long ago. I truly enjoyed the fish stew which had lobster, scallops, shrimp and a white fish in it. Best i ever had really. It was spicy and absolutely delicious. Can't wait to go back and have it again. Happy hour is from 4-7 and worth getting to for a drink at the bar before dinner. A must try place!!!
