Bentley’s is in the good part of town. Rancho Santa Fe. Restaurant Week is when we venture out to fine dining establishments without blowing my paycheck. Bentley’s is one of those places with nice tablecloths where you aren’t required to dress up but you might be out of place if you don’t.
Walking up to the front entrance couldn’t help but notice the beautifully decorated outside patio seating area. My eye went to all the well cared for plants adorning the posts.
We were greeted by Brian as we entered and shown to an impeccably neat table complete with deep, rich colored wood and captivating glass design dividers.
Since it’s Restaurant week we ordered off their special menu offered. You have your choice of three selections each; including an appetizer, main course and dessert. Love how they have suggested wine pairings for main course selection.
My appetizer was spinach salad with honey-mustard dressing, sliced apple, almonds and dried cranberries. This dressing was very impressive in taste, texture and balance.
Main course was Alaskan Halibut lightly covered in an exquisite sauce, cooked to perfection and melted in your mouth. The au gratin potatoes paired quite nicely.
For dessert I picked the Gianduja Mousse which had numerous distinctive layers of flavors including hazelnut brandy and chocolate. Supremely velvety, decadent concoction.
Our waitress delivered classy impeccable service ensuring our experience was beautiful. Definitely would come back here again.
