Bentley's Oyster Bar & Grill


Now in its ninth decade, Bentley’s first opened its doors in 1916 in the same beautiful old Victorian building it occupies today. From the outset this famous oyster bar and grill, captured the vibrant mood of a metropolis about to embrace the roaring twenties.

Offered the chance to restore the iconic Bentley’s to its former glory when it came up for sale in 2005, Chef Richard Corrigan embraced the challenge. Following a sensitive refurbishment, Bentley’s once again opened its doors to great critical acclaim serving oysters, fish and seafood in much the same way it has since 1916.

We stared off with the oysters which were absolutely delicious. Fresh, grainy with a beautiful taste of the ocean sand.

Bentleys is a place made for 5 star reviews! Simple as that really. Owner/operated by the esteemed Richard Corrigan this place is a celebration of all that it is to be an oyster bar.

Had a lunch here today as I missed another reservation I had made because a meeting ran late...

It's located off a bustling street in Piccadilly and has a more casual downstairs and a more formal upstairs. I didn't realize this until the end of my meal, but if you have the choice, I'd opt for downstairs.

I started out with incredible gougères filled with oozing cheese. Their bread basket...more

We were greeted by a gentleman with a French accent which I believe is the manger of restaurant. He highly recommended the fish cake which he said the chef only made around 10 of those each night. We ordered a bottle of Paul Dethune Grand Cru Brut Champagne, matched very well with the seafood.

Recommended dishes: fish cake, fish pie (inside there are scallops, lobster meat, and fish) , dover...more
