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.

Went for dinner, on a date. The service is immediate and impeccable. Gave us a great recommendation for wine. Opened and poured it perfectly. White-glove service. The food was outstanding. The duck salad came with a to-die-for pate. Everything was good, up to and including the cheese plate for dessert.
This is a beautiful, old-school restaurant that I wouldn't miss. Probs wouldn't come for...more
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
Holy mackerel! The mackerel nettle soup is to die for! As are the spring salad and Dover oysters. Lovely little patio dining experience!more
This is a favorite stop of ours. Excellent fresh seafood and shellfish in a great environment. I particularly like the prepared crab appetizer.
Cozy, pub-like interior. On a nice day it's great to dine in the covered area out front.
The wine selection is particularly well-suited to fish and especially the shellfish selections. You can't go wrong with the Albarino.more
