Bentley's Oyster Bar & Grill

Once again opening its doors to great critical acclaim serving oysters, fish and seafood in much the same way it has since 1916. Linen-clad tables, a wooden floor and Richard’s art collection adorn the walls creating a warm and friendly atmosphere.
Bentley's Oyster Bar and Grill also has two beautiful private dining rooms. The Crustacea seats up to 14 and the Swallow Street Rooms, with it's own private bar and street entrance, seats up to 60.

Unfortunately after going to Bentleys for around 15 years it was the first occasion I left disappointed!
The charge of £15 for one very mediocre Luke warm prawn was shocking and the fish soup tasted nothing like it always had previously
The change in menu resulting in the hike in prices left a very bitter taste
The front of house and bar staff were all very professional and polite and provided a bit of craic at the bar
Birthday treat with friend. Staff were wonderful and oysters perfection. Nice Chablis too
Food and ambience was very good but the service left a lot to be desired. It appeared that the staff were very focussed on other ya les maki g it very hard to get their attention for additional drinks . E en after catching g their eye they still didn’t attend us.
As always a first class experiance at my fav restaurant!! 👍🙌
My starter of lobster bisque was reasonably tasty but a bit watery whereas my main course of Dover sole fillets with crab butter was excellent - as was the side dish of skinny chips. Service, for a rate of 13.5%, should have been exceptional but sadly fell down on a number of fronts. Cheerful it was but efficient it was not. Especially annoying when customers are neglected as soon as the main course has been served. By no means unusual in restaurants generally but frustrating nonetheless. Very expensive.
Tables too close together. We experienced very slow service. Ambient music barely heard. Disappointed.
We went for valentine’s celebration and the experience wasn’t great from the start: first, the glass and table mat at my seat was not clean from some sludge which luckily the waiter was happy to replace them with clean ones, then they broke my boyfriend’s wine glass when giving us the menus.
Food was ok but wasn’t good enough to match the expensive price. We ordered oysters, crispy squid, lobster bisque, beef tartare, lobster tempura and lobster thermidor. The oysters were on point. The lobster bisque doesn’t taste much of lobster, the lobster was overcooked and chewy in both lobster dishes and the beef tartare was better than all the seafood dishes except the oysters.
I had been to other seafood restaurants for oysters and seafood and this was the least satisfying experience I have had.
Excellent flavours and attentive service in crisp decent surroundings...Richard was our waiter who an asset to the Bentleys.
Great food and service
I have going to Bentleys for 40+ years ....not every year .....the service was very good to table and the Dover soles were excellent. Just wish for a little more' elbow room " !
Dinner after a matinee. Sat at the bar and served by Frederico. Bentley’s is the perfect English upscale restaurant. Food is always excellent and consistent. Every person is treated with respect and a smile. Thank you for being there all these years.
This was a special celebration for us and Bentley's did not disappoint ! From the moment the door man opened the door I knew it was going to be a fabulous experience and it was. The piano player was superb the food delicious and the service just right and the ambiance in the downstairs restaurant was so relaxing. We were a little nervous of having our first oyster but we are now converts to the Galway ones. We shall be back !
Friendly and relaxed
Beautiful outside area under heaters
Great oysters both native and farmed, followed by nicely cooked fish and an interesting cheese plate. Excellent and reliable.
One of London’s oldest fish and seafood restaurants, tucked away in a quiet lane off Piccadilly. Seating at tables inside, outside on the heated terrace or inside at the bar (my preference).
Good selection of fresh oysters daily and excellent fish and seafood as well as a few grilled meat options for carnivores.
Highly professional service. Great ambience. Not cheap (£100+ per person), but value for money.
Beautifully cooked and presented seafood in a gorgeous dining room with impeccable service, made for a really special celebratory meal!
It's a good solid place to enjoy fish, I thoroughly enjoyed my crispy squid and smoked haddock, my partner ordered the veal cheeks, we considered them under-cooked, the chef considered them fine, what do we know...? the fish stew was good however. Can't recall the name of our excellent waitress but it begins with 'A' and has five letters.
Made to feel very welcome, great ambience and lovely food/drinks for a date night.
Food was lovely but the service was absolutely shocking.
Like going back in time. Intimate venue. Nice food Quite expensive.
Great food - great ambiance
Let down a little by a young Chineese man in training shoes and a baseball cap on the next table. “Smart casual”?
I tipped £80 - enough said...
Delicious and interesting menu and wine with great service. Will return.
Great place to dine, staff were lovely, welcoming and accommodating. Told them we had to go to the Theatre, however, preferred the a la carte menu, so the staff ensured that we got our food on time, without compromising the taste. Would definitely recommend.
Great service, lovely servers. Very happy. Thank you.
Great venue with attentive staff. The food and wine was fantastic. Well worth the visit.
The place is superb, the food has a modern touch, which makes it better than (for example) J Sheekey.
Lovely meal and fantastic service - would highly recommend
Always a pleasant surprise, a wonderful atmosphere and very attentive staff. The food is also top quality
Overpriced, and not good enough for tjis level of price
Great restaurant. Small tight seating an the price was the only downfall. The service was amazing and the food was also on point. The lobster bisque is to die for. If your not worried about price this is the restaurant for you. Dover sole and the lobster spaghetti were both great choices. Honestly, can’t say enough about our server. She was fantastic and I’m sorry I forgot her name.
We were assigned a table on ground floor even we have booked the restaurant weeks ago. The seat is not spacious enough and I think it should not be happened in such a gourmet restaurant.
Food is averaging good but the oysters are not top fresh. Bread and soup are soso too.
We visited for dinner before seeing a show and the food was wonderful!!
Best fish pie ever
As always the food was excellent and the service impeccable. Only problem was OpenTable insisting that we could only have a table if we arrived at 11.30. We were sent away to shop some more and returned at 1230 to a comfortable table. Phone and adjust your dinner time!
The service was the main reason why the restaurant has such a low overall waiting. The servers were not friendly and was mildly condescending. Their speed was at their own leisure. We waited 30 minutes before they brought the menus to us, and another 30 minutes for them to bring us the three bottles of wine we ordered. Very disappointing.
Great food and excellent service. Would definitely return!
The food I had was outstanding
Beautiful monk fish curry
Beautiful fish and chips
Good fish pie.
We lived it and will come back
Wonderful food and excellent service. We sat downstairs, by the oyster bar, which is our favourite part of the restaurant. Amazing, as always.
Pleasant staff when they were waved at so we could order. Food disappointing and so seemed expensive. . Seems like Bentleys is trading on its past glory. First and last visit.
