Brentwood Restaurant & Wine Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Perfect for every day and special occasion dining
Greeted at the door by owner/Executive Chef Eric Masson with the warmth and grace expected of this and other outstanding worldwide restaurants. Added personal touch of welcoming our friends and congratulating them on celebrating their anniversary set the stage for an outstanding evening. Freshly prepared food and service were outstanding. Pace of serving each item was perfectly timed from beverages to dessert. Appetizers, freshly baked piping hot bread, salads and soup were prepared to perfection. Small plates and main entrees were a marriage flavors and textures. Excellent wine list with great values including house label wines. Overall Brentwood Restaurant and Wine Bistro was a great value especially for such an outstanding dining experience.
once again a hit
an annual event for anniversary. It is a MUST do.
We took a visiting friend to the Brentwood and it was a wonderful experience. The food was amazing and the service was stellar. Our friend said it was the best meal she had the entire three months she was in the area. We will definitely travel the twenty nine miles it takes to come back!
Great service, food and wine!

Oysters, Oyster, Oysters!!!! Best on the Beach
I am hooked on the Oysters Rockefeller. If you haven't tried them, hurry before I eat them all. They are not on the menu, but as a special. For my entrée I ordered the Grouper, excellent. My husband ordered the osso bucco, which was incredible. I had to steal some. The meat is so tender and tasty, I would order it next time. Maybe, if they didn't have Grouper. Service was excellent and we just love the atmosphere. We sat upstairs in the Bistro. The walls are covered with corks. They let you walk around to see the old house. It's even haunted. Anyway, highly recommend!!!

Fabulous horsdouvres such as green tomatoe stack and oyster Rockefeller.
Anniversary Dinner date
Our experience at the Brentwood was terrific. From our bartender/server Rhonda and her martini experience to the casual conversation about the restaurant with her we had a great time. Our seafood dishes were fresh and food was presented well. Meals are more on the pricey side, but you can't what you paid for, fresh and delicious. It's a great special occasion place for us. Kudos to the chef!
Brentwood Dining Experience
Our dining experience was 'ok'. We have eaten at other high-end restaurants in the area and had a better meal at a comparable price as the Brentwood. I ordered the filet mignon special which was excellent but the other dinners were just so-so for the price. We never received our salad and the waiter never figured that out. Service was just 'ok'.
A Brentwood Regular...
Our Brentwood experience is usually 5 stars; this particular night, not so much. I think our server was new, and I found the lobster bisque very salty and "fishy." I eat there with friends about every six weeks. If it weren't an hour away from my home, it would be much more often. The downstairs bar is intimate and charming. Excellent drinks, service, and appetizers. Their Parisian Menu special is always delicious. Opt for the pear and bleu cheese salad and don't miss the chocolate fondant.
My husband and I love this place. We dine here often and our last visit was great as always. I had the Oyster's Rockefeller and my husband had the escargot. Both excellent. For dinner I had the Shrimp & Scallops Chardonnay and my husband had the Duck Duo. The seafood dish won an award and the duck dish gives you the breast and a leg confit. We usually get these dishes and they are always very good. We couldn't leave without a couple profiteroles. If you haven't eaten here you are missing out on a great meal. We can't wait for the patio to open so we can dine outside!
Amazing first visit we loved this restaurant!
We had heard of this restaurant many times before from friends but had yet to give it a chance until tonight. My wife and I happened to be passing through Little River and decided to stop for dinner. We were worried about the fact we had no reservation but we were greeted warmly and sat right away. We loved the authentic European feel this place had as soon as we walked in the door. Needless to say dinner was absolutely amazing, the food was delicious, the service was truly on another level and we could not have been happier with our first experience. We even were lucky enough to be greeted by the owner Chef Eric it was a pleasure. Enough said we are more than excited for our next visit here! Thank You!
Went there on Feb 13th for Valentines Day. The server was horrible did not offer a wine list had to ask. Then he never brought the wine my wife ordered had to ask again twice. He brought me a beer and it was warm, when I ordered my wine it was not even half a glass. The appetizer was warm and the entrees were the same, food had no taste. A horrible experience!!
Overpriced and food was not hot when served
Not worth the price; Parson's Table is a much better value. Also, the special Valentine's Day menu and limited ala carte menu was not very appealing. Limited choice on salad dressing was not acceptable. Service was good.

First visit and certainly not the last. Great choices, food cooked to perfection and extremely professional wait staff. Add to that a quaint, romantic atmosphere and you have what it takes to be declared a true fine dining experience,
Worst dining experience one could imagine - very salty she crab soup, a salad that was tasteless, main entre served 30 minutes after ordering and served undercooked and cold. Very disappointing!
Great Meal with Family
Family and friends came to visit so we went to the Brentwood. Excellent meal. We had the Blue Crab Souffle, which if you haven't had it's worth trying. The escargot, the best in the area. Oysters Rockefeller, which are better than we had in New Orleans. Some of our dinners included OssoBucco, Triggerfish, Shrimp & Scallops Chardonnay and Duck confit. All of which I highly recommend. The Triggerfish was a special and was it ever delicious. If I see that on the menu I will order it again. The Osso Bucco was a big portion and very tasty. The Shrimp and Scallops were perfect, not too much and certainly not too little. Most of us ordered dessert. The Profiteroles were to die for and you had the option of ordering just one. The creme Brulee was very authentic, it wasn't made from a mix, tasted homemade. Our server Darby did an excellent job and was very attentive. My friends were very surprised that the prices were very reasonable for a French restaurant and the high quality of food. We highly recommend the Brentwood.

We finally had dinner at Brentwood - the food, wine, service, and ambience were as good as I had heard. A lovely evening, we will be back.
Oustanding Food And Service
My wife and I went to the Brentwood to celebrate her retirement. We couldn't pick a nicer place to celebrate. The Food and service was outstanding. Nate our waiter was very friendly and attentive to our needs all night long and gave us a tour of the restaurant and the bar area upstairs. We will definitely be back again.
My fiance and I hadn't been on a date night in a while due to our busy schedules and finally we had the same night off, so we figured we'd try The Brentwood out. I hadn't heard a lot about this spot, but the online reviews spoke very highly of it, and I'm always interested in trying out new things. The restaurant was well lit so it was easy to find and had ample parking so there was no long walk in (this was nice as it was 34 degrees outside). We were shown to our table upstairs near the bar which was nice as it was a little secluded from everyone else and very quiet. Our waiter was Reese, he seemed very knowledgeable of the menu, how things were prepared, and what wines to pair with our foods. My fiance and I each ordered the Paris 4 course dinner with the wine pairings, I got the escargot, pear and blue cheese salad, salmon, and creme brulee and my fiance got the mushroom appetizer (which we both figured to be along the lines of fried mushrooms, it is not, ask for an explanation as this is phenomenal), regular salad, duck, and the puff pastry. The food was perfect, in every way. The pace in which it came out of the kitchen was excellent, the wines that went with each course were fantastic, and in the end I was stuffed. I also ordered an Irish Coffee before my dessert and after all of that our bill came to a more then reasonable $130. I will be back to The Brentwood as often as my schedule allows, but unfortunately I live on the wrong side of Conway and it takes 45 minutes to get there.
beautiful restaurant, great service
went here for my birthday and really enjoyed seeing a little happy birthday message in a frame on my table along with some birthday confetti sprinkled on the table. made me feel really special! the service was amazing, and the food was great! the only reason i didn't give the food 5 stars is because it could have been much hotter coming out. i really want to have to blow on my mashed potatoes to cool them a bit before biting into them, but i didn't need to do that. all in all, this is a beautiful setting, great ambiance and service, and for a special occasion it's a great place to go!
When we asked for the private room upstairs we should have been advised that another group was also scheduled for the room. Expectation was we would be only one there. Some food was not served as hot as expected. Food taste was fine just not hot
Good food; frantic service.
6:30 reservation for 10 of us...right on time. From then on, we felt like we were being rushed out of there. Received our appetizers before getting our drinks. Barely finished our appetizers and the entrees were there. 2nd glass of wine appeared in time to enjoy with our desserts. Then came the checks...a fiasco. Only one of 5 was correct, and one needed to be sorted our by the manager. Of note: the she crab soup was excellent as was the fondant chocolat.

Restaraunt Week Special
Order two different items from the menu. While they were good there was nothing special about them. The server was good and reminded us that two glass of wine was offered with the items.
We had a delicious dinner. The wait staff could not have been better. Our cocktails were excellent, and the wine we chose from the extensive list paired perfectly with my dish, thanks in part to the paring listed on the menu.
Just wonderful on so many levels!
This restaurant is one of our favorites in the area. Delicious food, stellar service and such a special atmosphere. Highly recommend for a special evening out!

Pretty setting, good food and service. Had a really nice experience
Have eaten here many times. Always dependable. Classic French cooking. Tonight, a few days after New Years, they were a bit short handed regarding servers and backs. Service has typically been better and food delivered pipping hot. Tonight was slightly off, but will not cause me to not return. Chef owner is a gem, very personable and typically wanders around glad handing and making sure everything is just right. I always recommend to those looking for fine dining and particularly classic French cuisine.
Great Find in the Myrtle Beach Area
This is a charming house with quite a bit of character. Not the typical commercial restaurant, which was quite nice. The staff was very friendly, our waiter was Joe, and would recommend him highly. We were quite surprised to find this quality of food in the Myrtle Beach area given all the tourist type of seafood places that dominate the landscape. We had a reservation and we seated upstairs in a timely fashion. The menu is quite expansive and the wine list has a good range of affordable to expensive wines with after dinner beverages too. This restaurant is actually located in Little River, SC. The food has a french flair and quite tasty. The owner is a native Frenchman and quite a chef it seems. My wife and I plan to visit here again soon.
3 hour dinner
First time at this restaurant......seated at 7:05......finished dessert at 10:00. We had a party of 8 and when they FINALLY brought our entrees everyone was served except one person and they told her.....oops we are all out of salmon but we are making you a nice red fish. They did not tell her that they were out of her choice until they brought everyone else's meal......weird.....and they didn't ask her to make a different choice......double weird. Lucky for Brentwood that their food was very good but they made a poor first impression. The manager did come out and apologized AFTER we had waited nearly two hours for our entrees. Too little too late in my opinion. He also discounted everyone's check and gave us free dessert......however, we are not sure we will return.
Fine dining experience
Fine dining experience with a French flair. Many choices on the menu and everything we tried was delicious. OUr visit was highlighted by a visit from the chef/owner who offered charming conversation about his restaurant experiences at this location and elsewhere. Not inexpensive, but the ambiance was wonderful, the food was delicious and the service was exceptional. Would not hesitate to recommend it as a romantic, special occasion restaurant for people who recognize and appreciate fine food.

Service and food were great! Would recommend Brentwood to anyone, anytime.
Worth the trip
We've been coming to the Myrtle Beach area for several years now and we've never ventured up to Little River for dinner because there are so many choices in the Myrtle Beach area we just didn't think it would be worth the trip. But we happened to find ourselves up that way and decided to give the Brentwood a try. Sure glad we did! We'll definitely make the drive again. We tried the Paris (prix fix) menu and were really happy with everything we ordered.
50th Birthday Celebration
We had dinner for 9 at 8:00 on Friday November 6th, 2015. I was really looking forward to this dinner as I had seen a couple of good reviews for the food as well as the restaurant as a whole. I was not disappointed. I had one of the specials that evening and it was fantastic. A couple others in our party had a dish from the "Iron Chef" All were very pleased with their meal and everyone of us said we would be back. Highly recommend visiting this restaurant while you are vacationing.

Supper in SC with a Long Island Name
Charming restaurant with excellent food and wine. The ambiance was quiet, the waitress and servers efficient and friendly. Food selection with wide variety and special menu for vegetarians.

The she crab soup is the best I've had. Duck confit was delicious. Our Beef Wellington was cooked to perfection. Located in an old Victorian mansion the ambience is great. Put on your must go list.
We have been to Brentwood many times and loved it. We were seated in a back room and they seemed to have forgotten us. Service was no there but the food was terrific as always.
