If you are in a rush and you haven't got any other options then this one is passable. I thought we'd try this place as we'd eaten at many of the others. My test of fish and chips is pretty basic - fish aren't made...in triangles. The fish and chips were just unremarkable, lukewarm and soggy. There are better options up and down the street.More

Walked and were served promptly. Great servings. Enjoyed the food. Will come back for the breakfast menu. The Ceaser salad was one of the best. People have forgotten to make this salad well

The St Patrick's Day band was great, but I only drank two beers and got kicked out. I ordered 2 OV. Maybe if I drank a third I could have stayed 🤣

First time visiting this restaurant for a pre-Christmas get together and as I usually always do beforehand, I had a look at the menu and reviews. I was reluctant to chose any of the items other customers had written about but settled reluctanly on the...fish and chips. Service was great but the meal was almost exactly as previously described and a bit of a disappointment considering the cost. Honestly, I think I would have been happier with the artichoke & spinach dip as a starter item and will probably sample that next time.More

Is was SO bad it is really hard to know where to start. We have gone to Stratford every year for 30 plus and always eaten at Bentley's. We will NEVER darken their door again. We shared the brushetta that came with 5 small peices...of a baguette for $12.00. The tomato base was totally disgusting and if you want feta cheese it was $3.50 for the equivalent of a tablespoon. It was the worst tasting, over priced appetizer we have ever shared. A clear signal to the owners of this establishment should be at 12.20pm(lunch time) your restaurant, on a Sunday afternoon, you had all of 10 people in it. You have done yourself in serving this overpriced terrible food. After 30 plus years we will never be back, but then, you will not be in business when we come back for a visit to Stratford.More

Prompt service. Friendly wait staff. I had the fish tacos which was one of their lunch specials on this day. I just enjoyed this meal so much I hope they have it again. The flavours blended so well together with the toppings , it was...just fantastic. Now I’m just waiting for the sticky toffee pudding to be added to their dessert menu.More

The chicken fettuccine tasted way better than in some specialty Italian restaurants I’ve been to. The powerhouse crunch was great. Just the right amount of dressing and super yummy variety of veggies. Butter chicken was delicious- not too salty as it often is…. Staff were...excellent. To “boot” reasonably priced.More

The searching for an appealing mid range eatery in downtown Stratford for lunch proved to be more of a challenge than during the summer. We saw empty patios and restaurants with a decided lack of appeal. Our local favorite had closed. With low data on...the phone preventing checking out reviews, we elect to try Bentleys despite an empty patio. Maybe the brain remembered seeing a large sign on Highway 8 promoting it or maybe the menu posted outside looked nice enough although hard on the wallet. Yes, I am getting to the important part, the food. I had a blue cheese burger; it was too dry and was a 3/5. I should have sent it back and would have if we had more time. The fries were OK. My wife had the grilled chicken breast burger and she said it was wonderful…a 5/5. You have to observe the menu closely as some of the sandwich/burger type meals included fries or salad while others did not. Overall, too many of the dishes were overpriced for what you get so the value was marginal. The rather dimly light restaurant was clean but dated except for the exterior signage (it worked!). Washrooms were large and sparkling clean. Service was very friendly and helpful. Would I go back? Maybe but I would try several other places first. If you haven’t been to Stratford, it is a great town to visit!More

We ate outside on the patio. The food was delicious, the staff extremely friendly. It was a great experience. Bentley's is on Ontario Street so it is a busy street. Cars really whip by but the patio was a great place to have our meal.

Love the vibes at Bentleys. Went there for a light lunch trying to lose weight. The menu has a vast selection of food it’s such a varied selection. I simply cannot get enough of the Greek pasta salad to which I ordered a grilled chicken...breast. The chicken was so moist, tender and the pasta salad is my favorite. It was very busy but I did not have to wait long for my meal. I’m not a tourist but a regular patron for over 28 years now. Alan the waiter is phenomenal. How he manages to balance taking meal orders, delivering them and be so attentive to the diners leaves me awestruck. Love Stratford and with gratitude enjoy all my visits there with Bentleys Greek pasta salad.More

Went here after a show and we were not impressed. We ordered drinks and received them right away. After ordering it seemed to take a while and when the food came out my wife's reuben sandwich and fries were cold. We let the server know...and she took the meal back to the kitchen to get it replaced and a "new" sandwich came out very quickly. On this one the cheese wasn't even melted and only fries on top were warm. My wife sent it back and the server took it off the bill. I ordered garlic bread with cheese and for and extra $4 there was barely any cheese on it. My butter chicken was hot but the sauce was very sparse, the dish was very dry and the chicken didn't look like it was simmered in the sauce like the menu says. I am trying to figure out how basil spiced yogurt wasn't spicy and was yellow. Also for some reason the red pepper slices were raw (I guess they were a garnish?). Server was very attentive and tried to defend the kitchen but the food just wasn't what we expected.More

I have been coming to Bentley's for several years. They have a very good menu with lots of choice. I had pasta, which was bland. Next time, I will choose something else. My server Brooke was excellent. She was fast and efficient.

We had dinner here before a play and it was very nice. Great selection on the menu. Wait staff knew what they were doing. Ordering and delivery of food was fast. Exactly what was expected. Price was fair. Location was close to theaters (good walking...path to the main Festival location but a good walk) This is a busy place for a reason.More

Bentleys is a safe choice as it has been over the years. Unfortunately, due to the issue of recruiting staff, a common problem, the staff at least on this midweek lunch was a bit slow and a little unattentive. Food is good as always. One...issue confronting many patrons is Stratford's parking system as many people found it combursome and frustrating when attempting to park in the lot behind Bentley's. Trying to put in your car license and in attempting to pay can be troublesome. This system needs to be updatedMore
