We like going to Bennetts because its really the only finer dining places on Mercer Island. But it feels like it takes advantage of that without earning its spot. It is very expensive while the food is average and the ambience is getting stale. We...More

Eat here regularly. Love their Beet Salad, and signature Beechers Cheese dishes. Service usually pretty good, although constant turnover in managers..

We have been patronizing Bennett's for over 5 years, going out to eat there at least once a month. Very good seafood, good wine list and friendly service. Recommend it. They do start serving later in the morning, though.

Welcome At Bennett's we are committed to serving authentic, original food. You won't find artificial preservatives, colors or sweeteners. No flavor enhancers, hydrogenated oils or processed foods. What you will find, are the freshest, most authentic ingredients we can offer. Most of our ingredients are deeply rooted in the Cascadia region - an area extending from northern California to southern Alaska, and the coast to the continental divide, taking in Washington, most of Oregon and Idaho and part of Montana. We buy from producers who share our commitment to whole foods and handmade fare. People dedicated to the simple pleasures of creating delicious food and drink the way it was intended to be made; fresh from the earth, the sea and the vine.
