We visited Bennett's based on the location and the reviews with our group of friends. We enjoyed the food and drink but I felt our server needed to work on his customer service skills...could have been an off day but "a" smile goes along way...

We've eaten at Bennett's Bistro before many times and have always been a bit disappointed with the food compared to its brother in University Village. This time we changed our food choices and were impressed. The corn soup with corn nuts was just delicious as was the roasted chicken with potato gratin. We look forward to returning.

Good place, with good food and bar. Seating available near open front on nice days and outside patio. A bit pricey, but caters to well- heeled Mercerites, who don't seem to mind. Friendly, professional service.

We needed to grab a quick lunch on the run last week. Melinda, my boss said to find a bistro in Downtown Mercer Island. Bennet's came up on my Smartphone--the one and only. The menu looked intriguing so we hunted it down. It was not a day for an elaborate or leisurely meal. Fortunately, Bennet's salad menu perfectly suited out... More

Enjoyed the happy hour at Bennett's during the week. Service was attentive. We enjoyed the kale salad, Mac & cheese, and pork burgers. Everything was tasty, with the exception of the salmon burgers. The portions of the burgers are small also.

This place has changed over the years from having cheese and wine bar items to a more straight forward restaurant. Emphasis on Washington wines.

Was excited to try brunch here after I read some good reviews. The scones they bring to your table were very good and tasty. That was the end of the good experience. The menu was boring and needing an update one the breakfast side. Scrambled eggs with cheese and a side of bacon is not a "scramble". The Bloody Mary... More

What's not to love about Bennett's. Come for the jalapeno margaritas. Stay for the outstanding service and make sure that you end with one of their outstanding desserts. Love the Happy Hour turkey burgers and the salmon sliders. Tobe be honest, I have enjoyed every menu item that I've ordered. Last visit, I had halibut and it was fantastic.

It is always fun to meet friends for lunch or dinner at Bennett's, inside or out (weather permitting). We just returned from a year of world travel and met friends here for a lovely dinner. I love their special tomato soup and mac and cheese. My wife likes their salads and a glass of wine.

Thoroughly enjoyed dining here.The staff was top notch and the food was fresh and delicious. Had ice cold beer and shared a wonderful desert and a vintage tawny port. Although we sat inside, they have a nice outdoor seating area.
