    Exceeded Expectations

    Amy, Jacque, and their team provided excellent service. Amy was always available when I needed anything, she was very patient, and met all my requests. We met once in person and other communication was via phone, text, and email. The food was amazing. The short ribs were so tender, and there are no words to describe the bartender! We had an evening wedding reception, and I'm so glad we trusted The Brentwood Restaurant and Wine Bistro on our special day.

    We recently got married at The Brentwood and couldn’t recommend it more! Absolutely beautiful venue inside and out. We had our wedding in the covered area of the pavilion (as weather was not favorable that morning) and the dinner and reception in the wine room.
    Chef Eric’s cuisine he prepared for us and our guests was superb! Amy did a great job with sending us recommendations for local vendors they work with and getting the details in order for our day. Jacque was absolutely spectacular! She was our event coordinator for the day/night of our wedding. She and her team worked incredibly hard to make sure our day and night was amazing and it was!! One of the best complements I can give Jaque and her crew is to mention, even weeks after the wedding, my family and friends are still complementing the service that they gave us. They went out of their way to meet your every need, made sure everyone was taken care of and were the absolute nicest people to work with. It really was amazing in every way. This venue will always hold a special place in our hearts and so will the wonderful people there! It far exceeded our expectations and we couldn’t recommend The Brentwood more!
