    The restaurant is in the happening Padre Hotel in downtown Bakersfield. Heather, our personable wait person expertly led us through the well thought out menu. The soup of the day was a wonderful tomato red pepper soup which had good dollop of fresh corn relish and a nice kick. The salad your way option was unique and if I say so myself we made good choices. I had a perfectly cooked tenderloin with mashed potatoes and wild mushrooms with horseradish sauce. My husband enjoyed his heritage pork chop with twice backed potatoe but so so Brussel sprouts. Merryville Cabernet was a good choice. The short dessert menu did not inspire. Should we ever return to Bakersfield, we will return!

    This was our 2yr Anniversary dinner. Kudos to the Director of Food and Beverage Matthew G Howell for allowing me to deliver a bouquet of roses in advance and have them waiting at our table when we were seated. That smile was priceless. We enjoyed a 5 course meal prepared by Chef Collin some of which was his own creation and part of the full menu. The chef came to visit us at our table which was a treat. Our server was very knowledgeable and explained every course as it was brought out. She earned her tip! Everything was Top Notch. I would recommend to any and everyone.

    If you're looking for a top-notch restaurant to celebrate a special occasion, The Belvedere Room at the Padre is one of Bakersfield's best choices. I've dined here 3 times, and have always been very impressed. The food is delicious and the service is excellent, perhaps even too attentive, if that's possible. Be warned, this restaurant is very expensive - over $150 for 2 people to enjoy an appetizer, soup, entree, dessert, and wine - but for a memorable evening (birthday, proposal, anniversary) it's worth it!

    I come here on average once a month, with a new guest every time. Upon attending for the 3rd time in such a short term, I was actually recognized by the restaurant as a VIP. The restaurant staff does keep an eye out on the restaurant and who comes back. I will always be going back to the belvedere room. It's one of those restaurants that I want to show everyone and everyone is interested in seeing it. I get invitations here weekly.

    My wife and I have been here three times. Every time has been perfect execution. It's the only higher end resturant in town that is worth the extra money. Our only negative was that we were seated next to a large window which threw off the lighting.

    In 2013, we celebrated our 40th Anniversary with friends at the Belvedere Room. To say we were "under-whelmed" would be generous. The service was horrible, we waited 1.5 hours for our food, which was lackluster at best and the best explanation the restaurant manager could give was "I'm sorry, we're just slammed!" Really? So, $563.74 (before tip) later, we left with a bad taste in our mouths...literally. Fast forward to anniversary 41...we decide to give the Belvedere Room a chance at reedemption....and they came through with flying colors! The wait staff was heroic, the food was absolutely excellent, and when the bill came, we were very happy diners! It's expensive, but it is well worth the price for a fine dining experience!

    I took my brother and my mother here for my brothers birthday. It was by far the best restaurant experience I have had. The room is very elegant and sophisticated, very calming classical music plays at the perfect noise level for conversation. I was impressed from the start. We didn't like the table we were placed at, but they had no problem moving us. Our servers name was Rebecca and she was very attentive, yet she didn't hover. She gave us our time to ourselves, but seemed to all ready be at the table when we needed something. Everyone was helpful. Waters were refilled just in time. My brother & I had the tenderloin. It was delicious. Easy to chew, and perfectly seasoned. Had to have them thank the Chef. My mother had the lobster tail.

    The Belvedere Room was once a great restaurant, but my experience on Friday 8/15/2014 was less than expected. The service is still top notch, but the food quality and presentation were not up to its past standards. Wife's lobster hadn't been "pre-pulled" from shells, making it difficult to enjoy. My tenderloin, ordered medium rare was past medium well. The twice baked potato was unappetizing and (unknown to me at the time) larded with bacon fat. "Seasonal vegetables" were over grilled small cubes of zucchini and other squashes. Rude guest actually insulted my adult son about his thin appearance on the way out. Miss the old Belvedere Room.

    The food was mediocre. I got the lobster tail and it was cooked just alright. The mashed potatoes were to die for. My boyfriend got the rack of ribs and it didnt come in a rack. The ribs came in the size of a small box. It tasted like beef stew meat, not the typical taste of a rack of ribs. The only thing good about the meal was the mashed potatoes.

    This was a great experience, if you're wanting to go somewhere special or nice it's the perfect place. It's got a grand entrance, high ceilings, long dramatic curtains, really pretty décor and lighting. The wait staff was very accommodating and friendly. The menu is pretty upscale, scallops, risotto, duck, that type of thing. I had the ravioli with black truffle butter appetizer, it was good, I could have had more truffle flavor but it was really good. The scallops were great, and the complimentary bread and butter was pretty great also actually. The prices weren't too bad for a nice dining experience, about $25-30 a plate if you'd like to keep it simple, and then $10-15 per appetizer. Overall I definitely recommend checking it out.

    It was our first time dinner. The food was outstanding. (lobster) As was the short ribs. However my husband mentioned there was not enough short ribs on the plate. (big eater). The waiter was good. But could put a little more of HIS personality in the experience. He did know the menu and how food was prepared. Enjoyable evening

    We celebrated our 13th Anniversary here. I got the Tomahawk cooked the Padre way and my wife the shrimp pasta. We were both very happy. The service was great. They gave us a very tasty complimentary dessert specially made by the chef, a lemon custard with pistachios, blond brownie and chopped strawberry. Perfect for the summer. It was very quiet and fancy... not a place for kids. I would come again for a special occasion.

    My wife and I arrived a few minutes before 6 p.m. and we were immediately led to a table for 7 in this cavernous restaurant. The hostess then disappeared for the next two minutes and after she finally returned I asked for a smaller table. She apologized for seating us at the wrong table and moved us to a corner table for 2. I had the duck which was presented with three different jams. Not many restaurants serve duck so if you're in the mood for duck then this is the place. Otherwise I'd recommend something else. My wife had the short ribs which had a smokey flavor. Better than the duck but I've had better short ribs elsewhere. The server was very attentive though we were the only patrons for most of our meal and the restaurant was not busy.

    The food at the Padre in the Belvedere room was just "ok". We dined at the Padre on a Sunday evening. I don't know if the regular kitchen staff was off duty because the food was not at the same standards as before when we have dined on a Friday or Saturday. The service was great and the ambience very nice. l try them again, just not on a Sunday.

    The greatest compliment I can give a place in Bakersfield is that it reminded me of another place in NYC or San Francisco. The Belvedere Room staff certainly give diners their greatest effort and the food was much better than it really had a right to be. For a town that lacks much restaurant culture this place nails it down fairly well. The overall experience easily puts it in the same league as the fine dining experiences in the above mentioned cities, just, perhaps, not in very high standing within that league. Beware the Valet parking, not a good experience was had at that juncture, and it is unfortunate that the Belvedere room must suffer from the rest of The Padre.

    The Padre Hotel is a magnificent building on 18th Street in Bakersfield. You walk in to the lobby and immediately see 2 vibrant bars, one of which turns into the hottest club around. Walk a little further and you enter the Belvedere, behind plush curtains. It is a grand room with lovely decorations that would remind one of the elegance of the 40's and perhaps before. The music completes the ambiance. The food was very good starting with a very nicely prepared pork belly appetizer. I went with the salmon entree but I think I got a bad piece which they immediately changed out for a steak. Seasoned and cooked perfectly. The wild mushrooms were superb. Excellent server with a charming and professional demeanor!

    This was my second trip to the Belvedere Room. I had a similar experience both times. The ambiance is nice as you enter. However, the room is very noisy making it difficult to carry on a conversation with friends. If I am dining in a nice restaurant, I want to feel relaxed and be able to converse easily. The staff did a nice job and the food was acceptable but it did not wow me or my guests. Eating at the Belvedere is an expensive evening and I have eaten dishes with more complex tastes at lower price venues - even in Bakersfield.

    Delicious!! Bravo! Look, if I were rating a restaurant in, say, LA, SF or NY, the food would get 4 stars (still a notable rating), but this is clearly the best dining experience one can find in Bakersfield. We had a group of 9, and all were pleased. I must say that the seafood (the trout special and the salmon) was delectable AND fresh (I was delightfully surprised by this, as having grown up in Bakersfield, fish this fresh and well prepared is a rarity). Finally, the servers were great, and the host, Paul, was helpful from the booking to addressing inquiries re wine, champagne etc. This is where I will take my parents to dine whenever I return to visit. (One constructive comment: the bread could be improved, but it wasn't bad.)

    My two daughters (7 and 11) and I met my mom and her husband for dinner on the Saturday night before Easter. We were fortunate enough to have Heather as our server. She was very attentive, cheerful, knowledgeable about the menu, and delightful with my children. The food was delicious! My steak was cooked to perfection and the mashed potatoes were Heavenly. Heather was always there when we needed her, but didn't hover. There were other wait staff that assisted her and they were all awesome. We dined early, so we pretty much had the place to ourselves. I would definitely go there again.

    Second visit in a row where the food underwhelmed. Was a great restaurant the first couple years it was open but appears to be steadily declining since. Now the norm is for them to be out of items, prepare orders in incorrectly and basically ruin an otherwise great night. My steak was over cooked while my pregnant wife's steak came out rare. Sides are no longer to die for and are average at best. We would have killed for average on our last visit. Definitely not worth the price any longer and more importantly, not worth using a babysitter for.

    The Padre Hotel is a must visit for any traveler to Bakersfield. Great food, ambiance and service will be your reward. We had dinner in the elegant Belvedere Room. The lamb and grilled shrimp dishes were excellent. The cheese appetizer was wonderful. The apple dessert was an fine finish. We celebrated our 25th anniversary while another table celebrated their 35th and a third table was a marriage proposal (She said, "Yes!"). Obviously, Bakersfield and the Padre Hotel are good for romance!

    Hubby, myself, and another couple had dinner at the Padre before a concert at the FOX theater. The Belvedere room is beautiful. We started with shots and drinks from the bar ordered through our young, quick, awesome waiter. He was awesome. Had variety of steaks, Mary's organic chicken, chefs veggies and twice baked potatoes are memorable and outstanding! Followed up with cheesecake which was again memorable and outstanding! Then we went to the bar and had more drinks, and our waiting got out bar table for us. Great place, great staff, and spacious, clean bathrooms. 5 stars from us!

    What a gem. Superbe meal in a spectacular room, from a well crafted menu. Service was excellent - just the right level but never obtrusive. The Wagyu Beef Gnocchi was incredible - dense and perfect flavors, everything cooked to perfection. I'm sure the beef ragu took 12 hours to reduce. The pork belly was similarly inventive but simple and incredible including the celery root reduction with peas - magical. Salads, once again perfect ingredients with exceptional seasonings and dressings. Wine list is carefully chosen and excellent, and reasonably priced for the offerings. The only let down was the espresso machine had been turned off by the time we finished our dinner at 9:30PM. Please fix this!
