Byrd and Baldwin Bros. Steakhouse
Exceptional -Beautiful-Reasonable Steakhouse in the heart of Norfolk. I recommend it to everyone.
Alex is literally the ONLY reason PERIOD! Superb service!
Probably the best dining experience my wife & I have enjoyed in years. The waiter was on point and very attentive. Checking on us approximately every 10min. Then at the end of our meal we were invited to tour their huge wine cellar which was a really nice touch to end dinner. Next time I visit Norfolk. I’ll definitely dine here.
It said strict business casual dress code but people were in shorts. So?
We were referred to Byrd and Baldwin Brothers Steakhouse after asking a (local) friend "what is the best steakhouse in Norfolk"? I checked the reviews prior to making a reservation. The ratings suggested exactly what our friend had told us. We went to dinner and it would not be possible to even suggest anything that would have made our experience better. The appetizers, steaks, shrimp, cocktails, and wine list were spot on. The server was truly exceptional. They ROCK IT !!
Always our choice for special occasions. Never disappointed.
Great steak house. Upscale atmosphere and outstanding service.
Service was excellent. Food was universally good.
This place was AMAZING everything was great will definitely be going back 👍🏽🤗🤗
Took excellent care of us and the food was terrific. Even managed the birthday wishes discretely, which was perfect.
Our first time eating at your establishment and it was a great experience. We throughly enjoyed ourselves and looking forward to return. We there to celebrate our 14th year wedding anniversary. We were beyond impressed. Thank you for the great service, staff and chief.
Amazing appetizers, entrees were superb and the wine was excellent. Service was spot on without being overbearing. I highly recommend.
Perfect for celebrating a special occasion. Service was impeccable. Food outstanding. Had steak and spouse had the Chilean sea bass — one of the specials for the evening.
I’ll be coming back only if Alex is my server, the food and service was well worth it.
Excellent as usual.
The decor is extremely outdated. It's like stepping into a time machine. Offering crab risotto with a chicken dish puzzled my significant other. My ribeye was good, though I didn't understand the thyme and various small veggies on the plate. Too much fry fru. The server dropped the mini onion on the floor and didn't notice. So I had to pick it up.
Overall, it was a decent dinner. But definitely didn't feel worthy of the "as a reminder we do have a dress code" voicemail I received prior.
Pre-show dinner at the Wells. Great service and amazing food
Opera night dinner.
As new residents of Norfolk, we decided to try Byrd & Baldwin for a pre-theater dinner. Everything was perfect! We dined on Caesar salad, rib-eye, duck two ways and finished with a cheesecake we shared 3 ways. Coming from the NYC area, this is definitely one of the best restaurants in our new city. But be forewarned, the prices are also like NYC. But the value of excellent service, beautiful ambiance and wonderful makes it worth it. We will return soon.
Our favorite Anniversary spot! The food is always great, awesome service, staff is very attentive, helpful, and knowledgeable!
Restaurant was very nice and quiet. Food was excellent. Our waiter (I wish I could remember his name) was courteous and attentive. Enjoyed everything.
Awesome food great service Alex are waiter was on point all night long
Exceptional across the board. We will go back and recommend to family and friends.
Excellent service and food! We had a wonderful time.
This was my husband and I first dining experience at this restaurant. From the time we entered the restaurant until we left, the staff, food and service was phenomenal. We definitely will return and reccomend to all our friends and family.
Food was phenomenal. Emanuel was incredible. So attentive and friendly. Everything about the experience was amazing and made our anniversary special. Will definitely come back next year.
Great food. Great atmosphere. However, when it came to our server, we felt a bit rushed. He came off a bit snobbish and condescending throughout the entire visit. Everyone else was very courteous and polite. He even took the check before we could finish our drinks. As someone with prior serving experience, that’s a big no no! He probably thought we weren’t going to tip him.
This was a great place for a special occasion celebration. We celebrated my husbands birthday and were not disappointed. It is pricey ( 4 adult drinks, filet mig, she crab soup, lump crab cake app, and Cesar salad came to 150 range), but everything thing was DELICIOUS and we were given some olive tapenade courtesy from the chef.
My favorite place when in Norfolk. Dry aged rib eye was the best I have had. Not cheap but worth the money. We have sat both upstairs in the more formal area and then this time in the lower level, which is a little less formal. Great for visiting with friends.
waiter and staff were the best!! food and presentation excellent. but was expecting different ambiance considering the historic building shown on website
Excellent is the best way to describe Byrd and Baldwin Brother’s Steakhouse. Overall experience was wonderful. All menu items of choice were very good; one that stood out the most was the she crab soup. I’ve tasted many she crab soups; none of them compare. I highly recommend this place. If you are looking for great service, great food, great atmosphere and promptness, you can’t go wrong.
It’s always a great spot to celebrate a special occasion. Food is good but you are really paying for the ambiance and service.
The dinner experience was outstanding. The food was great and the ambiance was excellent. The service was superior. Alex K did an excellent job of taking care of us during our dinner
Very nice,classy joint,great bar,nice ambiance,will definitely go back
Very happy we went, great restaurant, great service. For those wondering about dress code, I wouldn’t suit up, most people wear business casual saw a couple of people with untucked collared shirts.
Delicious and fantastic as always.
The food was absolutely outstanding. The service was great and the food was mouthwatering. I would definitely come back every day if I could ha ha. Great energy and positive vibes.
The food here was amazing. I would definitely say they have THE BEST STEAK in town. My husband and I had their rib eye and it was cooked to perfection. They also have an excellent selection of wine and I believe you can tour their wine cellar. It's a perfect date venue, quiet, unplugged and very sophisticated. Would love to go there again when my husband gets back from deployment.
The service was amazing from the valet parking to the waiters. Attentive timely not pushy at all and very helpful. The food was amazingggg the fish of the day was to die for. If your looking for a great experience first date special occasion whatever this is the place
