Tyler was a great waiter. The valet was wonderful. The manager came to our table a couple of times and engaged us. Well done! We were celebrating our 23rd wedding anniversary and I am so glad we chose Byrd and Baldwin Bros. Steakhouse.

A last minute decision - mid week and even with COVID limitations proved to be "what the doctor ordered. Relaxing, good food and an excellent wine List - even by the glass.
Service as attentive and helpful when ordering. I have been many times before nd will again - soon..

It was amazing. Definitely on my top ten places I’ve eaten. The bone marrow was outstanding as was the steak, crab cake, lobster Mac & cheese and spinach. We will be back with our next visit! The noise was a little loud but we were sitting next to the kitchen and the guys were just getting going. They were having fun and our reservation was early so I know they were just getting ready for a busy night.

The experience was great, everyone is super friendly and helpful. Food was great, one draw back was steak was a little under done for us. (Rare rather than medium rare)

It was a lovely evening to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary with wonderful food & pleasant staff. Enjoyed ahi tuna, colossal shrimp cocktail, the wagyu steak, with the crab macaroni, garlic mash, and paired with Banshee Sauvignon . The steak was cooked to perfection. It was more than enough for my spouse & I. The sinful chocolate cake with the Port wine absolutely magnifique! The cake was so delicious we had to take one home! Compliments to the chef & Steven! Thank you for a memorable evening! Look forward to visiting again.

Recently visited for the visit time to celebrate landing a job after a long two month search! I’m so happy we choose a local famous spot in downtown Norfolk! Well worth the visit! I got there wanting steak but when the waiter told me about a special they were having (Mahi) my eyes lit up like a Christmas tree. Mahi is my favorite and the way they delivered it was phenomenal! The sangria was perfection! The waitstaff were attentive wonderful and friendly!

Can’t wait to go back and will definetly add it to my top faves !

Byrd and Baldwin is as always the best place to get a fantastic steak, the most incredible service and wonderful atmosphere. It is pretty much a guarantee you are going to get what you pay for at this restaurant.

The service is exceptional. From the host/hostess to each of the food runners, the wait staff. They absolutely make having dinner there a terrific experience.

The food....OMG. It is just amazing. We both had a NY strip that was cooked to perfection, mine medium rare, his medium. The garlic mashed potatoes and the cauliflower au gratin were so good.

Not only did my boyfriend get a signed card from everyone on the staff for his birthday but they brought us a complimentary sorbet sampler for dessert. Yum

I will always recommend Byrd and Baldwin, but the check is not for the faint of heart. Be prepared to pay for this amazing food and service.

Our anniversary dinner, we got a card signed by the staff, amazing knowledgeable and friendly service. The wine was amazing! They even gave me the crystal cork from the bottle. We have oysters and Rockefeller. My husband had the rack of lamb, no words to describe ... amazing doesn’t do it justice. I had the filet Oscar and again, melt in your mouth goodness. Every bite was a small piece of heaven. We also tried a few of their specialty cocktails and the creme brûlée - we received a complimentary champagne toast and a tour of the wine cellar. This will absolutely be one of our go to places for special occasion dinners.

Thoroughly agreed with our colleagues recommendation. Excellent, pleasant and knowledgeable staff attended just enough to be pleasant but unobtrusive. Knowledge and recommendation were spot on. From crab cakes and oysters to start to ribeyes done perfectly to moth watering desserts the meal met all expectations.

I was treated here for my birthday and it was an ethereal experience. The food was singularly delicious, all of the flavors were present, not muddled. The drinks...(may I strongly recommend the Godfather) were like nectars of the Gods. The staff...oh my the staff are so friendly and you can tell they really like working with people, talking to them, it was so comfortable and just a wonderful experience. I absolutely cannot wait to go back.
