This was our second trip to Byrd and Baldwin Brothers. The first trip was us and another couple and it was great. This trip was just us and it was fantastic. We were seated in the back dining area which only has about 5 tables so it's pretty private. The food has been outstanding both times and the service has been what you would expect from an upscale steakhouse. Very clean, very nice and our waiter, Ladi was outstanding. This is a place to go for a dining experience, not just for dinner. We'll definitely be back again!

Always enjoy dining here, the food is consistently delicious and cooked to perfection, the staff is kind and attentive, they truly do wait on you unlike some places where it’s the other way around, but I digress... if you haven’t been, what are you waiting for?

Great place for intimate dinner or business dinner. Several smaller areas- ask for back room past the kitchen

This place was amazing. Best meal I have ever had- no exaggeration. I had the Black Diamond ribeye, a gorgeous steak that was cooked and seasoned perfectly. Our server, Clayton, was wonderful. He made some excellent recommendations, and we never had to ask for anything. It's only a shame that we were visiting from out of town. If we make our way back to the area, we would absolutely return.

For our anniversary, neither of us got an appetizer which was a good move. Husband didn’t think he’d finish the dry aged 22oz porterhouse but after the first bite he said he wouldn’t share and nearly finished it all. We even brought home the bone to finish off the little bit left. I got the 6oz house mignon. I had a clean plate.
Personal preference: I always this seafood and Mac and cheese may be good but to this day I have yet to have one that really makes me believe it is a good combo. I had a few bites of the lobster Mac and cheese side but it was just ok.
Desert was the key lime pie which also ended as a clean plate. Planning to make this an annual visit!

Everything was outstanding except for the large party of 5 or 6 behind us with this one gentleman who had to talk very loud for an hour straight about how awesome of a contractor he is. He also had to tell a story about each item that came to the table with “you think this is good you should of had it in, Spain, Italy, France...etc” each bite came with another story. He might of new the owner cause he was loud and obnoxious and it was business as usual. From entering to our check everything was top notch. Would of been even better without the great contractor.

The service was terrible! Our waiter was not attentive at all, and quite rude actually. The food was excellent, but for the money I paid for dinner I expected the service to be as well. My check was $324 before tip.

This is a very old-school steakhouse. The ambience is 20th century luxury. The steak was very good, the server was also good, but compared to other fine eateries this seems rather outdated. The pricing is exclusive, and that’s understandable from a marketing perspective, but I certainly wouldn’t say the food merits the price. This restaurant is certainly not a value proposition, but it is a pleasant experience and a satisfying meal, if not exceptional.

We had the pleasure of celebrating my husband’s birthday here. From the valet staff to host to wait and buss staff, everyone was professional and the service was superior throughout! The cocktails were innovative while expertly crafted. Finally, the food: it was impeccable. Highly recommend the Caesar salad, ribeye and salmon!

Went to Byrd and Baldwin Bros with my wife to celebrate our first year wedding anniversary together. We had she crab soup, salad, filet mignon and for dessert we had chocolate mousse. The service we received by Clayton was excellent, above par. The food was fantastic and amazing. I highly recommend Byrd and Baldwin Bros to anyone looking to celebrate a special occasion.
