    I really was looking forward to the experience, but it was just ok. For the price point, I didn’t feel like I got the experience. The food was not very flavorful, nor was our waiter very attentive. I ordered a drink, and our server went to submit that order. In his way back, I asked if I could substitute out an ingredient. This was before the bartender would have even been able to make the drink, and the waiter started telling me that he would have to void it out and how much everyone hates voids. Then after he listed to what I wanted he was like oh, that won’t need to be voided. I should never have heard about that, and he should have listened to me to see if and how he could help. Just an extremely unprofessional moment. Again at that price point, that was truly unacceptable in terms of customer service. Finally, I sat across from air vents, and I couldn’t help but notice how dirty they were. This is supposed to be an upscale restaurant, and dust could be blowing in my food. Please make sure that the entire establishment is clean. Attention to detail or lack thereof makes a difference. A mediocre experience could have been good, but sadly it just wasn’t. I originally was looking to bring a larger party with me. I’m actually glad I didn’t. I don’t think the standard would have been met for everyone.

    Service and food were excellent, beautiful old restored building but space felt a little formal and a little spare. Nicely appointed, however. Wine list very good might have had more red between $100-200….

    Excellent food, company and restaurant. We took our family member out and she had a wonderful time. She stated her steak was one of the best, she's ever eaten. I always marvel their she crab soup along with their crab cake.

    Everything was fabulous! The hot towels, birthday card and amuse were a great touch. We had the bone marrow and scallops feature for appetizers; wonderful. Duck entree and chicken with crab risotto entree; wonderful! Service was superb. Everything was great and we truly appreciate the hospitality that was shown tonight. Thank you!

    I was most impressed with the service my husband and I received. We had an 8:00pm reservation and the restaurant closed at 9:00pm. However, our server treated us as if her shift had just started. Good service is so hard to come by nowadays, but we received outstanding service. I wish I remember our server name, because she was top tier and we definitely tipped her accordingly. Our food was ok, not the best steak, I kept comparing it to the steak I had at Fleming’s in Stony Point because their steak was so good, I didn’t even need any sauce. I will say this, I would definitely become a returning customer based on the customer service alone. Thank you!!

    My wife and I enjoyed a an exceptional dinner at the classiest restaurant in the area. The service, food, ambiance, and professionalism were top notch. We had veal and steak and both were cooked to perfection with tasty sides. What a wonderful experience. Highly recommend for a special night or a special cocktail at the bar.

    We had such a wonderful experience. My 15 year old wanted a nice dinner with her friends and I’m so glad we chose Byrd and Baldwin. It made me realize I need to eat there more often. It had been years. I also brought her older sister and my best friend (one of the other girl’s mother). It was elegant but also relaxed. The staff especially our server (I’m so sorry I have forgotten his name) were beyond excellent. Friendly and down to earth but very professional and excellent at their job. Thank you for making it special for her.

    We have dined here previously; therefore had a specific expectation level in regards to service. Our initial server did not meet this expectation; however Lexi (i think that was her name) the manager- stepped in and provided us with a more suitable server- Frank. Experience and food was top notch! The best A5 grade steak in the Hampton Roads area. We will return SOON!

    This was a meal like no other! The crabcakes were 99.9% lump crab meat, perfectly seasoned! The lobster tail was sweet and tender! My husband enjoyed a medium cooked New York strip with the creamiest mashed potatoes and the desserts were to die for! If you’re looking for an upscale dining experience with exceptional food and service, this is the place!

    On our special day my husband and I reserve a special and classy restaurant. I was impressed by the reviews and everyone commenting about the restaurant. I made the reservation and added the note of special occasion (anniversary). We were greeted with the most classy employees and told happy anniversary. The hostess took us to our table. The table next to us had around 10 people. Then our romantic dinner experience was a shipyard business meeting. Then a couple were sit the other next table and the man was talking loud Like he was on the streets. For a place like this $$$$$ the meeting needed to be held on a private room and the loud men someone needed to tell him to lower his voice. Other than my complaint, food was good other then the roasted potatoes we’re salty. The service of the waiter was excellent.

    My recent visit to Byrd and Baldwin Bro's Steakhouse was an extraordinary experience, particularly remarkable for its culinary innovation. Upon entering, the ambiance immediately set a luxurious yet comfortable tone, with warm lighting and an attentive staff that provided personalized recommendations. The evening's highlight, surprisingly, came from what are traditionally considered side dishes, but here were transformed into the main attractions. The crab brie mac and cheese, with its rich, creamy texture and generous lumps of succulent crab, alongside the lobster mac and cheese, equally luxurious and perfectly seasoned, were nothing short of spectacular. Yet, it was the duck and pork chops that stole the show. The duck, with its perfectly crispy skin and tender, flavorful meat, and the pork chops, expertly grilled to juicy perfection, elevated the meal from excellent to extraordinary. Each bite of the mains, complemented by the gourmet twists on classic mac and cheese, underscored the chef's remarkable ability to blend traditional comfort food with fine dining finesse, making the experience at Byrd and Baldwin Bros Steakhouse genuinely memorable.
