    The key to customer service is to develop a tracking system that captures each customer’s likes and dislikes, as well as what each customer personally values and is hoping for when doing business with you. This restaurant gets it. their “Keep-Your-Systems-Simple” (KYSS) approach is exceptional In my opinion customer satisfaction is based on four predictable factors. Customers are satisfied whenever they consistently receive: 1. A perfect product 2. Delivered by a caring, friendly person 3. In a timely fashion … with (because any of those three elements may misfire) 4. The support of an effective problem resolution process”

    It will probably our first and last at byrd&baldwin or maybe if someone will invite me there and that’s their choice of place.. but for me its not gonna be my choice per se From the appetizers She crab soup -very smooth and got good lumps of crab meat but VERY SALTY! We ordered 2 we didn’t even finished it I just eat the crab meat and leave the soup which very sad to me because she crab is my favorite. Then the bone marrow omg the plate is really good to look at but when you started eating you will cringed by the amount of salt they’ve put on it and on it probably if the toast bread that comes with it is not also salty it may be a good combination but those 2 at “SALTY” as well., shrimps are ok 3pcs for $19 then our steaks are served so we are expecting for a better flavor this time but unfortunately Its lacking of the flavors that we wanted for a steak for the price that they are selling it for. You can have a better steak somewhere else cheaper than what they offer.. we didn’t even finished it because i am really overwhelmed of the amount of salt I’ve ingested that night..and the sides 3 out of 6 that we’ve ordered are also salty! the amount of salt they’ve put on the food ruined everything. We should have enjoyed that night because it was my cousins bday and I am the one who recommended that place but everybody is complaining of “very salty, oh it’s also salty” our bill is almost $400 for 3 people and we should have enjoyed it but unfortunately it’s a thumbs down for us. For the price point we are expecting more flavors with the steak but it was ruined by the amount of salt they’ve used. I think the chef is not having a good day yesterday:(

    First class! We were greeted warmly by everyone on the staff we met, our server, Aaron, was very good, pleasant, attentive, and extremely helpful. Our dinners were perfectly prepared, we both started with the Iceberg Wedge Salad (crisp and very fresh, we especially liked being able to add our own dressing), my wife had the 6 oz Filet Mignon, beautifully prepared and very flavorful, and I had the 12 oz Ribeye grilled to perfection we shared the Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Creamed Spinach, both were very good too! For dessert, we had Creme Brulee, very good as well! I should have added that our cocktails before dinner were also very good, my wife had the Sol (a tequila drink) and I had the Blackforest (I think that's the name?) bourbon cocktail, very similar to an Old Fashion, and very good too! We both were thrilled with our dining experience, and strongly recommend this truly superior restaurant!

    Temperature on the steaks (fillet and rib eye) were both very underdone. Rib eye requested medium, came out lower medium rare and very tough. Fillet requested medium rare and it came out blue and cold in the middle. Too nice of a place to send back but too expensive to ever try again. Ambiance was very nice. Service was slow but consistently slow. The staff were all hustling, I think you should just expect a three hour event.

    Sorry to say but I was disappointed with regard to the quality of food. It has been a few years since I have visited this restaurant and I can say that the food was outstanding. I do not know what has happened to the quality but the kitchen has to be addressed. The environment is still quite pleasant however.

    The service was quite nice and the waiter seemed very knowledgeable about what is there. I had the aged tomahawk ribeye which was the best steak I’ve had in my life. It was our anniversary and they had a nice card waiting on our table that the whole staff had signed. Would definitely recommend to everybody.

    From the minute the valets opened the doors of our car to placing the chair for my wife, to the meal and drink recommendations, to pulling our car back up for us without us needing to ask, we were treated like royalty. The food was perfect and delicious, especially the bone in pork chop and lobster mac, and the Godfather drink was amazing and the creme brulee was out of this world. My wife absolutely loved her birthday experience. Noah was the perfect attendant. I couldn't have asked for better.

    What a hidden gem. Located in a classic downtown building this was a memorable meal. We all had the beet salad and everyone finished every bite. While my two friends had streaks, which they throughly enjoyed, I went for the fish of the day, swordfish. I’m glad I did as it was prepared to perfection. I will be back

    It’s definitely an experience. The service and the ambiance were wonderful but the food left a little to be desired, especially considering the price. My steak was delicious though it was a tad undercooked. My wife and my friends wife both got the filet mignon and they were both severely undercooked. My buddy got the Black Diamond aged Ribeye and he enjoyed it but felt it a bit underwhelming with a price tag of a hundred dollars. We all got the oysters Rockefeller as an appetizer and honestly they were the worst part of the whole meal. The reg Mac and cheese was super overdone, very dry and not a lot of flavor while the lobster Mac and cheese was delicious as was my wedge salad. Even though a few things fell short on our visit I would recommend giving them a try to see for yourself and I would eat there again.

    The restaurant is beautiful service was excellent. My only gripe is that I ordered a 12 oz Ribeye for $59 and it was very average. I asked for medium and it was medium rare. The flavor was so plain. I’ve had better at a much lower price point. The garlic mashed potatoes was delish. My wife rack of lamb was really good and her augratin cauliflower was very good. Had a shrimp appetizer and it was the largest shrimp I have ever had. The steak however was a serious let down.

    Years ago I had one of the best birthday celebration dinners of my life. Our steward, Emanuel, was the epitome of service. My wife and I have dined here a few times since. Last night we celebrated my wife’s birthday. All these years later Emanuel was our steward once again. As before, he made our experience wonderful with his expertise. We will certainly be back and hope to have him as a steward once again. I say Steward because “server” would be downgrading Emanuel’s talent.

    Did not disappoint. Prices for steaks have gone up a bit due to inflation but well worth it for USDA prime cooked to perfection. We'd asked if the chef could prepare a favorite item long since removed from the regular menu (lobster mashed potatoes) and they were able to accommodate our request w/ only a small upcharge (I would have understood if they could not as a former Steakhouse employee back in the day, the regular garlic mashed are awesome on their own). Service was outstanding. Will definitely go back once my cholesterol returns to a reasonable level, I might even take out a loan and try the wagu beef next time.
