    We came to celebrate Father’s Day. My date ordered a Porterhouse Steak, Lobster, and a baked potato. After taking our order the waiter came back and informed us that they had sold out of the Porterhouse steak..so we chose a different steak. About 10 mins later the waiter returned and said they had sold out of the baked potato and asked us to choose another side. Fast forward to us receiving our food…the lobster didn’t come out until 15-20 minutes later. The waiter said it wasn’t cooked properly the first time. We did not make a fuss but overall we were not pleased with our experience. I understand things happen but this was excessive. With the price point of this restaurant, we expected better service.

    Me and my husband attended for our anniversary. It was a beautiful environment, quiet, inmate, service was excellent, and just a great time overall. This is a fine diner so it is pricey but the food and service match the experience. This is definitely a spot to go to if you want to "treat yourself."

    The service and food was delicious, I ordered the Aged Ribeye Steak rare and it was a little over cooked. I talked with the waiter and without hesitation he fixed my order. When my steak was brought out to me it was cooked properly and it was delicious. For desert my husband had the cheesecake, I had the cream brûlée and an expresso martini. All were beyond what I had expected, definitely save room for desert.

Ambiance was great with classy classic decor. Wait staff was inpeccable. We'll definitely return the next time we're in town

    We celebrated my husband's 67th birthday at Byrd and Baldwin. It was our first time eating there, and I found it by searching on line. The reviews were very favorable and it was within walking distance to the Wells Theatre where we had tickets for a 7:30 performance. Our server was very gracious; not overbearing, but detailed in describing the menu options. He was prompt in exchanging plates and flatware for the next course. His recommendations were right on par with what we expected. He showed me where the Ladies' Room was. We has such large portions that we had one boxed to take home that we couldn't eat. Dessart was delicious. We split a Key Lime Pie. Upon leaving we were asked if we had valet parking, but we were walking to the Wells. In all, it was superb!

    Super evening celebrating anniversary. Super cocktails. Really enjoyed the hors d'oeuvres. Crab soup is one of the best in area. Of course the main course was cooked to perfection. We enjoyed both rack of lamb and fillet mignon. Didn't save room for dessert but took a slice of key lime pie home. Finally, the wine list is extensive. Our waiter was extremely attentive but allowed us to enjoy a quiet meal. In total, a special evening at a super venue.
