Steakhouse
A Traditional Steak and Chophouse restaurant had long been absent in Norfolk. With its opening in 2006, the Byrd & Baldwin Bros Steakhouse filled that void. Housed in the Circa 1906 building of the same name, the Byrd & Baldwin Bros Steakhouse was conceived and executed with a no-compromise philosophy, rewarding guests with a memorable dining experience.

Excellent place. Steaks were amazing. The manager took us on a tour of the wine cellar, it was a really nice addition to a wonderful birthday dinner.

Probably the best dining experience my wife & I have enjoyed in years. The waiter was on point and very attentive. Checking on us approximately every 10min. Then at the end of our meal we were invited to tour their huge wine cellar which was a really nice touch to end dinner. Next time I visit Norfolk. I’ll definitely dine here.

It said strict business casual dress code but people were in shorts. So?

We were referred to Byrd and Baldwin Brothers Steakhouse after asking a (local) friend "what is the best steakhouse in Norfolk"? I checked the reviews prior to making a reservation. The ratings suggested exactly what our friend had told us. We went to dinner and it would not be possible to even suggest anything that would have made our experience better. The appetizers, steaks, shrimp, cocktails, and wine list were spot on. The server was truly exceptional. They ROCK IT !!

The decor is extremely outdated. It's like stepping into a time machine. Offering crab risotto with a chicken dish puzzled my significant other. My ribeye was good, though I didn't understand the thyme and various small veggies on the plate. Too much fry fru. The server dropped the mini onion on the floor and didn't notice. So I had to pick it up.

Overall, it was a decent dinner. But definitely didn't feel worthy of the "as a reminder we do have a dress code" voicemail I received prior.

As new residents of Norfolk, we decided to try Byrd & Baldwin for a pre-theater dinner. Everything was perfect! We dined on Caesar salad, rib-eye, duck two ways and finished with a cheesecake we shared 3 ways. Coming from the NYC area, this is definitely one of the best restaurants in our new city. But be forewarned, the prices are also like NYC. But the value of excellent service, beautiful ambiance and wonderful makes it worth it. We will return soon.

Great food. Great atmosphere. However, when it came to our server, we felt a bit rushed. He came off a bit snobbish and condescending throughout the entire visit. Everyone else was very courteous and polite. He even took the check before we could finish our drinks. As someone with prior serving experience, that’s a big no no! He probably thought we weren’t going to tip him.

This was a great place for a special occasion celebration. We celebrated my husbands birthday and were not disappointed. It is pricey ( 4 adult drinks, filet mig, she crab soup, lump crab cake app, and Cesar salad came to 150 range), but everything thing was DELICIOUS and we were given some olive tapenade courtesy from the chef.

My favorite place when in Norfolk. Dry aged rib eye was the best I have had. Not cheap but worth the money. We have sat both upstairs in the more formal area and then this time in the lower level, which is a little less formal. Great for visiting with friends.

Excellent is the best way to describe Byrd and Baldwin Brother’s Steakhouse. Overall experience was wonderful. All menu items of choice were very good; one that stood out the most was the she crab soup. I’ve tasted many she crab soups; none of them compare. I highly recommend this place. If you are looking for great service, great food, great atmosphere and promptness, you can’t go wrong.

The food here was amazing. I would definitely say they have THE BEST STEAK in town. My husband and I had their rib eye and it was cooked to perfection. They also have an excellent selection of wine and I believe you can tour their wine cellar. It's a perfect date venue, quiet, unplugged and very sophisticated. Would love to go there again when my husband gets back from deployment.
