By far hands down EXCELLENT!!! Staff was more then friendly and accommodating/ knowledgeable and the Chef.....Outstanding
It was pretty decent. The food definitely could’ve been a little better, but overall loved the atmosphere
We went for our anniversary and we had the best dinner. Everything was delicious and it was absolutely wonderful service.
Excellent service, food, cocktails, and wine recommendations. Worth every penny spent. Only thing to note was that more than one person arrived to the dining room wearing flip flips- one gentleman even in shorts and flip flops- when the website states "Business casual dress is recommended and required for events in the dining room." That said, it certainly did not affect my experience there and will definitely return.
It was a wonderful experience.
The Service was amazing, I would recommend using the valet service because parking in Downtown Norfolk is horrible....Once our food arrived it was amazing , couldn't even finish it all. A little on the expensive side but overall everything was Amazing...
A truly exceptional experience from drinks down at the bar through dessert. Staff was very friendly and created a welcome atmosphere that made us feel right at home. We celebrated our Anniversary there and they even included a card signed by the staff. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
I have wanted to dine at Byrd and Baldwin for some time, so my expectations were very high. The food, service, and atmosphere was amazing. Byrd and Baldwin far exceeded my before diner expectations.
Extremely happy with everything from the perfectly cooked stack to the amazing service and atmosphere. Defiantly worth the money, even though it was a bit pricey. All together extremely satisfied and would go back again.
The waiter was exceptional, made me feel like he really cared about our experience
Reservation was for 9:30pm
We were sat at downstairs.
Upstairs was preferred.
Place was amazing. Totally worth the prices. Everything was cooked to perfection and everyone was super nice and attentive to our needs. They called a few days before our reservation to see if it was a special occasion (it was) and did some really special things for us and our first anniversary. I couldn't ask for a better place to take my wife for our anniversary.
The steaks are really good. Two other dishes the tuna and the lamb rack are not as good as expected, because the presentations are not too professional. The huge potato pile undermines the focus that is supposedly put on the lamb, same things happened to the grilled tuna is little plain and dry, and the sides came with it dominated the plate. The steaks are nice still.
I'd long heard about Byrd & Baldwin, but never taken the time to make a reservation. It was a wonderful experience. Excellent food, wine, service and atmosphere. A true gem in downtown Norfolk.
Modeled after the old time steak houses. A truly great restaurant, superb food, perfect service and a nice atmosphere. It's not a quick or inexpensive restaurant, but IDEAL for special occasions, particularly if you like meat! You get what you pay for. We have visited as a couple and also as a group. We've never been disappointed.
On vacation with my wife
Impeccable service, excellent food. Save yourself from driving to similar establishments in VB and enjoy this gem of Norfolk. Look forward to going back!
One of the best Fine dining places in Hampton Roads Area. Well worth the money. Make sure you get the tour tour of the Wine Cellar!
Food spectacular. Knowledgeable waitstaff. Amazing restaurant.
Mixed review. The service was excellent. Ambience was nice. The food varied. We had the she crab soup which was very good, and the French onion soup which was terrible. It was watered down and tasteless. We then had a ribeye special which was ok. The meat was good quality but the flavor was bland. The potatoes/carrots it came with were good. Overall though not worth the price. We also had the tuna and that was delicious. For dessert we had the chocolate sin cake and the sorbets, both were very good. The coffee was soso.
We had a good time overall.
Great time, food and service were really great! I only had one big complaint but it’s important. In the menu they listed an add on 6 or 8 oz Lobster tail. Sounds good, but listed as market price.
Issue for me was $48 bill for an 8oz tail????? That’s ridiculous!
My review would be much better if I didn’t get taken by the Lobster tail price.
Not up to its usual wonderful service and every course being outstanding. While both my dry aged rib eye and my wife’s buffalo steak were cooked to perfection and were delicious, my escargot were over cooked and the onion soup was average. Service was slower than usual and may have been the result of several large parties our server had in addition to us. I would recommend Byrd and Baldwin and will return but on this visit I’d give it a “B” rather than its usual “A+”.
They truly made my special occasion, special. From the time we walked in, until we walked out, everyone was attentive and congratulated me!
Enjoyed Mother's Day dinner! Spectacular food, the baked potato soup was the BEST I have ever had. My husband enjoyed the big T-bone and our son loved the lamp chops. Service was just enough without being overbearing. Would definitely go back again - it's a true special treat!!
Thanks for making my Mother's Day wonderful!!
The ambience and staff were absolutely perfect. The steaks were done perfectly to temperature on the inside but were not char-broiled, they were gray on the outside.
Dessert was delicious.
The food was very good and the service was exceptional, very friendly yet professional. The valet service is a very nice touch.
We celebrated our wedding anniversary. Byrd and Baldwin is a great venue for a special occasion such as an anniversary. The service was impeccable at all times but never intrusive. Our drinks and appetizers arrived quickly. The presentation was beautiful, with each plate being almost a work of art. All selections were delicious.
The steaks were cooked to perfection. We went on the recommendation of a friend. This restaurant was on point with everything. This is a fine dining experience, and prepare to pay ala carte prices, but I promise you won't be disappointed.
food was good but not better than ruth chris. lacked the seasoning. everything was perfect!
We live a couple hours away but when we are with in 30 min drive we make sure to have dinner here. The lump crab appetizer NEVER fails to please. The portions are substantial though the tomahawk steak was smaller than I have had at other restaurants The food is delicious and we will return
Outstanding. Our waiter, Emmanuel was awesome. Great food and great atmosphere.
Outstanding fare, wonderful service....beautiful dining room! Well done!!!
Great experience!!! Will definitely be on the list for next occasion.
Just about everything was great except my brother had the salmon & the waiter said it was sushi grade so he had it basically raw. It tasted great however made him very sick. I don't think it was sushi grade! The steaks, mashed potatoes & appetizers we're delicious. We would return.
Filet was excellent as well as the crab cake Appetizer.
Lobster Mac and Blue Cheese was incredible!
This place was amazing. My husband and I went to Byrd and Baldwin Bros Steakhouse for our wedding anniversary and everything was perfect. From the kindness and knowledge of our waiter, to appetizers, entrees, all the way to dessert.. This was a 10/10! It is a little pricey.. but the food quality makes up for it definitely! I reccomend this place for special occasions!
Our second time at Byrd and Baldwin excellent place and excellent food. Noise level was no fault of the restaurant.
Parents: do not bring an infant to a restaurant where people are having a meal like this! Or at the very least take them out of the dining area until they are calm.
Excellent customer service, as well as service while dining. Knowledgeable waiter, and very accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will return.
Visited the restaurant to celebrate 6 months of marriage. Everything was wonderful. The only reason why I give 4 stars is because the steak could have been better seasoned. It was a bit bland. Everything else was delicious. Including the elderflower cocktail. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a special event.
