So glad we decided to visit Red Rocks again! (We had extremely bad service a few weeks ago.) On this trip, the service was excellent. Our server, Bianca, was informative, attentive and extremely pleasant. She made us feel like we were her only table, although we watched her serve several others. We had Chicken Marsala, a burger and coconut cake for dessert. All were outstanding. Getting a bottle of wine half-price on Monday nights just added to our experience. It is a little bit of a drive for us, but Red Rocks is a favorite!

Always good meal but please serve ketchup or at least have those that bring food to the table ask. Everyone wants ketchup with a burger and fries and when you don’t bring it out or bring out one tiny serving, food gets cold while waiting for servers to get back to the table. Also, our waiter was great but was definitely spread thin with tables. Looks like there isn’t enough wait staff to accommodate the quantity of diners.

Food was great. Nice hidden spot if you can’t get reservations elsewhere. Service was great as well.

I'm a West Coast transplant so I've experienced some excellent Japanese restaurants in San Francisco, Seattle, San Jose and other places with large Japanese immigrant communities. Baku served respectable Asian fusion food, with attentive service. But it lacked the easy, joyful feel I've become used to in most sushi bars, and offered no authentic sense of Japan. Instead, Baku was an American restaurant trying really hard to make Japanese food as foreign, mysterious and inaccessible as possible. This was exemplified by the tiny portion of soy sauce the waitress trickled into our dipping bowls as if it were a sacrament, and the multi-page list of sake options ranging up to $200. The black cod was excellent, and the (korean) kalbi was tangy and tasty. I might go back some day, but not before trying some other options in my search for something more simple and authentic.

About the restaurant
Tacos. Tequila. Whiskey. Serving up authentic, Mexican street fare, and a selection of over 100 tequilas and American whiskeys. Bakersfield is a spot where the food is simple, the service is warm and the atmosphere is alive.

The food and service were very great, but since we were there last, they took some of the tacos we liked off the menu(this isn't the first time) but they did add some appetizers. Portions were very good as well
