Great food and I was happy that the heated patio was open during the partial shut down- would definitely go back! Server was very attentive and friendly :)
We had to wait 20 minutes even with a reservation but when we sat down the service and food was incredible.
Loved it! Delicious food and a great atmosphere with excellent service. Our server was very sweet and made an active effort to social distance whenever possible.
Food and service was excellent. Definitely a place I’ll frequently visit.
I requested to be inside and I was sat outside with high winds
We went for Taco Tuesday. Had a reservation, but waited 20 minutes. After getting to our table, we sat down and waited another 30 minutes for our waitress to bring us waters. While waiting, the music was so incredibly loud we are unable to really hear the people at our table. 30 minutes later I asked the status of our chips and salsa - waitress forgot. Came back 15 minutes later and threw them on the table and walked away. We asked another waitress if she could retrieve our waitress so that we could finally place our order. That took another 40 minutes to receive our tacos (that were the wrong order) not to mention, cold + extremely soggy. The final straw was that we asked to speak to the manager + our waitress said that she was "too busy right now because they were short staffed." Now, I get it, we are in the middle of a global pandemic + grace is of course extended however, this was the worst service and experience we've ever had. Very disappointed and will look elsewhere for Taco Tuesday and never recommend.
Ruby was a fabulous server!

Everything at Bakersfield is great. However, during this season you may want to sit inside due to the foliage that attracts the bees.
Hi Open Table Diner, Thank you for the 5 stars and the feedback! We have been working on many solutions to safely battle the bees and seem to have gotten it under control! Come back and visit again soon! Thank you, Kim McCauley, Regional Managing Partner, Bakersfield Detroit
