Great restaurant. The vibes were great, staff was pleasant and helpful. The food was amazing and drinks were good. We got the pitcher of sangria for $34 it was enough for both of us to have 4drinks
Hi Tiffany! I am so glad you enjoyed your experience with us. I love splitting the pitcher with a friend! It's definitely the perfect amount of margarita if you plan on getting more than one drink each. Come back and see us soon! - Suzannah, Administrative Manager
I loved this place and our waitress was very nice, caring , courteous and professional
Amazing!! Literally my favorite spot in detroit.
a friend and I went for dinner and drinks and wow, DELICIOUS! The pitcher of margarita gave us both 4 cocktails each... GREAT VALUE and really friendly staff!
Always love spending a night at the Bakersfield Detroit bar.
My date and I had a wonderful time. Brittani was an excellent server, and the food was delicious. We really enjoyed the pineapple margarita!
Best Margs! And great service. Food was cold tho.
Bakersfield is one of my favorite places to grab dinner. Quick, tasty, and great service 🌮
So yummy! Our service, Kora, was amazing! Gave great recommendations and the pineapple margarita was by far one of the best I've ever tried. 10/10. Great for dates, meeting with friends, or grabbing a drink!
Hi Olivia! Thanks for taking the time to review! Cora is absolutely wonderful, and I am so glad she was able to give you all a memorable experience. Be sure to come see us again soon. Cheers! - Suzannah, Administrative Manager
Over all a great experience our party had open seating reservations for a 6 PM dinner and we were seated right away We sat outside in their picnic table area Ot by our choice we didn’t like that too well too many public people walking right by our food area
Hi Dory! Thanks for the feedback! We try to seat guests in their desired area, so we can always move you around if you would like! Be sure to come see us again soon for some tasty tacos. - Suzannah, Administrative Manager
Slow service on this night. Food and drinks were still good though.
I am sorry to hear you didn't have the greatest service in terms of speed. I am so glad the food and drinks were still great. Please come back and see us soon! We would love the opportunity to give you quick and great service. - Suzannah, Administrative Manager
My server Billy was amazing. Energetic, knowledgeable, upbeat, friendly and pleasant. He truly enhanced our dining experience. He should be singled out as one of your gems. I would definitely return and ask to be seated in his section.
Hi MissK! We love Billy! I will be sure to pass along the praises. Come back and ask for Billy again soon. Cheers! - Suzannah, Administrative Manager

Hi Tiki, Thank you so much for the love! Come see us again soon for a pineapple margarita!
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

Hi Simon, Thank you so much for the feedback, we appreciate you!
Always excellent food and great service. Although we were not bothered, there were lots of wasps in the restaurant.

Birthday dinner - fabulous food and drinks!
We are so glad you joined us for your birthday festivities! Be sure to come see us again soon. - Suzannah, Administrative Manager
We were so happy Bakersfield reopened. It’s one of our favorite places. Today due to the doors being open there were several bees flying around the place. I also made a reservation and had to sit at bar because no indoor tables were available. We still enjoyed our dining experience just wish there weren’t so many bees.
Thanks for the review! We are definitely battling a little with nature, seems like the bees like our margaritas too! I apologize they affected your dining experience. Hope to see you back in again soon! -Amanda McMahan, General Manager
We frequent Bakersfield and it’s always always on point. Much love for my fav taco spot.
Thank you so much, Hailey! See you back in again soon. -Amanda McMahan, General Manager
The food, drinks and service was great!
Was so glad to see they are open again.
Thank you, Carolyn! We are super grateful and excited to be back open as well. Hope to see you back again soon! -Amanda McMahan, General Manager
Great gear great great
Thank you! -Amanda McMahan, General Manager
This was the most "normal" dining experience I've had since the start of the pandemic. The place was alive with energy. Service was great, food was even better.
Thanks for the love, Kimberly! We are very happy to be open and slinging tacos and margaritas again! Can't wait to have you back in for another visit. -Amanda McMahan, General Manager
Trust me, you won’t regret it. Before any event In Detroit this place is a good food/drinks spot.
Thanks, Matt! -Amanda McMahan, General Manager
Had some very good 🌮 Taco's. Seafood taco is the best.
Thanks for the love! -Amanda McMahan, General Manager
We were running a little late and called the restaurant to let them know. They were accommodating. The employees were everything! We had seat preference (indoor/outdoor), everyone was helpful, and everything was constantly being cleaned. They offered a qr-code for the menu. I watched an employee clean the parking payment machine every 20-30 minutes (guesstimate). We had the queso, several types of tacos, pineapple margarita pitcher, and shots.... everything was perfect.
Thank you so much for the review! We are very grateful to be open in this difficult time and continue to take every precaution to keep our guests and team members happy and safe. It's nice to hear that it is appreciated! Come back and see us soon! -Amanda McMahan, General Manager
Thank you! -Amanda McMahan, General Manager
