Bakersfield - OTR
The food was incredible. The only issue we had was they forgot to bring our shareable side dishes we ordered. By the time we realized and saw our waitress again we were nearly finished eating so we didn’t bother with them. We truly look forward to dining there again.
Loved the chips, guacamole and salsa trio. The cauliflower side was delicious. Great margaritas! Enjoyed a variety of tacos. Will return next time we are in Cincinnati!
Birthday lunch for my moms birthday. Food and alcohol were great! Even brought out a birthday shot!
First time there. Guacamole was outstanding but $10 is pretty pricey. Tacos delicious.
A great place to go before seeing some theatre in the area. The food is reasonably priced and delicious; same with the drinks. I've always had good service there but it was exceptional this time around. I was with four other people and we all had a great time.
The service was amazing, the food was great they made sure you felt at home
This was my first time to Bakersfield. It was good that I made my reservation in advance, this place was full. It was crowded and loud, but the food and drinks were amazing! Their guac was “The best” i have ever tasted. Loved their fish taco and huitlacoche. Their Margarita was “awesome”.
The only thing that I dont like here is this place is too small and congested with so many people. But still i would love to go again for their food and drinks. 😋😋
Always SOOOOOO good.
Tacos are amazing! Braised cheese appetizer super!
First time there. I really enjoyed the Al Pastor taco and the short rib taco. The cauliflower was great, too.
The service was great. The food was good, but overpriced. It was too loud.
The food overall very good. Very fresh and loved this.
I do believe the fixings had too many competitors in the mix, meaning, I would have enjoyed more pure taste and less spices...the flavor was lost in all the spice. Less spice is more. If you’re interested in getting more trio plates ordered, put a very tiny amount of both on the sides of the 🌮 tacos, not just in trio, that way it can be ordered...slightly less salt with the chips too, just drank more water. Overall, very good.
I really enjoyed my tacos. The guacamole was disappointing because it was VERY salty. I wish we would have gotten better service, our waiter come one to check on us, did not bring out our appetizer or food and took forever to bring out the check. Also I feel like they should ask if we need our menu explained because for me and my boyfriend we already knew what everything was.
Great food and great service. Fun atmosphere. We ended up having half the reservation party expected and took up more room than needed, but they were very understanding.
Our server was very helpful with suggestions, and everything we ordered was delicious. I highly recommend the carnitas taquitos and roasted cauliflower.
Bakersfield had delicious sangria and a wide assortment of tacos and other Mexican dishes. Great value for money and in the heart of OTR!
I am a huge Bakersfield fan! I went there for my 21st birthday back in March and it was a memorable experience. They made up for a slight mishap, but I've been working in the restaurant industry for 3 years so I understand. They did a very good job and of taking care of me and my friends and I enjoy each night I dine there. I'm a taco girl and always, always, always recommend Bakersfield as the go-to taco joint! You must try the guac, queso, and shrimp taco. Delicious!
.Easy like Sunday morning
Thanks for stopping in! Thanks, Emily Young General Manager Bakersfield OTR
Great food! Great staff!
Thanks so much for the shoutout! Thanks, Emily Young General Manager Bakersfield OTR
Everything was good, wasn’t a fan of the shrimp or steak but that’s me. The short rib was the best though mom had a good bday thank you
The food is very good, but a little expensive. The service was great. The margarita was strong.
Went for Mother’s Day. My mom’s first time in OTR. Lily was wonderful. Would always recommend!
Fantastic tacos and margaritas
Booked a reservation for Easter and they weren’t open!!! NICE APP
The food was good, but for our reservation we were placed at a round table with people we didn’t know. I understand this at a community, long table but at a round table I was unable to speak to my party that was seated on either side of me and was looking at another group the whole dinner. Didn’t think this was a great experience for talking with friends from out of town and after making a reservation far in advance.
Open Table didn’t get our reservation to them so they didn’t have a table for us - very disappointed with Open Table! Bakersfield got us in and apologized and we had a great meal and great service!
My daughter & I love going there. Great, food, drinks, service & music!!!
Bakersfield’s Queso is terrific, chips are crisp and just right amount of salt, had the Pastor (Pork) Tostados - the best gluten free food I’ve had in a long time! Service was attentive and great. My only question - I booked through open table for 2 and the only times available were 5:30 and 8. We chose 5:30 and rushed to make it there in time, from 5:30-6:30 there were 6 open tables near us.
Excellent food, excellent service! Will definitely be back, everyday if I could 😊
Great! Will be coming back again!
This is my second time at Bakersfield and the margaritas and tacos and just excellent! Girls night was a real success.. I’ll be back OTR for more lovely food soon!
The bartender was great, and taquitos and guac. are a must have. Hostesses were not nice, bordering on rude.
NEVER disappointed. Amazing food/service/ambiance. LOVE THIS RESTAURANT!
Wonderful! Service was great and the food was fantastic (as were the Margs)!
Absolutely loved the food, ambiance and service. Would visit again soon.
Food is unbelievable and I'm craving it right now as I write this review. The staff all work together to expeditiously bring your food and drinks to you. And they are extremely friendly!!
Food is always great! Staff works hard to accommodate with the space, super thankful we can make reservations here bc with two little kids, we wouldn’t choose to go to much else in OTR when their attention spans won’t last past a wait time. Thank you!
can tell there have been changes in the menu and overall management. the margaritas are still good and appreciate being able to reserve a table. food standards aren’t as high - cold, over-priced, and inconsistent.
Longtime customer (avg. 3 times a month). I go for the food - which is excellent, not the ambience. I’d visit more and recommend more if that aspect improved. Certain team members come off rude and are unhelpful, seems like a morale issue. It’s very loud, not ideal for first date unless you go past 930pm. They seem to be concistently understaffed so it can take awhile to get drinks and starters out. Menu was recently updated. Prices increased slightly. Wish they hadn’t changed the Hongos Tostada it used to be my favorite vegetarian option. Glad to see they started taking reservations.
Great food but there’s room for improvement.
