Waited 15 minutes after being seated for anyone to acknowledge we had been seated. After we ordered we received our appetizer within normals wait time house we main course came an hour and 15 minutes after we received our appetizer and waitress never checked in on us. Not the best experience!!

It’s a pretty perfect business model - keep a limited menu with lots of small/inexpensive options, keep service friendly and fast. We were in and out - with two cocktails each, a shared appetizer and a salad and four tacos for entrees - in under an hour. The food was delicious, especially the short rib queso. Cocktails were superb.

As usual we were greeted with a smile and welcome ! and We were about 15 minute late for our reservation and she said it was no problem, because I did call ahead but she said and not worry there was room for us. So that made us feel very welcomed even though we were late.

Our server seem to be very nice and kind however we felt rushed and I don’t know if it was because we were 15 minutes late for our reservation but she seemed very impatient with us. We felt we had to hurry and make food choices when we weren’t quite ready and we also had questions about certain things pn the menu and she seemed to be somewhat irritated that she had to explain it to us. So that was very disenchanting for our dining experience but we made the best of it because we were enjoying each other’s company.

As far as our seating was concerned the caveat was we were seated at the very last table directly next to the kitchen so it was quite cumbersome to get up to go to the lavatory and the noise level was quite bad, Including hearing servers complain about what was going within the establishment.

This in no way shape or form will never stop us from dining at Bakersfield because we love the food and its location However we will be sure to decline the table next to the Kitchen and lavatory as I’m not a fan of dining near those areas. But the food was excellent as always!

Excellent food. Rushed service. We had a 6:30 reservation and we were walking out the door at 7:30. We look forward to our date nights and would have liked to linger but that is clearly not the vibe. So, next time we will have lunch and bring the kids. Getting food in and out quickly will be great for them.

Lots of loitering across the street made it very intimidating coming in. We were followed by a couple people and it ruined the ambiance for us. Food is very good though we will definitely be coming back if the loitering is under control.

Came out for a double date on Mother’s Day weekend. 930 reservation, was asked to move tables about an 1hour and 30min later saying they were closing down the side we were on. We were unfortunately given to the “server” mitch and had a terrible experience. My husbands a kitchen manager, I’m a former agm, and our friends own their own business, we all know that customer service is key. I cannot believe management was not involved after our “altercation” at the table. Very disappointed.
