It has a really nice bar, with mediocre food. If you're looking for a restaurant, I would not pick Bakersfield. If you're looking for a fun bar experience and you can get some food to soak up the alcohol, then it's great!

We loved the addition of outside seating, and the food and margaritas were, as always, delicious!

My reservation actually never went through. I received a confirmation email and the calendar reminder, but whenever I called the restaurant to say I was running a few minutes late, it was never in the system on their end! Luckily my friend and I were able to be seated on a busy day!

Chips and verde salsa were excellent. Red salsa not so much, and hot. Tacos were not very good. I had heard so many good things about this place but was disappointed by tacos. They were chalky and tasteless. I do not know what all the hype was about. Drinks were good, and our server was great. Enjoyed the atmosphere and had a nice night out, but will only be back for drinks and chips/salsa.

We go to Bakersfield every time we stay in downtown. The food is always delicious! We get the trio appetizer every time and the baja shrimp tacos. My husband always gets the margarita which he says is one of the best in town. It is always a great food experience! I would highly recommend Bakersfield.

The appetizers and tacos were very good. The drinks were good just not a large selection due to covid. The only drawback about the entire experience was the fact it's so hard to find parking downtown around 5:30. So, there was a little hike before dinner!

Another great visit to Bakersfield. Sat inside. Would ask for a high top next time instead of being at a picnic table.

Great for a date night or having a night out with friends! Tacos were really good but the guacamole was AMAZING! The margarita pitcher was definitely worth it as well. Service was good and the staff was friendly. Will be coming back for sure!

When I made the reservation the dress code was listed as business casual. My girlfriend and I made sure to be dressed appropriately. However, this isn’t a upscale restaurant. It’s no different than a Emilianos. Most people were dressed very causal. So if you go, no need to dress up for the occasion.

Wonderful food as always. Nice outdoor seating. Kitchen was a bit backed up and it took an unusual amount of time to get the chips we ordered. Overall, very happy with our experience and we will be back.

Grabbed dinner with a friend and it was refreshing to have a “normal” get together but still feel like all COVID guidelines were being followed! We sat outside and loved the fresh air and warm weather. The food was great, I got a half salad and a taco! Our waitress was very nice and checked on us often. Definitely recommend!

It unfortunately wasn’t open unlike what it said online. My family and I were unable to eat there even though we were able to make a reservation. We were very disappointed.

I loved the outdoor seating! I hadn’t been to Bakersfield in over a year since the pandemic, and all staff members were great with masks and regulations. It was spaced out and the food and drinks were amazing, as always!

Spoke with Samantha the Mgr on phone. She was very accommodating for our group. We brought cake that they refrigerated for us. Table was a little tight for our group. Service was good and food/beverages good. Great value.
