Bakersfield Ratings and Reviews
As always, Bakersfield is solid. Sarah was excellent. We were there for Friday lunch on a cold day. Good crowd. Sat in quiet booth by bar. We had the salmon (really good) and the grilled cheese. First time with grilled cheese and it was a good option. But always safe to get the burger which I will get at my next visit. We look forward to returning.
Took all of the grandparents there after a night at the Morten arboretum. They all cannot stop raving about how perfect it was. IMO, everything was very good (but not quite outstanding), something on the fairly wide ranging menu for everybody and a decent draft selection. If I needed a place for a client dinner out that way I’d for sure revisit Bakersfield
We have eaten at Bakersfield many times but tonight was not a typical night at this restaurant. We were seated ( for 5 people) at a table for 8. Once they realized it was for 5 not 6 people, they squished us in a table for 4 and did not bring a 5th chair. Then we ordered a couple appetizers which were fine. Our salad and dinner came out at the same time. Since our table was already crowded, we had to hold the salad in our lab to eat. This is usually a very good restaurant. Tonight they were not at their best.
We've been to Bakersfield a few times for slightly special occasions and it has been a wonderful experience every time. The food is great with a nice variety of choices without being overwhelming. Great wine selection but you can also bring your own for a corkage fee or if you get it from Standard Market across the street, the corkage fee is waved. Quiet, classy ambiance and the service was impeccable. Would highly recommend and we'll definitely be back.
Once in a great while I have had a superior restaurant experience. Bakersfield qualified as exceptional. The food was terrific - and when I asked our server about a sauce used in one dish, the chef came out with the recipe written out for me! Our server was totally on the ball and very attentive. And the food---the food was out of this world. I love seafood and it was better than many other highly-rated restaurants. And they also served Poke - the Hawaiian fish salad dish that was fabulous. Highly recommended for anyone in the Western Suburbs. We will go back as often as we can.
Disappointed. Have been coming here since the opening. The menu has not evolved, the portions have gotten smaller and the prices are high for what you get. $16 for a salad that could be split in half for lunch the next day is fine but this is no longer the case. The brinded pork chop that had a great presentation in the past is now salty and half the size. $50 for a bottle of wine that could be bought for $19 is the icing on the cake. I think serious revamp needs to be considered because Bakersfield has taken a dive
We love going to Bakersfield for their burgers. A group of us from work made a lunch reservation to celebrate a colleague's birthday. We arrived at 11:15am and were seated promptly. As we were one of the first lunch groups (and had noted on the reservation that this was a group from work and needed hasty service), we did expect to be out before 12:30. For whatever reason, the meal service seemed to take a long time after we placed our order. Maybe it was just the day. At any rate, we recommend this restaurant if you have the time for a relaxing meal.
They did not have our reservation. They asked if it was made through Open Table and said that happens all the time. They advised us to call in our reservation in the future. I will not use open table for reservations going forward. I was very embarrassed.
Patio was lovely as we enjoyed our cocktails out there, wait staff is attentive and nice. Tuna poke had a lot of tendons, so that was unpleasant, grilled porkchop is to share, good but not a WOW. We went because the changed to fall menu, it's just not interesting.
This is one of our favorite restaurants for a special night out. The wait staff is very cordial - we were even pleasantly greeted by a server on break in the parking lot. Our favorite menu item is the Filet Mignon. It is incredibly tender and seasoned to perfection and the fingerling potatoes which accompany it are equally excellent.
