The special of baby back ribs were awful. They were extremely tough. We husband couldn’t even finish them they were so bad.

My strip steak was perfect. They just need to take the ribs off the menu.

We went here for Easter brunch. The service was very slow, and it look nearly an hour to get our food. The food was pretty average. It was our first time and most likely our last.

Their signature salad - Four Farmers - is the best ever. Steak was just OK. Service was good. A very pleasant lunch.

Shane on me. Yelped steakhouse near me. They are not!
Only 2 on menu. Strip steak I had was very good.
Yelp is like that. Sometimes not really accurate.
Don't know how to fix that. I am from out of town. Ask for something specific, don't always get it.

Our fifth time dining here in the last year and a half and never disappointed. The food is incredible, atmosphere is relaxing yet classy, entire staff is always pleasent and seem to genuinely enjoy working there. Our waiter Chris was exceptionally personable and knowledgeable. Great wine paring suggestion to compliment our delicious meal. Will definitely request him at the time of our next reservation. Have recommended this establishment to multiple people on multiple occasions.

We had a late meal and were 1 of 2 sets seated in the main dining space. Our server forgot to bring our drink order. The server also forgot to bring our after-dinner drink order. Although overall the food was great, it was sad that no one paid any attention to the "basics".

A well-run traditional restaurant. Food was good, we chose from a ‘restaurant week’ special menu, value was excellent. This place is a very safe bet when you have eclectic mix of guests. Accommodating special requests easily.

I often recommend having a girlfriend’s luncheon at Bakersfield as it provides great food, service, and setting.
This time did not disappoint, as we had a great server, Jody, who was attentive and personable, along with a well presented and great tasting food experience.
The wine selection is varied, allowing you to find the perfect pairing for your meal.
This is a place that I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you to experience!

We had a delightful birthday dinner at Bakersfield. Love the quiet atmosphere and great drinks. Best restaurant martini in the western suburbs. Our server was charming and very supportive in answering our questions. We all ordered the same thing and agreed it was delicious! (Knife and Fork Chicken). Thanks to our server for helping us have it the way it originally was made - with mashed potatoes - and she even brought us the croutons that used to top it. Really, Bakersfield, don't improve on perfection.that chicken did not need to be changed! Love the bite in the sauce. Our server noticed it was our daughter's birthday when checking her ID and brought us a birthday dessert. What special service! We will return.

My husband and I went to dinner Sat night at Bakersfield. The food was great. The service was good. They brought us the wrong dessert but the waiter was very helpful in helping us choose sides and replacing sides. A party of loud , maybe intoxicated people sat near us during our dinner and it was difficult to have a conversation once that happened. Not the restaurant's fault but it made me give a less then stellar review.

This was a belated V-Day night with the wife. We've eaten in just about every restaurant that's occupied this spot on Ogden for 30-plus years. The food was great, the service was great, other than the wife saying her cocktail was a little weak, everything, including entrees and appetizer, was fantastic.

This restaurant is very nice, and has a bit of a limited menu but both our offerings were great. The only downside is that our server, the daytime bartender, had many tables to cover and was running around so much that she got behind in refilling our glasses. This is not her fault, but rather a likely result of staffing decisions made by management.

As always, the food was good and the service was great but the alcohol prices have increased significantly. I probably won't return because the beer and wine prices have really shot up and are substantially higher when compared to their peer restaurants.

We went for Valentines Day, saw an email about the price fixe menu, lovely choices. Arrived at 7:00 and already out of oysters. Chef refused to substitute a seafood option. Had very small piece of warm Brie and a watermelon salad. Entrees were good. Waitress took our dessert order early to be sure they were available. When time for dessert came they were out of creme brûlée. Only chocolate choices, which I do not care for. Waitress offered a few others. Had a very dry key lime parfait with way too much whipped cream. Manager did comp us an after dinner drink. Waitress was lovely. Won’t go back for a while. Especially not for a special occasion.

Went with my wife for Valentines Day. We had a 5:30 reservation and they ran out of the one desert we wanted. How does that happen but not that big of a deal for us or the manager. Our waitress was awesome, and you could tell she really likes her job. We appreciate that.

Bakersfield should be the best restaurant between Oakbrook and Naperville but it's never consistant. Sometimes is amazing and other times just blah. This time it was blah other than our waitress. When it opened we loved it and went often but I think the menu has been the same for the past year so we find other options that are more worth the money.

We still love ya Bakersfield and we hope you can figure it out.
