We went to dinner as a family. The food is always very good and they have a nice wine selection. The service is great. We have been here several times and always come back.

We always have a great dinner at Bakersfield. My compliments to the Chef and our Server. I had the filet and my husband had the Delmonico Steak. Both were excellent and service was great.

We had a lovely late lunch to celebrate my friend's birthday. We both had the salmon which was delicious! Bakersfield brought out a complimentary dessert with a lit candle, too!

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.

Food, drinks and service were good although time between waiter’s greeting and return for drink orders was extremely long. He couldn’t remember he had introduced himself before. Not what we expected for the expense.

We love to eat at Bakersfield, we came tonight to celebrate an anniversary. The food and service we're fantastic. However when we left at 7:30 there were tons of kids. No biggie for us, but may bother others

Everything was good, but the food was nothing special to set it apart. Waiter was friendly and attentive. About $175 for two with one drink each, salad, main, dessert and coffee, plus tip. Have paid that for much more exciting options.

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.

Food is tasty, if you order the hanger steak I'd suggest requesting a little more garlic to bring out more flavor. Service was great, ambience is nice, and the salted caramel ice cream is a MUST! (you have to request it)

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.

I typically enjoy this restaurant. However this stay wasn't the best. Service was good with interesting wait staff. Drinks are good as always. Halibut was definitely not a strong dish and not worthy of the $38 price tag. I was between the salmon and the halibut and made the wrong choice.
