IF YOU’RE GOING TO TAKE YOUR NAME FROM A BADASS LIKE THE PATRON SAINT OF BLACKSMITHS, YOU BETTER BE ABLE TO BACK IT UP. Baldamar marks the turning point where we usher in the new standard for style, service and steak. It means the menu’s made with old-world craft at its core and modern day meat eaters in mind — with flavors forged in fire and folded into pure primal perfection. It’s where every steak is aged 40 days and 40 nights for a taste of biblical proportion, and where crazy-fresh seafood means it was caught during your morning commute. At the bar sits every spirit imaginable, and someone who isn’t afraid to use them. This is more than a new steakhouse. It’s a line in the sand. It’s not just where you celebrate special occasions. It’s where you create them.

Service and ambience are great. The texture and doneness of the sea bass is spot on. I didn't care much for the sauce, soy based. I prefer it simply seasoned with salt, pepper, butter and lemon. Blake is a great sever. I would definitely like to try the beef.

Food and service was amazing. I could eat the bread for life and a glass of wine everyday. All the shareables and apps are fantastic. Thank you for a great experience.

I was really quite pleased overall with our evening. We are greeted at the door,it was my mom‘s 85th birthday. They are kind enough to have a table set also they gave her a birthday card with a $50 gift card for the next time. I was very impressed with the service.

Exceptional service. I did not have high expectations for the burger or steak. But when I got to try both they were the best burger and steak I’ve ever had. The burger was better than red cow. Tasted like a premium blend of beef. The steak was so well season it’s exactly what you go to a steak restaurant for. Can’t wait to go again.

It was our first visit, our Wedding Anniversary, and we enjoyed. We were with friends that had been there a few times before. The staff is friendly, efficient, and overall, I felt "safe" with the new norm for dinner out. (It was our first inside a restaurant since March 13th!)
The food was delish, and the chocolate cake they gave us in recognition of our 58 years was over the top! Four shared and and it was "the best"....We will be back.

I used to eat here all the time and this time the main dishes were overpriced and not good. I got the braised short rib and there was like 8 small morsels of short rib in the dish a weird piece of bread on the bottom and to many fried onions that made up the dish and i also got a poached egg on top that i did not ask for. very disappointed. My friends steak and potato was very bland and over cooked.

Server Nicklaus, was very attentive. I like my drinks spicy and he recommended a great tasting drink. They food was delicious. Perfect recommendation for sharing portions. The added King crab legs were a bit skimpy, Top half was cut in half so it was the size of regular snow crab leg ☹️.
We ended with a delicious cheesecake. Best cheesecake I’ve ever had.
Thank you!

Another amazing dining experience at Baldamar! Stacy remembered so many details from our last visit, it was very impressive and really helped offset how busy it was, we barely noticed some extended times due to the fantastic attention to detail from our server. The manager Heather once again made us feel like we were just about the only guests in the building - such personal attention, and she once again went above and beyond in many ways!! She helped us extend our evening a while longer for complete relaxation that we truly needed. Of course the food was phenomenal - Bread is Life is an absolute must, steaks cooked perfectly, and the crab leg "bling" is mouth watering. After moving inside to the bar (patio umbrellas are well selected for the sun angle, made for a nice meal outside) for perfect and unique cocktails (with continued incredible kindness and hospitality!) we somehow found room for the heavenly cheesecake recently added to the menu.

Thank you to the talented bartenders, server Stacy, and especially manager Heather for an inspired and fun evening. We cannot wait to come back again very soon!!!

Our waitress was wonderful, great inside atmosphere, well designed space. Food was amazing. Salmon was perfect. You will forget you are so close to a mall. 160 for two of us with tip and shared dessert, no alcohol. Would be just as enjoyable to have an appetizer and drink here.

The service was not that great. We didn't even get the complimentary bread tray like other tables did. The waiter was very slow. The food is very overpriced. The restaurant atmosphere was very nice though.

We visited for my mom's birthday and it was fantastic, as always. Our server Emma was remarkable and made great suggestions, and the bartender Wendi came out to the patio to discuss the cocktails with us. The drinks are a high point, with innovative combinations. We usually choose multiple appetizers, since they are excellent - particularly the ribs and elote and amazing wings! The Burger 32 is outstanding (and huge). One of us won't eat anything but the pork shank, since he says it's the best in the world. Also, the attention to cleanliness and social distance is really impressive - we are pretty picky and were very impressed!

The service was terrible. The servers were slow and had to be constantly reminded to do basic courtesies like refilling water, bringing dessert menu, order a drink, bring check, etc. It wasn’t because too many people — they were constantly standing over talking with each other.

My wife and I went to Baldamar for our 25th Anniversary and were not disappointed. We had the ahi tuna poke for an appetizer and the hanger steak, a ribeye and the brussels sprouts for our meals. Everything was delicious and prepared perfectly. We will definitely be back!

We were thrilled to see that Baldamar was open considering the current health climate. We had been treated to Baldamar on New Year’s Eve and was just as impressed then as we are now. The meat was exceptional giving Ruth Chris completion. The wedge salad was delicious as was the bread served with different spreads—addictive!
