    They were setting up the main dining room for Easter so we ate in the Bar which was still very nice. They even gave my wife a delicious cheesecake for her birthday. We Will definitely go back.

    We had a very nice dinner and the food was wonderful. Just a few things on the service, the two extra plate settings were left on the table, did not bring appetizer plates with the wonderful shrimp, also need to work on serving plates and steak knives. I have worked in fine dining and I just notice stupid little things. The waitstaff were all very very cordial. Thank you for a wonderful dinner.

    A very lovely dinner for friends who became engaged. Food was fantastic and drinks were good. The butter cake was without a doubt the tastiest dessert I’ve had bar none. Do yourself a favor and order it please. Surely I’ll go back just to skip my main course and have a go at the butter cake.

    Everything was wonderful from being greeted at entry to the goodbye. The service was wonderful and the food was delicious! The wine selection was great! We went out in a “Fancy Date Night” and it definitely was, especially to the window sweating and view of the green! We will definitely come back.

    Joseph was very nice, but needs a bit more training. Didn’t tell us his name. Didn’t tell us the special. Didn’t come back to the table to see how are food was. Didn’t offer fresh ground pepper. There were a couple of other little things that only a server would notice. The food was great and we both had a very nice dinner. Thank you.

    Our steak was very bloody and not left to set. Chicken is fine. Ambiance is so quiet I feel like I’m in a library. It was for dinner where there are only 2 tables occupied. Just hope it’s much livelier around lunch time. Service is very good though. And they offered to comp our wine.

    The New Year's Eve dinner was excellent. Wonderful ambiance and service was excellent. Only downside was we were seated in the bar area, which was more intimate, but could not hear the band at all. It would have been nice to have had speakers in the bar so that we could enjoy the music as well.

    Only table seated in the dining room, adjacent to the banquet room where a very rowdy party with full amplified speakers and DJ/music provided shouting to communicate to the waiter. Not there fault but not optimal. Side note, good food but this is no where near fine dining. Maybe for Bakersfield?

    Six of us met for a Christmas gathering of siblings/spouses. We were seated at a table in the bar…3 people on the cushioned bench seat and 3 opposite in chairs. The chairs were higher so it was a bit awkward. Being in the bar was not the best dining situation either, what with the TV and bar chatter. The soup, salads and entrees (rib eye, chicken, sea bass) were all great. The sides were not so much…dollops of mash potatoes were cold and tasted like they were made up ahead of time. The veggies were meh. We were promised fresh rolls at the table when first seated but we didn’t get them until the entrees arrived. Would have been nice to have the bread with the soup and/or salad. Waiter was adequate but seemed not to be at the “fine dining” level—in appearance, style or service level. This was more like a “family diner” than a “fine dining” experience.

    Our reservation was for 3:45, we were told by the hostess that that dinner wasn't until 5:30 , so we went to Olive Garden. We were stunned to learn that the reservation meant nothing and the hostess was like " Oh well ". I don't think we will ever utilize Petroleum Club again !

    Food was excellent. Service a little slow but understandable given staffing issues. Great quiet place to have dinner and not have to shout at your companions to have a conversation. Great to have a place in Bakersfield where you can dress up for dinner. Nice view of golf course. Definitely will come back and recommend to others.
