Our experience at the Padre Hotel Dining Room (The Belvedere) was outstanding and thoroughly enjoyable in every way. I'd requested a nice corner table and got it. The hostess and wait staff, food, ambience, and of course, my incomparable date :) were all top drawer. Truly a great experience. We'll be back. 5 Stars!

Food was excellent! Service was great! The decor in the room was nice! The wait in between starter/salad/entree was a little slow. Overall the evening was perfect!

This is one of Bakersfield’s top restaurants on my list, and the portions are hearty. Elegant atmosphere makes for a good place to celebrate special occasions.

We had a great time for our special occasion dinner. You can’t beat their great ambience and service. However, the menu consisted of too many exotic meats, like elk and bison. I’m totally OK with that because I’m not really vegetarian, but there were very minimal vegetable choices for those who are health-conscious.

Can't fault the food but why oh why does the service have to be rushed so? We hadn't finished our starter before the entree had appeared and been squeezed onto our table. No sooner had my wife put her fork down, while still eating, and her plate was whisked away, I was still eating.....
In this sort of restaurant I don't expect to be rushed and made to feel that we needed to go, very disappointed, but could not fault the food.

The Belvedere Room at the Padre is one of my favorite restaurants in Bakersfield, offering a filet that's second-to-none. Our most recent meal was phenomenal, from the crispy lamb belly appetizer to the rack of elk entree.

My wife and I wrapped up our evening 10 steps away, at the Prospect, watching dueling pianos and sipping cocktails. All in all, a wonderful evening and highly recommended experience.

We came to the Belvedere Room for our 3rd wedding anniversary. The food and service were excellent! I had the lobster mac and cheese, and my husband ate the salmon. My dish was delicious, and the salmon melted in his mouth! The portions were just right, and we enjoyed the romantic and quiet setting.

Sent the soup back and the waiter said people the night before were also sending the soup back. Why on earth didn't they make a pot of new soup? Wasn't impressed at all.

Romantic evening with really interesting flavors. The menu is "ala carte" which means it can get pretty expensive but it is very nice for a once a year event.

Salmon was smelly. Wine glass was chipped. Very limited wine menu. Only four desserts to choose from.

I planned a family adult meal during the holidays. It was really great, great quality food. The padre is perfect for an adult mature crowd. We had a good night, with no complaints.

What a nice Christmas dinner I had here!  Such a beautiful setting, tastefully decorated for the season.  My children and I had our main meal at the Belvedere Room.  I have visited my son many times in Bakersfield, but this was the first time we dined at the Padre Hotel.

Naturally, the restaurant was busy on Christmas night as expected, so the service was a little slow, but not uncomfortably so.  I found a new wine (Jackson Estates Chardonnay) which helped with the wait.  Kelsey was a friendly and attentive server.

The three of us all had something different which was nice to share.  A lamb dinner, beef dinner and lobster tail -- something for everyone.  I think the best dish was an appetizer -- the lobster macaroni and cheese.  Served in a small kettle, it is mouth-watering.  Very rich, though...

My lobster was tasty and a decent size -- about 6 ounces.  My son had the beef special with mashed potatoes which was a large portion (he took home a doggy bag).  My daughter raved about her lamb (also a large plate with another doggy bag).

We were way too stuffed for dessert, but Kelsey brought us an Oreo cookies and cream cheesecake on the house because we had to wait so long for our food.  Nice touch!

Prices are what you'd expect -- maybe a little on the high side.  About $250.00 for the 3 of us after I tipped out, so be prepared.  I rated this restaurant 4 stars on YELP.
