The Belvedere Room at The Padre Hotel Ratings and Reviews
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!
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.
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.
I took my wife there for her birthday dinner. Our server Brian was very knowledgeable about the menu and made great recommendations. I had the duck which was delicious and my wife had the lobster mac and cheese which she really enjoyed too. We shared three sides between us, the brussel sprouts and the mashed potatoes were very enjoyable, but we didn’t care as much for the cauliflower (just our preference). Oh I forgot the salads, the beet and goat cheese was excellent and my wife enjoyed the wedge salad with the heirloom tomatoes. We shared the lemon meringue pie dessert which was also delicious even though the construction does not resemble a traditional pie.
All around we were very pleased with our experience at the Belvedere.
Stopped by on the way for some rest and ended up with a great meal. The food is excellent and service is outstanding. Though the area seems a bit seedy , having a bouncer at the entrance to the hotel makes you feel safer. Highly recommend though make sure to pay the $10.00 valet fee since the safety in parking your car on the street seems to be questionable
I have been to this restaurant for dinner and it was excellent. Unfortunately, Sunday brunch was very disappointing. Food items were not being restocked without our asking and the quality of the hot items was very much lacking. The wait staff was kind and attentive, but without good quality food, the experience was disappointing. I will not go back for Sunday brunch. Hopefully, the dinner experience has not suffered the same problems.
I was in town for business and found the Belvedere restaurant via my OpenTable App. The menu looked very good and that's what drew me to this location. The restaurant is located inside the Padre Hotel and there's nothing fancy about the place. It appears the hotel simply converted one of their large rooms into a table and chair restaurant, there's nothing fancy about this place and definitely no ambiance to speak of! But the food is very good and so is the wine, that's about it!
The Belvedere is very hit or miss on whether it’s good or not. On this occasion our server was very nice and attentive but the kitchen was slow. It took a long time for us to get our appetizers as well as our meal (we were there for 2 hours for a party of 3) and the restaurant wasn’t even full. The food was okay, but there was too much pepper on everything. The best dish we had was the elk, the worst was the lobster mac and cheese...and I love Mac and cheese. I can’t say that anything was terrible but for the price you pay my expectations are higher.
Outstanding dinner Saturday night with friends. Service was the best we've had in Bakersfield and on par with fine dining in a major city. Food was prepared perfectly. We were not rushed through our meal, they did a great job uncorking our wine and decanting it, and it made for a very special evening. We had a wonderful evening.
So sorry I have to say it was a terrible experience. And in spite of the restaurant we still had a great time. It was my birthday and my daughter was meeting the man I love for the first time. The A/C Unit was out in restaurant. The food was mediocre at best. But the cocktails we great! No chocolate cake for my birthday because they were out! We were a sweaty mess and they offered ice once in the three hours we were there. Service was not up to par of what i expected from a fine dining establishment. Highly doubt if any of us will return. Our bill was well over $300. My boyfriend talked to Mario the manager and he reduced the bill by 25% because of the fiasco of a night. But I'm still Not impressed.
Very good food and great venue, service was okay, waitress was a little bit to familiar and made some mistakes.
Forgot to bring wine cooler for our not cheap champagne, we had to ask for it again, when she explained the food on the charcuterie plate she touched the plate while doing so and she asked to many personal questions.
We ordered the chicken with the INCREDIBLE red sauce wish I could remember the name it was UNREAL EXCELLENT!!!!! The meal took too long to get served but TOTALLY worth the wait it was very delicious. Orlando the waiter was a complete sweetheart he was both very professional and extremely pleasant. He kept checking on us (also due to the wait of our meal) and that was a major PLUS. The restaurant was beautiful very elegant and cozy DONT CHANGE A THING. I live in the San Fernando Valley a friend lives in Maricopa we met 1/2 way to have a girl getaway and we truly enjoyed ourselves. Bakersfield has a MAJOR GEM Your Restaurant and The Padre overall and it will always be recommended from my end NO DOUBT !!!! My friend plans on coming back with her husband for a mini getaway for them. Georgette Shugarts is her name and Im sure her husband will love it. My name is Brita Gorman and you get a 5 star rating.
The restaurant is very convenient for our out of town business partners. The menu is great. The sides are great. On several occasions the service has been slow. We had to tell our waiter twice that we where ready to order. The waiter was very good, he asked if we had questions about the menu. The service is just slow.
We went here after a movie. The restaurant was about 1/2 full. Our waiter was excellent. The drinks arrived promptly, as did our salads. The entrees took quite a while...the kitchen, not our waiter.
The portions were adequate, but if you were sharing were small.
