Salmon was a bit well done.
Pork belly app was really good.
Wedge salad was great (as always).
Oxtail Pappardelle was very good, but topped with a dollop of goat cheese - which (sadly) my wife can’t eat. But, on the upside, I can. ;-)

We stayed overnight at the Padre Hotel and had dinner in the Belvedere Room. These are difficult times for restaurants, but they are clearly doing their best. The food was good, and the service very good. We particularly appreciated Charles, who was both personable and professional.

The angus ribeye was comparable to a steak from Vons. I’d recommend looking into one with more marbling rather than having a lean steak. Secondly, the asparagus was a tad gritty, like sand or dirt. Overall, the food was good, especially the mushroom risotto.

We had a reservation, arrived on time, only to be told they were closed and are not open except on Friday and Saturday nights. No apology with me holding the reservation in hand…except basically to say it was our fault for not calling and instead using Open Table. Also, no help in finding another place to eat!

The food is always good and the steaks were cooked perfectly. The asparagus was awesome and we ordered all the deserts which each one of them is good for 2 people
The kids love the rigatoni and the burgers.
The service has never been bad for us.
We will be back

If you are looking for an elegant place for a special evening, the staff at The Belvedere Room will make your experience wonderful. I was somewhat disappointed in the food, but I suspect it has to do with the menu. As a person who loves flavor, I found the food rather bland. Everything sounds fancier than it is. "Yukon fingerlings" basically means French fries. I ordered the roasted herb chicken and my husband ordered the NY strip. The meats were both seasoned well, but the glazes for both were just ok. The little potatoes and bacon that was also presented on my dish was cooked so much that it had almost zero moisture, in other words they were all just little crunchy bits that ended up just tasting like grease. The entrees do not always come with sides, you have to order all the sides a la carte. I did not realize that, so my plate was just the meat, and that's it. My husband ordered a special salad with watermelon, onions, and pepper that he loved. I thought it was an interesting combo with the watermelon and pepper, but not something I would choose for myself. My husband loved my chicken also, and I preferred the steak so we ended up switching plates halfway through the meal. Maybe we should have ordered something more exotic, but neither of us are big on fish and the other choices were a pork dish or a bison dish that they were out of. I guess for me, I have had so many international dishes that this type of menu for me is just lacking in spices and flavors and I learned that "Fancy" does not always equal better quality. Overall we enjoyed a leisurely 2 hour meal. Our waiter was phenomenal. The food was good, but the experience and ambience was really why the cost makes it valuable. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a nice meal, overall.

Excellent food! We had the Miso Glazed Pork Belly, Arugula and beet salad (we split the salad as it was too big for one), I had the Scallops and Ric had Salmon. Best scallops I've ever eaten! Service was excellent. Attentive without being intrusive to our conversation. It was Tuesday, so very quiet compared with a weekend evening.

Service and the sides were the stars of the night. Salmon was described as "too fishy", Steak was a tad overcooked but it was fine overall. Personally, being 100+ miles from the ocean, I wouldn't order fish in Bakersfield. The butter that arrived with the bread was a hit. Server was on point tending to the 2 bottles of wine that we brought.

This was our first dinner at the Belvedere and we will definitely return. We had a nice bottle of sparkling and the staff provided a table side ice bucket. The service was spot-on and friendly. We shared the fritto misto soft shell crab appetizer. It was a little large for two, so next time I’d order it only if we have another couple to share it. The hub had the filet mignon and mushroom on the side, both cooked to perfection. I had the scallops on risotto, which was also super delicious. I purposely saved room to try the limoncello creme brûlée, which was wonderful. This is a great restaurant for a special night out!

The steak I received was mediocre at best, wasn't seasoned well. The sides were all bland in my opinion.

The music was a little loud for the type of restaurant, it was difficult to hear anyone speaking at the table.

The waiter was very nice and did a great job though so the service is on point. Just not worth the $200+ tab.

Took grandkids shark tooth hunting and had to stay overnight in Bakersfield. Had visited Prairie Fire once before when staying at the hotel and really enjoyed it. Everyone loved dinner as well as the live music which we hadn’t expected this time around. The waiting staff all wore masks and were very helpful.

The check had the traditional room service charge and the waitress made it clear that it wasn’t gratuity. So you end up paying taxes- a service charge and tips which is almost 40% of the check - it diminishes value greatly

The food and drink selection was awful. Our server was great and he did his best considering the lack of the availability of wines on their list. The appetizer we ordered was pretzels, which we have had before, were stale.
