    Definitely get the queso or guac! Or both! I really like that you can order whatever tacos you want and not three of the same one for example. My favorite tacos are the fish, al pastor, and chicken diablo. Food has always come out fast and hot. The margs and sangria are excellent too and always have a hard time deciding which one I want. Service was quick, attentive, and personal. I love coming here!

    Unfortunately, a rare miss for Bakersfield this time, as the drinks were oddly not quite up to standard. We each ordered a margarita (one regular and one with mezcal). Normally the tequila or mezcal would shine through, but this time the taste was only of the mix. In fact, we could not even taste the difference between the two margaritas. Maybe the order of limes they used for the mix this day were a bit off (extra sour) and messed up the balance? I still like the place... outdoor seating is nice, and the food is always tasty. I expect this was a one off.

    We had another great date at Bakersfield. We adored the queso. I chose a Premium Margarita and loved the Valencia orange salt on the rim. The regular sized salad is too large for me to eat in one sitting, so I’ll just get a side next time.

    We were looking for good Mexican food in Cincinnati for a date night and Bakersfield did not disappoint! My husband and I both rated it a 10/10 (which almost NEVER happens!) The tacos were delicious and our food came out so fast. We started with loaded queso, then shared the roasted corn side and each tried different tacos. We can’t wait to come back and try the margaritas! We’ll definitely be back. Service was incredible, staff was extremely friendly. Loved the atmosphere! This is on the top of our list for dinner spots in Cincinnati!

Got to the restaurant around 10:25 and the host was super understanding and accommodating.

    The chips and queso were very tasty and the guacamole was delicious. Tacos were flavorful and a good variety of meats, fish and slice levels. The size of the tables made sharing dishes somewhat difficult but our server helped us move things around so we could access the appetizers better. We opted for the homemade lemonade and both of us had a second glass. The lighting could be better, but like the overall vibe. Will definitely dine there again.

    I had the poached shrimp and avocado appetizer only because I seen it on Facebook; the server didn’t say anything about it. It didn’t look anything like the picture on Facebook and it really wasn’t all that good! Our service was just fair and it’s always top-notch. Our server was training another server and I’m sure that takes them away from some of the details but my drink was very slow to come to the table and we just didn’t feel like they were as attentive as they usually are. The restaurant wasn’t overly busy so I’m not sure what happened!

    We had a great evening at Bakersfield. We were given our choice of air conditioning or the rooftop patio, and we chose to eat inside. The waiter was friendly and attentive. We each got a Bakersfield Margarita and shared an order of Queso. We loved the queso. There were no other diners around us, so we could enjoy each other’s company. We each ordered a few tacos. My favorite was the pollo verde taco and my boyfriend’s favorite was the short rib taco. We plan to return!

    The food and cocktails were AMAZING, and the rooftop bar was absolutely adorable:) I wouldn’t recommend sitting at a high top table if you are getting more than drinks and an appetizer though, it was a bit tiny and pretty challenging to fit the actual meals with the drinks and waters.
