The Belvedere Room at The Padre Hotel Ratings and Reviews
The food? CRIMINAL. One of the best steaks I have ever had. The atmosphere and the style were perfection. Truly, we'd be back over and over if we lived in the area. Sadly, we were just passing through and took the chance based on a very reliable word-of-mouth recommendation. Grateful that we committed to THE PADRE VIBE. Bravo to all. Marvelous culinary adventure.
Very nice place with a great atmosphere. The historic elements are represented nicely but the restaurant has a wonderful mix between old and new. The service staff are very accommodating, but need some more training on 5 star table service. Expected us to move our own plates when a 5 star takes care of the table maze. The wine list was good but limited and pricey. I had a Grand Cru Bordeaux from St Emilion so take that into consideration. I gave less than five stars because they were out of Filet on Mother's Day. And that is my Mother's favorite. Blasphemy! Other than that one of the better upscale places to dine in Bakersfield. I would visit again and recommend to others.
I am not sure where to start with my experience here. We arrived at 130pm which was our exact "Mother's Day "reservation time. The hostess then asked us to wait at the bar area as they had not prepared our table since we were a large group (9 people). 35minutes later we noticed the manager walk by us and informed him that we had been there for that long waiting to be seated. He then sent another gentleman who aggressively came to us and stated "sorry but we are not going to be able to accommodate you because we have to flip the tables for dinner". Long story short after expressing our displeasure in how we were being unfairly treated, the manager came back and let us know that we would be seated "in 5 minutes" which surprisingly happened. Needless to say we got an overly enthusiastic waiter (obviously over compensating) but he was nice. Manager then came after our meal and while he thought this was a good gesture offered us a "small discount for the trouble". It was insulting- I would much rather pay full price for a more pleasant experience. Please do better!
We had reservations, but didn't actually eat in the Belvadere - we were seated in Brimstone Bar. Didn't realize only option was the buffet for $40/plate. Not sure there's a buffet anywhere worth that price. Would have preferred a nice steak off the menu. Won't go for Mother's Day again, but will go back.
Excellent menu and value for great food although some may find it pricey. Food was absolutely delish, side dishes were
plentiful and enough for two people as was the cesar salad. Staff was very attentive but did seem distracted at times. Would most definitely go there again.
Was traveling through the Bakersfield area and spent the night at the Padre Hotel. The Belvedere Room had an excellent menu and was surprisingly creative for a hotel venue. Especially nice vegetable side dishes. More than just a typical steakhouse. Service was also very attentive.
I took my daughter for a celebratory "fancy date" and the staff was absolutely incredible and the manager josh was extremely attentive and made our visit very memorable for my 8 year old daughter! She has always wanted to go there and josh and the staff made it more exciting and memorable than I could've imagined. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you do! I love the padre and all the people that help to make it the place that it is. Any restaurant is just a restaurant but with the right staff it makes it so much more!!! Thank you!!
The 4 of us had an outstanding time for New Years Eve dinner. We were looking forward to attending the out door event with the soul people at prairie fire lounge we bought tickets at $20 per person for 2 just after thanksgiving for the event however our tickets were never taken and (moved because of rain to a small bar) they just allowed everyone too come in and they never paid for the show and just because it rained is no excuse to allow everyone to come in. So it was very crowded and we were unable to get any drinks. Our dinner reservation was for 8:00 pm and with 7 courses our meal wasn't completed and we left the belvedere room at 11:00 pm we ended up leaving at 12:30 am.
Our dinner on Christmas Day was outstanding! A small error on my plate was corrected without my having to say anything. The pork loin was the best I have eaten. My only nutral comments would be : the baked potato was underdone and I felt the decor /atmosphere could have been better considering the price point. Otherwise, superb dinner.
My wife and I had the beef tenderloin (filet) with truffle butter with the Brussels sprouts as a side. The filet was not as good as previous times I had eaten there and neither were the Brussels sprouts. We waited probably 20 minutes or more for the server to take our order. She was apologetic and gave us a free dessert but for the price I would prefer to go to Valetins or Cafe Med for Christmas Eve dinner from now on.
This meal was a special treat. One of the best ribeye steaks I have ever eaten, cooked and seasoned perfectly. Nice ambience and the noise level was reasonable even though the room was packed, which enabled us to enjoy our conversation. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable, and Nick, the manager, came by our table and personally checked on our meal and service. Not inexpensive, but we knew before coming that this was at the high end of Bakersfield dining. Highly recommended for a quality dining experience.
I was disappointed in the quality of the food. My $36 steak had no flavor and was pretty fatty. I could do better on my back yard grill. My wife and I were celebrating our 40th anniversary and I thought this would be something special. I was sorely mistaken. For the price, it is certainly not worth the value.
We are new to Bakersfield and were excited to be eating at The Belvedere Room because we had heard it was the best and fanciest restaurant in town. We went there for Thanksgiving dinner. It was a buffet. Most of the food was cold. The selections were not labeled and limited. We waited quite a long time before we were asked what we wanted to drink and then it took too much time to receive our drinks. When we got up from the table to get our desserts the table was cleared including the coffee that was just brought to us. Our coats were still at the table which should have been a clue that we hadn't finished yet. The manager was very apologetic and gave us a $50 voucher to use towards the meal. However, it took another 15 or 20 minutes to get fresh coffee to have with our dessert. We won't be returning.
My boyfriend and I went to celebrate our anniverary on a Sunday night at the
Belvedere Room. We shared the porterhouse and it was HUGE. The meat was pre cut which was nice since it is so large. We also got the gorgonzola truffle mashed potatoes and they were TO DIE FOR. Literally. Great staff. Great ambiance. Great food and an exceptional wine and drink list. They even gave us a complimentary dessert for our anniversary. Definitely worth the money. I would absolutely go back any time.
Delicious appetizers, although they ran out of their specials for the evening by 7. Enjoyed the beef, fish, and lobster entrees. Lobster bisque okay! Bread served seemed to be rather dry. Butter roses a nice touch though. Go for yourself and see what you think.
Beautiful restaurant and elegant setting. Server was very friendly and informed us about the menu items. Recommended the special of short ribs served over polenta with mushrooms and a rich sauce. It was disappointing. Ribs were over cooked and dry The polenta covered the plate and was soupy. All the entrees were served on warm plates with warm food. Salads were also served on warm plates!
One desert of cake and macaroons was just not very good. Server sort of agreed but it was still on the bill. Saving grace is the environment and reasonably priced, good wine list.
