We were staying at the Padre Hotel and offered a 20% discount on dinner as hotel guests so of course we decided to try it. There are not many good dining options in downtown Bakersfield. This was a lovely experience - the room itself is...More

The Belvedere at the Padre is best of Bakersfield’s fine dining restaurants. Service is attentive, menu is creative, food quality and taste unmatched in this city. The Belvedere is worth the visit for a special occasion or a quiet meal with friends.
