There were 8 of us and our waitress never missed a beat! The specials were excellent, our choices were superb and the desserts were devoured! I recommend a reservation on the weekends. Fun to sit and eat at the table by the kitchen because you can watch them prepare the food and watch whatever local sports event is on TV.

Service was slow and the food was Ok with no garnishes on the plate and expensive with one side served with an entree. There are so many better choices in the area. A new building with a cold atmosphere.

Not what I was going for! Had heard about this place and thought i'd give it a try. The atmosphere is like a coffee shop - except with an open kitchen. The menu was interesting - but again - seemed inconsistent with the vibe of the place itself. And paying $135 for two people for dinner at an "upscale Denny's"... More

An excellent and sophisticated chop house in the western suburbs. Swank decor, excellent bar, top drawer service and heavenly smoked chops and sea food. The wood ovens and excellent kitchen staff add a delicious dimension to many familiar dishes without overwhelming the natural flavors. This is not a bar b que, it's a smoke house. There is a difference that... More

Beautiful restaurant and excellent service. The food was delicious with large portions. The plating was excellent and the sandwiches, soup and salad that our party enjoyed for lunch was delicious and flavorful

I took my mother to Bakersfield for an early dinner, and it was delightful from beginning to end. We both ordered a cup of the soup of the day that happened to be broccoli/cheddar. It was served piping hot and was exquisite. My mother ordered Shrimp Louis and I ordered the Four Farmers Salad. Her Shrimp Louis looked fantastic, but... More

Just had lunch here with 3 friends- each of us had a delicious meal. A bit pricey for some of the selections- however the quality was there. A simple cheese burger was not so simple- an excellent egg bun with the toppings piled high and a delicious piece of beef cooked as requested. My wife had the lobster knuckle sandwich... More

I have dined here about five times, and unfortunately, have been underwhelmed all five times. The service is absolutely horrible. I had two special family occasions there, and both times the service was perhaps the worst I have ever experienced. We sat down with ten people and waited 30 minutes for a server and water to come. The second time... More

Ya know...telling diners that the restaurant is the sister of the grocery store across the street is a two edged swordfish. The grocery store has its own two restaurants. One is pretty good. So does Bakersfield get the third best leftovers OR does Bakersfield show the two other kitchens how to do a stellar job. They don't tell us that... More
