What seems to be a fine dining restaurant doesn't really measure up to the price. The décor and setting is excellent. Nothing could improve that. The food was so-so and not a very good value at all. Service was somewhat disjointed. Perhaps we just hit it on an off night.

We had dinner at Byrd & Baldwin with friends after a business meeting. It is a very upscale and elegant restaurant, but the staff was warm and friendly. The wine menu was quite impressive and yet not pricey. The entrée menu had a mix of chop house fare, and seafood. I had the buffalo NY strip and it was wonderful.... More

My husband and I never get to go out and after a recommendation from Henry at the Marriott, we took a stroll over here last night. The service was great, the portions are large and the wine was delicious. We will definitely be back.

We were a party of four and put at a huge table for six plus. It was ackward and uncomfortable to talk across the table. There were PLENTY of tables for four available both when whe arrived and left.

I loved this place! It was so delish! I had the melt in your mouth filet. The oysters rockefeller were very good too. If it wasn't so expensive I would love to go back more often. It was perfect for a special occasion.

i had seen great reviews, and decided to try to get in for dinner. The place was crowded with large group, but the lovely hostess found me a seat at the bar, where regulars greeted each other.

I dined at this resturant a couple years ago and have never forgotten my experience. The place has an excellent reputation among locals so I had high expectations. We all ordered steaks, ribeyes.

Great steak, beautiful interior, wonderful service. Our reservations were for 5:00 pm and once we found someone to seat us the dining was delicious. Our table was right by the kitchen and that was ok but would have been better if the kitchen was not in sight. Maybe a door could be added. Other than that minor detail, our experience... More
