Best steak in the world

I have loved this place since I first visited sit and keep coming back!!! Set in an old bank, the vault is now the wine cellar. It consists of two levels, upstairs is white cloth and more formal, and downstairs is more casual but just as classy. I prefer downstairs at a high table, however you can... read more

This is the second time I have had a small Christmas party for my staff at Byrd & Baldwin's. The same as last year the staff was very attentive to our needs. From recommending the perfect wine in our price range to describing the entrees the staff was on point. The restaurants atmosphere has the high end classic feel. The... More

Have been a few times lately. Great drinks and the food is delicious - especially if you like beef. A bit pricey but well worth it. The service has been excellent. The atmosphere in the cellar bar is cozy and a good place to meet friends. It's a gem in the downtown area.

We were looking forward to dining at Byrd & Baldwin Brothers Steakhouse for my birthday dinner and were sorely disappointed.

Ken, I'm so sorry we ruined your birthday dinner . I wish you would have asked for a manager since he would have handled the entire situation. Waiters would rather sell wine by the glass they actually make more money. We offer the same level of service to every customer. I some what agree that the filets can look lonely... More

This is a great choice for a Sunday dinner. The filet could have been cut with a fork, and was quite flavorful. The asparagus was perfectly steamed and seasoned. The combination menu, a set price on the weekends, knocked about 20% off the bill for the two - pricey but well worth it. Service was excellent; two staff were constantly... More

Walking into the restaurant I was quite excited, having frequented many NYC steakhouses, I really felt this place had the vibe down. The service was pretty good, a little obtrusive, but good. We were at dinner with 2 other couples. We shared 1 bottle of wine and a few cocktails were had by a few of us. The salads were... More

There is nothing worse then being at a nice restaurant and being treated like a second class citizen. SIX times I was told "We are sorry but we have a large party in the back."

As a USMC couple, we don't get to spend many anniversaries together. This year, we were together and our dinner here was fabulous! Wonderful seating, awesome service, fantastic food started the evening. The wine cellar tour and dessert made the evening perfect. For a memorable anniversary dinner or any special occasion, I highly recommend Byrd & Baldwin!
