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. When the steaks came, one of our diners steak did not resemble a ribeye at all. It looked more ike a strip steak. When he pointed it... More

Kaye , I'm sorry for your experience . Can you give me an approximate date this occurred ? Ribeye's can resemble strips occassionally depending on how we cut. But I find it hard to believe a waiter would argue about it. Our staff is to professional for that. I certainly hope you will reach out to me so i can... More

Went there on 2/13/14 for a VD gift - was severely disappointed in the preparation of my beef entrée. To begin with, I ordered a NY Strip, however I was served a rib eye , obviously cooked on a flattop grill, very greasy, tough & finished w/ too much butter, no seasoning added whatever - the texture and the flavor...

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

Very good steak house that is just a notch below some of the best in the country. My favorite part of this restaurant is the down stairs bar. Bartender was friendly and knowledgeable about his wines. Didn't try to upsell like many at high end restaurants. While the food was very good it wasn't as memorable at other Chop House... More

Enjoyed a business dinner here last week. The menu and wine list are outstanding and the food was superb. Our waiter was very attentive and did a great job.

B&B is supposed to be the best steakhouse in the Hampton Roads area. We were terribly disappointed. The filet mignon was tender but had no taste. And the waiter was unfamiliar with the wine we ordered and even admitted he'd never been to Sonoma when we asked whether we should visit Sonoma or Napa. And we had to flag down... More

Byrd & Baldwin is not one of the best steakhouses in Hampton Roads. It is the BEST steakhouse in Hampton Roads. After reading your review several times, I'm wondering if you ever really visited us.

Excellent filet and mushroom side. Very comfortable atmosphere in the bar area. Low lit, lost of high tops and plenty of seats at the bar. Just a few pet peeves. I don't like my empty bar glasses to sit in front of me at the bar particularly when I have moved on to something else. The sides are large and... More
