“Still trying to get it right”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014 via mobile

There Saturday night. Full crowd. Party of 6, 3 entrees out first, 10 minutes later one more (and it was a salad), 5 minutes later part of the 5th (soup), and a couple minutes after that the 6th entree and the balance of #5...not giving up but this is two strikes; three and they are out. It's a shame, they have a neat concept, awkward physical configuration must be challenging but they've had time to figure it out.

“Peeeee...ricy.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Had my first experience on NYE. Oddly, had a pedicure earlier earlier in the day next to a lovely woman who knew the owners and was expecting THEIR daughter at her home that night. After much discussion, I had pretty big expectations. Not disappointed. Food was outstanding. While a Prix Fixe menu, we ordered poached salmon and the short ribs as entree's and each was utterly mouth watering. The Venue was spectacular. The only jerky jerky about the night was the slew of 20 something wait staff who brought the salad before the shrimp cocktail and brought one glass of wine when we ordered a bottle but overall, a spectacular evening with a great band. We were ready for the $125 pp excl. liquor but the $498.00 price tag at the end was a bit of a surprise!

“Great place to have fun.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

This is a great place for Happy hour, dinner and all around just a good time. Food was really good, and the atmosphere as fantastic. I would recommend to anyone travelling for a nice night out in what is normally a pretty boring town for night life.

“Fun night out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

Wanted to take my wife and family out for her birthday dinner and a show. Decided to try Bake's place. Good food, excellent ambiance, and the show was what we were looking for. Patricia Lee and her band were lively, tight and very entertaining. We enjoyed the evening and would come back. The owner greeted us at our table, nice touch.

“Good food along with good live music!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Nice place, adequate parking and live music. What's not to like? The food is adventurous but nice. I enjoyed a glass of wine and Pearl Django along with a salad which was definitely not ordinary!
