Byrd and Baldwin is the premier Steak house in Hampton Roads, but it has a much more diverse menu than just steaks. For my son's 25th birthday we brought a group together to celebrate. The appetizer choices always catches my fancy. This night we enjoyed their Lump Backfin crab cocktail..oh my, procuitto wrapped mozzarelo and their tomato beet salad. The... More

The entire experience was just what we expected. John (who's name is really Chris) gave us perfect recommendations. Wine recommendations were spot on. The steaks were as good as we expected. Order the creamed spinach as a side. The mac and cheese were good also. Order coffee dessert and cognac to end a perfect night.

This is a very nice restaurant with food that does not quite live up to the expectation and very high prices. The Caesar salad was dry and the dressing seemed to be missing anchovy so that it was a very incomplete taste. Salmon was decent and well cooked (medium rare) but the marmalade was too bitter and risotto was cold... More

Basement bar area feels like a Speakeasy with impressive view of wine cellar. Bar turn over keeps an energetic feel but not overrun or noisy. (40 something perspective) Definite Date Night, special event type of place or an after work meet up. Brought my husband for first time experience, and he was impressed. We will be back for great ribeye... More

This restaurant was recommended by my boss as the Number 1 best Steakhouse in Virginia, and he was 100% correct! I ordered the 6 oz filet, and my husband got the veal chop - both were cooked to perfection and to our exact temperature requests. The manager found out we were celebrating my birthday and sent a complimentary chocolate dessert... More

Been to this restaurant several times and after tonight will never return. I called at 3:30 to make a reservation for 7 pm. Went to voice mail. Received a call back and was told we could have a reservation for either 645 or 7:15pm. We arrived at 6:50 and proceeded to the bar. Approached hostess at 7 pm and told... More

My brother, sister in law and son decided to sit in their bar which is downstairs for some drinks and apps. Bartender was very friendly and atmosphere was nice. We had a martini which was very good as well as some escargot, prosciutto wrapped Parmesan (awesome!) and steak tartare (huge portion). All were excellent! We will be back.

I've lived in Virginia Beach since 1985 and first time ever to the steakhouse. I was not impressed. Read the reviews and expected so much more. Service was sub-par and at times rude. I ordered the ribeye and was truly surprised to call it that. Poor cut, overcooked (asked for med, got med/well), no flavor, no char. Wife's filet was... More

We ate there for a small family function. The food was great. Fantastic service, and nice ambience. I had the ribeye which was perfectly cooked medium rare. It is expensive, so I would only return for special occasions.
