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.

This is a favorite restaurant and they have seating both upstairs (white table cloth service-elegant and impressive) and downstairs (intimate and less formal) The high top tables downstairs allow for really nice conversation and access to Byrd's world class menu. We regularly dine in the lower level if we are just looking for something satisfying and not quite a full... More

This was the first time we have been here and everything was excellent. Had the fillet mignon and lobster tail with a cocktail. We also tried the crab appetizer and French onion soup. Chris' service was excellent as well. Chris and the restaurant were well organized and even organized a small birthday celebration for me.

One of my favorite places for steak. The accompanying menu is generally outstanding as well. I'm not much of a wine drinker, but they do have an extensive list. The beer menu is pretty slim, they're not trying to compete with any craft breweries or places with lots of taps. Still, the selections were OK at best. The desert menu... More

Byrd & Baldwin is not only known for their aged-on-site purest Black Angus beef and excellent cuisine, but for lovely decor, romantic surroundings, and the best service in Norfolk. Last evening was no exception. I tried the stuffed zucchini and would not hesitate to recommend it...simply delicious! The four of us dining were very pleased with our selections, and the... More

Small place. Nice decor. Not well staffed. No free parking, so i used valet which wouldn't be an issue except they only had 1 guy working valet, so there was a line of 4-5 people coming and leaving (horrible first and last impression). Food was barely average.

Kouponlady, I am sorry to see that you did not enjoy your visit to Byrd and Baldwin. I can assure you that this is not the usual response that we get from our guests. Parking in Downtown Norfolk is not easy to come by which is why we give our guests the option of Valet parking. I would love to... More
