I'm going to visit Byrd & Baldwin before this week is out. I can always expect excellent service, food, and atmosphere. Steak, lamb chops... I have never been disappointed. This will always be one of my favorite restaurants in downtown Norfolk. Mmmmm.... yummy!!!!

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.

Best steak and service in town,not just Norfolk. Would compare to Georgetown or New York type steak house in both taste and decor.

My husband took me and another couple to Byrd & Baldwin Brothers for my birthday this year. It really is the best steakhouse in Norfolk. I rarely order steak out since I can make this at home but this is one place I always get the filet. The sides are big enough to share, we had spinach and mac &... More

This is by far one of the finest restaurants in the area. The service is impeccable and the food exceptional. We were dining on a gift card on this visit. We had taken a couple of people here before and they reciprocated with the card. My wife and I shared an iceberg lettuce wedge that was loaded with Maytag Blue... More

This is the best steakhouse in Norfolk! My fiance and I started with soup (tomato and she crab) followed by two different steaks (both delicious) and we finished with a lovely key lime pie. We were both impressed. Our server, John W, provided impeccable service. He was wonderful! Everyone in Norfolk should eat at Byrd and Baldwin Bro Steakhouse at... More

We had wedge salad, shrimp cocktail, prime beef tartare, Maryland crab cakes and pan seared Ahi tuna. It was perfect. The chocolate sin cake is truly devine. Our waiter, David was the best!
