    Great experience overall. Greeted and seated promptly. Able to sit outside which was important given rising Covid rates in our area. Server was terrific. Noise level made it a little bit difficult to converse, but not impossible.

    Only thing that I would have liked more is a larger table. The tables are very small and very close to each other. This makes it loud and hard to talk with your guests.

    I have frequented Bakersfield a number of times and was really looking forward to going last night. The noise level was absolutely unbearable (I think because of the concrete floors), and the women's bathroom looked like a bar fight had gone on in there. The toilet seat in the handicapped stall was ripped off and laying against the wall. The stall that I finally used, was disgusting. It's clear that no one is monitoring it's cleanliness. I ordered the fish tacos and they were very dry. I was very disappointed in my meal and the restaurant. It was truly unfortunate, because I really like Bakersfield.

    Quality has gone downhill. Chips tasted stale, not house made as in the past. Guacamole was flavorless. Salad greens not fresh as in past. Server put our bill in the middle of our food, vs on the table.

    We always enjoy Bakersfield. This time the elote was not hot, as it normally has been. It was still severed in a cast iron pan, but both the elote and pan were cold as a refrigerator which took away from the taste. It made us sad, but we still ate it all 😂. Love the open windows, but it does increase the noise considerably.

    Bakersfield was ok. It’s good for a good night out. We just wished that the tacos had a lot more flavor. We like the options we wanted to really be able to enjoy and taste it. The brisket queso was amazing though. Very flavorful! If we can get the rest of the food up to that level, we would definitely be back to this place.

    Always good food and great location. Service could be a 5 but the place tends to be hectic which often is a distraction for a server. You may have to remind them to bring things like plastic ware, water, etc. Again due to the noise and activity you can understand why some things may slip through the cracks.
