Padre Hotel's Belvedere Room in Bakersfield?

I may be staying in Bakersfield in April, and the Padre Hotel looks interesting - anybody out there know anything about their restaurant? We will only be in town one night and looking for an excellent dinner and breakfast - any suggestions?

  1. I stayed at the padre several times last year on business. A very charming, modern cool hotel. Didn't eat at the restaurant, however, because my client had other places to show me. Bakersfield, most interestingly, has a rich, traditional Portuguese dining legacy, with several great family style restaurants. Might not be what you are looking for, though.

      I had heard about the Basque places, but not Portuguese... interesting. I have driven through dozens of times but never explored the city, and it sounds like this is going to be a worthwhile stop.
