For the last couple of years we have taken to celebrating Valentine's Day with lunch at the Omega - not wanting to risk the often frenetic and slapdash lovey-dovey dinners in local restaurants. As always, we were impressed by the skill and service on display: Baldwin's, with the eponymous David at the helm, and head chef Stephen Rosebuck in the kitchen, runs like clockwork. Breads - the loaves are baked in the kitchen and left for you to cut on the table, then wrapped up to take home - were excellent. My roast beef, served pink and carved at the table, was exquisite. My wife's roast cod with scallops was well-judged and tasty. Dessert, a lovely rice pudding oddly served barely warm and a St Clement's pudding, was good. Really, this place is an object lesson in how to serve good food to many people really well. With functions getting fewer due to the economic squeeze they now do a bistro evening on the second Wednesday of the month.

Been to many parties at Baldwin's Omega and every one has been great! Fab service, all the food is served hot and no request is too big for the staff. The food is amazing! They have very talented chefs! I have also been to the restaurant at lunch time a couple of times and again, the service and quality of food is amazing. Everybody is so friendly there and I would recommend it to any one wanted to book a party or just have spot of lunch.

Nearly 100 restaurants rated higher than Baldwins - you must be joking!

Baldwins has been the best formal restaurant in Sheffield for the last 30 years, I've probably visited an average of once each month and the consistency of the product is outstanding. The public restaurant is unusual in that it only opens at lunchtime Monday to Friday, evenings are given over to function dining, also excellent.

If you want lunch in Sheffield you must go to Baldwins, the food quality, service and ambience are first rate, and if you eat off the set menu it's also the best value in town.

Baldwin's Omega is possibly the best place for a large party in Sheffield. They seem to be able to serve the food quickly and keep it hot.

Our second Burns Night and there is nothing to fault as always. The wine was lovely, food was delicious - Baldwins' beef is the best I've ever had! The waiting staff are brilliant and will go out of their way for any request. Their theme nights are always a good laugh but Burns Night really tops them all, we were greeted with a Scottish cocktail on arrival, a toast to the haggis, bagpipes (a little too much bagpipes but after all it was burns night), scottish band and a ceilidh after dinner and a normal disco at the end of the night. Once again Baldwin's delivered and I can't wait to go back!!
