Ardeo + Bardeo
Mother's Day BrunchWent to Ardeo + Bardeo for Mother's day and was more than pleased by the quality of the food. The chicken-fried steak was outstanding. Loved the ambiance, and the staff was quite friendly. Can't wait to go back and sample the regular menu.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Brunch in the CityArdeo+Bardeo is the best brunch place in DC. And I say that after trying many others and working down a list of best brunch spots. The food is excellent, the service is always great, and the price is reasonable.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disapointsWhenever I come here for dinner I am never disapointed.

A definite recommendation!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing ExperienceArdeo + Bardeo was a last minute choice for a birthday brunch and ended up being one of the best restaurants I've eaten at in DC. Between the brussel sprouts which were notably incredible and the shrimp lemon risotto, the meal was delicious from start to finish. Great service from Tonia in addition to the great ambiance and food means that I will be back! Can't wait to try the Sunday dinner deal!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite place to eat inMy favorite place to eat in Cleveland Park! The food was delicious and the service top notch and very nice as always.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNice evening outWent with my fiance and parents, and we really enjoyed it. Lively, but not bar-level loud. Our favorites dishes were the crispy brussel sprouts and the mushroom pizza.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMfine dining in relaxing environmentA little tricky for vegetarians, but we found some things the family vegetarians could eat and LOVED them. The creative salads pasta were delicious. The carnivore was thrilled with his selection and we all enjoyed a great dessert. Upbeat service in a casually elegant atmosphere.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways enjoy a meal with friendsAlways enjoy a meal with friends at Ardeo + Bardeo.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAlthough a bit on the noisyAlthough a bit on the noisy side (we had difficulty hearing our servers explain menu items), the entire staff was friendly and professional...and very attentive. The food was delicious...we enjoyed the diversity of the menu. Parking was a problem as the valet lot was apparently full. We were directed to the end of the street to a lot, which was also full. We had to wait there for an opening as we were already inside the lot, which made us late for our reservation. So allow enough time for parking issues. Overall, very enjoyable and would highly recommend.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. An interesting,Great food. An interesting, but not pretentious menu with excellent variety and intriguing choices. Good service, although the initial snack that we ordered apparently got lost and only arrived with the entree. On a Saturday night, it was very lively with a lot of noise downstairs. We were glad to be given a table upstairs, where we could actually have a conversation. Reservations highly recommended. Not a cheap night out but excellent choice for almost any occasion.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent, as usual. Our server,Excellent, as usual. Our server, Denise, was fantastic-- very nice and very interesting. --- Fred Woodworth4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the food, service, everythingLoved the food, service, everything!

The food is eclectic, but always wonderful. This time we had an asparagus soup with goat cheese and praline that was exquisite. The secret is to get the small plates and the various appetizers (flatbread) so that you can try different things. No one I have gone with has ever left less than enthused by the food and the service.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are repeat diners at ArdeoWe are repeat diners at Ardeo and it is consistently very good. We find it to be a good value and the service is always exceptional. Plus you can get a reservation less than two weeks in advance. Will keep going back for more.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMUpscale dining, reasonable priceWe thoroughly enjoyed dinner at A+B. having been to other Cleveland park restaurants, this was one of the best dining experiences we have enjoyed. We arrived slightly late and there was no issue, and we were seated promptly. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable, and have out party great recommendations. The food was incredible-the purple haze cheese, burrata eggplant Parmesan, and Parmesan cheese fries were an excellent start to the meal--we licked the plates (literally!). Then for dinner we enjoye two of the pastas--the asparagus fettuccini and the pork cacciatore were both phenomenal. We also appreciated that several members of the team came to ask us about our experience-Thank you for a wonderful evening, we can't wait to come back!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the tripArdeo+Bardeo continues to be one of the gems of D.C. The eclectic menu offers incredibly tasteful options for all diners and plays well with delightful combinations of scents, flavorings, and ingredients.

Food was masterfully prepared, with fun gourmet flares to comfort foods (I would recommend the suckling pork leg with blackeyed peas and grits as well as the brussels sprouts).3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe eat here regularly, evenWe eat here regularly, even though we don't live in the neighborhood, because the food is always very good and the service (Kat, today) is always friendly and efficient.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGlad we came, at least once.As one of Washingtonian's Top 100 places to eat, we were wanting to dine here in our goal of checking off as many as possible from the list. After reading the reviews from Tom and others, we had high expectations. For the most part, we were very satisfied, although it may not have been as amazing as everyone has claimed.
The ambiance was wonderful, we were greeted warmly, we were seated at a great table by the bar, and was allowed to take advantage of the happy hour drink menu. Our waiter was VERY informative and quite good at his job. Making recommendations and bringing our drinks promptly. Our water glasses were never below 50% empty, and the menu was appealing.
We all enjoyed our food (all four of us), though not blown away.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMTry the Egg 63!Fantastic!

Staff was very accommodating for our big group of 14!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent brunchThe BLT on the brunch menu is delicious. It has a fried egg with tomato relish on it and comes with potatoes. You will not regret ordering it. It is the best embellished BLT I have come across - perfect mix of flavors. The latte was good, nothing to rave about. The steak bites come with four small potato chunks topped with a tender and rare slice of steak. They were pretty good, but I thought they looked better than they tasted. All in all I was very satisfied with the meal. Great service. My friend ordered the mushroom fettuccine and loved it. The brunch came with a top notch bread basket.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMReally interesting menu -Really interesting menu - especially the small bites. I think this would be a good place for groups looking to nibble over cocktails/wine.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMSolid pick, not the best, but good.Really nice restaurant. Not the very best in DC, but still a solid restaurant. For the prices they have, there are better places.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server, I believe herOur server, I believe her name was Tonia, was super in every respect. Her suggestion for a wine pairing with choice of entree was excellent. She was attentive, offered appropriate suggestions and was able to give us the history we requested.
I had requested a table in a more quiet area and this was accommodated beautifully. The manager and hostess were both aware of this special request and the reason for it.
Bravo all around. And yes, the dinner was delicious.
MFT3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAlthough I yearn for the ArdeoAlthough I yearn for the Ardeo of old (quiet, cloth-topped tables, soft-spoken wait staff and no hard surfaces to cause the din that is now a part of the "ambiance"), the food, wine and service were excellent. Our party dined on a pork special, the chicken and veggies, salmon and cod. The wait staff split appetizers for the table and the wine stewart provided the table with excellent recommendations. The shared desserts were excellent. We will keep Ardeo on our list of favorite places in the District.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMLove It!This place is simply amazing. All 11 of my friends had no complaints on their food. The service was excellent. We attended brunch on the top floor and they were nice enough to let us continue drinking on their patio. It was a perfect DC day and I look forward to coming back to your restaurant.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant! Have recommendedGreat restaurant! Have recommended it to many people after just eating there over the weekend. Service was outstanding. I highly recommend this restaurant for any night out.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were very pleasantly surprisedWe were very pleasantly surprised with the exceptional quality of the food...the spinach salad ranks up there with the best salads we have had and every dish of every course was delicious. We will be back.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGood service and good foodWe dined on a Thursday. The service was great. Our server was professional, articulate, informed about the menu and she was able to offer recommendations that turned out to be extremely helpful as well as tasty. The manger stopped over and was quite solicitous. The food was very good, arrived quickly, at the right temperature and was nicely presented on the plates. We had a pasta dish, that was quite good, a salad and a calamari and shimpt dish. The first four were delicious. The calamari was reasonably done, but not on the same level as the other dishes and not on the same level as the our two deserts; a great chocolate tart and different and very tasty cheescake.
We enjoyed it so much that we went back on Saturday as walk-ins.3/7/2013 12:00:00 AMPizza and Burgers, OUTSTANDINGMet a lrage group and the service was outstanding as always. great drinks as we waited for everyone. dinner was a great casual dining, Pizza with meatballs!

They had one of the best scones i had ever tasted as a condiment. Food was great. The egg with pasta did not work for me. However, i loved the chicken liver moose.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AMArdeo & Bardeo made it specialWe visited Ardeo from out of town on our anniversary and it was splendid! The manager had a note in his system that it was our anniversary and told the hostess to change our table because of it. We got one of the best tables in the house and complimentary champagne to start! Our server, unfortunately, was very slow but he got better by the end. The food was great and I would go back here!2/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food!Based on high praise from a foodie friend, I had high expectations and they were all met and exceeded!

I will definitely go back.2/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat!The service here was great, we waited a while despite our reservation and the manager came right up to us before we could even complain and apologized, comped our drinks and an expensive appetizer. The food was GOOD, the meatball pizza was amazing. The rest of the night our waitress was very attentive. The scene is hip and fun and it is obvious that the owner of Rasika/Bombay Club has outdone himself again!2/8/2013 12:00:00 AMmy first time here!! lovedmy first time here!! loved it! great food, atmosphere and service!!!2/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the Best burgers andOne of the Best burgers and specialty pizzas around!1/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
