  • "Revisited Bardi's to have lunch with a friend - I'll be going back for dinner soon. Such great cuts of beef. Even the steak sandwich, which we both had, was outstanding. In my opinion, the best steak house in the city. Time to go for a full dinner experience!"

  • "This is one of Toronto great steak restaurants. I have been going to the restaurant for over 15 years and never been disappointed. Alex and his crew take care of everything. A fine wine list and the wine cellar is on the second floor if you want to eat up there. Near the ACC and SkyDome so you were close by for all sports facilities in Toronto!"
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "I have never been anywhere so overpriced and without good reason. The food was horrible..the steak was burnt and not well seasoned. The vegetables tasted like wall. The scallops we're ok but only because they were fried and that does not take much skill. The servers were unhelpful and had nothing good to offer when told of our dissatisfaction with the meal other than a "shrug". Lastly, the place was dead, no one else in the restaurant. At the end of the meal, we got up to get our own coats while the server chatted in the back. Bad food, bad service, emptier wallet."

  • "Went here for lunch. Service was fast and food was good. We had lunch size NY steak. It was cooked correctly and quite tasty. Just your basic steak house; nothing exciting. Soup of the day was gumbo and had a nice bite to it."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "We had a reservation and arrived well in time. Place was nearly empty. Stood at the door for several minutes while staff chatted with each other. We mentioned we had made reservations with OpenTable and had to point out our reservation to them. Finally seated right by the entrance even though the restaurant was empty. Asked to be moved - no problem - t hey moved us to the entrance to the bathroom - much better! Steak was very good but no vegetable side. Wine list was crappy and overpriced. Service was non existent. Got an email from OpenTable the next day advising we were a "no show". All in all, a terrible experience. My husband and I dine out once a week and try different places. We won't bother with Bardi's again."

  • "everything is good there, specially the bardi's special steak is amazing, the only thing is the price is too high, me and my girl spent 181 dollars on 2 steak, 1 salad, 1 soup, 2 dishes of shrim and that costs us 181."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Food was wonderful but the service left questing the quality of the restaurant and inside of the restaurant look like it was straight out of the 70's. I think it is time for a little modern look inside the restaurant."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "A traditional but updated steak house. It has been there forever and does what it knows best. Classic downstairs and quite pleasant upstairs."
    Dined on 2/12/2014

  • "This was our second time at Barde's. I didn't think the first experience could be topped but the second was every bit as good or better. The steaks and lobster were the best and our waiters there have been so interesting to talk to. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the wine room as well. This is my absolute favourite restaurant by far!"

  • "Bardi's is one of the few remaining landmarks of Toronto.I having been dining there for the past 40 years, going back to when there was foil and velveteen wallpaper on the walls.For my early retirement party I chose Bardi's over all the other options in the financial district.It was, to my mind, the perfect venue to put a stamp on my career.The service was impecible as always, however as we were a table of 8, we were disappointed that the wine was not available for a third bottle. As well, the "frites" with a perfect steak were cold and tasted as if they were previously frozen rather than freshly cut. Overly, I am thankful there is still a Bardi's when the other great steak houses of Toronto have gone the way of the Dodo bird. Will be back."

  • "We loved it and will return, if only for the service!"
    Dined on 11/30/2013
  • "Hardly anyone there when we arrived. Should have realized something was up when it was too easy to get a reservation. Strange eating in a large room when it is just the 4 of you."
    Dined on 11/30/2013
  • "I hosted a business meeting and my customers were truly impressed. The service was wonderful, and the food even better. Thank you!"
    Dined on 11/22/2013
  • "Food and service were both good. Atmosphere, decor really need updating. It's time for Bardi's to renovate. Very very old interior showing signs of its age."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "Great place to go for a private business lunch or dinner"
    Dined on 11/12/2013
  • "This restaurant needs updating. I was looking for a restaurant near the ACC and it is within walking distance so it is good for that but not good enough for a great meal with friends. Menu is limited and the service is mediocre."
    Dined on 11/6/2013
  • "I go to Bardi's whenever I am in Toronto. The steaks are great and reasonably priced. And the wine list I stellar. As a lone traveler I really appreciate the large selection of half bottles. We added the excellent chocolate dessert and some port to this meal, and these did not disappoint either. A great dinner again, and I will be back."

    Dined on 9/19/2013
  • "The shrimps were overcooked...not sure how fresh they were."
    Dined on 9/17/2013
  • "Bardis is a classic but the whole restaurant needs a makeover, the furniture is dated, they are stuck in the past. But a go to spot if you want great service a solid steak and peace and quiet over a business meeting. If you want to take a young girl out this is not the spot."
    Dined on 9/12/2013
  • "Had been retired for 7 years...and had not been to Bardi's...went recently...a great value for lunch. Their Julienne salad was very very good..."
    Dined on 8/13/2013
  • "I've been coming to Bardi's for special occasions and work related meals for close to 12 years and this is by far the worst. the service was decent and the place looks the same as always, but for the first time the food was quite mediocre. my steak which was supposed to be medium rare plus was on the wrong side of medium almost medium well. the baked potato tasted like something out of a microwave. at these prices there simply too many other good options in toronto these days. we had desserts at scarp ice which saved the night."
    Dined on 8/3/2013
  • "We go here every time we are in Toronto. The food and service are excellent, but the wine menu is special. If you like steak and wine, you will love this place."

  • "Bardi will and continues to be an excellent restaurant that is best for business an entertaiing of clients. does not have the distractions of other restaurants and the food and wine is excellent as usual"

  • "Good food, good service but decor is early 60s. Its time to stop cash cowing and doing a little updating."
    Dined on 5/8/2013
  • "Very old-school steakhouse. Depending on style, the ambiance upstairs is much nicer than downstairs. Great for going prior to Leafs and Raptors games, food came quickly. Wine list is a bit intimidating with pricing scattered throughout so if you're trying to find a wine in the medium price range, you have to cycle through the entire category rather than it being in ascending order of price. Minor issue."
