Wonderful food & service, a bit tired looking. Could use some new carpet, better lighting & cleaning.
We were there for lunch and the real draw back was not having a washroom on the main level.
I was there with my elderly uncle and the stairs to the basement bathroom were quite difficult for him.
Unfortunately he won’t be back, but I would definitely go to Bardi’s again.

UPDATE Came here again tonight for my bfs birthday. I had a few requests which they actually did! I requested 2 glasses of wine to be ready at the table for our reso with the shrimp bardis appetizer, and they came through! My bf was very thankful and surprised! Dinner was beyond amazing 👏 thank you guys for helping to make this night super special for us. Everything was perfect! I love that they are attentive and welcoming. They even let us take a photo with the beautiful cellar! We will always come back here. They have a digital menu, sign in for contact tracing, sanitizer, and everyone follows the covid protocols. :)

Staff are extremely pleasant. The food is beyond amazing. I had the bardis special. A giant rib steak (bone in) and had the shrimp bardis as an appetizer. Their wine selection is out of this world. The zinfindel was a nice pairing to the steak. Overall simple yet beautiful place to eat. Thank you Bardis!

The wine list was a bit dated but it did not ruin the great meal and service.

This is our go-to restaurant for an excellent meal. The steaks were superbly prepared, especially with the sautéed mushrooms; our appetizer (escargot) had just the right amount of garlic on them; and the cheesecake for dessert was fabulous. In the past I've had the salmon and chicken dishes, and they were fantastic! There is an extensive wine list... something for everyone! Service is prompt and very friendly. We've tried other steakhouses in the downtown area, but when we visited Bardi's for the first time, we knew this was it!

Their striploin was one of the best steaks I've ever had. It was flavourful, tender and cooked perfectly. Our waiter was very polite and attentive. The decor is a throwback to the 30s or 40s but but I think it works here. It has a classic steakhouse feel and it fits in quite well considering it's in the same neighbourhood as the Royal York and Union Station.

This was a lovely 25’th anniversary dinner for my husband and me. The steak was perfectly cooked, service impeccable for both attentiveness and promptness. I do wish they had a drink menu- apparently they do not. We had a late seating, (8:15 pm) so between that and covid distancing for tables, the atmosphere was rather dull. However we had a quiet and romantic dinner, which was the goal. They brought us a complementary dessert for our anniversary which was a nice touch. We live in Ottawa, but will visit again when we travel to Toronto again :)

At 55 years young you know a thing or two about what constitutes a good steakhouse.
Save your hard earned money for anywhere but this place.

Escargot: had to search through the dish just to find them. Swimming in some sort of garlic mix or charlottes.

Garlic bread: very good but hey…it’s garlic cheese bread not rocket science.

Baked potato with mushroom and spinach. Again. Not to tricky. So very good.

Steak: 9 and 12 Oz filet mignon
If you like your steak so soft to cut that it’s like butter than you will enjoy but for me it was a waste of a good cut. They must tenderize to death. A real steak should be firm and juicy but also melt in your mouth.
The Keg does a better filet and they are the McDonalds of steak houses. (Sorry Keg lovers)

Service: tipped 10% and that was generous. Say no more


Ambience: 2 out of 10

All in All if you don’t want to spend $400 on a dinner for two and be so disappointed, go anywhere else but here.

Cheers

We were the only customers in the restaurant but it was a Monday night. Service was very attentive. Food was good but not outstanding. The steak orders come with potato or rice, but the add ons like mushrooms, vegetables and sauces are very expensive for what you get. As in a lot of cases, food prices were higher than the prices showing on their online menu which I assume is the Covid premium.

Save your money, time and outfit. Atmosphere is not modern very old looking. Waiter sat us we were not offered a wine list /drink menus at our table. The waiter did the bare minimum, not really checking in until we asked for the bill. The wine list/ drink menu was not digital here as most establishments have converted to digital menu due to covid. I could see it being passed around to other tables around us. I ordered the peasant salad and surf and turf. My steak was so salty it was the equivalent to high blood pressure in a plate. Our dinner came up to 200$ for our table of two, which is normal for a “good steak dinner”.
