The service here was very good, attentive and prompt and accurate. The food is very "solid" albeit somewhat expensive. The decor is "tired".

It’s a 30 year old legend for steakhouses … and while the servers were great and the atmosphere nostalgic, much of the food is sub par especially for the price. The seafood chowder was too thick and even had a “skin” on top; the filet was far too charred and not cooked evenly to the proper temperature; the crab cakes weee not fresh or tasty. There are some wins … the scallops and their sauce were amazing; the Greek salad people seemed to like; and their onion rings were good. But overall, no plans to be back sadly.

Confused service on who ordered what but the food was below average for long standing Toronto Steakhouse - steaks were overdone and overly charred (burnt). Fixings for baked potatoes was very basic. Would not recommend and would not go back.

We were kind of spoiled because we were there for a Friday lunch, and had the place virtually to ourselves, so we can only comment on this basis. The food was excellent. The scallops were fresh and cooked to perfection as were the vegetables. The steak sandwich was also perfectly prepared and presented. The little birthday girl pronounced her hamburger to be wonderful, and really loved the surprise dessert that the staff presented her with...along with a hearty rendering of "Happy Birthday." Congratulations, Bardi's!

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!

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 :)
