Handy location for us near Union Station off Front, nice small scale place, definitely quiet. However rock lobster tails were overdone first round. They did accommodate us and provided replacements but really should have hit it on the first try if they aspire to the price point they have. Their signature rib steak was ok but probably not at the $70 steak level. It varied from rare to medium rare to medium (and not correlating to the bone location). Wasn’t absolutely convinced it was even aged beef. Wife liked the filet but I thought it tasted a bit weird to me.. Nice overall evening, and certainly not a disaster, but we’re probably spoiled having recently been to Keens in NYC..

Went for an anniversary dinner with family. Wonderful and quiet restaurant with prompt staff and impressive wine list. The steaks, medium-rare, were perfect and are consistently the best I've ever had. I cannot endorse the quality of the steaks enough.

We had an early dinner and the venue had lots of empty tables. The waiter seated us immediately. Service was friendly. Food was delicious. My only complaint was the server brought out our meal before we had finished our salad. We felt rushed. The venue was almost empty; I didn't see a reason to rush us. The server had already asked if we were going to a game or had to be anywhere when we first sat down.

Unfortunately, the memory that stays with me is feeling rushed.

Been a long time since last visit but so glad we came ...
Service attentive but not overbearing . Seafood chowder velvety smooth . Salmon cooked to perfection .. Surf and turf artfully presented and delicious ..
Sadly no room to try any of the dessert selection, next time ..

Bardi's is a good spot for a business lunch or dinner. Ambiance is good, quiet and the service attentive. The food is good but over priced relative to other Toronto restaurants offering a similar menu.

Old school steakhouse with very dated decor and traditional steakhouse fare. Not a memorable experience. Dinner for 2 including a bottle of wine ($90) was close to $500 all in. Caesar salad was below average as was the organic green salad. Veggies were fresh and not over cooked which was better than expected given the salad experience. Steak (filet mignon) was highly tenderized but cooked as ordered. Cheesecake was a typical kind - probably frozen.

My wife and I decided reviewed the menu and location to have dinner prior to the Leafs game. We were both looking forward to some seafood, mainly the lobster on the menu. Once we ordered drinks and went to place our order we were advised they don't serve any lobster on nights the Leafs are playing. No where does it state this on their website, nor can I comprehend the reasoning for this.

I had some scallops instead, they were ok, but nothing special. Service was adequate.

I personally would not return.

The staff was amazing! They were very friendly. The only thing I didn’t like was our waiter never came to ask how our main meal was. After taking a bite of my lobster I realized it was rubbery and dry... was not happy at all with it. Also my brothers lobster was the same. The rest of the meal was fantastic! Was it worth $95.00? I don’t think so.

My suggestion is if you go there don’t get the surf and turf just get the steak.

Bardi's delivered everything we expected and more. We like steak but cannot eat big portions. Our server made us feel welcome and special .He was very accomodating and did not make us feel uncomfortable when we wanTed today share our steak selection.

The dinner and fixings were exceptional.
Great dinner. Will return when we next visit Toronto. Good family business.

Very disappointed sad to say. Looked like a classic and I have heard some good things but the steaks were overdone and there was not much thought given to service at all once the food came out...in fact, the waiter didn't even stick around to grab the chit from the debit machine.

Location is great before a game but way overpriced. I don't mind paying at all, but the value and the food was lousy. Heading back to Mortons next time.

Truly disappointed, party of 3, friends night out. The host literally threw the menus at us on the table, he then stood at the bar and complained about a table, calling them socialites, 1 of 3 meals ordered came out cold. ( this was taken off the bill) . We all felt that we were an inconvenience and the overall experience there was less than enjoyable. I felt badly as they gave me the choice to pick and they too, will not refer this place. Very unfortunate.

I was very disappointed by this restaurant. The service was very pleasant and my rib steak was very good. My wife had the salmon and it was mediocre. The meal was extremely expensive, the restaurant was filthy (I don't think the carpet has been cleaned, let alone changed in the 50+ years of operation). One would think that at these prices they could afford someone to clean under the baseboard heaters that are clearly visible to the diners. a one once, watered-down single malt scotch fro $27.50 is outrageous!! The prices on the website are not the prices on the menu.

Very disappointed for upscale restaurant -we staying at Royal York. caesar salad..no bacon..no fresh parm..crab cakes almost burnt- served as soon as ordered..almost like leftovers. Steak served with plain cold baked potatoe and frozen butter cube, a piece of parsley and one cherry tomatoe!! .i sent back to reheat. Pathetic !! Only good thing was the $55 bottle of cheap white wine & my 3 friends company. Better off going to Loose Moose for excellent service, hot pub food!!
