I will say that our group loved their dinners. I had the New York strip, and it was seasoned and cooked perfectly. We had a great time. I recommend having dinner here.

The steaks are good, extensive wine list. Decor is quite outdated and drab.
Service was excellent.

Loved the manager he was on point and you can tell he loves his job. Loved everything except I found my steak to be on the salty side. And well the place needs a little update but otherwise if it hadn't been for the service and love the staff puts into their customers I'd say this place is ok. Needs abit of help. Will still go back bx of service and staff.

Our reception was poor. They didn’t have our reservation despite booking on this app. Kept us standing a while before the even greeting us. Then spent a lot of time looking for the reservation they couldn’t find while we stood and waited. There were lots of tables that never did fill up. They should have simply welcomed us and seated us and looked after. It was really poor.

Once seated, the service was very good.

Food was ok but overpriced. Crab cakes were cold.

With all the choices in Toronto, we won’t be back any time soon.

What makes this a great place for me is the fact they are doing the same thing for the past 40 plus years with a long term staff and nothing splashy just good food, good service and competitive value.
The smaller, quieter atmosphere may not be for everyone but we quite enjoy.

3 people for dinner, 2 of us ordered the 20 oz bone in rib and they brought us each a steak that was approx a 14 oz steak. I’ve eaten steaks in every major city in Canada and I grill a lot. The bone in rib is my favourite steak. When it is actually 20 oz (or about 15 -16 oz after it is grilled) it’s a lot of meat on your plate for one person but if you’re really hungry you can get it done:). When the waiter brought me my steak the first thing I said was “it’s not a 20 oz steak”. It was an average steak - maybe 14 oz pre-cooked. He muttered something and left. He never came back to ask us how our meal was. Seems like Bardi’s is trying to save some money on beef but the downside is I prob won’t be going back. It was cooked well but paying $80 for a 14 oz rib steak is a bit over priced

I found the restaurant to be ok. My chair was wobbly for one thing. I would like to think for the prices I paid (334.00) two people including tip that the chair I sit on is appropriate. Note, salad, potato, 9 oz filet and 1/2 bottle of wine.

Nice quiet spot with good steaks. I do think the garlic cheese toast they promote is good but overpriced.

Expected a thick juicy steak for a 12oz $75 steak. Sadly it was something from the grocery. Much better offering out there for that kind of money.

I hadn't been to Bardi's in 5 or 6 years, opting for other choices while in Toronto. So glad I went back. The service and the food were excellent.

My grandson and I had dinner before the Raptors game and enjoyed every bite. Traditional steak house with good variety of both appetizers and mains. The service was excellent and while dated the atmosphere is comfortable and the location great for anything at Scotiabank Center.

Classic steakhouse menu and attentive service. While the space isn’t fancy the food is reliably good and the atmosphere is welcoming. Low key, relaxing vibe.

Great food but on the expensive side. Felt very rushed and the waiter staff were very inpatient. Had the feeling of being herded like cattle. For the price one would expect a higher level of professionalism on the part of the staff. We have dined here several times previously without this rushed service but I for one will not be going back.

I was actually disappointed. Have been here before and it was amazing; but his time the food was really salty and the wine was not to standard, especially for the price point. I was super excited to bring my hubbie to this (normally) amazing place, but it was not up to the usual standard. Must have been an off night?!?

Bardi’s is very very good. Small, quiet in a good old school way. I used to go frequently in the past (10yrs+ ago) and was blown away when I went there recently and the host, Jamie, remembered me. The service is excellent! Jamie is the best host out there. Our steaks were excellent! Perfectly cooked, tender, and delicious! I would highly recommend Bardi’s to anyone!
