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”.

We were there to celebrate our sons 14 birthday. We were seated in the back room with one other table. A large group of men. They were very loud and used some foul language. We would have appreciated an option to move to a different table. Other than that it was great but that was a huge factor. Could not even talk to our son they were so loud.

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.
