• Contemporary American • Oakland
Booked 22 times today
Recommended in the MICHELIN Guide for California 2021-2023. Located in Oakland’s historic Grand Lake District, Bardo is a neighborhood lounge and restaurant inspired by the comfort and camaraderie of a mid-century dinner party. Drawing on the celebration and elegance of old school entertaining, we envisioned a space for friends and neighbors to enjoy amazing food, cocktails, conversation and great music. Our lounge is a swank living room, furnished with hand-picked finds from antique and vintage markets from Palm Springs to Portland. Our mezzanine dining room features a rotating menu of fresh, seasonal supper-fare with local and sustainably sourced meats, fish and produce. While we think the food, drinks and atmosphere are all great reasons to visit us, it’s the relationships with our friends, neighbors and guests that is the driving force behind Bardo.

    My family celebrated my husband’s birthday and had a great experience especially with the service. The waitstaff were friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed raw oysters and the bread was fresh. I had a delicious tuna nicoise salad from the pre fixe menu and my husband had the beef bourguignon. My kids had a burger, mushroom ravioli and the macaroni and cheese. Everything tasted pretty good. We enjoyed the venue near the water.

    We came for the cocktails and found that the food was just as creative and wonderful. The drinks really were creative and fun. Sobre’s version of a Corpse Reviver was memorable! The small plates proved to be a perfect match for drinks. Everyone’s taste is a little different, but we can recommend the flatbread and also the shrimp. This bar and restaurant makes the ordinary something special!

    This was my first time dining at Bardo and I will DEFINITELY be back. I had the local fish dish, which was perfectly prepared. We also had pickled vegetables and the french onion dip (the dip was the only mediocre dish served in my opinion). Wine list, both by the glass and by the bottle, is excellent. Service was tremendous, a rarity in the Bay Area these days. It was a little loud inside, but it didn't bother anyone. I'll definitely be back!

    The food is really quite delicious. We had the tuna melt, the deviled eggs, and the brussels sprouts (theirs are the best!). We are never disappointed. And the service was perfect! Heem greeted us promptly, made sure we had everything we needed and served us with a warm smile. He was helpful, courteous and kind. I highly recommend Grand Lake Kitchen for Sunday Brunch, breakfast, lunch, dinner - anytime. It's a great place to have a good fresh meal.
