My 7 months pregnant wife and I went out to what we had hoped would be a nice date night on one of the nicest days of the year. We had had issues with the service at Ardé in the past (1.5 hour wait even though we had a reservation, had to send a special lobster dish back because it wasn’t cooked, etc.) but we wanted to give it another shot.

We were seated outside, which was lovely. However, that is where the positive part of the experience ended. We waiting 20 minutes before a server showed up with menus. Another 10 minutes before we got water, followed by another 10 minute wait for the waiter to return with a drink menu. 40 minutes in, we finally ordered our meals. No cutlery or napkins has arrived at this point. Our appetizers finally arrived delivered by the hostess, who was surprised to see we still needed forks and knives. Bread was finally delivered.

A gentlemen next to us arrived some 30 minutes after we sat down. He ordered, had his meal delivered, ate, and read the news paper while my wife and I still waited for our entrees (egg plant parm and the parpadelle). Finally, after an hour and a half with a little bread in our stomachs, but no entrees, we told our waiter (when we could finally flag him down) that we just wanted our check and to cancel the meals.

We paid and left. Not once did a manager come out to check on us, even after we had canceled our meals. Management left their servers to fend for themselves and apologize for the extremely disappointing service (yet again) at Ardé.

This will be our last time at Ardé. It disappointed once again. It has such great potential but service once again is it short coming.

Came late on a Saturday so was pretty empty. The space is SO bright and tables are low and close - limited booths - feels a little like you are eating in a fast casual spot.
What does NOT feel like fast-casual is the service. Attentive, knowledgeable and truly outstanding at their job.
The bread is sweet and heavy but delicious. Gnocchi was phenomenal. Lot's of vegetarian options.

We had a lovely meal, consisting of burrata caprese, veal marsala and linguine frutti di mare. The service was excellent, bread delicious, ambiance fun. Our table for 2 was closely situated to another 2 top which was not ideal, as we could easily hear their conversation and vice versa. Overall, the restaurant seemed to value our experience and checked in periodically to make sure we were pleased.

Arde Osteria was lovely the food was delicious, try the halibut special on risotto with lobster, portions for the main courses are fairly large, one could split the dishes. The calamari appetizer with roasted peppers got us off to a great start.

Signature cocktails were wonderful and the wine list was perfect.

Our wait person was friendly and knowledgeable, we will return soon.

This was our first visit and we loved the ambiance and friendly service. The food was generally very good (the Octopus was to die for), although my branzino was a little sad and boring (presented on a bed of cold tomatoes and cucumbers). I was also disappointed by the white wine list which was limited to three chardonnays and a single pinot grigio. I don't know anyone who drinks Chardonnay by preference these days - what about all those other lovely Italian whites? That said, we will definitely give Arde Osteria another try.

Food quality and service personnel were excellent. Noise continues to be the biggest issue at Arde. Once the crowd died down (glad to see so many patrons) the noise level dropped enough to have reasonable conversation with those at the same table without shouting

Super disappointing. Crab cakes had little flavor and lots of shells. Our waiter was more interested in telling us about his personal life and promoting his work as an actor than attending to our meal. Missed drink orders, cleared food before all we’re done eating, literally asked the last person eating if she could finish up. My third time at the restaurant, second with this waiter. Last time food was exceptional, waiter not so much. This time both made me feel like I’m not going back.

They now have a liquor license, did not announce it. Charged 18$’s to drink the winds that we brought- a very high corkage fee. Would only take one order of food and beverages because they were too busy. I will not be dining there again.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. Arde now has a liquor license. If you byob, there’s a $17 corkage fee. The waitstaff was attentive and patient as our party had many questions and requests. The food was delicious and prepared fresh. The calamari and flat bread apps were delicious. Our party had the crab cake, pappardelle, frutti di mare and fish special dinners. We were all happy with the meals.

Food is delicious and environment is warming. They do have a liquor license now but still allow BYOB for a corking fee. Dishes are somewhat pricey compared to nearby restaurants.

Although we had enjoyed dinner at Arde many times in the past, we had not been for over a year. There have been some significant changes, but we enjoyed the "new" Arde. The menu has been revamped and offers a lot of Italian-American standards as well as some more modern alternatives. It's no longer byob.
All of the main courses that we sampled were excellent, especially the Chianti Braised Short Ribs. I was less fond of a flat bread that we shared to start; the base was too cracker-like for my taste. A cannoli for dessert had a good shell, but the filling needs a little work. We'll definitely be back soon to sample more of the menu.

Food was good overall but not amazing. Most of it lacked flavor so for the price, I was not very impressed. The service was awful. We sat at 7:30 and did not get our food till after 9. We had a new waitress and while she was trying, the manager clearly wasn’t doing anything to help the situation and simply just blamed the waitress. We were asked 3 times to confirm our order so something was obviously wrong.

Perhaps my expectations were higher than they should have been. Our octupus appetizer was actually pretty good, but for $26 was so overpriced for an octupus salad that it was hard to understand the rationale. My wife's chicken parm was average at best. The sauce on some of her pasta was actually overcooked and it looked it. More like a Bravo pizza chicken parm rather than what is billed as high end Italian. My linguini de Mer was, again, okay. The clams were tasteless and smaller than than the tip of my pinky and my hands aren't that big!! The shrimp were cooked well and there was a fair amount of crab meat. It would have been nice to be given a bowl to put the shells into, but that was not even offered. Considering we had two glasses of wine ($22), split the appetizer ($26), had two entrees ($26 and $20) and split a lemon sorbet ($7) and spent about $100.00 plus tip on a ho-hum dinner was disappointing.

There were eight of us and we all enjoyed our meals and apps.

The specials sounded delicious, but I'm glad I asked the price, because they were much higher than the menu items. I sometimes order two apps instead of an entree, but that would have cost me $58!

We saw their sign offering specials and drinks before 6pm. We got there just before 6pm and were able to order at the happy hour price!
