We were celebrating 2 family birthdays on a Sunday evening. Ardeo+Bardeo was a good choice-- not crowded, service attentive, and the food was very good. The kitchen made a mistake in assembling our soups (forgot the seared scallops) but they caught up and corrected the mistake before we noticed, providing the missing ingredient at the table. Perhaps to make up for that mistake, we were treated to champagne with dessert. Very nice. We enjoyed the meal and will return.

I went for Sunday brunch. Got there around 1pm. It was crowded. We had a reservation and got seated right away but it took forever for our food to arrive. Mine was not hot. The French press coffee was weak (is that even possible)? The bathroom was a mess. Overall, a disappointing experience.

Met up with a friend because of their champagne brunch - so worth it! The staff were very attentive and our champagne glasses were rarely empty. Highly recommend the butternut squash soup and the omelet - both very rich and delicious. We will be coming back for brunch again, the staff and food are wonderful.

A very nice meal. Very Good food in a low key neighborhood setting. Try the Brussels sprouts and a great beet salad. Only thing was they were out of my preferred scotch at the bar. It had been a while since I was here but will be back again soon - hoping they will restock the bar.

My boyfriend and I visited for brunch. We had a delicious meal and excellent service. Left buzzed and happy.

A favorite neighborhood place. Our dinner started out initially with a bit confusion, but the manager and staff more than made up for it. Food delicious. A very enjoyable evening with friends.

Promising menu, disappointing execution. Brussel sprouts were fantastic, but entrees (mussels, white fish and pasta were just passing. One wasn't hot, one was mundane and one was ordinary.

Nice meal but one main course came out 15 minutes after the other due to a problem in the kitchen with one of the dishes. The waiter and manager were attentive and apologetic but the wait ruined the meal. A free glass of wine did not make up for the inconvenience.

I had sort of forgotten about this place, but it is back on my A-list. I took my 85-year-old and very cultured father here to meet a friend for dinner. Was pleased to get a reservation as it was restaurant week and I hadn't planned ahead. We met friends on the way in who warned us their food was very delayed. Ugh. It was already late-ish and we were hungry! So we ordered quickly. To our delight, the food came very promptly (the friends' meal was comped--a weird snafu accounted for that delay). Our waiter was really gracious, efficient, informative. Really top notch. And the wine, all food, and dessert were fantastic! Well done, Ardeo.

I've been to this restaurant on a few varied occasions-- brunch, dinner, special event menus, and restaurant week. The food has always been beyond my expectation. The food is delicious and offers a variety of classic options and unique dishes. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu-- the steak was perfectly done, the braised short ribs were full of flavor, pasta is delicate, and do not overlook the butternut squash soup (my favourite). There is no need to go downtown for inventive excellent food. The atmosphere in this neighborhood restaurant fits the bill for a more intimate meal. The restaurant is quiet enough to enjoy conversation, but lively enough not to feel isolated. A lovely time.

A neighborhood staple for many years, Ardeo never disappoints. The menu is endlessly creative, constantly recreated, and accompanied by an excellent wine list. I had the lobster risotto, which brought me tears of joy, it was so good. Friends and I generally eat fish dishes here and we haven't hit a bad one yet. The service is very efficient, staff is knowledgable and helpful, and I can't think of anything to complain about.
