Emily our waitress was amazing. Our bottomless brunch and food was great.

We really enjoyed our food and the atmosphere. Very good service. Husbands both ordered the filet, they asked the waiter if the cooks were good at cooking steak properly. The waiter said they are. The steaks were ordered medium rare. The steaks came medium well. :( when they told the waiter he took the steaks away and said it would be corrected as quickly as possible. The manager came out and apologized. We, the wives, were almost done with our food by the time the steaks came out again.
They were cooked to perfection this time, I tasted my husbands steak, it was delicious. I had the fried chicken and it was so so so good. We also had the mussels (excellent), Brussels sprouts (excellent) and calamari (very good). Cocktails were awesome. Wine selection only included 2 Italian reds, the only true disappointment of the evening.

We went to dinner here for NYE and were super impressed! The crab fritters, pesto gnocchi, and lobster risotto were to die for, plus we really went in on the bread and butter, too. Would also recommend the cocktails - manzanarita if you’re in the mood for something apple-y. Can’t wait to return!

This is a great restaurant! We dined there on New Year's Eve. Its close proximity to the Omni Shoreham (1 mile) provided a great dining alternative. We loved the ambiance, our meals, and the wine! The evening held three wonderful surprises for me. First was the wine. The house pinot noir was amazing. Second was the shrimp and grits. I have changed my mind about not liking this dish. I had tried it elsewhere and had written it off as dull, tasteless, and disappointing. At my husband's urging, I relented and Wow! The wonderful seasonings and the dish's perfect texture have converted me. But, I will only have it at Ardeo + Bardeo. My dish was exciting too - seared salmon, wild rice, decilata squash, spinach and cardamom. The presentation was fascinating and the food was delicious. The final surprise was the caramelized honey crème brulee with mixed berries, almond shortbread. It was beyond wonderful! Crème brulee was another dish I had written off as blaaah, but not this one. Let me not forget to mention our waiter. He was warm, engaging, and appropriately attentive. So, we will return! Thanks, Ardeo + Bardeo! Bravo!

Creative and delicious dishes in a moderately quiet atmosphere. My sister and I enjoyed our experience here and would definitely come back. The service was good and not overbearing and the atmosphere was moderately quiet and casual.

The service was impeccable and the food really blew me away. After living in DC for 6 months I wasn’t expecting much from the restaurant but it was a pleasant surprise with the Polenta Steak and the Lobster Risotto.

The Brussel sprouts were excellent. The risotto was over sauced and lacking in flavor. The waiter was attentive. The food used to be quite good but over the past year or so the quality has declined

We used to come here often for brunch. When we went last Saturday, it was surprisingly slow for the weekend of Thanksgiving. There were very few people there but service was still slow and food was slow to come out. It took a while to get coffee too. Our waitress was fine but cold, lacked personality and barely smiled or spoke to us, not the friendly, happy service we’ve been used to here. It just seemed like we were a transaction $. Gone down hill a bit.
