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.

We had a great Thanksgiving dinner. The food was delicious and the service was top notch. The turkey dinner was wonderful. This has become a holiday tradition for us. It was great to see Fran back! She was awesome and gracious as always. Staff was great.

Thanksgiving dinner for two at two.
Wonderfully prepared prix fixe dinner. The Turkey was the most tender I’ve had in ages. The only reason it is not a five star rating was that we seemed a little rushed even though it was not too busy. I was still chewing my main when my plate was cleared. Will be back soon.

I have dinned here 3 or more times. This is not a fancy or wow restaurant but it has an imaginative cuisine and great presentation. The wine list is a bit pricey. I come here, in part, because it is not a loud or noisy restaurant. You can actually converse with your family or friends without cupping your ears trying to hear what they are saying.

I used to live in Cleveland Park and eat at Ardeo Bardeo quite often. I was looking forward to meeting some friends from out of town for Sunday brunch. Both the service and the food have deteriorated. My Eggs Benedict was generally ok but stone cold. The "savory biscuits" were a flat failure. Twice servers interrupted our conversation to ask "how's everything?" But we had to ask three times for more coffee. My friends had a similar reaction to their food and I was embarrassed to have foisted such a poor brunch on them. I'm probably going to give Ardeo Bardeo another chance in the evening but I won't be back for brunch.

The food was quite good. The service was good but not exceptional. My husband objected to having no tablecloth resulting in the silverware sitting directly on the table top. He felt like he couldn't trust how clean the surface really was.

I WROTE A REVIEW YESTERDAY AND SENT IT DIRECTLY TO THE RESTAURANT FROM THEIR WEBSITE BECAUSE I DID NOT WANT TO POST NEGATIVE COMMENTS ONLINE.
APPARENTLY THEY DID NOT GET IT OR DID NOT READ IT SO HERE GOES:

With my brunch order came a hash brown cake or patty. I took 2 bites of it and could not eat it. It was WAY too salty. Was as if they'd mixed the smoked salmon with the potatoes and then added much more salt. I did not say anything to the server because I did not think anything could be done about it. Took it home with other leftovers and my son tried to eat it and could not. Kitchen should be informed to test this before sending it out like that again. Rest of the food was good and nicely presented.

Great brunch menu with bottomless mimosa option! For a small plate, main plate, and bottomless mimosa, the cost is $29 which is a great deal! I brought my out-of-town friends here for their first bottomless brunch experience and they had a great time! Our drinks were never empty and service was fantastic!

Ardeo is consistently welcoming, the food is always perfect, the service amazing -- it is a hidden gem. The seasonally changing brussel sprouts are a personal fav, but their hamburger is fabulous, their soft-shelled crabs delicious ... basically they do fancy food and easy food very well, and serve it in an ambiance that feels laid back, comfortable, mildly elegant but not the the point to put you off -- just a lovely place.

We went to Ardeo for brunch to celebrate a friend’s upcoming wedding. Our server, Brandon, was very attentive and courteous. All the dishes were elegantly plated almost as in a fine dining restaurant. Everyone agreed that Shrimp and Grits was definitely the star of the brunch -- delicately seasoned tiger prawns (huge!) cooked just right on top of velvety grits -- classic comfort food. Huevos Rancheros was savory; the guacamole mousse smeared on the plate was a very nice touch. Smoked salmon and lump crab, portioned just right, worked well together in the Eggs Norwegian. I highly recommend the brunch as the price is quite reasonable for the kind of quality and portion sizes you get. Both your wallet and your stomach will thank you!

The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Service was personable and professional. So happy that they were open early for dinner and offered a Yom Kippur menu. Will be making this at least an annual tradition. Great wine list too.

All the brunch items came to the table well prepared and stylish. Everything tasted great. Only problem was the waiter. You would ask him a question or request, and it would take like 5 seconds or so for the words to register with him. We all concluded that the waiter was probably hung-over from the previous evening.

My husband and I went out for a date night dinner during restaurant week. The starters were delicious (watermelon feta salad and watermelon gazpacho), entree was not exceptional but still tasted great (my husband had filet and I ordered mussels) and the portions were just right, and dessert topped it off. Great value in the neighborhood. I miss the old ardeo bardeo where it had more of an Italian flavor with a twist. The best part of our night was our waitress, Antoinette, who was friendly and caring.

It had been a few years since I had brunch at Ardeo + Bardeo, and it was better than I remembered. Excellent portion sizes, delicious bread basket that they refilled on request, and strong mimosas. A side of brussels sprouts was easily enough for three people. I'll keep coming back to Ardeo as long as the good food and attentive service continue.

The four of us all had different dishes after sharing delicious calamari for an appetizer, and from meet to seafood all was top notch. Shared desserts -- crème brulee with honey and a beyond wonderful chocolate tarte. Made us wonder why we hadn't been back in so long and vow to return again soon. Only suggestion: add more diversity to the list of wines by the glass. Need at least one sweet white and some summer roses would be welcome.

Fantastic brunch deal. The french toast (and the whipped cream, I think?) was rich and delicious, and the Norwegian Benedict was also savory and had the perfect amount of everything. (Possibly too many potatoes, if that's realistic.) Atmosphere was lively, and the service was always there with a refill when we needed one! Great time out!

We went for Father's Day brunch and it was good but it was pricey. The sides were $7 each and they don't have a kids menu so we went with sides for our kids since the other menu items were too big and expensive. We ended up spending $35 on sides for 3 kids.
