My husband and I had a lovely time and the Server was knowledgeable. He was helpful when we asked about the Menü. We will be back for my birthday in April!

    Was not happy about sitting at the bar because it was our anniversary but have been dying to try this place so took what we could for a reservation. Bartender was so amazing and really made it a special experience. We can’t wait to go back again! Food was fantastic and the drinks were quite an experience even down to the coffee!

    Another exceptional experience at Bardea Steak. The servers were attentive, knowledgeable of the menu and delivered excellent service. The Sommelier (Eric) helped us to pick an exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon (Mount Eden) for our Valentine’s dinner, which we loved. Eric continues to assist us in drinking new and wonderful wines. We had 2 appetizers- Hamachi and lobster rolls- both were fabulous. Dinner was steak tasting board, our favorites were Washugyu, Holstein and Piedmontese. Our server explained the different cuts and how they were unique. We enjoyed the Apple fritter dessert and an awesome Espresso Martini. Plus there is a valet so no problem with parking. Definitely will be back!

    The service was exceptional. Food was delicious - maybe the best steak we ever had... We had a great wine from Napa Valley. It was a bit noisy but that was because of the people at the table next to us not the restaurant's fault.

    Food was fantastic. Service was great. Not thrilled with paying a 3% surcharge for employee healthcare. Was not told upfront about it. Employer should pay for healthcare. This expense should be included in cost of doing business and I would be fine with it.

    We had reserved for the chefs tasting experience for Valentine’s Day and even though I emailed the restaurant way ahead of time regarding substitutions for shellfish allergies it was very disappointing that our waiter told us there would be no substitutions and that the only allergy they can accommodate for was nuts. After we told him we had confirmed with the restaurant ahead of time, we had to show him the email which he then took to the kitchen to see if they could actually do something about it. When he came back with our phone, he told us they would substitute all our dinners for no seafood, which is not what two of our guests wanted and felt like they were missing out. Very disappointed especially with the price tag that comes with the chefs tasting menu. The little bites of food had great flavor but were not enough amount of food to fill you up. The restaurant had great ambiance and staff were friendly but I would not recommend the chef’s tasting experience.

    Our server did not go over the menu or let us know if there were any specials. The beef tartare flavor was dampened by the pastry it was served in and the cheese did not complement the beef at all. I understand it was supposed to have a “Philly cheese steak” vibe but for us, it missed the mark. Oysters were delicious. The steaks took 45 minutes after we ordered them to arrive. My husband’s steak was undercooked and my steak was overcooked half way through. The mushrooms were leathery and cold. The spinach pot pie was basic. At first glance I thought it was a nice touch to have tooth flossers available but then realized they were not individually wrapped and were stationed next to the paper towels in the restroom. Not only did this seem very unhygienic (you can not trust everyone to wash their hands) but when I glanced in at them I realized there was water all over the picks. Overall, it was a very underwhelming experience.

    Next if I ever go to this restaurant again I will not be ordering the taster menu! Especially we ordered this on a Saturday and we sat between courses an hour at one point. I ended up leaving before the last course. We were there for 3 hours 😖 The food is excellent there. But if your table doesn’t have a dedicated waiter or waitress like ours and it’s the weekend you’re gonna wait longer than you’d expect! Food was out standing otherwise. Next time if there is a next time we just order a regular meal

    The main room was very cozy and I was a bit disappointed when we were walked past that entire room to be seated in an atrium/porch type setting. I wish the ambience hadn't changed from one room to the next. Don't get me wrong, the area was nice but not as formal and the tables were entirely too close together. Everytime the waiter came up to serve the table next to us, we had his rear-end in our face while he talked to the patrons. So I guess for the fanciness of the place, I would have appreciated a little more room. But other that, great food and great staff.

    The food is absolutely superb. The presentation is absolutely superb. In my opinion the tables are too small for the presentation, and for the seating area, there is not enough room on the tables for your side, dishes and your entrées. The timeliness of the food was extremely slow for a Thursday evening.

    This was our first time at the restaurant. We were celebrating my husband's birthday and seated at a very small table. When we ordered, we were informed it was tapas style and ordered multiple dishes which were great. However, they arrived around the same time and rather than space them out, a server (not ours) stated that we would be getting a lot of large dishes that would not fit on the table. It made us feel rushed and a bit discombobulated, which seemed unnecessary. If we go again, I will definitely request a different table in advance in order to have a better dining experience.

    You just have to experience something like this for yourself. Incredible. Every bite an adventure. A trip around the world. A 10 course tasting will usually still leave a 6 foot 4 individual wanting something else to eat. We were both full and almost couldn’t finish. Exquisitely prepared. A beautiful sight for the eye and a deliciously wonderful experience in every bite. My favorite restaurant in all of Delaware!!!

    The food was just okay. For Wilmington, the prices are high for food and drinks. My meal was a non-steak option that was not very good at all - it was the lobster pasta that had an overwhelming tarragon flavor. All others at the table had steak that they reported was "good". The sides were tasty - especially the salad, mac and cheese and spinach, but nothing was noteworthy or exceptional. I definitely prefer the original Bardea next door.

    First time here..Dinner for 4 last night...Two seniors myself and my wife , and two generation Y son and his wife for her birthday and in for the holidays. After 35 years in the financial services industry we are quite familiar with fine dining locally and all over the world. First..Its a pleasure to see attempts at revitalizing Market Street succeeding..but we came from the North end of Market street going south at night and we couldn't discern whether or not they had valet parking in front as all parking spots in front of the restaurant cars were crowded as well as Market St. and cars behind us were pushing us along. Other places including their sister restaurant displayed valet signage so we figured that they did not offer valet which I though was odd.so we ended up parking a few blocks away in a less desirable area. As it turns out..the 7th St. Valet parking at their sister restaurant covers both but by that time we had moved well past that area. Signage would be nice or advice on their website..Maybe I should have figured that out quicker but we were being pushed by the cars behind us. I have informed their manager of possibly putting that advice on their website and she thanked me and stated she thought it was a good idea. Our impressions...a nice place for fine dining..we ate in the main dining room..It looks as if the bar area is well positioned and would be a great place for mingling and standing or seating.... Our server was excellent...and the food choices were quite varied. The main dining area is unusually dark so reading the menus was difficult without Iphone lights. We thought the Butcher's Feast ( our server's suggestion) was the way to go and a great way to experience the different steak options with various sauces and sides. We ordered the Tortellini as an appetizer and it was good. There was no bread offered which was a disappointment. Our entrees did not appear until an hour after the entrée which is

    Food was mediocre. Too much emphasis on creating a wow presentation at the expense of good tasting fare. Portions, particularly appetizers, were small. Steaks ordered were hit and miss as to quality. Sides were nothing special. They seemed to forget they were a Steak House.
