    Our first visit to Bardea Steak was a great experience. The restaurant is still very new, so they are working out some of the finer points of their operations, but this is a great experience. The food is incredible and the service is very good. The wine and cocktail list is great and we liked their selections of wine by the glass. I won't give a full review of what we ate, but I have a few suggestions. 1) read and study both the menu and beef list before you go, as this is a unique experience and you will have a better time if you understand the concept. 2) the raw items are not all raw, but they do serve as nice snacks or appetizers, in addition to the featured snacks. 3) pace yourself and do not get carried away with ordering too much. Your server will help you. 4) save room for dessert.

    Beautiful decor- we sat inside. The outside seating looked amazing as well. Several of the plates and the apps were amazing. Definitely try the cabbage, beef heart empanada, dates and the house salad (this is amazing!) . Service was exceptional and the espresso martini is a must.

    Perfect spot for a special occasion. I don’t think I’ve ever had such an incredible meal! The flavors were incredible. Don’t sleep on the smoked cabbage - it was probably the most delicious thing I’ve ever tasted.

    This is my third time at Bardea Steak and it may have been the best visit. Both the veal appetizer and the cubano sandwich were amazing - creative and delicious. The house salad is tremendous. We shared it between four. Our friends had the tomahawk steak and loved it. We had the halibut and the salmon. I loved the halibut while the salmon was a bit undercooked. The broccoli two-ways was a touch disappointing. But everything else was fantastic. The garden is truly beautiful and the service was impeccable. The music level was perfect for most of our dinner but oddly got louder later in the evening.....just when one wants the place to feel more intimate. Small complaints about an overall fantastic experience.

    We chose the Chefs Tasting Menu at $250 pp. Would have hesitated a lot less if it was around $150 pp instead. There were 17 courses! And they saved the best for last including the best meat cuts and dessert. By the time we got to the final courses we were stuffed. Most of the dishes were just one or two bites. One con to the night was that we were literally there 3 hours, it was a long sitting and towards the end we were ready to leave. The best dishes were the steak cake, turducken croquettes and picahna with chimichurri sauce. Overall, I didn’t feel like we received $500 worth of food. I wouldn’t recommend the chefs tasting menu to anyone and would suggest you order off the regular menu instead. Tasting Menu 1. Yellow gazpacho, tomato dashi and beef jerky 2. Raw Oyster with cucumber 3. Red snapper tartare 4. Diver scallops 5. Bison tataki 6. Eggplant tempura ‘crabby patty’ 7. Turducken cranberry croquette 8. Goat cheese dates and tendon chips 9. Cheese filled croissant “steak cake” 10. Wild Boar flaky cuban 11. Elk meatball 12. Ostrich skewer pineapple 13. Smoked tri-tip meat with white sweet potato 14. Iberico solomillo pork 15. Palate cleanser fruit popsicle herb icecream 16. Picahna, Denver cattle and side dish red cabbage 17. Paklova fruit pebbles macaron

    Food was sublime; all dishes were interesting and delicious. We kept ordering new appetizers . Only gripe was that we were a little too full when the steaks came. I rarely get steaks out because they’re never quite as good as I make at home, but this was not the case here. While we ordered smaller steaks, they were cooked perfectly, and each bite was amazing. Try the croissant, red cabbage, and elk meatballs… Place was gorgeous and service was really good as well. We got there at six on a Friday night, and it was relatively quiet for the first hour. By the time we left, and the entire restaurant was full and buzzing.

    Great food and nice atmosphere, but the tables (for two) are so small we could barely fit our food and drinks on the table. Once we Jenga-ed everything on to the table, the meal was awesome.

    This was our second visit to Bardea Steak, and unfortunately did not meet expectations. Our server was not attentive- water was not refilled, menu items were not explained. We shared a steak flight and unfortunately found the meat to be overly salty. However, cocktails were excellent, the Golden Gurnsey croissant and cured meats were outstanding, as was the little chocolate cake. I like Bardea Steak but am not in love yet. I still prefer its sister Bardea.

    Dinner outside was very nice, we appreciated not being rushed thru the meal. We had the italian beef filets and they were great. The mac and cheese was one of the best. The broccoli was just ok, would get something else next time. The bottle of wine that was suggested was yummy. The chocolate cake was a full 4 layer cake. We will definetly return.

    Steak lover paradise. The different cuts, steers, sauces, and sides are all amazing. The staff was not only friendly but knowledgeable about it all. Drinks are great, sides are amazing. The presentation of everything is some of the best I’ve seen. I can’t say enough good things about this experience. And it’s not just dinner. It’s an experience.

    Loved all the appetizers— a beef salad/carpaccio special, elk skewer, croissant with meat And ricotta type cheese. Mac n cheese and broccoli was delicious— rich, inventive takes on classics. Service A plus with Jose. Cocktails and wine delicious. Only thing that we were not 100 percent satisfied with was the meat itself. The chamima (?sp) steak was too fatty for us and the filet of another cow was not as tasty as we were looking for with the prices! Would still go back and just order sides/entrees on the non- meat menu

    The food and service were outstanding!! The ribeye, elk skewers, beef heart empanadas and raw items were delicious. The only negative is that the table we were sitting at was so small we couldn't fit our steak and side item. Had to put the salad on the chair.

    Had an excellent meal celebrating my husband’s birthday. It definitely is a splurge but the quality of the food and the service justifies the cost. Will definitely go again. Reviewing the menu online in advance is very helpful as it can be a little overwhelming on a first visit if you don’t know what to expect, although our server was very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining the menu and the various of cuts of beef, etc. Only one tiny criticism— the tables for 2 are very small for accommodating multiple plates and side dishes, and they set very close together. Otherwise a very lovely dining experience.

    An incredible addition to Wilmington. Food was out of this world. I could do without the night-club level volume of music, but that seems to be the trend these days. We’ll get a reservation outside next time so that we can hear each other - but we’ll be back!

    We chose to go here for our anniversary and we were not disappointed. Bardea exceeded our expectations from staff (highly knowledgeable about the menu, which is a little confusing, gave great recommendations, attentive without hovering, Thanks Johnathan!) to drinks, to food (amazing flavor profiles, unique tastes, attention to mouthfeel and textures) to presentation (gorgeous!) The garden area where we sat was lovely and felt secluded from the street it's on. 10/10 perfect experience. Thank you!

    Dinner was excellent . Simply the best steak I' ve ever had . Service was excellent but the music was too so loud where we were sitting that it was not possible not to hear the server describe the menu options, even after she leaned over next to me. That was frustrating. But the reservation system or something needs improvement. We wanted to dine outside because of Covid and waited for a beautiful evening to make reservations and specially request outside dining .When we arrived for our 515 reservation, we were told all outside dining was taken, even though but not one person was seated outside . When we departed at 700 pm, there were still several open tables outside .It makes you feel like the restaurant thinks other customers are more important than you. As a result, my wife does not want to come back.
