Contemporary American
Recommended in the MICHELIN Guide for California 2021-2023. Located in Oakland’s historic Grand Lake District, Bardo is a neighborhood lounge and restaurant inspired by the comfort and camaraderie of a mid-century dinner party. Drawing on the celebration and elegance of old school entertaining, we envisioned a space for friends and neighbors to enjoy amazing food, cocktails, conversation and great music.

Our lounge is a swank living room, furnished with hand-picked finds from antique and vintage markets from Palm Springs to Portland. Our mezzanine dining room features a rotating menu of fresh, seasonal supper-fare with local and sustainably sourced meats, fish and produce. While we think the food, drinks and atmosphere are all great reasons to visit us, it’s the relationships with our friends, neighbors and guests that is the driving force behind Bardo.

    Above and beyond! I took my husband for his birthday and every detail was stellar and casual at the same time. The cocktails were unique and well balanced, the fish with parnsnip puree was to die for, the salad with asian pear was complex, layered and perfectly dressed. (We also had the fettucine which was really good but not as amazing as the fish) The was ambiance lovely and servers were all gracious and attentive. Will definitely be back for another celebratory day.

    Killer restaurant, killer service, this place nails upscale supper club right on the head. The $75pp chefs selection is the best value I’ve seen come out of a restaurant yet, it was around 9 courses, all excellent, and more than enough to eat for 2. Will be back!

    We had the dinner party experience for my birthday, and everything was beautifully presented and delicious. I would bring someone here to spend some quality time together because it’s the kind of lively place where you need to be physically close to have conversation. Before starting the meal, I was already impressed with the charming decor and wandered around marveling at all the dinner party relics. I told our server, Emma, that I loved good surprises and was really looking forward to the dinner party experience, and asked if she could also provide me with wine pairings with each course. She said that wasn’t an official offering, but she liked the idea and felt comfortable accommodating me. I was not disappointed. From the first course through dessert, everything was excellent and practically perfect! Highlights were the deviled eggs, chicory salad, handmade pasta, braised cauliflower, and the “Twinkie”. That’s not to say the other dishes weren’t good, just that these were exceptional. Of course gratuity was included with our check, but I was in such a good mood afterwards that I added a little extra because Emma and the rest of the staff were so professional and accommodating. Can’t wait to go back!

    Food was quite tasty, particularly the grits that came with the chicken and the fudge brownie. We were seated on the upper level next to a table of loungers (not diners) and if they had been any louder, I'd be billing the restaurant for new eardrums. This was not our usual experience at the restaurant, but you need to look about you when they lead you to your table. There's a nice little nook for two to the left of the host's podium.

    Went for restaurant week and I had the fixed price menu. I enjoyed my meal but my friends weren’t bowled over. Service was very good and the upstairs space is nice. However, the noise level was uncommonly loud for a ‘fine’ dining experience. Definitely more ‘club’ than ‘lounge.’ Glad I tried it, but doesn’t make my cut for a repeat visit anytime soon.

    Our 3rd time at Bardo so we obviously like it. The vibe is chill and cool. Feel like you in an old school lounge and on of the brat pack will walk through the door at some point. We arrived early, had drinks then moved to our table and ordered apps, salads and mains. Everything came out timely and was hot. The chicken liver pate was taste but there was an abundance of salt on the bread. The same was true for the ribeye. Our awesome server adjusted our bill to rationalize for the problems. All in all it was a good outing.

    The food was 10/10, everything we ordered was excellent, and was brought to us by the chef himself, who was gregarious and kind. Service was impeccable, our waiter was available but in no way intrusive. Ambience was on point and unique. Will definitely be returning to Bardo!

    Everything was delicious. We started with deviled eggs, beet salad, and croquettes, then shared a pork chop. All I can say is they have given Wood Tavern something to worry about with this dish. The staff were accommodating and extremely helpful as well. Coming back!

    We went to Valentine’s Day. For start, the staff broke a vase full of water next to us, we were very wet, but we get it, sometimes it happens. For a Michelin star, I thought the food wasn’t that good. The filet mignon (super pricy), was salty and greasy, the pork chop had a lot of fat and extremely salty, my husband couldn’t even finish. It’s a good restaurant for appetizers and drinks, but not beyond that. We had high expectations for being a Michelin star restaurant, but we were disappointed.

    I really really wanted to give this place 5 stars. Sadly, I had a poor experience. I scheduled a 7 pm reservation for my sister's engagement celebration. We weren't seated until 7:30 pm or so. They let us wait with sparkling wine, which I think should've been comped. When we were seated, we ordered appetizers right away. It came out at a decent time. The food itself was a bit underwhelming. High price for small tapas plates that tasted okay. The entrees took a lot longer to come out after we ordered. My husband said the gnocchi was lack luster and texture was more chewy - more of a mochi texture. I ordered the Oakland Caesar because it was recommended in reviews. Really really wanted to like it, but the flavor was just not there. The Bardo Burger was a hit though. We ordered dessert and they didn't have any of the ice cream we requested. They did comp our desserts due to the wait and the poor experience. Anyway, I don't think we'll be back.

    Very cool place. Gentle jazz music played while we enjoyed our cocktails and throughout dinner. The staff is amazing and clearly care about your experience. My wife and I loved the food…she had the local fish and I had the filet topped with crab, which was incredible. Best steak I’ve had in a while. We’ll definitely be back!

We all ate, ate and ate to our hearts content. Drinks also spectacular. Our server, Joseph was attentive and sensitive to our time restrictions. Can’t wait to come back again. Thank you Bardo!

    My friend suggested this restaurant for his birthday. I had never been here before. From the second I walked in the door, everyone is so nice. I accidentally made the reservation for a couch, and they were able to put us in a table.The food was absolutely wonderful. We ordered, french fries, tuna carpaccio, butter beans with cornbread and deviled eggs. Those were the starters. They were all so great. I couldn’t even tell you which one was my favorite! As our main course, we ordered the steak and the pork chop. Delicious. Everything was cooked perfectly. We had a cannoli for dessert and they brought it with a candle. So sweet. I can’t wait to go back here again. It is absolutely the best.  .
