After an awesome brunch over last summer, I made my first trip to Cardinal Bistro for dinner. We shared the brussell sprouts, gnocchi and duck confit appetizers, all of which were fantastic. Service was very good and the filet was top notch. Looking forward to my next visit.
An enjoyable experience. Very accommodating and well worth a return visit.
Our meal meal at Cardinal bistro was very creative. The gentleman who was our server was polite and informative. The ambience is nothing special and the noise level was a little louder than comfortable but tolerable. The only complaint that we had regarding the food was that considering the freshness and creativity of the chef, The salt content of the appetizers and side dishes and main dish was a little overwhelming. Not sure if anyone has complained of this before but reducing the saltiness of the foods would be a definite improvement.
We took my sister out for her birthday to Sunday brunch on March 31. The restaurant was not busy two tables of 6 and two tables with 2 and our table of 3. We were not rushed but it seem our waitress forgot or just didn't care about us. The owners father was great he took our drink order 2 coffee and one water that was fine and as always he was very nice. But then we come to the waitress took our food order and brought the food that was it. She never checked back in or ask if we needed any thing, or if everything was ok. They did not know it was my sister birthday. But we overheard the waitress ask the table next to us if they wanted any desert. Hearing what they had to offer it sound pretty good to us and with it being my sister birthday we were interested. But no the waitress without asking if we wanted any she just dropped off our check, feeling slighted we were ready to go. Sad to say but I thought about letting my tip reflect my feelings but no we are better then that.
Great food and service. I am very particular about scrambled eggs. They were perfect as was the bacon. There are many other great choices on the brunch menu but I just love their bacon and eggs. It is also a great place for dinner.
One of the best restaurants in the area! Truly a top 3 for me..
Five star is not enough. The service was excellent, the food was magnificent especially the popcorn grits. We will definitely back for dinner and lunch!
Always my favorite for food, service and ambiance! Chef Michael continues to impress every time he changes the menu! Lucky to have Cardinal Bistro in our town!
Had a lovely brunch with my father and boyfriend, I used to work in fine dining in Philadelphia so getting that same level of exceptional service you expect when going to a super fancy place found in a small beach town bistro-was so refreshing. I'll definitely be coming back whenever I'm in town.
This family owned restaurant should not be missed. The chef is outstanding and the staff are just as good!
Amazing food , amazing service, great atmosphere, everyone in my group loved it
Delicious food. Great atmosphere. I highly recommend.
Cardinal Bistro is predictably excellent. The food, the welcoming staff - really everything. It is always wonderful to taste the new creations by Chef Michael. His newest version of Brussels Sprouts is a must to try, even if you think you don’t like Brussels Sprouts.
We have had several great dinners at Cardinal Bistro.
Brunch is every bit as good. Food is excellent.
The food at Cardinal Bistro is always outstanding. Each visit there are new choices of appetizers and entree’s. Everyone in our party thought everything was exceptional. The service was welcoming and attentive, the pace was excellent.
We always love eating and don’t mind the slight tweaks in preparation and presentation. The staff is always very friendly and the restaurant is very clean.
My husband and I have found our new favorite restaurant! We found our experience to be spectacular; from the amazing customer service to the atmosphere to, of course, the absolutely delicious food! We ordered the gnocchi with black truffle sauce as a starter and were blown away! As a huge gnocchi fan, I can honestly say that these are the best gnocchis I have ever had. They 100% melt in your mouth and we learned that they are made with pastry rather than potatoes- they are a MUST try!! I also need to mention that the fried bread and dipping sauce that is provided to each table is simply out of this world. Next, we ordered the lobster and the halibut for our entrees and found both dishes to be outstanding. We followed up with the oatmeal crust cake for dessert, and it proved to be just as addicting as described by the attentive and personable owner. The price point is definitely on the higher side, but believe me, it is worth every penny! You need to check this place out! We will be back again very soon and we can't wait!
Chef is truly talented! Creating visual and tasteful dishes
I consider this restaurant to be the best on the island, bar none. The food is superb, the service impeccable, and the noise level very tolerable. The menu changes so often that is is rare to have the same thing twice. I couldn't recommend this restaurant more highly.
Fantastic brunch. Eggs and bacon are superb. Highly recommend. For brunch, as well as dinner.
Great little family run place with interesting and varied menu
We had a wonderful dining experience. My wife and I each selected the four course Prix Fix menu, she selected the From, The Sea, and I went with From The Farm. Each course was fantastic. We have been a patron since its opening, and Chef Michael Brennan has nailed it. The quality, freshness, flavor, and taste sensations rival any top restaurant in NYC, and we are lucky to have him local to us in Ventnor.
One o the best restaurants I have been to in the Atlqjtic City area. The sauces were incredible, service amazing, and the father and.son team are so nice. Had bnb the 5 course seafood dinner. Unbelievable. Cant wait to go back.
Our second time to the Cardinal Bistro. Did not disappoint. Very unique and very delicious. The four of us choose three different dishes and they all were great. A must try!
Outstanding! It is “local” and it is a “gem” but it is much more than a “local gem.” We have eaten here frequently and always been very pleased. Can’t recommend it highly enough!
intersting menu. outstanding service
Food is phenomenal 👌. Clearly there is great care taken by the chef when creating these unique dishes.
Philly foodie experience on the Jersey shore. Pricey but worth it for a special occasion. Service was friendly and extremely attentive , food creative and delicious. Seafood tasting menu is a relatively good value.
The food was delicious, servers were fantastic. We had a great meal with friends.
We had an absolutely perfect brunch at Cardinal Bistro. The avocado toast is fantastic. The service was excellent and the decor is so charming. A true gem.
The New Year's Eve dinner was spectacular! I highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for quality, finesse and amazing taste!
Even on New Year's Eve, Cardinal Bistro did not disappoint. On a night when most restaurants struggle, Cardinal Bistro kept up its usual high standards with a tasting menu that was creative and first-rate, as well as being a reasonable value. Kudos all the way around for one of the South Jersey shore's best restaurants!
Outstanding service and food! Best gnocchi we have ever had.
Cardinal Bistro is a wonderful gem in Ventnor NJ.
Sage, Tom, and the rest of the staff were excellent. The food was outstanding and we enjoyed our night out. We'll definitely be going back and would recommend it to anyone.
The wait between courses was too long and both of the meals when served were not hot. Wait staff was friendly and responsive but they did not ask how our food came out until the meal was almost over. The food was tasty and would probably give them one more try.
Delicious farm to table fresh food with interesting flavor and combinations of vegetables and sauces. Highly recommend the restaurant. Wait staff friendly and knowledgeable about dishes.
Chef Michael sure knows what he’s doing! Went for brunch, had eggs Benedict with bacon and my wife had eggs Benedict with crab. Everything was fresh, hot, and very tasteful. Service was outstanding, we were treated like we were family.Great job Cardinal Bistro!
