Wonderful food and service.
Everything was fantastic from start to finish. Chef Michael’s attention to detail was fantastically and every course was better than the last. We will be back.
One of my favorite, if not my favorite, restaurant. The food is outstanding. The ambiance is comfortable. The wait staff is unbelievably accomodating and friendly. The owner, Thomas, is always there to make sure you have a good dining experience. Truly worth the drive to the Jersey shore. Living there makes it even better.
Love the food the atmosphere and what a great staff.
The fixed price 3 course menu is a great value. Food was delicious. Loved the Brussels sprouts and flourless chocolate cake.
What a great meal experience. We were the only table seated in the place. (Slow winter night) We are adventurous eaters so we opted to let the chef design a meal for us. We had smoked chef salad. It was delicious, I had never had anything smoked under a dome before. Our appetizer was a house-made fettuccine with duck confit. It was delicious and a nice departure from traditional fettuccine carbonara. The entrees we had were day scallops over couscous and the duck breast cooked perfectly medium with beets, blackberries and a beautifully reduced sauce. We also had a deconstructed clam chowder soup. A delicious potato cake clams and cream soup base poured over the side. The flourless chocolate cake was amazing. I can also not say enough good things about our server Quay who told us about all of the menu items he had sampled and made some great recommendations. Truly a professional and very helpful. I will definitely be back to eat at Cardinal Bistro.
We had an exceptional evening at Cardinal Bistro! Chef Michael was outstanding! Our server, Quay, made our experience even better. Thank you Cardinal Bistro for giving us all the ingredients for a fantastic dinner with friends.
Consistently outstanding food as well as service. I consider this restaurant one of the best in the Atlantic City area.
The bistro was broken tonight
My boyfriend and I came in for brunch and the meal was ok. We were greeted immediately which was nice and taken to a table by the window. As we sat down we noticed crumbs on the chairs and windowsill, as well as under the table and the other tables around us. We couldn’t help but to think what the kitchen might have looked as far as cleanliness/neatness. The complimentary beignets were a nice touch, but weren’t cooked all the way, still had raw dough inside. The avocado toast was presented nicely, but was lacking with seasoning. The french toast wasn’t really anything special, it could’ve been served warmer and the mascarpone could’ve been a bit sweeter and smoother. The butter given with the dish looked like it was used by another table( barely any served and badly presented) and was given so much syrup it was overflowing from the demitasse. The ambiance was different, the server stations in view to the guests and we watched the man who greeted us sitting at one of the tables working on his laptop eating bread. Not sure if we would return.
absolutely terrific highly recommend food is wonderful
Incredible it’s such a wonderful treat to be able to enjoy a culinary adventure for lunch. The food and atmosphere are the best. Great value and always changing menu with locally sourced products. Love being able to enjoy either Lunch or Dinner here.
I continue to dine here on a regular basis and every time I go back I am simply amazed that they continue to surprise us with new dishes that are out of this world!!!
Wonderful as always!
This was our 4th or 5th visit to Cardinal Bistro. As always, we received a warm greeting and were seated immediately. We ordered the beet salad and roasted butternut squash agnolotti. Both were very good. My wife had the black sea bass and I had the scallops, and both were perfectly prepared. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and look forward to returning.
