Cardinale Ratings and Reviews
Restaurant was crowded. Waiter more interested in serving the large table than a table for two. Had linguini with seafood, and he didn’t bring a bowl or plate to put shells, had to put on table. Ordered bread and it came after the meal (although they did take it off the bill). Food was lukewarm and had sat too long under the heating lamp. Overall disappointing meal and service.
Went for a lunch on a Friday. Beautiful but small inside, a patio opens in the summer I presume.
Ordered a couple drinks, which were both interesting and tasty.
The food was good overall, I had the brisket meatball sandwich which was good but a bit under seasoned. My friend ordered the deli sandwich and enjoyed.
Would go back.
I decided to bring a friend from out of town to Cardinale for supper because of the reviews. I honestly think they must have been written by friends and family of the owners and management. The service was phenomenal and we enjoyed a fabulous bottle of wine advised by a helpful Sommelier. The food was good, but nothing special. However, the menu is sparse, with only two main entrées to choose from - snapper (it said halibut on the menu but was actually snapper) and veal. The prices are incredibly high, the atmosphere is very casual and they play their music quite loud. Given the limited menu, lack of ambience and high prices I would not recommend this restaurant.
Cocktails were amazing, service was good but some of the food lacked. The POLPETTE was dry, I really enjoy the SUPPLI, and the TORTIGLIONI... salty salty salty! I don’t love a lot of salt so I may be biased. I would try this place again though.
Service was excellent and so was the food. We shared the salt baked prawns as and appetizer and they were stellar. We each had a pasta and both were very good and worth the price. The cocktails are also excellent. The by the glass wine is a little over priced though so I would go with a cocktail.
Loved our experience! The food and cocktails were great but the service even better. With so many great restaurants in the city now, you have to work hard and be on top of your game, and you could tell that they were. Our server and the manager were attentive and did what they could to ensure we left satisfied.
A quaint spot tucked between the Casino and Stampede park. Parking is available across the street. One guest's seafood was overdone on her pasta and the pasta portions are quite small (half and full sizes) but generally quite tasty. The lunch sandwich with soup or salad was good.
Not the best value for your $$ but i would try it again.
Great experience from the moment we walked in the door! Hostess was welcoming, server was patient as it took us a while to decide what to have since it all looked so good. We had fun chatting with the manager and he made sure we were well looked after, and our water glasses never went empty! Definitely coming back to try different dishes, and bringing more friends!
Overall everything was great. The food was fantastic, the service was friendly and knowledgeable, and the décor is well on it's way to becoming an extremely cozy spot (could use some warm artwork and possible some more greenery).
Music was fine, but I do wish it was a little louder so that the tables next to us couldn't hear our conversation. It was quite easy to eavesdrop without intending to, and I think most people would prefer to be able to speak without whispering and not be overheard.
Looking forward to a full plate of the pappardelle soon!
