The service was weird. We arrived a few minutes early for our reservation and there was no host available and the bartender was busy.

Awesome small plates. Chef has a great taste of what works. The drinks are not your typical “craft cocktails “, they are several notches up from what you find elsewhere.

Seriously... who would have thought that beet juice, mezcal, and some other ingredients would taste so good. I know it sounds strange, but even my wife who hates beets and has an aversion to tequila loved it.

Service is on par with much more expensive restaurant. Wait staff are friendly and very knowledgeable about the drinks, food and ingredients. Kudos to the management for taking the time to teach them about the menu as well as tasting it. It really made the experience feel like a friend was recommending items on the menu. The staff was always paying attention, and we didn’t need wait for anything.

We enjoy good food, so for us going out for dinner is the event of the night. They did not try to push us out or hurry us. It was a fun, relaxing night where we made new friends, ate phenomenal food, and tasted nice wines and cocktails.

PS. Their drinks program is really well thought out. The wines paired wonderfully with their food, and were very reasonably priced. The cocktails are truly inspired. John who creates them is knowledgeable and passionate about what he does.

Our group had quite a selection from the menu and everything was delicious. I just wish it was a little closer to where we live but I'm sure we'll be back!

We went on a Monday night. There were just a few people working the restaurant but you'd never know it because the service was just great. The recommendation of the monk fish was spot on. This was the second time I've gone there and will be back soon. Great restaurant.

Two of us ordered four appetizers. Drinks came out after first two appetizers. Brussels sprouts were excellent. Lamb meatballs were inedible. Buratta was flavorless. Mussels were fishy.

My boyfriend took me here for my birthday and we really enjoyed it! Red sangria is delicious, the burrata and bacon slab flatbread were amazing!! Meat and cheese board was very tasty, but the lamb meatballs were tasteless and we could have done without them. We’ll definitely be back!

I chose Cerdo to host out-of-town friends who enjoy eating out as much as we do. The location was good and the menu looked attractive. Sadly, our entire meal was underwhelming. In an area with as many great restaurants as we have, I'm not sure why Cerdo is full on a Saturday night. We weren't aware it was the last night of restaurant week, so that could have had something to do with it; maybe the kitchen staff were bored.
The positives: the services was very good, attentive and friendly; the patio was quiet, intimate and lovely. Wine was delicious and well-priced.
The negatives: The food. We ordered from the three-course restaurant week menu; the full a la carte menu was not an option. I had been on the website only hours earlier and hadn't seen anything about a limited menu during restaurant week, so I was disappointed. My zucchini soup was nicely presented and would have been delicious, had it not been so terribly oversalted, I couldn't eat it. The jamon manchego croquettes were not as imagined; they were giant balls of melted cheese with no visible jamon. My strip steak, ordered medium rare, arrived very well done. It also arrived, as is popular these days, on a plank. However, the plank wasn't sufficiently thick to keep from sliding when I cut my meat. The broccoli rabe had large chunks of what looked and tasted like raw garlic and I was given such a small serving of the shoestring potatoes that I can't tell you how they tasted. The three desserts were all left unfinished, which should really tell you something. The zucchini cake was overly spiced and given a huge covering of a pistachio honey frosting of some kind. Sickly sweet. The lemon cannoli gelato had no discernible lemon flavor. Who leaves gelato uneaten? We did. And the pumpkin budino had to be one of the least successful desserts I've had in years. It was gelatinous, had the same flavor profile as the over-spiced zucchini cake, and also had an unusual and highly unappealing texture. One bite only.

Went here with another couple. First visit. My wife and I had diver scallops, very nice. The other couple ordered steak and broccoli rabe, and both of their dishes arrived cold and had to be sent back. Recooked meal was fine, but my wife and I finished our dinner before their meals were served. Both commented that the food was excellent. It server Jennie was terrific and worked with kitchen and manager to resolve, so the mistake was unfortunate. I was a bit surprised that nothing was done to comp items on our check, offer coffee, etc. We didn't ask, but it would have been smart to do that so our friends would return.

I want to say that I liked it more but it was just okay for me. The appetizer was okay but nothing special as it was a chopped salad. The entree was butter poached shrimp with polenta and creamed corn. The corn was not very warm and the shrimp were a tad overcooked. Overall, the dish didn't have too much flavor. The dessert was the winner for me. It was a pumpkin budino and tasted absolutely amazing. The whole dinner was 2 hours long which was a bit long for my liking and the restaurant is very loud. It was hard to talk to my friends.

The food was imaginative and very tasty, but it was much too loud there . Cerdo can’t decide if it’s a bar or restaurant, I think. The music was very loud and so the smallish group of patrons had to talk loudly to hear each other. As a result, we struggled to even hear our delightful server. It’s a nice spot, the parking is free, and the food is great, so if you don’t want to talk to your wife/friends/date, this is a great spot!

Our server was attentive and helpful. The highlights were the croquettes and the mushroom flattie. The Brussels sprouts weren’t bad but I’ve had better (Ripplewood). The place was dead so it wasn't very lively.

Great server who was attentive and friendly. Very nice menu with unique items. Ambiance is a cool vibe, warm and inviting. The shrimp with risotto was good- sauce a bit heavy. The flatbread with sweet potato was yummy. The burgers, Brussels sprouts and lamb meatballs were fantastic!

We had a fabulous dinner at Bar Lucca back in June and wanted to try out Cerdo. And let me tell you, I’m so glad we did. The ambiance and decor are warm and inviting. Our server Maria professional, yet warm and friendly. We decided there was so much we wanted to try that we would try the Chef’s Tasting Menu. We talked with Maria about what we liked and she and the chef provided us with a deliciously memorable meal!
We started out with a charcuterie tray of Prosciutto , Serrano ham, Manchego cheese, olives, crostini and savory/sweet spreads. Our next course was a chopped salad with spring mix, crispy chic peas, Gorgonzola crumbles, and Serrano Ham with a lite vinaigrette. Our next course was Burratta on a crostini with fig and arugula and also a flatbread with bacon slab and fried Brussel sprouts. The Burratta was so creamy and flavorful. Omgosh the flatbread was thin with fresh ricotta and grueyer, bacon slab and Brussel sprouts, well everything is yummy with bacon isn’t it?? Our main course was pasta with a homemade Ragu and also the pork loin in a luscious chipotle sweet potato purée. And if this wasn’t enough we had desert! A luscious lemon cannoli ice cream and churros with a passion fruit - white chocolate dipping sauce. Sooo good!! Can you say food coma?? It was a wonderful Mediterranean inspired menu influenced by Barcelona and Rome. Every bite was delicious 😋

Cerdo is an adorable restaurant conveniently located in Conshy - really great for small plates and shareable items and a nice drink! They don’t have a huge menu so it may not be the best option for a picky guest. Great ambience and service!

We ate at the bar and our server/bartender Maria was fantastic and other working were very attentive. The food was fine. That being said a couple of negatives: The time it took for our apps and entrees to arrive was excessive..not that it matters but restaurant was not super crowded. Also, while we like a lively atmosphere the noise level was close to deafening.

Very nice tapas restaurant in heart of Conshohocken. Went for a business meeting and we shared a variety of tapas dishes. All were very good. Server was friendly and attentive. Interior design is inviting and they have a nice bar. They also have meat and cheese plates plus a nice selection of wines ... great for an evening out.
