Cerdo has been on my list of go-to places in Conshohocken for some time. We finally made time to visit and it did not disappoint. We started off with two appetizers: jamon croquettes and lamb meatballs. I love lamb, but never have I had the meat in the form of a meatball. It was delicious. The texture was much softer than beef, veal or turkey meatballs and it had a nice aroma to it. The croquettes were also delicious. They were crunchy on the outside and soft of the inside.

For our main course, I ordered the wild boar burger and my wife ordered the scallops. The boar burger is not all boar. It's actually ground boar, beef and bacon. Yes, ground bacon. It was topped with blue cheese, caramelized bacon (yes, more bacon...yum!), fried shallots and served on a very soft poppy seed brioche bun. The burger was amazing. It was so juicy. I had mine cooked medium well and it was perfect. My mouth is watering just writing this review.

My wife's scallops were also very delicious. Thankfully, she shared. Cerdo was not cheap with the scallops, which were sprinkled with parmesan and sat on top of butternut squash and risotto with a sweet potato sauce.

Aside from the good food, our server was very nice. I made a reservation the night before and we were seated in a cozy corner near the windows. It was actually quite nice. I definitely plan to return again. There's a number of items on the menu that I'd like to try.

Tables were nicely spaced upstairs and we didnt feel like we were eating on top of the people next to us. Food was amazing, especially the arancini. The drinks were not weak which we loved. All of the staff were attentive. The prices are reasonable considering how great the food is. We will be back and look forward to exploring the small plates menu more!

This was a family lunch. The restaurant was nearly empty when we arrived around 12:30 but filled up nicely during our meal. The food was good, portions fairly large. Service was friendly and efficient. I can't wait to return.

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.

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.
