This is almost our default restaurant whenever we're asked for a recommendation near the Cleveland Park Metro. In the last several years we've been here more times than all of the other ones in the immediate vicinity put together. The menu's not extensive, but always has interesting items, and the food is reliably excellent time after time. Casually elegant, the... More

The ambience was great and service excellent. Scallops are highly recommended as are the appetizers of Brussels sprouts and fried curried chick peas. Their wine pours are generous and the prices very reasonable for this upscale restaurant in Cleveland Park. Close to metro don't bother driving the walk is lovely.

Went to Ardeo last week with my wife and 22 year-old son and we had an excellent experience. It is a nice place in Cleveland Park and while there are not any "outdoor" tables (or there weren't then) it has windows which make adjacent tables kind of outdoorsy. The service was attentive but unobtrusive We got pizza, brussel sprouts, octopus,... More

The oddly named Ardeo/Bardeo is a fun place for drinks and small plates in Cleveland Park. The interior is modern and dark; a relaxing setting for good drinks and food. The wine menu is extensive, as you would expect. There is also a good selection of beers and tasty cocktails. There are several entrees on the menu, but the small... More

Based on a recommendation I went to a restaurant near the Cleveland Metro (Red Line) named Ardeo/Bardeo. Kelly, the girl tending the bar explained that it used to be two different restaurants divided by a wall, one was a bit more upscale, the other a bit more popular. They took out the wall and the two bars became a large... More

I came here for an after work cocktail. Too many people, and terrible service ensued. They had a huge party on the other side of the bar, but the problem is, they should have closed their doors because there were too many people in that place.

We went with friends and got small plates, pizza, and a good bottle of wine. The menu is upscale with popular small plate dishes: grilled octopus, chicken liver pate, etc. For what it was, the price was a pretty good value. We had a round of drinks and a bottle of wine and the bill was about $50 per person... More

As soon as you enter, the interesting ambiance invites you, as well as the pleasant hostess. The menu includes snacks and small plates so grazing is an option. But the creative mains are hard to pass up. And they are as delicious as they sound. Speaking of sound, it is not too loud for a refreshing change.

I was looking for someplace different for brunch and found this lovely place for $27 Unlimited Mimosas and one appetizer and entree. Everything was absolutely perfect from the service from Aurora to the 5 star food. Definitely a must try. Deviled eggs, Apple and Sweet Potato soup are a must try.

The restaurant is a pleasant place to eat-- clean lines, tables nicely spaced so that noise levels are fine. Service is good, but the kitchen takes a long time to prepare the food, and seems to have trouble with timing. There were three of us, and we ordered three disparate things, pizza, eal papardelle, and chicken pot pie. I think... More
