We had many choices to have a steak in Toronto, and our decision process came down to: at most a $$$ cost rating, good reviews, and walking distance from our hotel. Bardi's isn't not a large restaurant, but the food was prepared very well. French onion soup, Caesar salad, fillet mignon, and NY strip. Add a couple of cocktails and... More

went to dinner at Bardi's after working with our clients. it was decent but not out of this world. seemed a little expensive for what we ordered but it was still a good night. we had a chance to relax have steaks and drinks so how bad it that really be. i would return if i'm in the area again.

This is a restaurant for a special night out with old style service in a warm club like atmosphere. They are celebrating their 50th anniversary and the quality of the food and service tells you why. We had the beef Bourguignon and the shish kebab and they were cooked to perfection. Their speciality cheese garlic toast was also delicious as... More

We were completely blown away by the flavor of the steaks, the incredible service & the atmosphere!! We ate on a Thursday night & were about the only table being served. This is one of the very best steaks I have ever eaten!! Totally delightful experience!!

We just ate an amazing meal at Bardi's. I had the filet mignon, my mom had the surf and turn and my aunt had the scallops and all 3 dishes were absolutely delicious. The steaks were cooked to perfection, so were the scallops and the sauces that accompanied our respective meals were rich and flavorful. I also love that they... More

Our dinner at Bardi's was incredible! My lover (a local and serious steak eater) had been there many times and wanted to share this local favorite with me. We were lucky enough to go on an evening when this little place was not too crowded. I had the Steak Diane which is now one of my favorite steak experiences of... More

Was part of a group and ordered the shrimp starter (expensive for 3 shrimp) but the fillet was magnificent - one of the best steaks I have had in ages. My fellow diners mostly had french onion soup and were well satisfied. All had steaks, varying in size and cuts, and all were highly complimentary. Definitely on the expensive side,... More

Skip the appetizers as the steak portions are generous. I had the 9oz fillet mignon and it was more than enough for dinner. Accompanied by the pepper sauce and mushrooms, it was excellent! Great advice to have a matching wine, the service was perfect. Highly recommended

My husband and I rarely go to Toronto anymore - however we stayed overnight last week for hotel and show and visited Bardi's for dinner. The service was first class and the steak mouthwatering! It will stay in my memory for a long time. The Caesar salad left a bit wanting, didn't seem homemade. House wine (merlot) was also tasty,... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
