We have been going to Sardi's for years and I have never had a bad experience. The food is always cooked to perfection and I can not believe the quality for the price (£10 for 2 course lunch!) Very friendly staff and lovely atmosphere. Cannot recommend enough.

Our favourite restaurant ever. Never ever disappointed. Staff are fantastic and food is amazing. When eating out in Darlington we would not eat anywhere else. If you haven't tried it, then do, you will not be disappointed.

This is a restaurant that my family and I visit as regularly as we can, given that we do not live in the Darlington area. There has never been an occasion when the meal has been less than simply superb. The quality of the food, choice of dishes and service all excellent and the prices are very reasonable.

Our friends kindly took us there for a Saturday meal out.They had often mentioned eating there over the past twenty five years, so our expectations were high. It really lived up to what they had told us, really nice food,cooked to order and fab friendly service. Well worth a visit. Wish it was in Oadby!

I have regularly visited the restaurant over many years whilst working in Darlington usually with work colleagues and at lunchtime as I live in Chester le Street and have never been disappointed with either the quality of food or service. Although retired for almost 2 years I still return regularly to this superb eatery to meet up with ex colleagues... More

Had not booked but there was plenty of tables in the lower area. Bread was immediately brought over and we ordered drinks. We took time to peruse the menu, I had the pan fried scallops and they were very good,wife had the pate. Main course the wife had steak done to perfection, I had the ostrich and it was succulent...

We arrived with a party of eight men....they looked after us so well and the food was up to its normal excellent standard. The service was a bit slow, but, all eight of us were served together with hot food and loads of vegetables.
