The food was extraordinary! A delicious array of small plates. The portion sizes make it convenient to share samples. The carpaccio was especially nice because you are provided a heating device to brown the raw meat if you choose. The service was superb; thoughtful, attentive and cheerful. We enjoyed our meal from beginning to the end.

Primarily a tapas style restaurant, Bardo offers a great variety of tasty dishes that you won't find just anywhere. We tried several of them, and all were delicious! Bartender Eve recommended a Malbec that was absolutely wonderful! Excellent dining experience!

I loved the ambiance of Bardo's. The firepit at the waiting area is a very nice touch. Also, the food was delicious and served promptly. The staff was very friendly.

We have been going there for years. Some of my friends say it is too pricey but I love it. The chef makes his humus duo different daily so it is always a treat. Same with the sherbet. I guess it depends on what fruits are available that day. He usually makes three sherbets and they are to die for.

Been a few times now; love the menu and the depth of choices, love the wine list. Enjoyed most of what I've tried there with a couple exceptions. Last visit had a couple disappointments. Lamb chops were considerably under cooked, to the point one of three was cold raw. Took 15 minutes to get it back in an oven that... More

First off this is a tapas place so the portions are small. That said, the food is excellent for the most part. I was slightly disappointed in the wasabi mashed potatoes,the flavor profile was anemic, not bad just wimpy. They have a desert called Dim Sum Doughnuts that is worth a trip just to try them. Service was excellent and... More

Visited Bardo on a busy Saturday night was astonished (and that's not a word I use freely) at the quality of the food. Absolutely stunningly presented and prepared plates representing a myriad of cultures and foodways. The drinks were amazing as well, and the service was PERFECT.

One of my favorite places for a large group. This is a place for sharing dishes. There are too many good dishes to describe! Go with a group and start ordering! Also try some of the amazing cocktails. Be sure to save room for dessert. The chocolate donuts with dipping sauce are sinful
