This place has an elegant selection of cocktails and tapas and a true joy for any food lover, but my only negative comment would be in reference to service. While our waitress was extremely knowledgeable and engaging, we inevitably felt rushed because she would not stop hovering. People do not come to this types of restaurants to eat, but rather...

Really creative dishes. Good presentation. Wait staff isn't working as a team. This is their biggest weakness. Too bad, because the dishes are really good. Management needs to take everyone to an outing that will help them with team building. Come on guys, don't work against each other, work together so that your new customers want to come back instead... More

Tapas dishes are very creative and delicious. Drinks are also yummy with creative names and ingredients. This is our 2nd time here and we had to ask the manager if a server was ever going to come to even say hello. It reminded us why it's been a couple of months since we were here last. They need to improve... More

I have been here twice, once with one companion and once with a small group. It is great with a group becuase it's fun to share. The variety is excellent, and everything was well-prepared, with a sense of humor and a nod to variety. I will definitely be back; the price is the only obstacle.

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.
