The Bardo is a small Asian Fusion tapas restaurant that has a very extensive selection of dishes that won't disappoint. There is a bar at the entrance and the dining room has 10 or 12 tables. The service is very good with knowledgeable waiters standing by that will be glad to help you select from their various levels of offered... More

What is not to like about this comfy, trendy little place!? I have been several times, and have to say that the calamari is a MUST TRY! It is the best I have ever had! I always the the Dim Sum One Dollar Chicken Dinner (hard boiled egg with sauces) I am not sure why but I love it. Don't... More

I love to go to Bardo with my girlfriends and share such amazing dishes!!! They are always full of different flavors, spices, and spins on traditional dishes. I can't say enough good things about the Beef Carpaccio and eggplant fries!!!!

I have been wanting to try this place for a while after reading about it in the newspaper. This is a menage-a-tois of trendy bar with great drinks, Chinese Dim-Sum and Tapas. I will repeat. The service was wonderful, our server was very attentive but not over doing it. The atmosphere was nice. We went on a busy Friday night... More

Food was amazing! Service was very good. So cool being able to try many different dishes and share. We took our kids and they enjoyed as well. They liked the nascar satay (corndog) and the dim sum doughnuts. Yum! coctails were really food with one exception. Don't try the kim chee cocktail. I did...tasted like pickle brine...they agreed and took... More

We had the edamame, pei mussels, potato-wrapped salmon, lobster tempura, wagyu carpaccio, and the dessert bento along with a couple of cocktails and beers the waiter, josh, suggested. The service was very attentive and friendly ... Can't wait to go back!

I have to say, the barmaid did a nice pour for our cocktails, but the price reflected as much. I wish I could say that the food was as exciting as the menu, maybe it was just an off night but I cannot say that any of the several items we ordered was good. I did not know that wagyu... More

Dinner and drinks with two friends. It was our first time at Bardo but definitely not the last. The ambiance was casual without being too relaxed. The wait staff were extremely helpful making suggestions off the menu and from the bar. The apps were perfect - had steak tartar, the hummus plate, and fried avocado. Main courses were fish tacos...

This is an Asian fusion tapas bar, with a very interesting menu of "small plates" and rather impressive cocktails as well. The food was mostly excellent, although some dishes were very spicy. Good if you like it hot. It was really fun to sit with a group and order food in rounds, or levels as they list them on the... More
