Bardi's Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews

Bardi's is a classic "madmen" era steak house. Food is tremendous, although to be honest, I've never actually considered eating anything but steak - I mean, why would you? Most of the staff have been there for as long as I can remember, and they are beyond professional.
My son and I were coming downtown (from Guelph) for a basketball game, and we got caught in traffic. They honoured our reservation, in spite of being an hour late, and rushed our meal through the kitchen, so we wouldn't be late for the game.
I would (have) recommend Bardi's to anyone who will listen.

Bardi's has been our place to go for a great steak dinner. We've been coming here for years and have always had a great meal! The service is great and the wait staff are very knowledgeable. You can't go wrong here!

This steak house is totally overpriced. Food was good and not close to being worth $59 for a filet. Went on a night that the Leafs were playing and thus subject to an overpriced limited menu. Garlic cheesetoast for $8.50??

I was at the Toronto Bardi's restaurant on Saturday night. It is the location beside the Royal York Hotel. The service was excellent and the food was phenomenal. It was literally the best steak I have ever eaten in my entire life!! I had the French Onion Soup, Brussel sprouts with Pancetta, the filet mignon and a side order of onion rings. I really wanted to try the dessert, but had no more room since I ordered many appetizers. (the appetizers were shared with my husband). He also had the filet mignon and said that he's never had better steak. Thank you!!!

On my second visit to Toronto this restaurant was suggested by the Concierge at my hotel when I asked for an upscale steak place nearby. Great central location close to all of the tourist stuff as well as the financial district. Very nice decor and ambience, great staff, very friendly and informative. Wine list was amazing and food was outstanding. I had the bone-in rib eye and my date had the Sea Bass. Both were well above average in taste and preparation. After dinner we chatted with the Manager for quite a while past closing time and enjoyed it all immensely. Best meal we had while in Toronto, and the first place I'll eat next time I'm in town.

My husband ordered the 20 0z bone-in rib steak and was very happy with his choice. I had the boef bourginon and it tasted very tomato-y. as if it had not been simmered on the stove long enough to truly blend all the flavors. The feta cheese on my tomato salad beforehand was excellent, as was the bread that was brought out to our table. Service was a bit slow, especially given the fact that it was a very quiet evening.

We held a business lunch / going away special occasion at Bardi's today. It was nothing short of fantastic. The food was delicious and well-priced, the ambiance was wonderful as we had the second floor and a great table, not noisy, extremely comfortable seating and the staff was the best. Very friendly, experienced and professional. I recommend Bardi's for executive business meetings, as well as personal special occasions.

Went there for a dinner, and to try the steak since we like to try different steak houses.
This place certainly is old-school; the ambiance is nothing really special, though.
The steak however was quite tasty. But the salads especially the caesar were lackluster--tasted like store-bought fare, and not the kind you get at the finer steak houses where they prepare the dressing in front of you.
I might return--but I wouldn't go out of my way. For a bit more than this pricing you can go to Hy's where the ambiance, salad and service is much better. Or for even a bit more you can go to the king, Jacob & Co.
Delicious food and wonderful service!
My husband and I would definitely return to Bardi's again! We had an absolutely delicious meal from start to finish, and the service was excellent. Our server Sal was very attentive and had great tableside manner. :) Thank you Bardi's!
Not a good value
I asked the waiter for their "signature steak" and he told me it was the New York. I ordered it and it was disappointing to be honest. There was nothing extraordinary about the steak, how it was prepared, etc. Not a good value for the price. I have had a New York at The Keg many times and it is a better steak for better price.
The NY Strip steak is very good. It was cooked to perfection, and tasted very good. We weren't overly impressed with the demeanor of the waiters, they barely spoke. We had to ask for water halfway through the meal, to me when you are paying over $50 bucks a meal you shouldn't have to do that. The bread at the beginning could have been better, reminded me of heated up Aunt Millies or something. The place could use a renovation also...... but the steak WAS good.
Great steaks and server was attentive. Expensive!
Though the steaks were delicious and cooked to our preference, I could not afford to eat at Bardi's for other than special occasions once per year. AIso, I am celiac, and I don't believe the server knew what that meant. Educating servers on dietary restrictions should be part of a restaurant's responsibility to its patrons.
It is like an 80's steakhouse but we are in 2016
Food is salty. The quality of food dose not worth the price. We ordered medium rare sirloins but it turned out medium well. The fries are salty and soggy. The garlic bread is made of cheap toast. I would like to suggest owners and the chef should go explore other restaurants and see how do they make good steak.
Steak was AWESOME!
The service was excellent. Steak was cooked to perfection - nothing missing when it was brought to the table. Our party of 3 was delighted with everything and will definitely go back next time we are in Toronto. The steak melted in your mouth.
