    Busy Mothers Day. Wonderful to have a delicious meal both healthy and satisfying. We enjoyed the Burrata, and the Skinny fries, pizzas and three different salads with salmon, steak and chicken. Guilt free. Did order excellent cocktails as well and cappuccino. Not fond of the olive oil cake… too simlar to a muffin

    Made a reservation to make sure we had a table as we had an event afterwards. Easily brought up the reservation although the time 5:00pm Friday night, there were plenty of tables open. Food was fabulous had the feature pasta. Service was great, always made sure we were taken care of without causing issues with our conversation.

    Good food. Slow service. We didn’t receive our entire order- server forgot. We were asked to leave after 1 hour and 45 minutes because our table was booked. We would’ve been finished earlier had it not been for the extremely slow service. Disappointed and won’t be returning.

    Great Sunday brunch. Lots of options to choose from. Portions on the al la cart are small but great so you can choose to try multiple items from the made to order menu and get more of what you do like, once you've tried it. Will definitely come again. Cute date brunch or girls/group brunch.

    We've been to this location many times and have always had a very pleasant experience. Saturday was a completely different restaurant, and we were glad it wasn't our first time as we probably would have second thoughts about returning. Our server was completely disconnected from our table. As soon as we were seated she came to take our order for drinks (I was still taking my coat off). We ordered our meal (arugula fennel salad had almost no fennel in it this time). We waited to tell her but ended up eating it because she didn't come back after a long wait. When our meal arrived (after an incorrect meal, and after another long wait) it was dry and overcooked, and barely warm, and she forgot about the side dish we had ordered. The table next to us was told about the specials for the evening. We weren't asked if we needed anything or how everything was etc. We were not offered any more drinks, instead just the bill in her hand as she asked if we wanted any dessert... terrible experience and one of those rare occasions where we didn't even leave a tip. Very disappointing but glad this wasn't our first visit.

    My husband and I went for dinner at Bardo Bread Bar on James St. N. before the concert we were attending at Hamilton Place. This is a wonderful restaurant with great ambiance and attentive service. Our food was really, really good! I had the soup of the day (tomato and roasted red pepper) which came with a generous slice of fresh white bread with butter. It was creamy and rich, truly delicious. For my main, I had the grain bowl, which was so much more than just a bowl of grain! It features roasted chick peas, quinoa, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, sweet potato, soft boiled egg, and a protein of choice, I chose tempeh. It also had a wonderful maple tahini dressing. My husband also had the soup of the day with the miso mushroom risotto. This was perfectly cooked and delicious, his only complaint was that it was a little on the salty side for his taste. We also enjoyed a latte and dessert, hubby had the affogato and I had the feature pie which was peach/blueberry. Both were excellent! We will definitely be coming back to Bardo Bread Bar

    Far too noisy and too close to tables next to you. Server was great, food and wine was good. I’d like to see more gluten free options on the menu. Don’t understand the name change, I thought James Bardo was the manager or something when my reservation was confirmed by email.

    Our most recent visit to Bread Bar James (now bafflingly rebranded as Bardo) was for the Sunday brunch, which is a great favorite for our family. An a la carte menu of delightful small plate brunch dishes and beyond, coupled with a marvelous selection on the buffet makes for a delicious treat. It is not cheap, but it is definitely worth it.

    I really enjoy this restaurant! The brunch is fantastic and the food is excellent. I have been there twice and the first time was over the top with service and quality of the food. The second time, They appeared to be busy and a bit understaffed so we didn’t always receive our food as requested.

    We were a bit disappointed. I ordered grain bowl and it was not worth the price. The roasted veggies and sweet potatoes were cold. Chicken wasn’t grilled, looked boiled or steamed, no flavour, and barely any salad. I’ve had more lettuce as a dude than there was in my main. Burger was average. Service and ambiance was excellent .

    Very odd experience. Made a reservation far in advance. Upon arrival was told by staff that “just a heads up but you need to be done by 7:30 because we need this table for the next reservation.” Fair enough… but time frame for being there is heavily dictated by speed of YOUR service. We ordered an appetizer and it was swept off our table before we’d finished it. Waited a while for the main course, but my pizza was outstanding. My friend said her Mac n cheese was awful. Noodles were hard and pasta was dry—she only ate a few bites. Waitress didn’t check in at all/ didn’t seem to care that the food was hardly touched. Clearly just wanted us out of there. Debated ordering dessert but only had 7 minutes before our “allotted time” was up. Ended up going elsewhere for drinks and dessert. A definite miss for me in all fronts.

    They tell you at the door there is a two hour time limit to your table, trust me you will need it as food and service are very slow. Took 15 minutes to get drink a half hour to get a burger and a pizza. No salt and pepper on tables and severs walk by and don't stop.
