    Everyone enjoyed the food other than my Grain Bowl - not sure what it was lacking. The only disappointing meal ever at this great restaurant - will always recommend and return!

    It’s been a long time since I’ve been at a restaurant that delivered on their food. The food was amazing. It’s not an intimate place. It’s a place you come to have great food.

    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.
