Contemporary American

Located in Oakland’s historic Grand Lake District, Bardo is a neighborhood lounge and restaurant inspired by the comfort and camaraderie of a mid-century dinner party. Drawing on the celebration and elegance of old school entertaining, we envisioned a space for friends and neighbors to enjoy amazing food, cocktails, conversation and dope AF music.

Our lounge is a swank living room, furnished with hand-picked finds from antique and vintage markets from Palm Springs to Portland. Our mezzanine dining room features a rotating menu of fresh, seasonal supper-fare with local and sustainably sourced meats, fish and produce. While we think the food, drinks and atmosphere are all great reasons to visit us, it’s the relationships with our friends, neighbors and guests that is the driving force behind Bardo. Bardo is a home for building, growing and sustaining community by keeping our peeps well fed, properly hydrated and in good spirits.

                                      This wasn't my first time at Bardo, and it surely won't be my last! As always, the food, cocktails, and service were exceptional. The only bummer of the evening was that we were seated upstairs and it was uncomfortably hot up there. We mentioned this to the server, and she empathized that there's just a small vent upstairs and it isn't enough. I'll be sure to request a table downstairs next time.

                                      What a fantastic meal! We went to celebrate my daughter's graduation from Cal. The food was amazing; the service sublime and the ambiance couldn't be beat! We even got to meet the talented chef. Also, the mixologists are so talented. Thank you Bardo (and owner Seth Bregman) for an unforgettable evening!

                                      The drinks were delicious and the service was excellent so I'll definitely be returning but wouldn't book the area we booked ever again. I chose the lounge option and expected two seats and a maybe side tables for a relaxing cocktail dinner but we were placed in an awkward corner that was elevated a step up that made it even more difficult to reach the small table they put there against the wall (think an thin entry table). It would have been fine alone to have a cocktail and read/relax there but two people in that space was very odd.

                                      We went for a belated birthday dinner, sat at the 3 top by the window. Cocktails are amazing, food was excellent, service as well. A great place in our neighborhood!

                                      This restaurant has it all; not only is the food delicious, fresh, and well prepared, but the ambiance feels like a cool, hip supper club with a variety of places to dine and sip. The decor is straight out of the 1960’s; the lighting is divine and the barware evokes a time no longer seen when dining out.

                                      Lots of mishaps, but I’m not too concerned w that. But the food was so over salted, I woke up hungover without drinking any alcohol.

                                      My friend and I were very impressed with Bardo. Great service, delicious cocktails and dishes. We sat at the bar and it was lovely. Did not scope out the dining seating but the lounge seating looked nice too!

                                      We had an 8:45 reservation and were not aware the kitchen closed at 9. So, we were rushed through our meal. It would have been helpful when making the reservation to have been made aware we would be on the clock to place our order and eat. Would not recommend the high top tables for dinner. There is nowhere for your knees to go. Uncomfortable for a full meal.

                                      We had a great experience at Bardo. The food was absolutely amazing. Every bite of every dish, swear to the goddesses, was fantastic. The wine was also really great. It's a nice and interesting interior and the service was excellent. My only complaint is that it was a bit noisy.

                                      Emma was a wonderful server! I have food allergies and she was able to convey my drink order correctly. And the bartender mixed a terrific Cosmo! I am picky and he did I really good job. The food was very good. I love the clubby feel with mismatched everything. We were first seated at a couch and coffee table for dinner but the hostess saw that we would have preferred a table. We didn’t want to make a fuss but she offered to move us when a table came a available. We’re looking for a new “regular” place to go and this may be it!

                                      While the food was amazing, the service was lacking. It took a while before anyone came to check if we needed drinks. When my son spilled water in front of our waiter, they did not offer someone to help clean it up or give us additional napkins. The floor was wet beneath his feet and he slipped a couple times.

We had the salted cod, the crispy chicken, and a few different appetizers. It was great --- the food is top notch. And our server was attentive and friendly. Perfect 10 for this place!

                                      I loved that place but is the second time I go and they move me to another table because they overbooked customers. To note that I also made a reservation the 2x I’ve been. Other than that, food and drinks are exceptional!

                                      First of all - I'm a very picky eater, and a bit of a traditionalist. Prefer butter roasted root veggies to pickled ones. My only feedback, and I said this to the restaurant, they were heavy handed with vinegar, to my taste. Highlights - amazing cocktails! liver mousse with candied mandarin, chicken with crispy skin. The Vibe: Went with a friend for restaurant week. A great place to eat with friends and sweethearts. There's bar seating, but the vibe was a bit too romantic for me to want to eat there alone. And a super attentive and friendly wait staff.

                                      We recently dined at Bardo at the start of Oakland's Restaurant Week and had such a great experience. We started off by sharing the Lamb and Beef Meatballs and Oakland Caesar salad which was both tasty. For the main course, we had the absolutely delicious Porcini Gnocchi. It was to die for! I'm so glad that we made that selection. The complex and complementary flavors and textures of the dish really made it a standout. The chef said that it was the last night the dish would be offered because they're switching to a new Spring menu. I'm so glad we didn't miss out. We look forward to returning again soon.

                                      Our seat was a lounge seat facing a wall. It felt cramped and secluded from the rest of the restaurant and we really couldn’t get past that.

                                      My wife and I have dined here several times and have never been disappointed in any aspect. Food is always good and last night's pork chop was especially good. My wife had nut-crusted Ling Cod and she was very pleased. For appetizers our table shared the Oakland Caesar, Chicken Liver Mousse, Pickled Vegetables and Fries. Cocktails are excellent - I had the Currant Affair and my wife had the White Whale. Dessert was a shared "Apple Pie." Our server was attentive and well-informed. Last night we introduced our good friends to Bardo and they were very pleased with the experience. I would add that the environment provided an ideal dining experience and our conversation was not challenged by surrounding noise or distraction though the restaurant was full.
