We enjoyed everything about Ardeo. The staff were great, with prompt service, and pointed out the enticing nightly specials (1/2 price bottle of wine on thursdays with two entrees-at least when we went). The atmosphere was trendy without being loud or "extreme". The presentations were aesthetically pleasing, again without being overdone.
There are now 4 Ardeo's (check out their website. This is a great place to have a beer or a pretty good meal... It seems every year we go there, we manage to find something that hits the spot... try the Calamari salad, their pizza's or their Greek Salads.. It's a restaurant worthy of your money... We wer at the Union
Station and 2 other Ardeo's this year and were NOT dissapointed.
We enjoy Ardeo's enough that we eat there at least once every other month. The food is outstanding, the atmosphere and service are above average but nothing to get excited about. Food and drink prices are fair and we always leave satisfied. Parking is excellent and, if you have to wait for a table, the turnover is such that you won't wait long. The "Italian" foods on the menu are very good but don't compare to the "Middle Eastern" dishes. Their soups are out of this world. You cannot be disappoined.
Firstly, in order to become a well established restaurant you should have good food, show respect and class to customers and! to your staff. Recently, Joe the owner and his so called chef hired someone I know. They promised a very decent wage and accommodations to the person. Non of which happened. Sorry, the accomadations were offered to the person after a week of staying in a hotel and never being reinbursed like promised. Liars! Get a load of this, the accomadation showed to the person by Rob the so called chef, had no water, no electricity and no locks on the door. A classless act of humanity. how in gods creation did the owner and rob except the person to come to work, difinitly no clean. Well done ardeo I hope everyone who reads this realize your brilliance to mankind. Spread the word people.
