This place is really nice for a date night. It has intimate seating and low lighting. On weekends they have a great house band. Drinks are weak but food is good.

This little gem of a restaurant is a favorite with locals. With only about 20 seats (the most choice are in the window), the service and the food are personal and delicious. The ambiance is comfortable, non trendy (maybe even anti-trendy), an oasis in a...More

My friends and I were looking for a different dining experience and we found it at Bardia’s, a quaint café in Adams Morgan. The food, reasonably priced, is out of this world and the atmosphere warm and friendly. It was like eating Mom's home cooking....More

If you have a taste for New Orleans and you are in DC then go to this cafe. The owner is the epitome of hospitality. The jambalaya was excellent. The beignets were freshly made. Truly it is a special place in the Adam Morgan area.

This was a fun place to eat in Adams Morgan. The étouffée and salad were delicious, and the owner waited on our table. He was very engaging and gave us complimentary beignets "to go". I highly recommend this restaurant to lovers of Cajun cuisine.

This place is amazing. Simply amazing! Been coming here for years and I've never been disappointed. Prices are fair and the food excellent. I've never had anything here I didn't like. Étouffée and jambalaya are equally good. Try fried okra or Bardia's crab soup for...More
