Eating outside was perfect as the weather was still warm. The food is always excellent and the staff is very helpful and attentive.

Only thing we regret is that we didn’t go sooner. We met the owner Angela. She and her staff were so friendly. The food was delicious, authentic and fresh. Will definitely be back!

I’d suggest they invest in heat lamps so outdoor dining is a possibility in the colder months.

The beet salad had no beets... Service good otherwise. I think sitting down around two o'clock was right before a break or dining change to dinner? So everyone disappeared at one point and we were the only ones.

This is a bit of a head scratcher! Our beet salad is our most popular salad and 50% of it is comprised with beets. if we ever run out of an item it becomes not available. The only thing I can say is that there are many layers of flavor in the salad and possibly you could not identify it. Please stop in again and ask for Sandy, Angela or Alex and lets do a taste test on us.

The food is always amazing but I think brunch is really special. All the desserts are fresh every day and we had a strawberry shortcake that was to die for! Such wonderful service and calmness in the restaurant especially helpful during this crazy time period.

Another amazing night at Baldanza! This has become our weekly date night spot during quarantine since it has opened. Such a beautiful setting outside and Mike, our waiter couldn’t have been more friendly or engaging. Tuna tartar was incredible and full of flavor. To follow, we both got the salmon as we usually do, which was cooked perfectly accompanied by fresh clean veggies. They really make you feel like regulars when you go and every time I leave I look forward to next visit.

My wife and I went for our second post-pandemic meal in a restaurant/my birthday and Bistro Baldanza was great. The service was warm and welcoming, and we enjoyed our food and cocktails. We will continue to visit this restaurant in the future.

Amazing experience and delicious food. They had seating set up outside and I hope they continue this set up because it was so nice and had plenty of space between us and other tables. Delicious gazpacho and rock shrimp but very large servings so plan accordingly. Then had delicious entrees along with some tasty cocktails. Waiter could not have been more friendly and even gave us a free taste of a new beer they just got at the end. Owner of restaurant came out and checked on us and made us feel very welcome. Overall an amazing evening and dining experience and will definitely be coming back!

In this era of social distancing, we thoroughly enjoyed our outdoor meal at Baldanza. Although we got seated at a table a bit removed from the restaurant, we enjoyed sitting beneath the trees and enjoying the pleasant evening. Should Baldanza continue serving beyond its immediate patio, a few more lights would go a long way for the experience (perhaps tree lights!).

We started with the shishito peppers, the gazpacho (special for the night) and the chilli. All were fantastic. For mains we split a variety of burgers, halibut steak (which was delicious) and the filet mignon. The filet was overcooked, but everything else came out perfectly.

The service was very friendly and brought energy to the evening given there was no interaction with any other guests. Will definitely return!
