Great food and great staff.
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!
Absolutely lovely. Gnocchi and Tuna app are to die for.
Service was superb!
I’d suggest they invest in heat lamps so outdoor dining is a possibility in the colder months.
Great food. Friendly service. The owner thanked us for dining with them. We’ll be back.
Always fresh and delicious! Love this place and the staff!
This was not our first visit .It is always a great dinner .The food and service are excellent
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 entire evening was just lovely. The food was delicious, the staff was amazing, they were careful, clean, and I felt very safe. I would go back in a heartbeat
Great food and service!
Love this place. Meatballs are some of the best in Darien and New Canaan
Love this place. Great food and overall experience
Amazing meal and great service. Can’t believe this was my first time eating at Baldanza. Would return 100%.
Lovely outdoor seating and good food at a reasonable price
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.
Always delicious! I can't wait for them to move into their new spot in New Canaan.
An absolute pleasure. The freshest food, the loveliest service- just an outstanding experience from start to finish!
The food is so delicious and the service could not be better!! Everyone is so kind and personable.
The best food in Darien, CT! Every meal is exquisite with such flavorful food. The weekend brunch is just as wonderful. I rarely post but this restaurant is deserving.
Excellent dinner. Love the organic and grass-fed choices! Service was fantastic!! Both Angela's are the best at what they do! Thank you Danielle and Michael
Baldanza never disappoints! The menu is always interesting and the food outstanding! The service could not be more attentive but never intrusive.
Pat, Thank you for the kind words. We love what we do and having it appreciated means a lot to us. Eat well and stay safe!! Sandy Baldanza
Wonderful experience and delicious food!
Lovely lunch and service on the outside patio. Service and food were great.
Really nice restaurant, service was impeccable. Food was fresh and well put together with nice twist to the meal. Will definitely go back.
One of my favorite spots! Everything is delicious!!
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.
Beautiful outdoor setting ( not the parking lot.) Great food- classics, well and inventively prepared and served. Friendly, low key, perfect for summer.
It’s are new favorite restaurant !
Lovely evening with attentive staff. Would go back
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!
Dependable. Always wonderful. Daily soups are killer. Service polite and friendly. Food serving generous at a very fair price. A gem!
Lovely experience and a great meal.
Sooo happy to go out to dinner- at our favorite restaurant. Just as good as always had the rock shrimp and gnocchi both great.
Delicious healthy options, good for vegans and vegetarians too!
Great spot! Very happy with both experiences dining here. We will be back
Met a friend for lunch. Service was great. Friendly and fast. Ordered the special spinach salad with salmon. Delicious. My friend had "the best omelet she's ever had... super fluffy"
