You cannot imagine how great dessert can be until you get here. Every dessert has been carefully crafted - the ice creams are made there, the coffee is roasted and ground there - the pastry is made there. It has been tested and re-tested and all I can say is that I want to keep testing it because the desserts... More

We went to both Berns and the dessert room and the dessert room was definitely the highlight. We had our own little booth and our own little stereo so very cozy. Dessert menu is extensive and was fantastic. Had the coffee and the creme brûlée sampler which was perfect. Also have dessert liquors - perfect date night out

When you're at Bern's you must go upstairs for dessert... as unique an experience as the restaurant. All desserts were delicious ... the creme brûlée' being the least impressive.

I've been here after dinner at Bern's about 6 times now. Food and service are excellent. I've never been anywhere where the service was better. That alone makes it worth the trip so it gives you something to compare the wannabes to. Quite frankly when the decaf coffee is really good, you know you're in the right place.

WOW!!! The dessert menu is mind blowing and every single item is beyond delicious! The atmosphere is so cool, it's an old 70's feel. Plus, the have a piano man playing music the entire time, who takes requests, which is super fun!

This is part of your experience at Bern's Steak House. Once you're finished with dinner, and if you made reservations for it (you can ask your wait staff to reserve while you're there) you will be transported to another place and time for some of the best high end desserts (leave the kids at home for this experience) you'll ever...

This stays open until the last person leaves. And the staff told us that people sometimes enjoy this floor of Bern's until 3 a.m.! Not a surprise to us. Dessert coffees, drinks, desserts and live music.

the rating for this place is definitely not average but it' a difficult place to rate for me. I hate to be the only negative but maybe I was expecting too much. we were 4 and as the one said; it felt like a telephone booth. if you're claustrophobic, you might want to reconsider unless you're a large group and...

Atmosphere, selection, service and quality were all top notch. Great as a stand alone visit or a way to conclude a great dinner downstairs. The home made ice cream is worth the visit alone.
