The dessert room at Bern's is just amazing. I love the desserts and the ambiance is just so romantic. I definitely recomend it 100%. Can't wait to go back there with my husband.

simply sublime. the Bern' coffee was perfection. the desert was pure decadence. we were seated in the piano room. the pianist was not only talented but the man deserves a medal. fielding constant phone calls for requests and never missing a beat. little girls kept calling in between song requesting Lady Gaga. he took it all in stride.

You must visit the dessert room if you dine at Bern's. And by dessert room - I mean dessert floor. I was amazed at how big the space was. We were sat next to the piano which was such a treat! I could have sat their for hours sipping champagne and nibbling on chocolate cake.

Even if you give the steak restaurant a miss…don't miss the chance for a truly unique and first rate dessert experience!! I am an expert and this is my honest review. I would only give the steakhouse a 3 star rating by comparison.

No matter how full we are after dinner at Bern's - and we are always quite full - we always head up to the dessert room. Everything on the menu sounds delicious, including ice cream, cakes, coffees, and alcoholic beverages. This time my husband had a hot coffee, I had a vanilla iced coffee (excellent), and we shared a slice... More

This is a must for any local or visitor to the Tampa area. Even if you can't get a table at Bern's and/or don't like the steakhouse vibe, the Dessert Room upstairs is truly something to see and experience. Heck, go here even for just dinner!

Even if you aren't into sweets, but who isn't? you must try this! Amazing desserts, after dinner drinks, cordials, coffees are wonderful.. the atmosphere is superb, so if it's after dinner dessert or a late nite date, it's the perfect place... and oh, I forgot a wonderful piano bar made it even more entertaining and special... loved, loved, loved it...

Our son choose Bern's to celebrate his 24th birthday, and it was an excellent choice! The service was wonderful, setting old world charm, food PERFECT, kitchen and wine cellar tour an added bonus, and the desert room unmatched. We ordered the oysters, they were fresh and succulent, perfect Caesar salad prepared table side, steaks were prepared exactly as ordered and... More

an inattentive server who admitted to forgetting we were there made for a disappointing end to a fairly lackluster evening at what has been for me a memorable series of experiences in the past. I went out of the way to stay next door at Epicurean Hotel so that my wife could have the Bern's experience for the first time.... More
