The Great Steak Experience!!!

When in Tampa, don't miss Bern's Steak House. The dessert room is upstairs. As of late, you have to eat at Bern's to make a reservation for the dessert room. Both are outstanding.

Take your time and read the menu. Talk to the server about all of the options and don't share 1 desert with 2 people. Order a few and share amongst the group. Lot's of great spirits, desert wines, and choice café to choose from.

Dessert followed dinner and tour of kitchen and wine cellar. Piano music is piped in. Requests are taken. Separate check from your dinner Very classy and well done

Was with a group and we ordered a whole bunch of different desserts - one was better than the other - but the whole dessert room made everything taste better- service was top notch

Never go to Bern's without going upstairs for desert. Unbelievable selection. The perfect ending to a great meal.

After dinner drinks were very good. Banana pie was rich and creamy. Assorted taste of desserts were good. Server explained different items clearly.

Great end to an amazing evening. The desserts are incredibly fun and creative. I took four clients, and everyone had a world class experience. We'd all recommend a visit.

One thing I learned a few years ago, you don't have to have a full meal at Bern's to enjoy the dessert room (although I still say the steak and value of your meal is the best in Tampa - sides, salad all included). You get a "private" area to enjoy your sweet treats! Bread pudding is wonderful! Atmosphere is... More

Just about anything you order from the extensive menu will be delicious. I'd recommend the Chocolate-Chocolate-Chocolate Classic, the Espresso Brownie, Trio of Liquid Cakes, and the Brown Sugar. Their coffees are excellent, too. Live piano music and a unique atmosphere enliven your experience!
