There's alwasy room for dessert when it's here!

I must admit I was a bit anxious in heading upstairs to the Harry Waugh Dessert Room at Bern's Steakhouse after having a most spectacular and delicious meal where I thought I couldn't eat another bite. Was I ever wrong. The ambiance in the dessert room was every bit as wonderful as my dinner... read more

You can enjoy the deserts at your table while dining at Bern's but my recommendation is to include the desert room as part of your dining experience. You will not just enjoy the delicious desert, you will enjoy the overall experience of the desert room.

It was a very slow evening for the desert room and they still managed bad service. I don't think we will return. I was surprised at the wait considering we had just dined downstairs, without asking, they seated us next to the piano, even though there were empty tables everywhere. I did not want a piano directly in my ear,... More

How could you go wrong.....Berns for the best steak you have ever had, then head up to the dessert room. First off, what a menu. So much to choose from, everything i had was delicious, from Ice Cream, pies, and cakes, to the creamiest flan ever.

A great ending to a great meal. The prices are a little steep but you already know that if you are going to Berns. The atmosphere feels like you're in a haunted house and an elegant restaurant at the sametime :-)

We were there November, 2015 for our 12th anniversary dinner.My wife and I ended up splitting the dessert because we were stuffed after eating excellent steak. The dessert room is upstairs and it is quite cozy & romantic if with a significant other. This place was recommended by a friend after we were discussing Peter Luger;'s in NYC and we... More

I love finishing a meal at Berns and going on the tour of the kitchen and wine cellar and then going upstairs for dessert. The spirit menu is about 45 pages and it has everything you could imagine and more. The desserts themselves are wonderful. The bathrooms are decorated such that the stalls are wine casks. They are beautiful. It... More

The best carrot cake ever, also the ice creams are a must. My favorite is the macadamia nut ice cream. The desert room is a nice end to an amazing steak. The desert room is upstairs from Bern’s and room has separate seating areas for private meetings etc.
