Everything about Bern's is excellent, the old school feel, makes you feel like your in a God Father movie. I advise you take the tour of the kitchen, and the wine cellar, it is stellar. The steaks are awesome, and it's not A le carte, so you go away full and satisfied. The dessert room is a must... read more

I've been many times. In the past you had to eat dinner downstairs in order to get in, which gave it a bit of exclusive mystique. You sit in individual little "rooms" made to look as if you are in a giant wine barrel. The menu is extensive, but it has actually gotten smaller over the years. Many rare scotch,... More

Of course after supper, and a tour of the kitchen, and wine cellar, the desert room is the perfect way to end the meal. Anything with the macadamia nut ice cream is a must.. bananas foster is a must.. its done table side. Even the simple brownie is delicious. Then you have the drinks. oh, the options!

The staff at Bern's went above and beyond as usual for my husband's birthday. Food was, of course, phenomenal as well. Bern's never disappoints.

you can have dessert at your table when you eat dinner BUT... make sure you inform the waiter that you want a reservation at the Harry Waugh Dessert room when you are first seated at Bern's to have one of the most amazing dinners you have ever had. First, the Dessert Room is upstairs over the restaurant. Second, some of... More

Yes, you're probably stuffed from a great meal at Bern's. But don't let that stop you from a trip upstairs to the Dessert Room. Take your time, have a coffee or after-dinner drink and share one of the many excellent deserts.

We have been fortunate to enjoy a few very fine dinners at Bern's Steakhouse over the last year. But it wasn't until we made a reservation and experienced the dessert room that we got the full measure of this Tampa icon. Dessert is served to you within your own private booth. Understand that I mean you are encapsulated within a... More

Bern's steakhouse wants to be a gastronomic restaurant like the one we have in France... it is a complete faille! At first we had to wait more than 1/2 an hour even if we had booked a table in a crowded hallway, then, the restaurant was crowded, no space between the tables. The foie was good, but the rest of...

Truly an experience and something for everyone. Everything we had was fantastic from the scotch to the ice cream. Private tables and nice selection of relaxing music including the live music downstairs.
