A wonderful end to a great dinner

We very much enjoyed our dessert here. I had the ice cream sampler and all 5 were wonderful. My wife had the creme brulee and she loved it, the coffee was great too. Make sure to save room from the steakhouse so you can enjoy their wonderful creations.

The first time I wasn't thrilled with our desserts. While very good, they tasted like they had been siting in the fridge too long. The second time all the desserts were to die for. Love sitting in the old wine caskets.

You expect the desert to be spectacular and it is. You expect the ambiance to be spectacular and it is. Cool little box in each compartment with a connection to the live piano or SAT radio. We all got chocolate something and then we all were almost miserably full. Totally worth it.

Wonderful choices of amazing desserts, after dinner coffees, and ports. A must come to after dinner at Bern's but a stand alone evening in and of itself!

Huge selection of desserts and drinks, huge serving sizes, reasonable prices (this was what most surprised me as I expected the prices to be outrageous), and an amazing dimly lit atmosphere! You cannot come to or live in Tampa without stopping here. I can't believe I waited four years to try it!

Words cannot describe how phenomenal each and every experience at the Dessert Room is ♡♡♡♡♡ The ambiance is unlike anything you've ever experienced before; very romantic and rustic. Each dessert is so unique and perfectly paired and designed. This is one of the most unique and delicious experiences you'll ever have ♡♡♡

The dessert was delicious and the environment was cozy and welcoming! My only complaint was that I was too full from dinner at Bern's to appreciate it properly. Next time I would have a grilled cheese at home and come just for dessert. :) This would be a special place to take a child to celebrate an accomplishment.

No visit is complete unless you go to the Dessert Room at Bern's. Each table is set in its own room. The homemade ice is wonderful.

After dinner downstairs at Bern's Steakhouse we came to eat some dessert. The cheesecakes are to die for as well as the coffees. This is a definite go to place.

After dining at Berns our waiter had a private booth for 8 ready upstairs we ordered numerous dessert. I ordered the banana and it was good, but the best one out of all that I tried was the brown sugar one. It comes with 3 different items that were all good!!
