I don't do dessert' but I love the after Dinner drink selections. Had a mid 1800 brandy that was the best tasting brandy I have ever had. My business associates had outstanding ports. This is a memory that will last.

Everything about this place was great. I'd say if you're a sweet tooth, you could probably just skip dinner and hit this place up for a bunch of deserts! I went with my wife and they sit your in these individual 2-person rooms that are very private. It was a very cool experience.

If you go to Bern's for dinner, you have to finish it off by going upstairs for dessert! Many selections, all delicious. Had the apple pie, and it, along with my fiancé's banana bread pudding was fantastic. Capped it off with a Turkish coffee, which was great as well.

The dessert room has not been in Tampa as long as we have, but we do enjoy it now that it's here. Best with a group, especially after the usual Bern's wonderful meal.

Bern's is very good, but the desert room is awesome. One of the most romantic places I have ever dined. The "waitress" had an amazing knowledge about pairing desserts and drinks. I had the Tawny Port with the macadamia nut ice cream and it was a perfect match. You sit in circular booths, shaped like casks with tinted windows that... More

Had dessert here last night after dinner at Bern's. The coffee was terrific as usual. I usually order the Banana Cheese Pie but I wanted to try something different. I ordered the Cappuccino Creme. It's their version of tiramisu. I enjoyed it. I didn't eat the lady fingers on the side. But I tasted the caramel sauce and it was... More
