Outstanding!

Atmosphere, selection, service and quality were all top notch. Great as a stand alone visit or a way to conclude a great dinner downstairs. The home made ice cream is worth the visit alone.

the rating for this place is definitely not average but it' a difficult place to rate for me. I hate to be the only negative but maybe I was expecting too much. we were 4 and as the one said; it felt like a telephone booth. if you're claustrophobic, you might want to reconsider unless you're a large group and...

Perfect way to end the evening. Many choices for desserts, wines and coffees. Your own private room.

We all saved room from dinner so we could go upstairs and enjoy dessert. The rooms are tiny - made out of old wine casks - and dimly lit. There are tons of wonderful desserts and after dinner drinks and fine liquors from which to choose. We all got the banana cream pie (I think that's what it was called)... More

This is the place to top off, literally, your dinner at Bern's. Really nice private cubicles to enjoy dessert. Excellent variety of choices, including the sugar free chocolate mousse that I had. the waiter said I would not be able to tell it was sugar free, and he was correct. Absolutely top notch. Part of the fun is reading through... More

Not much differentiation in the dishes that contained chocolate and the King Midas Carrot cake was over done. Seems they need some help in the pastry area because this was average at best.

Definitely must begin with the Cappuccino Berns Steak House. Freshly ground coffee with Kahlua ad other liqueurs. Just pure heaven! I was dying to have the Cappuccino Cream, but they were out. So I opted for Espresso Brownie. Just delightfully yummy!! My boyfriend had the Taste of Berns, a sampler of 5 of the desserts. This made it possible for... More

My wife and I have been here several times, and it never disappoints. I suggest letting them know if it's a special night and see if they can seat you in the piano room. Our favorite desserts are: Banana cheese pie! Brown sugar The dessert samplers are a little disappointing only because it leaves you wanting more of your favorites.... More
