If you do not like Bern's or think it is not worth the $$$, you should stick to Al's Fingering Licking Good BBQ, or the Brocato's Sandwich Shop. This experience is flawless, and it never disappoints, and has been one of the best restaurants for many, many years. The staff is extremely attentive to your needs and have a great... More

This place was a lucky find for us!! The entire dining experience is like no other. The lobby is kind of funny.....it definitely looks like the haunted house ride at Disney. We all had steak (hello you are in a steakhouse...for goodness sake order the steak). We had an amazing awesome waiter that stepped us through the menu...he also recommended... More

I was lucky enough to have been in Tampa recently and had the pleasure of experiencing Bern's. This is not just a meal it's an adventure! The decor is different from any steak house I've ever been to, very cool place with a very different feel than your norm. The food is amazing and you get a lot of it.... More

Ok the basics first: the food is delicious, the service impeccable yet friendly, and the decor as random as it gets. The menu contains an enormous variety of things, including a back cover full of cheeses, a full page of caviar options and a page of cuts and weights of beef. All the appropriate cuts are available, including chateaubriand. Included... More

I have heard so much about Bern's for many years and have always wanted to try it. We finally went for a birthday celebration and absolutely loved it! The atmosphere and ambiance was just perfect! The staff was very attentive to our needs and very knowledgeable about the menu and wine. We had the filet mignon and Delmonico which were... More

For me Bern's is the best steakhouse in Tampa and one of the best in the world. Delicious Steaks!! You do need a reservation for a nice table. The service should be better and more friendly. the prices are ok for a highend steakhouse (45$ for a medium sized steak+sides+drinks+tax+tip).

I know, I know, you have heard so many times how awesome Berns is that you are tired of it. Get ready to hear it again. When was the last time you spent 3 hours at a dinner and not be rushed and feel like you have been there for an hour? The wait staff is incredible, the food is... More

Bern's has been our families restaurant for celebrations for over 40 years. We took a party of 5 recently for a surprise birthday visit. As usual the food was just perfect... From the drinks and appetizers to the desert the food was superb ... I think it is a little more casual than in the past. We have never been... More
