We love everything about Bern's. The food is great, the service is great. and the dessert room is a nice place to go and relax after the meal.

My boyfriend and I dined at Bern's Saturday night. It was absolutely delicious, the place itself is cool, and our server was great: extremely knowledgable and not at all pretentious. The lobby has the feel of the Haunted mansion at Disney, but not in a bad way. We split a 24oz strip (which is enough for 4 people btw) and... More

The experience starts as soon as you get through the doors. The look is that of Gothic / Louis-XIIII era; dark, mysterious, red tones, intricate woodwork....it really sets the mood. We arrived 30 minutes before our reservation of 9pm. We wanted to experience the whole thing. We sat in the bar areas for cocktail, service was just ok. Once we... More

We recently moved to Tampa and wanted to go somewhere special for our anniversary dinner. We enjoy high end restaurants and were looking forward to a great steak dinner. I'm still kind of surprised at how disappointing the experience was. There were several problems: All steaks are served with french onion soup, a basic salad, fried onions, vegetables, baked potato,... More

This is an upscale steak house with very reasonable prices when you consider the entrée includes soup, salad, baked potato and two vegetables. My entrée was an 8 oz. filet that was cooked perfectly. My wife had a filet and added a lobster tail, she said the lobster was one of the best she'd ever had. Our waiter was Houston... More

We have been to Bern's many times and have several regular waiters. If you like steak, this place is excellent and reasonable price compare to other high end steak houses, since it is not a la carte. with any entrée you get salad, french onion soup, baked potato and vegetables. My favorite salad dressing is the vanilla macadamia vinaigrette, the... More

Wow. Heard a lot about this place and it lived up to the hype. Service was excellent and food was very good. Glad we didn't order any appetizers as the entrees include salad, soup, veggies and a baked potato. Went with the sirloin strip and it was very good. Then we got the tour of the kitchen and wine cellar.... More

The food was wonderful. The staff was charming. I would definitely go there again. They took us on a tour of the wine cellar that was amazing.
