If you are visiting the Tampa Bay area, do yourself a favor and make time in your schedule to visit Berns. It's a high class meal, I would advise sport coat for guys.

awesome experience have been in Tampa for over 10 years we finally got the opportunity to go to Bern's. Got the most basic steak possible on the menu. It was around $32 it included French onion soup, salad and baked potato. Not bad for the amount of food you received. Always thought this place was $50 a steak. Which they... More

Bern's Steak House is the restaurant you must experience at least once in your life if you live close enough to visit. This is a destination steak house. Not so much for the interior, although that is something to see: so much red velvet, you've never seen so much in one place. This restaurant has an extensive training program for... More

Bern's is famous for it's wine list, and it is a place where many go for anniversaries and family events. For the money, the food is not special and the seating if uncomfortable. There are many better fine dining experiences in the Tampa Bay area.

One of the best experiences of our lives. James was a great waiter and guided us through our experience with skill. We didn't even need a menu. Had the Delmonico for two, and he paired a wine well within our budget. The perfect place for a special dinner.

Bern's is a classic and a must do while in Tampa. I have been going for years and still enjoy it. Consistent quality thru and thru, expect excellent service, a world renown wine collection, a perfectly prepared meal and an unbelievable dessert experience. Don't be in a hurry you will be there for the evening without a doubt. So make... More

This a restaurant that I would suggest is an 'event' type of restaurant for most of us. It is a place to celebrate and in which to celebrate. It has the style of an upscale Parisian brothel, and the ambiance one would expect of a 1st class establishment. The waiters are professional and exceedingly knowledgeable, far superior to a normal... More

Great food. Great service. Yes, it is pricey, but when in or near Tampa it is a must. I have been to all of the other steakhouses with names everyone knows. This one tops them all. I just wish I lived closer.

Definately in the top ten best of Tampa. There is a reason for their excellent reputation with locals and tourists alike. The atmosphere is best described as old time unique and might not please everyone. If you are a steak expert and want your steak prepared exactly the way you like it, all you have to do is ask.
