You owe it to yourself to go once. The care put into the food is extraordinary. Be sure to get the tour.

Bern's is more than a restaurant...it's an experience and one that everyone should try at least once. The food is fabulous! Everyone receives a tour of the kitchen and wine cellar on their first trip. And, of course, no trip to Bern's is complete without a trip upstairs to the dessert room! My favorite on the dessert menu is the... More

A meal at Berns Steakhouse is more than just dinner..... It's an experience. From the moment you walk through the front door with the opulent red decor to the many small dining rooms... to the food..... Oh my, the food!!! Or the wine list with its 1 million bottle cellar or maybe the staff. Friendly and knowledgeable and our waiter... More

Bern's is consistently ranked as the #1 restaurant in Tampa and now I can see why! I live in Naples, FL and don't get up to Tampa that often, so this time I made a point of getting to Bern's. I was not disappointed!! We didn't have a reservation, but we arrived early enough to get a nice table in... More

My boyfriend and I went here last night for our anniversary dinner. Our server, Davor, was delightful, he was probably about 90% of the reason our experience was so great. He made us feel like he was our grandfather and suggested different ways of trying the food and wines. The food itself was amazing. We started with the crab cakes... More

We haven't been to Bern's for about 15 years, and the steaks are still excellent, and a great deal since all the extras are included in the price, salad, potato, onion rings, vegetable, French onion soup. Dessert room is a must even if you don't stay.

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

You have to tour the kitchen and wine cellar. The food was good. The french onion soup was delicious. The service was spot on and did not seem too pretentious. I would go back in the future. The food is a good value as everything is not a la carte. The dessert room is a must visit. The steak was... 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
