This is the most pretentious restaurant I have ever been to. It is also the first time I had to pay $5 to a valet AND they have a sign saying the gratuity is extra!!! The food is not very good and there are groups of people racing all over and eating in 7 or so very gaudy, tasteless decorated... More

Bern's is a great way to celebrate a special occasion or treat yourself to a nice meal out. The decor makes you feel like a King in his castle and the food never fails to impress. Also the wait staff are the best in the business. Ask for the four top in the corner of John's section. Remember to save... More

We always enjoy going to Bern's for an exceptional evening, and this one was no exception. Our group of four made pilgrimmage to Bern's for a weekend together. We had exceptional steaks (both my wife and I had the Delmonico, which is our favorite cut because of the flavor and marbling, Our companion couple had a filet and a New... More

I kept hearing that I have to go. So glad I did. First of all, we made the reservations one month in advanced and it wasn't early enough. We ended up with Saturday dinner at 9:30pm. We arrived at 9:15pm to a very packed lobby and bar. Tom was a great bartender. After a few drinks while waiting, we were... More

Man oh man!!!! Dinner was fabulous and dessert and coffee was even better!!!! The soup, salad, steak and potato were delicious! We took a tour of the kitchen and wine cellar then went upstairs for dessert. The upstairs portion of the restaurant is so cool!!! Each table is private surrounded by wine barrels. We had a sampler of desserts as... More

The steaks are marvelous and the wines exceptional. I've dined here perhaps 8 times. Last time in, I used a napkin (made of paper) as I left, so stuffed it in my pocket as I didn't see a dust bin or trash can. Subsequently, those slacks were washed and went through the dryer. A lump in the pants pocket upon... More

this was our second visit and not as enthralling as our first. we enjoyed the variety and unusual experience the first time which including visiting the wine cellar and dessert bar. this time it just came across as way too much food, and except for the steak, the food was just average or above average. The price is huge. I... More

I've lived in the area all my life and never experienced Bern's until yesterday to celebrate my 30th birthday. The service was on point and the food was wonderful. My husband ordering a Luxe Beef Tasting which included 3 oz each of Wagyu strip, filet, and Delmonico. The Wagyu was divine. I had my favorite cut, an 8 oz Delmonico.... More

Celebrated my sons 16th Birthday and what a treat!! All the food was FABULOUS from the steaks to the desserts. As this was our first time, Josh our server went over and above to make our experience outstanding. It was great to get a tour of the kitchen and the wine cellar.

We were in town and enjoyed an evening with family who live in Tampa at Bern's. The steaks are cooked to order and they were very high quality. The complete dinner is a real value compared to other big end steak houses. We should have eaten light that day to enjoy all they serve with your steak. My husband and... More
