Whenever we visit Erie, we try to eat at Bertrand's and have always had a good meal. Our last visit was a huge disappointment. We had reservations at 6PM, so you would think that they would have ample food. Four of us ordered veal- 20 minutes later they inform us that they have only one order available. Three of us... More

Bonjour, Yes, I heard that the front of the house and back of the house didn't communicated as they should of that night and I am really sorry about that. The server also heard it from me! As you know, this is not what we are about and we would really appreciate if you would give us another chance! We... More

Still my absolute favorite place in Erie, but I really miss some things that didn't make it on to the new menu. No garlic aioli for the frites...so sad. No lamb medallions, just the rack...somewhat sad. No mushroom risotto....criminal. That's the only thing I like in the world that actually contains mushrooms. The other risotto was ok, but not as...

Bonjour, Well, I knew that was going to happen! Some people want new items and some don't! Here is the good news: we listen! I talked to my chef and we will try to bring back the items mentioned. Please ask at time of reservation if it will be available on your next visit and I will make sure that... More

This is a smallish restaurant in downtown Erie (not to worry, easy to get to) the parking is right outside. We made reservations and were seated immediately. Service was superb, the waiter did not hover but always seemed to be there. The food was magnificent rating a Michelin star but did cater to the American taste with a French flair.... More

My husband I I were there for our 27th anniversary dinner tonight. Stephanie was our server, and one of the best :) From start to finish the meal could not have been better. From the mixed drink made with burbon, muddled oranges, and others it was perfect, the special soup of the day was beyond amazing! My husband had the... More

Bertrand's is one of my favorite restaurants in Erie. Having been in several cities/towns in France, I can attest to the legitimacy of the cuisine. The atmosphere is quaint, dimly lit for romance . The service is very attentive. Try to get a window seat so that you may gaze out at Perry Square in the city of Erie. If... More

We stopped in for dinner prior to attending a concert last week and the waitress was understanding and helpful to keep us moving so as not to miss the show. Dinner was very good; we all finished everything on our plates so that certainly says much to the quality of the meal. It was too bad we didn't leave time... More

We decided to try this restaurant because we were going to an event downtown. This a first class place. We didn't have a reservation but we were early, so not a problem. We saw a group of 4 come in about a half an hour later without reservations and they were told it would be an hour and half wait.... More
