Bertrands offers 100 bottles of French wine, Dan the server was very good and attentive, the food was average at best very little was French although we ordered Tourendos Rossini, the steaks were over cooked, sauce had little seasoning, oven roasted potato were also little seasoned but the frozen bagged vegetables were a huge distraction from the meal.

This is the best place to eat in Erie, and the region, by a wide margin. Nowhere else will you find food so delicious, all prepared superbly. It is like nothing you have ever had before. Absolutely nothing can compare. I've been to many five star restaurants around the country and other parts of the world, and this is what... More

I live close to Erie, PA in which we always considered a black hole for culinary diversity, That is until we stumbled upon Bertrand's Bistro. We are always looking for new places to eat and are constantly let down by false promises of great food. Bertrand's however is everything you think a dining experience should be. I truly believe it... More

My husband and I went to Bertrand's twice while we were passing through Erie. Both times it was totally worth the stop! The escargot are garlicky and sizzling - I dunked my bread in so I wouldn't miss a single drop. The staff is friendly, professional and willing to go that extra mile to make your experience memorable. The specials... More

Prompt service and delicious food. The beautiful cutlery, squeaky clean glassware, and crisp table linen were just a start to our lovely dining experience. Was so overjoyed to see duck on the menu! Fresh herbs awakened the palate. Loved it!

There were 3 of us, we has escargot, mussels, drinks, 2 veal dinners, a lamb dinner and 2 crepes...out the door with tip for $158...so... More

I stopped here on the way home from a week long trip to Niagara falls and Toronto. During my trip I ate at several restaurants that were supposedly very highly rated including a couple that were way more expensive than Bernard's. They were all good but for supposedly very highly rated restaurants that cost me more than $40 a piece... More

Bertrands has an excellent menu , great service and a nice wine list. Trying one of the crepes for dessert after dinner is a "must". Great choice for Erie which has relatively limited fine dining choices
