Very Good Food

We felt the food was very good but the atmosphere a bit dark. You almost needed a flashlight to read the menu. I almost tripped going down a stair because it was so dark. However, that said the service was great and of course the food very good. BoBo

we found this restaurant on trip advisor and we were glad we did. The atmosphere was charming, the staff friendly, and the food great. We needed reservations on a Thursday night. Portions were generous and if you eat it all you probably won't have room for dessert. It serves both as a family friendly restaurant and one for couples celebrating... More

My daughter and son-in-law dined here last week. The menu selections were good and our server took great care of us. He told us some 'off the menu' specials. I think 3 of the 4 of us took his advice. We will definitely return.

Bernard's is an institution in Tyler. Loyal following. Bernard is a warm, friendly presence. Food and service are consistently good. Creative entrees. Reasonable prices. Only suggestion is for Bernard to update the decor. Carpet and upholstery are worn and stained in some places.

A nice little restaurant. Food was excellent. Lasagna was wonderful tasting and steaks are tender and juicy. Stuffed mushrooms were a great starter. And desert was over the top. I will definitely be back.

Bernard's is because of Bernard. What a great place to lose yourself and enjoy a great steak or perfect fish. Excellent wines and not over priced. Keep up the greatness.

This dining experience at Bernard's is superb! The evening offers a standard menu of French and Mediterranean dishes as well as seafood, lamb, beef, and other specials. The softshell crab is delicious when available. Steaks are excellent! Lunch is the best kept secret in the state. The salmon florentine is an incredible bargain, and they are rarely crowded at lunch.... More

This place is quiet and a place for couples. I wouldn't bring my kids. The prices are on the higher end and the food is okay. It's really dark and I think that's so you can't see the updates that are needed. Needs a total remodel. Has a lot of potential.

While this restaurant is a bit hard to find, being nestled behind Traditions and in the corner of a small strip mall area, it is worth the search. While dress-up is not required I noticed a number of the guests wore dinner clothes. Maybe it's because the clothes are needed to do the meal justice. The food is great, but... More

The décor reminds of a old European restaurant The owner ,Bernard is from France and brings the flavors of of Europe with fresh ingredients from the new world. I have eaten at Bernard's many times over the last ten years and always look forward to my next business trip to Tyler to once again enjoy the Mediterranen cusine.
