Let me preface this by saying that I NEVER write a bad review. In fact, I usually make fun of people that do and 9 times out of 10 think they're closet losers that need perfection 24/7.
Now that I got that out of the way, I can tell you that we went to this restaurant because we've only heard good things about it. Well let me tell you something, it was far from good. Where should I begin..
1. They didn't tell us the specials that they randomly told the family next to us.
2. They neglected to bring us our requested wine TWICE, from two different waiters. We were without drink our entire entree.
3. The food - where was the taste? The lump crab cake appetizer was lump crab shell with some crab.
4. The bottle wine - I'm not one to complain about pricing. I pay what I need to in order to have a good time, but any bottle I found where I knew the store price was almost 3 times what you would normally pay. I'm really OK with paying double, as that's the norm. I can't stand when someone, in this case The Bernards Inn, rips people off.
This place left us with such a nasty taste, pun intended, that we didn't even want to think of any kind of dessert. Something that we always get and that most places cannot mess up.
All in all, we paid $150+ for crap. The long awaited Reisling was the only good tasting thing that we had.
