Stopped recently at Bern's to eat in the lounge. We had heard that we would be able to get into the dessert room...we couldn't wait. The best coffee I've ever had along with most delicious home made macadamia nut ice cream. A must visit because you will never dine in such a unique setting Sixth time here in the past... More

Great dessert experience. If you have room after a big steak dinner at Bern's you should ask to be seated in the dessert room. There you can get a great selections of desserts and after dinner drinks in a private booth with your own music selection.

Dessert is such a mundane description of what is offered. Every table is a private room, a piano master takes requests and pipes in the music. All of the desserts are beyond compare. It is a treat for everyone. A terrific destination surprise for a sophisticated birthday or celebratory event.

Just love the dessert room. The coffee is one of the best coffees and the dessert is almost too pretty to eat - almost. It's intimate and decadent and definitely worth a visit

Upstairs from Bern's but you can eat there without eating in Bern's. The desert menu is expansive making choices difficult but who cares. Don't pass it up.

Your party is taken to their own "room" through a maze of halls accentuated by dark wooden walls and panels...some have doors and others are open but still seem private. Lots of ice creams, chocolate choices, sugar-free and gluten-free ones as well. We tried the macadamia nut sundae and the taste of Bern's. The sundae is huge with 3 large... More

The dessert room is a unique experience. Chocolate chip macadamian nut sundae is my favorite. Diner can be reasonable and taking a tour of the kitchen and wine cellar is a great bonus. Make a reservation early. Berns is a great restaurant and a real experience.

I've been coming to Bern's since I was 10. It's an amazing, one of a kind experience. The dessert room is something you shouldn't miss out on just because you are full! It's worth the extra workout you'll have to do. I really don't understand why more restaurants haven't adopted this concept either as it's a great experience and I'm... More

If ever in the area, Berns steakhouse is an experience to try at least once. The food is wonderful and the restraunt looks like a haunted mansion. The dessert was one of a kind.
