"Each visit to Bern's Steak House takes you on a gastronomic adventure that defines Bern's not as a meal but as an experience. We invite you to join us and experience Bern's." It is very true.Is my opinion too.

Although the interior resembles a bordello, the wait staff and the steaks are superb. Really nothing compares to Bern's.

My lasting impression is the fantastic service. Our server obviously had extensive training and experience. He was thoroughly knowledgeable about the menu and the wine selection. We had steak and were pleasantly surprised that meals include soup, salad and entree with sides. We were even more pleasantly surprised by how reasonably priced our meals with a bottle of wine were.

I have been going to Bern's Steak House for special occasins since I was a child. Just went there last week and it was incredible like always. The servers are specially trained and top notch. The wine list is like no other and the menu plentiful. Every last thing is made from scratch and the blue cheese salad dressing is... More

Been going to Berns for the last 40 years. It's a must if you are tired of all the chain restaurants. I can honestly say I have never had a bad meal in all these years. Take a tour of the kitchen and wine cellar. Make sure you have reservations to the dessert room and order the macadamia nut hot... More

If your looking for a great place to eat in the Tampa Bay look no further. Berns is one of the best steak house in the country. Little pricey but well worth it. The amount of foo d you get is unbelievable. Enough to take for another meal. And talk about left overs being A rated. Enjoy

This classic steakhouse is a jewel in South Tampa's trendy SoHo district. My wife and I chose Bern's for our 19th anniversary dinner. We made reservations several weeks in advance and arrived early. We were warmly welcomed by name and promptly shown to our table. Our waiter arrived moments later and greeted us. He was dressed to the nines and... More

As a native Tampan, I have had many opportunities to experience the world of Bern's Steak House. Consistent is the word I would use to describe the food and service. From the french onion soup to salad to steak, you always know what you will get - excellence in every way. Do take the advice of your waiter; they are... More

You don't usually associate Bern's with a good value but comparing it to other steakhouses it really is value for money. No one can match their wine list (had a 1969 Pinot for $50!) and the food and service is always superb. Dessert room is a must. I guess fussy people are thrown off by the eclectic decor but it...

I have lived in the area for 30 and never made it to Bern's until now. Yes, it is expensive, but you get a lot of food included in the price. We got the Chateaubriand for 2 which was 14 ounces for $73. Our meal included the meat, wonderful salad, best ever french onion soup, baked potato and 2 sides... More
