5 PM reservation, seated in a dining room that was cafeteria style, rows of long tables according to party size with center isle. We were up against a wall at a table for two with a table of four arms' length away, so this room was inappropriate for two. As the room filled up it became quite noisy. We ordered... More

While there are many "steak houses", Bern's is a great dining experience including the tour of their wine cellar! The steak tartare, onion soup house salad and twice baked potato all provide a great chorus supporting a most tender and delicious Delmonico! Can still taste the deliciousness! Mmmmm. Service is excellent and the ambiance brings you back to a vintage... More

To be fair would give 4.5. We had a great time at Berns. The service is incredible. We had a 9 o'clock reservation and were seated at about 9:25. The French onion soup was good. The salad was very average. The baked potato was good. The vegetables were average. The onion rings were great although not very hot. The star... More

We got there Tuesday night without reservations at 6.30 pm and it was already packed. We where offered a table in the lounge area, and took it. Our dinner was spectacular as usual. You can never go wrong when you order steaks at Bern's. Another nice treat is that all entrees include salad, French Onion soup, baked potato and crispy... More

This is definitely an experience you should not miss. Take it all in including The Wine Cellar tour and the Dessert Room, you will not be disappointed! I prefer to sit in the bar and enjoy the clientele. The food, service and wine selection is spectacular. Feel free to dress to the nines or go casual, it is Florida after... More

Spectacular! A must visit if you're visiting Tampa. Request the tour of the restaurant and you will not be dissappointed. With the largest wine selection in the world it's hard to go wrong. Truly a dining experience you don't want to miss. Highly recommend.😊

I met my friend at a Bears game in Soldier Field about 30 years ago. Each year we would meet for a steak dinner in Chicago and Tampa when our NFL teams were playing against each other. In Chicago it is Lawry's or Morton's, but in Tampa it is ALWAYS Bern's. One time, we had lavender ice cream in the... More

Not to be missed if you want a special dining experience in Tampa, FL. This was one of the best dining experiences i have had. Impeccable service, excellent cut of meat, amazing desserts and, of course, good wines. Get a tour of the kitchen and wine cellar with your meal. This is old-school fine dining and if you're in Tampa... More
