Miquel at Bernardo’s is the perfect waiter. He is friendly yet unobtrusive, with a quiet demeanor and attentive personality. I also enjoyed learning more about the hotel’s history from him, Joshua and Kris the restaurant manager. With the exception of the bare chested men walking to and from the pool while I ate, my dinner was perfect! The portions are... More

We always come here for the eggs Benedict and bagels and lox. I have to say that Karen is a great waitress and Jerry and Fermin go out of their way to make sure our food is just the way we want it. The manager even checks on us personally.

You never know what to expect. We attended a taste testing for a wedding, the food was excellent! At our wedding reception, the food arrived and was very dissatisfield. The bruschetta was soggy, the chicken skewers were very dry, looking like dead squirrel. The sirloin steak came out very bloody, nobody could eat. They brought our a second round of... More

Bernardo’s at Hotel Galvez Sunday Brunch Buffet is good and has a very wide array of foods. from custom omelets and waffles, to Eggs Benedict. There is also a large variety of breads, pastries, and desserts. However the price is to high for what you get and the service is atrocious. Our waiter only came by to check to see... More

Very Good Brunch I love the Hotel Galvez. Built in 1911, this hotel has a long and rich history. Several celebrities and famous Americans have stayed here over the years. Some even claim it's haunted. On Sundays, though, they serve a very nice Brunch from 11 AM to 2PM As you walk into the front lobby and walk to Bernardos,... More

The food was excellent, there was not a single thing I didn't like. Everything tasted fresh and delicious. I loved the Eggs Benedict and the smoked salmon was great. The shrimp was cooked perfect. Our Mimosa never ran out our server was always there to refill the glass. We had a very enjoyable time and will do this again. I... More

As I expected, service great, music soft and conversation could be had, food was excellent. My pork chop was so big I could only eat l/2 took rest with me, the creme burlee is so creamy and home made...5 star for sure. Just a perfect evening for us.

Because it was a Monday night, my husband and I had a very quiet setting in the lovely Bernardo's at the Hotel Galvez. We both ordered a filet and it was delicious, as was everything we were served. Service was quite good. It definitely is a special occasion restaurant with its rather pricey menu, but the experience was worth it..... More

In the lobby of the Galvez, Bernardo's tries to be elegant. That attempt is fatally marred by pedestrian traffic between the swimming pool and the room elevators, between which Bernardo's is situated. Sadly, the problem is easily curable, but no manager seems willing to act: enforce a "no swimsuits in the lobby" rule and require swimmers to use the alternate... More
