“Bernard's & Sarah's Wine Bar”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

These are 2 fabulous restaurants located in Ridgefield, Ct. They are my "Go To" restaurants for family and friends. The steak at Bernard's can't be beat and it's always cooked to perfection. Sarah's is the perfect spot for great wine, good music and fabulous atmosphere and wonderful food that you can count on.

“Beyond fantastic!”
Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

Bernard's is definitely my favorite restaurant for special occasions in Ridgefield. The food is out of this world, the ambiance and location is top notch. Definitely recommend for special occasions, I would definitely recommend it all the time but its a little on the expensive side for a regular place to eat- although you get what you pay for and you will definitely be satisfied.

“Lovely atmosphere, very good food”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Very upscale restaurant in Ridgefield. Good food and service. Lovely atmosphere. There is even a B&B where you could stay right next door. Bernard's has a casual dining room as well as the formal one, where the prices are a bit lower too.

“Still the same strengths & weaknesses”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

I reviewed Bernard's about a year ago and this time around I have basically the same pros and cons. It is a nice, friendly restaurant with good but not superlative food. The wine list is excellent and very attractively priced. The weakest link continues to be the service staff: they try hard but are simply not at the level that the restaurant aspires to.
