You seriously cannot go wrong here. My husband and I have been multiple times to celebrate. The tiramisu is creamy and delicious. The cafe con leche is perfect. You sit in a "wine cask," and it provides a very intimate setting. I love that you are able to call down to the pianist and request songs too.

Great place to indulge in fancy desserts in a quaint setting. Would not recommend the regular restaurant downstairs for food though.

If you want a really special....really special!...evening....go to Bern's Steak House....and top off your dinner with a trip to the Dessert Room! It's an evening (and dinner and dessert) that you'll talk about for years!

We find ourselves wanting to spend special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries because it's a great spot. Love the piano bar and the intimate booths.

This time was not as enjoyable - not Bern's fault - because it was dead due to RNC in town. Also, sever needed to leave us alone - constantly checking on us. I know she was probably trying to do a good job but not necessary.

Food was ok. I ordered the granny smith apple pie a la mode and it was only ok. Husband ordered Exotic Vanilla and that was only ok.

But we will definitely return and order something different.

I took my Uncle to Bern's for his 82nd birthday, and of course, we had to have dessert in the famous Dessert Room. The individual "rooms" make it a private experience - I can definitely see this being a perfect date-night place for after dinner coffee and dessert. It's a little pricey, but perfect for special occasions and celebrations.
