Try the macadamia nut ice cream with hot fudge sauce, please excuse my vulgarity, but it is like a sweet and velvety, chocolate orgasm in your mouth. Your taste buds will not know what hit them. You may even scream Oh God!!!

The coffee may be the best coffee I've ever had in the USA

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.
