Great for sushi!

We arrived fairly early in the evening without a reservation, and they told us if we could be out in an hour and a half, they could seat us. They weren't very busy at all, so... read more

Bamboo Bernies is the best spot to eat sushi on the island. Unbelievable sashimi, the best vegetable dumplings I've ever experienced and a great atmosphere! Highly recommended! Always makes for a lovely evening!

After searching high and low for a happening place to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday, I was thrilled to find this restaurant. It was buzzing, had a fun cocktails list and delicious food. I would highly recommend this hip restaurant to those seeking a trendy meal out.

We love Asian food. The sushi at Bamboo was delicious. The rolls were creative and perfect mixtures of flavor. Loved it. So good, we went twice!

But they have it all . The food is great and the staff likes to have fun. You don't hear them complaining. Always busy, great vip tables in the bar but plan ahead or grease one of the bartenders.

We arrived fairly early in the evening without a reservation, and they told us if we could be out in an hour and a half, they could seat us. They weren't very busy at all, so that was a bit puzzling, nevertheless, we did manage to eat and leave within the allotted time frame, although we had no control over... More

Not to be missed if you like sushi and Asian cuisine. This is an upbeat lively atmosphere offering Asian cuisine as good as I have had anywhere in NYC. It is always busy so be sure to make a reservation.

I've been traveling to SXM for longer than I can remember and for years I avoided Bamboo Bernie's assuming it was a tourist trap-- poor quality food at a high price tag with a great location. Boy, was I wrong. This place is delicious! Although reservations are recommended, they are very good about fitting you in if they have any... More

I had visited this place a few times over the past few years. This was the last. We arrived (a party of 3) about 830 on a Saturday eve. The hostess said "Do you have a reservation?" I said "no". After a huge eye roll, she said I'll be back. In the main dining room it was about 75% empty.... More

It can get any better, honestly. Great atmosphere, loud, fun, and the widest range of fresh sushi on the Island. Super sushi, sashimi, maki, and hand rolls. As good as you can get anywhere, even in Europe and America. Very creative presentations. Excellent service. Attentive and accommodating. It is really difficult to recommend any one dish - they are all... More
