The experience was very interesting especially the wine cellar tour. The french onion soup was delicious but a little heavy on the cheese. Grilled asparagus was good as was the baked potato. Steaks are hand cut at the time you order but despite being dry...More

Food and service is excellent but we also go for the experience. When we have friends from out of town they love touring the kitchen and wine cellar and also love the dessert room. The meals are priced well but beware of the higher cost...More

This was overall the best dining experience I've ever had. The food and service was excellent. The tour of the restaurant and wine room was what put it over the top. Then going upstairs to the dessert room.

Bern's is timeless and an event!! Make sure if it is your first visit to do the kitchen tour and visit the wine room. Don't forget to book the dessert room and enjoy an after dinner experience unlike any other!

I had a filet, ordered medium well (I know - not a real steak person!). It was black on the outside and red on the inside. My companion had a ribeye that was more fat than meat, but cooked as ordered. The dinner salad was...More
