The Bernards Inn is a beautiful establishment. The waitstaff is impeccable. The bar is simply gorgeous, and I love to stop in, and have a drink. I find having a meal there is less than satisfying. There is a lack of imagination if you will with the preparation of food, no interesting flavors jumping off the plate at you. It... More

We arrived with a party of six to celebrate a family occasion. The restaurant and the service were impeccable but the food so very disappointing. The Lobster Pot Pie had a few lumps of lobster in a soggy pastry crust on the bottom and a mélange of small vegetables in a sauce that tasted like a simple roux of burnt... More

We decided to enjoy the Bernard's Inn on our 5th Anniversary. We requested a king size bed in an area of the hotel facing away from the train station. We were in room number 10 which was beautiful and it was also blessedly quiet. When we came back from our dinner, our bed had been turned down and truffles were... More

Found this great place in Bernardsvile, NJ. Quaint stately and charming are good descriptors. The wine list was very good and the menu was even better. The chicken salad and garden salad were today's choices. Both a home run. I can only imagine a great dinner in this stellar establishment. Can't wait to return.

I discovered the Bernards Inn four years ago and have gone back to both the Inn and the restaurant several times since. The staff is friendly, the food elegant and tasty and the service impeccable. We went to celebrate an anniversary and it was everything we had wanted and expected. We will go back again and again no doubt.

Reception was nice in a very nicely decorate foyer. When the receptionist could not find our name, the manager immediately solved the problem. We had chosen to eat the fixed price meal. All three of us chose the same thing: Sauteed duck liver as an appetizer and slow-cooked duck as the main dish. The dishes were delicious to all three... More

I came here for dinner for my boyfriends birthday. We sat in their main dining room away from the bar. A very nice, elegant, restaurant. The food was very good. They have a nice drink selection.

Here all the time and one of our local go to spots. Never disappointed, great professional staff and management. And excellent food. Never ceases to disappoint us. Great for just dinner or larger family gatherings. Quaint and beautiful interior.
