Food was amazing!! Loved the atmosphere and the history of Berns. You get a tour and history of their family experience. Wine cellar is a must see. Dessert room was fantastic!!

We were here on a Thursday night for dinner. We made a dinner reservation for 6:30 about a month and a half before. Arrived on time. Valet parking only. Seated promptly in the Burgundy Room. Our waiter was polite and knowledgeable. My family of four shared the Chateaubriand 30 oz. It was cut into individual pieces table side. Our salad,... More

There are plenty of other steak places that do as good or better a job without the arrogance and condescending attitude.

Over the years have eaten here quite a few times. Went tonight with some neighbours who hadn't eaten there before. They loved the experience and the food. I would recommend absolutely!!

we had heard of Bern's & decided to see if it's all that we'd heard. from the outside, it's unremarkable. inside is very old school & dark. a huge staff & they are all great. for these old eyes, more light would have been good. the French onion soup was right on. we loved the salad & the house made...

The food, service and embiance are second to none. We have been frequenting Berns for years; it has always been at the the top of of the list for our preferred dining experience and one we always reccomend to others. We just visited with friends and relatives on 11/26/2016 and we were all in awe of another great dining and... More

Been here 5 or 6 times over the past 10 years. Quality has never changed. Absolutely great from top to bottom. They have a caviar menu. A wine cellar boasting tens of thousands of wines. They even grow their own veggies. Getting harder and harder to get quick reservation. Word has spread over the years.

This is the best restaurant in Tampa by far. At.mosphere, service and food is over the top. Don't miss the desert room and wine cellar tour

Without a doubt one of my favorite places ever. This was my 5th visit in 15 years and it never gets old. The food is great, the prices although a little expensive, are very good value! All dinners come with everything. The wine list is the best in the world - really. After dinner tour the kitchen with incredible wine... More
