Wonderful food and service with lots of history. Highly recommend the kitchen/wine room tour and visiting the dessert room (yes, dessert room) . Expensive restaurant, but great for occasions.

Great experience dining here with the amazing wine cellar and separate dessert room (Baked Alaska was my choice) . What makes Berns a great choice is that it also delivers on the quality of their food . Service very professional but also friendly .
