This is a special place. Beautifully decorated, grand piano playing in the background matched by excellent service. The food was top quality too. If I'm ever within 50 miles of it again I will be going back.

Year after year, Bernard's stands up as the finest restaurant in Ridgefield. There's charming ambience, great service, and a new world menu that will knock your socks off. I really love the almond crusted halibut and the salad with cheese cigar sticks.
