After dinner at Berns, be sure to request dessert upstairs. It is a special, and unique, experience. It will top off a most wonderful evening. All dessert menu items look to be delicious. I had the ice cream. Terrific!

This room is magical and waiting for a night out celebrating a special event or making a feeling happen. Each group has their own privacy with tables made private by locations and music playing on the piano and delicious yummy sweets!

My all time favorite dessert is the Macadamia Nut Ice Cream, so creamy and delicious. Do yourself a favor and try this when you go. I head they even sell it as an item you can take home. Yummmm

The desserts are incredible, and you get your own room to eat them in. But the service was poor and they had the gaul to charge for extra hot fudge. Bern's management needs to go upstairs once in a while and pay attention to what's...More
