Wonderful food and service in the downstairs restaurant, though some of the desserts in the upstairs dessert room were not very good based upon the sampler I tried. Also, service upstairs is markedly slower and hard to catch your server when needed. Request for management...More

I travel quite a bit for work and usually pass on the overpriced steakhouse. I have historically found that all "Prime Steakhouses" are created equal. Once you been to one, you've been to all of them. This is not the case with Bern's. It is...More

You don't have to be Elvis to love food and you certainly don't want to miss out on the gustatory gusto that Bern's serves up, as it has done so for decades as Tampa's #1 steakhouse. Enter the front door and you'll think you've been...More

As always, dining at Berns is as much an experience as a meal. The meal is first rate and the service is second to none. The tour of the kitchen and wine cellar make a meal at Bern's different than meals at other high end...More

Have been to Berns many times over the years, and sad to say this experience was disappointing. Slow service, cocktails were not cold and skimpy on pour, table-side Caesar, not nearly as good as it used to be, and while my steak sandwich was tasty,...More

This is a classic steak house with impeccable service and exceptional and not expensive food. While the steaks start at around $40 and go to over $100, the food is not ala carte like a lot of high end steak houses. Each entrée gets a...More
