“A Good Night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

We dined here many years ago and were very disappointed. Things have changed! The food was excellent, Service good, ambiance great and prices commensurate with the establishment. We will be back!

“Good place for business dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014 via mobile

Bernardo is a good place for business dinner. It's easy to get to in the Rancho Bernard area. Their service is generally good and do is the food. I would classify them as American French style. They do have a dining room that is good for largish group of around 12 that gives you more privacy

“French/American in a Cozy Setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014

This some of the very best French food I have had outside France. We arrived on an early 6:30 PM Thursday without reservation. Because seating inside wall reserved, we were seated on the patio next to the fireplace. We had to ask about specials and were then offered a $35 three course meal that was a soup or salad, two types of beef for the entre, and an outstanding dessert. The house red wine was outstanding with the dinner. Our waiter was young, attentive and knowledgeable. I would go back again.

“Very good, especially for a suburban restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013

Very nice restaurant. Small, independent. On-site owner/proprietor maintains high standard of service, quality, friendliness. Continental and American dishes. Thoughtful wine list, though many bottles are (in my opinioin) over-priced there were several gems such as the very good and very reasonable Rhone that I enjoyed.

“Has potential, but lacks refinement.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

This restaurant should be better than it is. Nice location, nice décor, nice menu, well prepared dishes, and good tasting food. The problem began when my wife asked for olives with her Martini and the waiter brought them and set them directly on the tablecloth. Then came our food and one of the dishes was not what we ordered, not even close. The meal was replaced, no problem, but it was supposed to contain heirloom tomatoes and there were none, just regular tomatoes. Food was warm, not hot. Dessert took 15 minutes from ordering to getting to our table.
