This a typical tourist place More emphasis on history, decor and being So called number one in Tampa than on food. Kitchen tour will show you that this is a factory. There is no sophistication and love in preparing your food. Good that you see the meat trimming and cooking after you ate. Otherwise you might have had lost your... More

I have visited Tampa many times and always forget weeks in advance to make a reservation. This time I remembered. Located in a area that is very popular so traffic can be tough and must use their valet which cost $5. Once in we were taken to a lovely room quickly and service was excellent. Menu is interesting to navigate... More

5 PM reservation, seated in a dining room that was cafeteria style, rows of long tables according to party size with center isle. We were up against a wall at a table for two with a table of four arms' length away, so this room was inappropriate for two. As the room filled up it became quite noisy. We ordered... More

While there are many "steak houses", Bern's is a great dining experience including the tour of their wine cellar! The steak tartare, onion soup house salad and twice baked potato all provide a great chorus supporting a most tender and delicious Delmonico! Can still taste the deliciousness! Mmmmm. Service is excellent and the ambiance brings you back to a vintage... More

To be fair would give 4.5. We had a great time at Berns. The service is incredible. We had a 9 o'clock reservation and were seated at about 9:25. The French onion soup was good. The salad was very average. The baked potato was good. The vegetables were average. The onion rings were great although not very hot. The star... More

We got there Tuesday night without reservations at 6.30 pm and it was already packed. We where offered a table in the lounge area, and took it. Our dinner was spectacular as usual. You can never go wrong when you order steaks at Bern's. Another nice treat is that all entrees include salad, French Onion soup, baked potato and crispy... More
