After hearing so much about Bern's we decided to drop by and see what the fuss was about. Having no reservation (do yourself a favor and plan ahead) we were going to sit at the bar but it was too busy. Luckily there was a table available in the lounge and we were seated immediately. After reviewing the biggest wine... More

This is a special events restaurant for our family for over 30 years when visiting Tampa. This was our first visit in over 5b years and simply put Berns Steakhouse is still an amazing experience! We enjoyed every bit of our dinner. Congratulations to all for another exceptional experience!!

Favorite birthday choice! Order a large steak and have it sliced to feed a group. Veggies and drinks are excellent. Traditional Tampa dining at it's best. Never disappointed here either.

My boyfriend took me out for my 41st birthday. The food was amazing, the wine selection was out of this world. I recommend taking the tour after you're meal and finishing up in the desert room.

Berns is a great restaurant and the best value. Considering soups, salads, and sides are all included. Great place to take friends and family from out of town. The kitchen and wine cellar tour is a must. Remember to visit the dessert room.

We were here on a Thursday night for dinner. We made a dinner reservation for 6:30 about a month and a half before. Arrived on time. Valet parking only. Seated promptly in the Burgundy Room. Our waiter was polite and knowledgeable. My family of four shared the Chateaubriand 30 oz. It was cut into individual pieces table side. Our salad,... More

There are plenty of other steak places that do as good or better a job without the arrogance and condescending attitude.

we had heard of Bern's & decided to see if it's all that we'd heard. from the outside, it's unremarkable. inside is very old school & dark. a huge staff & they are all great. for these old eyes, more light would have been good. the French onion soup was right on. we loved the salad & the house made...
