Fabulous desserts in an intimate setting. The Banana Cheese Pie, $9.95, was original and delightful. Definitely a destination.

After a fabulous dinner, we decided to check out the famous dessert bar! I only wish I hadn't been so full, but I ate a dessert anyway. Next time, I will go for dessert only. The selection of desserts and wines is second to none!...More

Bern's may be noisy but the Dessert Room is just the opposite. Private, cozy and quiet with a delightful menu and after dinner drink list. A fitting end to a wonderful Bern's meal or enjoyed on it's own. Treat your self well now and then.

You cannot go wrong with anything on the dessert menu. And the private rooms are the perfect way to end the evening after the packed, hustle bustle of the dinner experience at Bern’s. The thing that makes me nuts about the ending to the evening...More

One of the most famous, and popular, aspects of Bern's Steak House is its dessert room. Here guests can enjoy a leisurely and intimate end to their dining experience choosing from nearly 50 dessert choices to more than 1,000 dessert wines and spirits. The Harry Waugh Dessert Room was built as a tribute to Mr. Harry Waugh, an internationally known and respected wine connoisseur, director of Chateau Latour and good friend to Bern Laxer. Waugh's books and personal diaries on wine tasting are well known throughout the world.
