Delicious food and drinks! Worth every penny that you spend! We got the Baked Alaska and Bananas Foster and both were fantastic!

Expensive, but well worth the trip. Truly an experience in itself. It is a separate, upstairs part of Bern's Steakhouse and would be a great experience even without dinner first. The dessert list is extensive, and we have tried many varied items, and all have...More

Excellent; this is a must when visiting Tampa. It's our understanding it's also past President's "go-to" place while in Tampa, as well! Stellar. Make it a whole evening by starting downstairs with appetizers, steaks, martinis, and wines and end here.
