If on a budget, I recommend enjoying happy hour down the street at Havens then walking to Bern's for a sweet treat in the dessert room. The macadamia nut ice cream is ahhhhhh-mazing!!!!

Better get your reservation in now for the best steak and wine restaurant in Tampa. Good menu with a huge wine selection. Price is right. Soup,salad,potato and vegetable come with your entree. A must is the tour of the kitchen and wine cellar after dinner....More

I was so disappointed with my recent visit to Berns. I have eaten here 5-6 times over the last 20 years and up until now it was my favorite restaurant in the world so I was really surprised with my experience when I visited last...More

Very formal dining experience. Top notch! After dinner, make sure that you tour the kitchen and wine cellar. Dinner started with a French Onion Soup that was to die for! The portions were very generous. The CHÂTEAUBRIAND was on the dry side. When making reservations,...More

We love Berns so we were super disappointed last night when both our appetizers and steaks came out cold. Really Berns? I don’t mind dropping my cash here but for the cost it should be pretty close to perfect every time. We had the steak...More

5 stars is definitely an understatement for Bern's. It deserves at least 7. It is worth flying to Tampa just to have dinner there. The food is amazing, there is something every taste. The steaks were cooked to perfection and very reasonably priced. The wine...More

To become a waiter at this restaurant. They first work on the farm then clear tables until they finally get to be a waiter. So Yes, the wait staff is amazing. I really could have picked anything to title this review as they literally do...More

Great food and wine. What makes this a great experience is that after your meal you are treated to a tour of the kitchen and wine cellar. Added to that after the tour you are taken up stairs and enter a small private alcove of...More

This place is the bomb! Sat at the bar, great wine, super nice bartender. But no doubt, the steak was the main event. Got the bone in ribeye! It was a 10/10. Big juicy, nice carmalized edges! Perfection. Then we took the must see tour....More

Delicious Steaks of all kinds and sizes, Ridiculous wine cellar and selection, fantastic deserts and after dinner drinks in Desert room, and excellent service, all as always. I don't get to Tampa often so when in Tampa I must work my way to Bern's.
