Top notch service. Unbeatable wine list. Nice steaks. Don't overlook the chicken bern. It's fantastic. If you can make room the dessert room is an experience all to itself.

I have been coming and entertaining here for decades now. It has changed over the years since Bern has left this plane but it is hard to beat. And the fish and organic vegetables are every bit as good as the steak. But for me?...More
