We wanted a place for a two day post wedding gathering. Bern’s was perfect. Great steaks. They gave us a private room. The best steaks ever. We also went to the dessert room.

Really great food at a reasonable price. Service was great. Potatoes are amazing as well as the steaks! Place is a bit dark could use some updating. Thought we were at the Haunted Mansion at Disney!

Opened in 1956, how did I miss this place on prior trips through Tampa? Fabulous food - farm to table, the largest privately owned wine collection in the world and a wait staff with extensive knowledge. They quickly accommodated my gluten and dairy allergies. After...More

I think it must have been an off night for our waiter, James. On previous occasions, I was asked about a reservation in the desert room or offer of the kitchen/wine cellar? We were interested in both but it felt a little like an inconvenience...More

I’ve been really impressed by the places I’ve dined in Tampa but Bern’s raised the bar again. Not because the food would win them multi Michelin star status but because the overall experience is just amazing. The food is very, very good and everything you’d...More

Not a cheap evening, but well worth it. It’s an experience really, one to be treasured. The steaks and sides were excellent. The wine list was almost as big as a phonebook (ok, not quite). Staff are first rate. The decor has an almost European...More

We've enjoyed many fine meals, in numerous great eateries. That Rib Eye was as perfect as anything natural could be.
