Pleasant EveningMy wife and I joined two other couples for dinner recently. Lovely neighborhood restaurant. Food was outstanding. Seating was a little tight for six and service was a little inconsistant, but the food more than made up for that. We really think that this is a charming little restaurant. I recommend it for sure.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMchange of mindwas there several mos ago
not impressed, very pricey based on on what u got for your $
decided to try again only because we had some coupons
still a little pricey however food and presentation were excellent
service also very good
definitely will return even without coupons6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding foodA newer menu & spectacular presentation. Same snarky waiters. Sub staff servers are terrific. Bernardo's is at a whole new level.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable DiningWe were seated in the smaller room on the side and loved it. Quiet and great for being able to have a conversation. Service was impeccable, attentive, and catered to our wishes. We liked the escargot with the fresh bread very much. Our entree was the braised short ribs with mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables and it was beautifully presented, very tender and flavorful. No wonder that Bernard'O is so successful for more than 2 decades. A true neighborhood gem!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMI go there several times eachI go there several times each year. The food is always good and it is very reasonable.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Overall ExperienceMy husband and I used to go to this restaurant every year for Valentine's Day. but had not been for very many years. We decided to go for our anniversary this year and had as wonderful an experience as we remembered having in the past. The menu had a great selection of interesting food combinations which were delicious as well as being plated very artfully. It was difficult to decide on what to order. The service was very attentive. Overall dining at Bernardo's was a great experience and we look forward returning for future special occasions.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't Miss Bernard O!We really enjoyed the whole experinece. All staff were very accommodating to our requests. The food was enjoyed by all.
It was attracively presented and well prepared. I would definitely return to this restuarant. Its a real gourmet find in a shopping
center.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love to come here whenWe love to come here when we're celebrating a special occasion ... or not so special. The food and service is all you would expect from a "Best Of San Diego" restaurant. Kudos to all who made our birthday dinner memorable. Thank you.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place for a very good mealWe had a friend in town for the evening and French sounded good to all of us, so we took him here. We all thought the food was delicious. My spouse started with the seared ahi, while I had the onion soup. Both were very good. For entrees, we had the Scottish salmon, the halibut, and the braised short ribs. The server was very good about our friend's requested modifications. We thought the total bill for our meal was quite reasonable considering the quality of both the service and the food itself. We will definitely keep Bernard'O in mind for future dining.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great Anniversary DinnerWe were greeted with well-wishes for our anniversary. Our server provided useful information about our choices. We loved our yellow and red beet salad with goat cheese appetizer. I would definitely return for the Scottish salmon and broccolli accompaniment (great preparation!) and my husband was pleased with his fish as well.. We want to come back to try more of the menu and would reccomend BernardO's without hesitation (unless you are between 18 and 25).5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice experience withVery nice experience with good food and un rushed quality service.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMEggs Benedict to die for!The service was very good and the food spectacular - best Eggs Benedict I ever tasted!

I am glad they are located here in north county inland!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat choice weekdays, not weekendsWe were seated on a Saturday night at 6:30 for a table for four. The dinner was wonderful, service courteous and the appetizers and entrees fabulous. I had two negatives. I ordered wine by the glass, a merlot, one of my favorites, their most expensive by the glass, and it tasted like vinegar. The bartender swore it was a new bottle, so I give him the benefit of the doubt and believe the wine had turned in the unopened bottle. All was great until we ordered one desert and sat for 40 minutes with no desert service. We finally told the server to take the desert off the bill as we were leaving. The bill still reflected the sour glass of Merlot and had to be adjusted, the waiter adjusted the bill but forgot to return our credit card.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasantly SurprisedFirst time we had been back since a VERY BAD experience on Valentines Day about 6 years ago. It was a slow night, which might have helped; but the service was very good and the food and presentation were excellent.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual, Bernardo's did aAs usual, Bernardo's did a fantastic job for Christmas Eve dinner.
