We choose the Bernards InnWe choose the Bernards Inn to celebrate my birthday and had a wonderful evening. Everything we had was delicious including the signature cocktails and wine selected for us by the sommelier. Between the two of us, we had: Porcini Ravioli, Grilled Octopus, Roasted Beets, Maine Lobster, Tilefish and Crème Brulee. Every dish was presented beautifully and tasted even better. The service was excellent but a little rushed. The wine list was extensive and the sommelier did an excellent job selecting the perfect wine for us. We could not stop talking about how great the food was! It was an expensive evening, but well worth it. A great place for a special occasion.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great meal to celebrateHad a great meal to celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary.

Went there for my wife's birthday and they did a great job. We went early(630) and it was not crowded until about 8:00pm. We had the tasting menu and it was very well done. We liked the whole menu. It was great.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMService and presentation notService and presentation not to be beat. Food can be served warmer., though for a Saturday night and busy, this should be expected.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMReally enjoyed our anniversaryReally enjoyed our anniversary dinner.

Because I made the reservation online, I had no way to ask for seating in the front dining room, where we have enjoyed our time before. When we arrived, we were escorted to the back dining room to a table for two banquette style table. Both my husband and I were disappointed, him more than me. I immediately asked the hostess if there might be a table up front. She agreed to check for us, returning saying she had a table one level down from the piano, which we have thoroughly enjoyed in the past.
We were taken to a spacious table by a window and though all but one of the tables was
occupied, the room was very comfortable with minimal noise.Our lovely evening unfolded from there.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing meal/experience.Amazing meal/experience. It was my wife's birthday and the Bernards Inn crew made her feel very special (including a special birthday dessert). We brought our 4yo daughter too, and the chef made her a special dish. Excellent all around!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was truly one of theThis was truly one of the best experiences I have ever had. The food was superb and the service impeccable. I can't wait to return!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our 45th weddingThis was our 45th wedding anniversary and we picked the Bernards Inn for dinner because it always has great food, a wine list with lots of options and the dining rooms having great ambiance. We were not disappointed. We both enjoyed the Black Bass with oyster escabeche. It was outstanding, crisp on the outside yet moist and flaky inside. My appetizer of fois gras was also very good. My wife's roasted beet salad with duck confit was also excellent.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were 2 couples and bothWe were 2 couples and both ladies were celebrating birthdays. The service was wonderful and everyone made both of us feel very special. All of the food was fantastic and we truly had an amazing birthday dinner. The piano bar area can get a bit noisy and we'd asked in advance to be seated as far away as possible. We were given a wonderful table where we could hear the music, but not the bar noise. The menu had a great variety to choose from and the Alaskan Halibut was one of the best fish dishes I've had in a long time. The lobster bisque and rack of lamb also got rave reviews from my dining companions. Getting a birthday card signed by the staff was a lovely way to end the evening.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMa great special occasion find!Booked table for a dinner with a VIP client. Seating and bar service was excellent with a good wine list, good wine-by-glass selections and some distinctive speciality cocktails. Pairings menu was inspiried but very pricey; to the chef's credit, nearly all of the tasting menue items were available a la carte.
Entrees were presented in a very eye-catching way and construction and thinking around the dish was peerless. My salmon dish was prepared exactly as asked; the fiddle head ferns and onions were a startling accompanment. Holandaise sauce, which can be all over the map in even fine resturants, was the best I have ever had.
Minor problem with bill was cleared up quickly, with appologies, and now fuss. A geat special occasion find.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely wonderful! TheAbsolutely wonderful! The only 1 downside, was that I wrote down that it was my fiancé's birthday on our reservation, and nothing was even mentioned. I found this unusual for such a high end restaurant.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely restaurant, good service,Lovely restaurant, good service, good food. A little pricey though. We were celebrating our anniversary and were given a card signed by the staff and a small box of chocolates. Nice touch.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFood not quite up to par.Food not quite up to par. Service excellent, though. Very few customers for a Wed. at 1pm. Losing its appeal? Not impressed overall. Used to be much better (AND busier).3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a wonderful place toWhat a wonderful place to meet friends, share a fabulous meal and terrific wine. Wines by the glass list is phenomenal. Will be back.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't wait to come back.Our experience at Bernard's Inn was wonderful. The service was amazing and friendly.

The food is innovative and delicious. The ambience is warm and welcoming. The wine list is extensive. Bernard's Inn is a true gem!2/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to the Inn for ValentinesWent to the Inn for Valentines Day with my wife and it was wonderful. Not the usual price fixe deal where you get a choice of two. Their Vday menu was more extensive than most places regular menus. The service was very good as always. It's definitely not cheap but worth the extra dough for special occasions. You know you are getting something for your money; something unforgettable.2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great experienceThe Benards Inn continues to offer an excellent experience with many great choices of food and wine. I was able to enjoy an affordable Wente Chardonnay for only $ 40 with our meal. The food quality is very high and portions are not small like other gourmet meals. Terri Baldwin knows fine wine and the staff offer top notch service with no attitude. No a cheap place but for those of you who enjoy fine dining this is always a great place to visit. If you haven't been here in a while now is the time to return.2/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a Great Night!Wow. I took my girlfriend here after she got a new job and this place was fantastic. First of all, have I mentioned the *61 page* wine list? The service, the food, the ambience were all top of the line. This is a fantastic place for special occasions. Highly recommended. It is *not* inexpensive. Be prepared to spend. It is well worth it.2/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
