From appetizer to dessert , hands down the best dining experience we’ve had in a looong time! We started with martinis and an old fashion. Lovely. Next we dined on the goat cheese tart and escargot . The burned butter garlic sauce was delish! I sopped up every drop with my roll! I tried the emu which was a first for me. It tasted very much like beef! The scallops were crusted as they should be. The lamb chops were Maoist as well as the duck breast . All the veggies were wonderful accompaniment . The spiraled beets fantastic. Finally over coffee, the chelate tort proved much too rich to eat and was brought home. A favorite , crepe brûlée did not disappoint as well.
I’m definitely coming back to my new favorite restaurant !
Oh, fun fact. Since it was my birthday my dessert was free!

Service was friendly. Food was outstanding, and priced fairly. Good selection of wines, also fairly priced. Tough choices on the menu because so many items looked so good. NE Clam Chowder and Sea Scallop appetizer; pepper crusted filet mignon entree; chocolate torte for desert. Only downside was the noise level, which was quite high at times. Will definitely return, and look forward to trying other menu items.

Here's a honest review!

The food here as always was absolutely amazing!!! I had the escargot appetizer and the grilled emu and my tongue about beat my head silly. However, ON WHAT PLANET are two double Woodford Reserve bourbon $52.00? I dine regularly in Raleigh where the total for my meal (food and three double Woodford Reserves) is $53.53 TOTAL!!!. Please come here for the food. IT IS AMAZING! And when you come, by God order water!!!!!

This was my first time visiting for lunch. My guests and I were very happy about the food. Social distancing was in full effect. The food was just as yummy as it was eye appealing. My guests said they will definitely come back. I think of this place as Uptown’s hidden treasure. And I will be back for lunch more often. Kudos to the whole staff. Thank you for making our visit so nice.

Went to brunch here but had a very disappointing experience. We were sat at a table that wobbled horribly. It took over 10 minutes for a waiter to greet us despite the lack of a crowd. When drink orders were finally taken, it took even longer for the waiter to bring the drinks. My coffee was delivered luke warm. Eggs that were ordered over easy had firm yolk. Bacon was over cooked. English muffins were burnt. It was overall a very disappointing experience.

The service was par excellence! The food overall was excellent. The main courses were just great, as was the bread … mmm. The dessert offerings were limited, but what we chose were very good. The beer offerings were also limited. The ambiance was great and very enjoyable!

My friends and I have eaten at Bernardins before for restaurant week and we enjoyed it. I decided to book the restaurant in celebration of an anniversary. The staff was nice although I think they were new because they didn’t really know the menu. The food was delicious, I got the duck breast served with red cabbage and polenta cakes. The only thing I didn’t really like was the truffle Mac and cheese. I loved the wine, I got sparkling red moscato) and creme brûlée for dessert. Overall, nice experience I give it a 8.5/10.

Allison, our server, made the dinner even more enjoyable. Her attentiveness, without being cloying, humor, abundant information and suggestions, guided us through a great evening. We were on a time crunch to get to an event and she helped us achieve that. We look forward to returning for a more relaxed evening the next time.
