Charming venue with character. The food was absolutely delicious and cooked perfectly. Like everyone right now, they were a little short staffed but didn’t miss a beat taking care of us. Will definitely add this place to my favorites in downtown Charlotte.

Food was great, and our server and the runners were so nice, despite being visibly slammed and moving as fast as they could. Fun place for a group!

We went for restaurant week and had a great experience! Ordered the Lamb shank and the chicken entree and both were fantastic!! Service was great! And they validated parking. We wanted to use restaurant week to try a new spot, and we're happy we found this one! Will return again.

We visited during Restaurant Week. The menu selection was great. The food was excellent. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and accommodating. One member of our party is Gluten Free. All questions were answered and appropriate choices were available. We were not rushed and enjoyed a very well paced meal with a good amount of conversation.

I planned a business lunch with a respected mentor and was looking for a spot that was just formal enough but a little more casual for lunch. I was very pleased with my experience at Bernardin's. From the white tablecloths (a real rarity these days) to the attentive wait staff the experience was just what I was seeking. The wait staff was very attentive but patient and non-intrusive as I caught up with my mentor. The lunch menu was very reasonably priced and varied. The service was surprisingly quick but I never felt under any pressure to finish and leave. My mentor and I both had an excellent Cobb Salad and a delightful cup of cold gazpacho. All in all a very pleasant and successful business lunch date. The only slight drawback was the restaurant becomes a little noisy when it gets full.

I will definitely come back again for a business lunch and I have suggested to my wife we should give Bernardin's a try in the near future for a dinner date.

We have had dinner at Bernardin's twice. Food is good but I wouldn't consider it remarkable. In a city with so many new options, this one seems stale. Most likely will not return.

Nice to see the same GM there after a couple of years. Cheria was an xclnt server. The Queens Fest Menu is terrific. Had the pork belly app, the "fall off the bone" lamb shank main and Do NOT skip the strawberry shortcake. It alone was worth the QF dining experience.

Cam in during restaurant week. Place was packed and took some time until we got to the table. Staff is working very hard.

Service was excellent, altogether, and the food was very good. Definitely not run-of-the-mill dishes. The lamb shank was amazing.

We really liked the restaurant. Presentation was fantastic. Food was delicious (fish a bit too spicy for my personal taste-- but well prepared). My wife had the surf and turf and the steak was truly perfection. I think the interior has so much character... however with all of the tables full, it was a bit hard to hear our conversation. Our server was moving the entire time to keep up with things on this busy night. BUT she was able to give us the attention we needed. Yes, I would have liked a refill of ice tea at the end of the meal, but she was doing better than most would have done! Glad we went, and we will return.

Our first visit to Bernardin’s and we are asking ourselves why did we wait so long? The occasion was Queen’s Feast. The food was amazing. The setting was cozy and charming. The entire staff was pleasant and friendly. This is our new favorite restaurant in Uptown Charlotte.
