I ordered the crab cake entree. The cakes had a funny aftertaste and the crab was so stringy...unfortunately I couldn’t order anything else because our waitress never came back to check on us. The mashed potatoes and mixed veggies were really good though, I enjoyed eating it. The ambiance was nice but we were seated right under the most filthy nastiest air vent I have ever seen!!! There was at least 5 years of dust build up on the outside of this vent...and sitting directly underneath it did not help matters.
James was our waiter and he was terrific. We had a round table as requested. It was a delicious delightful dinner
The menu and feel of this restaurant was unique. You do not often find Kangaroo on a menu. We have more typical menu items in the filet and salmon dishes. However, they both were uniquely prepared. The atmosphere was nice but a little loud for a restaurant that seem to otherwise be the perfect spot for a romantic dinner or same gathering of friends.
This was my second time eating here, and I would recommend this restaurant. Can’t wait to go back
The food was excellent. My reservation included my husband’s birthday- they didn’t remember-but he loved the food!
Nice place for a quiet dinner catching up with friends.
Great place for lunch as well.
My favorite restaurant in Charlotte! Food and service are always on point.
We always have a great experience at Bernardin's and this was no exception. Friendly, efficient service but not inrusive. Fresh food prepared with a flare. We love it for special occasions and when attend events at the Knight Theatre or Bechtler.
Unusal menu...delicious food! The ambiance was lovely and the service was excellent.
Food was great as well as the service!!! Celebrating special moments here is wonderful and will do it again!! Thanks!
We couldn't more please with the overall experience.the food was amazing,so was the service provides to me and my friend. We are definitely coming back!
My wife and I had a great time on our date and after enjoying their food and customer service, we plan on returning with our family and friends
We come to the restaurant every month after attending Jazz at the Bechtler. The food and service are always great. We especially enjoy it when James is our server. He is so knowledgeable and makes the whole dining experience at pleasure!
Four of us dined following Jazz at the Bechtler. We all had seafood and each one was cooked perfectly; flavorful, beautiful presentation. Service was prompt, professional but well paced. A really enjoyable experience.
Came in early before show letting Maria know. Food, wine recommendations were spot on. My seared tuna and partners salmon were excellent. This is a go to spot for food, service and ambiance.
The restaurant is lovely. We had a nice evening.
Always love Bernadine's. Wonderful service and excellent menu.
Lovely restaurant across the street from the Knight theater. We were seeing a show so this was very convenient. A little pricey but for the area okay. Some very exotic choices on the menu like emu and kangaroo We opted for the chicken which was delicious.
Delicious food and excellent service! Look forward to dining there again!
It was a special couples night out. We got seated at the upstairs table and everything was great. Our friend over the food and the atmosphere., as we did. I love this place for special dining.
Great downtown Charlotte restaurant near convention center. Ideal for business lunch, service and food were excellent!
Service was great but a simple ceaser salad was absolutely horrendous.
Marie our server was awesome
Not fine dining. Mediocre food. Lackluster service. Missing all of the fine touches necessary. Example: We were the first serving of the night and the bathroom was dirty. Obviously not cleaned daily. Wastebasket full sink and floor dirty and loose toilet and paper towel rolls strewn about. Get your act together!
This was a simply terrific meal. We had fried oyster salad, foie gras spring rolls, crab-crusted sea bass, emu, chocolate torte, and paired wines. The ingredients were delicious, creatively combined and beautifully presented; everything was cooked perfectly, and the service was great.
We literally were completely surprised by this gem, the steak is absolutely amazing and the truffle Mac and Cheese has surpassed our previous favorite!
Service is second-to-none as well, Ask for James... he truly brings new meaning to creating the best experience for those special date nights!
Valentines Day Dinner. The tables were slightly crowded to accommodate more people which limited conversation.
Big turn off to walk in and see a sanitation score of 90%. Obviously I wouldn't want it hidden but the fact that it exist is a problem.
This is the second time in the past two weeks that I have eaten at Bernardin's, and the food was excellent. I have had the clam chowder, grilled chicken salad, and the grilled chicken fettuccine - all were solid and top shelf. The setting is very intimate, and it is perfect for a great lunch date or special occasion. The staff is very attentive and are quick to serve refills and extra bread as needed. The meal arrived perfectly each time, and the portions were just right for lunch. I was full and did not need a to go bag. In addition, the service was so well paced that the experience fell in line with the time that I had for lunch.
Wonderful Experience. Looking forward to returning
Count on Bernadin’s to impress! Food and drinks were fabulous... our party was too large for the window booth but kudos for the hostess giving it a try. Maria was the perfect... patient server. We will be back soon!
We had a great time, the service was great. The food was wonderful.
Great waiter. Was extremely attentive and knowledgeaknowledgeable. Good was good. I had the EMU. Was well prepared.
food was excellent. Service was marginal. Seemed like the waitress had too many tables. Understaffed.
It was a very good experience there. Will definitely be back.
My husband and I were very pleased with the service and our meals. We were going to a concert across the street after dinner so our waiter made sure our drinks and meals came as quickly as possible. We will definitely be returning.
Fabulous food and service in an unpretentious environment with plenty of ambiance.
My wife and I surveyed the area online to decide where to eat before a show at the Knight theater. Based on the menu and the reviews, we decided to try Bernardin's especially since it is literally right across the street. We loved the ambience and James, our waiter, was perfect in orienting us through the offerings. Both the spring roll and the sea scallops appetizers were succulent and delicious. For the entree, we both settled on the Grilled Emu , since we had never had the pleasure. Mind blown! The cranberry madeira sauce was the perfect complement and made the meal memorable. I can't wait to find another excuse to drop in so that I can work my way through the extremely diversified menu and have another Blackberry Collins. I would highly recommend the experience to anyone who truly appreciates a night of fine dining.
They gave us a great table without us having to do anything special for it. It was a nice night.
