The food is always amazing. Salmon cooked to perfection and the cilantro pesto chicken is a must!

Beautiful atmosphere and great work lunch spot for a group. We made a reservation the day before and were seated right way. Service and food we're wonderful, and prices were very reasonable for a sit down lunch.

Great in every respect. The tuna special and the Thai beef salad were amazing. Excellent wine selection too. Desserts sounded great but we were too full to indulge...but next time we will!

The menu is unreal and so different. It has items you can't get elsewhere. I hope to remember next time to call ahead and let them know I am coming and would be interested in the camel so they can prepare it ahead of time. The emu is awesome. Great place for a business meal or a date.

The parking situation was terrible. We had to walk back to our car (which was in the garage) outside in the rain because the building was locked.

The wine list needs major work. There are hardly any wines from the three major wine countries of the world - France, Italy, Spain.

Service was satisfactory but rather casual.

We'll not return to this restaurant.

The food was amazing! I enjoyed the adventurous menu and different meal choices. The presentation was very pretty and both my rabbit and husband’s filet were cooked perfectly. Our server was okay, which was the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 stars. I felt like for the caliber of restaurant, the server could have been better trained. My husband and I will definitely return for another meal, and, fingers crossed, will get a different server.

LOVE Bernadin's for so many reasons but the FOOD and service keeps us coming back. James is typically our server and he never disappoints. This is one of our favorite restaurants in town - the lobster ravioli and duck confit spring rolls are my favorites. For dessert, we had the peach/blueberry cobbler and bread pudding . . . absolutely divine, light and delicious.

I took my wife here for her birthday after walking past it many times and wondering what it was like. I finally made reservations and took her there and WE LOVED IT! We have not stopped talking about how good it was all weekend! I got the Emu, which was amazing, and there were so many other cool things on the menu that I wanted to try too! The staff was very friendly and engaging. It is a little expensive, so this will only be for very special occasions. We will defiantly be going back, though!

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.

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.

We got dinner here before the ballet at the Knight theater. We shared a salad that had a champagne vinaigrette - so good! I had the kangaroo and my mom had the scallops as our entrees. The kangaroo was amazing!! Mom loved her scallops. We will definitely have to come back. The menu is so eclectic. There was camel on special that evening that I would love to try.

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.

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.
