Service was great. Drinks were great. My curried lamb was too spicy but overall we enjoyed it.

Bernadin's always delivers. Arrived early and, after a quick temperature check, sat at the bar awaiting my party. Was treated exceptionally well by staff and bar tender. Asked for a particular server - Megan- and although her tables were booked, the restaurant worked to accommodate my request. Drinks, appetizers, steaks, desserts, and service were all perfect and delivered with professionalism. I've eaten at Bernadin's multiple times and never been disappointed. Will definitely return and would HIGHLY recommend.

Food is absolutely amazing!!!! Service was a bit on the slow side, waited 15 minutes to put in a drink order and had to ask for silverware after appetizers came out. The kitchen was 100% on point though, everything was delicious!

Bernardin’s Restaurant in Uptown Charlotte is a gem. They serve some very exotic dishes like Ostrich.
I had the lamb chops, which were excellent and cooked just right. James, the manager, is really a great guy and very thorough. I recommend Bernardin’s very highly.

Better steak than at steakhouses! Very flavorful! And you can't beat the pricing. The staff is excellent, and they even validate your parking.

This was the best fine dining experience I have ever had! The host and waiter treated us like royalty and genuinely cared about our experience. The food is Divine! Everything was great, but if I had to pick a favorite it would be the Emu that my husband ordered. (Yes I ate off his plate too! Lol). The drinks were full bodied and they didn't cheap out on the alcohol. The waiter Scott was knowledgeable and assisted us in our choices which were all spot on. Even one of the owners brought our food to the table when they learned we (hubby and I) traveled nearly 3 hours just to eat there. It was more than worth the drive! Will definitely be coming back...often. Bernadin's is Fine Dining at is Best!

We had a very enjoyable meal and experience at Bernardin’s. Sadly, COVID is having a significantly negative impact on the restaurant industry. We were the only patrons in the restaurant at 12:45 pm but to Bernardin’s credit and passion for excellence our server and the chef never waivered in making our dining experience great. We all need to support our local restaurants now more than ever to keep them thriving in our communities.
