Our server was inexperienced and the menu was much smaller. Nice touches like a cookie plate at the end of the meal was replaced by a card signed by the staff for our anniversary. I will be going somewhere else for special event dining.

The bar is gorgeous and it’s a cute sate night spot. What I disliked was that we made a rez for 8 but when we sat we had to order everything at once bc of the kitchen closing…. I felt rushed. Aside from that the food was very good. The mussels were not that great though, more spice was needed… I’ll be back though!

Overall we enjoyed our experience but the feedback from our party was that it was a bit ‘old school’. Menu was very limited for the vegetarian in our party (one choice for entree) even though that was highlighted during booking. All other members of the party enjoyed their choices

The hostess , waiters & cook were nothing but the most spectacular with making me and my date have a night we both wouldn't forget. The scenery and the live music being played by the pianist made it all a very special night. Thank you Bernards Inn!

While the food was excellent, the ambiance is entirely different. While there was really nothing wrong with it, it lacks the “specialness “ it once had.

Atmosphere could not have been more special (ask to sit in the bar area balcony if you want something intimate but with a lively view). Service was professional, knowledgeable and personable. And the food! Beet salad with whipped goat cheese to start -- beets freshly roasted. My duck delicious and cooked perfectly. Ice cream made in-house and absolutely amazing. Wine list had an incredibly varied selection of by-the-glass options. So nice to see! This is a restaurant completely recovered from the trials of the last few years -- go an enjoy an incredible dining experience.

It was a wonderful dining experience on our previous visits. This visit was very disappointing with the service (15+ minutes to get water) and mediocre food for the high prices. I doubt we'll return.

The service was terrific. The appetizers were great, the desserts were delicious. However, the main course was average. I had the pork chop which was on the dry side, my wife had the sea bass and it was lackluster. I would absolutely give it another try.

Things started off OK. We were seated right next to where the staff entered and exited the kitchen and the music that was piped in wasn’t exactly mellow background dinner music. The music thankfully stopped when the live entertainment arrived in the bar area. The dinner food was wonderful, the desserts just OK and thus not worth the calories. The service started fine, but as soon as other tables were seated, our table fell off the server’s radar. We saw his back a lot, it would have been nice if he had glanced over to us to see if we were trying to get his attention. Maybe the Bernards Inn needs more servers during prime time Saturday nights.

This was our first time back at the Bernards Inn since the March 2020 lockdown. So happy that the restaurant made it through the pandemic and has maintained the quality of food, service and ambiance. HIghly recommend the Salmon Tartare appetizer and the Chilian Sea Bass Cassoulet.

Excellent cocktails, and fairly priced wines by the glass. Food was good but not great, not like the Bernards Inn of old. Mussels were okay but broth could have been hotter. Pork chop main dish was overcooked and uninspired with a glaze reminiscent of, well, any other restaurant. Ice cream dessert was solid, good flavor and you could tell it was homemade. Service was overall good, but spotty at times when we found ourselves waiting for drinks as we stared at the enormous bar just feet away. The scene was lively and energetic, a welcome respite from the odd and isolating feeling of COVID era dining. But I long for the glory days when Chef Heyer manned the stove, when the food WAS the destination - and it did all the talking.

Our waiter Robert was super professional, attentive and friendly yet non intrusive which is an art form! The other servers were also courteous The guitar player provided lovely music. Food was great and the vanilla ice cream…. Whoa!!! I would love a gallon please!!! Kudos to the pastry chef for that! We were celebrating our marriage earlier that afternoon. Thanks… we will be back.

No lush carpeting but rather a cold linoleum floor. And the decorations were very scant. The menu could have used some more entree choices. Overall the meal was good, but not quite great. And their wine prices are pretty high.

The service was caring & good. Due to the “times” - the ambiance was not the upscale feeling that it once was, which I’d understood. A bit surprised that the staff did not wear masks. The music was outstanding! Our “special occasions” were acknowledged nicely.
