I was really looking forward to going there to celebrate my celebrate my 75th birthday. Went with my son, daughter son-in-law and significant other. When we were arrived and were seated we were offered bread. We then proceeded to order drinks and food. That was the last time we saw anything in terms of bread. Service up to this point was good but nothing special. I won’t comment on the food ordered by my children or son-in-law. My significant other and I ordered two of each of the oysters on the menu. When they arrived we asked which were which and were told thy types by size but not by what was on the plate. We asked for fresh horseradish and were served overly vinegared prepared horseradish. We had to ask twice to get fresh ground pepper for one of the appetizers. I ordered pair special lobster pot pie which was actually a deconstructed pot pie. The lobster tail was way overcooked and tough, the potatoes were undercooked and hard. Under ordinary circumstances I would have sent the dish back. My significant ordered the pasta special which was mediocre at best. The ice cream dessert was very good and it was nice to receive a card and foxes chocolates from the staff. Overall I was very unhappy and shelf at the restaurant did not live up to its reputation.

Food is good but the portion was very small. Expensive. You can get a better value anywhere else in the area.

We started at the bar while waiting for the restaurant to open. Each got a drink. My wife asked for a drink that wasn’t on the menu and the bar tender created something to accommodate and it was delicious. We were seated for dinner right next to the bar, which we didn’t really care for but it is what it is. She tried the butternut squash soup and I tried the salt roasted beets for starters. She enjoyed her soup and the roasted beet appetizer was also good. For the main course I tried the mushroom cavatelli and she had the quinoa and kale salad. Again both were good. For desert we tried 3 of the deserts. The apple pie creme brûlée, the bread pudding and the chocolate mouse. The bread pudding was more cake like and dry but still had a good flavor. Over all it was a good experience however I felt for the money, it was over priced.

The Bernards Inn is a lovely spot for a celebratory dinner. We enjoyed drinks at the bar and dinner in the lovely dining room. Its a classy place with good food and atmosphere in Bernardville NJ.

We returned to Bernard's Inn for our anniversary, having been there several times before. It was just OK this time. We were surprised to see three empty tables at 7:00 on the Friday before Christmas. The food (steak for me and lobster for my wife) was satisfactory, not great. Wine didn't appear until we were halfway through our main course. We'll try another place next anniversary.

Great food, an extensive wine list and a table by the fireplace made for a lovely evening with friends at Bernards Inn that flew by too quickly!
