Eating at Bernard's is ALWAYS a wonderfully delectable experience! The food was outstanding this Mother's Day, as always. It's such a great treat! We completely enjoyed it and felt very safe with their 50% indoor capacity and plexiglass partitions.
A noisy table of six next to our table for two interfered with our enjoyment of brunch and our MD celebration.
Food was great. service satisfactory/
Wonderful Mother’s Day experience. Sarah and Bernard provide a warm and welcome ambiance accompanying an incredibly delicious menu. Memorable
Excellent Food Tip: go anytime for dinner but avoid the "Special" day fixed menus, you will spend twice the cost of an ordinary night & not have their extensive menu available.
Everything was great! Awesome food!
Perfect. Quiet and lovely. Excellent food and service. Loved the bacon sampler appetizer
Incredible food, the grilled octopus was amazing. Very attentive service and reasonably priced. We will be back soon
Greta food with even fantastic service (as always at Bernard's and Sarah's)
Lovely, elegant, and great spacing that is respectful of COVID
Bernards is consistently fantastic!
We love Bernard's and it is a wonderful place to go for a celebration meal. The food was great, the staff are attentive but unobtrusive and we had a great time.
We gathered as a party of 6 celebrating our first opportunity to reconnect with out of town family members for the first time since the shutdown. Our luncheon was outside in the garden on a stellar day. The service, food, ambiance was outstanding. Bernard’s never disappoints. I overheard another diner say the same as she and her husband were departing.
Service could be better. Our water glasses were empty most of the time. We had to wave multiple times to get a refill. Had to ask for bread and they came with one piece of cold sourdough bread. Our server was nice but we can see he’s overwhelmed by the number of tables he had to cover.
I am so grateful that Bernard's has been able to stay around during this awful Covid time. It is a truly civilized restaurant. The menu is interesting and the dishes are well executed. The ambiance is conducive to enjoying good food and pleasant conversation. Do not miss the deserts. I plan to hurry back soon now that they are open for both lunch and dinner.
Wonderful service, great food and loved the live music. It was a perfect anniversary dinner seated by the fireplace.
Wife’s birthday. Nice quiet table in corner; brought the champagne out as we arrived. Met by Sarah, one of the owners. Nice touches, and fabulous food and wine!
Bernard’s is truly a Ridgefield gem! Every time we have dined there, food/service is outstanding.
I Bernard’s is a consistently high end experience. I’ve never had a poor meal at this restaurant. It was especially nice since it’s the first time we ate inside a restaurant in a year. Safety protocols were in place. Our party had entrees of beef Wellington, lamb chops and cod. Everyone was happy with their meal
Our Easter lunch was excellent. This was the second time that I have eating at Bernard's
and this time was much better than dinner about 3 weeks ago.
Service was very good too, including the runners.
My family traveled from Katonah, and the trip was worth it.
Excellent food, service, environment but at these prices and with a 20% tip built in, the bill escalates quickly. At very least, a complementary glass of wine would be decent.
Excellent, food, service and ambiance.
Just the place for a celebration and special occasion. Worth every penny. We have been more than once and it continues to be our go to place whenever we want to experience the best.
Pianist on Easter was terrific backdrop for our family brunch. The service was amazing, food and it’s presentation spectacular. We will be coming back very soon. Thank you. My family including three kids thoroughly enjoyed the food!
Food was very very good as usual. However the service, while very polite and friendly, could have been more attentive. Bread took a long time getting to our table; long wait after drinks to first course; took a long time to get the check (we actually called the front desk to make that happen.) That said, we will return; it's a good place!
Was seated upstairs at SWB but made reservations for Bernards ? Was overdressed for SWB where most people were wearing sneakers and jeans .
Great , best service and food in ridgfield
My husband and I went for our wedding anniversary on Saturday night. We had a lovely time, beside the food being exquisite, the ambience with the piano player definitely makes a difference. The service was impeccable.
Can’t wait to come back.
Excellent restaurant for that SPECIAL occasion. Service and food was excellent. Accommodating to special dietary needs.
Eating out during Covid can be a challenge, Bernard's has figured it out! The restaurant is very clean, staff is extremely conscientious, partitions between tables for indoor dining, and outdoor dining options as well. The safety and cleanliness does not take away from the ambiance or the quality of the service and food. Dinner was delicious and rivaled any dish we had in France. The bread is excellent. We gave 4 stars instead of 5 on the food as the deserts were a little flat. The apple crumble was soggy and cold, the almond white nectarine tart didn't have any almond flavor, but the pastry was perfect. Excellent and encompassing wine list with something for everyone and every price point. We are looking forward to our next dinner at Bernard's.
What an amazing restaurant! The food and service were exquisite! We would recommend this restaurant to anyone!
The food is exquisite. Exquisite. You can get marvelous wines by the glass. The desserts are a treat. We sat by the fireplace, which was warm and cozy on a blustery day. The tables are a great distance from each other, so our conversations were very private, and I could be heard easily by my friend, without raising my voice.
Lunch at Bernard's was delicious and relaxing. Atmosphere is casual French and the meals are superb.
Nice restaurant. Trip was worth it.
Food was OK, not great. Service excellent. Good ambiance. Guitar ok, not great. Good place for special occasions.
We enjoyed Sarah's Wine Bar. While the menu was somewhat limited the variety available gave us all many acceptable choices. Food was excellent and very hot yet served in a relaxing manner, never a rush to turn the table. An added benefit was the live music. The guitarist provided some wonderful background music we all knew. Felt like we could have had a sing-a-long! From a CoViD perspective, tables were socially distanced and sheltered with very clean plexiglass barriers. Even though all our party had been vaccinated, we felt very safe. We look forward to visiting Bernard's again in th4e very near future. Thank you.
Food is always exceptional! Service is impeccable. Lovely to have the live music. Sarah's Wine Bar is always our go-to in Ridgefield. Never disappoints.
Superb dining in all respects. The food is sophisticated and delicious. The service respectful, prompt and meets the individual needs of the diners. I can't think of another restaurant in Ct that is its equal. The interior is beautiful, has barriers that did not amend the lovely dining room but provided safety for all. This is a superb restaurant.
This restaurant is either way over rated, or we hit a bad night. The service was sloppy and rushed. The food was poorly presented, just piled on our plates, and the fish and rack of lamb were barely acceptable. The plates were so hot that the food kept cooking until it was overdone and tasteless.
We will not return to this restaurant.
Always a special experience! Best staff. Best good. Best atmosphere great music. It was perfect for a special birthday!
