About the restaurant
Perfectly aged steaks, one of the largest wine collections in the world, and an internationally famous dessert room. These elements have combined since 1956 to provide guests with a unique culinary experience. Prime steaks are cut to order, vegetables are grown locally on the Bern’s farm when available and sourced from the finest purveyors, and the menu includes 20 choices of caviar. Each visit to Bern’s Steak House takes you on a gastronomic adventure that defines Bern’s not as a meal but as an experience.

Dinner at Bern’s isn’t really a meal. It’s an experience in a wonderful way. It’s intimate, full of history, the service is extremely personal and thoughtful, and what we had to eat was extraordinary in its plating and deliciousness. To get the complete experience i would highly take the tours of the kitchen and wine cellar. The dessert room setting is fun in that each table is in a space surrounded by California Redwood timbers from wine casks. Definitely a special occasion place and I’m looking forward to the next excuse i can find to go again.

The food and service were awesome! For the appetizer we started with the calamari and potstickers, they were absolutely delicious. We also enjoyed the scallops and shrimp risotto for entree and the risotto with ribs and everything was amazing! Chloe, the Manager is fantastic! She truly is the best Restaurant Manager in Tampa Bay!!! ☀️
