Went for happy hour on the roof. Nice views, breezy, and a great value. Would come back.
Rude staff, terrible service. Slow and out of multiple items.
Great food. Our server Zach was great! Thanks for such a great place.
Bernies was okay. Maybe we went on an off night. My cheeseburger that they are “known for” was between the size of a slider and McDonald’s cheeseburger patty. And I think I got the bottom of the barrel on Friday, has to eat them with a spoon. Cute place, service was great
The Bernie Burger was sooo good!
great rooftop for summer lunch. The pita and humus appetizer is excellent!
First off, the food was AMAZING. I ordered the Salmon.
I can't quite out my finger on the vibe though. Our server wasn't bad but he was kind of hard to read. Being in hospitality, I try to make sure I am easy to read and welcoming. I didn't quite get that from the server.
The entire staff was so lovely and food was excellent as was the presentation.
I had reserved a table outside, but when I saw thunderstorms in the forecast, I called Bernie’s to see if we could switch to an inside table. The friendly hostess said no problem—and I’m glad we switched because the storms hit as soon as we arrived.
We enjoyed the hummus appetizer, and then spaghetti, mahi-mahi, and scallops entrees. Everything was fresh and delicious, and our waiter took good care of us. Fun cocktail list, too—we’ll go back during happy hour because they were a little pricey for us. Happy to highly recommend Bernie’s!
love this neighborhood gem!! you can never go wrong!!
This was our third time at Bernie’s and we were very disappointed. We had out of town guests and wanted to take them to one of our favorite brunch places. When we got our food the eggs, hash browns and muffin were all cold. When we told the manager it was cold he made an excuse about the avocado makes it cold. Which is not true because I had this before plus there was no avocado on the hash browns. He did offer to redo but at that point I just said no it was fine. I found it frustrating that instead of just saying I’m sorry I’ll take care of it he made an excuse. Waitress never apologized. I thought maybe they would comp our donuts but nothing. I will not go back again.
Second time there in 4 weeks, with diametrically opposite reactions: ordered a chicken panini that was wonderful first time, but dry, almost stale this visit. Service was also slow and impersonal, unlike earlier visit.
Great rooftop, great music, great food! And I can’t forget the unique and fun cocktail menu!!
roof ambiance was great, some of the breakfast items (english muffin/sausage sandwich were less than mediocre). donuts were fantastic
Our server was very accommodating. The salmon burger he recommended was fantastic. I always liked the devil eggs so that’s a normal appetizer that I order. My friend ordered the turkey burger and it came on a pita. The only downside would to be sure that is mentioned when a customer asks or orders it. Also, the name of the server is not on the receipt. There’s just a number of 2015 next to the word server.
Great staff and wonderful salads!
Food was good. Waited a very long time for our drinks. Very nice server, was friendly and apologetic for drinks/food taking a long time.
We were seated at a table that had waters left over from the previous party. I was told I had to wait for my coffee because there were no clean cups. The food was good though.
Bernies has became one of our favorite spots. We love everything about the place especially their New York Strip which is still the best steak I have tried yet.
Roof top table was ready on time. We shared a few small plates and split a couple pizzas. Everything tasted so fresh and flavorful, especially the hummus with lamb and homemade pitas!!! Also offered some unique, tasty mixed drinks. Will definitely be back!!!
Great food and service but couches on the rooftop need to be updated :-).
Delicious food every time!
Grab the hummus and lamb. Trust me!
Food was great and the decor is really fits the River North style. Service was really good in the beginning, but it took them a while to collect our plates when were finished. All in all, it was a really fun experience and will definitely come back!
I love this place. First time back since lock-down. Sharing food with friend was perfect so we could enjoy the amazing avocado toast, kale salad w/chicken, and fries. Server was fabulous. Rooftop deck on perfect Chicago summer day. Highly recommend!
Wonderful food and great service! We will be back!
Turkey burgers served on fresh pita bread are delicious. My friend's burger was undercooked, but the staff offered to make a new burger.
We loved Bernie’s, the best appetizer was the lamb and Hummus with Pita bread made in house. It was soooo good. I had the Gnocchi with Short ribs and my husband had sea food. My food was amazing. The rooftop was casual and it rained but we still where able to seat there comfortably. It’s a casual restaurant but very good food. I would go back again.
Great spot for happy hour!
Always a great experience on the rooftop for happy hour
The service was very slow; the manager came over and explained that our server just received a large table, so he took our drink order. 30 minutes later I stopped the manager and asked whether someone would be able to take our food order, so he sent "our" server over. She proceeded to act as though we just sat down, went through all kind of silly "Alexis-type" theatrics, took our order and disappeared. Someone else brought the food (after at least another 30 minutes) and we finally had to ask the manager for the check. Yes, it was Father's Day but there were open tables, it was not overly crowded. This could have been much better managed with better planning. We had a reservation for over a week. Very disappointing, likely will not return.
We went for brunch and it was one of the best brunches we’ve had (and we’re brunch people). Food is exquisite, drinks are unique and delicious and the service is top notch. We sat right next to the kitchen and the attention to detail was meticulous. Everyone was kind and very helpful. Strongest recommendation possible
Loved being on the upstairs terrace. Our meals were good. The service excellent.
The Hummus, Staff, The Ambiance ... One of my favorite places in the City
Great friendly service. Really nice birthday dessert presentation.
Great food and service. Rooftop
Great meal - low key atmosphere. Staff was pleasant.
Excellent rooftop. Great food
Loved the rooftop, friendly staff, good vibes and great food. The homemade gin and tonics were awesome.
