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.
William the server....yikes
Bernie's is a great option for entertaining business colleagues or for a special friend. The rooftop is fantastic view, parking is convenient on the street and the service is always outstanding.
Great service, delicious food, and lovely rooftop.
Amazing food and great ambiance
I do realize that covid has had its impact on everyone and on local businesses, but I was a bit disappointed to find that Bernie's rooftop lacked the fun summer vibe of its past. We were seated at a large black metal table with no flowers, not a tablecloth or even placemats and the bench seats along the walls had no cushions. Napkins and silverware where brought to us almost as if an after thought. It was all very sterile and I felt like I'd shown up where I wasn't expected and given whatever was available (despite reserving 2 weeks in advance). The menu was minimal - no brunch menu available on Memorial Day?!? (And despite having two kids with us, we had to ask for a kids' menu which doesn't have a vegetable on it!) Thankfully, my avocado toast with a poached egg was tasty.
I've always enjoyed my visits there in the past so please bring back the old ways and entice me to come again!
Service was excellent! Staff took the time to read and take into account my personal message sent prior. Drink options were in abundance. Only negative would be the small portion sizes of food. Besides that, great overall and will definitely return for another visit!
We had a great time eating here the other night! Good food and drinks, beautiful rooftop patio with heaters, and excellent service. Shout out to our waiter, Zach, who was awesome and super personable and definitely made our visit special.
The food was good, but a little overpriced. When we got to the restaurant, we asked to sit outside in the sun. We were told that those tables were reserved for larger parties and therefore we could only sit in the shade outside. There were 4 of us seated at a table outside and it was chilly. We were at the restaurant for over an hour. Once we had been seated at our table for about 20 minutes, we asked our server if we could move tables to sit in the sun since there were three open tables. We were told that we could not because those were reserved for larger parties. Instead, our waiter turned on the heater and moved it close to our table. While we were eating, a group of four adults got seated at the table next to us in the shade. A couple of minutes later, this group of four (the same size as our group) moved tables to sit in the sun even though they came after us. The whole time we were dining, the tables in the sun did not have guests while we were chilly in the shade. This was discrimination based on age which I don’t completely understand because at the end of the day, we are paying the same amount for food and tip the waiters the appropriate amount. The restaurant should be more courteous to customers- no matter who they are. It was disappointing to experience.
Very good drink, excellent food and great service!
Short staffed on servers. Bartender awful.
Took a bit for server to come over. But- this place wasn’t our scene. It’s young rich gossip girls lol, food is outstanding though.
Great lunch! Awesome service.
Bernie's has the best design your own salads! We have always enjoyed the service, staff and food!
Great outdoor patio space, well spaced out. Great drinks and food! Order extra pita with the hummus, you’ll want more!
We had seen Bernie's as we drove by to our new apartment. So we are new to the neighborhood and it was our first trip. The wait staff was very pleasant, but they had shared responsibilities instead of assigned to tables. So we sat for a long time several times waiting to put in our next drink or food order. Other than that the burger was excellent.
Came here for Mother’s Day brunch and the food was unbelievable! Very cute spot. We weren’t able to go to the rooftop due to rain but the inside is so cute and everyone’s meal was top quality food. You can tell the ingredients are fresh
Waiter was wonderful, the food was great. We had the French Toast and the Skillet that you design yourself. Both were phenomenal!
Great service and drinks
I went for brunch to celebrate my birthday with a friend. for view was gray, it’s perfect for the girls for a brunch date!
Awesome vibe and waitress was a awesome too! Nice place to sit and chill
Great rooftop, quiet and fun!
Had an 8:30pm reservation and didn’t sit down until 9pm. We immediately ordered drinks, which took 30 minutes to arrive at the table. 2nd drink took same amount of time so we asked for our check. Waiter was not apologetic and made excuses.
Great food and ambiance. Service was a little slow, wait staff awesome.
was not fun did not like the food prices did not match the taste of the food will not be going back
f*cking phenomenal people and food. be back soon.
Meet Up group get together
Super cold, almost no service, food was ok but not their usual. Sad.
Service was sadly a let down again. Lamb hummus is as good as they say.
Hostesses were quite fun....food was awesome as was the service. Will definitely be back!
A wonderful restaurant. Excellent wood-oven pizza, and equally great spaghetti with meatballs.
