* It's our goal at Bernie's to provide each and every one of our guests with a unique, and memorable experience. We aim to be a meeting place, a center for gathering with friends and family. A place where every person walks away satisfied. Not just happy with the cuisine, but by the time spent with us.
First of all Zach is amazing! The food was good. Small but filling portions! I would definitely come back!! And the rooftop is gorgeous!!
Looove this place! The food was delicious icious, the staff was wonderful, and the rooftop was such a great place to have dinner. Will definitely be going back!
Love this place! The food is amazing and they have great rooftop!
Reggie and I sat at the bar and had lunch and it was awesome !
Good food, nice rooftop and great frose! Servers very nice. Bathrooms could use a deep clean.
Great food with a great atmosphere! The cocktails were wonderful!
We returned for brunch because we loved the food and it was a beautiful day to dine alfresco. Our wait staff were very attentive and the manager personally served us our bottle of Champagne. We’re adding it to our favorite places to dine in Chicago.
the service is bad enough to not come back. unless you're standing at the bar, don't bother
Went to Bernie’s to celebrate my last day of work at my current company. We had quite a few more people than expected and though reluctant, their staff worked to accommodate us. Food and drinks were delicious as always and happy hours deals are far better than anything in the area.
The food is very good, especially the hummus. The bartender wasn’t very cooperative with providing our waitress with our drink order. The manager was notified and was very responsive. It was great dining alfresco on the rooftop. Despite the drink order issue, we’d go back again.
Sunday pre-show matinee brunch with mom. All was delish and fresh and not supersized which was wonderful as I hate food going to waste when plates unnecessarily feed two people.
Our waitress was very sweet even though we were a little ‘hangry’ when we first arrived. The aesthetic is very visually appealing but is a bit loud when they’re busy. The bloody Mary’s were admittedly an experiment according to the owner and definitely still need a lot of work.
Even without the issue of how long our food took for 2 people — longer than the table of 4 nearby that sat and ordered after us — when the food arrived our poached eggs were all visibly undercooked and watery. Poaching an egg doesn’t take long but the chef put 6 of them visibly undercooked on the two plates. We scraped them off with a spoon but we didn’t come for sautéed vegetable and hash brown skillets. That said, the ricotta donuts were incredible. All around a very disappointing 100$ brunch especially compared to past experiences with lunch and drinks.
The food was pretty good but the service was awful which ruined the experience overall. It was not busy when we went and our waitress did not take our drink order until 15-20 min after we sat down. Stay away from the Today We Bubble, it tastes like really sweet grape juice. Most of our table could not even finish it. I had to ask our Waitress multiple times when are drinks were arriving when I could see them sitting on the bar stand for 10+ minutes and they ended up not arriving until our food arrived. There are a lot better places in this city for brunch.
The decor and restaurant were really cool and eclectic. Cocktail selection was great. Went for brunch and the food was pretty good. Had the breakfast sandwich, pick your own skillet, and the donuts. Would recommend going again.
Great spot to sit inside or on rooftop. Slightly elevated food at good (not great price) price but if you take advantage of happy hour your money will go further. Not a place with a lot of options on their menu but all items we ate were solid.
All was great. Only thing is that scallops at $26.00 only had three scallops so a very small portion for the dollar. It was more like an appetizer
Loved the roof top and drink specials. Appetizers were very good
Enjoyed our time on the rooftop for a special date night. Huge portions on the entrees! We split the Amish Chicken and we’re blown away by the flavor and juiciness. Really like the deliver eggs appetizer. Would definitely visit again!
Great service, great food and great atmosphere!!! Loved it!
The food was incredible and we really enjoyed the restaurant overall!
We loved the food and ambiance but would have liked to have better service. They were short-staffed and busy and as a result, my husband’s order didn’t get put in. The manager was very nice and comped his meal but it was a bit frustrating for everyone else to have their food and he didn’t for a while after. Overall though, we would definitely give it another try! The food was amazing!!
Perfect spot for sunday funday. Ate our brunch inside where it was a little cooler and then went onto deck for some drinks. Perfect portions and food is really good. We enjoyed that there was a separate cocktail menu on the deck. Very summery and fun drinks.
Awesome service and great food! Highly recommend
Amazing food and service!
Roof top seating was great. Food was ok.
Very slow and uneven service. The food was delicious but the service was really disappointing.
We went because of the rooftop. But had rained in so it was closed. So disappointing. Food was good, only negative was my daughters steak had to be sent back because it was rare
Great patio and menu full of unique options. Something for everyone!
Great food and nice rooftop. Great place for a meal on a nice day in Chicago
Perfect for a brunch date. We sat on the rooftop and it was absolutely amazing. Will be back!
Excellent! We came for the Bernie Burger (which we are obsessed with) and ended up obsessing over a new favorite - hummus with Lamb! Our server was super and even surprised us with a little something sweet after dinner.
Bernie’s hits the mark again! 5/5 a must!!!
We didn’t have a server for a while when we first got there but we weren’t in a rush. Eventually got helped. Good service really good food great rooftop
Really liked it! But was a little bummed by the table we were sat at on the roof top. Would have liked to not have been so close to where the food comes out - and there were multiple tables open as well. But overall very good. The turkey burger was 100!
The food and ambiance were delightful. We could have sat inside but the patio was too tempting and we were rewarded. I would definitely visit again, however, I'd visit when I had no where to be. We visited for lunch and it took 70 minutes to order and get our food so everyone should try Bernie's but not if you need to get back to work. Thanks!
Was there for lunch and ate on the rooftop. Cute space! Had the turkey burger which was great! We were in and out in 1 hour. Thanks!
Very pleasant experience eating outside on their rooftop patio. Will be back again.
Service was horrible. Food way overpriced.
enjoyed the rooftop ambiance. fun atmosphere. delicious drinks
I have been there several times, and I Love it! My only concern is the last 3 times they have missed something on someone's order. Food is Fantastic! Pleasant servers.
Only complaint...they should add heaters to the roof top dining. Food was fab!
