Bernie’s Kitchen | Bar| Cinema is a boutique theatre experience in downtown Kelowna, BC. Our screen plays a mix of retro and new(ish)-release films, and yes, you can enjoy them with some top-notch food and drink!

We’re excited to bring the movies back to Bernard Ave., but we also love a great meal. The first floor and mezzanine at Bernie’s are where you’ll find artisan cocktails, one-of-a-kind wines, local craft beer, and truly tasty dishes. Our dinner menu is a uniquely Justin Best creation, with influences from all over the Spanish diaspora and beyond.

Head up one more flight of stairs from the restaurant to find a cinema like no other. Comfortable and stylish seating, food and beverage options outside the concession norm (don’t worry, we’ve got the classics too), and of course, motion pictures that are sure to entertain!

Visit us at Bernie’s on Bernard for an unparalleled experience in the Okanagan. We’ll see you at the movies.

    Didn’t have the correct number for my reservation even though it was confirmed by email. Squished 9 of us into a booth that was only set for 8. And the server made sure to let us know that she had “nothing to do with reservations”. Rough start, food was good, drinks took a long time 8 ice tea. Forgot 1 of the meals . Server was pretty but so/so. Not what I expected service wise. Restaurant itself is very cool.
    Bernie'sResponded on June 5, 2024
    Sounds like we have some room for improvement! I'm really sorry we fell short during your visit. If you have any details you might be willing to share that can help us narrow down exactly what went wrong and address it with our team, we'd be grateful to hear them. The table you were at, server's name, or the name on your reservation would be really helpful. Not to get anyone into trouble or anything, but to hopefully learn from this experience and do better, like I know we can. I apologize for the mistakes we made over the course of your time with us, and hope that you might be willing to give us another shot someday. Regardless, thank-you for taking the time to bring these things to our attention.

    somewhat noisy restaurant - food was very average - both the main courses (shrimp tagliatelle and salmon) were quite overcooked; shrimps were hard, salmon was very dry - very disappointed
    Bernie'sResponded on May 31, 2024
    Darn - I'm so sorry to hear this! We certainly share your disappointment, as what you describe falls well below the standards to which we aim to hold ourselves. I know our Chef will be keen to hear your feedback and address it with his team. I apologize we missed the mark during your visit, and hope we might have the opportunity to welcome you again sometime and serve you a better meal. Thank-you for taking the time to share your experience with us.

    Don't take a table for 4 people that is small, pretty tight for your drinks and legs under the table. If you find the music too "energetic", ie loud, they can reduce it in the back area where we ate. I may go to a bar or pub and expect loud music but not in a restaurant where I go for conversation with others at my table.
    Bernie'sResponded on May 23, 2024
    Thank-you for your review, Geoff! I see that you were seated at one of our new tables - I'll make note of your feedback and share it with our GM re: the appropriate size of group. We appreciate your comments on the music level as well. It's something we'll keep an eye - or ear - on!

    I brought my mother here for Mother’s Day and we were served by the fabulous Sam. Sam was attentive, kind, funny and very knowledgeable. They made the experience amazingggg!! The food was fabulous and the ambiance was beautiful. It created a very memorable day for both my mother and I. Thank you for this special day!

    We came in for Mother’s Day brunch, and it was spectacular. My favourite was the burrata and heirloom tomato salad. The service was exceptional, as it always is. It was the perfect way to celebrate.

    Awesome! Thanks so much for choosing to spend the occasion with us and for taking the time to share your kind review. Really happy to hear you enjoyed the day, and hope we have an opportunity to welcome you back sometime soon. Cheers!
