Bernie's Restaurant & Bar - Manayunk
Great food and service as always!
I loved my server🥺
Very good food! I ordered the breakfast bloody and it did not disappoint
Food was good but took forever to come out. The cauliflower (wings) only came with 5 small pieces which were barely a mouthful and they cost $10. Then my entree the bbq Thai chicken came on half a plate and was not what the menu described . Half of my plate was empty and that was around $20. I left there hungry and spent $120. Would not recommend until there portion sizes increase.
The amount of time for someone to even acknowledge us after we were seated was entirely too long. Menu for brunch very limited and small portions.
Good overall experience! Very attentive waitress.
Our waitress was really nice, but the service was extremely slow. Cocktails were OK. Atmosphere is beautiful. Food was absolutely terrible and my husband and I are NOT picky. It's regularly priced for a Philadelphia restaurant but now when your food sucks. I would not go back unless there is like a new chef and some better servers.
Food was okay, one in our party did not get their food until the rest of us were almost done. That was a bit of a bummer, and we thought we probably wouldn’t have to pay for it since it didn’t really come with the rest of the meal and things were cold.
The restaurant staff was pleasant but rushed. My biggest issue was that the food lacks flavor! I had the fried chicken sandwich it lacked seasoning and flavor. We also were sat near the kitchen were all I could smell was fried food. I did enjoy my drink, “the wake up call”. Don’t think I will be returning.
Great ambiance & food but drinks can use some improvement
Delicious food and friendly service! The back patio has a fireplace and was a perfect place to start venturing back out safely.
The Drink my husband had was horrible so they comp’d it, which was good. But I ordered a $13 goat cheese appetizer, and it was not worth the money. Fried piece of goat cheese with no flavor, and a small green salad. Don’t think I’ll he coming back unfortunately. I liked the Bernie’s in University better.
The place is cute and the wines are fairly priced, but the food was not that great. Sounded great on the menu but not prepared well. Everyone at the table got something different and not one person truly liked it.
Food was excellent. We were out on the back patio which had great ambience between the fire and the lights. Fairly quiet back there too which was nice.
So yummy! Good variety in the menu. Burger was delicious!
Last 2 visits very short staffed
Our server was not attentive. We ordered an app with the intention of ordering dinner but the kitchen closed, which we were not informed. I had to ask for our check twice. It was also very bright.
Place was great our service was horrible
Waitress only came by twice, to take our order and to give us the check. The appetizer plus entree came out at the same time which was unacceptable 😑
We really enjoyed our time at Bernie's Manayunk! The food was great, cocktails were delicious and our server was friendly and accommodating. Will definitely return!
This place is adorable are has so much potential. With that being said, we had to ask for our water multiple times, had to ask for silverware and straws which made us feel forgotten about. My friend and I ordered the same meal but hers came out a solid 15 min before mine which was disappointing. We all got medium or medium well burgers and they were tasty yet they were definitely over cooked and beyond what we asked for.
Overall the menu is great, the drink choices were fun and diverse but for the prices, I’d expect the service to be much much better than what it was, especially for a week night when it wasn’t busy.
Food wasn’t very good. Had to wait a very long time time for everything, and when the entrees came out, we were given 3 of the 4 entrees, and had to wait 20 minutes until the last entree came out. By that time, everybody else had finished eating, and we were given no explanation for the wait. The late entree was a Buffalo chicken wrap, arguably the fastest to make of all the entrees we ordered.....
Good food. Service was a little slow. Maybe understaffed. But they did well regardless
Great menu selection and cocktails. Will definitely be bringing friends back!
Unfortunately had poor service and wasn’t that impressed with the food.
One of our favorite spots. Been very good throughout covid and easy to get a table. Food is great and service is always stellar!
Went for Easter brunch, great place very beautiful and great food.
Very disappointed. Have been to the other Bernie’s restaurants and had good experiences, unfortunately this experience was not good. The only redeeming part was our waitress. Our waitress was great.
Great place. I’ve been a few times. Each time I’ve ordered something new and never disappointed.
Order took 1 hour and was completely wrong. I got a burger cooked medium but by the time both meals were ready, I could tell it was just roasting under a heat lamp until well done. Omelette was completely wrong and had to be remade and second time was incorrect also. Waitress offered to remove the omelette but never actually did. I just wanted meal to be over. Never coming back
Great service. The food was great and seating was socially distant
My brunch here was excellent. I bought a friend of mine from D.C. to show the city and the hospitality shown here was excellent.
Service was really bad. We made a reservation specifically for outdoors but the host tried to get us to come inside. We were seated and ignored for almost a full half hour. Took nearly an hour to get food, and even then, I had to go to the host and remind them that we hadn’t had any service. Had to go to the bar to ask for water because it never came. Staff is nice, but plainly inexperienced. Food is great and I’ve had good experiences before. Might’ve been an off night for staff.
Went here for brunch and the food/service was okay. The place wasn’t super busy but the food took a while to come out. Food was decent but nothing special—same goes for the drinks. It wasn’t super expensive so not bad for the price.
Our waiter was awesome however it seemed like he was running the bar and multiple tables with little help. We called about 30 minutes prior to see if we can change from 2 to 4 and were denied however on arrival, we were sat outside at a 4 top. The food was pricey for what was offered. It is a cute spot but I'm unsure we will return
It was great! Great service, great drinks, great food. Will definitely be back!
We had a 10:45 reservation and we were seated immediately, however there were a lot of items that were no longer available on the menu including all breakfast meats... so that’s as a bit disappointing. Not sure how they ran out of all breakfast meat by 10:45am during peak brunch hour’
There were only two tables in the restaurant but my eggs came burned. The omelette at any other breakfast restaurant will beat the omelette here. They also didn’t have bacon or sausage for brunch. They were out of other things as well.
Amazing experience will be back
Came here with my boyfriend. He love, love, loved the French Onion Soup. He also enjoyed the beer selection. He had an overall decent experience. I on the other hand struggle with going out to dinner. Unfortunately, Bernie's did not have many options that were GF. None of the entrees, sandwiches, or pizzas were GF and there was no suggested modification. I was left with the salad menu, which is disappointing. Sensitivities and allergies are on the rise in the US and I find it interesting that places (like Bernie's) don't have allergy sensitivities listed on the menu, especially for being a new business. I won't be returning but I think my boyfriend would.
This was our first visit and to be honest it wasn’t a great experience. We sat for about 15 before we were even approached. We waited another 10-15 minutes for our drinks. Our apps camp out quickly and we’re very good. We had to flag our server down to order our meal and bring us more water. 3/4 meals were tasty - the fish and chips were over fried to the point of being hard and so so dry. Maybe it was just an off night. We are local so we may try again but overall we were a bit disappointed. The location is great, the vibe is awesome, we’re pretty understanding and hoping it was just an off visit.
