    The food was excellent. Service awesome! However, restaurant is located on first floor of residential building and most tables are outside the building. We had such a disappointment because a guy who called himself member of building association was extremely rude with staff in the restaurant. Apparently, our dog ( 15 pounds) was there and they don’t allow dogs despite no having any sign. He screamed to the staff who apparently allow the dog in the restaurant. I hope they can move out from that cave soon !

    Very nice and surprising delicious.. it has a wonderful location and could be considered like a roof top. I think our 4 different foods were well prepared with their many nice choices from the menu. Great drink options too. It’s very special to get that outdoorsy calm dinning experience in Miami Beach.

    The brunch menu and ingredients are Latin infused, so it’s a good idea to review the menu and ingredients to determine if it’s something you’d enjoy. Very beautiful scenery! Service overall good!

    The food was delicious. Decent portion sizes for the cost. The outdoor seating area is lovely, right on the canal. Smelled a little fishy, but they had fans blowing to keep the air fresh and moving. I asked them in the reservation to sing happy birthday to my boyfriend. They not only sang, but they also put a candle in a piece of pie for him and brought an extra slice for me. It was great!

    The Steak and frites special is great and quality is always good. A must try is the croquettes and meze platter. Love the Vegan options. Only wish there were more fish options available but it is always good. Jackie our server is the best! Wonderful neighborhood gem!.

    We dined with out of town friends on a Saturday. The ambience and service were great. One of our friends thought the skirt steak was tough. But the whole fried snapper and seafood appetizers were amazing. Guava cheesecake is always a winner. Nice place for couples. Romantic

    Amazing service by Geridel, attentive and great attitude. The Manchego cheese croquettes were amazing. The breakfast burrito was to die for. The guava cheesecake was sinful. What can I say everything is delicious at Bernie's Café.

    Beautiful setting. Right in the Intercoastal. On a nice day, sit outside. Indoors small but nice. At the end of the day, too much sun. Food was great. Servers nice, but service needs work.
