Aside from great steaks and the largest wine selection in the world. Bern's is also dinning experience unlike any other steakhouse. The dessert room is a separate restaurant upstairs and is a great indulgent after dinner. And the best thing is their prices are extremely reasonable compared to other high-end steakhouse because you get salad, soup, potatoes, and veggies with your steak. Can't recommend highly enough.

“Excellent value !! ” Fantastic steaks, superb appetizers and great wine list. This place is seriously dated but it's all about the food, so plan ahead. If you drink wine and know wine, you'll enjoy the 100+ page wine list. We found some excellent bottles reasonably priced. Large steaks 16 oz. plus are served on hot sizzle plates, so order your steak medium rare...

Bern's is definitely a cool experience, great ambiance, and the service is good. I have to say, this past time I went, I was very disappointed with the attitude we received from several staff members. The hostess was extremely rude, barely looked up to greet us, and at times, it seemed like we were bothering the waiter. When you're paying top dollar for a meal, you should be treated respectfully. We were seated (table for 2) at a table for 2, and then we were asked to move after we got situated because someone else came in and wanted that table. The dessert room was wonderful as always and the wait staff upstairs are very nice! I personally think the steaks at Capital Grille are better.

Great experience for our anniversary! We were catered to from the moment we walked in. Make your reservation ahead of time and let them know if it is a special occasion and you won't be disappointed. The food was phenomenal from the appetizers down to the desserts.

Bern's has been a Tampa tradition for many years. A little disappointing their side dishes aren't more appealing. Accompaniments to the entree are fried onion rings and squash medley. Really? Expected better quality and more creativity from a top-rated restaurant. The short ribs appetizer was amazing! The Delmonico steak was ok and not memorable even though it was grilled perfectly. Dessert room is great! The house-made macadamia nut ice cream with hot fudge sauce was fantastic. The Cappuccino Bern's was wonderful and a nice night cap to the evening. Didn't like the '12% service charge' added to the bill. Even though my waitress was attentive to our table with water refills it seems as though, from years past, service was better. No black napkins and you ran out?? Really? Our dinner reservation was at 7:30 and you had 100 no-shows because of the bowl game in town. 'Fake excuse.' People come to Bern's as a destination and to celebrate special occasions it would have been nice to have made it feel like we were somewhere special.

Couple things in life that I feel that you must do. Skydive, do volunteer work for charity, hike up a mountain, white water raft thing, and now come to Burns steakhouse. If God for bid I were ever offered my last meal I hope to God this place is open still. Perfectly cooked perfectly aged perfectly served from start to finish in-credible!

Being a Tampa native who is a huge foodie, I have been going to Bern's since I was a kid. I have been for many special occasions and I always love introducing people to the experience you get here. It really is like no other! I took my lovely lady this past Friday night and had hands down the greatest experience I have ever had here! Drew was our waiter who was amazing in every way he could be that evening. We never had to ask for anything and everything came out in such a steady and timed flow, we never even had the need to ask for anything. Drew even had a couple large parties he was attending to and I still never once felt abandoned nor neglected as you may expect in most other restaurants. He was very personable and made my lady laugh and truly wowed her with with a real Bern's experience beyond my very high expectations for this place! I have many memories and stories of Bern's growing up, but Drew definitely made this night stand out among the rest. We will always ask for Drew as our waiter from now on!😁

20oz chateaubriand shared between 2 people is a lot of food. Comes with salad, onion soup, baked potato, onion frites, and veggies. Awesome value. Atmosphere is old school steakhouse. Service is awesome. Biggest private wine collection in the world (500,000 bottles). Wine bottles range from $14 to $30,000. Kitchen tour and wine cellar are incredible. Dessert room is actually a full scale restaurant within a restaurant. Incredible desserts. This place is an experience. Not the best steak I've ever had in my life, but definitely a solid steak that's in my top 5 or so.
