    I just recently dined at Bern's Steak House with my girlfriend and I have to say that it was one of the best dining experiences of my life. It was my birthday dinner. When we arrived we had a drink at the bar and enjoyed the unique dark atmosphere of the restaurant. It was busy and yet we were seated within a reasonable time frame, Our server was witty and was knowledgeable about the menu...He suggested an absolutely incredible bottle of pinot noir...then suggested an even better Cabernet with entrees.The food is what made this dinner amazing. Every course from the Shrimp cocktail with a trio of sauces (the ginger sauce being the most amazing) to the French Onion soup Au Gratin with melted cheese and a garlic onion broth that was so delicious. I had the 14 oz New York Strip and it was cooked to perfection...very tender...very flavorful...nice sear on the outside of the steak. I paired it with a Pinot Noir reduction sauce that had a little sweetness and really complimented the taste of the strip well. My girlfriends filet was tender yet quite flavorful despite being so lean. All of Bern's steaks are dry aged which gives the meat a unique rich meaty flavor. Our sides which were served ala carte were the white truffle macaroni and cheese and the black truffle creamed corn. Both were very flavorful and delicious. I wish I had a review of the desert room upstairs which I hear has an impressive menu of sweet treats but I was so full from the feast I had just devoured! The whole experience was amazing and I recommend it to anyone...

    Best restaurant ever I have been coming to this restaurant for over 10 years and in my opinion is the best restaurant ever. Everything is fresh and home grown - all the way down to the spices. The steak melts in your mouth! Who needs a steak knife? I love the atmosphere. The service is impeccable and always right on time.

    The best steak dinner in Tampa. Not just the steak- all the food that comes with it as well. Drew is my favorite server of all.

    I am absolutely shocked that anyone could dream of rating this restaurant less than 5 stars. The service is absolutely unbelievable. The wait staff is so well trained, it's mind boggling. The atmosphere is that of royalty. I would argue that this is the best restaurant in the world-- and I guarantee I am not overrating my experiences. As far as pricing, you can share a nice steak with your lovely and enjoy a delicious bottle of wine for under $150--pretty good for a place most people would visit rarely or on special occasions.
