    When you go to Berns, make sure to do it all (dinner, dessert room, kitchen and wine cellar tour). It's truly amazing and the food was great

    Great steak, apparently 80 people work in the kitchen! And 600,000 bottles of wine, nothing out of a box from Gallo though...

    This is the best steak house I ever been to. I love steak and the wine collection over there, in additional, you can not miss out the dessert room on the second floor, a lot of dessert to choose from

    Baronial chophouses are a cornerstone of America’s restaurant culture, but Bern’s, which opened in 1956, exists in its own west Florida dimension of eccentricity and excellence. Read more

    Get the $10 steak sandwich at bar, it's not on menu but will blow your mind. Truffle mushrooms amazing. Onion rings amazing. Carpaccio amazing. Unreal.

    The best restaurant on earth. Wow. Largest wine selection in world- 100k onsite, 500k off. Dating back to 1830s. Ask for full tour. Aged Steak amazing. Some say best steakhouse in world. I'd agree.

    Get some caviar if you have money to spend. Delmonico is my go-to for streak.

    I loved the experience. The dessert room is unlike anything you have ever experienced and the brownie with ice cream was unreal. Steaks didn't kill me, was expecting more flavour.

    Very good food. Stake is tender and not bloody at all. Sounds like an expensive place, but amount of complimentary food that is included with the order of stake is more than enough to be full.

    Great service, and just okay food. The smallest French Onion soup I've ever seen. If the restaurant was any darker, you'd need a flashlight to see your food. All-in all, a good experience.

    While the steak here is obviously delicious, you MUST order a side of the truffle wild mushrooms. That side dish is the real hero, because it makes everything else taste so much better.

    Wow, just wow! Don't pass this place up. The beef carpaccio is to do die for and the dessert room is a must. Feels like a blast from the past!

    No Jeans, wear a suite men. Get a tour of the Kitchen and celler of over 4000 wines! Amazing! Try the steak but anything on the menu will be wonderful. Staff is so helpful and great.

    Incredible place, really one of a kind. Must visit! Remember to ask your waiter for a kitchen and wine cellar tour! And food is just amazing.

    The lobster bisque is amazing, though very rich. I'd suggest having it as part of their soup sample plate. Make sure to ask your waiter about the kitchen tour too.

    Make sure to ask for a tour of the place after dinner & go to the desert room. Get the Macadamia Nut Sundae

    Always an experience...phenomenal food and wine. Just a shame that nobody dresses for dinner anymore but that's no reflection on the restaurant which is class all the way!

    Used to be great now there's steaks are just overpriced and not even as good as the meat you would get at a hibachi restaurant. The fruit and veggies aren't even organic either like they tell you.

    One of the worst steaks I've ever eaten. The restaurant smelled like mildew. I could get a better meal at Outback or Longhorn for much less money. The wine list was the only positive of this place.

    My favorite restaurant in the United States. Always excellent service, and an unbelievably fabulous atmosphere. Tour the largest private wine cellar in the country

    The Burn's porterhouse was the most juiciest steak I've ever hand. Hands down. Largest wine collection in the US & their own dessert room! Need I say more?

    Delicious even for the Veggie in the group of carnivores. Vegan would be tough to get but they do Vegetarian quite well.

    The unassuming exterior says a lot about this steakhouse. It is in dire need of a revamp. Steaks are great, but the rest of the menu needs some modernization. I guess that's why there's Sideberns.

    I've been to this restaurant many times over the past 20 years and I am amazed at the level of excellence that they have maintained. If you are in Tampa go and follow your waiters recommendation.

    Macadamia nut ice-cream is out of this world, and a vegetarian can even enjoy this steak house. Be sure to take the tour.

    Steak-tip sandwich at the bar is Tampa's best kept secret... $10 with all the sides with true Bern's quality!

    Great steak. Amazing experience. Bern's is a Tampa steakhouse staple. Many presidents have dined in there posh, organic restaurant. All of the vegetables come from their own garden!

    I hope you mean Bern's Steakhouse on S. Howard. Bern's is the number one steakhouse in the country. The food, wine selection and the tour is top notch.

    Over 100k bottles of wine. Do the tour after dinner and save room for dessert. Most interesting dining experience in a while. My friend called it the "sleep no more" of food (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Take a walk around and check out all the little dining rooms and of course the dessert room upstairs. I was expecting Don Draper to be sitting at the bar, very retro in a great way.

    Bern's is a Gulf Coast legend. Half million bottles of wine, 19 varieties of caviar, steaks that are cut to your requested thickness, a cheese cave, a separate dessert room. Try the Chateaubriand.

    Bern’s is a legend. Half million bottles of fine wine in their cellar is enough to vault it into fame, 19 varieties of caviar, steaks cut to your requested thickness, a cheese cave, a dessert room

    The interior resembles a bordello, but it's the huge array of aged beef — priced by cut, weight and thickness — that draws moans of ecstasy. The dessert room is a must.

    Quick, where is the restaurant with the biggest wine list in the world? That's right, Tampa, Fla.Founded in 1956 by the late Bern Laxer, Bern's Steak House is still a family-run restaurant. Read more

    Great steaks. When you arrive don't forget to ask your waiter for a reservation to the dessert room and kitchen tour. It is a must!!

    Not merely fine dining; it's an event! Caesar salad, prepped table side, is the best I've ever had! Delmonico, 8 oz, med, trimmed, is superb. Desserts like the sundae & apple pie are all that!

    The evolution of a world-class restaurant with seven dining rooms and 350 seats via a small sandwich shop located inside a strip shopping center is a remarkable!

    Take the tour...and although they're known for dessert, understand that unless you're dedicated, theres no way you'll make it that far without a mid-meal purge

    When you are done with your meal (or during) ask your server about their wine and kitchen tour. They give them all night and it's well worth it!
