If you want a fantastic meal with great service, come here. The wine selection is out of this world-the give you a book from which to choose from. I recommend the crab cakes.

Food excellent. Atmosphere needs to be updated. Service superb!! I would like to try upstairs Sarah's wine bar. Although the food and service was fantastic, I felt like I should have been there with 80 and 90 year olds. Way to formal stuffy from my...More

I wish we had tried Bernard's a long time ago - it's amazing. We loved that there are various rooms that are smaller, making it feel more quaint. The service was spot on and the food was delicious. We enjoyed everything we ordered. We will...More
