This is a first-come, first-served dessert restaurant above Bern's Steak House. You are seated in a converted wine barrel with a private phone to the piano player for music requests (or you can press other buttons for various radio options). Extensive dessert and dessert wine menu, but you can also order off of the regular wine and cocktail menus. Instead... More

This is a great dessert experience and I don't do dessert. But the drinks are great and my kids love it. Very elegant, very unique, and always delicious.

Macadamia nut ice cream is indescribable. With hints of coffee and caramel, its creamy texture sprinkled with chopped macadamia nuts, will linger in your memory until your return. Also do have a vintage port to round out the evening.

YUM - delicious desserts, cute private rooms, the music is fun because a pianist is playing and you can request songs (although we seem to ask for things he cannot play!) Save room for an after dinner drink!

Went here after dinner at Bern's Steakhouse. The dessert room is definitely part of the experience. It is amazing. Have been there several times and would recommend anything on the menu.

This is such a great place to finish your meal!! We enjoyed the Macadamia Nut Ice Cream; a recipe that took 9 months to perfect and only a limited number of people know this recipe. Their coffee is roasted "in house" in roasters from the 1800's. You can also finish off your meal with cheese from their cellar. We were... More

My wife and I doubled back here because we just couldn't eat at Bern's AND go the the Dessert Room in the same night. We are very glad that we did. There is an astounding assortment of after dinner drinks. It really does boggle the mind. However, being able to request virtually any song from a live piano player and... More
