This was a New Year's day breakfast with family. The service was excellent. Comfortable, elegant atmosphere. Excellent food. The fruit plate and the fruit garnishes on other selections were absolutely top quality. Can't wait to go back for lunch or dinner.

Meal and service were extra special! Great wine list. The only negative was finding it because of road closings we road around in circles trying to get there. Had to call and have staff help us and still had to go down a one way street the wrong way to get there. Glad we did not give up because it... More

The Bernards Inn is truly one of the best places to "Fine Dine" The food,the staff, service and the atmosphere are all impeccable. 10 being the highest,the Bernards Inn gets a 12 in my book. We always look forward to dining there, their creativity is amazing.

We're not often in the area, but when we are, we go back to the Bernard's Inn. On our last visit, we had the tuna carpaccio and the venison, both of which were outstanding. Service, atmosphere all very polished yet friendly.

The Bernards Inn is a classic. It is beautiful, and the service is always top shelf. I love to go to the bar and enjoy their bar menu, which is reasonable. There is often wonderful music, and it is a nice Friday evening choice. I have been going there for twenty years, and I have never had a bad experience.

I read the reviews about negative service – we had no problems whatsoever. Indeed, service was on-point throughout. Yes, there is the fancy dress and 4 people carrying out your food in mass, but that’s what you get in these upscale places. Like them re-folding your napkin when you get up. Does it justify $35 plates – no – but... More
