I have been to Bern's many times, dating back to the 1970's.
Not much has changed except it has turned Into a tourist trap. The decor is as old as the restaurant. Some may like that. I knew Bern Laxer personally and he was a creative guy that loved wine and sharing it with his patrons at a great value. Boy, has that changed. You can still find some good value wines on the list, but Buyer Beware. We had a party of 6. We ordered 2 nice older vintage wines at fair prices. Someone in our party requested Caymus (not Special Selection). I ordered it without looking at the list. We received a current 2020 vintage. When the bill came I had sticker shock with the $250 price. I have never seen it on a restaurant wine list over $200. I thought surely this was a mistake, especially at a restaurant that had a reputation for value wine pricing. The manager came over and schooled me on restaurant wine markups in a condescending way. He point out that it is the price on the list. Granted, my bad for not checking the list. Bern's, Your Bad for price gouging. I hate writing off this restaurant, but I do not like getting ripped off. It is not the money. It is the principle. I won't go back.
Bern's does disappoint! I will say that it was a Sunday
Bern's does disappoint! I will say that it was a Sunday evening (5:45pm reservation) and maybe the staff was tired but from a first experience - I wouldn't recommend it and don't know if I would go back. No one at this establishment seems happy or seems to like working there - from the parking lot staff, to hosts to watiers. No one had smiles or happy they worked there. Just keep the food and people moving -- like it was assemble line -- but make sure you have a coat and tie on which I didn't but dressed nicely as requested. It was one of the worst steaks I had in years and I dine at top steaks houses around country (and have been to most all of the Top 10 Steakhouses in Country) - regulary dine at top steak chains of Fleming, Ruth Chris, Del Frisco, Capital Grill, Ringside etc - usually one of them once a month. I had a Strip and my wife had a Filet. Both were not tender and favor was isn't anything special. I am usual buyer from Omaha and Kansas City steak companies via shipping and the are 100% better --They make a big deal out of dessert room upstairs -- nothing special there in my opinion for the price and time to wait for another table -- I was not upset at pricing and seemed good value but the food wasn't. Mac and Cheese was horrible (highly recommend from the waiter) -- I had better mac and cheese from Wawa.It was highly recommended by wife's uncle who was in sales and came to Tampa at least twice a year for years. He is a true Texan (born and lived his whole life) so said it was the best steaks he ever had but hadn't been there in 20 plus years. Sad if this place is going way of other places of its times... I will say I was impressed with number packed (as I waited 25 mins to get my Caddy back after paying $8 which seemed strange to me when most places I go it is comped) and keep coming on a Sunday night -- maybe my experience as off night -- or the Tampa market just doesn't have much competition... or just been there so you go...
If you keep looking you will always find better.
Peter Lugers move over!! Sorry Peter! I have loved you a long time, but you don't even come close to Berns Steakhouse in Tampa Bay Fl. I happened to Stumble in on a fluke never hearing of it before while in Tampa to pick up a car I had found on line ! We Started with the 'house' Bourbon Old Fashion. (The simple syrup they use is a house secret, I couldn't bribe anyone to reveal, AND I TRIED) ) By the time I ordered the second I knew I found the end of the rainbow! We salivated with the most amazing Tartare, just a light appetizer while drinking, and waiting for our table. It was amazing, seasoned with capers and spices. It didn't come close to perfection. It past it by light years! , then we started to eat. Needless to say I had a Kobe steak I will admit it's pricey, but there is no place you will experience what this should taste like or your money can buy better than Berns!, I could go on for pages to tell you about the crème brûlée, which was amazing, and the appetizers that we had along the way as we finished the third old fashion concluding with a 40 year old tawny port. This was an epicurean delight if you have to save for a year and happen to be in Tampa Bay Florida or maybe just be able to afford it, It is the best I have ever eaten or experienced in at least four continents where I have had this, Including Japan! Please don't think me a snob. It was quite pricy, and sadly have to admit, not something I can afford to do as much as I would like. However I know somewhere down the roadI WILL DO THIS AGAIN, THERE !If I find myself within 100 miles of Tampa Bay Florida.
Food was good, however service was very sub par.
My husband and I went there on our honeymoon to celebrate getting married and we're very disappointed in the experience. We were originally planning to go to the dessert room after dinner, but were so turned off by the experience that we decided to just leave. It took an hour to even get soups, server was often nowhere to be found and the table that arrived 20 minutes after us, but was served by the same server was cleared and finished significantly before us. A huge let down overall.
Berns is the quintessential Tampa steak house.
I came here with family for a birthday and it was amazing. I ordered steak and it was one of the best I've ever had. The service is impeccable and the ambiance is elevated and reserved. The food is great but always leave room for dessert because the dessert room is an experience. I can't wait to go back!
I wasn't overrall impressed with the Steak, I thought it
I wasn't overrall impressed with the Steak, I thought it was good, but not great, figured it would make it to the top 10 steak houses I have been to, otherwise service and ambiance great, and desert room is pretty awesome
This place is the real deal.
Only downside is that it comes with a major price tag; but you would know that going in to dinner here most likely. Can be difficult to get a reservation so ensure you do so early.
I've visited a few times and I've never been disappointed
I've visited a few times and I've never been disappointed in the food's flavor and quality. The service has always been great. The best parts for me are the steaks and the dessert room upstairs.
Simple, best steak house I've ever been to.
5/5 by S B.
I highly recommend if you're planning a trip to Tampa Bern's is a must.
The ultimate steakhouse experience.
Decor and ambiance of the place is beautiful, service is top tier, and food is incredible. Meat is so tender cooked just perfectly. Sides were good but I thought a couple were just ok - mac n cheese was average and French onion soup was a bit salty. But overall, this place is amazing and definitely a great place to book for a special occasion.
You will have a good time
We have been here several times and I’ve always been thoroughly impressed. I know a good steak, this is a great Steak! We shared the porter House Which included A French onion soup and a wonderful salad with homemade blue cheese As well as a baked potato and onion straws. The desert upstairs was amazing we had the crème brûlée and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. The wine list is incredible as everyone knows. A server Josh was spot on his recommendations
5/5 by BPR18
I am sure I am at least the one millionth person to give Berns a 5 star review. The food was excellent, maybe even a bit too much food. Service was outstanding and the atmosphere was unique. They have come up with something truly different and extraordinary. It’s time for Michelin to come to Tampa and give this restaurant its well deserved 3 stars.
Bern's Steakhouse in Tampa never disappoints!
No better place to entertain friends. Great steaks - and the dessert room is a must!
Expensive prices for just an okay steak
We made a reservation in December for a February seating. We arrived early but were forced to pay for valet parking as there are hardly any parking spaces at this establishment...certainly nothing close to the number of people that can be served at any given time. Our seating was over a half hour late (so much for reservations two months in advance). The service was excellent, but the steak was overpriced and fatty. I have had better steaks in the likes of a Texas Roadhouse. Overall, the price paid for our meals crested $200. I would have expected something exemplary for that amount of money, but was disappointed to say the least. I don't think I will ever be going back...certainly not in this lifetime.
It is all about the experience
When telling people how much our bill was with tip they ask if the food is worth it. I tell them that no food is worth that price, but the entire Berns experience is what makes it worth it. Yes, the food was absolutely amazing. But, it was everything else. Let me start by saying you need to make reservations 2-3 months in advance unless you get lucky with a day of cancelation there are no walk-up tables available. The staff here was unbelievable. Everyone was so nice. I felt, if I asked my server to do a dance for me he would have. He was so polite and knowledgeable and attended to our every need. Whatever questions we had we never felt as if we were a bother and were not made to feel stupid. The place was exquisite, very clean, and beautifully decorated. You never feel rushed. I hate places where I have barely had time to open my menu and they are wanting me to order. Not here, take all the time you want or need. This is fine dining at its best. As I said the food was amazing. We had the carpaccio as an appetizer and it was so good. We couldn't decide on a salad dressing and our server brought out several for us to sample. The main course, Delmonico steak, and surf and turf were so good. I have never had fried lobster and I was pleasantly surprised by how good it was. After dinner, the server (Kevin) took us to the dessert room. On the way, he stopped by the kitchen windows and explained everything going on there. Even though the place was so busy we were made to feel like we were their only customers. The dessert room was something else. You sit in your own private wine cask. We had trouble deciding on which desserts we wanted as everything sounded amazing. And of course, it was. If we lived closer we would definitely be going back. I am very happy I have finally been able to visit this establishment and had an amazing experience.
Save Your money - Not Even Close to Worthy of its Hype
I feel like the 60 day out reservation calendar is to make people think this place is really worth dining at. We’ve heard such great things about the Bern’s “experience,” but our experience was sorry to say, PISS POOR! From the moment we checked in and were told we had to climb 2 flights of steep steps for a restroom, I was not thrilled since wearing heels. Then, we were led to one of their small dining rooms and were sat next to a table of about 15 frat guys. They were drunk, loud, and disruptive. Not what I am looking for when paying for a meal of this type. Luckily upon request, the hostess reseated us in another small dining room. Still quite loud and bright with no ambiance, but we thought “Ok. Things will get better from here on.” NOPE. We ordered the 100 day aged Delmonico and it was not only tasteless but inedible. There was so much gristle in it, I had to spit it out into my napkin and wait for our waiter to arrive to send it back. He ordered me another cut after asking if I was used to eating ribeyes and should he order me a leaner cut of beef. (WTH? So condescending!) I told him that fat had nothing to do with it. It was all gristle. Well, the second one came after everyone had finished eating and looked totally different. Better because it was tender, but still completely flavorless. I ate a couple bites and that was enough for me. My husband had a filet, his go to steak. He said his was sub par also with no seasoning or flavor at all. Worst he’s had in a restaurant. We were so excited to try Bern’s and thought we’d leave thinking it was our new 1st or 2nd fave prime steak house. Instead, it fell not only last place but in the “we will never go there again” list. Save your money and go somewhere else. Just about any other choice would be better.
Wonderful experience and delicious food!
One of the finest restaurant experiences we have ever had! From the service and the assistances of our server, thru the desert room, plus the wine and each step we made, guaranteed an excellent experience. We visited here on Valentine’s Day 2023. Reservations were made by our Daughter in Law, 3 months in advance. There was 6 of us and the service could not have been better. We ordered steaks and lamb chops along with a generous supply of side dishes. The meals were cooked to perfection to maximize the flavor of each meal. We then visited the dessert room upstairs and our dessert choices were varied but again, delicious. This restaurant is a must visit when you have the opportunity. Reservation’s are difficult to obtain but with some advanced planning can,be obtained on line. Loved this place and will definitely return as the opportunity arises.
first of all there reservation system is HORRENDOUS. I emailed with no luck, then waited on reservation portal exactly 60 days out and got in before the clock struck midnight. Guess what? Only ONE reservation for 10:45 pm... seems a bit rigged to me? Anyways the food was mediocre at best you can find a better steak and experience at Charleys down the road.
Bern’s Steakhouse is awesome
Always have a great experience. Little bit of a wait for the dessert room but all was good and everything was delicious as always
Getting too big for their britches...
We have been going to Bern's since the early 90's - it was always a special place for dinner and worth driving all the way from Brooksville, FL to Tampa. Fast forward to this year and it has become it's own worst enemy. You cannot make a reservation unless you are sitting at your computer the second the reservation system opens for the day you want - then you are still not necessarily going to get anything except 5PM or 9PM. I don't know how many regulars just re-reserve while they are there, or if someone is just quicker on the draw, but getting in has become a nightmare. The last time we did manage to get there was with guests whom we had promised a memorable meal. It was memorable all right. We didn't get seated until 40 minutes past our reservation time, and felt rushed throughout the entire meal. We went to the dessert room and sat and waited for the wait person. And sat, and sat. When we did get someone to take our order, she disappeared again for another half-hour. What is going on over there? Can you not get enough help? You used to have to train to be a Bern's waiter - the "rookies" wore a different colored jacket. It was a matter of pride to become a full fledged waiter there. We are not going back, my next birthday will be at Charley's.
BERNS STEAKOUSE WAS SUPERB!
WE HAD THE MOST MEMORABERNS STEAKHOUSE TAMPA WAS SUPERB! BLEXPERIENCE EVER!
Perfectly cooked steak and great wine list!
They have perfectly cooked steak and great wine list! They also have a whole room reserved for dessert! how could you say no :)
BERNS IS OVERHYPED AND UNDERWHELMING
We went to Berns with such high expectations but came away wanting more. The building is tired and needs renovations, but the main issue was that it was freezing inside, especially in the room where we were served which made it an unpleasant experience, The food was good but not spectacular but the service was second to none!. The finale, which is the dessert room was underwhelming, the five of us were led to a very small room with a long table and uncomfortable seating with bright lights and the desserts were just very average, and yet again, the room was really cold! Like I said we came with high expectations but left with a lesser opinion.
What to say about this restaurant, the service was good, some of the food was great, but for two people out of four, the main event namely the steaks were not good. My own steak was tough and tasteless and my companions was to. We both had different cuts, an aged strip steak and a fillet.
A bit pricey but so worth it
The best part is the dessert room. If your looking for a romantic experience, this is the place.
Wow, where do I begin?! This place used to be amazing! Not
Wow, where do I begin?! This place used to be amazing! Not only the food but the experience, the mannerisms of the waiters, and just the way things we're done. Last night my family and I took my girlfriend there for the first time, we RAVED about this place and we were so disappointed! Our waiter had a runny nose and kept sniffling in our ears. We even saw it drop from his nose while serving our food. The huffing and puffing from him was amazing like we were annoying him. The food isn't what it used to be. They got a new chef and he changed EVERYTHING! The menu is smaller, the food we raved about and part of the experience is gone. The dessert room too! The waitress we had was soooo unprofessional. We had problems with drinks downstairs in the dining room and issues with food in the dessert room. We even complained and you would think they would be like "I'm sorry about that" but no instead the manager said okay and walked away. My grandma wasn't a fan of her dessert and the waitress goes "oh she really didn't like it?" Laughs and still charges us. I'm truly disappointed and not satisfied at all. Two years ago I'd give this five stars but y'all really went to the bottom of my list and I hate saying that. I miss the old experience. I don't see us coming back for a while and that's a shame. For the price we pay the experience could've been better.
If you like first-class service, which is hard to find in today's world, this is the place to go. Naturally, the cost reflects the service.
50th Birthday Celebration
We were seated promptly on time at 745pm. However, that is where it started to go down hill. Our server, wearing a silver tie, was no where to be found for at least 15 minutes. He took our drink orders. Drinks came. Waiting.....He finally came back to take our dinner orders approx 830pm. Party of 4, we ordered two filet dinners, 1 chateaubriand and one halibut dinner. Food was delicious as always. What was missing....was the normal impeccable service you get from not 1 but usually 2 servers at Bern's. Our server was clearly spending all his time with another party of 10 he had going, at least that is what the host said, that I flagged down to get service. We were never offered a refill on our drinks. We were finished eating for at least 20 minutes before I had flagged her to get carry out and checkout....we still had to go upstairs for dessert and it was now 10pm. The worst part...he never apologized for making us wait so much throughout the night. Sorry Bern's but you need to do better. Service has slipped dramatically. Food and presentation is still great though! I will still be back.
Berns Steak house most definitely lives up to the hype !
Berns Steak house most definitely lives up to the hype ! This was not just a steak house it was an experience!! The service was just amazing and the food is delicious ! After dinner i highly recommend the desert room which is in another part of the restaurant ! Deserts were spectacular!! Our server for the dinner part of our experience was Tyler and i highly highly recommend requesting he serve you !!
We had a great time and the chateaubriand was crispy on the
We had a great time and the chateaubriand was crispy on the outside but extremly soft on the inside which was delicious as always. That said, I was really disappointed to see the vicyhyssoise soup and the banana bread pudding were both removed from the menu. The vichyssoise will be greatly missed and I'm sad it is no longer available.
Bern's steakhouse is probably the best restaurant I have
Bern's steakhouse is probably the best restaurant I have been to. With the proper reservation (which is a once in a lifetime chance, I was lucky) you can get up to a dessert room and have the best steak of your life! You start of with a bowl of French onion soup, then a salad, and finally steak. The steak comes with a baked potato and onion strings with the vegetable of the evening. It is not only the food that is amazing, the scenery is very classy, they have portraits of French and Russian nobles, with a route used to deliver food from a century ago! After your main courses is the dessert room (a pic is attached to the dessert I had). All in all this is the best steakhouse I have been to and maybe the best restaurant I have been to. Maybe it will be yours too!
For the price and the need to have to make reservations months in advance, I don't really get the hype. Have definitely had better steaks at a better price elsewhere. The dessert room was also ok. Another area where I just don't think it lives up to the hype. I guess I'm glad I went once but I don't need to go again.
Well. We have been coming to Bern's for over 18 years.
Well. We have been coming to Bern's for over 18 years. It used to be our favorite because of the extras. The oysters were the best because of the 4 different sauces including the jalepelño grenache, the horseradish cream & the shallot vinaigrette. The cheese cracker amuze bouche was always fantastic & the crispy mushrooms always made Bern's different & special (not to mention the wine list and service of course).None of that exists anymore, except for the wine list. The oysters & service was pedestrian & no amuze.The steak & potatoes were still great, but they were missing their teammates.Sadly, Bern's is no longer our favorite & out of our top 10 in Tampa.You have lost your way. Callus when you get your mojo back.
Absolutely perfect in every way so beautiful and unique the food is exquisite the service is untouchable it's a must to visit if you get the chance or the privilege 💞💞
This is what dining should be-this was not just dinner it was an experience
We visited Bern's at the recommendation of many and to celebrate anniversaries and birthdays in our group. Make a reservation and dress for the occasion! From the moment we valeted the car we knew this was going to be a memorable and special evening. We were greeted and taken to our table and made to feel welcome immediately. The cocktail menu was diverse and interesting, there were mocktails for the kids in our group. We ordered a bottle of wine from the gigantic and incredible wine list that was great and you can find great bottles in all price ranges. The entire meal was spectacular, the heirloom tomato salad is a MUST - it was delicious. The filets were also exceptional, but the best was the chateaubriand - it was incredible. The french onion soup is the best I have had in my half century of living and eating french onion soup. After dinner, our server had made a reservation for us in the dessert room, which should not be missed. Espressos, bananas foster, and gluten free and dairy free options are also available!
If your looking for an American classic, you cannot beat
If your looking for an American classic, you cannot beat Bern's! Excellent food, wine, and make sure to save room for dessert to get the overall full experience. The tours (wine cellar, kitchen) are still closed from COVID restrictions, so that's too bad... and the service seemed a bit "matter of fact" and rushed (no real dialogue/discussion regarding recommendations- just "what do you like" followed by "then have this"... no alternative this or that or even this. I expected more from the service honestly, which drops it a star).
Best celebratory restaurant ever!
An amazing experience!! The dinner, the dessert, the service (thank you, Grant for being the Best waiter) was beyond our expectations!!! The only regret was not asking what was in the green apple martini we had pre dinner. It was amazing!!!
Most definitely a must! It is quite an experience indeed.
From start to finish, it was a delight to be able to check this off the list. Also, you cannot skip the dessert room!
Everyone needs to experience Bern's.
The wine tour and desert bar are a key part of the experience. It's worth the wait.
This is the must visit restaurant of Tampa.
You get an incredible amount of food for the price, and it's exactly what you want from a classic steakhouse rated top in the country. Every steak comes with salad, French onion soup, baked potato, onion rings, and vegetables. The dessert room is an entirely separate experience that you can't miss. Insider tip: you can get a reservation for just the dessert room
Disappointing for the price
The experience at Bern's underwhelmed me. Since moving to the Tampa Bay area, we have repeatedly heard that this restaurant is the best in the region. We made reservations months in advance as required and awaited this wonderful experience. We were seated promptly and received a great explanation of the menu. As soon as we told the waiter that we couldn't drink alcohol, we noticed that we would not get the same service as those around us who were ordering expensive wines and cocktails. We ordered steaks that included onion soup, salad, baked potatoes, and onion rings. The onion soup and salad were good and served in a timely fashion. The waiter delivered the steaks, and it took more than ten minutes for the gorgonzola sauce to arrive and additional time to receive the baked potatoes. Coordinating the arrival of all meal components is a minimum service level that I have come to expect, and much less expensive restaurants have figured out how to do this. The steaks were of excellent quality, but the experience was marred by not having them cooked as requested and not receiving the accompanying sauce until the waiter had a lengthy discussion with patrons at another table. After the meal, we went to the dessert room and were less than impressed again. The piano player stopped playing as soon as we sat down, and the selections that the waitress said were outstanding were mediocre. I doubt that we will be returning since, in my opinion, there are much better steak places in the area.
There’s a reason this place is always booked and hard to get into. Ambiance abounds from the lighting and carpets to the art decor scattered around. A maze of larger and intimate dining rooms. Service provided by knowledgeable and attentive staff makes for an ultimate experience. Excellent choice options of appetizers, salads, soups and of course steaks (seafood and alternates available as well.) The appetizer bacon slab was very well done, but a tad bit sweet with the cherry glaze. French onion soup and salad also done to perfection (included with steak meal orders). The steaks were perfect, hot and perfectly charred on the outside. Accompanying green beans and onion straws also done right. We’ll see desserts in my next post as this is a separate category.
If you like steak this is a bucket list place to go
You always hear hype on certain restaurants and wonder if they are paying for it. I have been to many of the top steakhouses in the US including multiple visits to St. Elmo's in Indianapolis. Berns is equal to any of the top ones and surpasses most due to their ambiance. The steaks were perfect and not a la carte like everywhere else. Everything is included. The French onion soup is as good as you will ever have, the salad was fresh not sitting in a fridge. Also, a potato and fresh vegetable were included. To top it off they have a whole dessert floor with homemade desserts. The experience is beyond what I expected. A special thanks to Vanessa and Jesse for spectacular service.
Not quite right. We were immediately pointed to the steak page where everything is included ? So odd . Expected a La carte
There is nothing more to say other than excellent. This time we didn’t have reservations but were visiting Tampa and staying across the street. So we tried over and over to get a table through open table but could not get one. We got to the restaurant at 5:20 to stand outside but we were too late to get a seat at the bar. So we went the next night at 4:10 and waited in 91 degree heat. They opened the doors for us at 4:45 and we got our preferred seats at the bar and had a fabulous dinner. The. We went to the dessert room and had a scrumptious dessert. I love Berns.
Have eaten here multiple times and it's always been a great
Have eaten here multiple times and it's always been a great experience with great food!
This was a unique yet odd experience. The place itself was not what I envisioned. It's almost like eating in a dungeon. I pictured it more romantic. The server was really nice but the script was so dull. Overall he did a great job.
I expected the steak to be better. The sides were the star of the dish in my opinion. It was cooked properly and the flavors were alright. It was a little boring for my liking. The steak I would have given a three star by itself.
The French Onion soup was to die for. It is my new favorite and I'm extremely picky on it. The cheese was sensational. It was so rich but wasn't overbearing. So so good.
The salad was fresh and creative. All of the ingredients paired well together and the ranch was delicious. The red peppers were what brought it all together.
The baked potato was excellent. It was fresh and soft. The toppings were plentiful. The skin was actually edible without being dry or overly salty.
The green beans were prepared perfect. It was lightly salted and paired well with the steak. They brightened up the plate as well.
They called them onion rings but I call them to book straws. They were not needed and really didn't work well with anything. They were just kind of in the way.
The dessert room was exceptionally creepy haha. The layout was odd and it felt like a haunted prison almost. We ordered two and haven't tried them yet. Kenny the pianist was amazing! He is incredibly talented and I requested Queen. Freddie would have been proud! ❤️
I'm glad we got to experience the Tampa tradition here but it wasn't impressive enough to return. I just hoped and expected more after going thru so many great reviews. The price of admission was not for us.
What an amazing experience! My wife and I went to Burns
What an amazing experience! My wife and I went to Burns last night after a 3 month reservation wait and was it ever worth it. The place was what you would expect from an established steak house. Dark woods, classic art on the walls and a staff dressed the part. Our waiter (Paul) has been with Burns for over 18 years and explained the hierarchy as it related to the color of the ties the wait staff were wearing. The food was fantastic. I got a fillet medium topped with truffle butter that was tender and tasty. My wife got the American Red Snapper. She loved it! The wine "book" is over 100 pages so you should be able to find a bottle to your liking. Then we had a reserved "wine cask" upstairs in the desert room. The atmosphere up there was also perfect. Old photos, a push button music box to set the mood and deserts that I've seen no where else. We steeled on the macadamia ice cream sundae and a homemade waffle cone for a base. I was told that it took over three years and 700 recipe attempts to perfect the macadamia ice cream. It was definitely perfect. They encourage business casual but go for a bit more formal wear and you will feel very special and treated as such. We will definitely be back again.
Went for Valentine's Day, and it was overall an amazing
Went for Valentine's Day, and it was overall an amazing experience. Dinner service was paced well, food was tasty and fresh, service was perfect, and the ambiance was well-suited for the occasion. I highly recommend taking a look at their wine list prior to arrival. Our server had some great recommendations for us, as I quickly was overwhelmed by the 400 page list We ordered the octopus as an appetizer (it was amazing), and we ended up both getting the Luxe Tasting for our entree. It was too good to pass up! Also, don't skip out on the Dessert Room
