Old-school Dining in SoHo
Consistently rated the best restaurant in Tampa, Bern’s is also one of the most unique restaurants to entertain clients.
Start with cocktails in bar, which has a wonderful old speakeasy-type feel. The restaurant has numerous rooms of all sizes, so talk to the person who makes the reservation to get the right room for your group.
The menu is also unique in that you order steaks by the cut, weight, and thickness. Our favorite is the 16 oz. New York Strip, but many people love their Delmonico cuts. All entrees come with French Onion Soup, salad, onion rings, and a potato. The waiters are great at helping you navigate the large menu. If you save room for dessert, have them set a table in the dessert room for you. It’s a unique and memorable way to end the meal.
Bern’s also has one of the largest selections of wines in the world. They say there are over 100,000 bottles in their collection—make sure your waiter gives you a tour of the cellar. For large groups, we recommending telling the sommelier the type of wine you’d like and the price point you’re looking for. Last time the sommelier helped our founder order a wonderful bottle that he would never had found otherwise.
