One should wander into Bern’s Steakhouse with a singular focus – in search of an experience. Whatever that experience is – it will differ from person to person – but it must involve enjoying an antiquity. An old bottle of wine, to be purchased and shared with strangers. New friends immediately found.
Only open for dinner. No reservations? Come a few minutes before 430pm for their soft opening and hopefully catch a seat at the bar or a few tables near the bar. On the culinary side – known for their wide variety of steaks including their prime beef which they dry-age. Their well-known dessert room, named after the British Wine Merchant Harry Waugh features private booths built from former wine casks – a sit down here is included with every dinner reservation – although separate reservations can be made just for this room. Valet parking available or if space available, limited parking is located on nearby streets.
Words such as iconic and legendary are often used to describe this historical and storied establishment. With a wine collection that now numbers more then 500,000 bottles Bern’s Steakhouse is the owner of the largest restaurant wine collection in the entire country. The warehouse that stores these wines is located across from the entrance to the restaurant across West Marjory Ave (easily identifiable from the colorful mural on the west side of the building). Some of their older wine selections are extremely rare and unique to find on a wine list anywhere in the world. Deep dive into their offerings both domestically and internationally – there are numerous notables from this list including a well-priced selection of European produced Rieslings.
Just down the street is their wine shop, Bern’s Fine Wines & Spirits. Wine enthusiasts should take time either before or after dinner to visit the shop and chat with their knowledgeable sales people. For more information and to schedule a reservation, visit: www.bernssteakhouse.com
