Bernie’s is consistently great. Food, service and ambience deliver a very fun night out.
Excellent food and service!!!
We made a reservation easily on a Saturday night so I was worried, it wouldn't be good. The neighborhood is a little north of the action in River North but I thought that was actually a good thing.
The food was very tasty and the noise level made it possible to have a conversation. Our waiter was great. Serving sizes are a little small. Fun drink menu and lots of other choices for beer and wine. We had to park about a block away but it wasn't too bad and it was a nice night, so all good. I'd definitely go back!
Good food. Excellent Atmosphere. Great Value
Met friends for brunch. Great that we were able to get a reservation so quickly. Place was not overly crowded for Sunday brunch- which was great. We were able to enjoy conversation and our meals without feeling rushed. We all ordered make your own skillet. These were awesome! Really enjoyed it
Good food but slow service and it was very loud.
Awesome food, great atmosphere!
Great atmosphere and food options. We came for brunch and there were a lot of tasty options!
Great food & service. Super under rated dinner spot. We will be back.
Fantastic food, service and nice people. They are diet restriction friendly. The cocktails are creative and simply delish. The burger and fries are among the best on the city. Easy to park. All around great place.
Nice rooftop. cool bar and bartender. Hostess was so accomodating and helpful. Food had some real outstanding moments.
The food here is so good, but my wife and I come here fully knowing that half our order will actually make it to the table right and that we will most likely get annoyed with our server because they will go missing for 20-30 min. Although we appreciate the food here, some of their items, like build your own skillet, are a huge rip off. I spent $20 on a breakfast skillet with toast.
If I didn’t enjoy the food here so much there is no way I would ever come back.
Our server was sweet and attentive. The rooftop is fantastic and the food is wonderful. Thank you!!
My friend and colleague suggested the location and after I made the reservation he swiped the check. The meal was simple but good : salads and a shared dessert. That blueberry tart is delicious.
Great food and great service! No wait to get seated and food came out very quickly!
Modern restaurant, good food but the menu is not extensive, nice outside area.
As the evening progressed, service became slower. Order delivered incomplete!
The food at Bernie's is always good. We were able to take advantage of a beautiful afternoon in Chicago and sit on the rooftop!
First of all Zach is amazing! The food was good. Small but filling portions! I would definitely come back!! And the rooftop is gorgeous!!
Looove this place! The food was delicious icious, the staff was wonderful, and the rooftop was such a great place to have dinner. Will definitely be going back!
Love this place! The food is amazing and they have great rooftop!
Reggie and I sat at the bar and had lunch and it was awesome !
Good food, nice rooftop and great frose! Servers very nice. Bathrooms could use a deep clean.
Great food with a great atmosphere! The cocktails were wonderful!
We returned for brunch because we loved the food and it was a beautiful day to dine alfresco. Our wait staff were very attentive and the manager personally served us our bottle of Champagne. We’re adding it to our favorite places to dine in Chicago.
the service is bad enough to not come back. unless you're standing at the bar, don't bother
Went to Bernie’s to celebrate my last day of work at my current company. We had quite a few more people than expected and though reluctant, their staff worked to accommodate us. Food and drinks were delicious as always and happy hours deals are far better than anything in the area.
The food is very good, especially the hummus. The bartender wasn’t very cooperative with providing our waitress with our drink order. The manager was notified and was very responsive. It was great dining alfresco on the rooftop. Despite the drink order issue, we’d go back again.
Sunday pre-show matinee brunch with mom. All was delish and fresh and not supersized which was wonderful as I hate food going to waste when plates unnecessarily feed two people.
Our waitress was very sweet even though we were a little ‘hangry’ when we first arrived. The aesthetic is very visually appealing but is a bit loud when they’re busy. The bloody Mary’s were admittedly an experiment according to the owner and definitely still need a lot of work.
Even without the issue of how long our food took for 2 people — longer than the table of 4 nearby that sat and ordered after us — when the food arrived our poached eggs were all visibly undercooked and watery. Poaching an egg doesn’t take long but the chef put 6 of them visibly undercooked on the two plates. We scraped them off with a spoon but we didn’t come for sautéed vegetable and hash brown skillets. That said, the ricotta donuts were incredible. All around a very disappointing 100$ brunch especially compared to past experiences with lunch and drinks.
The food was pretty good but the service was awful which ruined the experience overall. It was not busy when we went and our waitress did not take our drink order until 15-20 min after we sat down. Stay away from the Today We Bubble, it tastes like really sweet grape juice. Most of our table could not even finish it. I had to ask our Waitress multiple times when are drinks were arriving when I could see them sitting on the bar stand for 10+ minutes and they ended up not arriving until our food arrived. There are a lot better places in this city for brunch.
The decor and restaurant were really cool and eclectic. Cocktail selection was great. Went for brunch and the food was pretty good. Had the breakfast sandwich, pick your own skillet, and the donuts. Would recommend going again.
Great spot to sit inside or on rooftop. Slightly elevated food at good (not great price) price but if you take advantage of happy hour your money will go further. Not a place with a lot of options on their menu but all items we ate were solid.
All was great. Only thing is that scallops at $26.00 only had three scallops so a very small portion for the dollar. It was more like an appetizer
Loved the roof top and drink specials. Appetizers were very good
Enjoyed our time on the rooftop for a special date night. Huge portions on the entrees! We split the Amish Chicken and we’re blown away by the flavor and juiciness. Really like the deliver eggs appetizer. Would definitely visit again!
Great service, great food and great atmosphere!!! Loved it!
The food was incredible and we really enjoyed the restaurant overall!
We loved the food and ambiance but would have liked to have better service. They were short-staffed and busy and as a result, my husband’s order didn’t get put in. The manager was very nice and comped his meal but it was a bit frustrating for everyone else to have their food and he didn’t for a while after. Overall though, we would definitely give it another try! The food was amazing!!
Perfect spot for sunday funday. Ate our brunch inside where it was a little cooler and then went onto deck for some drinks. Perfect portions and food is really good. We enjoyed that there was a separate cocktail menu on the deck. Very summery and fun drinks.
