We had an incredible lunch at Bernard’s, as we’ve come to expect! Wonderful service and incredible food!
Amazing, from start to finish. A perfect night for our 10th anniversary!
Our trip to Bernards was as always a memorable eating expereance. The service was exquisite, food outstanding and eating outside in the garden was really nice.
An outdoor gem with excellent food and service. One of my favorites in the area.
we started our meal by sharing an antipasto which included and excellent chef made terrine. Both of us had the best soft-shell crab we have ever eaten. The friendly efficient service could not have been improved.
This was our first trip to Bernard's and we were not disappointed. It was a birthday diner and everything was excellent. Service. Food. Decor. Highly recommend.
If you are there the right time of year, check out their beautiful gardens.
Also, one of our diners is gluten and dairy intolerant. The staff could not have been more accommodating and we had no issues whatsoever.
Excellent food. Professional waiter Will, and pianist added a great touch to indoor dining.
Excellent food in a great outdoor dining experience
We always enjoy dining at Bernard’s. Everyone is very welcoming and the service is superb. The menu is varied and everything we have tried is delicious and beautifully prepared and presented. The wine list is extensive.
Bernard’s is a restaurant on our favorite list. You cannot go wrong with this beautiful and complete dining experience.
We have been wanting to dine at Bernard's for years and finally made it a point to celebrate our 45th anniversary there. Every course was more delicious than the next! Was definitely NOT disappointed!! Plan on going back in the near future! Fabulous wine selection!
Very impressed with the waiter and his knowledge of the menu. Service was excellent.
Bernard's has the feel of an upscale inn with tables set a comfortable distance apart. The menu is quite extensive and our dishes were well prepared and stylishly presented. Service was impeccable, adding to our five-star experience. We will definitely be back,
Another fantastic meal and experience dining outside under the stars. The weather held out and the level of food, service and ambiance were all outstanding. Bravo!
It's always a pleasure to dine in your delightful garden at our favorite table. Every course is well prepared bursting with fresh flavors and textures. Our server Hannah was attentive and personable which adds to the experience. Bernard's is definitely a Fairfield County treasure.
Poised as an upscale restaurant the service and food represented that of a mediocre one. Our waitress was friendly but unaccommodating and pushed to order all food together as opposed to just appetizers first. We started with drinks, but they were poorly made. The French 75 tasted like it was only champagne. I got the blueberry mojito of which you couldn’t taste the blueberry or mint. We started with the truffle baked Brie and and tuna tartare, neither of which were anything more than ordinary. The tartare was under seasoned and masked by avocado and the baked Brie had no flavor of truffle with too much puff pastry. I had the buffalo sirloin which was done well, with a tasty chimichuri. My date had the duck which was overcooked. Overall, drastically missed on my expectations based on the way the eatery is presented.
Very romantic spot to celebrate your anniversary. Might also be the best wine list in Fairfield County. While there was a bit of a sticker shock, the price is completely justified in the quality of ingredients, prep, presentation and service. Our waiter was a total professional.
Most importantly...the food: my wife had the Duck confit, and I had the special of the day, Buffalo strip cooked medium...paired with a Bordeaux. Both Neal's were delicious (my wife and I always take at least a few bites of each other's dishes. We finished off with a chocolate mousse and berry compote dish (can't remember the official name of that dessert). Perfect meal in an adorable restaurant!
Classic French mixed with modern favorites. The menu is currently the best of Bernards and Sarah’s wine bar favorites and they do not disappoint. The scallop appetizer with corn quinoa, wild mushrooms, asparagus and lemon vinegarette was spectacular.
The wine list is extensive and accommodates anyone’s tastes. There are also “Bernards picks” which have never disappointed me.
This restaurant is our go to place whether for a casual meal at Sarah’s or elegant fine dining at Bernards. It is truly the best of both worlds.
We sat in garden and there was beautiful live music. The music was relaxing and perfect for the setting. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Food was delicious. I had chicken paillard. Simple but with a twist of grains. French onion soup was so good and chocolate mousse was perfect ending to our meal. Can’t wait to go back.
Had a very pleasant dinner, outdoors on a lovely evening with guitar music in the background.
We reserved a table in the garden for a beautiful dinner celebrating Father’s Day. Every aspect was perfect and we will return soon for another exceptional dining experience.
It was a lovely experience for Father’s Day.
He food, service and ambience is wonderful.
We also love the pianist. His choice of music is perfect!
We have been dining at Bernard's for several years, and have never been disappointed. The service is very professional, the food is outstanding, we are never rushed, and the ambience is lovely both inside and outdoors.
Bernard’s is our family’s favorite elegant restaurant in Ridgefield - our go-to for any special occasion. Worth every dime!
Perfect meal. We had the octopus which was tender? And the swordfish and lobster with not a bad bite in the bunch
A most delightful experience of fine dining in a beautiful garden. The food is both unusual and perfectly prepared. The service welcoming and professional. The outside tables are socially distanced and very comfortable. The Shimmering Violet cocktail is my favorite! We’ll be back very soon.
Excellent meal in a relaxed. welcoming atmosphere.
we had a marvelous time and the food was wonderful.
Fantastic food , beautiful gardens and atmosphere, a wonderful server and live music ! Everything you need for a wonderful night out ! I highly recommend Bernards .
Wonderful anniversary dinner in the lovely garden with evening entertainment
Some traffic noise, pretty garden setting, issues with staff music from the kitchen playing in the background, hair in wine glass and mussels' sauce was watery and not flavorful, some fruit was pre-cut days earlier and it showed. They try, but can do better.
Our first time eating out since the pandemic began was most enjoyable and delicious!
Beautiful evening to sit in the garden with live music and lighting that added to the ambience. Great food and service.
very good restaurant in a middle of nowhere...it is a charming place !
Bernard’s delivers every time. We love our dinners and the lovely staff who always greet us with a smile. The food is wonderful in every way, every time. In the garden or in the dining room, it is a true dining experience.
Would love to see even more typical French dishes
Amazingly slow service. Deafening noise level from a singer/guitarist, performing in a low-ceilinged room. We asked for the volume to be reduced but were told no.
Very wonderful meal
The food was outstanding.
