Yummy – The desserts here are amazing and there are so many to choose from. The atmosphere is amazing. Perfect for a romantic evening. Would recommend to everyone
Get the Banana's Foster – The Bern's dessert room has a mind-boggling array of choices for both desserts and after dinner drinks. However, one stands above all, the banana's foster. Anyone not familiar with the preparation of this delicious Southern dessert will get an intimate tutorial. A cart equipped with propane burners is wheeled to your table as your server creates the dish before your eyes. Not only is this fantastic entertainment, it tastes heavenly. For those that must have chocolate, their cakes are incredible as well.
Amazing Food even better service – I have been to the Harry Waugh dessert room many times and I must say there isnt a better place to have a romantic date. The food is so amazing, I especially reccomend the Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate. Another great part of this place is the service, Darcel is a great server and has a bubbly personality. I would reccomend this place to anyone looking to satisfy a sweet tooth!
Four words: Macadamia Nut Ice Cream – To me, ice cream should be in its very own food group. If I could live off it, I would. Bern's macadamia nut ice cream is simply the best ice cream I have ever eaten in my entire life. The first time I tried it, I was skeptical. I don't like macadamia nuts so I really didn't think I would enjoy it. I only ordered it because my curiosity was piqued by hearing that Mr. Bern's went through God knows how many recipes before arriving at this one. Mr. Bern knew what he was doing. Rich, sinful, creamy, smooth as silk.
Tampa Native – I have lived in Tampa since December 1985 and have always heard about Berns Steak house and the Harry Waugh Dessert Room. In December 2004 I took my wife to the dessert room after a nice dinner elsewhere to celebrate her graduation. While the dessert room was everything it was hyped up to be.....I would not rate it the number place to go or thing to do in Tampa. This is one of the best cities in the country with many others activities that I would rank higher.
Select from among the most luxurious desserts--bananas foster to creme brulee--at the top of Tampa's fanciest joint. – The Scene
Nothing prepares you for it; not even the rococo excess of Bern's Steak House downstairs. People say, "Dine in individual hollowed-out wine casks." Or, "There are individual, wall-mounted radios to set the mood at your table." You hear something about an accordionist, and maybe flambéing waiters. Rumors about this romantic, dessert-only place (named after a wine-writing crony of Bern) get the heart racing.
If romance leaves you cold, the sheer quantity of sugar, high-octane coffee and gorgeous after-dinner drinks are bound to give you a little thrill. Especially thrilling are the Framboise Macadamia Decadence, a tidy chocolate-cake cylinder flavored with raspberry filling; the Chocolate-Chocolate-Chocolate, light mousse segueing to denser cheesecake and even denser pie--all chocolate; or the drama of cognac-redolent cherries jubilee served with fat scoops of vanilla ice cream. And to go with it all: house cappuccino of Kahlua-marinated ground beans topped with lush vanilla cream.
