Bernardi’s is a restaurant and bar that opened in September 2015. Located in Marylebone, London, the restaurant is set over 2 floors on a beautiful corner site. The menu is simple, modern Italian that's traditional and casual at heart, but with a youthful fresh approach. On the ground floor you will find the main restaurant, with The Dog House (the cocktail bar) located below.

Bernardi’s provides an exciting dining destination within the Portman Estate, offering everything from lunch and brunch to dinner and evening cocktails.

Bernardi’s has been included in the Michelin Guide to date.

They allowed the table next to us to bring 2 dogs into the restaurant for indoor seating. One of the dogs was very disruptive. It kept jumping up on the booth and hitting my husband with its tail, licking my husband under the table and hitting its tail on our table. When we asked to be moved to another table, the waiter rudely told us we would have to wait. Overall we were treated poorly because we didn’t want to eat our $30-35 steak while trying to make sure a stranger’s dog tail didn’t end up in our plate.

I have eaten at Bernardi's four times over the past year. I love the atmosphere, location and menu but the service is always lacking. The servers are handling too many tables at once and when you constantly have to look for them or remind them that you need something it becomes a bit annoying. If they could figure this out then I'd give a higher rating.

For breakfast, lunch and Dinner, this has to be one of the best places to eat in London at the moment. We had the lightest pizza to start with cod and tuna main courses all excellent. Recently home made made pasta was something to write home about.

Wine is good and well priced..

The food was excellent and there was a lovely gentle buzz. However, we did have to ask the waiters several times for our wine and the patate fritter arrived after our main course which was disappointing.

Three of us had an outstanding meal at Bernardi's on a busy Saturday night. The food was excellent, the service attentive but not overbearing and the ambience of the room was such that we could carry on a conversation without having to speak too loudly. All in all it was an outstanding evening.

Absolutely loved every aspect of this restaurant. The food is outstanding, freshest ingredients,prepared to perfection especially the buratta with blood orange and heritage radicchio and the carpaccio. The service is attentive and friendly whilst not being intrusive and they have an impressive selection of wines all at reasonable prices. The cocktail list is also excellent and could tempt you into staying from brunch to dinner to try them all out.

Good food and drinks. The service could have been a lot better, our waitress made a mistake in our order. Not a big deal and it happens and the manager apologised but our waitress didn’t even acknowledge the error. They also served our food twice when there was no one at our table (my friend and nipped to the toilet and then I had to take a call outside - both times the waiters tried to leave our food growing cold at the table rather than wait 2 minutes for our return). For a meal for two we were charged £180 so would expect a higher level of service.

I went for lunch with my granddaughter. Our welcome and the ambience was excellent. My granddaughter is Vegan and I have an allergy to chilli, both requests were dealt with professionally and with a smile. It was no trouble. We ordered, service was prompt but not rushed, so far so very good. I had prawns as a starter, they were hard and very dry, the sauce was ‘watery’. Onto the main dish, my granddaughter was happy with her pasta, I had lamb. How disappointing! The meat was extremely chewy, to the point that it was difficult to eat, and the vegetables tasteless. I have visited beforehand for brunch and the meal was pleasant. All in all, it would seem that the chef was not up to standard. Sharron Phillips

First visit, won't be the last. The food was great - best beef carpaccio I've ever had. Pasta was on-point, main of lamb delish, and the desserts got a thumbs-up too. But the star of the show was the service. It wasn't intrusive, but it was super-professional. Every time I looked up to get someone's attention, they were there in a flash. All in all, a lovely evening.

On arrival our table was ready .courtiously shown to our table drinks order taken within a few minutes . We had cocktails to begin with which were amazing .we had various starters but notably was the carpaccio of beef which was very good then went onto main course which we had crab linguine again fantastic.after our main meal we had to have dessert ,so what better way to Finnish off an Italian meal than having tiramisu .
Overall a great experience and can not wait to come back.

The food was great. The only drawback was the noise. So many restaurants are far too noisy these days. It makes having a conversation difficult. Restaurants can reduce noise by adding items like carpets and table linin. Modern minimalist design is hard on the ears and bad for the vocal chords. Restauranteurs need to be reminded their eating establishments are not nightclubs, discos or concert halls.

Fantastic evening until we were picked on ..... apparently there was a two hour window..... not at all mentioned in the booking but a waiter who we hadn’t seen all night suddenly told us ‘ all of london has one’ ( ie two hr window) we had not long been offered and bought another bottle of wine.... clearly an attempt to gain all the money yet not offer a comfortable service. The table next to us did not get asked to move even tho they were only fifteen minutes behind us! I decided as we were 3 women we were seen as an easy target! The waiters were lovely- just this one guy who tried to evict us! Lovely food so a shame about our treatment!
