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.

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.

One of the best meals we’ve had in recent times. The truffle ricotta is a must. Everything was perfect - from the interiors, the service, the food 👌🏻

What wonderful food and excellent service. Loved the caponata and the tiramisu was creamy and tasted freshly made.

We were in London for eight days & made reservations at Bernardi’s twice. The dishes are fresh and flavorful! Fabulous service & decor added to our experience. We’ll be back!

The restaurant looked promising, the majority of the dishes though were really not on the quality level we expexted. No value for money on that. Service was ok. If you want to go there, just turn around the corner. Very nice atmosphere in the Persian quarter and lors of nice restaurants.

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..

Bernardi's is always a favourite to a Ladies night out for cocktails and nibbles at the bar, to Family dining. The staff always take time to make something bespoke for my fussy son. From a quick bite to long lunch with friends on a Sunday Bernardi's caters to all. We dine at least once a month but usually more

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.
