Bernardin's Restaurant at the Zevely House Ratings and Reviews

We had been really excited about going to Bernadin's. The meal was pretty good, but we have had better service at less expensive places. The food could have used a little more seasoning. I had the scallops, and she she had the salmon. We would we go back....maybe, but we have better meals overall at several other establishments in the area.

This is my first visit to this restaurant. I came here with my wife for her birthday. The food was great and they have a great menu. I had the Lamb chops and they were made perfectly, nice and tender and medium rare. My wife had steak and lobster and she loved it. It was a big filet, so big she had to take some of it home. the personnel were very friendly and prompt. The atmosphere is great as it is in an old house made into a restaurant near the center of Winston Salem. We are looking forward to coming back in the summer to see how it is to eat outside in their open area. Great food and a good time.

Great creative food and service. Always something uniques on the menu. I had the NC Emu which was delicious. First time I have had Emu and I would only try in a quality resteraunt like Bernardins. My wife had the lamb chops which were perfectly cooked and seasoned.

Bernardins is one of the best restaurants in town. The different types of food provided is a must for people who like a steak or different types of meat not traditionally eaten at restaurants. The staff is excellent and you walk out feeling like one of the most important people around.

My correct reservation via Open Table was not received by the restaurant and the man who intervened at the restaurant was incredibly rude. It was a busy night, i.e., a discount night, so he probably felt stressed anyway and now had to figure out how to accommodate two people who he couldn't account for in his seating plan. Nevertheless, he was inappropriately rude, accusatory and defensive -- especially for a restaurant of this stature. We were seated and enjoyed the rest of our experience at Bernardin's.

This was our second time at Bernardin's and the food was very good--as it was the first time we were there. I love the variety of meats (camel and emu not your standard fare at most places). Notable this time was the service--or maybe lack thereof. The guy was polite enough and we felt welcomed, but he was consistently "off" just a little bit with the order from start to finish. We had to remind him of the wine order..and later repeat the request for the chiller; didn't offer the right food to the right person when it finally arrived; didn't offer pepper when the food was delivered; had to ask about the dessert offerings. All minor things, but in quantity made the experience a little less than before. That said...the food is good enough to give it another chance down the road.

I was a bit disappointed. My husband & I went for his birthday meal . We just moved to the area and a friend suggested it . It was very average . I don't have much to say in general . It wasn't bad , just mediocre & most definitely from Our experience , not worth the cost however The staff was friendly.

Historic home in downtown Winston Salem. Excellent food. Small dining rooms make for an intimate feel. Only negative is the restrooms are on the bottom floor which means if you need access to a restroom more than once during visit it can be difficult, especially if you are in one of the top floor dining rooms.

Hands down, the BEST meal I have EVER had. We chose the crab cakes as our appetizer, and they were absolutely delicious. What a crab cake SHOULD be. I had the surf and turf with goat cheese, spinach and potato cake. Everything was cooked to perfection. The lobster was tender and cooked perfect as well... which is hard to find. My fiancée, (he proposed downstairs in the romantic lounge area!!!!), had camel with a bone marrow truffle sauce... absolutely incredible. I will definitely go back while they have the camel! I also had the most amazing glass of Argentinian Malbec. Smooth and perfect. It drank as smooth as water. Our server, Brittany, was charming and knowledgeable without being stuffy. Timely without rushing us, and a very skilled and professional server. Everything was just so wonderful. Besides the fact that we got engaged there! ;)

My boyfriend and I dined here for New Year's Eve. He had never been and really enjoyed it! The food was great - he took a risk and ordered the Emu and loved it. I tried it and it was very very tasty. I had the lamb which was wonderful. Delicious wine. Good service. We had a great NYE dinner!

This was my first time and we were celebrating New Year's Eve with some dear friends. It was everything I had hoped for. The food was delicious (I ordered surf and turf) and it was reasonable priced for a higher end restaurant. My filet was cooked to perfection and I could cut it with a fork if I wanted but used my knife like a big girl should, ha. I would love to take my parents here when they come in from Augusta, GA but my mother has trouble with stairs. One definitely has to do some climbing up in down, especially if you need to stop by the ladies (or gents) room which is located in the basement down a really old but super cool brick stairwell.

Our 1st visit & it was New Year's Eve so any 'problems' I would attribute to this. But,man, the place was noisy. In fact, I refused to eat dessert there as I was just too uncomfortable. My guess that on a 'normal' night it would not be like this. We were at a small table & next to us was a party of 8 & they were really enjoying themselves. We enjoyed our food, tho. :)

My wife and i were celebrating our 46th wedding anniversary and every thing was great. We have been going to the Bernadrin Zevely House for 40 years. Always been a great restaurant. Outstanding cuisine . We have always loved going there.

Superb cuisine,expertly described and delivered by our server. Wonderful menu and specials, wish we could have tried more. A bit pricey,but, reasonable for our special occasion. Chef was responsive to our requests. A minor problem was the noise level due to nearby obnoxious vacuous Wake Forest students who celebrate end of exams at a five star restaurant routinely. I celebrated end of exams with a whopper, with fries when I could afford it. Oh well. So, superb memorable cuisine and we will be back.

I usually LOVE this place so I'm hoping that Saturday night was a "Saturday night during the holiday season anomaly." I order the SAME dinner each and every time we go: RARE tuna, soba noodles and bok choy. What a disappointment. My tuna was MR-M, soba noodles a pile of mush, and wasabi sauce all over the place - totally took away from the delicate flavors and overwhelmed the dish. I didn't recognize the plate and I've eaten it a least 5 times before. My husband had the surf and turf and said it was just "OK". But we'll be back. 1/5 are still good odds. We'll just wait 'til the holiday season is well-past.

Food and our waiter Alex were great however, the Receptionist was not pleasant. Got there right before reservation and was greeted with "I just called you" as if we were late. No "Welcome" or "Nice to see you".
Had requested a smaller room due to hearing problems with one friend. Owner/manager told receptionist to move us so they could close down the room we were in. We wanted to stay where we were since there was not as much noise. Waiter kindly said for us to stay. Apparently that did not set well with management. Food came, side dish of broccoli was cold. Requested to have it heated up. Owner/manager came back with side dish and just tossed it on the table with no apology.
We were finishing up our wine and apparently the last table. Owner/manager cuts off the music promptly at 10:00 to run us out. We were almost done and it wasn't like we were going to linger.
I like Bernadine's cuisine, and have been there on several occasions however, we will not be going back anytime soon do to the bad attitude some individual's exhibited. Patrons of a restaurant should not be treated this way and especially when one is paying good money for a meal.

The sophisticated fusion cuisine along with the excellent wine list is a palate pleaser. The wait staff is welcoming and attentive. The finest dinning I have experienced in Winston-Salem... Bar none. Bernardin's has been and always will be a frequent dining spot for me.

Fantastic food and wonderful service. Beautiful location with a lovely outdoor seating area. Dining area in the house is cozy but we chose to eat outside since the weather was perfect. Close to the Steven's Theatre. Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner.

It was an outstanding experience all around. The only negative I have is that the firepit wasn't working as it was a bit chilly outside. I warmed up once I started drinking my delicious Grenache wine. The menu is varied for everyone's tastes which is always a concern. Our waiter was very helpful from choosing wine to our desserts. If I'm ever in NC and nearby Winston Salem, I would run back!

We visited with my brother from FLa. to celebrate three birthdays. It was a beautiful evening and we dined outside. Menu was varied and interesting. Salads particularly were hard to decide on as there were many good offerings. Excellent experience and all were pleased.
