Dear Berc's,

My new husband and I had the pleasure of hosting our wedding reception at Berc's Steakhouse in Peterborough ON, on October 9, 2011, from beginning to end, we found Mary and the entire team to be absolutely outstanding.

I would not hesitate to recommend Berc's Steakhouse in Peterborough for any event. I cannot thank Mary and her team enough for everything that they did for us to make our wedding reception a success.

I write to one and all today to offer personal appreciation and congratulations for a job exceedingly well done on behalf of the Clark Family Luncheon, which was hosted at your business establishment this past Saturday, December 10. I cannot think of a better setting in all of Peterborough, to have held the family’s pre-Christmas gathering. Service personnel, kitchen staff and planning staff are all to be commended for attention to detail and expert delivery of service and product. On behalf of all family members, in attendance for the event, I take this opportunity to thank you for making our gathering the pleasure that it was to become on Saturday. It is now a fine memory for all participants.

Unfortunately, the family member, who made the reservation arrangements with you some weeks ago, was unable to attend due to a sudden health situation which required complete convalescence on Saturday. I have written to my aunt to assure her that every detail was carried out as she hoped for in choosing Berc’s for our December gathering this year. I am greatly impressed with the ambiance which has been created for dining in a relaxed yet formal environ. The private dining room is just what we needed for the family’s special occasion. Congratulations on the décor which is found throughout the restaurant. I also take this opportunity to thank the planning team responsible for the menu arrangements as well as providing a very impressive menu print-out, which was found at every seat around the large table on Saturday. What a splendid balance and variety in the menu choices!

Last but far from least, the kitchen staff charged with the task of preparing the meals in a timely order is to be congratulated and thanked for a job expertly handled. Every meal choice was thoroughly enjoyed – tasty, admirably presented and served up in well trained and experienced style. Your efforts did not go without attention and acknowledgement. I will be making recommendation to the family that we return to Berc’s next December for a repeat visit. I can hardly wait! In the meantime, those of us who have the freedom of retirement will be heading back to Berc’s for a luncheon together come March 2017.

I am the big, bald, old tall guy who once had responsibility for a family farm located east of Berc’s in Otonabee Township. I visit your establishment two to three times each year. Cheers and merriment this season!

I LOVE going to Berc’s to enjoy a night out!

The food is always outstanding and the service is excellent! The atmosphere is very relaxing and I never feel rushed.

My favourite item is the Filet Mignon. I highly recommend Berc’s for special occasions or just a night out. Treat yourself…you won’t regret it!

Thank-you for organizing an elegant wedding rehearsal dinner. Everyone was so impressed by the quality of the food and the atmosphere.

We had such a wonderful time they are still talking about it. I know it shouldn't have outdone the wedding dinner but it so did. Kudos to Berc's. I will definitely use you for future functions with recommendations to my friends.

Thank-you, again. Mr. & Mrs. Jason Bodechon will remember your establishment as being their first date and their last date as single people. By the way, they ate the exact meals both times. Maybe you put a little love in your cheesecake.

Four years ago, we discovered Berc’s. Because of our previous experience we sought you out again while vacationing this past July.

I usually feel I make the best steaks but your restaurant changed all that. The tenderness and taste made for an unforgettable experience. The iron steak was my favourite, spiced wonderfully without taking away the distinct natural steak flavour. Even my re-baked potato was a treat, not heavy and delicately flavoured and lightly moist. The servers are caring, attentive, cheerful and knowledgeable.

I would recommend your establishment to anyone. I can hardly wait to have the opportunity to be in your area again. I hope not to have to wait four years again. Thank you for making this part of our vacation wonderful.

I just wanted to say thank you for helping me organize and set up everything for our wedding at your restaurant. Everything went smoothly and everyone had a wonderful time. We received excellent feedback on the food and how classy the restaurant is! So, thank you very much for making our day special!

What an experience!! By far, Peterborough's (and the Durham Region's) BEST STEAKHOUSE!!

The food was incredible. Melt in your mouth steak (I had the 12oz New York Strip, Medium ...I could have cut it with a butter knife it was so tender) ...fresh vegetables with button mushrooms, all on a sizzling skillet. Your choice of potato on the side (I had the roasted red....they were perfect). Delicious salad to start... great ambience with the little candle on the table...the lighting in the restaurant was perfect, piano music coming across the house sound system.

We sat on the upper level, nice, quiet, private and intimate. Our servers were awesome, very neat and professional and very attentive. Great selection of everything, from food to wine. Very reasonably priced and once again absolutely delicious. I have told EVERYONE I have run into about this restaurant...and what I say still won't do it justice. You have to go there to see and taste just what I am talking about.

Thank you so much for making our evening a very special and memorable one. It was perfect. P.S. - for dessert ...you gotta try the Ravioli!! Wicked.

Tried this restaurant last night for the first time and was very pleasantly surprised, the food was excellent. My sister and her husband are big fans of The Keg but of course we don't have one in the Kawartha's so we all decided to give Berc's a try. The prices were about the same as The Keg but the quality of the food was superior. We will be back again soon. Thanks

Reanna,

Our server was great, the chef and the entire experience was very good. We have had dinners from all over North America and some parts of Europe, but for the city of Peterborough, fantastic!
