We were seated 30 minutes after our reservation time. They were apologetic. The menu selection was limited. The shrimp and calamari appetizer was good. My steak was cooked a perfect medium well and was tasty. The potatoes seemed old, didn’t taste like they were freshly made. The greatest disappointment was the cook on my husband’s steak. He likes medium well and his was rare. We told the staff and they offered to re-fire the steak he was already eating. That’s gross offering to take food back to the kitchen that he was already eating. Didn’t seem like a sanitary suggestion. At this point our appetite is gone. The manager did apologize and gave us a desert. It was sad that my husband had to take his steak back home to cook it. We were so disappointed and would not recommend or return.

Noisy-noisy-noisy. You could barely hear the person sitting across from you at a table of four. My steak was very tough. Was told by the waiter that he would tell the chef, but no adjustment or consideration or other accommodation was ever made. Don’t think I’ll be going back.

Tamale was not a tamale at all, just a corn salsa that was too spicy. They ran out of grouper, so we had crab cake, which was mostly filler, and tuna, which was good quality but bland without wasabi or ginger. Service was indifferent. Menu very limited. Excellent wine list and pleasant outdoor seating didn’t overcome shortcomings.

In my time in St Pete, I ate dinner at Birch & Vine twice! One evening the Salmon entree and it was absolutely delicious and full of flavors...yum! The next visit I had the Vietnamese-style Short Ribs and they hit it out of the park again! The meat was falling off the bone...tender as can be and filled with flavors and a bit spicy too! It was also served with a vinegar-based slaw that gave it a nice flavorful contrast! IF, I’d have to choose a better of the 2...I’d go with the short ribs...very good & 👍🏽up! I started with a side salad that included field greens, walnuts, goat cheese and I’m sure I’m missing ingredients but that too was full of flavor and greens were fresh & aldente too! lastly, I enjoyed a great Cab from Hess, Napa...delicious...cheers!

I planned my New Year's around this particular restaurant and was VERY disappointed. I want to note that the staff were wonderful and pleasant and they by no means influenced my poor review. I had heard that their food was good also and that was not the case. I had freezing cold crab cakes that were not good and I am not sure they would be good had they not been pre-cooked and sitting out. I also had a salad that was large but not tasty. Lastly, it's hard to describe how small the pour of wine I got when I ordered a Cabernet by the glass... I would say it was about 1/4 of a normal glass of wine. We left after about 40 minutes and went to another place for New Years. It was really a shame, they are in such a great location and should be able to handle a NYE flow of customers and still maintain quality.

I took my mother in law and husband there for a pre New Years Eve late lunch in the dining room. The server was great, very attentive and informative about the brunch menu. The food was fantastic! Could not have been better. My husband raved over the pork belly poutain and he is not an expressive guy! And my family loved the holiday decor. Thank you for a memorable lunch.

Our reservations were for 7 pm. When we arrived our table was not ready, it was Christmas Eve and very busy. We did not mind the wait. The manager came over and apologize for the wait and offered us a complimentary drink. We had only been waiting no more than 5 mins. Our free wine arrived just as they seated us for dinner. Excellent customer service!
The food was wonderful and the setting beautiful.
It was our first time there and definitely will not be our last. Next year we may even stay at the hotel.

Been there several times was great but not this time. When checking in hostess said the table was inside then we came down for dinner from the bar and she told us we were outside at the canopy. When questioned why it was not inside she said she never said that. The dinners were not as good as past visits same goes for the service. Hopefully they'll get back to the quality of food and service we experienced in past visits.

The bar at the top, known as Canopy, is excellent though a bit higher priced than its neighbors but the view and the scene is worth it. The restaurant downstairs is wonderful and has outdoor seating, with a view of the park and the bay beyond. The food is excellently prepared and the wine list is pretty extensive. The dish of the night was a dessert that had a pine oil ice cream that actually was quite good and the surprise of the night was the fact that the dessert was covered with caviar. Overcoming my initial reluctance, I tried it and it was delicious and everyone at the table enjoyed it. The table next to us was intrigued and order it as well and when we left, they were ordering two more. So it was good as well as memorable.

Our food was good but the service was slow and unprofessional. All 3 cocktails (at $11 each) were incorrect, as was a draft beer. When pointed out to the server, she did not offer to get the correct order. The lighting was too dark and the noise level made it impossible to have dinner conversation. We have dined here a year ago, sitting outside, and the meal was lovely. Perhaps it was just an off night, but the prices are too high for that to happen.
