Last night was the perfect family meal. We had guests visiting, many children and 2 dogs. Birch & Vine went out of their way to accommodate us. They seated us outside with plenty of heaters. The kids were able to order from the kids menu and they brought the dogs water bowls. The food was excellent. We ate filet, scallops, rib eye meatloaf, bison, oysters, baked potato, and chocolate cake. All were absolutely delicious. Our server was excellent. Definitely a meal to remember.

Ashley and our waitress Alexis were absolutely amazing! I treated one of my best friends to dinner to celebrate her birthday and Ashley was more than accommodating to make the night special for her! We arrived about 40 mins before the time I made the reservation for and Ashley made sure we were still set up in a very nice booth to celebrate the occasion! Alexis even sang happy birthday to my best friend when she brought out desert which was a very nice bonus and unexpected treat! I will definitely be returning to try out their brunch and bottomless mimosas with my friends in the near future! Thank you so much again Ashley and Alexis!!!

Food was great. So creative and full of flavor surprises. Waitress as very friendly and good when she was there. She would disappear for lengths of time??? maybe other tables inside as we were on the balcony. Waiting for another glass of wine or other was a little frustrating. Our friends who came from Boca for their 50th wedding anniversary loved it but were sadden by the absentee server.

Restaurant is appealing to a more upscale market. Menu is limited and pretty much ala carte, so the combined cost of of drinks, appetizer, entre, and dessert is pricey. That having been said, our party of six had a variety of items, all of which were very good as was the service. Of special note are the desserts which were outstanding. We dined in doors and the ambiance was good. Only criticism was the background music which was light rock, and didn’t seem a good fit for upscale dining. Would definitely recommend.

Beck was our server and went above and beyond serving us for our NYE and Anniversary dinner. We had champagne, a cheese and meat charcuterie board, steaks and veggies and a yummy s’mores desert. We had a great time and would consider going back again. Only thing, I was hoping to be able to check out the rooftop bar but due to it being NYE they charged a $50 entrey fee. Overall it was a very expensive evening but we very much enjoyed getting splurged.

The food and wine was fabulous. I had the fish tacos, simple and full of flavor. The issue was they were short staffed. I get the staffing issue, but we waited more then 15 minutes after being seated for someone to come to the table. We ordered immediately, food was served hot and quickly, never saw waitress again, even though we did want another glass of wine, then decided to forget the wine, and had to hunt her down for the check. I would dine here again, because it was a snapshot in time, and they all said it was short staffed.

We made a reservation for 4 to sit outside on a Thursday afternoon. The waiter, Denny, was very attentive and went out of his way to get our drinks. They were out of the beer my husband asked for and he made sure to find one. Above and beyond! The food was ok. Not great but not bad. The special Caesar salad with steak tips was average - the steak was very chewy, tough and over cooked. The wedge with shrimp was very good and I would definitely order again. The trio with grilled ham and cheese and cauliflower soup was a hit and miss. Sandwich very bready and small, soup very good. Overall, would definitely go back most specifically for the excellent service.

Christmas Eve Disaster
We made a reservation for Dinner as we understood it at 3:15 because the 5:00 request slot was supposedly unavailable. We expected the Christmas Eve special menu to be available late afternoon, but they gave us a breakfast/brunch menu, totally unsuitable for the day, and said we couldn’t order dinner until 4:00. That then became 5:00, so it was 2 hours before we could get our dinner. There were many other tables who expected the same as we did. We had my 90 year old mother with us for a special evening that was a disaster. There were also plenty of tables available by 5:00 so we essentially sat there all that time for no good reason. The food was mediocre and the service not much better even though it was not crowded. Never again.

It was overpriced. $37 for 5 scallops on a 1/2 cup of fruity risotto. Wedge salad was not a traditional wedge. Birch and Vine is typically one of our "go to" spots, but will think twice now. Would not currently recommend.

We had a wonderful dinner with friends , and our waiter, Joe, made the evening that much better. He was pleasant, funny, helpful, and knowledgeable. Would love to always have him serve us when we dine here! We also appreciated being seated up on the outside patio, not on the sidewalk. It was much quieter and the hanging heaters were very welcome on a chilly (can you believe it?) evening.
We all enjoyed a wonderful charcuterie board and drinks (Happy Hour prices on the drinks are great!). Our party also enjoyed the bisque, wedge salad, the Salmon entree, Tuna entree, and the vegetable entree.
All in all, it was a great experience, and we highly recommend Birch and Vine!

Overall positive experience but some disappointments. Started with the smoked fish spread which was plated beautifully but was very bland and a little dry. The sauces helped but still dry. Our server was great and changed it out for the ribs which were very tender and well seasoned. Wedge salad was just ok. My daughter and I had the scallops which were absolutely amazing as a composed dish but could have had larger or more scallops for $37. My husband had the meatloaf which was also very good with the mashed potatoes but could have had more Demi on it to keep it from drying out. Finished with the ‘Burg which was very cute and a light, refreshing dessert.

Beautiful restaurant, especially outside at Christmastime. Server was very friendly, but not very attentive. Food was okay, but no more than that. Overcooked steaks, the blandest fish dip I’ve tasted ( but gorgeous presentation), loaded baked potato was not great. The bill for two was over $200, which would have been fine if the food was better. Definitely a style over substance restaurant.
