We celebrated my girlfriend’s birthday. The decor and ambiance is perfect. They had a Happy Birthday sign on the table waiting for us. It was a nice touch. Our server Juan was nice and attentive, but not bothersome. They have a good wine selection and we ordered a nice bottle for the occasion. I had the scallops, crabcake app, and we shared the strawberry salad. She is Vegan and had the Cruciferious which she absolutely loved. Thank god! Jk. I had the peanut butter chocolate mousse bar and she had the only Vegan option which was the sorbet. She didn’t really care for the sorbet. Overall, the food and service was fantastic. There is definitely room for improvement on the Vegan side. The only Vegan appetizer was salad. Only one entree choice and just a non-creative average sorbet choice for dinner.

It had been a while since we dined at B&V, and we were ready to give it another chance. The last two times we were there, we felt the food had slipped a notch, but this time all of our entrees were excellent. The scallops & grits were uniquely paired with root vegetables and the flavors were outstanding. Servings were very generous, and service was very good. The only flaw is the noise level. It seems to be a trend in downtown restaurants to wrap all surfaces in hard materials, so that when the table of 8-12, and there almost always is one, starts chatting louder and louder, and they always do, you soon are deafened. Nonetheless, we’ll be back! Perhaps wearing earmuffs.

Everything... From begin to end was amazing! The check in, the service, the food (delicious and amazing). Our server Valentina was spectacular. Best food in St. Pete! At the end, we went up to the rooftop for a quick night cap and it was pretty cool as well.

Visited on new years eve so I'd like to go back when it's not as busy but the short of it is that the food is great but the service was terrible. Our waiter forgot about us... We had to make an effort to get his attention multiple times as he was walking by. He also forgot that we ordered dessert. We also made a reservation but still had to wait more than 20 minutes to be seated. One positive is that the restaurant is on a great location in the heart of St Pete. The scallops and pork belly and calamari were good.

My first time here, now I understand it is new years eve, and I deeply appreciate everyone who works on the holidays, so we may enjoy ourselves and I thank them for that always. Being from out of town, I was happy to get a reservation for this evening. But the evening started with them giving away my table after checking in. The cell service and wifi was not working so when they text me that my table was ready, I did not get the message until 25 minutes later. I was ten feet away from the hostess in the lounge. it would not have been that hard after a minute or two to have one of the other hostess walk the lounge and see if I was there; do you honestly think I am going to give up a reservation to dinner on new years eve, so I had to wait another 50 minutes on top of the 55 minutes I already waited for a table. I try not to have one thing ruin my evening, but this basically did, and I always walk in with an attitude that I may have to wait a little longer than my reservation. I am all about service and again I understand it is new years eve, but if you are going to service an event like this, you should be on top of your game, and I understand this is Florida and not New Jersey. The dinner was okay, nothing to write home about; the wait service was very good. It was the bar staff that did not have their game together. I believe there were three bar persons, but in my opinion they did not work the bar very well. One bartender was on top of his game, but only worked one side of the bar, and that is were everyone was congregating to, the other two girls more or less ignored you. A good bartender will work the whole bar starting at one end and working around, I know because I was a bartender in my youth. It was not that crowded at the bar and took about 15 minutes before I could beg to get a drink. Will I come here again when in town, yes when it is a normal night out. Over all they did a very good job for a very busy and hectic evening as this.

Wife orders filet medium well and was bloody x 10. Took 1/2 hour to get drinks. Walked up to hostess and before I asked her where the restroom was she said “down the hall on the right for you”. Nice!?! Sever was nice but overwhelmed. Not his fault, tipped him well. Manager needs to be at McDonald’s.

Normally, the food is excellent and the surroundings quiet. However, we must have been there on an off night (Tuesday) because the tables were loud and the food came out cold. Even the Filet was a little fatty. A disappointing visit, but will give it one more try because the other visits were excellent.

We had an excellent experience! Great wine selection. Scallops and grits were flavorful. Hubby enjoyed his lamb. Chocolate peanut butter dessert was amazing. Server was attentive and knowledgeable. Hostesses were young and a bit off putting but don’t let that dissuade you from enjoying a great meal.

Extraordinary, delicious and accommodating. We went here for our 5th Anniversary. They swapped us into a booth instead of table. Very attentive. Every member of the staff we interacted with wished us a Happy Anniversary (nice touch). Dinner was phenomenal (cottage pie & lamb bolognese) Drinks were great (misunderstood mule & birchwood old fashioned). Price was very reasonable. Ambiance was very nice. Would have been very romantic, but the large groups started rolling in. We stopped at the Canopy rooftop lounge above the restaurant, a must try. Overall fantastic. Recommended. We'll be back!

Always a treat to dine at the Birch and Vine. Charcuterie platter was delicious as was our tuna. Turkey soup was served without a spoon. After several minutes, I got up to request one. At that point the soup was cold. Otherwise, a great restaurant.

We had people in our party who were hard of hearing. When I made the reservation I asked for a quiet spot, They gave us a small private room. It was great! The rest of the restaurant was quite lively, so this was a light saver.

We had a great service and a great time,

The food was awful. Bolognese had barely enough sauce to cover the noodles. Steak came out well done (ordered medium), other two dishes were mediocre at best. This was a special occasion dinner and it was definitely not.....beyond disappointing. I forgot to add the hostess said “there’s your table, menus are on the table...” UNBELIEVABLE!

We were greeted as if we were an inconvenience both downstairs and up. Once seated, we sat for over 10 minutes without anyone approaching us. We had to stop someone and ask if they knew who our server was. A manager? Team lead? Came by, offered to cover our first drink but did t take the order himself. Server finally came by and we gave our drink order dinner order and requested a bottle of wine with our meal. Another 10 minute passes, we get someone stopping to fill our water(we had nothing to this point), they fill one glass half way and the second 3/4 full. It was the odd escape thing. Things did improve as the night went on but they weren’t packed. I sure why the service was so bad compared to previous visits.

We were a party of four for Thanksgiving dinner, two of us returning from an excellent experience a year ago. The main problem this time around was the server, who couldn't seem to deliver three cocktails at the same time or as ordered or to the correct individuals. Later, he forgot to bring the bottle of wine. Two of us were nowhere near finishing our their first course when the entree came. Three of us had that day's special Thanksgiving plate with turkey and trimmings. The food was tasty enough but came to the table lukewarm with the sauce growing gelatinous. High point: the turkey puzzle, delicious.

Great experience overall! Seated rapidly, an efficient and helpful server, capped with a phenomenal meal. Lamb was among the best we've had in Tampa Bay and the Cruciferous plate topped with Ahi tuna was superb. Will be back soon!
