Was very loud inside, more because of the acoustics, then the crowd. It did not seem overly busy, yet the staff were running around in a frantic state. I ordered a delmonico med rare, was cooked med well(which I consider ruins the steak). On the good side, other entrees were delicious (scallops and grits and crabcakes).

Service was absolutely terrible. Took 45 minutes to get a drink order. I’ve never been a complainer but that was by far the worst service I have ever experienced. The table next to us just got up and left it was so bad. This is the only time I have ever done a review but it was so bad I had to do it.

Food was cold and the waiter spilled ice tea all over me and a gift I had brought for my guest. The card inside the bag was completely ruined.

Most of our food was fabulous. The inside is very nice and comfortable. It was fairly quiet then got very loud when large groups came in. The outside is great too with live music. Would definitely recommend.

We were seated next to some loud drunks, our waiter told us he was one of 3 waiters. The service verified that. My soup came without a spoon. One of the managers came over a few minutes later and insisted he reheat my soup. I begged him to just give me a spoon but he took the soup anyway. A few minutes later the waiter brought the spoon. Now I had the spoon and no soup. I could go on but you get the idea. I have been to your restaurant on many occasions and have always had a good experience but this was a comedy of errors. I’ll be back and hope for a better time!

Birch and Vine at the Birchwood is a fine restaurant. I was very pleased with the service, menu, and room assigned to us. I had a group of 6 people, and they gave us a private room. It was a great for this occasion.

We went there early to bring friends upstairs to experience The Canopy roof top and the beautiful view of St Pete. When we went downstairs for dinner in the restaurant, we ordered another round of drinks. It was odd but they did not have the variety of drinks available in the restaurant downstairs with what they had at the Roof Top Canopy, particularly the flavored Vodka's. But the Restaurant manager was kind enough to go upstairs to get us a bottle of the flavored Vodka we were drinking so that we didn't have to change our drinks, which we thought was very accommodating.

Had great service. Ordered crab cakes, spinach salad, steaks and banana's forster. Salad was $14 but too big, you could eat 1/3 of it. There was an issue with the steak order but have to say the problem was handled immediately and smoothly. That reason alone is enough to recommend this restaurant.

The rooftop bar (The Canopy) is a great semi-casual hangout with good music and really nice views of downtown St Pete. We did not eat at The Canopy rooftop bar, but instead had dinner downstairs at the Birch and Vine restaurant. IMO, the Birch & Vine menu prices are high and the quality should be better for what you're paying per entree. Soup and Salad are not included with entrees and this is not noted on the menu, but your waiter/waitress will ask you "would you like soup or salad with your dinner?" leaving most folks to assume it must be included (especially considering the price of their entrees), but they are not and can run you $5 - $9 extra so buyer beware. Service was excellent, zero issues with the staff. Overall we had a positive experience and would return again, but it only earned 3 stars overall from us.

My wife and I stayed at the Birchwood hotel for the weekend and chose to eat dinner our first night at the hotel restaurant. Although we didn’t know it at the time, staying at the hotel entitles you to a 20% discount off of the entrees.

We started with two salads. My wife ordered the Green Goddess salad while I opted for the Wedge. Both salads were quite large portions and neither of us finished them.

For our entrees, my wife ordered the lamb chops “medium well”. I chose the Delmonico steak, “medium”, along with a side of Brussels sprouts.
The lamb chops arrived well below medium. I’m not sure if this was the chef’s definition of medium well, or if the instructions didn’t get communicated to the kitchen. My wife sent it back immediately and requested it be cooked a little longer. It arrived a few minutes later and was cooked to her satisfaction.
My steak was cooked medium and was fine.

For dessert we shared bananas foster. It was delicious.

Service was excellent from all concerned.

A wonderful experience with the service — our wait person Allie was absolutely outstanding. The lighting in the restaurant was quite romantic and well done. A nice selection of scotch and whiskey. The fish was extremely over cooked. The lentils did nothing for the dish—seemed like a boring inexpensive option to fill the plate. The menu overall was not that exciting or creative. For such a small menu and the restaurant not being too busy — the kitchen/chef should have been able to execute more polished and delicious meal.

We took advantage of the summer special - shared appetizer, two entrées and a shared dessert. The chef showed flexibility in accommodating my food allergies. The quality and the presentation of the food was outstanding, as was the service. All in all, a perfect meal.

Nobody was there to check us in, so an hotel desk clerk had to find someone. When she came, I told her we needed to be checked in on Open Table and she said she would, but she never did. I had to prove that I was at that restaurant because of bad service. However, the waitress was good and the food was good.

When I made a reservation at least 3-4 days in advanced I told the person taking reservations that we were celebrating a birthday. We were having brunch on A Sunday. The foods was great but we were disappointed that there was no mention of the Birthday. Our waitress never asked who was celebrating even though the hostess asked me who’s birthday it was. We did not get a free mimosa or a dessert with a candle. Both of which I was informed of when making a reservation. Also told there would be a Happy Birthday sign on the table. At the end of our meal when we had already gotten the check nothing was mentioned so I checked with the hostess and she went to talk to our waitress...she didn’t come so we left. Needless to say we were very disappointed. That was our celebration for my daughter’s birthday and it ended up being just a regular morning brunch.

It was my 1st time eating here. I think they have some unrealized potential regarding their menu ingredients. The descriptions sounded mouthwatering, and it was good, but I expected a bit more (namely, maybe some hand cut breakfast potatoes instead of precut frozen ones). Similarly, my friend had tater tots in their brunch meal too.
Server was fantastic & beer was great too.

Inside or Outside seating. Can't believe they allow dogs outside. Tables are close looked like a Kennel Club on Sidewalk.

We went to a business casual dinner here and we were blown away! The food was absolutely incredible, we had the chef grouper special and a few other seafood options - all fantastic! The wine list was amazing and could definitely fit any budget. It was our first time and definitely not our last!

We went for the summer meal deal which is what the meal should cost normally. We had not been in a year and knew there were some changes. Our table did not order the most expensive appetizer or dessert. Unfortunately my husband was unable to order the 33.00 scallop and grits entree as it was 1.00 more than the max 32.00 entree. Again, 1.00 more which we offered to pay for. My salmon had no flavor and too much sauce. It was extremely loud and overall just a very disappointing experience. We are St Pete residents and love eating downtown. We will not be making a repeat visit to this restaurant. At one time it was one of our favorites. One suggestion, less portion with better presentation.
