We were hoping for Prim Rib but it’s only offered for dinner. Rib eye was overcooked to what we ordered, hence the rating of ok.
Server never acknowledged when we thanked her each time.

We travel 3 hours to watch the 49er games, this is a great place to go after the game for a great meal. Close to the stadium. All of our meals were delicious and our server was awesome.

Given the amount of crowd for Thanksgiving, the time from reservation time to seating was about 30 mins. Unfortunately they ran out of food and we were served 2 dishes that were overcooked and took a very long time to get it. It seems the kitchen did not notify server of problem so we were not advised and in the end we waited a very long time to finally eat. Management was accommodating to our plight and handled the problem to some satisfaction.

Birk's has always been a favorite, Thanksgiving can be hectic, but their crew handled it like pros. The table and room were really noisy, some rooms are worse than others there, it's the luck of the draw on Thanksgiving. Grateful for all those who worked to serve us. Drinks, food & dessert were all Yummy!

Thanksgiving Dinner, so of course the noise level was higher than it would usually be, as it was very full house! Prime rib was excellent, creamed spinach not so much. Very tiny crème brûlée. Service and friendliness was fantastic. Will go back on a normal day.

Birks is very noisy. Certainly not a place for a romantic lunch/dinner. The open kitchen makes it almost impossible to visit with people across the table. The food was just mediocre for the price.

Great service. The rib-eye was served with the wrong side and when it came back it was over cooked and while flavorful it was a little dry (ordered medium-rare, came out medium +)

I had the vegetable pasta because I try to eat vegetarian at lunch. It was good, but the sauce could have had some more pizzazz. My husband had the burger. It was big and looked good. The accompanying French fries were pretty good too. The service was good, and the bread was good.

This place is great. EXCELLENT service. The food took a bit longer to arrive than we're used to, but it was worth the wait. Delicious prime rib, and a decent value. Wine pours are generous. Overall a great experience.

The service was absolutely terrible. I will not be returning. The food was good for the most part, but the service combined with ambiance was not worth the price at all. The building is under major construction. We had to walk through a long plywood plank walkway and construction zone to get to the restaurant.

The surrounding buildings are being worked on, so there’s construction in the walk way area to the restaurant. You can dine outside, but it’s in the parking lot which is quite away front the restaurant entrance.

It was slow service at the beginning when we were seated. Our water didn’t welcome us. We didn’t know who our waiter was ans neither did other workers. Since we waited for awhile the manager came to apologize and took care of us by providing complimentary appetizers and a glass of wine. The bread was warm and the food was delicious. we would recommend this restaurant.

Outstanding food and service. I took my son here for his 15th birthday so he would know what a "good steak dinner" tasted like, worth every penny, and he enjoyed the clam chowder and his first tastes of shrimp and prime rib!

Amazing food and drink.
This is a hidden gem that isn’t downtown. So you won’t have to fight for a parking spot.
