We visited Birks tonight because we were both in the mood for prime rib . usually one element stands out, but tonight we really lucked out. Also, the baked potato was done perfectly and the creamed spinach had excellent texture & was delish, with tiny pieces of bacon, to fit so we'll with the smokey flavors of the beef. This meal at Birks is quite pricey but if you're going out for prime rib at this restaurant at least you will get great value for the hefty price!

Birk's is always my go-to restaurant for business lunches and social dinners because of the great steaks and service. Our server Amy was exceptionally patient with us at lunch on Friday and significantly enhanced our dining experience with her high-quality attention and impeccable service. Much appreciated!

Food is not at the level of we can expect.
Steak and Lobster was badly set on plate. Enormous brocolis branch. Very poor size of steak.

Parking was in the back of the building. It looked like a service entrance due to a trash bin near the sign and entrance. When we entered, the smell was incredible and the place appeared very classy and upscale. The table for two that we got was near a register with a poor view and a lot of traffic. Food and wine were excellent. Service was excellent as well.

I hadn't been to Birk's for quite awhile and was pleasantly surprised that it was just how I remembered it. Great bar area, appetizers, and entrees! The service was on point from the hostess, our server, and bar tender. They were very attentive and accommodating! I'll definitely won't wait so long to go back!

Birk's is a go to for business meals in Santa Clara -- which is what this was. Our service was above par -- never asked for a thing and my water and wine glass was always filled. Food was great, and we had a person with shellfish allergies and they took great care to prepare all of food with that person's allergies in mind (we ordered shared appetizer and side dishes). I have been going to Birk's for a long time and they never disappoint. Highly recommend.

We have been to Birks several times and have never received a good table placement. Even though we have reservations. This time we were sat next to the noisy bar and the air conditioning was not working and I had my 90-year-old mother with us for a nice evening. We asked to be moved and they did so but the room we were placed was extremely noisy. The food is always excellent and the service good but I’m not sure if we’ll go back because for the kind of money spent we should have an overall excellent experience.

Food: Calamari was very good. Ordered RibEye med/rare, came out medium, cooked same throughout. DIdn't taste any seasoning, even salt or pepper. Disappointed. creamed spinach excellent. mixed veg medley bland. My guest had the seafood paella. was just so /so. didn't finish. JLohr reserve pinot was very good.
Service was very good.
AMbiance - Restaurant was hot indoors because of broken AC - no AC for two days. I felt sorry for kitchen staff. no problem, we ate outside where it was cooler. Outside seating very bland though, basically just tables and chairs. they have plenty of room for plants, small trees, lights.
Value - it's a premium priced place.
Don't eat steaks that often (more fish) so when I do I want a good one and based on prior experience thought I'd get one Wed nite.

It seemed as though the air conditioning was not on full blast. Restaurants are usually on the colder side and one needs to wear a light sweater. It was uncomfortably hot during the entire dinner. And the noise level was so loud that it was hard to hold a normal conversation without yelling across the table. The food was excellent and the service was superb.

We love Birk's. It is our go-to restaurant for special occasions, especially if we can celebrate them on a Sunday rather than during the much busier and noisier workweek. Our most recent visit was a Sunday to celebrate my husband's birthday with friends. Even though it definitely was not crowded, the service was slow. The waiter we had (and have had before with the same problem) brought a birthday dessert with a candle in it, which is a very nice perk of celebrating occasions here, but had not yet asked if anyone else wanted dessert before bringing it. The dessert wasn't anything my husband liked (he only wants chocolate!) so, as we usually do, he gave that dessert to one of our friends. At that point, we indicated we all would like dessert and ordered what we wanted. Unfortunately, as had happened before, another dessert was brought to our other friend; and the two of them were finished before my husband and I ever got ours. Also, the espressos we all ordered to go with our desserts lacked crema and were cold by the time my husband and I got our desserts. One final complaint (and I really don't usually complain!) is that the Brussels sprouts at Birk's that we absolutely rave about to everyone we know were terrible that night. They were dried out, hardly seasoned with very little bacon or cheese. We didn't eat them. This really was a disappointing dinner. Fortunately, that is a rare occurrence at Birk's.

Great place t see the inner working of Silicon Valley's diverse mix of "go-getters." The wait staff are attentive and pleasant. IMO, the food has declined in quality over the 2 decades I have been going there; but I put this down to economics: food and operating cost versus what a punter is prepared to pay.
