Great place and tasty food. A bit out of the way but worth the search. Had the butter lettuce salad, clam chowder, peppered filet mignon, T-bone steak, and key lime pie. All were solid dishes. Would definitely return. They were especially thoughtful about the birthday we were celebrating.

I was having dinner with a business colleague. Our steaks came together. Mine was way overcooked so I sent it back. It then took 25 mins to get my meal. Our server basically ignored us for the entire time. My colleague was polite and waited for me so his meal was essentially cold. I was forced to get up from my table and chase down a server.
A manager delivered my meal and was extremely apologetic. I wasn't charged for my meal and they gave me a gift card for a future visit (which I proceeded to leave at the restaurant...my fault of course).
I know things don't always go as they should, but what happened was unacceptable for a restaurant of this caliber. I think it'll be a while before I go back.

We had delicious meal to celebrate our Anniversary. In hind-sight, we should have realized how crowded Birk's would end up being on a weeknight. (The last time we were there was a weekend and there were no large groups anywhere near us, so it was quite quiet.) The host sat us in an area that was "quieter" than the original area he started taking us to; however after the two large groups were seated in the same area, it became rather loud. Our dinners were very good and the service was very nice. We were surprised by the dessert sampler our waiter brought at the end of the meal. We will definitely be back to Birk's, most probably on a weekend!

I have been to Birk's several times and was not disappointed. The 16 oz blacked rib eye steak was super. Wait staff were excellent. My friends from out of state were impressed.

Ordered the bone in Rib Eye, was brought prime rib instead which was sent back. Waited 10 minutes while the others in the party ate. Was offered a salad but turned down, no further compensation was offered. Expected something more from a restaurant of this caliber and status. I am a regular of this restaurant, visiting every time I’m in the Bay Area, May need to find a new go to steak place as I did not feel like a valued guest on this occasion and mix up.

This place used to be “something” back in the day but it has really gone down hill. Loud, slow service, sub par food. No offense, but won’t be going back.

Birk’s is a Silicon Valley classic business lunch spot. We were tempted by the full bar. But now days cocktails are not cool with lunch. Maybe if everyone had one it would be okay. A nice place for lunch

We have been coming to this spot for nearly 30 years. If those walls could talk...we are sure many exciting Silicon Valley business deals have been done at this spot. It hasn't changed much over the years. The pasta paella is just amazing.

Service was mediocre all around - and when tried to order latte with different milk the waiter answer was no when I knew they do have alternative - was just too lazy to find out and learn .... will try avoid dinning there moving forward esp with all the new options around ... Birks need to step it up or they will lose lots of the older clientele !!!! Starting with me !

Birk's is going down hill. I was there for a business dinner and the table next to me was short a wine glass so the waiter took it from my place setting. We all laughed on how rude that was but then the waiter service my customer his meal with a long hair sticking out of his mashed potatoes. We brought it to the waiter attention and he promptly took my customer knife, scooped out the hair and then put the knife back down. He was prepared to walk away but we asked him to replace the mashed potatoes ... and the knife he use to carve out the hair. I fully understand this can happen at a restaurant but I would have expected Birk's to handle it better. I have no intentions on going back since the Bay Area has so many better options available.

Overall a very good experience. All 4 of us enjoyed our meals and the service was solid. I thought the prices were a tad high vs. the quality of the food, but not over the top. We were there on a Sunday night so the place was not very crowded, as a result the noise level was moderate, that may not be the case on a Friday or Saturday. I'd recommend the place to others.

Excellent service and high quality food. Marco was our server. It was nice to see the award plaques for employees for recognizing high quality service. The filet was cooked perfectly. The only criticism I have is that they charge $6 for bernaise sauce.

Overall a very good restaurant. It's been quite awhile since we have been to Birks but the steaks were, as we remembered, excellent. Wine list was very good and we were served by someone knowledgeable on the various wines and years. We visited on a Saturday night so the restaurant was fairly quite with almost no one in the bar area. During the week Birks can be quite noisy with a crowded bar. The only drawback to the evening was the waiter, while very good and courteous, who kept trying to upcharge everything. This was the only drawback to the evening.
