    Service was great. But it was some of the worst food. Even down to the water. We had to switch to bottled water. Clam chowder, prime rib, filet and all the sides were down right terrible. Stay away from those items.

    Nice place to dine. The reason I gave the restaurant a low mark on value and food is because I spent $41 for the Seabass, which was overcooked and not as flavorful as I would’ve liked it. Service was excellent and the ambience was pleasurable considering there was only one other family in the restaurant (at lunchtime, on a holiday.).

    We went to Birk's for my wife's birthday, we have dinner at Birk's frequent the service has always been great and so has the food. We have a few choices to pick from, but their calamari always wins me over and also when you mention on the reservation that it is your birthday they always bring you a dessert with a candle on it. It is that special touch that stay's stays with you. Last month I took my brother in-law out for his birthday to another restaurant across the freeway and I mentioned it that it was for a birthday on the reservation and nothing just the bill.

    What better place to grab a fine dinner after a 49er win. I've been patronizing Birk's for a very long time, and they never disappoint myself and my guests. They have a great selection of apps, meals, and wines. The service is impeccable, and the ambiance is very pleasant.

    1. The parking is the worst!! Rain and enough wind to almost blow me down walking to the restaurant. 2. I was cold throughout dinner - why keep the restaurant so cold patrons must wear a coat to have dinner? 3. The crab cakes have changed 😣 They were not nearly as good as in the distant past. 4. The wedge salad came with hard chunks of over-seasoned bacon…or maybe ham. Ugh 5. And, finally…the walk back through the wind tunnel to the car. We won’t be returning. 5. The blue cheese dressing was awful - I was glad I’d ordered it on the side. It has much too much garlic!

    Food and service were excellent; drinks were tasty, though overpriced. Our only complaint was that there was a crazy-cold draft blowing on us the entire meal. Had to wear our coats the whole time.

    All the food was very good except the calamari appetizer. It was bland but hot and crispy. We had the cheese plate, calamari and garlic fries for appetizers. Then lobster, steak and lamb. Lobster was very, very good. Steak was done perfectly. We also shared a mac and cheese. The dessert plate was just enough for the 4 of us. The restaurant is beautiful, service was outstanding. We plan to go again!
