The salads here are as good as the entrees. The Caesar salad, spinach salad and kale salad all are must haves as are the Olive Oil Poached Shrimp appetizer and the side of Brussels sprouts. The house-made sorbets, also, are an excellent end to each outstanding meal. We never are disappointed in our meals or in the service provided by a top-notch wait staff.

For the price, the filet mignon was not mouth watering..kinda tough.
Other than that, the restaurant was just fine.

The food is ok, but this restaurant is way way overpriced. This restaurant is for business dining, for people who don’t care about the check amount. Seriously we had lunch for 4 people no alcohol, four soft drinks, two appetizers and 4 entries. $341. Insane

The food and service are always excellent.
The main part of the restaurant can be noisy to the point of making conversation difficult.
The side sections are much better.

Good food, a little pricey. Our son’s entree didn’t come with our brunch as the waffle maker broke, but they made it up by delivering another option at no charge (and still bringing the waffle later).

We decided to dine here again to celebrate my son 26th Birthday. Staff and hosted were warm and welcoming as always!

Amy our sever was very accommodating and very attentive. Especially when my son wanted a cheese burger for dinner even though it wasn’t on the menu. The rest of us ordered the wood smoked prime rib with mash potatoes and creamed spinach other family members ordered a filet mignon everything was very tasty and enjoyed it immensely!

Birk's was recommended by a local from the area. It was decent but not amazing. The appetizers we ordered were the fried calamari, it was all tentacles and too salty, the spinach artichoke dip was tasteless. The Sea Bass that was ordered, one plate looked great and the other the filet was broken up in pieces. It did not look appealing. My Lamb Shank was tasty but under seasoned. And the last disappointment was the very weak drinks. For the prices and us ordering premium Vodka, it should have been better. Overall experience was disappointing.

My wife begged me to recreate our dish the next day because she wanted to taste how it would taste if done right.

We had the Seabass main course. Boy did they really make sure the fish was dead, Any Form. of flakeness and juicyness was cooked out of this fish and the potato gnocchi were almost raw.

Birke's if you need training on how to cook Seabass correctly I more than happy to come in and train you.

Needsless to say I recreated the dish and I think the concept was marveless, they just dialed to have a chef that can execute. And not that the restaurant was full.

My only negative comment is the noise level - very loud and hard to talk over the noise.

One of the places that when you bring someone to say thanks they will realize you do appreciate them. The food is always really outstanding but so is the service. To say thanks to a coworker or anyone you want to enjoy a lovely relaxed meal with Birks is fantastic. Love now it’s on open table as that was previously the issue as can get too busy to get a reservation easily. Go for happy hour with coworkers you like. Stay for a meal you will love

We went to Birk's to celebrate our anniversary. We learned last visit to not go on a weekday! Way to busy and too loud during the week. Bonus on a weekend is the Americana dining option- soup or salad, main with sides, and dessert for $52-$56, depending on entree. Good value. Service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Very pleasant surprise when dessert arrived- sampler platter of 4 desserts!
We will definitely go back on a weekend!

We have been going to Birk's about once a month for 7 years. We went in last weekend and were very disappointed. The food quality was good, as it always is, but the prices were jacked up and the quantity of food was paired down. Sad to see the changes.

We are and will remain advocates for Birk's as always a wonderful experience overall. We've been regulars for over 7 years now. This last experience we were a bit disappointed with the service as it felt like we were being rushed thru our dining experience. We noted the restaurant (Saturday) was not very busy, so suspect the staff were focused on getting us out as early as possible so they could go home early. Not sure, but that was what we felt. They were still attentive and overall a good team, just would caution them to be mindful of attempting to remove plates before diners are finished, and rushing diners thru the process, etc.
