The restaurant is a bit pricey, but the food and the service are excellent. We had spicy French fries, mussels and flatbread topped with pears and bleu cheese. All were excellent. The wine list is extensive and by-the-glass is reasonably priced. Our server was efficient and friendly. We plan to go again.
Very nice Mother's Day Brunch. Open, airy space. Nice music. Good was very tasty. Definitely recommend.
I have to say I was really disappointed in the food and the fact that there was no advertised pricing for Mothers Day Brunch. The only cost I saw on their website was $15 for adults and $5 for kids. No one said differently. We realized after we got our bill that it was $25 per adult and $11 for kids. So not worth $25. False advertising since no where did it say what the costs would be. We spent almost $100 more than we were anticipating. If the food was fantastic I would maybe give it a pass but the food was so cold, eggs and hash browns cold. Bacon over cooked and choices were very limited. Didn't even have a friends toast or pancake option. I will say the hostess was great and so was our waitress Jessica. I called to ask about pricing and after 30 minutes of being hung up on twice and on hold I finally got a call from a manger who said that someone would call back Monday or Tuesday.
I took my mom here for Mother's Day brunch and it definitely was not worth what we payed for it. If you're looking for a place to possibly grab drinks then I would say give this place a shot, but the food isn't that great.
We booked Easter Brunch. The ambiance was fair to poor because they had a low turnout (probably the 169 construction) and they set it up in a ballroom. That was the most-space between tables at an Easter brunch (ever). We were at the far end from the serving staff and it decreased the attention we received. The food was good to very good. One nit was the serving of spiral cut ham. If you plan to set-up a carving station, I think you should "carve". We've had Easter brunch in several to many places. Our top pick (the Northland Inn Easter brunch circa 2005) is still the standard for our family. Alas, the Northland was sold and the brunch not the same.
The food was excellent, but the service was terrible. They also lost our reservation. So we weren't seated in the restaurant and had to sit in the bar.
Food was expensive and service/food was SO slow. We were there for a 92nd birthday, it was very disappointing.
It was a nice surprise to have a dinner at Blue Birch. The food was delicious and a good value. A new chef deserves kudos!
I met with a long time friend to "catch up" and the atmosphere was perfect. The staff was attentive.... we took a long time to get ready to order and they were great about checking with us but without us feeling pressured. The chef had just baked fresh bread and came to our table to ask if we'd like to sample.
The restaurant had such great sound attenuation.... we could not hear anyone else! Very enjoyable and perfect upscale feel but still inviting!
I am not sure what they are trying to accomplish as a restaurant here. If I am paying over a hundred dollars for dinner for 2 I don't expect my waiter to be wearing jeans or kids to be running through the place. The food was terrible with the exception of the wild rice soup.
The service was slow but very friendly, expect an hour or hour and a half visit. Beautiful food options and unique menu, but mostly all menu items require an acquired taste. I suggest asking questions and reviewing the menu before visiting, and to go when you are not in a rush. Overall very good experience and friendly waiter! I would recommend this place! Warm and comfortable ambience.
My friends and I go to a restaurant every month that we have never tried. This month was Blue Birch.
We always share everything do we get a little bite of everything. We had the short ribs that were very tender, cauliflower that has an Indian food flavor which zip did not enjoy but my friends did, French fries that were sugary and salty so yummy and a flatbread with walnuts blue cheese and pear very good! We sat by the fire very enjoyable evening. Our waitress Jess was wonderful
Had breakfast with a business collegue. Food OK. Nicely decorated restaurant. Service is the downside. Not well organized or effective but managed to get the job done. Nothing special on any count.
Short ribs were tender and tasty
If you are staying in the hotel, this is a good restaurant to just pop down for a meal.
Fabulous. The food was superb and would pass any foodie's test, the presentation was delightful, the service was personal and attentive. Hats off to Chef Seth and servers Jessica and Carlos. From a person who is rarely completely satisfied, this is honest praise.
A private lunch in a beautiful location! Delicious food & great choices.
