The Birch - In Terrace Park
*Parties of 5 or more, please call the restaurant to reserve your table.
Friendly server. Unique menu.
Service was great and it’s a really cool little place. Food is limited but really like the wine list. Will definitely go back!
Always great at The Birch!!
Our server is the best she is always friendly, patient and fun to talk with. So sorry I can’t remember her name my two girlfriends and I enjoyed our afternoon lunch with some delicious Sauvignon wine from New Zealand. The Birch never fails to deliver.
Enjoyed our evening out on the patio. Very accommodating due to our lateness. Even offered us water while we waited!
Food and service were fantastic. Beer and wine selections very good. Outside tables made the whole dining experience very enjoyable. Will definitely go back.
Totally wonderful evening, the food, service and outdoor area were all perfect!
We had a wonderful experience at The Birch. We ate outside in the beautiful courtyard area. Service was excellent and everyone who attended our table as friendly and personable. Food was amazing as well. I highly recommend eating here.
Great dining experience, small quaint hidden gem in Terrace Park!
Our service was horrible. I find that comical considering the restaurant could only seat to half capacity. We received our first course then our server disappeared. We later learned he was also the bartender. The food really wasn't great either...At least the few dishes we were able to order. Don't waste your time.
Outstanding food, wine, and service. One of our favorite restaurants. Love their menu!
Great dinner and dining experience as always!
Loved the patio dining. Love this place. Frose was awesome too!
The place is nice but the server was inattentive and it took over an hour from when we placed the order for our food until it arrived. The most disappointing part was that it was never acknowledged.
Ambiance is very good and server was excellent ! Food was okay wine list very diverse we enjoyed a pleasant evening outside.
It was an outstanding lunch with lovely outdoor seating.
Had brunch with my family on Sunday. We met at 12:30 hoping most of the crowd would have already met and moved on. The lack of soft surfaces meant that the rowdy group enjoying brunch at the bar echoed throughout the space, but who can blame them? The server was amazing and interacted very nicely with our 7 month old. All of our food was great and the chocolate chip cookie for dessert was excellent. Would go back again!
I have dined at The Birch a handful of times, and have never been disappointed. The menu is always changing and the service is always excellent. It's so close to home and yet a nice night out.
We were a table of four, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the wine and food. Great place...love the decor...service was excellent. Our reserved table was by the front door, so not the most favorable area due to people coming and going; and, next to the bar (and higher noise levels). Next time I will definitely request a table further back in the dining area. All in all, a very enjoyable evening!
Server was overbearing with non-stop interruptions pushing us to order items from the bar, she seemed unnerved that we weren’t ordering alcoholic beverages even though we were a party with children and had opted out of adult beverages that evening. The staff seemed to be disconnected changing the lighting up down up down up down, 3 - 4 times during our dinner, so distracting and taking away from our experience. Staff also keep moving the table set ups all around us which was quite disruptive in such a small area. Food was less than mediocre, flavorless and bland. No one in our party finish their unsatisfactory meal. The only positive I have of the experience is with the Open Table reservation we were greeted and seated right away and the bread which was ordered ala carte as a separate menu item was warm and fresh.
I don’t think I’ll plan to return and probably won’t recommend to others.
Went for Valentine's Day. Great dishes. Nice service. Very cool historic building. Would go again!
Great service and great food!
Both Chris and Beth were very helpful.
I tried the soup of the day, pork and cabbage stew and it was so very good. Highly recommend. The fingerling potatoes were so-so, I would slice them and prepare them more like a loaded baked potato skin. Two in our party ordered various salads, all looked fresh and generous portions. Def will return.
Really pretty spot. Eclectic menu. Nice wine selection. Almost impossible to carry on a conversation across the table as the ambient noise level was deafening.
We waited over 10 minutes after being seated to receive menus and water despite the manager that sat us walking by us multiple times and seeing that we had neither. Our server was not friendly, didn’t tell us any of the specials or explain what was on the charcuterie board she brought us. In her defense I believe she had tables in the other section of the restaurant at the same time. The host/manager should have been helping her out but he was seen standing at the bar doing nothing helpful for most of our visit. It was very loud in the restaurant as the ceilings are high and we had a large table seated to our right. The food was ok. Not bad, not great. Small portions for big prices. My pork skewer had three small bites of meat for $16. The outside patio looked nice. Perhaps in warmer weather I would stop for a glass of wine in the patio but not for food.
Great place... innovative food, good service, great ambiance.
I really like this experience. I would go back but the food is a bit pricey and they weren't willing to accommodate a meal based on my food allergy. That was a bit disappointing. I ended up ordering something that I didn't care for as much because of this. However, I would go back to try other items on the menu.
Excellent, friendly service, shiny clean. Ambience could be little]e warmer, nut it's a nice place and I suspect it's great outside in the summer. We thought the menu could be bigger - not a lot to choose from.
We’ve been four times. We like it and will continue to support it although it’s menu is limited and a few items need improving. The brisket sandwich needs help. We gave it three tries. Mostly, it’s a tough, dry hunk of meat on a bun. I could do better with a crockpot. Sorry. Don’t tell me “this brisket is firm.” Brisket should melt in your mouth after long, slow cooking. Other dishes are good. It’s a charming little bar and restaurant. The burger is delicious as are the loaded fingerling potatoes. Salads are excellent, too.
Love, love the Birch!!
Tasty food, excellence servic, nice ambience. A great Sunday Bruch.Worth the drive .
Excellent food and service as usual.
Can’t beat Chris and Andrew.
Perfect burger and a great glass of wine.
This restaurant was too loud. The waiter couldn't even hear what we wanted to order and had to move around the table to hear us. My food was too spicy and I only ate half of it. I ordered crab cakes. The tables are placed too close to each other and there are no noise buffers.
Server - great! Food - great! Host - stunk. As a customer you liked to be greeted with a smile when entering and thanked for your business when leaving. Neither occurred. Soured our experience.
Great little spot to grab a bite and a glass of wine.. super friendly service.. food was delicious.. we had the charcuterie tray, the veggie gyro and the pork and sauerkraut.. will go back!
The Birch is fantastic. Simple menu, but good food.
LOVED THE STAFF AND THE FOOD. WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!
Our second experience after stopping in when just opened (indifferent greeting turned us off). This time was great. Warm, friendly, attentive service and very good food. Short rib sandwich was not so tender meat but the hamburger was top shelf. Good salads, too. We’ll be back more often!
we'll be back for Chef Alex's food:):):)):):):):)):)
