The Birch - In Terrace Park
*Parties of 5 or more, please call the restaurant to reserve your table.
2nd time at this restaurant. Fantastic food great service. It was a beautiful evening so ate outside. Also great wine.
Perfectly done poached eggs on crab cakes. Crab cakes have minimal "stuff" added to them, and are really top notch. The hollandaise sauce is a perfect consistency, with just a touch of lemon for freshness. Home made bloody mary, and fresh squeezed OJ for mimosa. Atmosphere is romantic - a small house with an outdoor courtyard set away from the traffic. Quiet and peaceful for a Sunday morning brunch.
We have been to The Birch 4 or 5 times now and have loved the experience until this past visit on a Friday night. Service was slow due to a couple of large parties. Also the food was not as good as the other times we’ve been there. Did not care for the grilled romaine salad and the crab tacos were small. Pork belly was good as was the soup. We will definitely try again!
Great Wine tasting, cheese board and crab cakes.
It was the first time we had brunch and it was delicious!
The food was good and we had a really good time until we received the bill. I purchased a $37 bottle of wine and the bill had a $15 corkage fee. The waiter only had to unscrew the cap from the wine bottle! So now that wine cost over $50 and it was not worth it. The fee should not be that high and should be waived if you are eating there.
I was so excited to try this place, because I have purchased some wine there before that I was impressed with. Unfortunately, because of this outrageous corkage fee, I won't be coming back, nor will I tell my friends to go there.
Love this place but the food was just “ok” this time
Interesting and healthy
Great atmosphere! We sat outside and it was lovely. The food was light and delicious. A little gem in Terrace Park.
Good food with some healthy choices and very good attentive service. The outside courtyard is a very pleasant space. Often when we’ve been there, kids run around unsupervised inside and out in the courtyard while their parents socialize over wine and beer. That was at a minimum on our last trip there.
Ate outside it was a beautiful day and the food and service were amazing!
The service could not have been better! The bartender, super attentive and spot on with recommendations and pairing.
Went with my 5 year old son and wife. We had the charcuterie board, hummus and lump crab salad. All of the food was very good. We all enjoyed it, though our favorites differed. We had one mix up on the order, but it was resolved in a flash with no questions.
I was pleased to find an interesting mix of options that I can share with my family; son included. They made him feel very comfortable and many other well behaved children were there.
I will surely go back. The only real negative was that they did not accept my $25 OT Reward that I booked the reso with. OT quickly credited the points back to my account after contacting them.
An amazing night! We sat outside in the courtyard and enjoyed a great meal. The choices from the menu were ample and drink menu also offer good selections at fair prices. A new favorite for sure!!!
This was our first visit and based on our experience we will be back quickly. The beer cheese spread and bacon wrapped shrimp were excellent. A very delighted setting with excellent food and service.
I enjoyed The Birch. Nice little place, modern feel. The patio looked relaxing, though we ate inside. The door to the patio needs a blind. We had to keep scooting our table away from the sun as it set. Annoying. The service was mediocre. I appreciate not being pestered, but not getting basic service was annoying. The food was excellent, no doubt.
We loved The Birch! We will come back and tell all our friends about it too.
Great food for reasonable prices. Features indoor and outdoor eating choices. Contemporary setting, service is good without the feeling of being rushed through the dining experience.
Lovely setting in Terrace Park. Interesting menu - not overwhelming. Good spot for lunch or dinner.
Great staff and fun wine list. The food was good. It’s a little loud.
Everything was delicious as always!!
Great menu. Friendly service. Private room looks lovely!
The place was nearly empty when we arrived, and was completely full within 30 minutes. Very friendly staff. Food quality was excellent. Will go back.
My husband and I enjoy trying new restaurants on Friday nights after a full workweek. We alternate choosing restaurants and then rate each others choices; we call it our "game night" and distribute points accordingly. We have a few starting rules; reservations required; locally owned; relatively healthy; good wine selection and location (< 30 min from respective workplaces). While Birch met our criteria, we will not be dining at this restaurant again, despite the fact I drive past there 5 days a week. I met my husband at Birch, after he had spent the week in Denver on business (blizzard conditions, some meetings cancelled, he often travels) . The noise level was very high because there was a large party of Dads and daughters celebrating the Daddy/Daughter dance. I love children, especially highly spirited girls!! Go Girls!!! What I found disappointing was that the servers did not seem to adapt to the environment and we suffered the consequences. Were the girls asked to lower their voices? Were the girls asked not to run around the restaurant? Apparently not. We were not told the specials on the menu, we were served the wrong wine, second course arrived before we finished the first, thus felt rushed, while we were somewhat laughing about the exuberant girls, the servers were unapologetic. Will not return and I lost the game for that week.
Great location and great selection of food! Very good!! Will be back to try dinner!
Nice atmosphere, interesting variety of food, difficult with noise level....and just to know, it's mainly small plate food, appetizer....no real entrees, full meals to speak of, but if looking for small bites to share, it's great!!
Wonderful food and great atmosphere. My husband wanted to order a second bowl of soup...
Don’t pass up the opportunity to spend an evening here. The food was fantastic and the service a delight. Don’t live in the area? It doesn’t matter - make the drive and enjoy!
Our first time, and really enjoyed it! I am glad we tried it and found a new local dining hang out!
Cozy little restaurant in Terrace Park with fantastic food! Service was very good too! I would definitely come here again!
Really liked our waiter, food was terrific. Had the bean and ham soup and the grilled romaine salad. Both very good and filling. Liked the different draft beers too! We'll be back again soon
Very good portion sizes, came hungry and left full. Very friendly and customer conscious staff. The Steak and eggs were perfect. Look forward to trying the crab cake eggs benedict on next visit.
Only wish they served White Zinfandel! Food was great and service!
The food was delicious and unique menu items. Great shareable plates so we were able to try multiple items without overeating. Service was wonderful and wine selection good. Enjoyable evening!
This was my third time to dine here, and my dinner was excellent. I will be back.
My wife and I had an absolutely incredible experience at The Birch. Small plates were great and the salads were fresh. Good beer and wine selection too. Service was impeccable. Highly recommend.
