    Outside seating is fantastic. Servers were attentive and helpful. Baked Brie appetizer was the star! Fish tacos were average, lacking spice/flavor. I would definitely go again for drinks and appetizers.

    Truly disappointing from the smell of garbage (seated by the garbage cans) to the menu offerings. The food was just OK. I have been to the Birch dozens of times and this incidence was underwhelming.

    We had a delicious dinner tonight. We had a bottle of wine on our last visit that was no longer on the menu. Described it to our server Dillon and he went to see if it was in the wine shop. It was and he put it on ice immediately for us. Dillon was very busy waiting on many tables, but he never missed a beat spending time at our table and taking care of us.

    Four septuagenarian friends went out on a Saturday night to a place they’ve been trying to book a reservation for a while. They love the quaint atmosphere and could tell there were many regulars at the bar. The wine selection was a bit snooty with no semi-sweet or sweet wines available. The reisling was the driest they ever encountered. The menu is quite eclectic and interesting. The four friends each chose something different. Best of all was the Shrimp and Grits. Not your Mama’s grits. They were fluffy and seasoned with sweet curry sauce. Second were the crab-cakes, full of yummy crab meat with remoulade sauce on the side. Third was the salmon pita sandwich, like a good salmon salad. Four was the very disappointing Cola Braised Ribs. 4 little rib pieces that were charred black with maybe 2 bites of edible meat sitting on a 1/2 cup of cole slaw. Our waitress was way overworked, I know, I know. Not the best dinner ever but 1 or 2 of the friends might return. It would be helpful if the menu in Google was what they had to serve.

    Great little restaurant in Terrace Park. I had the coconut shrimp and grits which were amazing. Great combo of flavors. We also tried the chicken kabobs and the brie and spelt sandwich which were both delicious. The White Squirrel cocktail was refreshing and our server was excellent. We will definitely be returning!

    The Birch is one of our favorites. Traditional offerings but with a unique twist that never disappoints. A smaller menu means the items are prepared with care, but a big enough variety to offer something for everyone.The staff is always attentive and friendly. Would highly recommend this neighborhood gem.

    We got there early when the restaurant was pretty near empty. We had a reservation Unfortunately, the sun was shining in our eyes and the window had no shades. There were numerous other decent tables empty we pointed out, but the host refused our request for a couple of empty tables we pointed out, and moved us to one right next to the front door which intruded on our space every time it opened. The food was good and table service fine, but our evening was ruined by the door

    The Birch was a lovely tucked away restaurant in Terrace Park. Love that it is Xavier alumni owned. We sat outside and there is a large tree and lots of ants that fell on both of our heads and crawled on the table. The outdoor seating was nice though and it felt intimate. The drink selection was nice but there are no sweet wines or ciders. The food was good but the pork belly sandwich was a little dry and hard to chew. The salads seemed over priced as well especially if you just wanna add chicken it’s around $20. Over all I would go back but I would try something different. They’re menu changes every so many months.

    My husband and I went for a Saturday lunch and it wasn’t busy. Tables were a little too close for my comfort (only due to being able to hear those around you, not because of COVID) but I did enjoy the ambiance of the place as well as the food. Having more of the food made in house would bring it up a notch though. But pretty good and I would bring others here too!

    Very disappointing. We went to Birtch restaurant upon reading Cinci Inquirer’s review. Totally disappointed. The only soup they had was a veg,, not much flavor to it. Totally veg., no meat whatsoever. I had the Caramel Apple Salad. Don’t know where the Caramel was suppose to be. Apples were plain Granny Green Apples, cut match stick size. Romain Lettuce were huge and cut horizontally. For a small person, it was difficult to manage. The pieces are so big it hang out of the mouth like a goat. My husband had the Bacon Wrapped Grilled Brie with Fig Jam, with Pecan and smoke Bacon. It also came with a nice warm banquette. This dish was interesting, and tasty. But, he also ordered the Mississippi Pork Roast. This thing was so SALTY, it was not edible. Too bad he did not sent I back to the kitchen. I brought it home for our neighborhood wild foxes to enjoy. I do not understand why any one would put so much salt in their cooking. Putting so much salt is not only unhealthy, there is no way to remedy it. Why can’t cooks understand that people can always add more salt if they wanted to, but NOT the other way.

    Decent but limited menu. Food is always good even if not great. The burger is exceptional—vastly improved by a wonderful sauce. My main objection is that the owners seem indifferent. We’ve been semi-regulars for a few years and we barely get acknowledged. Not asking to be best friends, but even “nice to see you back” would be something.
