The food is excellent and the staff is so friendly and helpful! The prices are a little bit on the higher side for this kind of restaurant but it's the perfect date night spot for a solid meal and glass of wine. We will be back!

We sat outside in a beautiful courtyard. We ordered the special, it was pork tacos, they were just ok. But the apps and drinks were good.

Dinner was great. Charcuterie was an excellent start to the evening. Entrees were delicious and came out very quickly. Restaurant is very well set up for Covid requirements, felt very safe and spaced out. We've also done carryout from the Birch which works very nicely as well!

Sum it up with “not accommodating”. We are first time customers with reservations. We were seated at the worst table next to the bathrooms. Asked to be moved to a nicer location but were denied as tables unavailable. Those unavailable tables were available during our entire dinner...hummm. We spend a lot of money dining out, but not here again. Disappointed.

This was my first trip to The Birch but was for a birthday lunch. We had the grilled romaine salad which was very good, and the crab cakes were good but rather small portion size of two cakes.

Prices are comparable to other restaurants. The service was a bit slow and we were the first reservation time of the day - 12 noon. I had to find the waiter for my check and water was never refilled. A bottle on the table would have helped. I must add that it was a beautiful sunny Saturday in March so lots of people came to sit outside which I don’t think made the service easy.

Will definitely return.

First time visiting. Food was amazing. We had to continue to ask for refills of our drinks and wine. We would have gotten more wine had the waiter checked on us. We had reservations at 6pm. After being seated and given water it was a long wait for the waiter to return to take our order. Once we got our food (which was amazing) he hardly came back to the table. When he finally returned I went to order another dish and and more wine and was told by the waiter that the table had another reservation at 7:30 (this was at 6:50pm). I felt like 40 minutes was plenty of time to spend more money and found it very unprofessional for the waiter to mention the time. Once the second dish came back we never saw him again until he brought the check at 7:20pm. We could have had multiple glasses of wine in this time frame. I felt the service was less to be desirable.

Nice surprise! Loved the option to choose your wine (nice selections). from their rack and pay a corkage fee - a much better value than ordering a bottle of wine from the menu. Casual, upscale spot with attentive staff and excellent food. We will be back!

Food was average at best. Very limited menu. Service was not good at all. After our food was delivered we didn't see our waitress again. I had to walk up to the bar to get drink refills.

We really enjoyed the Birch. We ate inside this time and it’s such a cute place. We like to share several plates and their nightly tacos are always good. You have the option of grabbing a bottle of wine off their wine wall!

The Birch never disappoints- from the beverages to the small bites to something a little more hardy, the menu offers tasty twists on the traditional. Service is always outstanding.

We had a few different people wait on our table so I cannot point out any 1 person like I usually do !
Menu is small.
I had the half portion quinoa jerk bowl with grilled chicken--- very tasty and plentiful.
The Brussels sprouts were a little undercooked--- my bumped up sprouts is more tasty!
Cocktails--- nothing special.
We sat inside since my companions thought outside was too cool.
A bit noisy inside with hard wood floors.
I would go back and try again, sit outside in cute courtyard.
A bit pricey for what you got !

Loved The Birch. It was a cool night for a dinner date outside. But, so enjoyable on the cute little patio with firepit to stay warm. Excellent food and service. The pea soup doesn't photograph well, 😉 however, to eat... delicious. And, the Bruschetta...yum. Definitely try the Cuban Panini and Turkey Bacon Reuben. 😋🧡

The Birch is the best little place for a cozy supper or lunch. Thursday evening six of us took the leisurely ride to Terrace Park for a wonderful evening of drink, supper, dessert and laughter. My friends were new to The Birch but I am sure we all will return soon. My husband and I love the place. And for lunch it has been wonderful for a fun meeting with friends.
