Indoor & outdoor seating with mist blowers if it is hot. Very clean establishment. My wife's hamburger was yummy. My sweet potato hash with ground herb sausage with poached eggs was delightful.

Lovely atmosphere but that was about it. The service was very rushed and the pasta dishes two people in our group ordered had to be sent back. We couldn't figure out why our waitress was so focused on turning our table since there was no one waiting. The rest of our food was average at best. Won't return.

My husband and I went to Birba on a recommendation from friends and we were not disappointed. The outdoor seating really worked for us and added to the vibe of the place, it is obviously popuar as it was really busy with people waiting to be seated. I had made a reservation and even though we were late. They held... More

Went online to get an idea about this restaurant. The menu was completely different than what was posted. Also the online posting never mentioned they are only open Wed-Sun. We went back when they were open. What a mistake. Appetizers came out cold. Waitress could have cared less. Pizza was just average. The lighting is terrible. All outside seating. Not... More

The seating in Birba is entirely out of doors. While this can be good when the weather is perfect, it must be unbearable when the wind is blowing sand or the temperature is very low or high. I suspected trouble when we had to walk a very narrow crushed granite path between tables, trees and benches in order to be... More

It's always about the crust. Birba's pizza crusts are perfect. Light and crisp. Their pizzas include unusual toppings that work perfectly. Try the pear/arugula/pesto or the jalapeño/date. Service is a little slow, but worth the wait. It ruins me for other pizzas.

This pizza place is uber popular, but I have no idea why. We have lived in PS for 20 years and can't wait to go on vacation to find really exceptional restaurants. This valley is sorely in need of some. I guess that this is such a tourist destination that the food does not have to be that good because... More

We live in Palm Desert and decided to stop on our way home from LA, boy what a great find. We got a set at the bar right away. The drink menu is a lot of fun, interesting combinations. We shared the tricolor salad, super tasty and then split the sausage, mushroom, onion pizza. The ambiance is fun, great for... More

Terrible service.. waited 10 minutes until a waitress noticed we were at the hostess station. Was grumpily led to a table. A different waitress came by 10 minutes later to ask if we wanted a drink. At that rate, we decided we better order! They were out of two entee items and could only substitute spagheti for a pasta noodle.... More
