This is a fun place that has a good vibe, great music and an awesome outdoor venue-dining under the stars is very pleasurable. Walking in almost feels like you’ve been invited to special secret event. The staff are very friendly and the menu is Italian bistro. Now with all that said I did find it a bit noisy and difficult...

I loved this place! It's very popular & I can see why. The outside dining area is great-- very relaxed yet sophisticated at the same time. The pizzas were very good (comparable to Mozza in WeHo), the cocktails were also very good but could've been a bit stronger for their price point. We ordered the margherita pizza, sausage/mushroom/onion pizza, &... More

We ate at Birba twice during a recent stay in Palm Springs. The first evening the food was just mediocre. There was a big private party so maybe the kitchen was off. The pizza was bland, the meatballs luke warm and mealy, and the short ribs kind of tough. The bartenders were great. We decided to give it another try... More

Fairly new place with artisan pizzas and a meat selection of the day. Pizza was very good. All seating is outside at tables or the bar. A little too loungey and dark for reading a menu with small print by 1 candle. Unless you are a cat good with language I suppose. Service was fine.

We had dinner here on a Sunday night. We were excited to find such a fun place with a cool vibe on a Sunday. The drinks were good - the food just OK. We ordered the meatballs which were cold and had a weird texture. I ordered the ravioli which were good, but again needed to be hot not cold.... More

Having had brunch earlier at next door, (same owner), Cheeky's and being impressed, we knew early where we wanted to go for dinner that night... Birba. While the bar area is under cover, the whole place is open, and the seating area is exclusively outdoors amongst Palo Verde trees and inside a hedged wall shielding you from the street. This... More

Tasty food, great service, reasonable prices in an outdoor terrace. The staff are welcoming. We called and were told a table wouldn't be available for another hour and a quarter. So we chanced a walk up and got a table instantly. This restaurant is a great find.

Birba is an unusual restaurant. First off you need to go online to make your reservations on their own website and it's all in real time. If you cant find a table at the time you want for the size you want then it's already taken and try another time or size table. In our instance there was no table... More

See my review of adjacent Cheeky's, under common ownership. We tried this place several time when it first opened and then since, and we've had a disastrous experience each time. Ditto with out of town friends. We couldn't get waited on (apparently an ongoing problem), and when we did and the food arrived, we wished we hadn't succeeded at that... More

Outside seating beneath misters on a warmish night, we had one of the most delightful, sophisticated, creative meals in our dining experience. And the service was exceptional. The only attitude was a good attitude. First course was two small roasted heads of cauliflower that had been drenched in lemon juice and some olive oil and topped with parmesan, lemon zest... More
