EXCELLENT menu and the food was delicious. Very cute courtyard with bar and coffee bar. We ended up ordering 'take out' and eating it in the courtyard as the wait was almost 2 hours for brunch. We didn't have a reservation and arrived at a bad time on a holiday weekend so it was our own fault. The wait staff... More

Tasteful and very busy. Amazing Pisco Sours at bar. Food a bit arugala heavy but good atmosphere. Definitely one of the cooler places in palms springs.

Very trendy. Service excellent and the food choices unusual with a flair and great fun. It can be a bit noisy and we felt that we may have been "moved along" for the massive line up to get in.

We've been there a few times and always love it. I recommend making a reservation in advance because it's very busy in high season. The vegetable side dishes of Brussels sprouts and cauliflower are delicious and we love their pizzas. Most side dishes and pizzas can be shared unless you're ravenous, in which case, you can eat a whole pizza!

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
