Great place for drinks, wine, appetizer and dinner. Conversation can be difficult though because it's noisy inside. There's good parking. Outdoor seating available. Wine menu is limited. The steaks were cooked perfectly. Seafood pasta paella is delicious even though it's a bit salty. The ahi appetizer is good but the soba server with it was slightly undercooked. Service was very...

What a great place for lunch. A varied menu, great quality ingredients, good service at decent prices - while the Calamari was a touch bland and oiley, I really enjoyed Birks and highly recommend the Filet and Blue Sandwich. Piping hot on a scoured baguette, with onions, garlic and blue cheese, along with a generous portion of perfectly seared and... More

Very good. I had the sea bass and was very pleased. My guest had the filet and was pleased as well. Service was great from our waiter. The atmosphere can vary depending where you sit. As you come in to the left is probably the quitest but very stale/ dull. In the center by the bar louder but better atmosphere... More

Prime rib was excellent, service ok but they put me on a table at the bar as I was by myself, it would be better to get a proper table.

This place is always busy with a vibrant crowd. A bit pricy but decent steaks in a convenient location. Can be noisy in some areas. Good bar with some tasty drinks.

Reserved here using OpenTable and requested a "quiet" table for my Japanese dinner guest so we could understand each other. Birk's set us up in exactly the area that I hoped they would and they accommodated a last minute adjustment from a party of 5 to 6 with no issue. The staff was friendly and the meal was great. You...

Had a business meal with colleagues here and it was great! The blue cheese filet mignon was cooked to perfection but the stand out dish was the tuna...just melted in my mouth....WOW!!! Bit pricey but go visit.

A solid American steakhouse with good service. Had the Surf & Turf, $42, well prepared and presented. Nice quiet relaxed atmosphere. The kind of place you can rely on for a no frills serious meal - ideal for business.

I went there for lunch with two of my colleagues from the North East. I ordered a open burger and a New England Clam Chowder. The soup was pretty authentic, considering it was made far from Boston. The meat was juicy and tasty.
