I go here all the time. It's one of my favs for sure. If you go there you must try the Bone In Rib Eye. It's awesome! Service is always great and the food is spot on every time. I go here a lot. It's a great place to meet a client for lunch or meet friends after work.

Coordinated a dinner here with 10 of my business partners. We had a large table in the open part of the restaurant although private dining is available. Menu was excellent with a variety of beef and seafood options. I chose the blacked seabass which was outstanding with a great presentation. Wine list was good and reasonable as well. Although the...

Pleasantly surprised to discover this restaurant although based on the crowds I was alone in not knowing about this place. The service was good. We were promptly seated close to our reservation time. I ordered the blackened rib eye and it was amazing. Just the right combination of fat and meat. I also had crab cakes and clam chowder. All... More

I had dinner here tonight and although I enjoyed the starter, steak and dessert it didn't really live up to most of the reviews here. It was above average for sure, but not fantastic by any means, and at the prices it really needs to be considerably above average. It is a nice place though, busy and lively and the... More

Thursday night is very busy. They have plenty of tables. Most clientele are business casual. Long list of wines, beers, and cocktails. The Kale salad is very unique and tasty. Large size filet mignon. Scallops are four servings on a tray. Recommend for deal making, treating customers and after-work drink.

This was the best filet I've ever had. Perfect in every way. It's expensive and the sides I had were average. Super loud inside. But amazing steak.

Felt hungry in that business trip. The concierge recommended it as "the best steakhouse in the 5 minutes perimeter". He was right, about the perimeter and about the place. Noisy like an Italian family, grilled artichoke close to the one I get in Rome and a superb NY Steak. Perfect, on that perimeter..

I had a business meal with three colleagues. I made a reservation online at 11:45. When we went there, the restaurant was almost empty. Despite this, we had to wait for a few minutes to be seated. The restaurant got full in half an hour. I ordered pasta paella, which was pretty good. I requested the receipt online and received... More

Saturday evening I was looking for a place to dine not far from my hotel. I gave this restaurant chance and did not regret. Thankfully on Saturday evening the parking around the business center was nearly deserted and I left my car not far from the restaurant’s entrance. I was met at the door and shown to a table. There... More

I have been to Birk's for business lunches as well as romantic dinners over the years and always go home happy. The restaurant is near Intel headquarter, visible from Highway 101 right next to a few tall buildings but one has to exit at either Great America or Montague/San Tomas to get there. In the most recent visit our party... More
