Good Locals Steak & Seafood Place

I have been coming to Birks for over 20 years. It's good for a business lunch or for dinner if you want beef or seafood. I like the steak salad & the prime rib. The servers can get you in & out of here in 1 hour. Also its near the 49ers training camp. I remember one in time in... read more

Birk's has been around for awhile and is one of the upscale places to go for Business Lunch or Dinner. They have a nice upscale ambiance and does tend to be a bit pricey, but the food is usually always very good, and they also have a nice menu selection of appetizers as well. My favorite is the bagel bread... More

In town for work and we decided to find a good steak house. To start, the atmosphere is fabulous. They have inside and outside seating and a nice bar area. We sat outside and it was a great evening to be outside. Service was excellent. Great drink selection, our table had bourbon, Manhattan and locally brewed beer. They brought out... More

This is in the heart of Silicon Valley, and we went her for a birthday lunch. We were asked if we had reservations, and because we didn't we were treated abominably. Needless to say, we have never returned. In addition, the wait staff is arrorgant.

We went for my grandson's 21st birthday, and he was willing to go with family instead of friends for "the beef." It did not disappoint. We had wood-fired prime rib, which I had never had before, and it was flavorful and so tender, and also two had New York steaks and my daughter had the lobster, which was surprisingly large... More

Went here on a business dinner with lots of people. Everything was as you would expect in a top notch steak house. The bar is set high here and they met it. Highlights -- great onion rings. Good seafood platter (oysters especially noteworthy). My "grilled" prime rib was perfectly done. Medium rare than than flash grilled to get a little... More

Not many options for vegetarians. Tried the grilled artichoke was not very good. The grilled portobella mushroom dish was good.

I had a leaf salad starter and a perfectly cooked filet mignon with simple sides of mashed potatoes and spinach with a lovely glass of wine. The waiter was very pleasant. The water unfortunately came in a broken glass, which the waiter promptly replaced. The location of the restaurant is convenient for the guests of neighbouring hotels, though far from... More

The food, especially the steaks, and service were first rate, and the price for the meal was quite reasonable. The only negative was that it was a bit noisy and difficult to carry on a conversation at the dinner table at times.
