I've been going to Birks for years and it's always been a highlight with customers. Steaks are always prepared to order and great sides. Being from the east coast, I love exploring their wine list.

A really excellent restaurant in the Bay Area and very popular with all the local employees of companies. Steaks are very good and the overall menu is excellent. service is excellent . prices are not cheap but it is worth it

This is a high end steak restaurant with high prices. Nothing to complain about regarding food or service which were both first class. The 2 or 3 times I have been here it has always been really noisy so conversation tends to be shouted. There is plenty of parking but it takes a bit of effort to find this in... More

This is a nice upscale restaurant with excellent service. The food looks excellent but the prices are high. The atmosphere was nice. The scallops entree was exceptional but overpriced at $37 for three large scallops.

Birk's is a popular place where many people who work in Silicon Valley take guests to for a good surf and turf lunch or dinner. The food here is very good - you really can't go wrong - and the service is fantastic. A very good choice but it is expensive.

I ate here as part of a group business dinner with 8 people. Our server was awful, barely checked in with us at all and only got drink orders for 1/2 of the table. I was shocked when 1/2 of us had wine and I was like, um, no one asked me if I wanted a drink! So odd. We... More

We went for a business dinner - about a dozen of us were in attendance. They have a couple of separate, smaller dining rooms, so it's a relatively quiet place - it was wonderful to be able to have conversations during dinner. It would be nice for an intimate dinner for two also. We started out with a couple seafood... More

Birk's is a little challenging to locate, but with that it also gives it character as you walk in the sidewalk between two buildings, lit enough to feel safe l, but not as if on display. The food is a variety of dishes, with a price point aligned more with the cloth napkins instead of paper. Staff is professional and... More

The food at Birks is consistently amazingly good but the atmosphere is always loud. Especially true at lunch, dinners gave the same fate. Live the food, service us usually excellent but they need an ambience makeover desperately.

Thank Katherine B
