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

It took a lot of time to decide. Many combinations to choose from. They make several special dishes. Their vanilla lemonade Is especially refreshing. having parmesan on the table was appreciated

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.

Prix fixe menu, 3 courses for $45. Prime rib was the superstar, generous portion, perfectly cooked. Must ask for anchovies on the Caesar! Surf and turf also excellent. Ambience and service both very good. Wine list excellent & reasonably priced compared to retail. Desserts were good but a notch shy of the other courses. My 4th time there, but first... More

Their steaks is very good, I ordered a Filet mignon and my colleague had a New York Strip steak. Both steaks were cooked as ordered, the side dishes are also good and can easily be shared. Service was also friendly, and efficient. Overall a very good meal, a much better option than the larger chains like Morton's and Capital Grill.

Food was great and Lorenzo, our server, is the best. I had lamb cooked to perfection and my co-worker had the filet. Wow. What a great place. Business or social, Birk's is a place that does not disappoint.

Although the place gets a little noisy - Birk's has always been a staple place for a business lunch or get together with friends. Their steak bites and truffle fries are among my favorites, and you have to try their dessert sampler. It's a bit on the pricey side but the food is fabulous!

Dinner ordered - mixed green salad, blackened prime rib, baked potato with cheese, lobster, crab and broccoli. Salad ordinary, prime rib maybe 1/4 inch thick at best, bake potato served cold and it was not even a good combo of flavors and broccoli was also cold and under cooked. DON'T go here. It's a waste of money. Crummy bathrooms. Go... More
