I have been here several times for business dinners. This time was my worse experience. Nothing special about the food especially considering the price paid. Mashed potatoes were especially disappointing as they tasted more like instant than homemade. Steak was average. Service was good.

We had the calamari and crab cakes to start. Calamari great, crab cakes extremely disappointing. Worst I have had I regret to say. Then I had a salad wedge which was great followed by the filet which I ordered medium rare. It cam out well done and tasteless. Was in client company so didn't want to delay proceedings and ate...

Very raffinate restaurant, with top-quality food. Staff is awesome. Prices are very high but in line with the rank of the service. The place is always crowded, so the reservation is recommended.

Restaurant was packed. So the table for 4 taht we had in the middle of the room was a little uncomfy and tiny. Appetizers were good. I can recommend the Calamari... tender and flavorful. The bottle of Cab was good as well. The rest was a mixed bag: The blackened rib-eye was blackened and prepared en point. That was good.... More

I've eaten at Birks many times over the past 20 years and have rarely been disappointed - until now. My wife accompanied me on a business trip so I told her we'd go to one of my favourite restaurants in the area. We arrived and were greatly warmly and promptly seated. It then took us about 10 minutes to get... More

Very good place. Warm environment which can go from semi-formal to formal. You must have the meat, filet is tender and properly cooked. The service is quite good as well.

Looking for a decent lunch close by office. Went to Birks. Was told everything is amazing. WELL it isn't all that. Price for a steak, $46 for a New York cut... Taste wasn't any better than any other steak house selling the New York for $15. If you want Steak, go somewhere else. Unless you like throwing your money away.

After a long work day on the road, I wanted to treat myself to a nice meal that wasn't a hotel restaurant. In that area of Santa Clara, it's very hard to find. Birk's is located on the ground floor of an office complex, around the back. I missed it the first time looking for it, but there is a... More

I was staying at the Embassy Suites in Santa Clara with my son for college tours. {Santa Clara U and San Jose State}. Wanted something nearby that could fill up my 17 year old after an 8 hour drive. (I'm STARVING, Mom!). Read the reviews here, so gave it a try. It's on the bottom floor of a business park,... More
