“Truly top notch food and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We were staying at Birchfield Manor for the weekend and saw the menu for the restaurant posted upstairs. It looked delicious, but also pricey, so we were a little hesitant. We were here celebrating our 10 year anniversary, so we decided to splurge and give it a try Saturday night. I am so glad we did! They were able to accommodate us on very short notice and we were able to be seated down in the wine cellar.

I would HIGHLY recommend asking to be seated in the cellar. It is truly a dining experience like no other. It was so romantic and we were able to savor our food to the fullest. The first course was a duck and onion confit over grilled polenta and it was out of this world! I have never tasted anything so delicious. The melding of textures and flavors were just outstanding! It was SO good, I asked our server if I could have another course of this instead of a dessert. He checked with the chef, and he was happy to oblige.

For the main course, I had the prawn cakes and my husband had the puff pastry wrapped salmon. They were both wonderful as well. Cooked perfectly and the sauce pulled all the flavors together.

The service was also outstanding. It is rare to find professional servers who know what they are doing and how to treat guests.

If you are in Yakima and are looking for fine dining, Birchfield is definitely the place. The food is spectacular, the setting is romantic, and the service is top notch. We hope to be back someday!

“Dinning experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Don't let the Bed and Breakfast scare you away, Birchfield is a premier dinning experience. I have never had a more perfectly executed Rack of Lamb. Each of the courses complement the next. If you love food and wine, Birchfield Manor is a must!

“Special Dinner Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

If you are in the Yakima area and want a special dinner, go to Birchfield Manor. Be sure you have enough time to fully enjoy the four courses and you need a reservation. The salad was excellent. I had salmon in puff pastry and it was delicious. The pastry keeps it warm. They also had delicious beets which is such a departure from the normal vegetable you get in restaurants. The meal is finished with homemade chocolates. There are only three wines by the glass, none of which I liked, so that was a drawback. It is a little pricey, but worth it for a special occasion.

“a very special place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

Birchfield Manor is a very special place in Yakima. It is an old house that has been converted into a very small and intimate dining experience. You are essentially eating in a living room/dinning room/sitting room of an old house. That may sound a bit odd but it is very quaint.

Eating at the Birchfield is considered a very special occasion in Yakima. You MUST make your reservation well in advance. They usually offers two dining times so essentially they serve two groups of people. The menu has about 6-8 items on it and everything is top notch. Wine selection is excellent as well.

The staff couldn't be any better. They are highly experienced, knowledgeable about both the food and the wine and very very polite. It's nice to be served by someone who actually cares!

Above the restaurant is a hotel of sorts. Several rooms that can be rented. It looks interesting but I have never stayed there.

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

The menu consists of five to six entrees (fish, seafood, beef, lamb) with salad and appetizer included with entree. Food is always great, as is the service. Very friendly and attentive. Only one seating each night, so you need a reservation and must be on time. You don't have distraction of people coming and going during dinner. Usually three or four dessert choices. Great wine list with a lot of local wine. No choice in appetizer and salad, so it helps to like variety and having willingness to try new things.
