    I go to Birks quite often and the service is good, but fathers day it was bad once we got the food the waitress never came back to check on us. I asked for a refill on the soda from the busboy and never got it so i paid my bill and left. No complaints with the food only the service.

    We’ve known about Birks for over 25 years and have eaten there dozens of times. Now we live out of the area, but when we are in town, we always return to Birks for a fabulous meal and environment that we love. It’s the best place for great food and wine. Thank you Birks!

    Restaurant is pretty long in the tooth and in need of a significant decor upgrade. Food was mediocre, steaks were cooked ok but everything was salty and the lack of choices for sides were disappointing.

    Came here for a team dinner, restaurant food and service was great. The only issue we were seated outside which is terrible because of the cold wind (heat lamps were not very good) and freeway noise nearby. Eating inside would solve these issues but our company still had restrictions on company events including eating inside.

    This was not great and I might even say it wasn’t “good”. I love the look of the restaurant and the service started out ok, but everything went down hill once the meal was served. The heirloom tomato salad was “OK”. The tomato’s were not ripe and were either really hard or very mushy. I left most of them on my plate. There was hardly enough mozzarella to compliment the number of tomatoes. I ordered the mid-sized Prime Rib and asked for it to be medium rare and it was served medium to mid-well. The meat was tough and had a nice smoky flavor but was severely under seasoned. The rib cap had nothing on it which made me think they don’t believe in seasoning - which is a mistake. The garlic mashed potatoes didn’t have any garlic flavor at all and needed salt. Regardless of how they chef feels about seasoning, potatoes need salt. They had a nice texture but they were lacked seasoning and did not have any garlic flavor at all. The bacon-infused creamed spinach was very dry and did not have ANY flavor of bacon. Creamed spinach is supposed to be creamy not dry. Not a good meal for the money. I’m not sure if they had a bad night or if this is the norm but it I won’t be back.

    Great place, delicious stakes, excellent service. Good for both family and profession get-togethers. Try to get seating in the main area, not the back room, unless you want extra quite and perhaps a little cozy setting.

    First thing you’ll want to note is that the Sunday ‘brunch’ menu listed here was not actually available on Mother’s Day, for whatever reason. So we were surprised off the bat when we arrived at the restaurant to see a completely different and way more expensive menu. Had the $73 New York steak and prawns. Clam chowder was delicious, cheesecake was delicious, potatoes were delicious. Medium rare steak was definitely not medium rare. And was pretty tough too. Just kind of a meh experience overall.
