I was here for a holiday work lunch with not very high expectations. However, the instant I saw the festive Christmas decor of the restaurant my mood started to shift. It's a pretty fancy place so not a very casual lunch spot and I was surprised how packed it was. I ordered the chinese chicken salad which was good and... More

Have been here a couple times on business. Both times have been very impressed with service and meal. Ordered steaks both times, excellent. Shared oysters and seafood platter. Very fresh. Seems very reasonably priced for California. Busy both times, can be a little loud. Overall very solid.

We ate here to celebrate our sons birthday and had the best dinner and service ever! Even without a reservation we had a minimal wait. Our waiter was extremely accommodating and used the candles we brought for his birthday dessert. Which made the birthday boys day. I would recommend this place to everyone, its a little on the high side... More

The disgusting behaviour of staff, including management, determines that I will never visit this diabolical establishment. They have no respect for the general public and do not care when staff members are abusive towards people they don't know on social media and state that they are representatives of the business.

Great selection of dishes in a menu which was not over long. Recommend the blackened rib eye. On offer was sea bass which was the real thing rather than the so called Chilean sea bass - a good sign of a serious set-up. Very extensive wine list.

We where recommended Birks by our hotel, when we walked to the location we where not sure at the restaurant is located on the ground floor of an office block. As soon as the door opened you go into a very popular restaurant with a great atmosphere - totally unexpected. Food was excellent!

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.
