Birk's Restaurant Review

: Birk's is a longtime magnet for Silicon Valley singles and couples. The simple menu centers on steaks, chops and seafood. In the early evening, the bar rocks with techies seeking other techies. To aid their search and to warm them up, Birk's has myriad single-malt Scotches and tasty microbrews. Start with a unique rendition of fried calamari topped with pecorino cheese, herbs, and lots of garlic. For entrées, opt for the wood-smoked prime rib or Birk's “famous pork chops” served with satay-style peanut sauce. Other enticing entrées include the pasta paella, the blue cheese-stuffed filet mignon, and the organic chicken breast, pan-roasted with hearts of palm.

I have mixed feelings over our dinner experience at Birks. On the plus side, the prime rib was excellent; on the negative side the atmosphere and management were quite haughty, leaving us with an overall negative feeling after spending hundreds of dollars for the two of us.
