On our weekend getaway in Palm Springs, my wife and I had trouble finding a vegetarian friendly restaurant but when our hotel suggested Birba we were excited...plus they have Gluten Free options (including pizza), which was a huge plus. We called to make a reservation but they told us they were fully booked. When we asked if they take walk... More

We shared a light meal of pizza and roasted cauliflower. The pizza was much better than it looked and the cauliflower was good. My husband had a beer and a cocktail, he was happy with both. We got there around 8pm on a Saturday night and had to share the communal couch, I'd recommend getting there early or booking to... More

We just thought it was ok. Great atmosphere. Our dishes were all lukewarm. The tagliatelle and gnocchi were bland and mushy. The garganelli was gamey. Portions too small. The cauliflower was exceptional. The chocolate tart very sweet, depending on ones taste. The flat bread was cold. The pizzas look great. I'd go back for those.

Gave this a chance due to reviews. Found it average. Service lifted the review up. Was decent pizza place.

Sat at the bar (again) and had a late night dinner on a school night. Sadly, I got there just as they were closing the kitchen, but I got my order in just in time. Last time I was there, I ordered their kale salad and nonna's meatballs (I think). This time I had the tricolor salad, sauted kale and... More

We had some cocktails, so I can't tell about the food. The cocktails were very good, the service friendly, although a bit slow. The atmosphere was great till dinner time, people were more dressed up and snooty. I would come back, the pizzas looked pretty good.

Everything on the menu looks so good, it is hard to make a choice. The waitstaff is very nice and helpful and the outdoor courtyard is wonderful.

I've been to Birba several times, but haven't thought about writing a review until now. We always try to bring guests here, because to me it epitomizes Palm Springs - the atmosphere, the food, the service... everything. It's not really the mid-century modern Palm Springs, but instead the hip, chic Palm Springs that I'm thinking of. The only issue I... More

I was recommended to try Birba by a friend who is a local while visiting Palm Springs. I am so happy he told me about it because I had a great overall experience there. The food was delicious, the service was awesome and the ambiance was exactly what I was looking for. The restaurant is indoor/outdoor but the outdoor front... More

What an awesome dinner spot! Everything here exceeded our expectations -- from the creative menu to the attentive service to the fun atmosphere. The four of us ended up ordering a wide variety of items and sharing them around the table. Unlike some other places (Sammy's), sharing is encouraged, as opposed to an extra charge. We'd like to try everything... More
