Ever since we first went to Birchrunville for dinner, we've known the simple truth: There is no better restaurant in the Philadelphia area. In fact, it's one of my top 3 restaurants in the world. The other two are in Paris and California. A quaint former general store, that retains that vibe, this is cozy and unique. It's hard to... More

An out of the way jewel! Small and intimate and amazingly quiet! Our salads were great and creative. Out fish entrees were delicious and the venison was a delight. The warm liquid filled chocolate lava cake was to die for! Great service!

Can't believe I haven't crowed about this place before....Maybe I was afraid that I would increase seating demand too much. We've been enjoying great meals here since probably 2000. Never have had anything but a great experience. Out in the boonies of Chester County, PA for most, but just a twenty minute drive for us from Valley Forge. Super setting!... More

Our very favorite special occasion restaurant is Birchrunville Cafe and Store. We have never been disappointed by any of the varied dishes prepared by a true culinary master. We have enjoyed appetizers like; roasted figs, or lobster bisque, Spanish octopus, or love pillows (gnocci). Our entrées have ranged from Scottish Salmon Trout, to Kangaroo, to Peppercorn crusted Strip Steak, or... More

We visit every 6 months for birthdays and anniversaries. Never disappointed. Menu always a bit varied as chef feels appropriate. So happy lobster bisque was back on menu. Fish and meats always a bit unique and tasty. BYOB makes it more affordable even with desserts which are exceptional. We have had same incredible server Emily now for last 4 years... More

Excellent evening of fine dining, outstanding service in this charming local restaurant. The staff seamless served our gourmet dinner between countless wedding toasts. Foodies from all over were blown away by the wounderful food. Planning the event was a breeze with help from Jane on timing, menu selection, flower recommendation, and wine suggestions. We all loved this gem and are... More

What can I say!!! 45 seats and open Weds-Sat. for dinner only. It can take months in advance to secure a reservation. This is a gourmet BYOB restaurant in a very rustic country setting. We started dinner with a unique preparation of escargot on a bed of parsley liquid and creme fresh. Our first plates were beef cheeks and pappardelle... More

My wife and I along with another couple ate dinner at this lovely, quaint restaurant recently and lovvvvvvvvvvved it! It was our first visit there and our friends 3rd or 4th visit. So first of all some of the logistics: It can seat maybe 30-40people tops so a rezzy is a must. There is free parking beside the restaurant and... More

Went here w/friends for dinner in early July and everything about the place is exceptional, the quaint location, interior of restaurant, service and my meal was beyond exceptional. The only thing that could make this place better is if it were bigger and we didn't have to depart as quickly for the 8PM seating. LOVED IT and can't wait to... More
