Visited last month with family as this is their go to place. Bison burger, rabbit and veal prime rib were all excellent. The creme brûlée dessert was yummy too. Service was attentive and kind. We enjoyed talking with a fellow teacher in a different city. Visited many places this trip, silver birch was our favourite.

Great atmosphere and great food. I had a delicious arugula salad with pomegranate and tons of walnuts, followed by fish cakes, and finished with the Saskatoon butter tart.

After talks with friends and looking for a good place to eat The silver birch was our choice. We sat down and it was over 15 minutes before we were even offered a drink.

The Bacon Maple Caesar is worth the trip on its own. The food was almost without exception, fantastic (although I have had better Pickerel Cheeks). Subtly creative with every one of us (a group of 10) raved about the food, the presentation, and the only slight downside was a probably new server who I don't doubt will get there eventually....

Top notch meal and service! The manager, Kate, got us seated quickly and our server (I believe it was Diana) was with us right away. She was attentive without being overbearing, and very efficient. I had the bison burger with poutine and my girlfriend had the maple pumpkin gnocchi, both meals were fantastic. Kate checked in on us towards the... More

Had the veal prime rib and it was cooked and plated beautifully. The Saskatoon berry butter tart was fantastic as was the boreal forest salad.
