Silver Birch at Lifestyle was the most horrific experience for this years Mother’s Day. Despite making a booking and told we had to be there on time, we were made to wait as apparently the kitchen had a backlog. The outside section was by no...means full. They were actually turning people away claiming to be fully booked, despite patrons telling them there were plenty of open tables. We had to literally beg for our complimentary mimosa’s as our waiter told us they were finished. Only after calling the manager who told us he would have to open another bottle of champagne did we get them. The food was ugh! Dry and cold with no presentation factor, we could have been at any fast food restaurant except our food was anything but fast. They added on a service charge without informing us which is fine however don’t then allow me to add a tip when you know one has already been added. It was just a truly aweful experience and one we won’t be repeating there again.More

This restaurant is trying to pass off Franschhoek Cellars wine as a Graham Beck product. Beck sold a Chardonnay under the Waterside label until 2015. They no longer produce this brand. The Waterside brand is now used by Franschhoek Cellars. The wine supplied was dated...2022. One of the restaurant staff argued with me that they were supplying a Graham Beck wine because she had been to a seminar etc. etc. and learned about Graham Beck wines. Given that restaurantiers should know about the wines they sell, I think this is dishonest and cannot be passed off as a mistake. A simple scrutiny of the label is surely not a difficult thing to do.More

Nice food in a great setting. Unfortunately our waiter was not interested in serving - only to be cool. Did mot make contact once and did not deliver extra drinks ordered.

Popped in for coffees which were really good. Lovely setting in the Johannesburg sunshine. But to pay an extra R 10 for almond milk is a rip-off.

A good option should you already be at the Life Style Garden Centre. Our food and beverages were decent and the service okay. I would not drive to only visit this restaurant, but was satisfied with the service and they had a nice play area...for toddlers next to the place.More

Opting for outside setting as to enjoy the Jozi summer under plenty of shade, excellent service from Lucky, decent sized portions in what was a relaxed casual environment. COVID regulations were adhered to with plenty of room between patrons. I would recommend the wraps, tasty...and value for money. A great option if grabbing a bite to eat while garden shopping or a casual family meal.More

I've been coming here for a long time and to suddenly pay R37. 00 for 'n normal cup of coffee. Is shocking. We all had to suffer thru the covid. But to have such a price hike on your menu is not on. I do...not recommend you guys to anyone and will not be visiting you again.More

Great family venue. The food portions were good and the food was really tasty. No complaints - choice of inside or outside seating. Nice playground area for the kids within the lifestyle center.

I was surprised on how good this place is. The service was good the food excellent and the environment relaxing. The only downside are the cats roaming outside and in the balcony/patio area. Apart from that the restaurant was very good. A bit pricey but...worth the money and the visitMore

This restaurant provides good food at a moderate (but not value-for-money) price. The food is delicious, service expectable and ambience nothing to write home about. The overall look creates the impression of a dressed-up canteen. Due to the mostly hard surfaces inside, every word and...sound is amplified making the place very noisy when busy. One cannot have a conversation at normal levels due to the noise, but one accepts this for a quick-eat place. The waitrons always appear rushed despite service not being prompt. You won't be disappointed, that is for sure - just don't expect a restaurant where you can sit and relax - there is too much of a hustle and bustle. Otherwise, everything OK!More

Always lovely to have a bite in this restaurant in a colourful area with such a variety of plants well cared for and to do shopping for presents inside the nursery with such a variety of shops and goods.
