Despite the exciting and vibrant atmosphere of The Bird, the food and service did not live up to the hype. Wait times are long and the food was disappointing - definitely a surprise given the positive reviews read prior to coming. I won't be going back - there are definitely better burger options in Berlin.

Went there around 8pm on a Saturday night and waited approx 30 mins for a table. Wait staff were very polite and kept us informed. Once we had sat down and ordered, we waited 1.5hrs for three burgers. During this time, we asked three different waiters for an update and they said "oh, it'll be around two to three minutes"...

terrible experience - long wait (60 minutes+ for a burger in an half empty restaurant?), attitude from the staff from start to finish, culminating in an 'ok' burger and soggy chips.

A New York style diner in the centre of Berlin. Well, almost. It is off the main high street, so look it up and make the pilgrimage, unless you are from NY. This was a fantastic bar with great service, welcoming staff, and a vibrant clientele. The food was gorgeous, and the craft beers varied. We drank some local Berlin... More

Great burgers, very greasy. It's not possible to keep your hands clean while eating this burger. The service was extremely slow- waited an hour to get our food, but the atmosphere is nice, so we didn't mind the wait. We made reservations the same day via email and got a response about an hour later. The location is a bit... More

Having tried, and failed, to get into the Bird on our previous trip to Berlin we had the forethought to book on our most recent trip (I would highly recommend this!) and managed to get a table at the Kreuzberg branch on a lovely sunny evening. Having heard such marvellous things about The Bird I have to say that my... More

Seriously one of the best burgers I've ever eaten, fantastic flavours, perfectly huge portion sizes, chips that are just as good as the burger and all for a reasonable price, really is a huge must! Service was helpful friendly and everyone spoke great English, but I would strongly recommend making a booking first as we were lucky to get a... More

I've visited the Bird three times now (twice in Prenzlauer Berg and once to the new restaurant in Kreuzberg) and the food has been fantastic every time. Service can sometimes be a bit slow during busy times and make sure you book in advance.the burgers are delicious with more meat in a burger than I've ever seen and there is... More
