long wait with no reservation to the bird place

I was told this was a do not miss but had no reservations so arrived at 4 pm for the 5:30 seating on an outside line wait list. I was happy to get in at 7 pm. IN the meantime they had me seated at their restaurant next door for pleasant cocktails and appetizers. The restaurant is an amazing... read more

We had an excellent evening at this restaurant. Service is dim sum style with a few appetizer and entree menu items to keep you fed while waiting for the next cart. Food is creative and delicious. Reservations are a little hard to come by but other than that, I give this place five stars.

This place is off the charts good. Creatively served in modern yum cha style, this modern American cuisine is mind blowing. Unique flavors that reminded me flavors I have had before. New flavors in a way I have never had before. Overall the service was top-notch and the food was relatively cheap for how popular the place is. I was... More

We made our reservations for State Bird Provisions online as required exactly 60 days prior to our trip to San Francisco as we dislike waiting in line to dine regardless of a restaurant's reviews. We took the trolley from our hotel on Union Square and made our way to the restaurant, careful not to slip on the beer and wine... More

This is indeed a most wonderful food experience not to be missed. Every single bite leaves you wanting more. My favorite dish of the evening, cucumber salmon tartar with quinoa. It might not sound to exciting but this is were you can see the talent of the chef working his or her magic in making simple ingredients taste sublime. Loved... More

I do not write reviews like this. I have dignity. I am not too excited by restaurant food. State Bird just that dignity and lack of excitement me the best possible way. Other reviewers explain how this is "dim sum" in concept (rolling carts, small plates with taste sizes on them, plus items you can order from a list of... More

Bloody hell! What a fun place to have dinner. Contemporary food served Yum Cha style (grown up food). There's a trolley and a tray with mini plates of delicious goodness on offer.You can order more substantial dishes from the menu, again, delicious. Cracking little wine list along with the most helpful staff I have come across, make this place a... More

The concept is well covered by other reviewers but briefly servers will pass through the room offering dishes that are tapas or even canape size. You can also order from a short list of other dishes. Most of the food was good but in having such a range of dishes some don't quite work out as good. Service was friendly... More

We waited three months for a reservation and SBP was worth the wait, and then some. The food was over the top and add that to a superb staff made for one of the best, if not the best dining experiences ever, and I have been around the block several times. Hurry, make a reservation for an evening you will... More

Great service and food, can understand how easy it is for the cost of a meal to increase when you are continually tempted by an array of dishes, as we do eat with our eyes. It was an experience I am glad we did not miss and would return here anytime. We booked well in advance for our table as... More
