Well, I have been waiting to visit this place for more than a year. I can easily say this was one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. I will go back ! Here are some tips and opinions on the experience. Arrive early- I arrived around 4:30pm and there was already a line. Most of their seats... More

Truly a new and dynamic food spot in San Fran. Californian style Dim Sum so you can order off the menu and be surprised by the delicatbles that are floating around the place. The staff is super helpful and chill including the chef. Sarah is especially helpful behind the bar with food and drink decisions. This is a destination stop... More

State Bird did not disappoint in any way. The food, the service, the setting and the great experimentation of not only the food but the concept is amazing. I travel the world and dine out daily. What Stuart is doing here is inventive, creative, risky and he deserves every accolade they receive. Really well done and will return every trip... More

Well, to get in you have to book. You can risk turning up and wait but booking is essential. I booked 3 months in advance because we were visiting. They only open booking in 3 month blocks. Getting ther, we had to guess. No name, no number. There is some kind of a nest decor outside. The staffs were very... More

Why hasn't someone thought of this concept sooner. An American dim sum restaurant, totally cool. The food was great, from the initial cart which held the smoked trout and avocado chip and dip, to the world peace avocado milk, all were terrific. The interaction of the servers with each serving was delightful. It was the best time.

The best thing about this restaurant is the unique format in which the food is presented and ordered. They provide a fixed menu as well as a rotating tray service, which you can buy the tapas direct from the trays. The night we were there they offered 12 selections they were varied and delicious. The cost is right in there... More

First, get a reservation. Hard to do, which typically means "Great Food!" in San Francisco. Second, only bring your more adventurous foodie friends. This is not a place for the non-experimental. Third, learn to eat State Bird style. First timers, DO NOT order off the menu! Get yourself a cocktail, glass of great wine (just pick your favorite and don't... More

We went certain to have a GREAT meal, but were pretty much disappointed across the board. The place is so "hip" it doesn't have a sign outside nor the number on the street. We ordered from the menu and had an equal share of plates from the "dim sum" carts. Some hits and some obvious misses. From the menu: the... More

I took my family to the restaurant a couple of weeks ago for my son's 24th birthday. We were a party of six so we were not able to order off the menu but instead were provided a tasting menu for the table that was shared amongst the group. Everyone's particular food restrictions were taken care of in advance by... More
