Worth the Wait

We got in line at 4:30 p.m. and there were 20 people in front of us already. They reserve about 1/3 of the restaurant for walk-ins, but we came up short for the early seating. We got in at 7:00 p.m. We had an assortment of dishes, with the oysters, duck meatballs and tomato salad our favorite... read more

So excited to finally make it! Reservations were 60 days out! Had the dumplings, state bird, pork belly, trout (amazing), and the ice cream sandwiches. Loved the casual and trendy feel but the food was definitely gourmet! Loved it. Don't get scared reading the menu, some things sound odd but just ask and go with what they recommend.

Reservations at State Bird Provisions are almost impossible to get , you have to stand in line early and if you are a party of 4 or more it is a crap shoot if you will get in, so have a plan B. We have stood in line twice and this time barely made it in. But once in this... More

Great food, imaginative, well presented, bright and imaginative. Some dishes were quite complex. The place itself is very casual, the service pleasant and efficient. We loved it.

It's really hard to get a reservation, but if you don't get one, do that I have done (numerous times), just get there around 4 PM and wait in line (with a carefully concealed alcoholic beverage) and you'll get one of their walk-in tables! They reserve like half the restaurant for walk-ins. Food is so amazing, everyone I've brought here... More

Waited from 4:00 PM for 5:30 PM seating, it was worth the wait. Everything we tried was great. Cannot wait to go back next time when I am in SF

Our son and daughter in law are San Franciscans and foodies (I know, they go together don't they) and told us this was their new favorite in SF. So when we visited in June we went to check it out. What a great experience. Not only great food, but great fun, in a very energetic and lively atmosphere. The concept... More

We have tried for 2 past trips to get a reservation and have been shut out. We got one finally 60 days in advance! Interesting experience as the staff moves around with small plates from table to table and you pick out what you want as they come through. Can share dishes and just get more as you want it....

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 bedazzling... 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.
