Awesome

First trip to San Fran and this place was just amazing! Everyone so welcoming and food just delicious. The different choice and flavours in all dishes means there is something for everyone, even when super busy each dish was such high perfection. This is a must if you are here but remember to book.

We have been to this restaurant three times and each time we had an amazing meal and fun experience! It is worth the craziness of navigating the reservation procedure to have a meal here. If you don't mind eating late on a Friday or Saturday you should check in around 7 pm to see if they have any late night... More

Best thing here is of course the food. But a close second is that this is the funnest restaurant I have ever been to. I've eaten there 4 times, and it's always wonderful. The chef (a bit of a celebrity in the foodie world, though not on cable TV) is known to bus tables and open wine bottles. The employees... More

Excellent food and fun concept. Some of the dishes are amazing (trout) and the state bird itself. Others try, but fall flat.

My chef friend Justin Devillier from New Orleans told me about this place when I asked about his San Fran recommendations. I soon found out it was a pretty difficult reservation to acquire from the concierge at our hotel, The Palace. However, she said she would do her best. And, she did. She called me with the available times, so... More

When I travel, I like to eat local and seek restaurants where the chef has been nationally recognized, this is how I came upon State Bird. Our trip was a last minute thing so we didn't have the luxury of time to make reservations (when we tried, they were booking 8 weeks out). Knowing they take walk-ins, we went right... More

The food hit every taste bud! Plates and wine were served throughout the night. It was a memorable evening with great conversation and new and old friends. I loved the vibe and atmosphere of the restaurant. The place was filled with laughter and satisfied stomachs.

great selection of unique food served "dim sum" style .... cool from the outside as you need to "know" where it is as if you walked by it you wouldn't notice it.

I recognize many people love this place. My family and I did not enjoy it. Our most negative is that it is so noisy and cart servers constantly interrupt. I'm happy they are doing their jobs, but as soon as we'd get a conversation started at the table, some nice wait person was interrupting us to inquire if we wanted... More
