a review is really not enough to say how much of a great time I had here. a short wait for a table didn't matter as the staff were happy to chat and "set up" the experience to come. all the staff were completely into the ethos of the place and the food matched there enthusiasm. if you like food...

State Bird is a one of a kind restaurant. Formatted like a dim sum restaurant but light years difference. The food is some of the most innovative I have ever had. Descriptions can sound strange but the tastes are amazing. Beside the offerings that come around on a trolley cart, there is a written menu. On this menu are some... More

Was in SF for a few days (including my birthday). My husband decided we should give State Bird Provisions a go. Seeing as reservations were booked out for the next few weeks, we arrived at 4:30 and joined the short queue (which grew considerably by 5:30). Our kids (6 & 9) came along with us and enjoyed watching the prep... More

A what a treat it was. Friends took me there for my birthday. I was advised that they had booked months in advance. I can see why! The place was buzzing. It's a bit like Dim Sum. The food is brought to your table on a trolley, so you pick what you want. Portions are small, so you get to... More

Although booked up months ahead, those who like innovative and high quality food should take the time to get in the queue (from 4.15pm) in the hope of being early enough to get one of the walk-in spaces they save every day. This is a bustling, lively and fun restaurant that's all about atmosphere and culinary surprises. It's not your... More

We discovered this place accidentally as we were taking a stroll. Our luck was great that someone had cancelled their reservations and we got to get in. The concept is great where food is being brought to your table and you can choose what you want to buy. I loved the short bites. Atmosphere was great. We've tried coming back... More

Ok I have to admit I did not think SBP could live up to the hype. I was sorely mistaken. It's really really good. I mean like dizzying heights of goodness. Experience is quite cool too since they do the equivalent of a dim sum cart (but nothing at all like dim sum) and roving champagne out of a double... More

I am so glad I woke up at 3am EST to make reservations 60 days in advance for dinner here. It was so worth it and nothing like what we have in Pennsylvania. The place was packed when we arrived so we had a drink at a bar around the corner. Got a text when our table was ready. Servers... More

I stayed up until 3am EDT to get on OpenTable at midnight SF time in order to make this reservation and it was well worth the effort. The food was really good and the concept just suited my love of lots of little bites. At $210 for food and drinks for three people I think the price was reasonable given... More
