Wow delicious!

I came here whilst on a family holiday visit. My father is a huge 'foodie' but this was definitely one of my favorite restaurants of all time! The staff were incredibly friendly, and we sat at the bar and had a lovely chat with the chef who told us about all the dishes and gave us a few... read more

This place has rave reviews, queues out the door etc etc. I was slightly disappointed. The atmosphere is great. Fun and busy. My wine was excellent. I ate a variety of the small plates they brought to the table. One or two were great. Most were ok. None were out of this world. The hot food was usually just warm... More

The food was very good, the experience was unique and creative, and the service was amazing. It was a feast worth having. Fortunately for us, We went with my father, and not only was he able to get us in with only two days notice, but he footed the sizable bill. Having grown up in San Francisco, it's rare that... More

My visit was in March 2015 with 3 other diners. We ordered 20 dishes. Of which: the standouts were the fried pork belly with greens and citrus sections, guinea hen dumpling in aromatic mushroom broth and the fried bread with burrata. Even after our large feast, my belly still managed to polish off the highly-recommended ice cream sandwich. If you're... More

What a fun evening at State Bird Provisions. Food passes by, dim sum style, throughout the dining experience making this a great interactive sharing experience for us. The flavors of the food were delicious and interesting. Definitely a must visit restaurant.

Its possible I went in reading too much hype, but I just was not that impressed with the food. Most dishes were way too salty and the oyster was tasteless. The staff were all very friendly and the concept of small plates with interesting Dim Sum is cool...the food just fell flat. The line to get in is not really... More

After trying unsuccessfully to make a reservation for months, we decided to try our luck. We drove by a couple of hours before it opened. There is no address on the door. We decided to stop by again 50 min before opening, and there was a line. We stood in line, and got a nice table . The service was... More

I've been here several times and I've never had a bad experience. My favorite experience was a 17 course birthday dinner. What most impressed me was that our party had several food allergies and preferences and the kitchen and wait staff managed to accommodate each and every one in a seamless manner. The food is delicious and the wine pairings... More

This is a Californian dim sum restaurant, serving many delicious small plates as well as a small but tasty fixed menu. The plates are meant to be shared. The food is exceptional. It is very hard to get a reservation, and we usually spend an hour or so lining up and waiting for a table. However, it is well worth... More

I went at 5:00 and the line was too long, so I went back some time later alone at 5:00 and got a seat at the bar. Service perfunctory, and the food albeit tapa style was good rally not worth the hoopla. Hope their new place is a bit more low key and not so pretentious.
