As a foodie, I look to new restaurant experiences while traveling. I was not prepared to blown away by this place. Reservations must be booked weeks in advance, but if you' re open to a 9 pm (or later) reservation, you can get lucky with less time. I've not been to as inventive or consistent restaurant in some time. While... More

While we missed the first slot for a walk-in, we got in during the second slot. We had great seats at the bar, meaning we had a good shot at getting food fresh from the oven/grill/etc. At first, the experience of waiters trying to get you to eat their "wares" was a little overwhelming (with so many great choices), but...

I've been wanting to try this for a while. On a recent trip to SF, we couldn't get a reservation so decided to try 'walk-in'. We got there a little early and were very happy that we got the last table of four. The server recommended a lovely wine, we tried many items from the cart, every dish was a... More

We took our 2 teenage sons to dinner here and everyone LOVED the food. We had many small bite plates to share and every single one was excellent. Each offering was presented beautifully as well. Make sure you book this in advance - can't give high enough remarks.

We managed to hook a reservation online for 5:30 on a Saturday night. When we got to the restaurant there was already a line of people waiting to get in. The restaurant is interesting in that it has the wait staff present you with different small plates to try (ala dim sum cart style) in addition to having a full... More

I ate at this restaurant with family on a recommendation to one of the party. There were no reservations and we were told that accommodating seven of us would be a challenge and to arrive at 5:30 in the afternoon. I am partially biased as eating that early did not set my palate up for a good experience. We were... More

Took a second time travelling to San Fran to get a reservation at State Bird and well worth the wait. Every dish was exceptional in flavors and presentation, service was top notch and it is a unique dining experience similar to dim sum. Highly recommend this restaurant to others travelling to San Francisco.

I live on the East Coast and got up at 3am exactly 60 days in advance to book our reservation at State Bird Provisions (which, by the way, worked like a charm) for our trip to San Francisco. We had high expectations of this Michelin starred restaurant and were not disappointed. We visited for my daughter's 16th birthday and they... More

here it is. Reservations suggested. Food was excellent and plentiful. My fav was the smoked trout, poki, duck pate, avocado butter, cheese bread, state bird, and the list goes on.

Maybe one of the better meals I had in SF. Need to make reservations as it is Hard to get a seat. I don't mind waiting. The guava tres leches is amazing.
