Try as many of the small plates that servers offer dim sum style. Blistered green beans, then dumplings, garlic bread burrito, heirloom tomatoes on grain pancake, chawanmushi are some of my favorites. Quail good but really small and $.

The food was pretty good, but after waiting a month for my reservation I was expecting to be blown away. In fact, I found it's sister restaurant, The Progress, to be better overall. It could have been because it was so late, but not much was being passed around but there wasn't that much food to choose from. The garlic... More

The concept of the restaurant is very interesting and the combination with the amazing food makes it a clear choice for dinner

You get the idea from reading the other reviews here. The concept, the food, all amazing. I agonised whether to give this 4 or 5 stars, and not because of the food, because of the service. Whilst the serving staff are extremely friendly, they are all in a tremendous rush to get somewhere- else. You almost need to stick out... More

Such interesting food presented in a Yum Cha style and a vast menu that will have something for everyone. Great service from all staff members. Great way to spend our first night in San Francisco. Just watch your spending! Very easy to get carried away with the amount of food getting offered!!! :-)

Anytime I see people waiting outside a restaurant prior to opening that doesn't even have it's name on the wall....I know something is happening. This is not like your normal sit down to a nice meal type of dinner. It is really a unique experience. We decided to go after I called and found out that approximately 30% of the... More

I visited this restaurant during a business trip to the states. I had no reservation so I decided to wait for the opening and try to get one of the few seats they have at the bar. The business idea is incredible, it's a kind of Michelin tapas bar where you can get a lot of appetizers and then get... More

Arrived in SF on a Monday evening armed with a generous gift certificate, from our daughter, to State Bird Provisions.Could not secure a reservation before we left New York but were hopeful to get in as walk-in.To our amazement we scored two seats. Then the party really began! We ordered just a few things off the menu but mostly feasted... More

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...
