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

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.

What's good food served fresh is now placed on a trolley, rolling around the restaurant waiting to be served. I think the restaurant energy is great, it's what every restaurant should be. However, the end product is what matters, fail. You should just show your customers the food, if they want it, make it fresh for them. No one likes... More

I really wanted to fall in love with State Bird Provisions. My boyfriend and I were celebrating a milestone so we decided, without a reservation to go. Because we missed the first seating right when they opened, we had to wait, which we were prepared to do. We walked around the area (there is nothing here) for about 30 minutes.... More

Lovely food and a great way to try different tapas style food. Although the menu is not huge don't be put off as they come round with lots of ad hoc dishes for you to choose from. The staff are kept very busy. Very pleasant staff - only too pleased to help. Book so as not to be disappointed

State Bird's food is carefully thought out and very original. There are small dishes resembling tapas that circulate around the restaurant - you choose whatever you want. The menu also features main dishes to order. Everything is shareable. I found most noteworthy the mixture of textures in each dish: especially the crunch factor, thanks to toasted quinoa, chickpeas, seeds, and... More

We lined up here an hour ahead of 5:30pm, the opening time of this restaurant. There were just two parties ahead of us so we thought we were a sure shot to get in as walk-ins. We were surprised as crowds of diners with reservations descended on this place at 5:30pm. When it came time to be seated, our party... More

State bird is a very quirkie different eating experience. Fabulous fresh food served family style. Don't go if you don't like to share your food. Not a place for fussy eaters. Staff are fabulous and really friendly.
