Highly recommended. Very nice overall experience. I know the head chef was off that night. The food was still excellent.

We had a very nice dinner with a vendor. My reservation was for 4 but we ended up with a 5th person. The staff scrambled to seat all comfortably as the restaurant was full. Nice job by the staff!

Excellent! The menu has something for everyone . We took our niece and nephew who live in Manhattan and travel the world. When they visit us we always try to find a foodies heaven and this was a home run. Our waitress was phenomenal and told the chef/owner how much we enjoyed everything and he came out to thank us. We appreciated the time he spent with us. Our food was amazing! We will be back!

Outstanding French American Cuisine. Classy and comfortable dining room with a nice bar area as well. Uniquely paired dishes will not disappoint.

The waitress was in a big rush and made it clear to us that we were taking up a lot of her time. But no one else was there. Also, she was cold and distant and unwelcoming.
The bread was abysmal. Wegmans has better bread.
The risotto was under cooked and crunchy. Not al dente, crunchy.
The drinks were well made.
But, I thought the dinner was so-so at best.

Three Birds has THE best food, bar none, in the area!!! The signature dishes are mouth watering and should be experienced by everyone from near and afar. My only regret is the bar is so close and so very loud. Fortunately, we had a table on the lower level near the fireplace and the noise was muted somewhat but still extremely loud. This should not, however, keep anyone from tasting the amazing cuisine that John creates. I would suggest something be done to limit the noise from the bar if possible.

The food is always excellent.
Visitors should be wary of alcohol markups, though. They had a $19 bottle of wine listed at $54.

The garlic demi sauce is a bit salty but overall was a great pair with the ribeye and whipped potatoes! The light at our table had a loose plug but I fixed it lol! The food was great and the hostess and waitresses were all great as well! No disappointment here at all! Will definitely be back for more!

Service was very good and friendly. I had Rack of Lamb which was cooked perfectly(rare) with fingerling potatoes and fried onions and asparagus as the green vegetable. The rack had 8 ribs which is rather large but doable and a mild sauce which didn’t detract from the fine lamb flavour 😎. My partner had the chicken breast topped with a fig sauce, with whipped potatoes and asparagus which she really enjoyed. A fine bottle of Zinfandel went perfectly with the meal. We are in the Finger Lakes area a couple of times a year and will add this fine eatery to my list when I’m in Corning.

Perfect Dining experience at this charming Western NY restaurant. The food was on a par with some meals we have enjoyed in the NYC / Northern NJ much more well known restaurants!! Their Diver Scallops Appy On Crustini with s sweetened onion relish was an Amazing dish.
Professional and Personable Service. Value priced wine list! Very fairly priced Quality Dinners (this Quality level would cost twice as much in Manhattan.
The only negative to the entire evening (and beyond the restaurant’s control) is the group of 7 who brought in 3 screaming kids! The Management did swat them at the far end of the room but these folks just ignored the screaming until 3 different other patrons asked them to try and comfort the kids and let the rest of the room also enjoy their evening.

This is the second time we were at the resturant. The first time we were 8 people and the service wasn't the best. This time we were 4 and everything was great. The food is great. Everything was prepared as we ordeted. The servet knew her job and perfotmed bettet than we could have expected. We skipped dessert because we were too full from dinner. The price was fair considering what we ordered. Can't wait to go there again.

Great service. Food was delicious .
Maybe they should hire a runner to deliver food as soon as the kitchen has it ready .
Food temp was warm not hot but still very good .

Just when it seems like the service, cocktails, and menu can’t get any better, they keep it coming. The new cobbler desserts are excellent and it’s good to have a change. They need to continue to change out and improve desserts.

Always excellent food and service. My sea bass was suitably tender and moist and my wife’s veal the same, with a rich sauce.

Solid wine list, appetizers and desserts
