A lovely evening in a beautiful spot. Informed and attentive service, never bothersome.
The mussels were gorgeous and colossal! The food was special and unique ... in a wonderfully and tasty way.

Food was excellent! I ordered the Shishtio Peppers, Risotto and the Porter House to share (which was perfect to share for two). Left very happy and full!!

The food is delicious as always, but the service leaves a bit to be desired. I understand this is a popular place, but I don’t appreciate being rushed along. Bussers in particular needn’t take my plate before I have finished my food if they haven’t asked if I’m done. This is my second time here and the second time this has happened. I guarantee you I’m not wasting any of a $16 piece of French toast!

Additionally, if I haven’t asked for my bill, please don’t bring it. Declining dessert doesn’t mean bring my check. I could want something else.

At any rate, I’d certainly return for the food, and hope for improved service.

We had brunch at Redbird and found the location and the interior lovely. Our server was very attentive and helpful - a real plus for the restaurant. Our food came out quickly. We ordered scones for appetizer, two main dishes and a dessert. The scone was okay. The main dishes were showstopper beautiful and delicious. The dessert was very small. All in all, a good brunch. A bit overpriced.

Day began with the Unpleasant host and server. Tables and seats we stained and filthy We did not feel comfortable to sit on such dirty cloth seats. Then the over priced under seasoned food was served With no care or flavor. On top of that the white cloth napkins they use are so old and cheap both my wife and I had so much white cloth lint on our clothes afterwards we had to buy a lint brush to remove from lap! What a terrible experience!!

Amazing experience, service was impeccable! If the owner/staff reads this we truly mean it, from the hostess, bartender, to our server, everyone was extremely kind, detailed and thorough. We sat outside and they gave us blankets as it was a bit chilly, food quality was delicious, drinks tasted great, I’d love to come back.

Everything seemed rushed, and for the price of the 3 course meal I was very disappointed. In addition to that, the service was terrible. We had better service waiting at the bar. Very, very disappointed.

The restaurant itself is beautiful. That being said we sat in the "outdoor" seating and my chair was at least 2-3 inches lower than my date on the "bench" seat. That was, at best, weird. Prix fix was $125 per and we had 2 drinks each...which were apparently $25 each since the bill was $350. Add tip and valet you have a $430 dinner. Was it good? Yes. Food was fabulous and we weren't ruched at all...but that's very pricey for what it is. On another note...we had a good time.

Everything about our experience was impeccable. We had a slight issue with one of our main courses but the staff handled our concern with utmost care and diligence, we really could not have asked for a better response. This was one our finest meals and our server was exceptionally attentive. All this, and the ambience was perfect for our romantic Valentine’s eve date night. We will be back for sure!

Such an amazing experience! The service was so great, the manager brought over some champagne because he know we were celebrating a birthday. The food was terrific, still craving the shishito peppers. I’m a vegetarian and they have many options

More than solid service and a delightful menu. The structure of the menu offerings - choices formultiple columns - is designed to run up a significant total bill.

Went for brunch. Had the egg sandwich and duck confit chiliquiles which were out of this world. Can’t wait until we are back in LA so we can come for dinner.

Redbird was excellent. The food was wonderful and the service was friendly and attentive. My only gripe would be how close the tables are to each other. Not that we were trying to listen, but the people next to you are so close that we were intimately involved in our neighbors conversations.

The pork and burrata was incredible. And robert the manager was especially nice.....gave me and my date a peek at the ballroom next door. A very gracious individual. And a very elegant place. Highly recommended...both for the food and the experience. And the drinks are wonderful.

Redbird truly excels not only for its perfectly executed food, but its incredible staff. As an avid eater and recent transplant from NYC, I can confidently say that I've eaten out quite a bit, and the service here is truly unmatched. Whether it's brunch or dinner, there are no corners cut here.

Beautiful space, great service, delicious food and thoughtful touches. One guest at our table does not imbibe and when amuse bouche were brought to the table, a non-alcoholic one was prepared for them without us even asking.

Do not come here if you’re hungry or in any sort of a hurry. Had a 12:30 reservation but didn’t get seated until 1:20 (I get it, that happens, but how about a heads up at least when we check in that it’ll be almost an hour!?). After getting seated, the drinks took another 20 minutes. When we eventually ordered food, at least that came at a reasonable pace. The food and drinks were delicious, but the price and portion size were waaaay out of whack.
