My boyfriend and I went last minute to celebrate our anniversary. The server we had was very knowledgeable of the menu and guided us to make great selections. She recommended the mole punch drink that has a base of tequila super delicious. The cheese bread they have is bomb. My boyfriend and I ordered a 32 oz porter steak with mushrooms the steak was super delicious and huge. Everything we ordered was great flavorful and just memorable.

The restaurant is one of my favorites. We had the distinct privilege of meeting Rod who helped to attend to our table. I had the opportunity to speak with him about the historical significance of the building we were dining in and he gave us an excellent education. Having the ability to see St. Vibiana's Cathedral was one of the highlights of the day. What an exception meal followed by an exceptional connection with a superb individual. Rod ensured we will want to visit and dine with you again.

The food was amazing! What a fabulous dining experience. The dishes were creative, very tasty and well presented. Truly exotic! We asked for the menu back so we could know exactly what we were eating. I'd highly recommend it, and would go back just to see what was new on the menu. We ordered several dishes and shared them all so everyone could try them. Only slight complaint was that the noise level was too high, and for 2 of us hearing was not easy. We did have a very memorable meal celebrating 2 birthdays. Thank you!

Incredible food, and honestly even better drinks. Had the mole milk punch and it was truly the most inventive and tasty cocktail I’ve ever had. The plates were pretty small for the price point, but definitely so tasty. Staff was exceptionally attentive to detail. Ambience was very hip and fun.

We were having a pre-theatre dinner, which our waiter asked us about before we had to mention it. He then proceeded to keep better track of time than we did to ensure we were served with ample time to make our show. The service and food were impeccable and it was a fantastic dinner.

A great experience; attentive staff, amazing food, perfect creative cocktails.
We tried and shared several dishes: Chawanmushi, Burrata Salad, Cavatelli, Broken Arrow Ranch Boar Tenderloin, and Brussels Sprouts. Every dish was a wonderful discovery of flavor and texture. Can't wait to come back and try some of the others.
It was a magical night, shall return soon.

WHAT A PLEASANT EVENING AT REDBIRD. I HAVE NOTICED AS I GET OLDER I REALLY DO APPRECIATE HAVING AN EARLIER DINNER WITH FRIENDS AND CO-WORKERS TO BE ABLE TO GET HOME QUICKER. BUT I MUST ADMIT, I LOVE THE INTERIOR OF REDBIRD, THE ATTENTIVE STAFF, AND THE AMBIANCE AS WELL AS THE AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS FOOD. WE HAD A GREAT TIME AND WHAT WAS SUPPOSE TO BE A BUSINESS MEETING FOR 1 HOUR TO MAYBE AN HOUR AND A HALF, DEFINITELY BECAME A GREAT ATMOSPHERE AND EVENLY SPACED OUT FAMILY STYLE 3 HOUR MEAL.
REDBIRD NEVER DISAPPOINTS AND THE STAFF IS ALWAYS ON POINT WITH WHEN YOU NEED SOME MORE WATER, OR POSSIBLY CONSIDERING ADDING ANOTHER ITEM TO THE MENU. IT WAS REALLY GREAT TO SEE HOW THRIVING THE RESTAURANT IS ON A MONDAY EVENING. WE DID THE 6PM SEATING AND JUST TWO OTHER PARTIES WERE THERE. BY 9PM THERE WAS A FULL HOUSE AND WE COULD STILL PERFECTLY HEAR EACH OTHER AND HAVE A GREAT TIME AND DISCUSSION AT DINNER.
DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND TRY THE SMOKED BBQ TOFU, AND UGH.... JUST TRY EVERYTHING :) I DID NOT REGRET ANY OF THE SELECTIONS MADE. THANK YOU REDBIRD.

Every course was delicious - service impeccable. Attentive but not intrusive. Everything was done with a smile - graciousness personified. The decor is a wonderful fusion of stark floors and comfy seating. Noise level was surprisingly muted even though the restaurant was full. I can't praise the experience highly enough and I have dined all over the world. Worth checking out for sure.

The food was amazing, but the service was horrendous. Starting with the hostess who was rude to us and the waiter that kept forgetting items that we ordered.

I always love red bird. But the food has changed so much in terms of its quality and pricing. The experience wasn't as magical as it first started. The food is plain and lack of care. No flavor, no skill and no understanding of the founding principle of the red bird.

Very ok evening with very nice staff.
Suggestion our side there is a lot of theatre with changing dishes. You don’t need it let the food speak for itself.
Look at the portions they may be on the big side.
Beautiful location with open roof and when to cold everybody’s willing to do something about it.
Thank you for a lovely evening.

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.
