Tapas / Small Plates | Downtown / Union Square, San Francisco

Started with the sangria and the heirloom tomatoes. Then the spiced olives, then the surf-and-turf paella. All was very good. The smaller-size paella would have been enough for three, but there was only two of us. All was very flavorful and delicious. More

Upon entering Birdsong, I immediately felt like I was in an uncles cabin in the northwestern US. Vaulted ceilings, wood grain everywhere with some steel/brushed aluminum or copper accents. The smells were earthy (in a good way) and the tastes were amazing. Tasteful surprises around every course. The ears found hints of birds singing in the restroom. The service was great, the food was great, the ambiance was great...all and all I would venture out to my uncles cabin again, and I don’t even have an Uncle! Haha More
