Aimed at bringing street food to life, the Bird & The Bottle in Santa Rosa, CA is the end result of a pair of award-winning restaurateurs looking to blend a surprising array of flavors. Asian, American South, East Coast, Jewish and other cuisines have been combined to create an unforgettable menu.

The menu at Bird & The Bottle features cocktails and an extensive wine list, and foods range from nibbles to larger plates. Everything has been chosen to pair well, and options include seafood favorites, poultry classics like matzo ball soup but also Korean BBQ chicken. There is a vegetarian menu with everything from fried cheese curds to smoked beets, but there are also pork and beef choices in abundance. A visit to Bird & The Bottle has to finish up with a dessert, and the "goo goo pie in another jar" is a must try.

7pm Birthday dinner with our daughter and her friend. Restaurant had plenty of open tables likely due to a Thursday night and the corona virus warnings. Lower Fourth St was experiencing same low turnout. Was there 90 minutes. Our daughter’s tapas (main) was brought out, followed by her friend’s salad (meal) 15-20 mins after. My main was delivered 20 mins after the guest’s and my spouse was never served by 830. Extremely poor service for a slow night. Not sure if it was wait staff or communication with the kitchen, but none of us shared the meal together and this went totally unnoticed and unacknowledged by the waitstaff. We told our busser clearing the table that we were still waiting on one entree. Very disappointing service.

We had a fantastic meal, loved the Korean bbq chicken, crab hush puppies, and smoked beet salad were our favorites. Service was prompt and efficient.

Food was excellent, prices were decent. The only weird part about being there for brunch was that we really felt like we were being rushed out despite there being many open tables. We had at least 3 different people try to take our food while we were still working on it, and finally the server brought our check unprompted while we were still working on our cocktails. It was odd, so we left. Would still go back.

First time and I love this place. I'm from Napa and I wish we had a casual elegant place like this back in the valley. Food menu was set up for small shared dishes with a good wine selection. Great date spot.

Our 6th time in as many months.
Great as usual. Exceptional wait person this time. Friendly, knowledgeable & attentive.

We came especially for their award-winning buttermilk fried chicken. Wonderfully marinated so that flavor penetrates throughly. Only reason we’re not giving 5 stars on food is that it was slightly burnt - visually apparent & taste of crust/skin. We mentioned to our wait person who claimed it always looks like that. She did offer to have another remade but we were out of time. Mentioning only so the chefs have this heads up.

Will come back and continue to tell our friends how much we love it.

We had a lovely lunch! Everything was delicious from start to finish ...we especially enjoyed the cheese curd Mac & cheese, fried chicken, greens with rice cake, and the carrot cake in a jar. Their drink selection and service were quite lovely as well.

Showed up on time for reservation, still had to wait nearly a half-hour to get seated. The host was kind enough to offer us a round of drinks while waiting, we thought this was a nice gesture and we were appreciative. Once seated, our server was great, the food was unique and flavorfull. The food is a bit pricey for how little you get but the atmosphere was great and the overall experience was pleasant. Probably won't become my go-to, but I'll be back. Solid place.

While we’ve had dishes here that we like more than other dishes on the menu, we’ve never had anything we don’t like. Service is always perfect. This is our go-to restaurant when we don’t want to take a chance on something new, B&tB never lets us down.

The food was delicious, the service was friendly and fast. We sat in the bar area, which is my favorite because it's just lighter and brighter than the rest of the restaurant.

We started out with a cocktail, Easy Rider that really hit the spot and was large enough for two of us to share. The food was outstanding and every dish we ordered was so delicious we didn’t expect the next one to be as good but they all were amazing. This was our second time at Bird & The Bottle and the second time was just as amazingly delicious as our first!
