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.

Great food, outstanding service. Lots of small plate options and a nice bar. Part of the Stark group of restaurants---all of which are excellent.

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!

Never lets us down! Always enjoyable. Hands down the best of the Starks establishments....though Starks Steak and Seafood is right up there. But that’s a different experience. The Bird is the place!!!!

I heard so many good things however I was very disappointed. We spend 250.00 without tip for 4 people and left feeling hungry. The portions were too small for 4 people often having not enough for each person to have a portion. Ie; 3 small meatballs or the chicken sliders. The bun is literally 1.5 inches so each slider is 1 bite and again had to share 3 of them for 4 people. I didn’t eat much because I wanted my guests to have enough to eat and they were not satisfied. It might be fine for 2 people And is pushing it for 3!

Nice date night at B&B. Food and service were both excellent per usual. Seated at a two-top with an awkwardly long table between us. The distance plus the overwhelming noise level made it hard to hear each other.

The new Willi’s is noisy the same way. Fortunately Stark’s is a bit more intimate, which makes conversation possible.

Food, service and ambiance is always top notch! Leave it to Chef Eric to wow our taste buds yet again. I highly recommend the salmon collar, fried oysters, and pastrami tacos! We came here for date night and were greeted warmly by the host. Our server was friendly, attentive and prompt as well. We both got cocktails to start which were perfectly balanced and not too sweet. I love coming here because the food is consistently delicious and seasonal, the service in on point and the overall ambiance is cozy and welcoming. I recommend making a reservation here as it can get full. I can't wait to come back soon and try some new dishes!

You know it’s a fantastic meal when oysters on the half shell end up being our least favorite dish. Don’t get me wrong, the oysters were delicious. It’s just that the marrying of flavors and textures on our other dishes were supreme. And don’t get me started on the bone marrow! It was a perfect lunch made even more spectacular by our server Matthew. Definitely worth the drive from Marin!

Atmosphere and decor are a dream. The food is inventive and inspirational. The service is professional without being stuffy. Cocktails are unique and delicious. Could use some sound baffles (could hide them under tables/chairs or behind art). Don't want to be that person that complains about portion but in this case they could be just a little larger. If a table of 5 orders wings bring 5.
