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.

I'm from New Orleans, the Holy Mecca of food. I am hard to impress. The food was so good that I devoured it, left, and called in a to-go order to have for the following day.

A cute Santa Rosa restaurant with delicious tapas style plates (smaller portions for sharing.) We ordered pokè, beet salad, fried chicken sliders, and kale Mac and cheese. All the dishes were delicious! Outdoor patio dining made it feel safe to dine during covid times. Thank you for great service and food!

We love this restaurant! The staff is awesome and service is super on point. Cocktails are fantastic. Our only complaint is that there aren't that many vegan options. Most veg based dishes have cheese in them and sauces are not vegan mayo based. I REALLY wish they had more vegan options on the menu.

The food was absolutely terrible here. Each dish was too salty, the BBQ Korean chicken lacked flavor. Mac and cheese is better out of a box. Service was ok, that was the only redeeming factor

Quite simply the best breakfast ever.
Nice, outdoor dining arrangement (COVID set up?) and great service particularly considering the distance between kitchen and t@ble.

We made a reservation and were seated right away after being give the option of dining indoors or at the heated patio . Service was prompt and courteous. Servers were wearing masks the whole time. Food was great- we shared the very generous whole leaf Cobb salad and the Smokey pokey. It has been more than a year since we dined indoors and Bird and the Bottle made it a safe and lovely experience.

Tapas small plates to share style dining. This was fun! Everything was exceptional and we tried 12 dishes plus dessert Small plates are priced like entrees so it was an expensive meal. Great experience and well worth it.
Very good cocktails too!

Normally one of our favorite restaurants, this visit changed our desire to return. Our server got our drink order and when she came to the table my lemon drop (my usual choice) was half full and half the rim of sugar was missing. It looked as though it was someone’s left over. We knew our order so we placed it right away. She asked how we wanted it served. I found that odd. We told her we were in a date and had plenty of time. Well I like the small plates and my food to be staggered so we have time to enjoy each dish without anything getting cold. We ordered the pletzle bread and it came out last. We received everything in a very mixed up order and we barely had time to serve ourselves from one plate when the next would come out. All 5 plates were in the table very quickly. We both felt very rushed. Because it was cold out and we were in the patio our food got cold very quickly. After taking our order our waitress disappeared. We had to ask the busser for boxes and a different waitress for our check. In all we were there 35 minutes. Not the relaxing drawn out dinner I had hoped for. At the price of the food you would expect to be able to enjoy your meal. It was especially strange because it was a Thursday and there was no one waiting for a table.
The food: we used to love the food here. Unfortunately the pletzle tasted like flour, no other flavor. The potatoes were bland and lick warm. The skirt steak was very good and cooked correct which was a pleasant surprise. The Mac and cheese was decent but not hot which was a shame because the cheese was starting to get gummy. All in all we left feeling rushed and very disappointed. I’m not sure we will be back after this experience.

I forgot our servers name but she was fantastic. Food and drinks were amazing like always and they were very covid-conscious. I appreciate that we were running a little late and they changed our reservation from 2 to 215 which was very kind of them.

Wow just amazing all around. Amazing food and cocktails. We went a little wild and ordered a lot. Oysters, shrimp wontons, fried chicken, mini sliders, and the pastrami tacos. The sliders were like epic White Castle burgers, and the fried chicken was awesome. Felt very distanced and safe as well - can't wait to go again!
