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.

Not very welcoming or accommodating when coming with dogs. Also the food comes quite slowly and was disappointing.

Loved the food, price points, and ambiance. Our server forgot one order for our table but promptly took care of it and removed from our bill.

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.

Outstanding service that was only exceeded by the flavor & quality of the food and drinks. We arrived on-time and were seated immediately in a smallish room upstairs. The food menu is fun and the drink menu extensive. Service was on point with the small plates arriving at internals so that the table was never crowded. Tip: save room for their great desserts.

Had a great lunch with a good buddy. The wine selections are very inviting. Loved the TXAKOLI wine was soo tasty and went well with all the selections we picked. The kale salad was so good! Big portion for sharing for sure.
We also had the grilled octopus which i could have eaten all to my self, but shared 😀. Lastly the pastrami taco's also superb and generous in size (2 per order) Can't wait to go by and try some more items.

First time at restaurant, date night. Ambiance is nice, but noisy. Was seated upstairs, so not as noisy.
Menu is interesting but confusing. Waitstaff explained it wad tapas style of ordering, but said certain meals only came with certain choices. Server was very impatient, almost rude, expecting us to fully know the menu choices even though it was our first time there.
I asked the server for a suggestion for a wine pairing, which was a good choice.
Dinner was where everything went downhill. The server brought the main course first, even though we had ordered appetizers. The rest of the meal was delivered by the bus boy. We saw our waitress only once more during the meal.
The main meal presentation was nice and attractive. However it was clearly the most salty entree I had ever eaten. Even my date complained about her entree as well.when we complained to the busboy, he sent the server over who looked at us like a deer caught in the headlights of our question. We explained that the dinners were terribly salty and inedible. The only response was what appeared to be the standard response, “Do you want something else?”
We asked for our check and left the premises. Quite honestly I had a difficult time sleeping that evening as both my hands and feet felt swollen.
In my honest opinion, this is more of a bar hangout with dinner being a secondary choice. We will not go back.

This is my fifth time to the restaurant… I know it’s mainly a small plates venue but I wish they would change the menu items periodically to add a little bit of variety. The food is always consistently good as is the service, however.
