Bird & The Bottle

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.

Unusual and interesting variety of foods with excellent service. Many sharing plates which makes it fun with others
Bird & the Bottle never disappoints. The ahi tuna was memorable with the crispy rice cakes. The fried oyster wraps were fresh and tasty, the sauce gave just the right bite, and the lamb meatballs were phenomenal as usual. They are our favorite things on the menu.
Our lunch was in honor of my daughter's 53rd birthday, and we had a great time!!
It was rather noisy inside, and we wanted to have an intimate talk, so we asked to go outside, and the hostess was most courteous and moved us. The food was unique and great---we had a memorable time. Thanks.
The food was so good! Service was great too! Will
Definitely be back!
Excellent food, beverages, service and atmosphere! Very tasty small plates to choose from.
The food was excellent, COVID has not diminished this restaurant.
We love coming here. Service was spot on. We had the beef sliders, the prawns, pastrami taco's, gem salad and the everything green dish. Everything we had was delicious.
Food was delicious but service was questionable . Server advised us that most of menu was tapas style so we ordered 4 plates for 6 people. No sooner than our wine was delivered than the dishes started getting delivered to our table in rapid manner. It created a very frenetic experience and was not enjoyable. I wish we had been told to stagger the order.
Food was good as always. However, one of our plates (a side dish) did not arrive until we were finished with the rest of the meal. Everything was ordered at the same time, but this side (I believe) sat waiting to be delivered because it arrived way late and luke warm.
Really great experience. If you’re considering going, you should. Something for everyone, and everything is cooked to perfection. Will be returning, probably often!
Great fun menu to explore. Wonderful cocktail menu & crazy iterations of Jewish (where else have you seem gribeners as an appetizer?) Greek, Italian and Asian items.
Great food as always!
Such an interesting menu! Several exceptional items--what genius thought of a tomato and watermelon salad?
Some food was very good. Most was ok and ribs tasted like gas. Server was annoyed with us from start.
Our dinner at Bird & The Bottle was even better than we expected - every single dish was delicious and we left with very full, happy bellies. The staff was kind and attentive, and their outdoor seating was very comfortable with plenty of heat lamps.
Took a friend here to celebrate a birthday and had delicious cocktails snd small plates to share. Ambiance is cozy and not too pretentious- like you’re sitting in someone’s living room. Great little find and will definitely be back!
The food was amazing but the service was a little wanting.
Food was amazing! Everything we ordered was just delicious and reasonably priced. Worth the drive!
Very interesting menu with tons of options! The space was nicely laid out as well.
Fantastic service from the greeting to the wait staff to the bus man. Delectable, creative food I crave. Great atmosphere. Big comfy chairs. Libations to sell your car for…..pisco and blood orange and lime! Sweet and savory dessert menu. I love this restaurant
We had 7:30 reservations and were seated right on time. Our waitress was outstanding!! She was polite, gave great recommendations, and was attentive. Our drinks and food came very quickly. We ordered 4 different small plates and the food was delicious. Overall, we had such a great experience.
The food is always delicious at the Bird in the Bottle. The server was great, wry friendly & courteous.
Me and my bridesmaids for my upcoming Oct 10th wedding came here for dinner one night during my bachelorette. While service started off slow- we did wait almost 15 minutes before someone got our drink order- we had a really great experience and would definitely be back. We had never had food tapas style, but we left knowing we’d love to do it again. For food, we ordered 6 dishes that were fantastic- the only thing we ordered but did not like were the chicken wings. Drinks were lovely- definitely recommend the hummingbird if you like cocktails a bit on the sweeter side. Our server, Juan Carlos was also amazing and did his best to make sure we were taken care of. Will definitely be back when I’m in town.
Outstanding cocktails and dishes! Thoroughly enjoyed everything we ordered! The outside patio/deck was delightful and the inside seating area was also cozy so both areas were great places to sit.
Only one of our plates was decent. That being the prawns. Potatoes were overdone. Meatballs were bland and gristly. Shrimp wontons? Where’s the shrimp?!!! Carrot cake desert was so loaded with cinnamon it was gagging. The waiter was inattentive and my water went dry three times.
It was a wonderful experience Enjoyed the food, wonderful whiskey balls dessert. We will be back soon
Great as always! Loved the service and food. Thank you!
It was very nice to be back. There menu is very fun and the whiskey balls were outstanding. We are coming back on Friday.
We have been dining at Bird and The Bottle on Sunday afternoons for over three years now. Our experience yesterday was so disappointing... the quality of the food has gone down....overcooked fired chicken, well done mini burgers, and greens and things with no sauce. I even asked our waiter if there was a new head chef because of the lesser quality of our meals. We do miss the wait staff and hostesses who used to be there because they all knew us and what we liked. I’m not sure we will ever go back.
Lunch on the patio in perfect weather went great with the creative dishes and dessert. Love this place1
I always love small plate restaurants so I can try more foods. The food was delicious and the outdoor seating was relaxing and chill. Great experience.
The food was delicious! Definitely get the Smoky Poke!
THE BIRD AND THE BOTTLE CONTINUES TO SERVE EXCELLENT FOOD AND PROVIDE GREAT SERVICE. I APPRECIATE THEIR FAIR PRICING OF THEIR DELICIOUS FOOD- VICKIE
Love this place!! We come here because it Never disappoints. Always great service and amazing food!
They had a strict policy around having dogs on the patio, they pass out a flyer to tell you basically how inconvenient it is to have your dog there. The food was actually really good, but that service was disappointing. Our waiter didn’t seem to want to help us and then they had a bee problem. We had around 10 bees swarming us on the patio, onto our food and dogs, which made us get up out of the table multiple times. We ended up leaving and asking for them to pack our food since we couldn’t even sit down to eat due to the bee swarm. I actually wouldn’t have a problem with any of it, but they charged us full price and we didn’t get to finish half the food or drinks on our table! SMH, what a terrible customer experience.
Good fusion dishes. Well executed. Good outside dining
They don’t have chopsticks anymore. Salmon wings alway excellent. The service was meh.
Food and cocktails were unique and delicious. The wait staff was super-attentive and friendly. However, the acoustics in the place are horrific. It is SUPER loud, so if you are planning to have a conversation over dinner, be prepared to compete with everyone else's! Suggest sitting outside if weather permits to be able to hear each other and not be yelling. Otherwise I would rate 4.5+
So good we went two days in a row. Tapas style and very well executed
Absolutely fell in LOVE with this place! I celebrated my birthday with my girlfriends here and we all walked away full, incredibly happy and cheerful! Very accommodating, sweet and hilarious staff, and DELICIOUS food! Will definitely be back!
