I ordered the Steak Frites and it tasted like they spilled the salt on the steak. I enjoy a well seasoned steak, but this was way overdone. Also, I asked for Medium Rare and it came out alot more like Well Done. No pinkness anywhere in the steak. The deviled eggs were good and the best part of the meal was the hummus plate with pickled cauliflower.

Great little spot. Large patio would be great during good weather. Food was excellent, although sole dishes are very small portions, so make sure you ask.

Very disappointing experiene. There were 8 of us that went for my fathers 81st BDay celebratiion. Steak Frittes, meat was very fatty. Salad made wrong. Drink made wrong x 3.
Server was very good and very apologetic for quality.
Called to speak with Abe, manager after the fact and he just apologized and said he would pass it on. Will not go back any time sooe!

My wife ordered the barramundi and was raw covered with a tasteless carrot purée. She said it was the worst meal she had ever had. It was so bad and undercooked, that the restaurant took it off our bill. I had the fish and chips which was very good. Not sure we will be back to eat, maybe just go to the bar.

The patio is the place to be overlooking Sundance Square. Delightful menu has creative twists on seasonal farm to table favorites. A salad and a couple of share plates makes for a wonderful variety for 2. You can also order entrees if you prefer. The server will guide you so you don't over order. Excellent drink, wine and beer menu.

The food was delicious. Service was very good also. Our only complaint would be that there are no tables on the patio for parties of more than four. Putting two tables together does not work very well. And no one wants to be crowded when they are trying to eat.

I have dined at the Bird Cafe several times for brunch prior to Fort Worth Symphony matinee performances. The meals have always been delicious. On my recent visit, I really enjoyed the Texas steak and eggs while my dining partner raved about her chicken entree. Although the chicken is fried, its coating is light and very crispy while the meat remains moist. We'll come back again.

The food overall was horrible. I had the biscuits with ham & the grilled peaches & granola. The orange juice was served over ice. I was told it was fresh squeezed but not sure about that. The patio was booked which was a disappointment but even that would not have improved the food. The service was not the quality I would expect for the prices

Setting-ambience was great! Our waiter was very attentive! The New Old Fashion was excellent-very smooth. Our Spring salad was refreshing! The shrimp and grits were delicious and the sauce tasty, tasty. My disappointment was with the duck dish. The sauce was delicious but minimal tiny pieces of duck were almost hidden under the extremely thick dumplings. Otherwise the overall experience was extremely enjoyable!

This is a wonderful place to eat. Took both my wife and Mother in law and had incredible and delicious brunch. Outstanding service and the food is just awesome. Location and ambiance is perfect for busy business folks in Downtown or anyone visiting the square. It’s on my wish list for Father’s Day!

Our second time and second review. This experience was lunch. Not busy, had reservation requesting booth, tried to seat us at a table, I mentioned booth, caused the hostess mental distress. Those problems seemed to continue to the server.

Chips good, smoked chix salad sandwich good, reuben sandwich marginal. They believe that thick brisket makes a good reuben - not so! They tried for "homemade kraut" - misses the mark.

Our first visit was dinner during a festival and the managers had not planned well, ran out of food items and drink items. This lunch visit was not busy so no excuse for slow service - as in other people getting food before us who came in after and placed orders after us.

We love the Bird Cafe and have dined here multiple times usually with out of town guests. For our visit on Saturday night the food and drinks were amazing, the service however was not good. We arrived early to catch the Kentucky Derby and after 5 minutes the bartender finally came over and just stood in front of us no greeting, no can I help you, just an awkward stare like we had ruined his night by being there. I finally said we would like some drinks, he took the order, prepared the drinks then just sat them in front of us with no words. When we got our table the waitress was equally un inspiring, finally took our order then disappeared, cam back with the main course, but totally forgot to bring the appetizers or ask for additional drink orders.

Again, food is terrific and we love the location and atmosphere, but if service doesn't get better we will probably take it out of the rotation.

Amazing find near Sundance Square. We had a wonderful brunch with the family. Everyone loved what they ordered - don't miss the house potatoes. Even though we did not get seating out on the patio, the buildings architectural touches inside were beautiful. Wonderful staff. Will come again for dinner on our next trip to FW.

We went for a birthday and got wonderful, consistent service. Our waiter, Homer, was attentive. Our food, was well prepared. And once the heaters were replaced for fans, the weather was just short of perfect. It was a lovely location and one I would visit again. As far as first impressions go, it made a splash. Thank you for helping my 25th birthday be memorable.

Bird Cafe is one of our favorite restaurants. We have season tickets to Bass Hall and Bird Cafe is the perfect spot for a pre-show dinner. Unfortunately, we were a little disappointed on our last visit. We always order the muscles because usually they are some of the best you can get. This time, however, they were a little gritty and there could have been a little more sauce. Other than that small disappointment, the rest of the meal was fantastic. We had the Farmer's meat and cheese board, the pickled deviled eggs and for dessert, the cheesecake. We will be back and we are hoping it was just an off night for the muscles.

Interesting menu. Restaurant was out of the ingredients to make one dinner and one cocktail we ordered.

Server said, "So except for being out of the dinner and drink you ordered everything else was good, right?"

Shrimp and grits were very good. Ribs were fair. Duck and dumpling was okay.

Would give them another try, but won't rush back to do it.
