Had brunch. The badass bacon waffles were great-need to have syrup with them to complete the meal. The crawfish Benedict lacked flavor and was bland. It was to be creole-inspired, but fell significantly short. I would pass on that dish and try something else. Bloody Mary was amazing. Waitstaff was kind and very good.

We love this place! We come out here every few months and always have good service and their food is amazing! The mimosas are very good! Absolutely would recommend trying it if you haven’t already, it is worth the 45 minute drive from Carrollton!

Beautiful building in a great location. Food is high quality though lacked flavor. Staff was pleasant & helpful. Feel like my next visit will be a bottle of wine & enjoying the upstairs patio would be ideal.

Service was AMAZING! Great for appetizers or a full meal. We had the hummus to start and all had the seafood chowder which was very good. This place is cute and unique, right on the square. Also has a cute upstairs patio for when the weather is nice!

Absolutely awful Valentine’s Day dinner. Ran out of the duck that we wanted. And the dessert we wanted! The meat was terrible. Me and my girlfriend were very unhappy with the experience. Over $200 bill that I wouldn’t have paid $40 for. Will never be dining again, and will tell all my friends never to go to bird cafe either. Terrible experience. I will be writing very bad yelp review

We booked a table for Valentine’s Day. I procrastinated so the only reservation time was close to 8pm. No prob. We thought we’d walk around downtown for awhile. However when we walked by the place was DEAD. Seriously only like 5 tables being used so we went in and were seated right away. Why weren’t there any reservations avail earlier?!? So we sit down for the pre fix menu. I normally love the food here but they did not have their A game this night. For the price I expected better options. My husbands steak was not cooked to the temp he requested. The table next to us had to send their steak back twice to get their temp correct. We were told that the dessert we requested was all gone so we got a substitute yet some how another table with more people managed to get the dessert even though they ordered after us. The side dish had no flavor. Drink menu prices were incorrect. It was a very expensive disappointing night.

Not our first visit, but the Valentine's Day menu was outstanding. Service was great and the ambiance is conducive to conversation

Met with friend - perfect noise level to catch up. Waiter fantastic!! Food very good. .. with the exception of the steak being served rare. Which was immediately noted and taken to kitchen for more cooking. Excellent steak for steak frites but the fries were overdone-probably due to returning to kitchen. We will definitely come back

We visited Bird a cafe for brunch on a VERY cold a Sunday morning. They have a lovely patio, but with temperatures in the 20’s we were obviously seated inside upstairs. The menu was awesome and our waitress was attentive and adorable. Our food was SPOT ON - creative and delicious and the mimosas were wonderful as well. We all had something different: Badass Bacon Waffle, Mother and Child Reunion, Texas Steer and Eggs and finally Chicken and Waffles. I can’t wait to return on our next visit to Fort Worth.

Overall very good, my only complaint is that if you sit upstairs (which I prefer) the service is slightly slow. Also, the cheese plate needs more than (8) crackers and the cheeses/meats could be a bit fresher. We were there on a Saturday so I can't imagine why anything would be day old.

Always an excellent choice!
I love the friendly, knowledgeable service and wonderful cuisine.
So nice to be able to enjoy conversation with your friends with the quiet/moderate noise level.

Almost no options for gluten free. No salt on the tables. (And the food needed salt).
Coffee was very weak.

It was our first time there and it did not disappoint. Other than being a little noisy, everything was very good. We will be back.
