The food for 1 it is really for 3 people. Too much quantity and very low quality. The salmon with risotto, the risotto was too salty. The pork had industrialized barbecue on top! Took really to long to come. My wife didn’t touch its dish! I had a quarter of the pork... it was so bad that the manager didn’t charge us! I would prefer paying and have a good diner instead of like it was. Last, but not least, there was a door every time it was opened it came a cold wind from outside. A restaurant can’t have a door like that!!

The entire staff was lovely. Alec our waiter was outstanding. He knew exactly what we wanted and kept the evening going smoothly.
We shared the Hot Chicken! Still eating it. Delish but huge portion.
The fries were perfect and dessert was Key Lime I think.
Great evening. Would go again and get the Chicken and Waffles! Already planning.

The food seemed very delayed without reason as there were very few people dining and our server barely came to attend to us.

Came to celebrate an anniversary. We thought that brunch was served everyday, but we were mistaken (only on Sundays). We were still able to get brunch menu food made for us by the restaurant. It was the most amazing experience and the staff were extremely courteous. This restaurant is a must on Miami Beach!

We came to Bird & Bone for Father’s Day. It’s one of my husbands favorite places. Being raised in the South he loves & appreciates good fried chicken. We’ve been to Bird & Bone a few times. Which is why he chose it. We’ve never had an issue. I’m going to say & hope they had an “off day” . Hostesses were awesome called us ahead to confirm reservations (weather has horrible) so that was nice. They called to confirm whether we still wanted outside seating (which we did). The service was truly horrible. Literally were greeted by the hostesses. Walked to our table, menus were handed to us... and it went downhill from there. The server was terrible. Not attentive at all. Could not refill drinks, or even try to go over specials, apps nothing suggestions nothing. Totally dry. Food was room temperature @ best. Which again I’m sure was due to the lack of attention. We had to stop him to ask for boxes, we ordered a lot of food as we live in Broward and frequent B&B for special occasions. Server literally did nothing. We packed biscuits, fried chicken, waffles in a box. Asked for containers for sauces. Nothing ever came. So... No syrup, no strawberry jam. Didn’t even get a bag. No dessert, coffee nothing was offered as ifche wasn’t at work. At that point we asked for the check & enjoyed a dessert elsewhere. Again. We love Bird & Bone & really Hope it was a one time occurrence. Time will tell.

We had a family brunch. The food was quite good and service was also at a high level. The tacos (fish, chicken, shrimp) are recommendable. We saw other tables order the fried chicken and waffles; they looked incredible but too much food for our party to commit to. The setting at a trendy Miami Beach hotel added to the hype, but also to a loud noise level. After brunch enjky a nice stroll along the beach’s boardwalk.

Even though we had a reservation, we were made to wait because they appeared to be under staffed on Memorial Weekend. Our waiter was apathetic and food was gross. Go somewhere else.

Server was great very welcoming and just right level of attention
Drinks were fabulous and creative
Fried Chicken was perfectly cooked BUT needed more flavor. The goodness was all in how it was cooked and NOT the taste. Also the portion on both fried and hot chicken is really sharing size as each other is practically a full chicken - normally I’d say generous but in reality more wasteful - especially in our situation (and I’m sure many others) as we were tourists so we’re not taking leftovers home.
Would definitely try it again but be more mindful of asking about serving size for table sharing.

We had an incredible al fresco brunch with bottomless mimosas, Bloody Marias (for Cinco de Mayo) and bellinis. We didn't get the best table/booth. The cushions were wet from the previous diners (the host wouldn't re-seat us elsewhere even though we had reservations and there were empty tables) but our server was apologetic and offered towels. Our server was cordial, on-point, and gave excellent service. The drinks were strong and refreshing. The chicken and waffle dish was flavorful and a huge portion. The biscuits and gravy was delicious--hearty biscuits and a savory gravy better than ordinary country gravy. We were celebrating an anniversary and our server made it extra special by taking our picture and having the kitchen prepare a special dessert (even though we were full!). Incredible food and atmosphere, an attentive server that went above and beyond, and bottomless drinks made this a win. Did I mention the DJ was playing 90s/2000s hits? I was in foodie and music heaven.

I did not realize that when I ordered the chicken/waffles that I was literally getting a whole fried chicken. I immediately told server I was disappointed and she offered me no alternative. Service was subpar which was unfortunate as they add on 18 percent tip automatically everywhere in S Beach.

We met up with some friends visiting from Boston and it was a perfect spot for us to relax and catch up. We started off with the 'Jars" which sounded strange but were delicious and the raw oysters. For our entrees we decided to share the Spicy Chicken, Beef Short Rib, and Chicken and waffles. For sides we got the brussel sprouts and grilled vegetables. We ordered way to much and had plenty to take home. Very comfortable atmosphere and the service was excellent.

Spicy Fried chicken was amazing...as was the burger. I mean lobster, orange marmalade, key lime mustard. YES YES YES! It is a heavy meal so be prepared...we walked home (2miles) after the meal... but it was def worth it. Very delicious!
