    The pork belly is so good! The balcony patio is really nice even at 100 degrees. There was live music - the volume was too loud. Across the patio we had to speak above conversation level. Service was good but really slow…

    Food was good. A little salty on my shrimp but overall good. The waitress brought our water but took we waited about 15 minutes for waitress to come take our drink order. They had a live band which they where really good but alittle loud where me and my date couldn’t sit and conversate and couldn’t hear each other speak. Other than that it we enjoyed the place and the environment.

    I reserved a table prior to my visit and got seated right away. We were seated outside and had an amazing view, me and my mom enjoyed all the lovely staff that checked up on us. We had multiple staff asking us if we needed anything and if the food was good. Also had one of the waitresses take photos for me and my mom, which really helped us out a lot. Enjoyed the salmon and flatbread pizza. Overall, amazing visit, will definitely come back.

    Branch & BirdResponded on July 19, 2022Hi Alba, thank you for visiting Branch & Bird and recommending us to all your friends and family. We love that you had such a wonderful time with your mom. We are looking forward to your next visit. Try to visit us this Wednesday, we have half priced bottles of wine and live music at night.

    Love this place. Food was excellent! We got the braised short rib and filet and they were cooked to perfection. we substituted brussels sprouts instead of potatoes for our meal. It is a small restaurant. So recommend reservations. Looking forward to going back when it is cooler out to sit outside.

    Overall, the service was great. The food was terrible. The quality, portion sizes, and presentation was very disappointing. The food was comparable to airport food. It was extremely overpriced and we left hungry. I was served cold red wine and my “large salad” was on a small plate and the ingredients were wrong. The southwest salad came with onions and ham on it. I think the chef forgot which salad to make. My red wine was served chilled, which was replaced. Something was wrong with the fridge where it was stored. My husbands gnocchi was over cooked and the meat on it looked like bacon bits. Don’t go here. I don’t know who is reviewing this place well.

    Branch & BirdResponded on July 14, 2022Thank you for taking time to review us. We realize how vexing it could be when you're not able to love your meal when dining out. The meat in Crispy Pancetta Gnocchi is pancetta which is akin to bacon, and we cooked it "extra crispy" as requested. We try our best to see how to solve any pain points before the guest leaves our restaurant. Our server replaced your wine and only charged you for the small salad that you ordered, after serving you the regular serving.

    Branch & BirdResponded on July 14, 2022Hi Laurie, thank you so much for visiting us and rating us 5 stars. I thought Shelby might have been a little loud a, but I was sitting right next to her. It was her first time playing for us, and besides the volume we thought she did amazing. We will definitely be having Shelby Stone return and play for us again on Wine on the Skyline Wednesdays or Saturday nights. Thank you again for recommending us to all your network, we truly appreciate it. We are looking forward to your next visit.

    Came specifically for the view and the music and that did not disappoint. Beautiful sunset on the backside of the patio. Nice breeze on the front. Service was also very good. Food was only mediocre and drinks were very expensive for their size.

    Went here for a night out on vacation and loved every part of it. Sat outside and even though it was a little windy it was a great view and experience. Food was incredible (gnocchi pork and salmon agnolotti and bread pudding with dulce de leche ice cream) and I would definitely go back. Already suggested a friend down there should go for a date night. Wait staff was very attentive but not in an overbearing way. Easily a top 5 Dino experience ever.

    The food was store bought and not even appetizing. There was canned corn and crushed ruffles on my food. Their exaggerated use of descriptive words was a poor attempt at concealing the poor nature of the pre packaged and heated food. It was bland and cheap especially considering the price. The view was great and the service was good. It felt like we were eating in a lobby but besides that the food was still bad. 10 out of 10 was a waste of money. Just eat before.

    Branch and Bird has a great menu w plenty of options. The food is delicious and always so fresh. Our server Zoe was fabulous and knowledgeable and recommended the sprouts. I so enjoyed them and they were seasoned and grilled just right. We ordered the Rose at half price Wednesday and it was great. The live music was very entertaining and lots of ambiance. Definitely a "must" in downtown!

    Great space!! Sat outside and was perfect. Not too hot or windy. We were sitting right next to the musician which was a bit loud but we enjoyed the music so it wasn't bad. Took awhile for our server to come by after 3 ppl arrived also had to ask for refills of water. Food was delicious and love the 1/2 price bottles of wine on Wednesday.

    Get out of the house date night, Saturday night. Service was really good. Had Old Fashions for drinks. Drinks were spot on. Pork belly and tri dip for starters, was very good. Gnocchi (crispy) was very good, short ribs were wonderful. Peanut butter pie at the end was “good”. Had music starting towards the end of our time there, and music level was perfect. You can still talk and enjoy the music. Going back soon to remember to post good pics. Good place to check out.
