Birdie G’s is a wonderful restaurant with a diner/deli inspired menu. The main offers on the menu like the kugel and pickle chick are incredible, but the specials should be asked about and ordered. It’s expensive, but worth it, especially for a special occasion or get together with friends you don’t see as often as you’d like to! It’s a special place for all the special people in your life!

This is a rare find in Santa Monica. We were seated in the outdoor patio area.
(If you were seated indoors, you needed to show proof of vaccination. I did not
understand why that wasn't necessary for outdoor dining).

The service here is top rate and very professional.
The menus is different from most restaurants. I would say it is
eclectic, but with some familiar items prepared in a more sophisticated way.
It was a leisurely and relaxing dinner albeit a bit expensive.

I will return to try some of the other items on the menu.

Thank you for a phenomenal experience! We dined outdoors and were so comfortable from ambiance and heat lamps. It was the perfect setting for us to enjoy the robust flavors of everything we ordered. The veggie plate will blow your mind - so much more than I imagined it could be. The duck with watermelon and lamb were also amazing. We trusted our servers recommendations and thoroughly enjoyed it all.

On-point wait staff service & front of house attention to details. Weird to begin a restaurant review with a non-food comment, but in these chaotic times if the wait staff is exceptional, they deserve top billing. Birdie G's serves delicious food and inventive, tasty drinks. Plus they have a lovely outdoor patio with great ambience.

Took my children to celebrate my birthday as it’s one of my favorite restaurants. Menu online is veryS outdated. Was looking forward to the Corned beef which was apparently removed from the menu months ago but is still on the online menu. Not a ton of gluten fee options so it was missed. Ended up having the steak which was very but way more expensive and a very small portion. My son had the matzo pizza which he finished in 30 seconds so I needed to order another one. He was still hungry but I was not going to spend $30 on a kids meal.
Everything we ate was very good and the service was good as well.

All the food was delicious and the outdoor seating is very cute with nice ambiance. Just a tad expensive and more of a place for a special dinner and not an every week kind of spot

We decided to try Birdie G’s for our anniversary dinner and we couldn’t have made a better choice. The food was outstanding and the service was fantastic. We kept raving about how good everything was while we were still sitting at our table. Our servers were above and beyond great and even gave us something special to celebrate our anniversary. It was truly a wonderful experience, thank you!

Food is amazing. Wine list is deep and flavorful. Get in before Michelin gives them stars and the wait list gets months deep! I was totally blown away at the fusion of flavors. I totally recommend this place for your next meal.

Excellent service from the hostess. We didn't like our table at first but the only other option was inside, which we accepted. After a few minutes the hostess came back to offer a better table that had become available outside. We declined because we were happy with the second option, but it was thoughtful and caring and she really didn't have to offer. Food is also always exceptional here.

Wonderful time at Birdie Gs. Service was fantastic, helped us line up a perfect spread. Big fans of the matzo ball soup, cavatelli, and the asparagus dish. Can’t go wrong with Jeremy Fox vegetables. Speaking of don’t skip the veggie tray. The onion dip alone is worth it. Nice wine selection. Indoor/outdoor seating options for your comfort. All in all, I recommend.

Our service was phenomenal, I should have wrote her name down before I forgot... Our food was staggered out perfectly, kudos to the kitchen, everything was delicious! The GM made his rounds throughout the floor throughout the meal, which is amazing to see that form of connection with the guests. A+

Overall experience was great. Food was all presented beautifully, all staff were lovely and attentive, our waiter was helpful with direction, and also allowed me to taste two wines before deciding. My only complaint is that I booked an outdoor table, but we were sat inside. Given the inside seating is open and spread out, this wasn't a big deal, but I would've loved the outdoor ambiance a bit more.
