Tucked away within Santa Monica’s historic Bergamot Station, Birdie G’s is a classic restaurant celebrating regional American cookery and timeless family recipes. Award-winning chef Jeremy Fox and his team make everything with great, local ingredients, a lot of love and a wisp of nostalgia.

The delightfully large and comforting menu offers something for everyone, pulling influences from across the country and paying homage to the friends and family who have inspired the team. Gather over wood-grilled California meat and fish, pastas, salads and more whimsical mashups like our World Famous Rose Petal Pie.

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.

The outside ambience is lovely, don't think I will ever want to eat inside again! The menu is fairly concise but thoughtfully compiled - my date and I ate 'tapas-style', sharing four dishes from the salads and hot plates - the acg ceasar, sweet and sour beets, king trumpet mushroom fries and the rustic spring ribollita and they were all absolutely delicious - out only little peeve was that we felt the croutons in the acg caesar oddly huge and dry. The cocktails we sipped on were unique, delectable and charmingly named. And I cannot forget to mention the the empress date bundt cake which was to-die-for. A little sad they don't have an espresso machine as would have loved a shot at the end of the evening, but overall a lovely dining experience. And the servers were champions.

This was my 3rd visit to Birdie G's. The patio has expanded during the pandemic and it is a lovely atmosphere. Our server, Kristin, was great: Friendly, knowledgeable; she made good suggestions. The food at Birdie G's is unusual - paring of foods and seasonings are very interesting and very good. Cocktails are also good. It's a bit on the expensive side, although thoroughly enjoyable.

Went to Birdie G’s for a dinner for 2. I ordered: cornbread, duck liver mousse, sausage cavatelli, gold bar latke, maitake mushroom, rose cake, and chocolate cake. The first three were good. The remainder of my meal was mediocre in regards to taste. The vibe of the restaurant was cute/ trendy. The deliverance of food was slow because the waiter admitted he forgot to submit the rest of our order. I was hoping dessert would close the meal strong; however, the two cakes did not deliver. Overall, my experience was nothing special to rave about for the $190 I spent (including tip) and if I were to come again I would not order the last four items I listed above.

Birdie G’s has a beautiful upscale but casual space outdoors at Bergamot station in Santa Monica (I believe the indoor space is either open and/or will open soon). We had evening reservations in the Spring and were told to dress warm, but the heat lamps kept us toasty enough without having to use the winter coat. I made reservations here for my husband’s birthday.

The Relish Tray is a must try if here for the first time. The onion dip is amazing, and there are some unique pickled specimens (e.g., pickled sunchokes), as well as fresh vegetables (e.g., first time ever having an ice plant succulent to eat – Delicious!)

We had the Peas and Pecorino as an additional starter, which was very fresh and seasonal.

Next up was the super delicious The Gold Bar (Stuffed Potato Latke) which was super comforting and had a trifecta of goodness: potatoes, gravy, and cheese. Yum!

The Smoked Kielbasa Sausage was our main, and the highlight here was the freshly made beer-braised sauerkraut.

We had to try the Rose Petal Pie for dessert which was just beautiful and had such a wonderful combination of textures.

The service was fantastic, and it was just so nice to have this wonderful dinner outdoors as a celebration of Spring, my husband’s birthday, as well as the re-opening of businesses since the pandemic shutdowns. Would come here again in a heartbeat! Can’t wait to try the rest of the menu!

The staff are all super friendly and helpful.
The food is beautifully presented and tastes even better than it looks.
It’s soon to be a Michelin Star restaurant.

Great ambiance, fantastic food, delicious drinks. Highly recommend trying as many apps and salads as possible (they're all delicious). We had the half chicken for one our of mains and loved it. Be ready to break out the pocket book, but this was an excellent culinary experience and the service was impeccable. Great spot for a special occasion, or if you want to just "treat-yo-self".

This spot is super hip, so expect there to be tons of happy chatting and all that. Impacts noise but isn't objectionable at all. The food was good - not the level I was expecting given the fanfare about this restaurant, but good. My main complaint is that everything was too salty both times I went.

The wine and drinks list is fabulous. The staff is attentive.

Try the lavender almonds!

They did an excellent job of creating a cool outdoor space for dining. The menu is limited. The server said it was family style, so we expected larger than average portions, but they were very small. Not really enough for sharing with the table.

We weren't seated right away, even though we had reservations. Told to first order drinks at the bar and then wait outside.
Food was way overpriced for what you got, a $30 pickle plate among them.
Service was meh at best and the guy wouldn't put in an order of chicken fingers, off the kids menu, for adults. When we insisted there was a kid at home, even showing a picture, he finally put in the order. Really?! We have to fight the server, during COVID, to serve chicken fingers?
All in all we won't be going back.
