This is an excellent lunch choice. We had salads and sandwiches, which were delicious. The highlight this time was the brown butter cake. It was absolutely superb!

I am always interested in restaurant like these and decided to dine there last night. Sat at the bar, and the evening started well. First cocktail was reasonable, bar the need to feel I needed to wave my hands at the bartender to get his attention. Ordered the steak and fries, which came out piping hot and was delicious. To go with this, asked the bartender for a recommendation of a red wine. He suggested a glass, and on first taste I could immediately tell the wine was not good. Asked him to taste, and he tasted himself, and proceeded to tell me I was wrong and the wine was fine. I ordered another wine, I know when wine is not good. No attention during my meal, or checkin from the bartender despite him standing in front of me the whole meal. After dinner, the bill came before any comments. Checked it, and it looked fine, around $50. I ordered a coffee, and he ran my card. The receipt was returned to be signed $110. Asked for the bill again...with some distain, he looked at me and proceeded. And he then realized he had over charged my card. He promptly core up the receipt, despite me asking to keep a copy. The he charged my card again, and said he voided the previous charge with very little apology. When asked for the confirmation receipt for voiding the charge..he could not present it and stated he didn't know how to print it. This whole debate was on going in front of other guests. Finally a more sincerely apology. But by this time I was tired of this attempt to disregard the mistakes that had spoiled my dinner. I walked out disappointed, and as I passed the manager, he seemed oblivious to the event despite him apparently needing to void the mistaken charge. Poor form, your bartender would take a waiters course, and loose the attitude as it's not helping the restaurant in any way.

The food was good. It was a bit pricey for my budget. I can have really good food in Portland with out spending $200 for three of us. Glad I had a gift card that make the sticker shock a little better.

Met a colleague for lunch. The menu options were limited. Nothing fresh on the menu - all friend and or heavy. Only one salad option and i was a very small plate as we saw one arrive at the next table and they proceeded to order another dish. The vegetable sandwich while tasty, lacked the full list of veg outlined in the menu. It was a roasted cauliflower sandwich. And mostly bread so the ratio of filling to bread was way off. The cashew spread/sauce was yummy. Overall the sandwich was a miss because it essentially was cauliflower and bread. Little Bird should offer more salad options or at least a fish that's not fried.

I never have complaints other than noise here-noisy because it’s popular and the food has been excellent the last year. I send guests here all the time. Gabriel Rucker has a talented team and Portlanders are so lucky to have so much talent in their backyard.

Local "foodies" recommended Little Bird and treated me for lunch. I then took my sister there to celebrate her birthday. Both times I had the brie cheeseburger - it has just the right amount of spiciness and the cooked it perfectly both times I had it. The service was excellent with great "quiet" attention (very non-intrusive). Definitely a treat.

Overall, the food was disappointing. We had the seared Foie Gras and the Foie Gras Torchon, which were both really good. The Cassoulet though was basically white bean soup with a very small duckling leg, a tiny piece of sausage and a single tiny piece of pork belly, which was all fat. There was no seared crispy top to the Cassoulet from being in the oven and if they added bread crumbs as they claim to create a crispy seared top, we couldn't tell. Pretty sad for $30. The Fired Chicken Coq au Vin was two pieces of way over cooked fried chicken with a very vinegary sauce--it was supposed to be rosemary-balsamic jus--but all you could taste was vinegar. Again, very sad for $29. Both entrees needed more salt. The service was outstanding (can't remember our waiter's name) and the bottle of wine we selected was also outstanding. However, the meal just wasn't worth the $230 (tip included) we spent.

One of my favorite restaurants in town and this visit did not disappoint. Ate at the bar with my date. The bartender served us with just the right amount of attention and the sommelier helped us pick out a great Gamay from the lower end of the wine list...easy to spend big money on wine here put plenty of great options under $60. We had oysters, the coq au vin and the trout along with the beet salad and crispy brussel sprouts; all items were on point, beautiful to behold and most of all delicious. Service is casual but attentive. Great atmosphere and vibe. Recommended.
