The Bird is an awesome neighborhood spot with great outdoor and indoor dining, excellent atmosphere and staff, and most importantly, delicious food at an affordable price point. Great for groups and families. Definitely going to be making this my new go-to.

Our 19 YO semi-vegan daughter chose The Bird, based on recommendations from whatever social media they now use (my Facebook to her is like a rotary Princess phone).

A very cute and “funky” (a descriptive word from my generation, from when we used stone tools) and quasi-hipster-ish.

It is a real gem and has an ambience of a neighborhood insider’s place. Ample outdoor (multi-level) dining, along with very interestingly designed indoor spaces. Decorating is best described as “college hangout sheik”.

Great, reasonable scope menu of highly creative plates and appetizers. Decent wine and mix-master cocktail list. Moderate (surprisingly)priced menu of chicken, hen, duck, highly creative dishes, salads and small plates.

Food was great! Portioning was perfect. Service was highly attentive. Great work and service staff. Ambiance was very cool.

Highly recommend for date night, friends dinner, (or whatever 19-20 YO’s call it).

This restaurant has managed to elevate making of bland food into an art form. Even a pinch of salt would have made it mildly palatable. Interesting menu ideas but utterly atrocious execution.

My husband and I had breakfast at The Bird for my birthday. It was a Sunday morning around 10am. The decor is cool, the food was awesome, and the service was great! I had the Fried Chicken Eggs Benedict and a side of grits - excellent & just what I was craving.

It was meh, I was shocked their brunch didn't have a bottomless mimosa option. They had carafe's of sangria available but for $36 it was waaaay over priced. The food was also just meh, nothing to write home about, can't say I'd be dying to go here again when there are much better places in the area.

First time eating at the Bird! Had an awesome time! Service was on point, drinks were very tasty, and food was beyond delicious. My fiancé and I ordered biscuits and potato wedges for appetizer and my goodness talk about homemade heaven. Honestly when our sever returned to check on us I asked whose grandmother was in the back cooking. For entree we ordered boneless chicken thighs and waffles. Let me tell you that all we could say wasMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!

We were in town for our honeymoon. We really enjoyed “The Bird”. Our server Aabi was so sweet, had great recommendations, and did a great job guiding us through our dinning experience. The rest of the staff we encountered was also very friendly. The atmosphere was really fun and the food was very good.

We ordered the Korean BQQ wings and they were completely tasteless. The sauce had no taste at all and was just thick and sticky. We also had a fried chicken which was similar with little to no actual taste. The restaurant was nice and service good but the food was not great. I’m not one to complain about food and this is my first ever bad review.

Sat on the outside terrace for Saturday brunch at 1pm, it was in the shade, lovely. They were training a waiter so service was okay because he was learning. Loved the carafe's of sangria, get the gummy bears. Korean style wings were a little over done, tacos were good, breakfast sandwich was more of a fork/knife deal. Biscuits were good, best when warm. Got an outside table, but it would be nice if we could book it ahead of time because they're dog friendly and I would have brought my dog if I'd been sure to get a patio table.

If you are going to be a fowl restaurant, don't be a foul restaurant. Your fried chicken needs to be better than Popeyes or the grocery store. You need a 4 piece, spicy, bone in option. Disappointed. Flight of the egg...2 sides of a deviled egg might be nice. And I thought that the pickled quail egg was a cherry..

My food was just decent, and I didn't like the food my date got either. But I've only been once and only tried two things from a good sized menu and the plates of the people around us looked delicious!

If you want a cool place with a a nice cozy ambiance, big wine list, and what looks to be a good happy hour (there's and upstairs, open air bar) this is a good one right near logan circle. Be prepared to spend a chunk of change though.
