Literally amazing.
I take a lot of food photos for different blogs, and every single dish that was brought out was not only beautiful, but so delicious. I audibly said, “holy sh*t” after taking a bite of the Foie Gras bread pudding... it was phenomenal. Chef Hackney is truly an artist.
Thank you so much to everyone at the restaurant for being so lovely and accommodating (and not being judgmental when I moved the plates to the floor for photos). You all continue to be great every time I come in!!
Pro tip- get a side of hollandaise sauce with the chicken and waffles. I’m serious.

The quail, shrimp & grits was great! I would definitely recommend. The fried chicken was underwhelming and the appetizer wings were also just okay. Although it was not that busy and the waitress was quick to take our order, the service was just ok because our drinks were not refilled until the end of the meal.

Great early Valentine's Day celebrate with my wife at The Bird. The Bangkok barbeque featuring gai yang style grilled chicken with sweet coconut rice and smashed cucumber salad was incredible. Definitely put this place on your bucket list. We'll be back.

Went for Sunday brunch. The fried chicken Benedict was delicious and the spicy Bloody Mary hit the spot. I’ll definitely be back!

The Bird is delicious - we went for brunch on a Saturday at 11:30 and it wasn't very crowded. As we got closer to noon/1pm, it started to fill up. All of the food was delicious - we got the breakfast sandwich, the fried green tomato Benedict, the biscuits with chicken sausage gravy and the brussel sprouts. Everything was great! We also tried the raspberry lavender mimosas - which were yummy and refreshing! Highly recommend checking this place out!

Really enjoyed this place. It’s small and a bit out of the way. Good vibe all around and the service was very good. The food was fantastic! We went to a Saturday brunch and the drinks and food were really good! The atmosphere is younger people and it could be a little noisy at times, I only put it at a two because I am hyper sensitive to loud environments usually and I didn’t have an issue with the overall sound level in the restaurant. I can’t speak for outside seating or the bottom floor. We sat on the upper floor across from the stairwell and had a great experience. I’m excited to go back at try out the happy hour on the patio, which was recommended to us by our friends who love it!

Great find on OpenTable. My friends and I are committed to dining at new restaurants this year and they were happy I chose this place. From the appetizers to the desserts, definitely worth the visit and we were not disappointed.

Fantastic meal! Very unique menu with wonderful flavors...we really liked the duck meatballs and my Duck breast meal was top notch! The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that we had to salt almost everything. The added salt made everything pop!

Really enjoy the bird for the variety of unusual items on the menu. All sorts of "winged creatures" are featured - duck, quail, etc. - in very creative and tasty dishes. Lots of fun and very tasty food.
