We ordered the duck which was not up to the standard we’d had before unfortunately
Our dinner was outstanding - the duck, the cod - we may have ordered everything on the menu ;) Have eaten here several times in the "before times". We all agreed, however, that the waitstaff should coordinate with one another so that when bringing fresh plates (appreciated/changed often) more water or bringing the next dish, it would be a vastly enhanced dining experience if they were to do multiple things at once so that diners don't have to stop talking/eating/put masks back on/take them off over and over and over. The food comes out in dribs and drabs, not all at once, so that makes for lots of table approaches. The experience would be improved with 1/2 as many interruptions.
Love it. One of my favorite places to eat in SF, always! I don't know one person who has eaten here and not liked it! Amazing flavor combos, best staff, impeccable service, the list goes on and on. You will not be disappointed and ALWAYS save room for dessert!
Amazing dinner experience! Loved the safe setup. The food was absolutely delicious.
The Progress/State Bird combination is really great - the food is creative and incredibly excellent. Service was great. The outside seating is (obviously) healthy and the way to go, but a few more heat lamps would be great. Overall an excellent experience and I would recommend it and go back again!
I have been here for dinner in the past so when I heard they were opening for brunch I knew I had to stop in and it was the best decision I made. The food was outstanding and they built out private booths for COVID-friendly dining so all around it was a great experience.
We hard party of 4. We shared the BBQ duck, quail, ranch beef. Everything tasted great. Our server was very attentive, came by to check on us frequently. We sat inside. It felt very safe. People had masks and distanced very well. Overall, a very good experience.
Great food, great ambiance, comfortable social distance seating. Great place for any occasion!
Considering the COVID situation, their outdoor dining is very well prepared, and I enjoyed very much.
Great job during difficult covid times. Outdoor setup was private and safe;food tasted great!
We had a wonderful meal today, late brunch seating. Your staff were top of their service, and the food was amazing . When it started to drizzle they proactively offered to move us a table that was covered. Thank you!
The Seating on the street is lovely. The service, fantastic.
I love State Bird- probably my favorite restaurant in SF... maybe all time, honestly. I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. The outside seating is set up nicely. We were in a “booth” or enclave, I guess you would call it. I’m so happy they are open and able to stay alive after Covid closing.
I miss the carts SO MUCH. The experience of new dishes passing by was so novel to me and was my favorite part aside from (of course) the actual food. I understand why that is not feasible right now though and am very happy to just be going.
My boyfriend had the state bird and I had fish. It was either sea bass or halibut... I can’t remember. Both were great. We also had fish tartar and whole wheat pancakes small plates to share. They were both excellent.
Service, as always, was phenomenal. Seating was immediate, waiter was very helpful and funny. After 20 years in the service industry, this is the only place I’ve been to and thought if I had a restaurant, I’d model service after theirs. It’s absolutely perfect. Generous, kind, inviting and completely without pretense.
Overall, great experience and memories made. Can’t wait until they bring back the carts, but I’ll keep coming back until they do.
This was our first meal out since Covid and I couldn’t think of a better place. Of course the food was delicious, but the service was exemplary. And, we also appreciated the outdoor setup with walls separating us from other tables.
Best night out in a long time. Thank you!
The food is outstanding as always and the outdoor booths make for a cozy and relatively private experience.
Impeccable! They have some of the best veggie dishes I’ve had in the city.
It was lovely. The staff was really welcoming and did their best to make us feel safe-in an enclosed booth outside. And of course the food was great. The potato cloud is one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. And the state bird is always delicious.
Statebird x The Progress never disappoints. We love the variety of food, and the smaller plate options so you can try a little bit of everything. They had a tempura anchovy special the night we went, honestly we could've ordered one for everyone at the table it was that good. The fried black cod tail and the liberty duck were also out of this world. I can't write enough good things about this place. We will most certainly be back for more!
This was a birthday dinner.
State Bird / Progress has done a great job creating a safe outdoor dinning experience during these difficult times. The food was everything I remember!
SO impressed by their service and professionalism even though we were super late, cutting into their transition to dinner service due to crazy traffic and road closures. Based purely on the service, we tipped 30%. Food was amazing as expected. 110% would be back to support the heck out of this staff and restaurant!!
Throughly enjoyed the wonderful food. First time to take our son and we all will come back.
A State of Progress merges two amazing restaurants into one! The ambiance of the outdoor seating is comfy and safe. Food is amazing and there are classics from both The Progress and State Bird Provisions, alongside some new exciting and creations from Chefs Brioza and Krasinski and their talented kitchen staff. Definitely going back for more!
We had such a lovely time! The food was exceptional and Devi e was great too! Thank you- I even purchased the cookbook to see if I could even try to recreate their amazing dishes!
Been meaning to try this spot for a loooong time, and finally did on a beautiful Saturday afternoon during Covid. the parklet they set up with cabanas was fantastic and we felt very comfortable with the service, etc. Shoyu egg appetizer was so good we had one to start and ordered another to finish. Cold noodle salad was also very tasty. Personally, I felt like the squid ink seafood cavatelli and fried quail dishes needed some additional flavor- acid for the pasta and maybe garlic for the quail. Donut holes were great, but the sticky bun wasn't as good as it looked. We would definitely go again, to try some other dishes and definitely get the shoyu egg!
Adventurous dishes, a lot of fun to share. Loved the deviled eggs appetizer.
Sooooooooooo good!! Omg but tiny
Love the new covid-safe cubbies out in the parklet. Feels as safe and private as can be in the circumstances. Food is phenomenal as always, with sweet and attentive service to match.
The outdoor version of these two wonderful restaurants is still terrific. Our server was animated, friendly, and knowledgeable. The smoke from the fires can quickly dirty the outdoor tables, but a quick wipe took care of that immediately. The meal was rich and diverse from appetizers to desserts. The wine list is great too. Thank goodness they have adapted and survived!
The team at Progress and State Bird have done a great job of pivoting during this pandemic. The food was exceptional and the staff was informative and operated smoothly considering all the adjustments that were required to happen to enjoy a meal!
Has the best COVID protocols of any restaurant I have been to yet. Weird to be eating this high quality food on compostable dishware and bus your own tables but I get it. Even though the duck was not on the menu they managed to prep for our party and Adam (the sommelier) provided excellent wine recommendations. All in all we had a great celebratory lunch despite the bad air quality on Saturday.
In the time of COVID, it's reassuring AND delicious to taste what you remember a restaurant's profile of flavors. Progress/SB does this superbly. It hasn't missed a beat working with a skeleton staff. The kitchen has not missed a step. Despite sitting on the sidewalk in 90-degree weather. the food tasted like I belonged. I was home.
Had a wonderful dinner in the booth and felt very safe because the servers made sure we wore masks at all times except when eating. The service and food was top notch. I would definitely go back soon.
The food was nowhere near where it was before. Looks fancy but taste like any regular restaurant.
We had the Spicy Bay Shrimp Salad (favorite item we ordered), Yuba al’Amatriciana (second fav item) and the BBQ Garlic bLack ribs (sauce was amazing but the rib cut could have been better. Too much fat on the bone and not enough meat for my taste).
Cute set up with the cabanas and COIVD friendly. Staff was attentive and kind, following all regulations. I really liked that you ordered using a QR code and paid for everything via the site. Our order was correctly executed and super quick, even our drink. Lovely experience.
In this crazy time we are living through, The Progress provided us with a little bit of normalcy. Staff was amazing, food was amazing and I felt super safe. Thank you!
Outstanding outdoor dining "cubes". felt private and safe and the food was a great as always. Well done!
The food was amazing as always and they were super accommodating for COVID.
The food is still amazing even though they have had to adjust to pandemic restrictions. No more dim sum style service, but you the bonus is getting dishes from both State Bird and The Progress. The sidewalk booths are wonderful and feel very safe for customers and wait staff!
