    Loved every minute of our lunch at Whitebird! Danny was our server, could not have asked for a more competent, patient, personable person! We were a party of 7 plus 2 babies and a toddler, we were hot and hangry....all 10 of us!! The food was amazing and the service was exemplary!! Well done. 😊

    This was by far the best restaurant we went to on our recent visit to Chattanooga. It was just incredible! The staff went above and beyond to make our experience the best it could possibly be. It has been a long time since I had this great of an experience at any restaurant. Highly recommend!

    Paid fixed fee for Easter Brunch. Appetizer buffet kept running out of many items. Drinks that were ordered were made and charged full price even though ingredients were missing (ex. Loaded Bloody Mary served with only olives). Entrees all had poached eggs that were served hard yolks (way over cooked). Spent over $400 for quite a subpar meal. Also, didn’t appreciate the included 22% service fee for slow and sloppy service.

    Disappointed during this brunch experience overall after other positive experiences, all related to the food. Two in our party ordered a brunch menu item only to have the waiter come out later and tell us they were out of breakfast sausage patties (this was one hour into the brunch service on a Saturday of Easter weekend so not sure how that happens). Given two other meat options that didn’t make sense with the dish (sausage gravy biscuits) so we opted for more gravy which really didn’t appear yet we were charged full price. Eggs that were on the menu as sunny side up had to be sent back for being overcooked - yellows were solid. For the price, this experience was not up to the standard.

    The place was great. Food was really good and service was as well. Except for the fact they forgot to give us our leftovers which we were really looking forward to as it was 1/2 of my Filet. But it was half our fault for not reminding him.

    Pretty quiet for a Thursday. We had a pork chop and the trout. The proteins were both cooked perfectly. Accompanying items were ok. The cornbread was good. Beet salad was fine- nothing new about a beet and goat cheese salad. The pork belly was a large portion and was good - would’ve been better crisped up a little more. Our server was very friendly and took good care of us. Very pretty restaurant.

    Tough night tonight. Service was lacking (a private event upstairs and a lot of large high school parties it seems) and most of the food came out cold. Bummer for a pretty significant tab.

    Service was very slow. It took us two hours total from start to finish. The appetizers were amazing however the entree was not worth the money at all. I ordered the trout & it was very bland. The beans were also hard & tasted like they came straight out the bag. Very disappointed.

    Our server was nice but very slow. Our party of 8 was not well attended to and continuesly had empty drinks, he left plate and cups unattained to once empty. Our food was gorgeous, but mediocre at best. All was cold and had clearly been sitting. My beet salad came out just 3 minutes before our main course. I do believe our server was the result of the meh level overall. We more than likely won’t return even though we’re local residents.

    We had a reservation for 9 people on an early Saturday night. We were seated quickly, however, there was a wedding reception going on in the hotel so the bar was reserved and everyone not there for the wedding decided to come to the restaurant, making the service staff work double time. Our server Danny was great. It did take a while to get drinks and appetizers ordered because he was running around crazy. The burrata was wonderful. The fried green tomatoes were good but the pepper jelly with them was what made the dish. The buttermilk biscuits were tasty and they came with jam and apple butter. I ordered the salmon. It was mid rare, which was not great for me. It also could have used some salt. Overall, everyone seemed to really enjoy their meal. We thought our 5pm reservation might have been a bit early for us to get to our 8pm show but with the crowd and slower service from the kitchen, we were out of the restaurant at 730 and to our show right on time.

    High class dining experience with a moderate price. Great service with a somewhat limited breakfast menu but very well executed. The coffee is from local roasters and it’s delicious. My men’s group meets every Saturday all over the greater Chattanooga area for breakfast and Whitebird is one of our favorites.

    Perhaps our favorite restaurant in Chattanooga. Why? A quiet, unhurried, simple elegance that is not overly crowded that has attentive servers and outstanding gourmet food. The top floor bar overlooking the river and city after a meal are a feature no other property in "River City" can offer. Highly Recommended.

    No host so waited 5 minutes to be seated. Many people passed me waiting but did not speak. Was seated 14 minutes before anyone approached the table or acknowledged me. Food service was very slow, but when it finally arrived, it was excellent. Many improvements can be made here-management for one. But high praise for the chefs.

    I ate there 2 times for brunch during our wkend stay. Don't be afraid to have a "complicated order". Their options are very good, I just wanted to tweak my order to my liking. Server gave no indication of an attitude about it. Didn't even write it down and got everything correct that I had requested. Would highly recommend Whitebird for their excellent service, food, and location!

    If you want to score high points with a date or friends head for the Whitebird at the Edwin! The servers treat you like you are important. Our server, Danny, made our experience the best possible! We split the Burrata, Pan Seared Crab Cake, and Smoked BBQ Pork Belly for appetizers and split a Venison Pasta Dish. It was all perfect and the taste was amazing! We weren't rushed at all and they are very mindful to give you great service and space at the same time. I highly recommend saving room for a drink upstairs at the Whiskey Thief when you are done! We sat on a corner couch with throw pillows with our feet on an Ottoman! The staff there was super friendly as well! The ambiance and view of the city is a great finish to the evening. We talked on the way home about how consistently friendly EVERYBODY was! My wife thanked me again this morning for such a great evening!

    Outstanding meal (again) from the Whitebird - our group of (5) had two starters/apps - the friend green tomatoes and the beer cheese crab dip - both were outstanding. For dinner - we had the chicken pot pie, the trout, and the filet of beef - all were great, well done. Nice cocktails served - old fashioned, beer, and wine. Another great experience at the Whitebird!

    We had a beautiful Saturday brunch with friends visiting from Florida. Our server Josh was excellent. We shared a bucket of bubbles with 3 different fruit juices. I had the very tasty Nooga bennie. The eggs were perfectly cooked. The location is perfect for a walk over the bridge or into the art district.
