    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.

    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.

    Whitebird is an amazing place - our brunch was so delicious and uniquely satisfying. We had several of the food options and enjoyed the cocktails as well. Combine this dining with the beauty of the property and an AMA spa service afterwards and you have just accomplished an afternoon that can't be beat.

    We enjoyed the appetizers, Fried Green Tomatoes and Pork Belly. Both were interesting offerings and flavourful. My partner pronounced the pasta in Venison Bolognese above average. The Whitebord and 3 Sisters Pot was filling of bland. All dishes were served hot. The service was attentive and friendly. We ordered a Chateau-Neuf-de-Pape, which ought to have been decanted. Alas the decanted could not be found! The bread pudding dessert was excellent.

    The Whitebird restaurant at the Edwin hotel is a modern, well-designed space with ample room for comfortable seating. Service was attentive and welcoming, offering many good suggestions. Our family group of ten enjoyed our holiday brunch in the semi-private area. Everything we ordered was delicious and plentiful. I highly recommend the Whitebird restaurant for weekend brunch.

    Everything was superb. We were placed by a window with a view of the walking bridge. Our server was on point. We had excellent salads—apple and goat cheese salad and the smoked beets salad. Amazing. The pork chop was perfect, as was the trout. Finished off with bananas foster and the bread pudding. The lobby has a beautiful glowing Christmas tree also! We will be back very soon.
