Southern
Bringing the best fried chicken and freshest farm ingredients, Yardbird has since garnered the praises of the James Beard Foundation as a semi-finalist for “Best New Restaurant South” and as one of Bon Appétit’s “50 Best New Restaurants” in 2012. Yardbird sticks to the values of tradition, family, and community with a menu of “soul-nurturing” dishes intended for sharing. A warm, comforting environment lets guests feel relaxed and at home while dining at Yardbird. Southern touches add to the nostalgia, like antique candlestick holders, wildflowers on all the tables, and handmade light fixtures outfitted with
Edison bulbs in Mason jars.

The food is delicious, but a bit overpriced. $38 for chicken and waffles is insane.

I’ve gone to Yardbird for my birthday and this time was for Valentine’s Day dinner. They actually had a special menu for the occasion and it was amazing. Customer service is always great. Their employees communicate very well and they also recommend personal and customer favorites. Very enjoyable experience.

My husband and I visited on Valentine's Day and what a treat!! This restaurant pays close attention to ensure each guest has a delightful and friendly experience. The food was very delicious (pork ribs, biscuits, fried chicken and brussels). A tad on the pricey side but the southern hospitality shown makes up for it. Each staff member that passed us, passed with a hello and smile. Each one asked if we were doing ok from the bussers to the greeters. We will definitely return.

I was disappointed with the fried chicken. Most of the food lacked flavor. Service was great and the cocktails were good. I could find a better place to spend $200 for a dinner for 2.

Amazing food and cocktails - on the high end $$ wise.
When asking for ‘normal flat water’ you need to be specific and say TAP or find out on the check you were charged $8 per ‘glassbottle’ that had been filled with no doubt TAP water??? This was a sour point and saw the server who had been amazing become defensive - real shame, be upfront- he we want to pay for fancy water we’ll order a closed bottle!!

If you are a whiskey drinker, then this is the place for you! They have a wall of options to choose from and the bar staff was incredibly knowledgable in all of the options. They made excellent recommendations based on what we were in the mood for, drinks and food, and were top notch. We ordered the chicken and waffles, biscuits, and mac-n-cheese. This was MORE than enough food for two people to split. The portions are large and my only comment to share about the food was the chicken could have used more spices/flavor. It was saved, however, by dousing it in the spicy honey hot sauce and bourbon maple sauce.

My sister and I treated my brother and his son for their birthday here. Restaurant was recommended by my husband co-worker. The waiter Nick was very friendly and knowledgeable. The food was very delicious and some meals were shareable. Some items are al la carte ok if you are sharing. The restaurant in the Beverly Center Mall, which was a plus because got to visit stores (Tiffanys, Burberry, Jimmy Choo, etc) that are not in my local malls (Inland Empire). I will go again!

The tables that got seated after us got service and their food before we even got to order and get water. Then I handed the server my credit card so my friend wouldn't try and pay and she came back right away with my receipt for what we just ordered before we even got our waters and food. I would have liked to order some drinks or even desserts but she already closed our tab. At that point I already had a feeling we would never see her the rest of the time we were eating. She went around to all her other tables and asked them multiple times throughout their meal if they needed anything else while we were sitting there wanting to just get some refills on our waters. She even went out of her way to go around the restaurant to avoid our table when we wanted a box to pack up the left over mediocre food. She didn't even leave a pen for me to sign the receipt when she dropped it off 5 mins after we had just placed our order for food and drinks. We had to finally ask one of the gentleman that cleans up the tables for a box and a pen so I could sign the receipt.

62.00 for fried chicken for 2 is not for me. The deviled eggs were special and worthwhile. The wedge salad was good. The chicken was good too.. just not going to return for it due to the price.

The ambiance at this restaurant is great. It's a lively restaurant. However, many food items have dairy in them. If you are lactose intolerant, there are not many things on the menu you will be able to eat. Also, I was disappointed in the food I did eat. For the price, the eating experience was less than desirable. I ordered the BBQ shrimp appetizer and it was delicious. However, I ordered the BBQ brisket sandwich which was cloying. I also ordered the brussel sprouts, which tasted good, but was very greasy. I ordered the the chicken sandwich and collard greens and they were disappointingly bland. Even the mango sorbet was surprisingly bland. Needless to say, I will not be returning.

Great time trying DineLA dinner menu, but a bit underwhelmed by the desserts. Shortcake fell short and the cheesecake wasn’t anything to write home about. On the other hand, I would highly recommend the pear salad, and the cornbread is a must have.

Thursday at 6:30p. Restaurant was not busy. Food is consistent to all of the other Yardbird.
We shared 1/2 fried chicken, biscuits and Brussels sprouts. The Brussels sprouts are heavily seasoned in a sweet soy flavored sauce. One of the only items on the menu not cooked in lard or pork.

Yardbird is definitely not for a finicky or health conscious diner.

But for southern comfort food it’s good.

Service was great.
