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.

We all shared our dishes making the experience even better. I was disappointed in the mac and cheese I found it flavorless. Otherwise the corn was amazing and so were the hush puppies the chicken was cooked perfectly and juicy we are all very pleased

Terrible service, slow food, the only good thing was the fried chicken, but not worth going otherwise.

Even though Dine LA brought us to the restaurant when we asked for the menu we were told they weren’t sure if they were serving it. Waitress brought our food but no plates to share or silverware. We had to go look for her. Restaurant very loud. Chicken was excellent but bad service will keep us away

Poor service. Slow service. We were celebrating a 62nd year anniversary. Food was cold. My Mom, received her Salmon Salad, when everyone else had, finished more than half their meal. One of My friends and I, asked for extra salad dressing, when we received it, we were already doing eating. The other group in the room we were in were given a complimentary 1 candle cake, acknowledging their birthday celebration. My parents, did not get a complimentary cake for their 62nd year anniversary. Ok. So we will order, a slice of hummingbird cake. “ No it’s no longer on the menu” ok, “I’d like to order, a peach cobbler to go” “ we don’t offer peach cobbler to go” I won’t come back to yardbird on my own. If a friend asked us to go for a meal at yardbird, I’d tell them my experience.

Such a wonderful restaurant! I booked a reservation here to give my bridal party their wedding gifts and to also celebrate a friend's birthday and we absolutely enjoyed ourselves. The service was incredible and all of the food was delicious! I look forward to returning.

Hostess with European accent twice was socializing personally with other member of staff (gossip), once at check in and after when getting parking validation. I had to interrupt to get their attention and to greet our party. This was a double birthday celebration. We arrived 10 mins before reservation time, and was not seated until 20 mins after reservation time, a total of 30 mins wait with my family including 3 young kids that were hungry. No apologies, no customer service, did not offer appetizers or bread while kids are starving and waiting. Place is clean. Music and noise is loud. Food was pretty good, but had better value elsewhere. Whole chicken is $60. Costco is $5, or Popeye or KFC or El Pollo is better deal and just as satisfying or go to Roscoe’s for same style at much better value and authentic environment. Must be the price doing business at Beverly Hills, this place will not last. The only positive thing that is not worthy was a friendly and attentive waitress, although away from the patrons we noticed all the wait staff seemed unhappy, just putting up a front for customers. Oh, birthday dessert for my mom and 4 year old son was billed (nice!), on a positive note, at least the candles were free, I guess....or was it. Bottomline go elsewhere to get southern food with quality service at a much better value. Seriously, learn from us :-D

Since I am Gluten Free, I rarely get to eat fried foods. I discovered Yardbird’s GF Fried Chicken at their Las Vegas location a few years ago. AMAZING! I’ve since returned to the Vegas location.

I was thrilled to learn of the Beverly Center location after seeing a spotlight on our news station. I immediately made reservations. Parking is easy and the chicken was just as I remembered and hoped.

My family loved the biscuits and the waffles - neither of which I was able to partake. The cocktails were great, too!

My family now is as obsessed with chicken as I am.

Absolutely terrible service. Ordered the chicken biscuits and they were inedible (soggy breading and undercooked chicken). Server chose to walk by our table a number of times clearly ignoring that we had set them on the edge of the table. As a southern girl and some one who deeply loves southern cuisine, I was extremely disappointed and would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

This was my first visit to Yardbird, and I really enjoyed the experience. I had their authentic, juicy, fabulous fried chicken, which reminded me why Popeyes, et al. should be avoided whenever possible. Their fries are really terrific, too. It's an interesting-looking room and the servers are both efficient and personable. On top of that, they validate for parking, which was a great desert.

We love Yardbird! From our first visit with the Vickers (Eddie &Ashley), we have been hooked. The managers have been outstanding and each waiter has been superb. Brandon, Nick, and Kelsey have been above and beyond. This last visit for Father’s Day all three were outstanding! Nick was AWESOME 👏

Took my husband and 6 year old out for Father’s Day a day early to beat the crowds. Lobster in the Mac n cheese was ice cold-not steamed. Sent it back they steamed the lobster but then didn’t drain it well so the Mac n cheese was watery. Husband just dealt with it not to make a scene. The chicken, regular Mac and cornbread were barely warm like the food may have been sitting and cooled down before it was brought to our table. Ordered the doughnut tree for my daughter and they were stale - dry. She wouldn’t even finish half of one. I felt like they just brought us the display of the doughnuts. The gold tree they hang the doughnuts on had dust on the base! It was my worst experience at a restaurant.

The waitress/Manager gave my husband a free drink and they replaced the dessert and didn’t charge but we don’t eat out a lot and it ruined our Father’s day dinner.

The food was outstanding. The biscuits were hot, flaky and light. The richness of the fried chicken was evident in the crust and the flavor was distinct without being overpowering. I'm looking forward to my return.

I had really high hopes for this restaurant because a friend recommended it and had great things to say. Unfortunately for us, the service was quite disappointing. There was a large party in our area and apparently there order effected the timeliness of our order. Had the server come over to explain the reason why it was taking so long for our food, we would have understood. But, she left us sitting there. I had to take it upon myself to ask a different server what the hold up was. Not only did our server not tell us that there was a problem in the kitchen, but she did not offer to refill our drinks. As far as the food, aside from the biscuits, everything was ordinary and not worth the price.
