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.

I love yardbird Southern table!! I have been to the Miami, Los Angeles and Las Vegas locations and they never disappoint. My faves are always the biscuits, fried chicken, macaroni n cheese, corn, and cocktails. The food is shareable because they give you a lot. The service is always amazing and I love the energetic ambiance. Definitely a place to check out if you have not tried and bring you appetite!

Incredible food, outstanding service. I've been here around a dozen times, and each time the experience is lovely. The food is simply delicious. You can't go wrong with the chicken 'n biscuits and key lime pie. Great for family sharing!
Each time I visit Yardbird, I'm amazed by their efficiency. The servers are knowledgeable, entertaining, and treat you like royalty. Such a wonderful atmosphere. Last time I went our batch of cake wasn't very fresh, and our server whisked it away promptly with no questions asked and returned with the dessert menu. The manager then came and apologized and had the pastry chef prepare us a special dessert that wasn't even on the menu! It was outrageously good and we were delighted by the excellent customer service. Incredible place, please please please check them out for dinner!

A lot to like. The prices are up there; but it's a big space in a prime real estate area, with many in help to provide good service. We liked the food. Very moist fried chicken without a greasy crust. Quite a feat. Peanut butter pie outstanding.

My friends, spouse, and I went to Yardbird after an event for some lunch and enjoyed a great burger. Server Jordan was pleasant and very attentive for as busy as the restaurant was. We will certainly be back again!

Possibly the best fried chicken I've ever eaten! Excellent service, their waffle iron broke and the Executive Chef came out to explain the delay, which is an outstanding gesture. Definitely will be back.

Our server was not attentive. Drinks took 30 mins. Half the order was missing. Had to cancel the reminder of the meal because it still hadn’t come out after I finished eating. After the meal order was placed the server was no where to be found. Never asked if we wanted additional drinks. Never brought the dessert menu. She was awful!

This restaurant was listed on West Hollywood’s eat & drink week selection. First time here and I ordered a watermelon mojito, tomato soup, yardbird hot chicken (slightly spicy), and fried Oreos. I’d return anytime!

Usually amazing however this experience was awful. We have been to more then one location and gluten free friend chicken is always amazing however this time first we were served regular fried chicken and only found out because we questioned the food runner since there was no markings on it to indicate gluten free. Then we waited a really long time for a replacement. When the replacement came it was not up to the standards we know Yardbird to be. It was soggy and undercooked. When we told the manager later when he came back to our table he said the dessert we ordered was on the house however we already had a free dessert so basically he did nothing for the super long wait and gross food. We won't be returning to this location.

I’ve been here twice. Yesterday I came with my mom and she requested friend green tomatoes on the side. The chef (or manager I’m not sure which) personally came to the table to ask my mom specifics on how she’d like it prepared which I thought was awesome. Always a great experience here!

This evening was a date with someone I adore. I contacted the front desk/hostess by the name of Ryan. She was very accommodating & absolutely delightful. The service was excellent, the food was superb, the staff attended to us with ease and comfort which made the entire experience wonderful. I’ve been to the Miami location several times and the Los Angeles location was just as impeccable. I highly recommend this restaurant. We started with the fried green tomatoes which were always devine, we also ordered the mac & cheese which was loaded with cheese and so decadent. We also had the fried chicken meal which came with waffles and spiced watermelon absolutely delicious and the shrimp and grits another wonderful dish. For the special occasion the restaurant went out of their way by writing a message to my special date for dessert. He was touched which just added to an overall excellent evening.

I didn’t care for their spicy chicken or macaroni and cheese. My friend loved both. She got reg(not spicy) chicken. Way overpriced for mediocre food.

The food at Yardbird is very delicious. We had the popcorn shrimp which was served on a huge bed of popcorn, as well as the BLT and the signature fried chicken. The issue I have with this place is the cost of an a la carte 1/2 of a chicken. At best, at a high end organic free-range (this chicken was massaged and hand-fed) scenario, you might pay maybe $10 a pound, right? For a half of a chicken they charged $26!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh by the way that is without any side, bread or garnish. That is outrageous. Clearly they have a big rent to make.

I reserved outdoor seating and was given an
Uncomfortable table in front of the French fry machine, the restaurant wasn’t crowded at all. The fried chicken was so good, and the spiced watermelon was a nice balance. The seasonal vegetables were tasty, just cold...not a big deal and I didn’t say anything. The mashed potatoes were tasty and shown some flare. The bbq ribs were tender and flavorful. The meal was good and the service was top-notch. The cost is very high for comfort food, but they have a huge rent and need to pay for the employees who appear very happy. Dinner for four without alcohol was $200+ - if you compare to Honey Kettle chicken in Culver City the food is pretty equal, it’s the experience and ambiance that gives you the reason to enjoy Yardbird.
