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 was looking forward to this meal cause it’s my birthday month. However it turned sour when I requested from the host to sit in corner seat. He denied me and said it was for people with reservations. I had a reservation but he said in their “book”. Unfortunately my meal would have been better if I wasn’t give a lame excuse for seating. Next time I will call Mgr about this discrepancy.

Initially walked in and told there was nothing available and could not be accommodated. Then checked opentable and made a reservation and 15 minutes later we were seated. Appetizers were served before all our drink orders arrived. Had to wait awhile for a soda and Iced Tea. Fried chicken was okay. Shrimp & grits was good. New York strip was so-so. Took a while for the fries to arrive after our food was served. Fries were disappointing.

I love this place. My first experience at Yardbird started at the Miami location on my honeymoon with my wife and it was extraordinary! The food the ambiance and the service was 10 stars if i could rate that high! My next experience at Yardbird was at the Las Vegas location with friends, again, 100% on point food was delicious service was excellent and the atmosphere was perfect, 10 stars again. This third experience at Yardbird Beverly Hills was a little less enjoyable, it was a brunch time thing, because it was a nice day. We got there and were seated right away, our server right away was attentive, but that soon dwindled as time past, our food came our pretty quickly, but was lukewarm almost cold at best, I had ordered a drink before we even ordered food, and ended up having to remind the server of it after we received our main course. Our water refill never seemed to come back after we had asked twice and it was always at least 20 min intervals before our server came to check on us. Empty food plates piled on our table the whole time, we eventually asked if they could be removed, which is odd, cause most restaurants that see empty plates remove them automatically. We did enjoy the dessert of deep fried oreos, that was very good. But again our server took forever to come back and check on us. I used to work in the hospitality industry so I know that good food is nothing without great service. So we eventually got our bill and left a generous tip, even though our server was absent most of the time. This time around Yardbird really disappointed me, considering my last 2 experiences were above and beyond awesome. Maybe the next time I came back it will be different. Overall I give it 4 stars this time around. If the food was not cold and the service was not slow, it would have been 5 stars all across the board, but it was still good what we salvaged of it, but I super let down this this time around. Yardbird I love you, but you broke my heart this day 2-16-2020.

My family experienced this place together for the first time. We kind of knew what to expect via the online menu and reviews, but not completely. We were all extremely pleased and truly did overeat. I'll definitely return!

Great gluten free fried chicken - maybe they best I’ve ever had! Great service from host to waiter. Only thing I would say is it’s pretty expensive and you just might not be expecting that.

I have been eyeing this place on yelp for months and never had a chance to come.....until now. From the first bite my taste buds were at a point of no return. The food was flavorful and couldn’t wait to take another bite. Will definitely be back!!

Excellent food. We came for a retirement lunch and everyone at the table enjoyed what they ordered. Everyone felt that the food was well seasoned. The portions were large and we all had some to take home. Our waitress was attentive. Condiments were not offered and when asked they were individual size (i.e. ketchup).

The food was really good. It definitely has a southern rich flavor. A variety of sides full of flavor. The fried chicken with a Memphis rub is Excellent! The drinks were very tasty also! Also be sure to try the lobster Mac n cheese! I’d definitely go back to this restaurant!

I only had a problem with the managers. They behaved a little aggressive towards me when I went to the bar to order a drink at happy hour instead of at my table. Other than that, the experience was fine.

So good that I went twice over my weekend trip. The waiter started it off right with a menu rundown that had my mouth watering from the jump. The chicken is cooked expertly, the right amount of crispiness and juicy on the inside. The honey hot sauce is the perfect addition with it being more flavor than heat. Didn't know that watermelon can be spiced, but I do know now that it's delicious. A nice thick waffle paired well with the bourbon maple syrup. A totally worth the price, couldn't finish it in one sitting. The fried Oreo was the perfect finisher. It was unexpectedly soft and cake like with small crumbles on the outside. Coming with a cookies and cream ice cream it was a 10/10

We truly enjoyed the delicious, Southern style food--both the taste and the attractive presentations. The portions were move than generous (a Southern tradition) and the inclusion of specialty menu items exclusive to the southern palate like "pot-likker" were a delight to find. The restaurant is spacious with a modern, edginess--but with walled presentations of bottles of liquor and jars of canned delicacies giving a nod to the traditional. The service was excellent and the many interesting items on the menu may tempt you to over-order. You will pay dearly if you do--with your wallet and your over-filled stomach. We will return. You must go. It's a nice experience.

The general experience was wonderful. I have enjoyed this restaurant twice and both times there was confusion amongst the hostesses as to where to seat guests but once that was done, the experience was great. The Fresno Fizz is the drink of choice - frozen spicy watermelon and cucumber with gin. Highly recommend the shrimp and grits, waffles-fried chicken-watermelon, and kale salad (from previous dining - smoked ribs, mac n cheese). The servers are quite good and make fine cuisine recommendations. I will return to Yardbird.

First time at Yardbird. My son ordered the Breakfast Burrito & I ordered the 1/2 Fried Chicken. Plus we ordered a side of Mama's Biscuits. The fried chicken was well seasoned and definitely worth $24. I highly recommend it. Everything was good! Waitress was not as attentive...she didn't check to refill our beverages... I had flag another person passing by to help us.
