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 was overpriced for simple southern food. The service was great, though, and because we made reservations, we were seated as soon as we arrived. The flavors were okay...could have been better. Presentation was nice but the menu was hard to read due to small text. Our server was very nice and helped with descriptions of entrees.

Food was an 7/10. Our server was awesome! The hosting staff was smug and not very welcoming.

Horrible! Sadly surprised by this restaurant. Noise level was at the max. Menu was so limited that we settled on a hamburger. We decided that this was the safest to order. It is difficult to ruin a hamburger. We don't know what the meat was comprised of, but it was hard, tasteless and small. The bun stuck to the plate and the french fries were soggy. This was a Sunday brunch menu and it was pathetic. We will not be eating there again nor will we be referring it to anyone. We will stick to our O.C. restaurants. Stay away.

Gluten Frree Chicken was fabulous. The cost
Is pretty high $26 when everything is a la Carte. The kitchen sent us an order of Hush Puppies and apologized that the kitchen was taking so long to get our entree out. Our waitress Jessica was incredibly attentive! Great service, good food, music was just a bit too loud. Hard to have a conversation! Manager was accommodating and said she would lower the volume. Overall good food, and great service!

Our visit was absolutely amazing. Great ambiance, service, food and experience. Jordan was extremely helpful in describing the menu for us and had excellent service for us. We had Mama's biscuits to start. Then the Llewellyn Fried Chicken and the Chicken, Waffle, n Spiced Watermelon. BOMB! Like, they should've sent a poet to truly describe these. Watermelon Slang and an Upshot for wine. Loved it all. Will definitely be returning.

It was what one should expect from Yardbird: family atmosphere, phenomenal meal, attentive but not hovering service, and reasonable prices. I can’t wait to come back!

We had a reservation for a table of 5. Less than 10 minutes after we paid for our lunch, a “manager” asked us to clear the table because other guests had been waiting to be seated. I have NEVER been asked to leave a table for someone else in my life. Will not return.

I located this place online while surfing for birthday celebration venues. Everything was wonderful...from the time we stepped in and stepped out! Service was exceptional. The food was artistic and delicious. Great date and hang-out place. The noise level was a little high, otherwise all had a great time. Definitely looking forward to my next visit.

We ordered the lobster Mac and Cheese - it was mac and cheese with a lobster in it's shell on top of it. So the mac and cheese had no seafood hint whatsoever...the lobster was small and chewy. Also, it was $48. The kale salad was drenched in dressing even though I asked for light dressing. I had requested my steak done medium plus and the waitress had no idea what I was talking about. The Brussels sprouts it was over were only sauteed...and had very little flavor. Our waitress was quite unpleasant. She didn't tell us about the specials and when we paid she said she couldn't process my credit card unless it had a chip.
Our entire dinner was $175 and we left hungry and unsatisfied. Such a bummer.

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.
