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 night was fun. Don’t like that I don’t get to box up my leftovers. Parts were thrown out that I wanted to keep. Went for a birthday celebration and there was no mention at the restaurant.

AMAZING FOOD. Honestly the best fried chicken I have ever had, and their waffles and cornbread is amazing as well. The peach cobbler is tasty too. The portion is quite big, but we enjoyed it very much.

My girlfriend and I dined at Yardbird for our Christmas brunch. The service was great. I ordered the Salmon Benedict, which was pretty good. It would’ve been better if they toasted the English muffin. It was also a bit cold by the time I received it.

My girlfriend ordered Chicken & Waffles and loved it. It’s a huge portion also. We both ordered mimosas, & they were okay. They kind of tasted funny. But overall things were great.

Food was pretty good better than we expected.

The staff allowed two separate people to walk from the back entrance to the front entrance to check in not wearing a mask!!!

Bartender gave me the wrong drink and then when we ordered a second round the glass was cracked on the rim where your mouth goes. We sent the drink back as we no longer wanted it yet we had to tell the server to remove it from or bill. We’re they being sneaky and trying to charge us without catching it?

Cool spot. The restaurant has a nice vibe but the food was bland. The price was way overpriced. Would not go back as it is not worth it.

The food in our server were excellent. However, neither my date nor I were screened prior to admission into the restaurant for Covid vaccination status! This is unacceptable and dangerous. I will not be returning.

So glad you’re open again. Always a good time here. The server was fantastic and very engaging. Food was great as always.

One friendly suggestion. I always feel like it’s way too bright in the space. Lots of great Lightning, and I feel like it would be so much more cozy if the lights were dimmed. 🙂

Be back soon!

Celebrating a couple things took us to Yardbirds for brunch today. The food in the service was outstanding. I had been to the yard bird in Dallas a couple times. This was my first time at the LA outpost… Will definitely be going back.

We were there to celebrate a birthday and I have to say the experience was phenomenal. I mean the moment we walked in and was greeted at the front desk I could tell it was going to be a good evening. Our waiter was very nice and always checking in to see how things were going with our food.

The food was good and and we enjoyed everything we ordered.

I’ve been to other YardBirds and love the Vegas one, but this one was disappointing. The service (waiter/customer service) was trash. They forgot a lot of items even after I requested multiple times. One order came literally at the end of our visit. The food was good, limited menu, but bad service trumped everything else. Even our bus boy did a better job. He deserved a tip more than the waiter. Also I came here for my birthday probably won’t come back again.

Sean our waiter was top notch. It was super busy and was a little disappointed that we weren't asked for our vaccination proof {although we showed it anyways}. The hostess said they weren't requiring/ asking. In LA County it is mandated so confused on that. Food is pricey esp for fried chicken BUT REALLY GOOD. A little too busy {for these times} which again thought they'd try and distant us/ the tables but instead kept packing them in.

We had a reservation had to wait almost 20 mins to be seated . Our waiter took our order and for some reasons other tables that got seated after us that he was also attending got food long before we were able to receive our food. I knew it wasn’t because of what we ordered as the tables that received food before ours ordered the same things we ordered. He never checked on us only the other tables . I guess he just never liked our table. Despite all that he was still given a a pretty decent tip which I guess prompted an apology for us getting our food late. Honestly at that point we had no interest in the apology.

It was an outstanding experience, much better than Yardbird in Miami. The sommelier was impressive, his knowledge for high quality wines and friendliness was superb. He made me feel so welcome. Our server Samata was fun and friendly, too. We enjoyed the most delicious food and great conversations. I will definitely come back.

The service was friendly and welcoming. I have nothing bad to say about any staff member I encountered. Its more about the quality and the price of the food. The day I went, they were out of chicken thighs because of a supplier issue. Which I understand because it's weird times but it's pretty funny, a chicken restaurant being out of most of their chicken items. My friend and I ordered the salmon avocado toast with a side of eggs (they offer the side of eggs for a $6 up charge). I do think $6 is insane for a side of eggs. That makes this avocado salmon toast 30 bucks and its definitely not worth that but oh well. The drinks were fine but not great for the price. I ordered an aperol spritz and i had to send it back because they forgot the champagne. They offer their house honey hot sauce if you request hot sauce and it comes in this open mouth bottle with no spout. So it kind of just makes a mess. The sauce is great but the bottle and use of it, not fully thought out. The hand-held credit card machines that the server had to ring us up tableside wasnt working so he had to go ring it manually at the computer. There just seemed to be a lot of things missed. I understand the rent on that space must be insane and its la so you pay a high price for very little value. thats just how it is in la. normally i dont mind but there was just so much about this place that doesnt add up. The staff is very friendly and they work hard but as far as the restaurant....meh probably a pass unless they decide to work out the kinks.
