Had an amazing meal - 6 of us and we shared all the dishes. The hamachi was mind blowing, the pork and spetzel insane and the beef was incredible. So many other outstanding dishes, not to mention the incredible cheesy bread things to start!!
The service is really unparalleled and space could not be more elegant.
Cannot wait to go back.

This reservation was for my birthday celebration. A few people couldn’t be there at the exact reservation time as it was pouring rain and accidents all over. Upon checking in they almost refused to seat us until I got upset and had to say it’s my birthday this is unacceptable. They also sat us in the front of the restaurant which seems more like a lounge then a restaurant when I specifically mentioned in the notes it was a birthday celebration and we wanted to be seated in the open area of the restaurant. Our server was extremely pushy and was trying to force us to order the whole time.. even before the whole party was there. Pancakes were great as well as the baked eggs with short rib. My friend got the biscuits and gravy and they were terrible. My boyfriend had the burger which didn’t even have anything on it but cheese? He had to ask for some lettuce and tomato which is absurd. Overall bad experience and I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We were ready to love the food. We loved Grace ,Neil Fraser is a great chef. I had the John Dory ($42). I Kime more salt than the average person bit the John Dory was almost too salty to eat. I left half of it. The crab Thai soup was mediocre. My husband had the swordfish. , he enjoyed it.
We were thrilled they had our favorite champagne by the glass , Charles heidsick. Very difficult to find. The bar is beautiful and the restaurant as well. Great atmosphere. The staff was subpar. Sloppy and unhappy. All of them. We will be back hoping for a better experience and what we have come to except from a Neil Fraser restaurant

We'd made a reservation about a month in advance but upon our arrival we were seated in the bar/lounge area directly next to the front entrance. We weren't seated in the main dining hall and it felt like we were seated in the area for walk-ins. Since we were so close to the entrance we had to deal with people hovering over us as they waited for their tables. It completely ruined our meal. Redbird has not replied to my email about our disappointing experience.

Way too expensive for the value. It's good - but there are so many other wonderful restaurants in LA where you get better value.

The scallops were not that great. I’ve had better at Le Petit Paris. However, the cocktail drinks were amazing. Just exquisite. My fave dish was the lamb belly and Brussels sprouts. The service is on point. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive. Nothing but good vibes form our waiter as well as the back waiters. I like the valet service, in fact I prefer valet. Overall the restaurant did not disappoint. At the end of the night my girlfriend and I were pleased.

Outstanding 1st Redbird experience. Realizing we may be heading to a concert the Waiter asked about the time we had...then proceeded to build the service around that expectation. Well Done Redbird!

Redbird is the best of the best in downtown LA. Not too formal, but beautifully designed, staff trained exquisitely and everything tastes as good as it gets and not outrageously expensive.

The location is very cool, I like the reinterpretation in a modern way of classics such as Risotto, main courses or Salads, we selected it on OpenTable looking for American contemporary cuisine and it was a perfect choice! Good selection of wine also, recommended!

Lovely restaurant, comfortable atmosphere. Food is rich, portions "nouvelle", and prices high-ish, so better for a stylish rendezvous than a satisfying meal.

Every time I go to Redbird it is outstanding. From
Cocktails at the bar to long dinner under the open roof. The servers always make me feel like I am
The only one in the dining room.

Ordered 4 items. Avocado salad was absolutely soaked with ranch style dressing. Not lightly tossed - but soaked. I tried but I could not eat this. Crab Thai soup - great flavors except too spicy for all at the table - lips and tongue were burning. Mushroom pasta - this pasta dish was rich and flavorful but the pasta was overcooked to the point of being mushy. The pork ragu pasta - definitely the best dish of the night. The pasta was perfectly cooked and the flavors very nice.
The service was okay. The person running around filling water glasses poured water on everything on the table. His attention to detail was nonexistent. We picked out a nice bottle of burgundy which we were insulted for in the tone of the staff asking "why would you pick that bottle?"
The setting is a cool space and fun but all else made it not worth the experience.

Superb service from the minute we walked in the door. Immediate service of water, drink order taken promptly, warm bread arrived soon thereafter. Server was knowledgeable and helpful in recommending the appropriate amount of the food for us to share. The only comment was that it was a bit cool in the restaurant, having been seated in the outdoor part of the restaurant. We did not ask to be reseated or to have any heater turned on. I kept my jacket on and ordered some tea.

Dinner was fantastic. I had the boar and my friend had the duck. The duck came sliced, almost like a steak.

The service was excellent and attentive.

Bar service was nice, but not focused. We ate at the bar, never really knew who was taking care of us. A busy night, maybe better on quieter nights.

Redbird is a great place for brunch. Every part of our experience was wonderful, from checking in to our reservation till we paid the check and picked up our packed up leftovers with the hostesses. The menu has nice twists on your typical brunch food and a very nice cocktail menu if you want to make it a boozy brunch. I would definitely come back.
