Redbird - Los Angeles Ratings and Reviews
Food overall was quite good, as were the cocktails. Service on a Saturday night was less than satisfactory. We were a party of two, there was several larger parties that perhaps commanded more attention. We waited an exceptionally long time between first, second, and third courses that made the overall experience unenjoyable, especially for the price point. If you’re in it just for the food quality I’d recommend it, but other than that I’d look elsewhere.
I took my husband to Redbird a few months ago and loved it so much I wanted to have my birthday dinner there as well including my best friend and her husband. Unfortunately the experience was not really the same service wise so it really put me off. Our server seemed to not care for our table for some reason. Bussers, bar staff etc were all excellent though. Perhaps I just expect a certain level of service when spending hundreds of dollars for a dinner.
The food is excellent. The only thing I did not care for was the potpie which is all sauce and little substance, the other three items I ordered were delicious and the cocktails are amazing. The bartender was great and made a special concoction for my husband based on his prefered tastes.
I've now dined at Red Bird twice and have not been disappointed either time. Food is excellent. Service is superb and the overall ambiance allows one to enjoy the meal and have an actual conversation. With the roof open it's quite an experience. A gem that more people should know about.
I want to go back and try their brunch and or lunch. It was my birthday so I wanted to really treat myself and my family to somewhere lovely. Had been wanting to go there for some time to check it out as I love that it is in the Rectory of a historic Catholic Church. The ambiance was lovely and very upscale. If money was no object I'd love this place, but the food (as art) was super expensive for the portions and the quality. The drinks were fabulous however! It's a good place to take a date except our booth was right next to a two-top -- literally maybe 6 inches between the two--where a couple were seated on a date and both parties had no conversation privacy. They were lovely, however so it all worked out.
Redbird is a beautiful restaurant. The service is excellent. The food is delicious. We came for Brunch on Saturday. The menu is not huge but it does have a lot of different things. My nephew tried the biscuits and gravy. He wasn't going to order it at first because it had rabbit but I guess Rabbit taste like any kind of ground meat. The drinks were delicious as well. We had a lot of fun.
We went to Redbird for a special occasion and it was truly a special occasion. We spent 4 hours there on a Sunday night and had terrific service during the whole time. It's a very interesting restaurant from an ambiance perspective and the food was pretty good as well. This is not for the budget minded, however.
This was my second visit to Redbird. They did not disappoint. From my first cocktail thru the cheque, very memorable and outstanding food, service, drinks, wine list. Ben, the Sommelier, loves his job and it shows. His wine list and suggestions are something we look forward to each visit. All of the servers are rock stars. The food is over the top. The atmosphere is my most favorite of all.
Went for brunch with my husband. I had basque egg dish and my husband shrimp with grits. Tasty, yet over priced as most of restaurants in LA are. A small brooch donut for $4! However, the waitress, servers and water boys all require extra training on hospitality services: spilled my tea while serving the dish, inattentive, forgot what we asked for...
I would recommend friends to try the food, however, not for the services.
The service was a bit slow at first, I had to wait longer than I like for a glass of wine. The service improved significantly after that.
The food was excellent, great flavors and fresh ingredients. One of my table mates wanted to order a single serving steak but was not able. All steaks were for 2 or more people which we found odd.
Redbird is a beautiful restaurant, with delicious food and very good service. It's on the expensive side, but worth it - especially for the cocktails! However, like most LA restaurants, it's not exactly a romantic atmosphere. We went for our anniversary, and were disappointed by the ambience. It's incredibly loud, the tables are right on top of each other, and we were surrounded by people wearing jeans (always surprising to me at a high-end place). I would probably go again, but definitely not for a special occasion.
We dined on:
Day Boat Scallops, rainbow carrots, haricot vert, red vermouth
California Sea Bass, artichoke barigoule, alaskan potato, pistou
Pommes Aligot, point reyes toma
We really enjoyed the very unusual custard desert with mint, basil, lemon, cucumber, and topped with lime sorbet. It sounds like the flavors would not go together but it was wonderfully fresh and creative.
The service was very attentive and anticipated our every need!
Very slow to get our meals to the table. Took over 45 mins at lunch which is too long. Waiter did not check up with us or apologize. I had to flag hostess to do anything. Chitara pasta, highly praised by waiter as best meal in the House was pretty dismal(bland) and a very small portion. Posile was tasty but literally the size of a cup of soup.
Baked eggs were good. Avocado salad small and very rich. Bloody Mary’s were good as was the cold brew. Value was pretty poor; we paid 206 dollars for brunch plus tip for 2 drinks, 1 glass of wine and our food.
Top level service from everyone we encountered for our preshow dinner. Limited menu but well varied selections. Presentations and freshness above average. Impeccable table service and atmosphere albeit with tables a little close to each other. On the negative side, our main course expensive fish dishes were moderately overcooked.
Redbird never disappoints. Always stylish, always gracious, and always innovative dishes with Chef Neal Fraser's signature style. The environment is beautiful. The cocktail menu is utterly innovative. But everything revolves around the exceptionally good food. We had a group of from 15 to age 80 and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves at a wonderful brunch. But for an evening, I like to keep it grown-ups only.
