One of the best meals I've had in DTLA. Great service and ambiance but even better food and drink. Worth every penny. Put this on your list of "Must Go".

Lovely setting but the food was not for me. Loved the downtown location and the architecture of the building. The staff was very professional and friendly, however the valet was not.

This was our first visit to Redbird and it was an occasion to celebrate Father's Day. It's a bit pricey but the presentation and food was well worth it. We left satisfied. Both my husband and myself love a cocktail prior to dinner, we are not into the "handcrafted" cocktails, but rather classic drinks. If I had one complaint it would be the size of the "rock" in the cocktail glass. When ordering a drink "on the rocks" and the drink comes with one rock the size of an iceberg we found that to be deceiving and a turn off. However, my martini was perfect and delivered the way it was requested.

We attended brunch prior to wedding dress shopping for my cousin's wedding. The food was outstanding! And the venue is beautiful. We sat in the enclosed courtyard. It has a greenhouse feel. At certain times, they retract the roof for alfresco dining. Beautiful!

We had a blast! We live in Boston, and I try to schedule a RedBird visit whenever possible. Introduced my family to celebrate a graduation and birthday.. All the staff were aware and congratulated our son. Personal touch made the evening very special. Food was tremendous, as were the cocktails, enough said about their rolls!! We had Edwin as a server and he was terrific, explained all the entrees and made thoughtful recommendations. Looking forward to future visits! Thank your for a most memorable evening.

The reason for the slightly reduced overall rating is the parking. It's atrocious. Restaurant management comped the fee by deducting the amount from our bill, but the company the parking service company they use was seriously understaffed.

Nice setting in old church rectory. Eclectic menu, very interesting choices. Very well- and carefully-prepared. Very good wine list, some unusual and fairly priced, and good choices of wines by the glass. Two dining areas: smaller one by front is more cozy with a few tables along front windows, two sofa lounge areas, and a few bar seats; the main dining room is much larger, under glass vaulted ceiling, with larger tables good for small groups, but busier, noisier. I went Sunday night so quieter than usual. I will definitely go back.

The space was so nice. The food was great.
We shared everything. The shrimp mushroom risotto was the bomb.

Great setting. The menu doesn’t have a lot for vegetarians but creative menu items for meat eaters. Everything looked fantastic and our choices were really good. It was odd that although the restaurant was virtually empty they sat us right next to the only other folks there. This arrangement gave us very little privacy. I would recommend it to others and go again too.

Wanted to impress major business colleagues. Redbird was perfect. Kyle created exceptional and creative cocktails with our brand, the server Robyn who had taken care of me before, although was not our server this time, recognized me, came over to our table and could not have been more charming and welcoming. It's so nice to know they appreciate and remember past guests. Josh, the asst Somm came over, introduced himself, offered to help and made great recommendations. He made sure to visit the table a few times to check on our experience.
My CEO is a man who dines in the finest venues in the world and was thoroughly impressed with all aspects of Redbird.
Thank you all for making every visit perfect!

Redbird is one of my favorite restaurants in DTLA. I have been three times now and each time is somehow better than the last. I recommend the sea bass and beef tartare. If cocktails are 'your thing' they have a fun option to let the bartenders craft something for you based on one or two ingredients of your choosing, which is always fun. Ambiance is great and the entire staff is friendly and professional. Great for a date, for bringing a client, or a small group of friends. Will be back soon, thanks Redbird!

Creative menu; friendly and helpful staff; lovely ambiance...especially for an out-of-towner; fun bar menu. Overpriced for the total value. Would recommend but there are many other choices for the same,or less, price. Try it once, then somewhere else next time.

The food was okay. My ricotta pancakes were dark, almost black. My mint tea was refreshing. Tasted as if the mint was grown out back and selected that morning specifically for my cup of tea. Our service was mixed. First they attempted to seat our group of six at a cramped corner table on the patio. The corner table was situated oddly where we’d have to climb over each other to reach our sears. When we expressed disappointment our waitress seemed irritated with us [“We seat 6 people here all the tine]”. We asked to be seated at a different table. To her credit she returned with a table in under 30 seconds. Our new table was perfect. Our food service was great. The staff attentive. But when we received a check that was $50 more than expected for our group the waitress did not apologize. She casually grabbed the wrong bill as she muttered [“This must be another table’s bill”]. Overall, my experience was not great, but I enjoyed the beautiful dining area. I’d be willing to return to give it one more chance but will not be ordering the ricotta pancakes and will be triple-checking my bill.

Recommended for both informal and special occasions. The restaurant is somewhat chic without being pretentious. Very interesting menu, very good food. The service is extremely attentive and professional, without being annoying. Prices are reasonable, but don’t plan to dine here if you are on a budget.

They need to hire a new chef ASAP. Foods were terrible from appetizer to dessert.
This comment means foods were not proportional to the price to the last.

Beef tartar was watery and worst. The raw vegetables were dry and did not look fresh. The scallop sauce was a little sweet. Yuzu's dessert had no aroma of citron. If it is a cheap restaurant I will not complain.

Cocktails were good. But I don’t like Mary gold flower on my favorite cocktail, need to prepare small Orchid, not from their backyard. Luxury feeling falls.

Service was very good. Staffs’ attitudes where excellent.
Staff quality is high. There are a lot of staff and they are not super professional but good personality.

I would like to go again because of the service and atmosphere. I will not have a dinner, as a snack with some good drinks, before they change chef.
