Amazing. Every detail is considered. The food is simply extraordinary. Complex yet never overbearing. Cocktails are divine and truly creative. The decor and ambiance is excellent. And the service was impeccable. I was blown away and can’t wait to revisit.

I love this restaurant, mostly because of the setting, but the food is always very good. The menu is seasonal and creative (but not overly so). There are lots of plates that can be shared, making it possible to sample several items off the menu. I’ve also always had friendly and prompt service.

Was expecting courtyard seating since I made our reservation so early in advance(several weeks) for this special occasion. Instead we were seated right by the door entrance which was too quiet. Needless to say my party of 6 were not impressed.

From calling Redbird when we were around the corner and I was addressed by my name to walking in and being greeted by name really made you feel special. We had Sunday brunch in a very warm and inviting space with a really nice bar. The wait staff was very pleasant and very professional and did not rush us. Had excellent Bloody Marys to start off brunch. All entrees were served promptly and all came hot. The pesto stone peach and tomato salad was very good, best pesto I have ever had, it was more of a pistou. The whole afternoon was so refreshing and really made the weekend.

My wife and I really enjoyed Red Bird this past Saturday evening. The food was very good and served hot and fresh. My wife had the duck and I had the halibut. My wife and I both have duck and/or halibut a lot when we go out, so we have a broad base of comparison for each dish. I would say both entrees were very good, but not the best I've had in LA.

What really stood out for us was the excellent service and the ambiance. We had no less than five of the waitstaff checking on our table, but doing so without bothering us. Really excellent service, and my wife and I have been to many of the so-called finest places. The service here was literally at the very top.

I would definitely recommend this to a friend. If I were to choose an occasion best suited for this restaurant, I would say romantic date. It's a very nice place to bring your favorite woman/man and it's sure to impress.

Brunch/lunch before matinee at the theater. Unfortunately drinks took longer to arrive, so we had cocktails along with our entrees. Some of our eggs were not cooked through, whites watery. Flavors were delectable. The waffle was outstanding, crispy on the outside as it was meant to be.

Really a delight. Our seating was at 5:15 so we got to be there for the when the roof rolled back to reveal the sky, a treat. The menu is set up for each person to select a starter (appetizer or salad), then for the table to share larger main courses that serve 2 to 4. For main course we had crispy sea bass in a tamarind fish sauce. Brilliant. We were three, so had Burrata, Avocado Salad and Lamb Belly for starters, all very good but my Avocado Salad was the best. Our waiter was delightful and the wait staff were helpful without being intrusive. The entire ambiance of restaurant contributed to a very pleasurable experience. We will be back.

I’ve been there 3 times and last time I was there. We only (my friend and I) ordered 3 appetizers and 4 glasses of wine. The waiter kept coming to ask us if we wanted to order an entree we told him we were still working on our appetizers. The manager was spying on us from across the room behind a big plant waiting for us to order an entree! Like really???!!!! I made reservation for 645 pm. I got theere at 625. Apparently it was a crime not to order an entree, we were consuming anyway!!! We didn’t enjoy our food at all, the waiter and the manager kept coming like trying to get us to hurry! Horrible service, never coming back!

Beautiful room. Interesting drinks. Just did not taste the value for what our bill came to. We had sardines which were unremarkable- bland flavor and texture. Same with the hamachi. Truffle bucottini was best dish. I had a $50 pork chop which was as they told me it would be, enough for 2, but it was no better than other restaurants where I have had say Nieman Ranch pork chops. Another person had the duck, tasty but not rendered the way I prefer it with crispy skin and thin layer of fat. Scallops were tasty as was the side. I had a tequila drink that was $24. It was OK. As far as I know, nothing was prepared improperly, dishes just didn't meet up with the price. Maybe I just don't get out enough.

Service was very good- attentive, knowledgeable, and prompt.

So very pleasant experience but not for the cost. I guess if you are really wealthy or have a nice business expense account, you overlook these things in favor of the company and the nice room. I might recommend it for drink if you have nearby event.

I had the modern Mary drink and it was the best Bloody Mary I’ve ever had. Our waiter was top notch and was awesome at recommending things. I hope I can come back again some time!

I gave one star overall because the wait staff and bartender were not up to par. I don’t normally give such a low rating but this place was all wrong. I liked the food but that was it. In succession, the waiter we first had left his shift and the second waitress was not attentive. She seemed drowsy. Then the bartender did not mix my drink when he remade it. They just poured some mixer in my glass to make it sweeter. Lastly, the atmosphere was ruined by the staff starting to put away chairs and clean. You NEVER clean while people are dining
I was shocked that some things were in line with fine dining and other things were ghetto
