Fantastic food and wine. We loved our waiter, Dane and even got a private tour of the former church and gardens from the sommelier, Charles.

The place is cozy, beautiful and warm, need to crank that ac a little bit. Polite front desk and attentive servers. Everything we had was good until I got my steak, that was super salty and chewy.

Iv always enjoyed the food and service, however this last time both have gone down. Especially service. Servers was not enthusiastic or excited to be there. Didn’t know what to recommend. Wine man wasn’t to helpful either. He was new. Not the original guy. I guess the best don’t last for long

I will return again and again. Food was Fabulous. We were generally surprised by the gracious portion on the Wattle Pork. Not only was very good but plenty of food. Compliments on the Spanish Octopus and the beet salad. Owners would not like me to tell you that the Wattle Pork was plenty for Two.

Loved the food, the room, and Dane our server was really a great guide through the experience. The scallops were by far and away the best I’ve ever had and we skipped dessert and coffee to be able to continue to savor their flavor. The Soft shell crab was crunchy and tasty and the agnolotti in basil sauce was remarkable. Will eat there again.

Also, unless you look up you don’t realize it’s outdoor dining since you’re outside the old rectory building with structures all around. Fabulous setting! It was our anniversary.

I’ve long considered Redbird to be my favorite LA restaurant. The building that houses the restaurant is cool with the patio seating. The service is always friendly & professional. The bartenders are knowledgeable and accommodating with drink requests.

The food is really good. I can’t think of a menu item I haven’t throughly enjoyed(although I enjoyed the previous lamb belly plate better than the current version).

The main dishes are excellent. The pork chop is my favorite but the duck, ribeye, halibut & lamb are all exceptional.

However, with all that being said, I’ve come to realize the smaller plates are indeed, quite small & overpriced. They are delicious but are of awkward sharing size if in a party greater than 2 people.

Great place to visit if you’re in Downtown LA. They were very accommodating to our group and we were seated promptly so we would not be late to our opera even one person from our group was running late. Great service and food was delicious. We tried burrata, beet salad, rabbit pasta, salmon, and scallops. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented. They have big vine lost and chose great bottle of champagne. Will definitely go back someday.

It was the first time for me at Brunch. I’m always there at dinner. But, this is not going to be the last time. It was fantastic. I had the Duck Confit Chilaquiles, my friend had the scramble with chorizo and we all shared the blueberry ricotta pancakes. It was all fantastic.

Redbird is great! Just be ready though, it’s got a real trendy vibe. Almost a 60s and 70s furniture meets modern design. Very clean look. The drinks are awesome, and not watered down at all! The booth we sat in was cozy and intimate. Service is on another level! Waiters and waitresses constantly gliding everywhere! They are constantly moving around, changing plates, and silverware, filling water, and answering any questions you have! Super nice people that know the cuisine! It’s kinda pricey but the food there is truly next level! Just off Main st. On 2nd in DTLA. There’s lots of parking near by! $5-$10 This place is a must, my wife and i loved it!

Maybe. Interesting and pleasant room, food very good, cocktails and wine very good. May be disappointed with the service. They got the reservation time wrong even after confirming by phone but we were seated well. We did not receive the welcome rose champagne drink as other tables did. The food came mostly all at once and the table top was very small. If you don't mind indifference you'll be OK. I must say, however, the support servers were excellent.
