Redbird - Los Angeles
Book your next event with us
Hostess’s were a bit befuddled and confused. Two reservations with the same last name seemed a bit to much for them to handle for some reason.
Redbird has been consistently good since it's opening. The setting is lovely and menu quite innovative and seasonal. Wine choices are very interesting and over a good range of prices.
Why this restaurant doesn't have a Michelin star escapes me. Delicious, intelligent, sophisticated food consistently, always, with a challenging cocktail and wine program to go with the food. Braised lamb belly and day boat scallops this time as I continue to eat my way through the dinner menu.
Brunch was very good, the Basque eggs were a little spicy. The way the DIY Mimosa was served was refreshing; with a separation of sparkling wine and the orange juice. The noise level was a little high.
Only complain was our server. Not attentive at all seemed like he was in space but other than that thumbs up
We had brunch on a Sunday to celebrate my birthday. The decor and overall ambience of the restaurant was like an oasis in a gritty city. You couldn’t tell from the building exterior what awaits inside.
We ordered the duck chilaquiles (the table’s favorite dish), the crab congee (good, but not quite the congee flavor we were expecting), and the French toast. All were delicious, but definitely on the pricey side.
So I feel that this restaurant is suitable for special occasions & dates, but not really for everyday dining.
What a beautiful venue. The food was spot on and the service was stellar. I am definitely returning again!
The service and the food were absolutely phenomenal. The server asked up front if we needed to be finished eating by a certain time, which we did. We were able to complete our meal without feeling rushed and made it to our event on time.
Cannot wait to go back. Would recommend Redbird to everyone.
Cozy restaurant. The food is great. The service is excellent. I am already planning on my next visit.
Beautiful space with open roof. A little drafty would be the only complaint. The swordfish was top notch, as was the massive pork chop! Had an excellent Gamay along with the meal...
Every detail of this restaurant is stunning. The atmosphere, service, drinks, and food are all tied for being the most amazing part of coming here. A can’t miss DTLA dining spot!
love the setting, food was ok but my husbands bar tender cockatil....
The food was okay but not on par with other comparable nearby restaurants. We ordered the medium rare rib eye but it came cold and pre-sliced, so it was cold and dry and not worth the $115. Drinks were good. The service was polite but slow for how not busy the place was. Overall I won’t return, as I can spend the same amount at a restaurant like otium except I’d get much better food and service. I really wanted to like it but I was disappointed.
Food was only average for the price point.
Service was outstanding. The venue is comfortable and not noisy. Food was delicious and interesting. The cloth bags had some bread items that was a little different and I wish I had the recipe. They were scrumptious.
Good restaurant with really good food. The staff’s attention to detail was well above average. Nice place.
Absolutely the saltiest food I've had in years. Everything, and I mean everything, was oversalted. The peppers, the scallops, the meat. It was too much. I came home and drank a gallon of water. It is so absurdly overpriced and the fact that they dumped a salt mine on the food just made it a terrible experience.
Cocktails & food were very good, service, was slow. Very expensive
Waiter was very nice,
Overall we are not impressed with the food. It's nothing out of the ordinary. Whatever they offer there, you can always find it somewhere else. They do not have a signature dish. On top of that, the portion is small.
The french fries and potato chips that came as a side with the entree were all too greasy.
The only good element was the ambiance.
Staff and service was amazing. Very accommodating.
We ordered duck and scallop, the duck was really good, but the scallop and vegetable on the side were very salty...
Such an inventive and successful menu. All the entrees have a fascinating array of ingredients and sides, and they all work beautifully. Two of our group had the rabbit pasta, and two had the duck. Both excellent. And atrium space is gorgeous! Noise level is the only downside. We'll be back.
Go to place for good selection of drinks and tasty food.
Once again - amazingly consistent and one of the best restaurants in Los Angeles.
The Redbird is a wonderful restaurant in DTLA. The iconic location is a great place to dine for any occasion, but we especially enjoy taking out of town guest to this restaurant. The food quality, preparation and presentation is consistently fantastic. The menu is perfectly designed for sharing so that you and your guests have the opportunity to taste and enjoy the many delicious items on the menu! We also love the fact that even though you order all items at once you are allowed to set the pace for your dining. Yes you can go here before a show, but the best experience is to plan on this being an entire evenings outing, good food, good conversation with friends and great drinks. What more could you ask for?! We also find that we end up with the best wine selection if we enlist the assistance of the sommelier. He or she knows the dishes we ordered, we set the limits on price range and then describe the characteristics we like most in a wine and the sommelier has never failed to recommend a wine that was not a big hit!
The menu wasn't as thorough as I wanted to really understand what i was getting but wow everything was spectacular.
This is a most beautiful dining venue, and the food is exquisite. Our family was there on a warm September evening, and as we were eating dessert the overhead covering pulled away to expose a a lovely twilight. The service here is friendly and inviting. Thank you.
A perfect evening! Took my girlfriend out for her birthday and couldn’t have had a better experience. All of the staff was very friendly/attentive and the food was awesome!
This is the 3rd time we've dined at Redbird. The first 2 times were 5-star across the board. Unfortunately, this visit did not measure up to our previous experiences. It was so-so. One person in our party said they wouldn't return, but I'm going to chalk it up to an off night. There was a wedding at their neighboring venue and they got slammed with early arriving guests for a 600-person wedding. It was insane and probably put them off their game in the service but they need to step it up. Too many fantastic options now in DTLA for just "good."
Amazing staff, amazing service, amazing and creative menu. Favorite in LA!
This was our first time having brunch at Redbird, although we have dined here for dinner a few times. I had the Congee, which was outstanding. The crab, corn, grits, egg all worked perfectly together. It's pretty rich and savory and would be great to share although it's not a huge portion. My BF and I shared one blueberry pancake which was delicious and also huge. He had the Basque baked eggs which he loved. It was also quite large and would be great to share. Both had bloody mary's. A plus!
Great service! We started with a cocktail at the bar with Christian? (I think that was his name) and he whipped up a bartenders choice drink for us which was amazing. Josh, their Sommelier, helped me decide between two bottles that paired amazing with all the food we ordered. Overall, fantastic!
We were celebrating my niece’s marriage. Sommelier provides excellent assistance in picking out the champagne. All the food was outstanding. Service was impeccable. A $500 night for the three of us with champagne and drinks but everything was perfect.
Amazing experience and wonderful restaurant!
Took my nephew and his wife who were visiting from out of state for brunch and was disappointed. No bread served at brunch. He had the soft shell crab sandwich which, actually was more bread than anything else. His wife had scrambled eggs with avocado ( she has food restrictions) and I had the Spanish eggs with chorizo and bacon which was ok. Overall, the place is very pretty and the service very good but the food and it’s presentation are nothing to write home about.
I must not be an adventurous enough eater, but wasn't thrilled with the food options. There wasn't much vegetarian, and not a chicken dish on the entire menu. Pork face was, however, an option! There was also a dessert with celery. Eek. I'm all for creative dishes but none of the menu items really appealed to me at all. There are similarly priced and creative restaurants that I LOVE (Tasting Kitchen, Gjelina, Osteria Mozza, etc) but Redbird isn't somewhere I'd visit again. I also feel like they have too many people visiting your table. The waitstaff is excellent and I appreciate their work, but for a romantic dinner I prefer not to have a different person at my table every 5 minutes lighting candles/filling water/asking how the food tastes/wiping crumbs/etc. Attentive service is one thing but it was disruptive. Would be a fun place for group dining or for drinks/apps but didn't love it for a romantic dinner.
Great place - love to come here every now and then. Always something new on the Menu. Great atmosphere sitting in the patio.
