The food is delicious as always, but the service leaves a bit to be desired. I understand this is a popular place, but I don’t appreciate being rushed along. Bussers in particular needn’t take my plate before I have finished my food if they haven’t asked if I’m done. This is my second time here and the second time this has happened. I guarantee you I’m not wasting any of a $16 piece of French toast!

Additionally, if I haven’t asked for my bill, please don’t bring it. Declining dessert doesn’t mean bring my check. I could want something else.

At any rate, I’d certainly return for the food, and hope for improved service.

We had brunch at Redbird and found the location and the interior lovely. Our server was very attentive and helpful - a real plus for the restaurant. Our food came out quickly. We ordered scones for appetizer, two main dishes and a dessert. The scone was okay. The main dishes were showstopper beautiful and delicious. The dessert was very small. All in all, a good brunch. A bit overpriced.

Amazing experience, service was impeccable! If the owner/staff reads this we truly mean it, from the hostess, bartender, to our server, everyone was extremely kind, detailed and thorough. We sat outside and they gave us blankets as it was a bit chilly, food quality was delicious, drinks tasted great, I’d love to come back.

Everything seemed rushed, and for the price of the 3 course meal I was very disappointed. In addition to that, the service was terrible. We had better service waiting at the bar. Very, very disappointed.

The restaurant itself is beautiful. That being said we sat in the "outdoor" seating and my chair was at least 2-3 inches lower than my date on the "bench" seat. That was, at best, weird. Prix fix was $125 per and we had 2 drinks each...which were apparently $25 each since the bill was $350. Add tip and valet you have a $430 dinner. Was it good? Yes. Food was fabulous and we weren't ruched at all...but that's very pricey for what it is. On another note...we had a good time.

Everything about our experience was impeccable. We had a slight issue with one of our main courses but the staff handled our concern with utmost care and diligence, we really could not have asked for a better response. This was one our finest meals and our server was exceptionally attentive. All this, and the ambience was perfect for our romantic Valentine’s eve date night. We will be back for sure!

Such an amazing experience! The service was so great, the manager brought over some champagne because he know we were celebrating a birthday. The food was terrific, still craving the shishito peppers. I’m a vegetarian and they have many options

More than solid service and a delightful menu. The structure of the menu offerings - choices formultiple columns - is designed to run up a significant total bill.

Went for brunch. Had the egg sandwich and duck confit chiliquiles which were out of this world. Can’t wait until we are back in LA so we can come for dinner.

We came to Redbird to celebrate my birthday. The atmosphere was very inviting and the staff members were lovely. I enjoyed the menu and as always, I appreciate any restaurant that has a rotating menu. My overall experience was great! I recommend this place.

Redbird was excellent. The food was wonderful and the service was friendly and attentive. My only gripe would be how close the tables are to each other. Not that we were trying to listen, but the people next to you are so close that we were intimately involved in our neighbors conversations.

Ordered shrimp and grits. Superb shrimp !
Grits lumpy and needed salt.
Commented on that to the server and they comped my meal.
I was extremely impressed and will go back again!
Kudos for service.
Fun and trendy!

The pork and burrata was incredible. And robert the manager was especially nice.....gave me and my date a peek at the ballroom next door. A very gracious individual. And a very elegant place. Highly recommended...both for the food and the experience. And the drinks are wonderful.

Redbird truly excels not only for its perfectly executed food, but its incredible staff. As an avid eater and recent transplant from NYC, I can confidently say that I've eaten out quite a bit, and the service here is truly unmatched. Whether it's brunch or dinner, there are no corners cut here.

Beautiful space, great service, delicious food and thoughtful touches. One guest at our table does not imbibe and when amuse bouche were brought to the table, a non-alcoholic one was prepared for them without us even asking.

Do not come here if you’re hungry or in any sort of a hurry. Had a 12:30 reservation but didn’t get seated until 1:20 (I get it, that happens, but how about a heads up at least when we check in that it’ll be almost an hour!?). After getting seated, the drinks took another 20 minutes. When we eventually ordered food, at least that came at a reasonable pace. The food and drinks were delicious, but the price and portion size were waaaay out of whack.

Food was fantastic! One of the best meals in the past year. Dishes were creative. The wild boar and the duck were delicious. The avocado salad was a highlight and turned out to be perfect for sharing. Ambiance and service were unparalleled. I can’t wait to return!

Second time dining at Redbird, this time for DineLA 2020 Winter restaurant week. Redbird is a lovely fine dining establishment that can get a little pricey; their DineLA menu is one of the best deals you can get for superior quality in food, service, and ambience!

My table enjoyed a Cavatelli dish and Lobster Chawanmushi for first course - both 5/5 for taste and presentation

Day Boat Scallops and Ribeye cap for the second course. Scallops - 4/5 for firmness and flavor; Ribeye Cap - 4/5 for flavor and accompaniments. I ordered medium and the cook seemed more medium rare. Still, very good!

Olive oil cake for dessert! - 3.5/5; nothing extra special about the cake. I will say that the blood orange sorbet was phenomenal and would make this selection a 4 as the headliner over the accompaniment.
