Great spot just wish their were more gluten free options. Bloody Mary was terrific.
The food was good but nothing special. Beer selection was very limited. We were seated at a table for two directly next to the stairs so it felt as though we were in everyone’s way.
The food was very tasty, but the place was very loud.
I enjoyed the tender, tasty Amish half chicken. Just great.
Great for a gathering!
Lovely bird-themed meal in Mt Vernon residential section of DC, short walk from Morrison-Clark hotel. Indian style Duck meatball appetizer was inventive and delicious. Really enjoyed the schnitzel and spaetzel dish. If in the neighborhood, definitely worth checking out. Nice wine list
Went here for the first time last Sunday and it was amazing. The restaurant is small, so definitely have a reservation but the food was super tasty and the inside was super cute.
Such a cute little place. Not big on space but big on flavor. I’m so glad I came to visit. Brunch was amazing. I couldn’t choose just one item so I picked 3. Try it and you’ll love it!
Dinner was wonderful! We each tried one of their house cocktails. I had the last tweet and my friend had the mule on the roost, both were great but hers came in a fun parrot glass. For apps we had the butternut squash hummus and then for dinner we had the buttermilk fried chicken and duck confit. We ate every last bit! I would highly recommend a visit here if you haven't been! Thank you for a great dinner and good service (shoutout to Asia for her great menu recommendations!)
Girlfriend and I went for brunch. Waited a few minutes for my table at the bar. The bartender was very nice. Once seated, I ended up ordering the chicken and waffles. They were amazing. The brussel sprouts, not so m. Service at the table was a little slow but I would return.
The service was excellent. The wine was great. I didn't feel that the food was adequately seasoned. For example, our wings had great flavor on the coating but the meat of the chicken was bland. It was a shame because everything else - including the location - was great.
Great casual dining food was delicious good wine selection as well
Southern cooking at its best in the Northeast !!! Thanks for a wonderful time. Great staff !
I went to brunch with a couple friends and a baby. Service was friendly, particularly about getting our group set up with a high chair and explained the menu well, but our check was mixed up with the adjacent table at the end of the meal and overall things just seemed a little hectic. There were some weird issues with table extras: when we ordered coffee, the server didn't bring sweetener until we asked and she grabbed a container off the adjacent table. Same with salt and pepper, there wasn't any at our table and they brought it from another table when we asked. The food was ok, I had an omelette that hadn't been described as containing broccoli in the menu but half the filling was broccoli upon receipt. My husband's fried chicken benedict was also decent but a bit bland.
Chicken & Waffles were delicious. Bloody Mary and Moscow Mueller were only OK.
Fantastic service and a Birthday dessert on the house.
Traveled to DC for fun with friends and family!
The staff was so friendly and the food was amazing. They brought out our appetizers quickly, we had the deviled eggs and hummus, I would recommend both. The food was taking a little longer than expected so they brought out some more food to hold us over which was also very good. The mains were also high quality and I would definitely come back here for another date or to get some great food. Thanks again!
The food was delicious
Lovely little quaint and cozy restaurant with great tasty food. Friendly service with a great vibe.
I went to The Bird for Labor Day weekend brunch. The only availability was at 3:15, but I arrived at 3 and they had a table available immediately which was nice. Brunch hours are very long so it’s good for those who like to sleep in. The $15 bottomless mimosas are only available on Fridays which is a little misleading when they advertise for brunch. Nevertheless, the carafe is $30 (we did not finish) and plenty for two so you end up paying the same amount anyway. The drinks were very strong, kind of wish there was more juice flavor so it does get you quite tipsy. The server and staff were all very welcoming and nice. Food was pretty good with a decent selection on the menu for those with simple tastes as well as more “exotic” options for foodies. Overall, I enjoyed it. The place is nice and quaint- would go again!
The Bird was very fun! Definitely a place to splurge on food, albeit unhealthy, very TASTY food. Highly recommend the biscuits and honey butter, and the fried chicken.
The paella was amazing
Based on advertisements and marketing (Instagram, Facebook, posters, write ups in other newsletters) my entire party and I thought The Bird was doing bottomless brunch all weekend. Once we were seated we were told bottomless was only Friday. It was very disappointing and we felt we had been purposefully mislead by the advertising. We looked at the social media accounts and poster outside of the restaurant and confirmed they are unclear in the messaging.
Plenty of room for our group of 7 for a celebratory brunch. The waitress was fun, personable and knew the menu quite well. Just about everyone in our group was happy with their meal. One criticism was there didn't seem to be enough chicken white meat options (i.e., perhaps make the chicken/waffle dish white meat). Nice decor and personable staff.
As the name implies, meat from various types of birds is a specialty of this restaurant, and the duck and chicken my friends and I ate were outstanding. Additionally, the service was excellent and made the experience even better.
As we were on holiday in the USA, we decided to start our holiday with an American tradition - brunch. The Bird has great brunch reviews and we love fried chicken, so it was an easy choice. We had the chicken & waffle, wings and biscuits with chicken gravy. Yummy. Thanks also to Keeli, our server for her food recommendations for later on in our trip
Despite numerous glowing reviews were disappointed in both the service and the food. We chose a beautiful night and had a reservation. There were many empty tables outside but we were still made to wait in the bar for 15 minutes. We ordered four appetizers to ensure we could be served quickly but after waiting 20 minutes not even one of the dishes had arrived. We complained and the manager comped the meal and gave us a gift card for their restaurant group which was very generous. The dishes that did arrive were bland, stale and flavorless.
I went for brunch last week. I asked the waiter what she would recommend as the best for brunch. She recommended the chicken and waffles and the breakfast tacos. I ended up ordering the chicken and the waffles. When the food comes out, it looks very presentable and tasty. However, once you cut into it, it looks like the chicken was sitting in oil for a while. Plus, the breading on the chicken had no flavor, what-so-ever; it was very bland. It was so bland that I could've went in the back and cook my own food for myself. Also, the chicken did not seem like it was fully cooked in certain areas, which made me order another side to fulfill the purpose of the breakfast, but I did not finish the chicken. I would not recommend the chicken and waffles to anyone unless they like bland flavor of chicken or like oily chicken. This would be the place for them.
I’ll definitely be visiting again! Chris is a delightful waiter and deserves kudos for making this dining experience so delectable! He was patient, humorous, and had good recommendations (the fried chicken and watermelon salad are on point!). He was also not pushy and very respectful. 👌🏻
We arrived early- around 6- and the place was empty, but quickly filled by 7pm. The whiskey cocktail I had was outstanding; the curry meatball appetizers were tasty; the chicken wings app left a little to be desired-- perfectly cooked, but flavor was uninspired; the paella entree tasted great but was closer to a gumbo texture than my idea of paella; the cornish hen, like the chicken wings, was cooked perfectly but flavor was unremarkable. Overall good ambiance and service, so nothing to complain about. Just not a place to rave about.
The whole concept is creative, everything is bird themed. The meals were really tasty, the drinks were made well and also had creative names! The staff were really friendly and attentive. The aesthetic of the whole place was also really cool and cozy. Highly recommend for any occasion, just a dinner out, group, or date, it's perfect for anything.
Great restaurant. Good food, friendly service, very accommodating of some last minute changes to a large party. I will definitely be back!
we were looking for a great brunch place in DC that had chicken and waffles. they were awesome, cute little place. The breakfast tacos were also great.
The food was wonderful! Loved that even the plates were egg shaped - totally on theme! Highly recommend the fried chicken Benedict for brunch!
Our server seemed pretty overwhelmed and therefore service was slow and things were forgotten from the order. The drinks were overpriced and tiny! Place was so loud, could barely hear people talking across from us. Food was good, but not great and we were satisfied with the prices and portions offered for the Restaraunt Week menu.
Food is truly fantastic. Service however, is very poor. Slow and disorganized
Delicious food, wine, and cocktails on a very cute terrace. Great experience. Will be back.
Service here was fantastic. Our favorites were hands-down the duck meatballs and the pecan waffle for desert. The waffle is just perfect by itself. We will definitely be coming back to try brunch here!
I went for brunch and the food was amazing! I had the fried chicken eggs benedict. Also our server was very friendly and tentative.
