    This was a special evening bec. I flew into San Francisco to be with my adult kids. We sat outside and although a bit cold at first, the heat lamps changed everything There were 4 of us and we did order a bit more than necessary. The presentation of the food was excellent and each dish had a special unique taste. Very pricey but worth it.

    Very noisy and some of the dishes were memorable for being the worst dishes in my life. For example, the raw oysters were surrounded by a terrible hot sauce, the trout was beyond salty, some other seafood, purported to be a tartare was a horrendously over-spiced porridge, the pate (the only palatable savory) had its taste disguised when applying it on the accompanying cloyingly sweet brioche. Only good tasting item was the potato chips.

    Been to State Bird about a half dozen times, and while the quality has never been that consistent this meal was off a cliff. It's nice to be able to try so many things given the style of cuisine, and I've been conditioned to expect a range of quality from maybe one miss to a few so-so to a few really great offerings. Last night, the "good dishes" were mediocre, and the lesser ones were downright bad. Punctuated by a main dish that was anchored by some sort of gnocchi like balls with an unusual flour that sounded intriguing. Said balls were like pencil erasers. Mind boggling that ANY diner could find anything to like in them. You'd think the server would have noted that we cleaned the plate (great corn elements and a slightly sweet black sauce underneath everything) but beyond the one ball each of us tried left all the balls uneaten. But no, he sucked too!

    Fantastic if slightly pricey food. Server had good attitude but service was rushed as carts came around a bit too fast to enjoy each dish. Had to ask to order wine.

    We were excited to try State Bird Provisions and left disappointed. The food was extremely underwhelming, with a consistent lack of flavor and texture. The table side service was too fast paced and limits your ability to relax and enjoy. We also didn’t care for shared seating with strangers. For a Michelin star rated restaurant they should do much, much better. Would not recommend.

    I really wanted to love this restaurant. Especially after finding out it won a Michelin star. But after trying everything I wasn’t impressed. The food felt really greasy and carby. (Lots of fried, breaded and savory food) which I like but not for most of the courses… The restaurant had a nice modern vibe and the service was good. But the food wasn’t nothing crazy. It was good not wow. It’s a one time experience for me.

    The food was very good, some things were over the top in flavor profile and concept, others were a little limp. The noise level is LOUD but the servers were all very friendly, albeit slow. We had already eaten 3 small Dim Sum style dishes before our wine/drinks ever came out. We'll be back for sure, it was very good.

    Service here was great. We had a celiac in our party and they knew every dish he could or could not have, or which could be modified. Everything we had tasted so good. Definitely recommend the state bird, the run cake, and the world peace milk drink.

    Always delicious. The staff is not always nice to everyone. Some of them are fantastic. Some are judgmental jerks. Maybe they’re tired. IDK. But the cronyism is clear. Its a “cool kids” place according to the way the staff acts. That aside, the food is magnificent. Every time. Like nothing you have ever had. Because the carts/tray/dim sum is dependent on the staff not ignoring your table, you may end up eating “out of order” if you aren’t deemed a cool kid. Some app like dishes will come after some main like dishes. But, in the end it does not matter to me. Its that delicious. I would one day love to get good - even great- service here, but I’ll come regardless.

    I liked that They Are quite experimental when it comes to the food. A lot of the serving were very good, and some to Our surprise as the combinations were quite unusual. There were however disses that did not hit the mark. I however do not understand why State Bird Provisions has a michelin star. The service was not attentive enough, the bokse level was at a level were it was hard to talk and the level of the food was a little inconsistent. For a michelin star the pricing of the food was however low so when it comes to value for money it was still ok.

    Never disappoint. This is my second time to dine at this place, service, food and vibe are all excellent. We were seated right away with our reservation and they gave us the ‘nest’ as it was our anniversary. So cozy - love it ! Our favorites were peaches, oyster, potato chips with trout spread, and the dessert - butter cake with rum and chocolate mousse. Doesn’t mean the other 10 items weren’t good. They are all delicious. What a memorable night. 😌 thank u !

    Our party of 4 first visit. The line starts at 5 for 5:30 pm reservation (first batch of customer) Our group had 1. Hog Island Oyster 2. Smoked trout allium Chip n Dip 3. Duck liver mousse and almond financiers 4. Steamed egg tofu (forgot to take picture of this) 5. Heirloom tomato bay shrimp 6. Garlic bread burrata & 7 pepper spice 7. Smoked ham toast shiitakes 8. State bird with provisions (forgot to take picture of this) 9. World peace peanut muscovado milk (for dessert) Everything is as good as the reviews. Our personal favorites are no 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, and 9 We also like how laid back and unpretentious the place is. Service is excellent. Good wine selection. Will definitely go back.

    The food is fantastic especially the small plates (dim sum style) that circulate. The wine list is very nice. The servers are friendly. The "music" (more like noise) is so loud you have to shout to hear anyone at your table which of course makes the whole place just incredibly noisy and loud. If it weren't for the noise I would rate this 5 stars.

    Kaitlin is a fantastic server! Outside on the patio is actually not very loud at all, even though the street is behind you. However, you do not have the dim sum cart rolling around; you just order from the menu card.

    Still a favorite, but not quite as amazing as past visits. Service was slower and longer waits between carts…. Most dishes still surprising and tasty, but the yuba amatriciana was chewy and way too vinegary. Loved the egg custard cube, though. Desserts remain unique and beautifully presented.
