I've read a couple of reviews before we headed to the restaurant. It was booked as part of a holiday celebration and high on the list for many of those who were based in SF. We were a party of 6, had some shared food allergies and vegetarian restrictions to contend with and shared with the restaurant pre-arrival. I'm aligned... More

This is a fantastic restaurant although very hard to get into. Reservations are hard to make so if you intend to go to San Fran and want to experience one of the cities coolest restaurants then book in advance. If you decide to take a chance they do take walk ins but be prepared to wait. The food is yum... More

What can I say about State Bird Provisions? Well, I’ll start by stating that it is “different.” Though I had read several reviews, nothing quit prepared me for how different it is. First, when we arrived for our opening seating, there was a line that had formed already, up Fillmore, wrapping around to Geary St. I walked around the line,... More

Festive atmosphere with friendly waiters running around pushing food trolleys or showing trays of dishes, like in an old-style dim sum restaurant. We had the 17-course menu. For me it was kind of hit-and-miss. Some dishes are very good, like the multi-texture fried rice (which reminds us of Persian tahdig or Vietnamese cơm niêu), or the lamb 'piccata'. Some are... More

One of the most memorable meals I've had in recent times. Often, when places are so hyped up, they end up being disappointing, but not this one. Flavoursome, interesting food and a fun experience with their yumcha style service concept. Excellent vegetarian options both on the printed menu and circulating around straight from the kitchen - I particularly loved the... More

We booked well in advance so we could get a favorable reservation on a Friday evening. We arrived and still waited for approx. 15 minutes which was no big deal. We were seated and were prompted served by Daniel who made an extra effort to make us comfortable with the menu, the cart approach, etc. We had two gluten free... More

Coming from NOLA, my wife and I know a good meal when we taste one. If I had to use one word to describe our experience it would be INTENSE. Every flavor was bold and unique. The service was perfect! We ate at the chefs counter and got a hands on look at the operation. Get your reservation early. Pork... More

First of all, make a reservation plenty in advance or plan to get there well before they open and wait at the door. Pretty much as soon as you sit down, the carts roll through offering small plates of fresh seasonal fare. Some of it is Asian-inspired but not all. We had everything from sea urchin tostadas to grilled octopus... More

The concept is great and the food is very good although it is a bit fussy for the venue and trolley concept. The food comes around non-stop and each waiter tells you all the details of every dish making it hard to have a conversation. You must be ready to focus on the experience and less on your group.

Tried State Bird Provisions with my adult children on a recent visit and loved it. They reserve about one third of seating for walk ins. Folks to start lining up nearly an hour before the restaurant opens to get those seats. While in line, State Bird staff brought out trays of hot-spiced cider in glass cups. The taste sensations begin... More
