Aimed at bringing street food to life, the Bird & The Bottle in Santa Rosa, CA is the end result of a pair of award-winning restaurateurs looking to blend a surprising array of flavors. Asian, American South, East Coast, Jewish and other cuisines have been combined to create an unforgettable menu.

The menu at Bird & The Bottle features cocktails and an extensive wine list, and foods range from nibbles to larger plates. Everything has been chosen to pair well, and options include seafood favorites, poultry classics like matzo ball soup but also Korean BBQ chicken. There is a vegetarian menu with everything from fried cheese curds to smoked beets, but there are also pork and beef choices in abundance. A visit to Bird & The Bottle has to finish up with a dessert, and the "goo goo pie in another jar" is a must try.

We really love the B and B. My favorites are the smokey poke and the kale salad as well as the duck. My partner's used to be the Mac and cheese but sadly it was markedly different this time around. Whereas usually the sauce is creamy and rich- this time it was textured and almost curdled. The flavor was off and whereas the times before the meat was chopped and spread nicely throughout, this time it was an undercooked piece of meat just laying on the top. The desserts were good but not off the charts. They were completely acceptable for sure, but in comparison to the salads, duck and poke that were out of this world, the others didn't blow my mind. The service was perfect and friendly and fast. We were given a lovely table and our waitress was the perfect blend of friendly, attentive and allowed us to have our own personal outing. We will definitely return, but please return back the perfection that was the old mac n cheese. Oh and please please get an espresso machine :) Thanks! It's nice to have a spot that delivers a happy palate after every visit :)

I made this reservation for my husband and I at least 2 weeks prior to Valentine's Day and requested a "quiet table". We are a couple that are chronically early for reservations, so we weren't surprised when the host asked us to wait for our table to be prepared. We waited for about 10 minutes and when we were shown to our table we were surprised to find that it was the empty table we'd been staring at for the 10 minutes; in addition, we were seated across from a group w/ a young child allowed to run around the table while the family took flash photos. We had brought our own wine and placed it on the table where another 10 minutes passed before our waiter arrived to open the bottle of wine and take our dinner order (since we had sat there for awhile, we were ready to order after getting a few questions about the menu answered). The low point came when our first dish arrived (5 wood grilled gulf prawns). The shrimp was IMPOSSIBLE TO PEEL and with each attempt most of the meat stayed stuck to the shell. I notified our waitress who came over to the table, told us we should have gotten wet wipes w/ our dish and proceeded to talk me through trying to get any substantial meat out of our last remaining prawn...no success. I was so frustrated! What woman wants to get dressed up to take her husband out to dinner and FIGHT HER FOOD w/ the potential of RUINING HER OUTFIT in the process?!? Btw, we never received wet wipes (or bibs) either. Our waitress concluded our shrimp was overcooked and we weren't charged. We had also ordered the HOT LOCAL DUNGENESS CRAB which also arrived sans wet wipes w/ a crab cracker...we didn't dare try to eat it because it's impossible to get butter/oil out of clothing. Definitely a dish that's messy and not very shareable, OR NEAT. Maybe we just feel that when we pay a lot of money to go out to dinner we want to AVOID THE MESS. The winner dishes were the octopus, brussel sprouts and carrot cake.

What an amazing brunch!!! 10/10 would recommend their French toast it is to die for! Their whole menu is fantastic especially the chicken and waffles and steak and eggs! Highly recommend for a weekend brunch that’s trendy but low key! You won’t regret it!

On this visit we felt for a birthday gathering we were placed back by the restrooms and it felt very rushed to turn our table half way through. Dishes removed a bit too soon giving us not a lot of time to relax prior to dessert decisions and though our server was polite it all in all felt mediocre service. Food was ok but the prawns no one cared for. This was our third visit and I must say that I’m not too excited about going again considering the cost and the above comments. Thank you however for the birthday dessert.

My friend and I had dinner on a Friday evening at 6:30. They had a full house! We were seated within 2 minutes of arriving and received excellent service throughout our meal. We were pleased to learn they serve shared plates so we got to order a few different menu items to share. The variety of choices would suit most every diner. The noise level was pretty intense for us. We were seated at a great little table upstairs by the window. It was cozy and delicious and we are sure to return.

Food was a good, not awesome as I was expecting. Left a little room for more taste, well presented. Server was great, engaging and friendly. The drinks were tasty and well balanced. However, maybe the menu it a little too heavy on shrubs/drinking vinegar. A couple of up dated classics would have been nice. The last point, we sat by a window which normally would have been nice..... but it was cold and drafty.
All this said, we will be back for sure!

Delicious, but disappointed every dish was so rich. The veggies had sugar added (carrots)...I think the waiter should let you know bc I definitely did not want sugar on my vegetables.
We were a party of two, hoping for a nice intimate evening, but seated upstairs by a loud birthday party of 8, almost a private party. with a child running around.
but will try again perhaps.

We are frequent diners. Went with my daughter. We each ordered two different drinks over the course of s couple of hours. Both tasted like cucumber and they were not cucumber drinks. One was a lemon drop the other a French 75. Told the server and she said she didn’t know why.

Place is meant for sharing small plates (think Tapas). Went during lunch and was in a bit of rush, so didn't get to thoroughly enjoy what this place had to offer. Just the food alone is worth going back for. It is outstanding! Had the Ahi Poke with Rice Cakes, Chicken Skin Cracklings with Fresno Chili's and Lime, and the Mini Burgers.
