Redbird was fantastic! It's a beautiful space. We were seated on time. Each member of our party had a different cocktail and all tasted great. All of dishes, from small plates to main courses were tasty and perfectly prepared. Our server was knowledgeable and patient as we enjoyed a family gathering for a birthday. Simply a nice evening out.

We found the help to be less than friendly, a bit curt and arrogant. The very expensive food was uneven. They had only 2 choices for a salad and neither were actually a vegetable salad. Some food was very tasty like the mushroom pasta and some was bland as the pot pie, even some offensive like the pork. The desert was very tiny.

Food was stellar and service excellent. We were seated in bar area, not as desirable as dining room. Shared many dishes family style with a large group, definitely the way to go.

Redbird is a great place to have an intimate meal or a family experience. We came to Redbird for our anniversary and it couldn't have been any better. The service, food, wait time and experience met our expectation.

We went to Redbird to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday and it was an amazing experience. The service was perfect, and the food was even better. The menu is divided in four groups. The first one is small dishes, meaning you should order roughly two dishes per person and share. That is what we did and it was absolutely delicious. Looking forward to going there again.

Had a great Valentines dinner. The service was good and the food we ordered was exceptional. We had the hamachi crudo and the chicken pot pie to start. The Cavatelli was really tasty/savory! Then finally the rack of red wattle pork. So flavorful and tender over polenta. I would definitely come back again.

Redbird is consistently one of the best restaurants in Los Angeles. The food is fantastic and the staff is attentive. Tobin is one of the best bartenders in the country. The cocktails are innovative and the food is outstanding.

Had a great dinner on a Friday evening before 8 p.m. curtain time. Arrived at 6 p.m. and had a lovely relaxed dinner without any problems with timing. Food and service was excellent as usual. This is an excellent pre-theatre dinner option.

The bartenders are great! However, when we got seated, our server wanted very little to do with us and brushed us off like we were inconveniencing him. We rarely saw him and had trouble ordering drinks. We went for Valentines Day which was a ‘pre-fixed menu’ unfortunately that was only for a few selected dishes. If you wanted other dishes listed on the prefix menu it would cost $10-$20 more than the original $125.00. A person. It felt more like an entrance fee than a prefix menu price listed. We spent $400 for oversalted food, an absent server and overall disappointment. I had high expectations and was incredibly let down. I’d go back for the bartenders thought. Good guys. Red bird- please tell your servers that it doesn’t cost anything to be kind and pleasant to your customers. We gladly return the kindness.

We were there for Valentine's day dinner. Outrageous optional charge on top of the three course menu. And if you stick with the basic, there is not much to choose from. We ordered the Porterhouse steak for two with $48 surcharge, and it is TERRIBLE. The steak is partially overcooked and partially under cooked. The desserts feels like a stack of cheap supermarkets products.

Some up side:
Service is good.
The Brazilian cheesebread they offered with break is delicious.
Lamb heart tartare is tasty.

Great Valentine's Dinner! Food is incredible at Redbird - never had anything that isn't the best here - the service was a little off (probably due to the volume). Our server was almost non-existent - but we enjoyed once again and will be back!

We got to the restaurant and sat at the bar to wait for the rest of our party. We ordered chicken and waffles and financier while we wait and those were good. When we got seated to our table, we ordered 4 different dishes and sad to say that 3 of the 4 dishes were just too salty. We tend to eat on the salty side anyway but these just took it to a different level, borderline inedible unfortunately. I will say though that the service was good and our server was very attentive. Great ambiance too.

Amazing dinner here with my husband. We found this place online and decided to give it a try. We will for sure be coming back next time we are in LA. For starters, we had the pork 3 ways, it was a great French dish, we also had the shishito peppers which were amazing! Plenty of them too. We had the crudo and it was very light and favorful. For the main dishes, we had the duck (which I had decided on when I looked at the menu online. It was divine. Crispy and tender... amazing! We had the risotto and black cod as well and they were both great! We skipped dessert because we had a concert to get to, but I’ll be back!!

We had reservations at 12 (we were on time). We had to wait 30 minutes in the lounge. The seats were in the same room as the waiting lounge area and the tables were empty. Not sure why we had to wait 30 minutes to sit at the empty tables. Never got to see what the restaurant looked like in other parts, since we only got as far as the lounge. The wall of the bar blocked the view of the restaurant, so it felt like we weren’t part of the restaurant. Food was decent, but not worth the price. Would not come back or recommend friends.

We loved everything! The Thai Crab Soup was terrific. Such a lovely menu. The restaurant attracts a lot of pre-theater diners, so we found the dishes coming out very quickly, even though it was after 7:30 p.m. When we asked our server to "slow it down", he was very responsive. We totally appreciated the opportunity to savor each course and digest a bit before the next one.
We look forward to going back in the nice weather when we can dine on the patio. Loved it all!
