Amazing and unique food...good to be offered food and decide based on how it looks. They are nice and funny and not pushy.

A highlight of San Francisco's dinning scene. A mix of dishes to order and dim style carts, with a wildly inventive marriage of various cuisines. We sampled the famous state bird (fried quail), ricotta pancakes, one with and the other a kind of sour dough blini, Dungeness crab with tofu skin pappardelle, short ribs, biscuits with foie gras, oysters with...

Stopped by State Bird on a recent girls trip and couldn't have been happier. The Dim Sum style if fabulous, as is the food. What makes the place great though, is the staff. Waiters share tables and each and every one of them was so nice and knowledgeable. They made our night!

The atmosphere was great and fun. Loved the inventive way they serve the food. They bring around plate dim sum style but it's not dim sum food. The food was inventive and tasted great. The duck confit fried rice was the star of the night.

I honestly have mixed feelings about this place. Even though I admit that the food is well-elaborated, the atmosphere, especially the lighting, is not really special. I felt that I was in an average dining room, not in a place with a unique soul. The dim sum philosophy applied in this restaurant is also cool, but it can be overwhelming... More

As other reviewers have noted, hard to describe - but this may help. THE SPACE Deep but not very wide with small tables close to each other. Open kitchen overlooked by a bar. Table tops are cork-board (with holes filled in). Some walls are painted brick, others are cork-board faced. Lighting is uniform and bright. Another reviewer called it ‘industrial’... More

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
