“Excellant food”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

visiting relatives in Calif. and family took me here to eat one morning. The food was fantastic! Very laid back atmosphere with dining outside on sidewalk as well as inside. Ever since they appeared on triple DDD they have been swamped and had to quit serving dinner. They hope to start soon (may have already since I visited) I had an omelet that was perfectly cooked. Service was good and we had no complaints about anything. Would definitely eat here again if I lived in the area.

“Great diner”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Great food. Friendly staff. Good choices of wine n cocktails. Hip place for young n old. Nestled in the middle of a beautiful residential area you can park a block away n walk and enjoy the nice weather too. A highly recommended brunch place.

Downside.... It's popular so it can be busy. So come early.

“Enjoy Paris in Long Beach”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Starling is a fabulous hidden gem in Long Beach, immediately amidst a residential area, with beautiful greenery , fabulous setting and an amazing menu. The French bistro style set up, wonderful coffees and amazing waffles and breakfast items are a treat to be enjoyed ! Cannot wait for a next opportunity to visit !

“Tasty breakfast”
Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

Diverse menu to cover a broad range of cravings. Food is fresh and very tasty. The staff is friendly and very attentive. This place is popular so you might have a bit of a wait, but it goes by quick.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed 18 March 2014 via mobile

I came here with my husband for breakfast after reading the great reviews and was disappointed. The French toast was good but it wasn't the best. I got the egg scramble with potatoes and the food was really bland. Save your money and head over to crooked duck instead.
