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 have been going to Bird and the Bottle for many, many years. We went to dinner for the first time in two years (due to COVID) yesterday. The experience has changed for us---it felt more about quantity than quality. The service felt rushed, the dessert was raw, we were in and out in 34 minutes...it was a bummer. The items on the menu haven't changed in many years, but the food is still pretty good, minus the raw dessert. Sadly, we just didn't feel the welcome we used from years ago so we'll be thinking about supporting other local restaurants and come back to B&TB.

They serve a menu of mainly small plates to share. The various items we tried were all very tasty. The smoked poke and pastrami tacos were delicious.

Made a reservation here on a whim while passing through Santa Rosa, and I'm so happy I did. This restaurant is so cute and cozy. It was nice and quiet at 7pm on a Tuesday. The food is tapas style, and their menu has so much to offer. If I lived closer, this would probably be my go-to for getting together with friends. Our server was fantastic as well. Portions were a little smaller than I was expecting for the price, but everything was delicious. I recommend the octopus and the everything greens. Didn't get a chance to try any cocktails or wine but they had a lot to offer.

Food and drinks never disappoint. Service is spectacular…only complaint the last few times we have gone is that it took awhile for anyone to approach our table to begin service. Otherwise, all is fantastic

We went to Bird & The Bottle expecting to have brunch but came to find out that they discontinued brunch and we were stuck with the dinner menu at 11:30am. The food was not good and expensive. We were very disappointed.

Loved the experience. Service was spot on and friendly, without being intrusive. Food was great. Every plate different and delicious. Upstairs not as ‘festive’ in feel as downstairs. More suitable for bigger parties. We were the only two top up there. Will definitely return.

Excellent meal! We got the 1/2 fried chicken, smoked beets, brussels sprouts, and tuna poke. For 2 it was more than enough. We’d probably sub out the brussels sprouts for a smaller appetizer if doing it again. The smoked beets were the highlight of the meal - super unique take on a common dish.

My wife and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary and we decided to celebrate up in Santa Rosa. In searching for restaurants, The Bird and The Bottle popped up, and what caught my eye was the crispy pork belly and the bone marrow!! Seeing that they were small plates, looked like a great place to try multiple dishes. Upon arrival, the restaurant is so cute and quaint, reminded us of an old-style home converted into a restaurant. We were seated at the back of the restaurant, right near the open kitchen. Service was great, all servers and bussers were very attentive. All the food turned out delicious!! The server recommended 2-3 dishes per person, and we ended up ordering a total of 6 plates, which was definitely more than enough for the two of us: the shrimp won ton, the crispy pork belly over polenta, bone marrow, mini burger sliders, fried cheese curds, and the sesame chicken wings. We also had their sangria, which tasted so good with the addition of an orange zest slice on top. Can’t wait to come back and try the other dishes on the menu!

Victor was our waiter and he was very attentive. These dishes are meant to share because you do get quite a bit. I would’ve ordered less items if I would’ve realized. My husband loved the fried cheese curds and I like the fried potatoes. He had a pastrami taco which is very unusual. Lots of different sauces for the items, especially the beet salad. It had a sauce and sunflower seeds. I couldn’t pass up dessert carrot cake in a jar.

Got sick from mini fried chicken sliders. Maybe it was a one off incident as others in my party were fine with the other dishes ordered. My party agreed that the dishes were fine but nothing to revisit.
