    Fantastic meal. There are five main courses, but you are treated with many additional small bites using ingredients in a sustainable yet creative way. The squab was the best I have ever had. Service was excellent. Clearly an excellent choice in the popular Hayes Valley area. I am delighted we gave it a try. Kudos to chef Kim Alter and her staff.

    Nightbird was absolutely wonderful. The vegetarian tasting menu was phenomenal and they were able to accommodate a member of my party that was lactose intolerant tolerant which we greatly appreciated. We would go back in a heartbeat!

    Wonderfully artful experience, from the attentive service down to each detail in the presentation. This is a special occasion restaurant and the check reflects it.

    One of the most thoughtful dining experiences ever. Kim and Ron along with their entire staff...kitchen and service create an understated and memorable evening. We commented on, even after many courses, and feeling satisfied that we were not uncomfortable...pleasantly full and happy. Kim carefully sources every ingredient, knowing and respecting the people who provide Nightbird with what makes the food delicious, complex in flavor and yet simple to understand and taste every element. If you want to treat yourself to a treasure of an evening...go to Nightbird. You will feel taken care of, fed well and loved.

    We went to Nightbird to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were greeted and seated upon (slightly early) arrival. Our coats were hung up for us - I wish more restaurants did this! The service was outstanding, friendly and knowledgeable, careful but not intrusive. We had the tasting menu which was excellent: every dish was of the same high quality. We also had the paired wines which were well-chosen and explained to us. A really fabulous experience. Pricy, so only for special occasions, but worth it when you are ready to push the boat out. Avoid driving, as parking is tricky around there.

    The vegetarian menu was exceptional. Each dish had a delicious blend of flavors and the progression from dish to dish was thoughtfully designed. Our server was extremely knowledgeable and provided explanations for each dish that made each one more enjoyable. Nightbird deserves at least one Michelin star.

    Lovely dinner, well paced with a mixture of small bits with more substantial courses, inspired wine pairing, beautiful dinnerware and presentation and one of best pre-dinner cocktails! Small and intimate with attentive staff. Food delicious!!
