Brussel sprouts, dumplings, pancakes, wagyu toast and state bird were all delicious
Wonderful off the chart food/ingredient combinations.
As always, a wonderful culinary experience. And their patio is fantastic! Best in the city
First time back at SBP since the beginning of the pandemic and I think the bloom is off the rose. Or maybe it’s me. I thought the dishes tried hard to be creative but came up short : the red trout starter was too salty and was cheapened by the accompaniment of commercial potato chips; the persimmons were in an odd tasting sauce; the sourdough pancake was pedestrian; the wagu toast was served on a huge piece of “Texas” toast and was smothered in greens that obscured the appreciation of the appearance and flavor of the wagu; but fortunately the quail was quite good.
Misc: The noise level was intolerable - required shouting to be heard. The poor waiter could not be heard through his mask and struggled to hear our order, which was initially botched. Why not remove the ceramic art on the wall and replace w something that doesn’t reflect noise? The restrooms are quite nice and were also a temporary haven from the noise of the dining room. 5 Bauer Bombs.
What hasn’t changed: still the most expensive meal on Fillmore. Save your dough and go to the Anchovy Bar if you can get a table after the NYT article.
Incredible food, awesome staff, great experience.
The restaurant is so phenomenal. There’s nothing about it I didn’t love. From the staff to the ambulance to the food to every single thing about the place. You can’t get there fast enough.
Every aspect of this visit was amazing. The service was attentive without being imposing, the food was unbelievably unique, and the vibe in the restaurant felt welcoming.
Great service and inspiring menu. Outside on a warm night was heavenly
Great food and service. We had been wanting to dine at SBP for years and totally enjoyed everything.
Overall, Service was great. Ordered 6 dishes plus dessert. My friend had the quail which she enjoyed and the desert was flavorful. However underwhelmed by most of the food which was lacking in salt and other accents to make this a great culinary experience.
Amazing small plates with the dumplings our favorite!! The October quail was outstanding and finger licking necessary 🤗
Lived up to the expectations! The unique combination of flavors in the sharing dishes were an explosion of flavors. There’s clearly technique with every item, but there’s also the passion, felt with each bite. Service was excellent. Highly recommend it.
Delicious as always. Sauces that add and delight. Nuoc Cham with avocado? Outstanding
I’ve loved SBP the last time I’ve been there - both the dimsum style of service that allows us to sample many things, and the food itself. We were a bit underwhelmed last night - 2 dishes were over-seasoned (high on salt) : the day’s special cod collar and tail, and the pork belly salad. And all 4 of us eating agreed on that. The chocolate dessert was disappointing - I don’t remember tasting any candied meyer lemon, and there was too little pear to elevate a mediocre chocolate sponge to anything remarkable. The duck confit dumplings were the best thing in the meal. I expected better from SBP overall.
State Bird is always delicious and amazing! From the first time I visited when it first opened to now, the food has always been inventive, surprising, and delightful. It is one of the best restaurants in San Francisco.
Great night out again, State Bird never disappoints. Looking forward to seeing the dim sum style carts come out again once we get past COVID.
Overall, I enjoyed my experience at State Bird Provisions. The state bird (fried quail) was absolutely delicious and worth the evening; my other dishes were more variable. The duck confit dumplings were a bit tough on the outside and bland; the sourdough pancakes were better, but not remarkable. The restaurant is loud and energetic, and I suspect that when the dim sum carts are running, the atmosphere is festive.
Excellent service, wonderful food. The duck dumplings were exceptional.
Even though the carts are not rolling at the moment, the food is still great. We miss a couple of dishes not on the menu, like the ribs but overall still a great meal. We love the parklet which means we can bring our small dog and the service is still top notch.
To say the food is incredible is an understatement.
Service was impecable. Atmosphere was perfect. Truly lovely time.
We finally got lucky and got a spot in State Birds Provisions after years of trying. Great food, service & overall loved the spot.
Great experience, also very pricey. I thought the food was good - you can tell it they use high quality ingredients and everything was very creative. Definitely tried a lot of foods I’ve never had before, though some of them were better than others. The portions are very small so we had to order multiple to feed our table of 4. I would go back for a special occasion for the experience and the ambiance but it was definitely very expensive.
The food was very interesting and tasted pretty good overall. Loved their snacks(appetizers) and desserts!
Amazing food and great service! We went for an anniversary dinner and got a sweet stamped menu. A small touch that we loved. The food was great, our server took the time to answer our questions and make sure we were warm enough. 10/10!
Friendly and helpful staff. They went out of their way to make an anniversary dinner special.
With a group of four we were able to try quite a large number of menu options. Though diverse, each was beautifully presented with complex flavor/texture profile and DELICIOUS!
It is no wonder that Gaby Madea, chef de cuisine, was one of Food and Wine’s “Best New Chefs” of 2021.
We would love to return to State Bird Provisions!
It was good I had fun with my family and partner. The servers were great.
Great food all around. We ordered 13 dishes and all were outstanding. The combination of flavors on each dish were very unique and not necessarily typical, but they always worked together. Highly recommended and great value for a Michelin starred restaurant.
Worth all the hype, though I came with my 87 year old Dad and the acoustics of the restaurant plus the loud music at 5pm made it impossible for him to hear me even next to me. I will try to eat outside next time to hear better/
I was dissapointed with the steak was chewy and my squid tasted a bit fishy.
Amazing as always
The severs recommendations were on point and the food was fire.
it was very expensive innovative with small portions Our severer Miranda was fantastic
Always innovative and delicious
duck confit dumplings! plus the namesake State Bird.
It was incredible and worth the wait to get a reservation! Our server was so kind and the Yuba and sauerkraut pancakes may be 2 of the best dishes I’ve ever had!! Thank you!!
The food was absolutely great and service was outstanding! It's been our 2nd time back after re-opening and it was great both times.
Out of town guest
For the reputation of the restaurant I was disappointed in the service we received from our waiter--despite warning him that we were going to have lots of questions and that mom is sort of a picky eater. The food was great and they have done an excellent job with their outdoor patio where we sat. However, we weren't given set ups to start with so ended up receiving our first round of food without any utensils or napkins. Our server told us we needed to order all of our dishes at once but when I asked if they would be spaced out instead of brought all at once and he said yes. Well that was not the case. All of the starters and first courses dishes that we ordered came out one on top of another. I finally had to say something to the food runner after the last starter was brought so our entrees wouldn't be brought out too soon. Our waiter clearly seem uninterested in us after our order was placed but fortunately the rest of the staff was a little more on top of it. The starter dishes being brought out too quickly was really a frustrating part of our experience considering I had specifically asked about that once he made us order our dishes all at once
