Tips from the Net @ State Bird Provisions

It's really sad to write the review when the food was good, but our service was terrible - borderline nonexistent, and it's a shame, because we really enjoyed the food. When we sat down, the server brought some water, explained the menu, and disappeared. We waited 15 minutes from the time we sat down til the time we got our wine. Mind you, not a crazy busy night - steady, but not crazy. At that point, no one bothered to take our food order, and as waiters whizzed by, I finally flagged someone and she took down our order. The young lady saved the day because our food came in quick. The dim sum service seemed like a fun concept, and the pork belly was absolutely delicious, but somehow the trays rarely stopped by our table and we got the "undesirables" as our choices, which is a shame as I saw a lot of dishes I would have lured to try come out of the prep area. Finally, after we ordered dessert, we waited another 15 minutes and the dessert was disappointing. While we waited for dessert, milking our wine, we got no offer of another glass, no explanation for when the dessert is coming, no attention whatsoever. When we got our check, no one asked us about our experience or how the food was. Not the treatment I would expect from a Michlin rated restaurant and one of the must-try spots in the city. A shame, because we are obsessive foodies and would have liked to add this place to our regular list. GooglePlace - August 2017

STELLAR! The food is to die for and its all served dim-sum style. My GF and I were able to reserve a table for the night by visiting them in person during the evening. Would definitely return to try the variety of dishes. Expect to pay $100 per person for a complete and satisfying dinner. GooglePlace - July 2017

Our favorite restaurant in San Francisco! We have a hard time getting reservations, as they book up early, but our fail-safe trick is to wait in line starting around 4:30 or 5:00 PM (maybe with a roadie, liquor store is a few doors down), and get a seat for that same night. Come hungry - and don't assume a dish will pass around twice, get it the first time if you're interested. Food is ordered off the menu (try the pancakes and the toasts!) or Dim-Sum style on trays. We recommend eating 80-90% dim-sum and 10-20% off the menu for groups of 2-4. GooglePlace - June 2017

Depending on your point of reference, this place is on the pricey side for a meal, but of all the places I've been to, it was the most satisfying. Delicious food, ample portions, ever-changing menu and a great atmosphere make it hard to beat. Pro-Tip: Reservations are still hard to come by, but if you have a small group (6-8 people) it is MUCH easier to get a table. GooglePlace - June 2017

Loved it! So many tasty tidbits to choose from. Especially enjoyed the Korean ribs...Yum! Pace yourself as a plethora of plates (and bowls) come around the corner every few minutes. Be sure to try the ice cream sandwiches! GooglePlace - June 2017
