This place was highly recommended to me by my foodie sister. My husband and I went to the Little Bird Bistro to celebrate our anniversary. It's the perfect place for a romantic dinner and we had a great window seat. We started off with the...More

The service was five stars, we just weren’t impressed with the food. It was pretty average, but when your paying the prices you pay here you’re afforded the luxury of harsher judgement. The stuffed cabbage, which is a new dish for them, was, frankly, tasteless....More

What a lovely dining experience! The food was fantastic (every single bite) and the waitstaff was excellent. We dined on the second floor which was spacious and a perfect volume. I would go back in a heartbeat. Our lovely waitress even gave us a list...More

Sat at the bar and got some wonderful recommendations from the bartender. The goat cheese gnocchi was fantastic and the fried chicken coq a vin was tremendous. Fair warning, you’ll probably want to split the crime brûlée it was certainly big enough for two.

The setting is fun and cozy! Service was great! I came in for a late dinner on Saturday night and was able to get a spot at the bar, otherwise the wait would have been over an hour. The menu had many good choices and...More

Overall, the food was disappointing. We had the seared Foie Gras and the Foie Gras Torchon, which were both really good. However, the Cassoulet was basically white bean soup with a very small duckling leg, a tiny piece of sausage and a single tiny piece...More

We dined at Little Bird last night and the two-hour relaxed meal was delightful. Our server (Jaye) was excellent with just the right amount of attention while seamlessly clearing and bringing new utensils/plates. The eclectic French décor help combine the Pacific Northwest charm with the...More

I hosted a group upstairs for a corporate lunch. As we know, heat rises and it became very hot up there. They brought in fans for us. I thought they handled it well.
