Overall a good experience and fun scene. The dim sum style carts are the way to go. Not a fan of their lamb as it was really the only dish that lack flavor. Food was fresh comes out quickly.

I booked our table the day the reservations opened, for an anniversary dinner on a trip to San Francisco. I had been looking forward to this my whole trip. But. I felt that it must have been over hyped. I've eaten at Michelin stared restaurants around the world, but this was just missed the mark for me. The service was... More

Make the line, get on the waiting list or reserve online 59 days in advance. Point is: you have to eat here.

I travel to San Francisco about once a year, and I finally got a chance to try State Bird Provisions after being aware of it for more than a year. I have to say that I really like every aspect of it - the dining concept, the food and the service. It deserves all the accolades it gets. For my... More

Love the concept of the simple menu & dim sum like add-ons. Some of the food items are acquired taste, nonetheless, great atmosphere with energetic servers. Must book in advance if you want early dinners. otherwise wait for cancellation or late dinners..

A wide variety of interesting dishes served dim sum style. Very tasty. Very courteous staff. Ended up being less expensive than we had worried given the reputation.

When 2 chefs from your hometown (Atlanta) tell you to go here, you don't question it. You hope & pray you can get a reservation & gladly fork over a credit card to hold it. You go, order 11 dishes, & enjoy every last delicious morsel. You then post an obligatory collage on Instagram & give the aforementioned chefs a... More

What a treat! This dim sum style restaurant is awesome. Worth the wait. Must have reservations. So many great choices. Duck fried rice was a favorite. Also worth trying are pork belly, asparagus, Spanish Octopus, smoked trout dip, brussel sprouts and soup. Cannot go wrong here. Definitely earned all of their awards.

This is an unusual experience, because it is "American dim-sum". About half the choices are on the menu, but the other half circulates through the room on trays or carts and you just pick what strikes your fancy. The room is modest but the staff is among the very best in the city and the food is inventive and excellent... More
