Had dinner for two here recently, and we enjoyed the setting, food and drinks and great service. We sat upstairs in the balcony, which was quieter than the first floor, and warmer since heat rises. Good menu and bar choices. Good prices. We'll be back!

We came late on a Friday (like 8p) and the place was very lively. The tables for two are small, and if the staff doesn't space out the dishes, the table becomes very cramped. Our meal came out fast and furious and there was no...More

Good wine list with mostly French and a bit of Pacific Northwest. But if you like foie gras, this was the very best I have ever eaten. We both enjoyed the King Salmon special and it was perfect. The chef at Little Bird really rocks!

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.
