I have long been a fan of Yardbird and dined at its restaurants in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Chicago, and even Singapore. The biscuits are to die for and everything we’ve eaten at any of the locations has been delicious. We met up with friends for brunch today and while the food was on a par with past experiences, the service was lacking.
Anthony’s Take: Yard Bird offers filling, Southern dishes in a modern yet rustic environment. I highly recommend the biscuits whether you’re there for brunch or dinner. Service was a little off on this visit, but we’ll be back again.
Decor & Vibe
All of the Yardbird locations feature what I call a modern, rustic look. Think distressed woods and leathers and decor that feels homey yet stylish.
The bar is in the front of the restaurant and tables and booths were scattered throughout.
An open kitchen overlooks the dining room and we were able to watch our food being prepared.
The brunch menu has a good variety of Southern dishes, salads, brunch classics, and home-baked goods.
We started with the Crispy Chicken Biscuit, which has always been my favorite.
As an entree, I had the Literally Everything Bagel & Lox. It had a ton of avocado. It was decent, but nothing memorable. I tried to go lighter since we were eating so much at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival.
My husband had the Blueberry French Toast Fritters. They were delicious (I stole a bite).
Yardbird offers an impressive cocktail menu and wine list. My friend got a Bloody Mary. We ordered unsweetened iced tea. Oddly, our iced tea took about 15-20 minutes to arrive after his drink was there. This was about the level of service we encountered throughout the meal. The server took our order and then came back 10 minutes later to say the computer had went down and she needed the order again. When the food came, three of the four entrees were right. The incorrect one was quickly remedied.
The food at Yardbird continues to be solid. The service on this visit was not good. It was clear the server was either new or distracted. We had fun with our friends and enjoyed the meal.
