    JBird started as a hidden cocktail den in Midtown and has evolved into a proper Upper East Side destination. Expect cocktail classics including fizzes, sours, and all the old favorites.

    Lovely ambience, good music, great service!! They make some really good cocktails, if you are into spicy cocktails try the pepino... and of course their classic is honey nut old fashioned, a must try.

    The bar foods were amazing. I reccomend the popcorn. Shredded pork bugers, and hummus! The drinks here are really great too, JbirdSprizzle is highly recommended.,

    This isn't a first date place guys. Quit showing off how huge your trust funds are and appreciate the craft and artistry of each individual cocktail. They have Yamasaki whiskey here, drink it proudly.

    Great sexy, low-key date spot. For bar munchies, try the savory popcorn; as for drinks, don't miss out on the Honey Nut Old Fashioned: a childhood, breakfast cereal flashback!

    The peppino is INSANELY good. Unfortunately, when I returned after craving it all week, it didn't taste at all the same from a different bartender. Will def go back in search of that amazing peppino.

    Standout drinks are the unusual Honey-Nut Old Fashioned and the Hudson Breeze Fizz, a gin and brandy drink balanced with baked apple foam. Read more

    Pepino is great if you like spicy drinks. Tater-tots are good - they're seasoned with herbs and cheese. I recommend the bone marrow appetizer.

    Finish their bone marrow app and they'll pour a shot of tequila (preferably a Bordeaux-cask-aged one, according to them) down the "bone channel" and into your gullet. Read more

    New cocktail menu! I recommend the Peppino if you like spicy and cucumber.

    Jbird East, the Upper East Side location, will feature an "in-kitchen culinary theater," or chef's table, with two pre-sold seatings during the week. Read more

    Get the good humor fizz- tastes like a creamsicle! This is a true gem of a cocktail bar, with the ambiance of old New York

    Ask for Stella. She's by far the most tentative, sweetheart of a waitress I've ever had. And those cocktails are tops!

    If you're with the right people this place will grow on you... As long as someone else is picking up the tab. Otherwise you're F'd.

    Favorite cocktail bar on the UES! Fancy drinks, gorgeous atmosphere and amazing service. You can always get a seat here.

    Bit of brisk (pineapple express, the campout, Moscow mutt) and the bold (the honey nut old fashioned)... All money!!

    Great cocktails. Not pretentious. And they play wicked old school west coast hip hop.

    Hudson breeze and bar popcorn was amazing. Behind god's back is a great fruity tropical cocktail.

    Honey nut old fashioned ftw. Not for the weak. It's your 90 year old grandmother who drinks whiskey everyday type joint.

    Actually located in another bar, XVI. Tell the bouncer you’re there for JBird, follow the bird logos that line the wall. Go down a staircase and through two doors marked “exit” leading to the lounge.

    The honey-nut old fashioned is the favorite for good reason, but the Imperial March is the real star.

    A good place for a stiff and fun drink, but food and service in the dining area is less than desirable. Have been here a few times and will not eat here again.

    The savory popcorn is delicious. If you're a "texture person," beware: it's wet, but the flavor is awesome.

    Get the Honey-Nut Old Fashioned before you try anything else. Then, try everything else.

    Don't come here to eat. We had 4 dishes and one we had to return. The others we had a few bites and wrapped the rest for the dog. Horrible. Drinks are good though.

    They don't do substitutions but if you ask real nice, get an Afternoon Delight with Junipero.

    What is this? Meh service, high prices, and I can't see the damn cocktail list. You get more ice than drink. Good playlist, that's about it. Underwhelming.
