My friends and I really enjoyed the food and ambiance. We were in town for a girls’ weekend. The quality of the food was great. All meals-lamb, pecan encrusted pork and Creole Jambalaya- were tasty, plentiful and fresh. The desserts were delicious, decadent and generously sized. We would go back.

Food and Service were very good. Our reservation was initially outdoor but they were nice enough to accommodate our request for indoor seating. They offer a full bar but I would have liked a small cocktail menu for inspiration.

My husband and I went there for our 40th wedding anniversary. I requested a romantic and quiet table and was not disappointed. Our server was attentive but not intrusive. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. My husband had the Jambalaya and I had the special, Artic Char. Both will good portions, prepared well and delicious.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Three Birds! Our party of 6 were seated at the chef's table in the dining room which was a bit private and very festive for our birthday celebration. We all loved the wedge salad and fish tacos that started our meal and our dinner entrees were equally impressive. The bone-in rib steak was pricey but definitely worth it, the lamb chops and salmon were perfectly cooked as was the entree special, arctic char. Roasted fingerling potatoes and Brussels sprouts were just the right seasonal accompaniments. We loved the key lime pie (just the right amount of tart vs sweet). Service was attentive but not obtrusive. Definitely want to return to taste all their seasonal menus.

While visiting Corning, NY we ate at the Three Birds Restaurant twice. The mixed green and Ceasar salads were delicious and the menu choices were wonderful. The Pork tenderloin dinner was awesome and so was the special that night, Arctic char fish and Faroe Island Salmon dinners were exceptional. You can't go wrong with this restaurant.

We had made reservations in advance. They did a great job of maintaining social distancing. We were seated on the second floor and had a great view of Market Street. The food choices were excellent and the food we ordered was outstanding. Wonderful ambiance made for a very memorable night. We will definitely be going there again!

Salad was crisp and delicious - just the right amount of dressing. My husband had the scallops, I had the chef's special Chilean sea bass. Both of us were almost crying it was so delicious and well prepared. We send our appreciation to the chef, which we rarely do. The room was quiet and pretty. We just wanted a glass of wine each rather than a bottle, and we were happy with the generous pours. Highly recommend.

Interesting menu that made choosing complicated but the three dishes we shared were delicious. The oddest sounded dish - a ‘ceviche’ of sweet potato and melon - was a clever combination, a bit spicy (which we liked), and well balanced.

Perfection in dining experience. The New Zealand Saivignon Blanc was fruity but sufficiently dry. The pork tenderloin entree, what many always mention, was delicious and completed by whipped potatoes light gravy, and asparagus. And we knew to save room for dessert: coffee with key lime pie for me and coffee and a decadent chocolate, fresh fruit and raspberry compote for my friend. It is a lovely setting upstairs with a whole wall of windows overlooking Market Street. Downstairs is also well appointed with art and inviting ambiance. We were happy to pay a little more for fine dining and for supporting a local owner doing everything he can to follow health regulations (going up one staircase and coming down another, for example) and trying to survive as a small business employer. Honestly, without being asked or invited, I wrote just such a positive review on YELP.

Spacing was good. Flowers and candle on the table was nice. The fresh baked bread was out of this world. The veal piccata was very tasty and presented in a little different manner. A nice unoaked French chardonnay was on the menu that we really enjoyed.

Three Birds Restaurant in Corning during the time of COVID-19 probably doesn't look as it did pre-pandemic, but the restaurant's menu, service, and ambiance maintain a very high standard. During a recent Sunday evening dinner, we enjoyed their fish soup and Caesar salad as appetizers, and the rack of lamb, fish tacos, shrimp jambalaya, and scallops as main courses. Their desserts--key lime pie, creme brulee, and tiramisu--were scrumptious.

Service is very friendly and attentive. All food arrived simultaneously for five diners, and the servers could not have been friendlier or helpful. We would definitely return to this restaurant, and look forward to their seasonally selected specials.

My friend and I had a very nice dinner. We were seated by the window with a view of Market Street. We had a very friendly efficient waitress. The food was very good and the restaurant was quiet enough for us to carry on a conversation. Three Birds is our special To Go place.

The server was lovely and the service was great. I did reserve a table but found the ambiance downstairs to be nicer than upstairs. The food was good however quite salty. Overall we had a nice time. I wasn’t blown away by the food though. The service was excellent I must say. I would recommend the restaurant for the atmosphere and service but not the food .

This was an anniversary dinner. The staff were friendly. Nice environment. Crabcake starter with wilted spinach had good lumps of crabmeat but the remoulade sauce was salty. Cod special was tasty with an intricate sauce. Veal piccata was tender but also had a salt problem. Definitely would go again if we find ourselves in Corning. Menu has a lot of intriguing choices and other than saltiness everything is well prepared.
