The food was very good. Service was slow. Our server forgot a few things for one member of our party. Overall, it was a fun evening at Three Birds Restaurant. We would definitely dine there again.

Just when it seems like the service, cocktails, and menu can’t get any better, they keep it coming. The new cobbler desserts are excellent and it’s good to have a change. They need to continue to change out and improve desserts.

Always excellent food and service. My sea bass was suitably tender and moist and my wife’s veal the same, with a rich sauce.

Solid wine list, appetizers and desserts

Limited wine selection paired with a nice menu equals a lovely evening. The rib eye was perfectly cooked with a nice seared crust.

Took my daughter and her fiance' - we enjoyed Three Birds very much. We had two roast pork, and one roast duck - everything delicious. We split a pasta with creamy butter sauce and fried leeks on top - excellent. Had peach cobbler for dessert - it was good but I wish I had gone with the creme brulee.

I have a hearing issue and they single most important thing I want from a restaurant is to be able to hear the people at my table. This evening it was incredibly loud. I was not able to hear the waitress at all. In addition, it was so dark that it was difficult to read the menu. The food was very good, I was supersized to see that a salad was not offered as part of a meal and that there was no choice of potatoes or vegetable, everyone at the table ended up with string beans, no matter what meal they had.
There was one table of older men that were creating most of the noise, I think it would have been easy to politely ask if they would speak in a civil tone. The meals are expensive, appropriate for an event such as the 33rd wedding anniversary I was trying to celebrate. This was my first visit to the place, maybe it is not always so loud, but first impressions are hard to get past.

This was the best complete meal we have had in a very long time. Each item was amazing. The only complaint was the area was cold and we had cold air blowing on us, there were several other tables complaining. Also the noise from the bar area was very loud at times and took away from the amazing experience.

I wouldn't write off the restaurant, but service was a little slow and inattentive (water glasses not refilled, for instance). Maybe understaffed. My husband's "medium" ribeye steak came quite well done; my "medium rare" filet mignon was medium. A dessert was comped to make up for the issue. I expected better, given reviews I'd read. Nice ambiance; attractive place. I'd recommend, but not super enthusiastically.

Our group of 4 arrived early, 5:30 pm, and stayed until 8:30pm. Everything was 5 star! Towards the last hour, it started getting crowded and the noise level was almost unbearable. Otherwise, fabulous on all counts. Thank you.

We had been to Three Birds years ago during another visit to Corning. The food was outstanding. I had scallops and my husband had pork tenderloin. There were two different risotto with the platters, both excellent. Susie was our waitress, she was friendly and efficient. She was very helpful when we made our meal choices. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Three Birds is located on Market Street, the main locale for trendy restaurants, cute shops, bars, and Corning's two major tourist venues, the Museum of Glass and the Rockwell Museum (it is not Norman Rockwell). Three Birds is one of the more upscale restaurants. The interior is attractive, the noise level is slightly above moderate, and menu is diverse. Service was adequate but not as good as I would expect in a relatively high and restaurant. Appetizers and entrées were attractively presented and delicious, although entrées were perhaps a little small for the price. Desserts were a disappointment. The crust on the crème brûlée with soft, and the texture of the actual creme was more liquid than usual. Flavor was a little strong on the egg side. The specialty strawberry shortcake equivalent appeared to be two pieces of hardtack with about 1 1/2 strawberries and a small dollop of cream. The wine and beer list was moderately extensive, and overall the prices were appropriate for food quality and the type of venue. I would eat there again when next I visit Corning, but I think I would hit one of the ice cream places up and down the street for my dessert.

We celebrated our tenth anniversary here and were delighted with our experience. The food was well prepared and well presented. The service was excellent; prompt,informative and extremely friendly. We were both pleased our hostess at the B&B suggested Three Birds. It was perfect for our anniversary dinner.
