I was really disappointed. Lack of atmosphere didn’t help. But no excuse for the poor quality of food. Cold and unappetising crab linguine. Strange texture tuna. Cold coffee. Average cocktails. A real shame. We won’t be back.

Disappointing.
Restaurant was very quiet even though we went mid week for lunch. The starter of vegetable tartine looked pretty but had no taste. It was lacking flavour. It needed maybe a drizzle of truffle oil and some herbs. The chickpea fritters we had for our mains were not great either. Far too heavy and greasy and boring. We decided to skip desserts.
The restaurant looked nicely done up with an outside terrace but the service was not great either. We started off with a waiter who then went off to do staff training with a group in the restaurant which was really annoying as we could hear the leader talking loudly. We had to go the desk to ask for the bill.

Pleasantly surprised by this Restaurant, lovely décor, excellent service, warm and personable.
Nice portion of fresh and flavoursome food.
Great cocktail list, the music at 7pm was not too loud and it was easy to have a conversation without having to shout (as in many restaurants and bars of the capital).
I warmly recommend it!

Food was really good. However despite having booked a table we had to wait 45 minutes for our seat, and I watched someone walk in and be given a table before us.

Nice location and I do really like this place, but some of the service was a bit lacking.

We didn’t have starters. The mains were really tasty; yellow fin tuna was done perfectly, the steak was also really nice and perfectly cooked.

We both had an ice cream for dessert and again, very nice.

It’s quite expensive, c£50 for 2 courses each and no wine but would certainly go back

I have dined at the Chelsea location many times and expected a similar experience at the White City location. The ambiance was totally different - the patio seemed a bit thrown together, like chairs and tables that were just found spare in a storage room.

The food was decent but the service made this pretty much unenjoyable. We had to ask multiple times for anything - menu, water, ketchup, the bill... including the maitre d, when the restaurant was less than half full.

I’ll be dining a lot at the other nearby restaurants once White City House is open, but unfortunately my experience at this Bluebird tainted any future bookings.

I though I’d try the new Bluebird as the reviews were good, but unfortunately it didn’t match what I’d read.
We had a starter of fried prawns that tasted like dehydrated cardboard, the salt and chilli squid we also had was lacking heat in both senses.
The mains were ok (fish and chips and shepherds pie) but nothing really to write home about.

It may have been that we just picked the wrong food as the burgers looked good and so did some of the sandwiches.

A light lunch cost £80 for two, mainly because 4 small bottled beers (2 each) came to £18.

Will I go again? Probably but I’ll stick to wine and a burger

Well executed food and friendly service, bad signage from the outside - it wasnt strikingly clear that the orange awning outside was in fact Bluebird, could be some clearer branding.

Would come back nonetheless.

Lovely Saturday lunch. Really good service and beautiful decoration. The DJ music was way too loud and did spoil our meal - we were not an old crowd (included 16y, 20y & 22y) but all agreed the DJ music was annoying and too loud.

We had a fabulous lunch and awesome service. We can’t wait to return and repeat our unforgettable first experience. The Manager Samantha was an amazing welcoming host. We had a feeling that we were at home with friends rather than at a restaurant and didn’t want leave. After shopping at Westfield across the road we nearly went for dinner at Bluebird!
