Enjoyed the Sunday Roast. One of the group has an allergy which Bluebird asked about and we were confident that they took this seriously.
Good menu, spacious space with plenty of room between tables.
Food very good value, wine expensive but that's often the case so it didn't surprise us.
We would go again.

Overall, the food was alright but not memorable. The service was patchy and the ambience was lacking. One plus is the Cafe (ground floor) section is dog friendly.

A warm welcome on arriving for a spontaneous Friday lunch.
Interesting decor so asked my waiter for details of the restaurant's history - he and the manager kindly provided details of the 1923 Bluebird Garage with links to Malcolm Campbell, 1997 Bluebird Restaurant established by Terence Conran that since 2006 is one of the DandD restaurants.
The executive head chef has added his specialities to a broad menu supported by a good selection of matching drinks. My experience was so good in ambience, quality & value that I apologised to the patron of my art for running late and he came by taxi from the RA area to join me for drinks in the bar. So glad it was raining while queuing to enter a gallery as Bluebird was a great alternative and provided creative ideas.
Thank you Valeria, Rolando, Karim, Harvey and the team and I look forward to seeing you on the last day of 2010s & first day of 2020s, James

We had a great business lunch. The duck salad starter was outstanding.

Very good surroundings to have a working lunch and being well looked after by the staff.

We didn't like where we were seated- behind us was the kitchen with all the noise and we could see it because of a see through curten. It was cold & unpleasant, you could feel draft, so we sat with our coats on. There was lack of warmth from a lady who served us. It was very noisy, we had to shout to be able to hear what we said. The duck in the salad was too dry/ overcooked, one of tuna stakes was undercooked, another overcooked! So disappointed with everything!!! And it was my hubby's birthday lunch. And too expensive for what it is.

A very stylish dining experience with attentive service. The space is rather noisy on a Saturday evening! Having more than one dairy-free dessert option would be good.

I had an amazing night at Bluebird on Oct 26th.I wrote to them to teall I was going to celebrate my partner's birthday and when I arrived the waiter already knew.Fifi made everything for us to have a special night and the manager(Milan)was incredible caring about my partner's allergy. During the night my partner asked me to get married, which was a surprise and then by surprise the waitresse brought us 2 glasses of champagne to toast. They prepared 2 special deserts written "congratulation" and "happy birthday".Besides that the food was amazing and the atmosphere was the best.We cant wait to go back there and we want them to know they made our night wven more special
