Been living in Chelsea a long long time and wanted to try. Nothing wrong with the restaurant ... waiters were very nice and food was good. It was just a very boring place, with boring food, nothing that justified the price we paid... nothing special , inventive or unique, would honestly not return unless for a drink.

Went for a pre wedding brunch, service was amazing. Only flaw is that there wasn’t many breakfast type options mostly lunch items. Great atmosphere and lovely tables.

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

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.
