Great food and service (really nicely cooked spatchcock chicken and a well-seasoned duck nasi goreng) but I have to say it’s gone a bit YOUNG since I last went there. Full of Made in Chelsea-ites and with dreary dance music playing, it has sort of lost its class over the last (maybe 20!) years. In the early 2000s it was - I thought - classier than this. Still the food was beautifully cooked and the service was attentive and friendly so I would say it’s one of the best places to go in this stretch of the Kings Road.

Dining room was beautiful and food was fine (not special but not bad). Service was some of the worst I've received in the world (and you'll see from my OT acct that prior to quarantine ate out quite a bit). 3/5 of my party sat down on time and were waiting for our tragically late other 2 for quite some time. We had to ask a waiter for champagne thirty minutes into seating. Then we had to ask them to clear our plates when we were done. Wondering if I should categorize this as bad or neglectful service. Probably both. So many pretty restaurants with a scene in London. Skip this one.

Friday fish did not disappoint at Bluebird, Chelsea. Fresh calamari with chilli to start and lobster for main, washed down with the house Rose was delicious. The staff were world class in their service and the evening felt like a celebration of all that is good in life.

The food had no flavour at all. This was the worst experience I’ve ever had in a restaurant.

The service was also really slow, we had to ask the waiter a number of times if the dessert was coming and waited half an hour for it. This place is just overpriced for the experience you get so better off going to a restaurant that takes quality and flavour more seriously.

The decor was old and the place was also dirty. The chair I sat on actually had bits on it and hair on it from the previous person who sat there. For a high end place you expect the cleanliness to be better than this and also dust from the ceiling kept falling on us the entire time we sat there and when I looked up all I could see is spider webs everywhere especially on the paper blue birds that are hanging from the ceiling.

Loved the service, loved the food, loved the decor, great value - but the whole experience was a little bit 'spoiled' by the horribly noisy and disruptive rabble sitting at the table behind us.

Excellent service. A very nice place for a get together. Food was a bit disappointing (mine had too much lemon in the pesto and not particularly warm) but would still come back. Dessert (vegan pavlova) was divine!

COVID notwithstanding, felt like a normal restaurant in normal times. Excellent good and good service. Experience slightly marred by a very noisy group fairly close to us but I guess that could happen anywhere

We booked in advance and requested a nice table, we got there to be left standing at reception for some time before we were taken to a bog standard awful back table with no view and nothing special about it.

There were people rocking up in shorts and flip flops that got better tables. The waitress took the order but we got our starters before our drinks (highly irritating) and then told than they didn’t have the champagne I had requested, after they were chased.

We main course duck salad was horrendous! Rock hard duck and dehydrated salad. Not what you expect from the Bluebird.

Deserts were fine but nothing to write home about.

Shocking and no effort really to apologise to take the time to rectify the issue. We won’t be spending an special occasions there again.

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.
