This was our first visit to the Bluebird and we were pleasantly surprised at the lively atmosphere and great service and above all the superb food.

Some waiters were either not properly trained or were simply uncaring. Not much of an apology when one of them spilled our drinks/cocktails and ruined my dress and my daughter’s shoes. Small consolation, another waiter said they would not be charging us for our cocktails.
When we were eventually sitted at our table, the food and drinks were good, but they managed to spoil the evening yet again by bringing a plate with a candle decorated with the words Happy Birthday when 2 members of my party were not at the table and before the dessert menus were brought to to us.
As we live locally we have been to Bluebird either upstairs or downstairs numerous times before but I will think twice about going back again. Shame!

Took my niece here for her 18th birthday.
The server was wonderful and after hearing me say ‘happy birthday’, bought a slice of cake with a candle at the end of the meal - unprompted! Very impressed.
I’ve not been to the Bluebird for a good few years because it became so bad for too long - but it’s picked itself back up and delivered a delicious meal in lovely surroundings. Thank you!

We had a wonderful meal after the Chelsea flower show. It was my wife's birthday and she really enjoyed it. They accommodated her father in his wheelchair with no bother and were very helpful. It is always a great atmosphere at Bluebird and we found the food had returned to its old, high standard.

Our first time to the restaurant and decided to visit prior to going to the flower show. The place is amazing, lovely ambience upstairs and the waiter, dan, was brilliant excellent service. As for the food and wine absolutely delicious, we had the shoulder of lamp to share and the house white and can’t fault either. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others, lovely experience xx

If you want chicken... you’re more likely to get a better meal for 1/3 of the price at Nando’s. Full of bones.. was more like a thigh than a breast. Originally asked for chateaubriand but said no more left (7.30 booking) and that instead we could have two steaks for the increased price. When we arrived we were early so were told to take a seat at the bar, our 7.30 table booking time came and went and no one came from us - in the end we had to go and ask at reception about our table. Waiters kept duplicating role and constantly asking how everything was, but not appearing to pay much attention. Brought wrong wine, then looked at us as if it was our fault. Complained at the end, told us they receive lots of great reviews and that ‘at least the service was good’ as he continued to make jokes. I’m not shy of paying money for good food, but we paid £150 pounds for three chicken thighs, a portion of chips and a portion of broccoli, 5 drinks (12 for a pimms is a little excessive) and two Eton mess and a coffee. Next time I’ll go to Nando’s for the same - won’t return here or recommend it to anyone.

The restaurant has wonderful decor and the staff were very attentive. The food was pleasant and well prepared, but more suited to a Sunday lunch than the brunch that we had been anticipating. Overall, a very nice experience.

Sunday evening in restaurants can be a bit hit and miss but not at the Bluebird. The service was friendly from the girl at the desk to the waiting staff. The menu is varied with interesting veggie options and a good wine list with 500ml carafes on offer. The food was delicious and the triple cooked chips were worth the journey alone. Looking forward to going back soon.

The food was average, the time for the food to reach our table was too long and the cleanliness of the restaurant was horrendous- I asked to changed my glass 3 times and it was still dirty with a bad smell, the plates stunk as well.
The servers were very pushy as well.

I wouldn’t go back again

Had booked a table to sit outside but was told bookings were only for the restaurant upstairs. So we were sent upstairs, as there was an hour and a half waiting for the seats outside. Was looking forward to sitting outside in the sun and have a quick bite not a proper sit down dinner.

The overall experience was super. Only one minor draw back was the upselling by the waiter. We ate from the fixed £25 for 2 courses with a glass of wine menu which is great value. We will certainly return again.

Very attractive environment at evening thanks to lots of green, space and glass ceiling/large windows which must make it extremely lightly at lunch. Impeccable and extremely fast service (probably too much) with excellent dishes combining fantasy, delicacy and right portions. Only recommendation if you look for a quiet occasion is to avoid it on a Friday or Saturday evening as the level of voice and music due to the proximity of the bar doesn’t allow to have a conversation.

Poor service - waited at the bar for over 10 mins for service - girls on reception were on the phone and couldn’t find any staff !!
All very casual - too casual.
Building work below very disturbing and no offer to move to a different table which may have been quieter - just rather disappointing

The restaurant is absolutely beautiful. It is such a fantastic place, the food was amazing. Perfect sized portions, amazing sauces, delicious sides. We were here for a birthday and the staff even brought out a dessert as a surprise. By far the best part is the service. Every member of staff was extremely welcoming and friendly, they were very attentive and wonderful to chat to. I am vegan and had a delicious meal but there were limited options. Without hesitation we would return.

Food was sensational, couldn't really fault anything. I felt my choices were better more so than my date's, which he agreed. The starter; scallops in tarragon and lime with creamy foam was simply lovely, then I had the lightly spiced chicken with kale, again another top choice, it was yummy and to finish, I had the chocolate cheesecake with blood oranges and sorbet which was divine, just perfect! My date had the custard and nutmeg tart which had an unusual goats cheese taste to it, so I was just thrilled with my choices. On a different note for the restaurant itself, whilst the decor was stunning and the restaurant service was all great, there does need to be a bit more lighting overall, not everyone can read the menu in dim surroundings, also the music was bit loud and grating for the restaurant, totally understand for the bar area but not appropriate for when you're dining. A bit of a letdown when you visited the loos, great to see Miller Harris hand wash & creams but no hand dryers and very very poor water pressure from taps (not great on a rainy cold especially). I was also disappointed to be told I was unable to change my reservation back by half an hour, to 7.30pm. It was my birthday and I wanted to catch a film beforehand, my date was coming from Scotland, explained all this to the the man on the phone who was friendly but couldn't accommodate which was surprising, as when we did dine at 7 and then an hour later or so I could see PLENTY of tables that were empty, so not sure why this couldn't be done! Very let down by this.

En la reserva indiqué que una persona era intolerante al gluten. Si pusieron pan sin gluten, pero no aconsejaron nada sobre la carta. Deficiente en ese sentido. Los camareros estaban muy cerca y discutían entre ellos, no me pareció apropiado en un sitio así. La música está muy alta y no se puede casi hablar, esto es muy habitual en Londres.
