We had a nice breakfast here. The food was tasty but the Eggs Benedict could have benefitted from a small garnish to add colour. The server was pleasant but service was very slow. I waited 15 minutes for a simple coffee.
Very nice restaurant and good place to bring dogs!
Brilliant food , lovely atmosphere , friendly staff, quick service. Would highly recommend
Lovely outdoor space. Most of the dishes met expectations but one burger was really dry.
The burgers looked good but the halloumi and tomato salad was basically just a bowl of tomatoes and a bit of halloumi. Had to add salt and pepper to give it much taste. Disappointing and expensive for what it was.
Nice venue spoilt by terrible service
Bar food at best!! Not a quality restaurant but reasonably priced.
The menu didn’t match what was provided on OpenTable so it was a bit of a let down.
Service was outstanding. The girls were so lovely and we had such a good laugh with them
This was our first visit to The Blackbird after reading great reviews. We weren't disappointed. The service was really friendly and welcoming. We ate from the brunch menu. The food arrived quickly and was tasty. The cocktail menu looked very tempting. We'll be back!
Really enjoyed the food and setting at the Blackbird. Such a nice outdoor space to catch up with friends after so long. Lovely food & great service.
Friendly and helpful staff with fresh and delicious well priced food.
Great food and cocktails
A good experience. Shown to our table quickly. Efficient service. A clean and safe environment with a good ambience. Quite pricey though but will go back
Fun! Would come again
Loved the watermelon cocktail. This most stunning vibes x
Love the blackbird. Friendly staff. AMAZING PINA COLADAS IN VASES
Prompt friendly service, great drinks options, nice inside and out. One of my all time favourite Edinburgh bars.
Afternoon out with friends. We had an excellent time and nothing was too much trouble for the team at Blackbird
Blackbird was closed although we got a confirmation email that our table was reserved and waiting for us. You would not have it on the booking system while it's closed.
We booked a family lunch on 23rd December - confirmation emails received - turned up and doors locked! Hugely disappointing and no apology received...
Reading the menu, I was looking forward to the food, but the execution was awful. The chicken wings had hardly any meat and were burnt to the point they were chewy. There was hardly any sauce. The fries were the cheap type which are basically just hollow with not much potato. The burgers were ok, but the Buffalo burger never had all the ingredients on it. So many better places doing similar food, so unlikely to recommend.
Have been here a number of times for lunch. Really good all round
Great food, great value, will be recommending to mates for sure
Fascinating place.Outside &inside attractive decor.Delightful staff.
Can't recall the music.Very handy for buses cinema,theatre,charity shops.Toilets worth a visit.Would try again but not a burger.Like that it's dog friendly.
I love the Blackbird. The staff are the loveliest and give you just the right amount of attention. The garden is beautiful. Food great, beer great. Everything you want, really!
On a previous visit had good food, this time it was pretty awful and wouldn't go back again. Very limited menu - all very much unhealthy fried food. I had a chicken caesar salad and the chicken was tough, fried and inedible.
My partner and I cane in for drinks only on a Saturday afternoon. The welcome was lovely and warm and the staff were great throughout! :) Really lovely, high quality cocktails and beers on offer and we were served very quickly. The inside of the bar is gorgeous and had a relaxed atmosphere. We were sad we didn’t have more time there but will definitely be back soon!
Good food, service a little slow but would def go again
Lovely afternoon. Yummy food x
Chicken burger and chips were only luke warm which was disappointing.
Good food & service provided by friendly staff following the guidelines by wearing masks etc. Ended up in their beer garden as it was such a beautiful day. Would definitely visit again next time visiting our daughter in Edinburgh
The bar was OK, brought down by the service - guy behind the bar was just weirdly rude!
Very helpful great service even while obeying social distancing measurws
Overall we had a lovely evening but I was s bit disappointed that we were being asked to vacate our table after an hour and a half. As it was we were leaving to see a show but had we wanted a second course we wouldn't have had time. There was no offer of the menu back for dessert and it had not been mentioned at time of booking or as we sat we would only have it for that time.I would expect to have a table for a minimum of two hours.
Nice place friendly staff. Food was not great and dining area quite noisy. As a pre theatre eatery it was ok. Would go back for drink as it has atmosphere
Our table was in a very dark alcove. Chicken was very dry.
This was a lovely setting and close to the King's Theatre, which was perfect for our needs the day we went. The service was outstanding - really customer focussed and considerate. The food was good, though we felt that some of the dishes lacked a little flavour or the right balance of flavour for us. For example the chicken and potato dish - the potatoes were very tasty, but the chicken itself was a little bland. I would go back for the location, service and ambiance. And if the balance of flavour in the dishes was looked at, then I would be scoring it 5+.
The service here is good- however the food isnt! Rather pricey for what you get and not that tasty!
Cocktails excellent - went down very easily. Range of food very good - something for everyone, in my opinion. Not too quiet, but not too noisy. Grown up - no kids. Very enjoyable.
