The Rib eye here is amazing and so is the Malfadini. This is great for informal dining.

Aircondition was broken so the space was unbearably hot. Food was not good either the new yorker was just a lot of cheese and hollandaise for no reason. Very disappointed...

although i booked for the Set Menu offer: 2 courses for £20, 3 courses for £25. They did not offer the menu, they gave me the standard menu. They put me in an embarrassing situation with my guest. I did not get the offer. I remember they did the same about a year ago, I had to remind them that I had the offer. All they do is to get you in the restaurant and sell you full price. It is an abuse. the booking using open table does not work, they do not honour the booking. Very bad

Had dinner with a friend.
Asked the waiter if I could have something that was on another dish and instead of saying that he would ask the chef I r ceivdd a very direct NO! Followed by an uncomfortable silence. Apart from that enjoyed the evening.

Restaurant was barely full. Staff shoved us in table at back by wall- had to ask to be re-seated near to a window.

Had to call staff over every time we wanted to order. Were not helpful when asking to order off a la carte menu as well as set.

Food was expensive for 3 pieces of dry lamb on a plate with no side... or even the tiniest vegetable garnish at all.

Get better food and service at the pubs around Chelsea where I live, like the Cross Keys.

I am a lover of dining out around west London and do all the time. I rarely have bad things to say, but to say this was poor would be an understatement. I would be likely to highly recommend friends and family do NOT dine here.

Poor poor experience

Everything was great but maisonette portions were very small. We didn't have starters or dessert, just main & drinks and it was £85 and we went to another restaurant to fill up after.

I would visit again if there was a theatre menu or perhaps larger mains.

We were celebrating my Mum and brothers birthday. A beautiful quirky building, full of colours, art and trees. Perfect service from the waitress - she was polite and attentive. Food was brilliant especially the lobster spaghetti, the lamb rump and chicken mains which went down well with a fabulous Merlot. We all had a lovely time. I would definitely go back to this restaurant again. Thank you for a lovely experience.

I have been going to Bluebird for many years (very occasionally as I do not live in the UK) and enjoy it every time. Great atmosphere, great buzz, great food and great bar scene. Many guests only come for drinks, not a bad way to enjoy this place either. Recommend for dates, fun night out with friends or business colleagues but probably less so for families with younger children. Still trendy and buzzy after all these years.

Went for my 21st birthday, had a lovely waiter serving us. Brought out a desert for my birthday which was sweet. Food was incredible, especially the chateaubriand... Would definitely be coming back. Only downfall was the previous mention of my partner having a dairy intolerance and nothing was mentioned. Overall an incredible experience and a great birthday meal!

Really good.
Lovely lovely time and fantastic service and food. My only gripe was that our mains were served on small side plates which was annoying! Please serve your mains on a dinner plate! The small plate immediately makes you feel you’re being ripped off. My portion was also very small.

Had a great evening with a friend here after a wedding show. Had the set menu of which the main course of cod and garlic mash was delicious. My friend had the salad for starter which she found far too acidic and didn't really enjoy it but again, her main course was very nice. At £20 for two courses, it was a very good deal so we would definitely go back.
