Absolutely delicious. Great ambiance. The chicken and French toast was so good my friend had started to eat off my plate. Don’t love the Hibiscus Bubbles drink but the food was fantastic. I’ll definitely be back.

Loved everything.
They did seat us in the back room when the beautiful front of the restaurant was empty. A little odd but the food was fantastic.

The food was top-notch! Local and organic when possible, and well prepared. The heirloom tomato appetizer was the best I have ever had. We were still talking about our wines several days later. We will definitely be returning!

We were visiting from California and found Blue Bird Bistro on Open Table. It was so charming! The service and food were both excellent. I wish I would have taken pictures of our meals, especially the heart shaped biscuits.

Sunday brunch.
Food was ok - tofu scramble wasn’t flavorful and biscuit wasn’t fluffy - could have doctored it up with jam, but they were out…of jam…during Sunday Brunch. Server and environment were wonderful.

We stopped in for a birthday breakfast and were pleasantly surprised by the very cool vibe. The food was above expectations - simply delicious! We had the French toast and egg scramble and the chicken and biscuit. We had to wait a little while but it was 100% worth it. I highly recommend!

The Blue Bird Bistro staff is working hard to maintain a safe environment for diners both indoors and outdoors. The meal was as scrumptious as we remembered it to be before Covid. The cocktail menu stupendous. Be brave and go visit them.

We were disappointed, as we always loved in past. The food was very slow in coming out. My Eggs Benedict was cold; the English muffin was hard and tough to cut. It was at least 30 minutes between order and food being brought to table. It was noisy, as room was crowded and most of surfaces are hard. Just not a good experience this time.

Our server was excellent. The manager and staff successfully finished serving our family in under an hour because we had a church service to attend. The food was delicious. The only thing we could say needs attention is that regular dishes should be used instead of paper plates.

I have gotten the same server each time I have come. Each time the experience has been slow and inattentive. The restaurant has been at low capacity during our visits.

We have had good memorable experiences at Bluebird in the past. This was our first visit since Covid. Unfortunately, the food quality had gone down hill. Pancakes were tasteless, bison sausage tasted like poorly seasoned liver, tomato basil soup was salty with dried basil and more like a pasta sauce and the fried tofu was a weird cornmeal flavor. The salmon entree with vegetables was liked. Although the veggies looked like they came from a frozen bag. Our server was pleasant and attentive. Sadly, it was one of our favorite places and we won’t be going back.

Food took 40 minutes and it was cold. All the servers looked frantic. Too many people crammed into one room despite COVID restrictions. Very disappointed compared to last time we visited.

We are big fans of blue bird cafe but we were so disappointed with our meal. Our dinner was served on paper plates? Didn't make any sense because we had real silverware and wine glasses? I ordered the salmon with mashed potatoes. My meal arrived with salmon and rice? Not a fan of rice, I was told " we ran out of potatoes" I would have changed my order had I know this. Trying to support our favorite places during this time but this was disappointing.

We went here for Valentine’s Day. This was probably the worst meal I’ve ever been served at a restaurant. It cost over $150 for 2 people. The first course was advertised as a beet and black bean medallions. It was actually a black bean burger patty served on a paper plate. The center was lava hot and the edges still cold. This had clearly been microwaved and then served. The rest of the meal was worse. We couldn’t eat any of it and had to eat afterwards at home. The waiter seemed uninterested in the fact that each plate went back with all the food it had come with.

The service and ambience were excellent. The food was great in general, but the soup was just blended up green onions with ketchup drizzled on top. And the scallops had sand in them (maybe that's normal). Finally, the food was served on paper plates. In my opinion this is totally unacceptable when you are dropping $100 on dinner. I do really appreciate that they serve local foods that are organic, grass fed, et cetera.

We were seated under the music speaker. Service was incredibly slow and it was empty. The food was pretty bad- the flavor was off and the value of the food was not good. I will not be returning and I do not recommend this place for breakfast.

Menu for Restaurant week was disappointing. Salmon was dry. Stock dish was okay but not for the price. Food was served on paper plates which was odd. Not sure if it was due to COVID
