Bittersweet, as it was their last night. Great seeing John Sheeley again & hope to see him resurface soon. Our server amber was gracious & did her best with limited resources.
Best wishes for the future!
So very sad Mockingbird is closing. It was our favorite place and the sommelier introduced us to our top 3 favorite wines.
Excellent eatery. Food and service have always been top-notch. Enjoyed the salmon this time and it was cooked to perfection; flaked off the fork. Sad to see this place closing shortly.
Perfect for a happy hour.
We had such a wonderful meal! Everyone loved each dish and the wonderful wines as well. We are just so deeply sorry to see Mockingbird close! We hope to see them in a new location soon! All the best to Chef John Sheely, his sweet wife and wonderful staff!
Love the ambiance of this place and the food was very good. The value however is just not there. Dinner for 2 with only 2 glasses of wine should not be $200+. There simply are too many other options in the Heights with comparable menus that can be enjoyed for a fraction of Mockingbird Bistro.
Disappointed also that after making a reservation in advance (for a Sunday) that they sit us on the bench side of the restaurant with little or no privacy from the people 24 inches away. Many other tables were empty so not sure why we were relegated to the area of the restaurant with the least amount of appeal.
So glad we were able to say goodbye to Chef Sheely and staff. Food and drinks were wonderful as always. We'll sorely miss the Mockingbird. Can't wait till we hear Chef Sheely's plans for the next venture.
A little disappointed to be honest. It may be that the place is closing in a couple of weeks since they will not be able to keep the location, but it was somewhat lackluster for the price. The French Onion Soup was nothing to write home about, the duck with grilled cauliflower was quite bland, the beer and wine selections were pretty poor since they had a buyout, the steak tartar was a not finely cut. May have been good in its heyday but not now.
So sad to see them close! We have been going to this restaurant since the 90s.
This is a tried and true go-to special occasion restaurant that never disappoints. The food and service is always excellent. I am so sorry to see it go!
