Always a wonderful visit. Brunch selections perfect. Always try to go early or late as it is a bit noisy.
I feel like this place continues to go downhill. Their menu is constantly changing and even a couple of the things they had available on their menu, they weren't adequately stocked up for. They couldn't make a specific sauce for one of their menu items because they were out of cilantro, a key ingredient and the main reason why we ordered that particular item. We didn't know until the food came out either. They're slower than normal, service has gone downhill a bit. Just not really sure what's happening with this place.
Wonderful neighborhood spot! Great beer, wine, and food selection. The French Dip is excellent!!
Everything was very good, except for the fries. They were old tasting.
It made me feel special that our table had our name on it when we were seated. It took until after we were half way thru our appetizers to get our beer and wine that was ordered prior to our food. Food was good. I will most likely return.
Food was quite good. A little loud, but it was Saturday night. The service could be better. Three times our waitress said she would bring more water. But otherwise I would recommend.
The Smoked Salmon Benedict was really not good. There was a small amount of ground up salmon under a poorly poached egg, on a mushy, small English muffin. There was a little sauce of some kind on it, that was hard to define. The breakfast potatoes were cooked well, but were seriously over salted. Unfortunately, my companion ordered the same thing, so I can’t address any other dishes.
I arrived for my restaurant week reservation at 7:30 5 minutes early. They were unprepared for the business it would bring. Hostess was taking names for walk-ins without seating 1st those with reservations. At 7:55 and seemingly no end in sight, I had enough and left.
Love the ambiance. Food was interesting and good but $11 for an ounce of scotch was ridiculous. Came with another couple and we both agreed we’d give it another try. Service was only so so
My lunch group really enjoyed our visit to Blackbird and would definitely go again.
Great place. Great value. Great food. Great service from Sam.
Blackbird is what Denver needs... neighborhood restaurants. I would love to see them expand the itialian food selections, but it's a great fun spot in wash park
We all had the Hamburgers. SOO Very GOOD. Service was somewhat slow and waiter rather gruff, but food and atmosphere made up for it.
Great brunch experience and great service! Loved the Colorado steak and eggs with green Chile and the blackberry pizza!
The group enjoyed their meals and did not feel rushed or not wanted. Our server was very knowledgeable regarding any questions concerning the menu.
We did trivia; fun place to do trivia.
Appeared understaffed: waitress had too many tables, kitchen overwhelmed with large party, wait for dinner was too long, food good,
But Overall, not great.
Great Happy Hour! Mussels, truffle fries, Brussel sprouts, Manhattan was all awesome!
Everything was great but it took a long time for the appetizers and the a long time for our entrees to arrive. Seems like they need more help in the kitchen. Everything was delicious and prepared perfectly.
Great brunch with cozy holiday atmosphere. Service was on point and super friendly.
Service, food and drinks were excellent! The oysters were fresh, the bar knew how to make a great Old Fashioned! The server was perfect!
Great brunch as usual. Thanksgiving weekend so not quite as crowded though noise levels always an issue.
Had my favorite Omelette Pizza with an extra scrambled egg to fill it out. Tiare was our waitress and suggested a side of green chili to go with it. As a dipping sauce was perfect! Not to spicy. And great for my leftovers
Thank you so much for the great review Lauren.
Good food, great atmosphere, friendly service, strong drinks!
Thank you Ellen for the 5 star review. Just awesome.
I really enjoy Blackbird. I have gone there with my family since the my parents moved to Denver. This past Wednesday we went to enjoy a nice dinner before Thanksgiving, and all was great until my boyfriend left his Yeti water bottle there. We called the restaurant no more than an hour later and they said they did not see it. We were some of the few remaining tables in the restaurant so I don't believe that our 6 top was sat at again. It's really unfortunate staff supposedly did not see it and return it to us. It was our fault for leaving it, but working in the hospitality industry, I continuously try to help people out and not take things that aren't mine.
Shannon - I am glad that you enjoy coming in and we are happy to have you. I wanted to clarify something on your review however. Our sever, Mary Kate, ran out to the parking lot and gave your water bottle to your friends who took it home for you and acknowledged it. We certainly do not take things that belong to our guests and hope you got it back. We love Yeti water bottles as well. Must be a Colorado thing. :-)
Normally I really enjoy dining at Blackbird but the service was pretty terrible this time. It took 20 mins to get glass of wine. We were there an hour before receiving our food while tables that arrived after us received theirs first. It would have been better had the server acknowledged it, but she didn’t. The wings are really good. The simple salad is good but definitely overpriced for what it is - “simple” is a very accurate name and not worth ordering.
Thank you Mitch for taking the time to review. We have sent this to our team to use as a training guide and we certainly hope you have better service next time.
Excellent grilled oysters, wine selection, chicken sandwich and service by MaryKay!
Service was slow (10 min to get a cappuccino) although for awhile we were the ONLY people there, we came when they opened on a Sunday. Then, they were out of 2 of the 3 things we wanted to order (shrimp, brownie). The server explained they had been hit hard after this week’s snow storm, but at the very least someone in the kitchen should have informed her before they opened, so she could tell us upfront what was not available. She tried to make it right by taking off 25%, which felt appropriate , but it was still a disappointing breakfast and I will think twice before trying Blackbird again.
This is a very nice neighborhood restaurant. The food we had -- the calamari, the brussells sprouts, and a pizza -- were outstanding, much better than typical bar food. The atmosphere is warm and comfortable, and the service was pleasantly friendly. We will definitely go back.
Our waiter was the highlight of the meal but the bartending missed the mark when he made Old Fashioneds with Fireball Whiskey - yuk. I had a gin and tonic and a martini and both glasses were sticky. The food was good, not great, but the restaurant was a good central location for meeting with friends.
Best gluten free pizza around!
Great place for any occasion with fantastic food! We were very pleased
We waited a VERY long time for our food as they had multiple problems but the manager worked very hard to make it up to us. We got a free dinner (for 4) and a gift card! The food was great and so we will go back.
Although the food was good. The service was terrible. We received our food pin an untimely manner and out of order. When tried to discuss with the waitress she totally ignored us. Had to call on the manger to take care of things. We were actually forced to go up to the bar counter to serve ourselves on refills of drinks and get salad dressing.
Don’t think I will be going back.
We have eaten at Blackbird several times. Our food was delicious, service was great, but we were seated next to a table with a man who talked the ENTIRE time, and was very loud. I believe that he had been vaccinated with a phonograph needle!
The setting was super cute. The service was good, and our drinks/food were delicious.
The Blackbird is a wonderful "local pub" for the neighborhood
Salmon was delicious
Food was good and well prepared. No “ wow” factor on taste. Service was excellent!
