Few restaurants, even fine dining establishments, can boast an excellent wait staff. But Eddie at Blackbird Kitchen is a gem who takes his job seriously and is clearly enamored of both the restaurant itself as well as the chef in the kitchen. He explains the dishes on the menu with clarity and enthusiasm and is a joy to have as a server. The menu, while limited, is nonetheless well thought out and everything we had, from the hummus and whipped ricotta with lemon slathered on grilled bread, to the crispy savory wings and burger were excellent. A $16 rice tag for the brisket and ribeye mix burger was a bit high considering that it's size was closer to a slider than a full burger. It was also a bit underseasoned. The french fries that came with the burger were good, not great, but better than most. We skipped dessert but just barely, since the three items on the menu, described to us by Eddie, all sounded worth the calories. Prices are fair in view of the quality of the food. --EastEndFoodie

A fantastic place to eat. The food is so worth the trip. The service is also fantastic and friendly.
The small plates here are a great value in portion and results. Highly recommend Blackbird.

Always love coming to Blackbird’s and they keep me coming back with a new menu every time! The drinks by Jonathon are phenomenal- he can make anything you request the best you’ve ever had! The drink menu- don’t get intimidated by all the different types- try something new! You won’t be disappointed! Now the food- the pasta is a MUST. Anything pasta related. Seriously, the owner hand makes the pasta fresh DAILY. Be warned- once you have real pasta here, it will basically ruin pasta for you anywhere else. FYI This is Tapas style! They have small and large plates, and I strongly suggest sharing a few so you can try everything before they change the menu!!!

We had all small plates : black truffle arancini with parm sauce , (2) ricotta ravioli with pesto, pork meatballs, sriracha bell & evans organic chicken wings, spaghetti with pecorino and fresh black pepper - and topped it off with a flourless chocolate cake!

All 4 people left happily stuffed:) 5 stars all around!

Clearly they do not have sufficient wait staff and thus service is spotty. Drinks are very good but pricey. Food is very well prepared but portions are on the small side and also pricey

Ok dining experience but don t go here if you are famished

I can’t speak to the cocktails because we didn’t get anything to drink but water but the food was delicious. The server was very attentive and helpful with picking from the menu but then seemed to forget about us when it came to dessert. He was very apologetic when we get his attention so I think it might have been just an oversight as the place get busier. I would definitely go back. The table next to us said they were regulars and have enjoyed everything on the menu so we couldn’t go wrong in our selections. Portions are tapas style but large enough that we order 5 dishes for two people and then split a dessert. Left feeling satisfied without being stuffed.

This restaurant shouldn’t be on open table. I’ve always had wonderful experiences with open table. Walked in at 9pm tonight with a party of 4 reservation. Male host said it shouldn’t be too long and said maybe 15 minutes more. So we cheerfully waited at the bar for a spot. After a few minutes we secured a space at the bar and ordered cocktails. Great. 15 minutes passed, then 20, 30, 45 minutes..at 10pm our drinks were long gone and I was starving and embarrassed because i invited my guests here for my husbands birthday. I approached host to ask him if he was aware of my reservation he said “yeah I’m trying...”. Very unprofessional and poorly managed. At 10:06 we tapped out. Made a call to the restaurant up the block which had a table open, so we paid the bar tab and left. If you can’t honor an open table reservation within 15 minutes of when you’ve promised it, then don’t take open table. I’m embarrassed for the managers handling of the entire situation. Shame on him. More than an hour past reservation without acknowledging? Unacceptable. I’m baffled.

The food was excellent. The server was annoying. She came over very quickly and we weren't ready. She kept coming over and we began to feel very rushed. We felt rushed throughout the entire meal. She literally came over to our table every 20 minutes or so to see if we were ready for the check. She made it clear that someone was waiting for our table. I would still come back though.

The food was good at the bar. The beer selection was nice albeit insanely overpriced. $9 for an 8 ounce pour is ridiculous. The bartender was completely disengaged and we sat at a pretty empty bar (4 other people) for a long time with empty drinks. The owner(?) was super friendly though and very attentive, so there's that. I'd come back but probably not just to sit at the bar.

The food was outstanding. Small plates. Long wait for the food to come out (over 30 minutes) but it was very tasty. The bartender needs to attend Customer Facing Training. He seemed very bothered to be there at all. No eye contact, no "thank you" at any point, very long to get his attention to get another drink. At the end of the night he slammed my change on the bar and walked away. Again, not even a thank you.

Had a great time with my love and great friends. The waiter Eddie was engaging and tentative. The bartender was a serious mixologist and fun to watch.
I wish the menu was a little broader, however, everything we had was excellent.

One of my local favs, although I had a reservation we had to wait over half an hour. The first round of drinks was on the house. We weren’t asked if we wanted dessert...I think there was just a rush for the table. Food never disappoints. Agnolotti, arancini, grilled ricotta toast, mussels...are my favs.
