I would go back! Perhaps I ordered the wrong dish on my first try of this restaurant. I ordered the Cassoulet and it was pummeled with spices - no subtlety there. I never send back food but did so in this case. One of my dinner companions said he has gotten it before and liked it, so perhaps it was just an off night fo the chef. To replace my cassoulet, I ordered an impossible meat cheeseburger with fries and that was quite good. They didn't charge me for the cassoulet and the staff were very solicitous to make sure I was happy with my next dish - on both counts that was good to see. My companions all enjoyed their food so I'm going to assume that my cassoulet was a one off bad order. In short: very cute interior, GREAT staff, relatively cheap fare (if I remember correctly entrees ran $16 to $22), somewhat limited wine list by the glass but they have a good selection of beers. One of my friends got the beer flight and we had a good time sampling that.

I was pleasantly surprised by the service and the food. It was excellent, however the noise level was a bit loud. It would be hard to hear someone sitting at the other side of the table.

terrific service, especially with accommodating food allergies. very friendly. appetizers and entrees were awesome. beer selection is great. desserts were not my favorite. mousse and waffles both had a distinct coconut flavor. initially very comfortable, but became a bit loud as more people arrived. so glad this is a neighborhood spot, as it has become a regular haunt.

We come here for the mussels-they were too small tonight. Great beer! Salmon is good.
Small amount though.
Good service.
Bring back the large mussels!!
Still like the place though.

Food was bad. I actually sent back my Steak Frites because the steak was like a rubber dog toy. It belonged at a Denny’s, not a $32 option on a menu. Not confident the next attempt of the steak would be any better, I changed to the burger. It was ok. Could have had more flavor.

The ambiance is cool with the bricks. But I’m sure the layout of the bricks amplified the sound in there because you could barely hear someone across from you.

Belgian beers were good which is the only reason I’d go back. Sit at the bar and have a few beers.

Waiter and staff were really nice which made the bad food even more frustrating.

Service was terrific, especially accommodating to food allergies. Delicious chicken liver mousse, mussels and frites and green bean salad. Must admit that the pot de creme for dessert sounded terrific, but was very disappointing in flavor. Hubby loved the beer selection. Quite loud for dinner, despite being in a corner, and table for 2 was on the small side, especially for mussels with an extra pot for shells, but will definitely go back, most likely at an off time so it may be a bit quieter.

Amazing craft beers brewed right here! Creative foods, great vibe, and cozy atmosphere. Very clean, too. The only reason it is not a five-star review is that we had to wait for a while when we needed some service and our server was nowhere to be found. Will be back though and would definitely recommend to my friends.

Great Happy Hour menu and prices. Very open restaurant, service was great, food was very very good. I would recommentd the Brussels Sprouts, the Wagu Burger, a beer called Happy Happy Hour, (even though it's not on the Happy Hour menu) and the Black Current Spritz. We also had the Moules Frites in both traditional and curry. I didn't eat them, but everyone else at my table said they were delicious.

Can’t rate the food. Because we sat down and waited for about 15 minutes while our server took order from literally 3 tables that sat down after us even after I walked up to him and let him know we were ready to order... I couldn’t see myself dining there so I left :)

We've been to bluebird multiple times since they've opened and it's become our default dinner spot if we don't know where to go. The food is great and the vegan options are some of the best you'll find, the beers are very good and to style, and the space is so cool that you forget you're in the valley and not in some European brewery cellar.

Disappointing

I went on a Saturday night. The noise was overwhelming even though the restaurant was about 85% full. Would not go back for this reason alone.

Initially, the service was slow, though once someone came over it was fine.

The Brussels sprouts were OK, well roasted but a bit too much vinegar.
The place joins the annoying LA trend of charging for bread by toasting it and putting it on the appetizer menu. The mussels were inconsistent: some huge and juicy, some tiny and dry. The sauce was tepid.
The fries that came with it were too thick and not crisp.
My friend had the steak frites and it was over cooked and drowned in sauce.
The green beans were perfect.

Great to have this place in the Valley. Only criticism is that the mussels are served in the lid of the mussel pot, rather than the base of the pot, i.e, the base is used for empty shells, rather than the lid. The lid is half the size of the base, resulting in very small servings of mussels!!! Nice trick but not appreciated as a fan of mussels who has eaten at French and Belgian brasseries all over the world.
