    I am sorry to learn that Bluebird London is closing on December 31st. I was also shocked to learn, when we were seated for our 7:30 reservation, that the kitchen would be closing at 8:09, on a Thursday night during the Xmas holiday season. We were somewhat rushed & not too happy. I hope a very nice restaurant will open in its place in the near future.

    We had a 6:15 pm reservation before an event. We had not seen a server by 6:45 pm so I inquired at the host stand. By 7 pm we still had not been visited by a server so we left. Another table near us walked out at the same time. They had been seated before us.

    Service was non existent. When I asked waitress to take a photo because it was my Bday she said not now, maybe later when she has time. She came once and after and we never saw her again. We had to have hostess take our dessert order. We then had to catch a bus boy to get a check. No one even said sorry to make u wait or switch a waitress.

    We were seated at the back of the restaurant, which was empty with long tables that had not been cleaned and right by the restroom which wasn’t working. The food was good but the ambiance was a downer given how much we spent.

    Went here because they had a decent kids menu. Server was not pleasant. Never checks on the food deliveries. Food was mediocre. Decent if you need a stop over but would not make a plan to return if other options available.

    I liked the food and the service at this place, but suddenly you can’t make a reservation. I made one on OpenTable and it was canceled by the restaurant with no explanation. They gave a phone number to call, which I did, but no one answered and no one returned my call. Their recording says to go to their own website, but there is no place to make a reservation there. So I would say: no, I won’t eat there again.

    Very disappointed that the band was removed from the main room, especially without notifying previous guests so they could change seating if desired. I brought friends from out of town because of the music and found it to be too far away to hear. The music is a huge piece of the experience and it's much nicer in the main room. I'm not sure if I will return and I'm a pretty frequent guest.

    An oasis of calm and good taste, Bluebird is a place for good conversations, with good food and excellent service (Brandon, hostess Danisa). On weekday nights the place isnt at all crowded. Prices are not low, though not unreasonably high considering what a great location they have, but the prix fixe isn’t that much of a bargain, at least if you plan on ordering the superb steak Tatar and sirloin steak, so do the arithmetic and consider ordering a la carte.

    We loved the understated elegance of the room and the excellent views of the Park, the Columbus statue and the Maine memorial. The menu is varied, though two of us took the prix fixe (a good deal at $55, except that steak is $15 extra). The food was sophisticated and beautifully presented, and the service was attentive, backed up by a very helpful manager. Steak Tatar and steak are highly recommended.

    Made reservations for Sunday brunch based on online reviews and pics. The food was bland and very greasy. Very forgettable and not worth the money. The view overlooking Columbus Circle was the only part of the brunch. Overall, a waste of money.

    40th Wedding Anniversary. Staff never acknowledged the occasion. Food not as good as we remembered from last year. Waitress never even inquired if we wanted more coffee. We probably will not come back to this restaurant.

    The atmosphere is lovely and the food & drinks were good… but the service was slow which seemed strange as they weren’t crowded… and they forgot the chicken for my entree. They were very nice about the oversight tho. May go back for drinks at the bar.

    I r was my daughter’s birthday. We got there on time, restaurant was in a great location. We got there and we were greeted and welcomed. I had bought 3 vouchers from pulds. I am a fan of pulds it has taken me to new places in nyc I never been. Everything was fine our waiter greeted us and I had mentioned that we had the pulds vouchers and she claimed she did not know what that was? That she would ask the manager. I felt some kind a way because I had called before to let them know I had a 5th person and that I did have the vouchers they said it was ok. It took time for her to come back and take our orders and the manager never came. She did take our order and everything was ok. I was not a big fan of the food. Ever all it was ok. My suggestion would be to keep the employee updated on what the restaurant is offering the public. It’s so important to make people welcome .

    SO HAPPY!! 🥰 excellent food; great flavor and quite generous! The Profiterol was huge and I thought I wouldn't finish it; but when I tasted it it melted in my mouth because it was super soft and the strawberry cream was incredible! the cucumber and ginger cocktail very good! I am very satisfied; the attention of the waiters super fast and very attentive 100% From the hostess to everyone who works very kind and attentive in everything; the bartender, the waiters, the manager all. I take away a great experience; This will definitely be one of my favorite places and I will return.

    Love this location, but was a little disappointed that there wasn’t a 3-course restaurant week meal offered, only 2-course. That of course, is personal preference. Also, the carpet is pretty dirty & if that could be cleaned, would be an improvement. Our waitress was fabulous & the food very good!!
