Blueprint is every bit as good of a meal as you will find in Birmingham. The menu is diverse and the service is always excellent. The only negative is that if is always so loud. Excellent meal!

Terrific experience. Our server Britton was informative as well as very energetic and personable. The sommelier Sean was generous with his knowledge and enthusiasm. In a city with many excellent restaurants, Blueprint is certainly among the very best.

Delicious dinner. Crab cakes were wonderful. As was the sheepshead and the pork. Our waiter was personable and friendly! This restaurant is just an overall great experience.

Absolutely loved this place. Our first time. Had the chicken with artisan pasta which was fabulous and haven’t stopped thinking about. Server was very personable and accommodating to all needs. The only drawback was I put on open table it was for a birthday celebration and there was no mention of it. Other than that, i will be going back with my husband soon.

I love the hip laid-back but upscale vibe of Blueprint on 3rd. The chicken dish with pasta was outstanding as the chicken was moist and flavorful. My dinner date had the venison and he said it was divine. Our server was very helpful to describe dishes and offer suggestions. She was knowledgeable without being pushy. The owner came by and asked how we were enjoying our food. He asked us about our preferences and seemed genuinely interested in what we had to say. There was a quality food for the price (I couldn't finish my meal of the chicken while my date ate all of his and I wanted to try dessert but I was full!). The only negative was the group at the table behind us was VERY loud and that killed the romance for us. While this is not the restaurant's fault, we know every word they said. Perhaps some distance between tables could help? Perhaps some people are just loud? Again, not the restaurant's fault but geez! Overall, I loved it and would go back. I understand the menu changes seasonally so I'll be interested to see what is up next!

First time to eat at Blueprint was amazing; really good experience. On our second visit Friday night, Oct 4, the food was extremely poor. Sorry for the bad food review because we really like this restaurant and atmosphere. The Brussel sprout appetizer was soaked in balsamic vinegar and horrible. Same with the tuna appetizer; swimming in sauce. Cornbread appetizer seemed like it had been sitting for much too long and not fresh. Hamburger was over cooked; French fries were good and fresh. Pork tenderloin was good though. We did have a late reservation, so maybe some the main kitchen staff had already left for the night?? Thanks

The service will always make or break a restaurant meal, and in this case the server (Rachel) was fantastic. Additionally, the food and drinks were beyond expectation. Chef Huck is an artist and a caring host. Great overall experience and we'll be back!

The food was great - because of different preferences for wine, each of our party chose wine by the glass and all great, delicious options. A seemingly simple fried catfish was made sublime! Well done!! Our server, Dewaye(?sp) was great!! Impeccable service all around. We love this restaurant!

Waitress was attentive and knowledgeable. I drink a lot of water and she made sure my glass was full. Food was delicious. The fried quail with dressing and giblet gravy for a starter was awesome. Very impressive restaurant. Just a little on the noisy side but tolerable.

The food was delicious and service was impeccable. The waiter, Brittain, was very knowledgeable, provided recommendations and even some sips to taste from the wine menu. We shared the okra basket and baked oysters (melt in your mouth good). I ordered another appetizer for dinner, but the people who ordered the chicken dish raved over it! The only (slight) complaint was the noise level. We probably would have stayed for one more glass of wine, but it was hard to hear each other.

This is where we go for celebrations. Everything is always perfect! The manager or the owner or both usually come by to make sure everything is right. Must be a good place to work since many employees shave been there since they opened. Take a chance on the chef’s specials of the day. You won’t be disappointed!

Slow service for a weeknight. It took 1.5 hours to have an appetizer and 2 entrees, no alcohol. Waitress was friendly but inefficient . The food was pretty good in my opinion but my companion didn't like it at all. We were both turned off by the noise level. Birmingham has many other restaurants to try. I was disappointed because I had been curious about this place and it was my first time to try it.

We had a wonderful dinner! All of the suggestions, made by the server, were delicious. We shared the calamari and mushrooms, for our appetizers and they were cooked perfectly. Our dinners were so tasty. I had the grilled fish. YUM! My daughter had the braised beef, and it was outstanding.

Needed a nice dinner for a business client. As it turned out that cancelled and it was just me and my wife for a midweek dinner date. This was my first visit to Blueprint On 3rd and I must say it will not be my last. I think I have found a new go to spot for a nice dinner.

Probably Probably the best meal I've had in a while. Service was great. Our server was very nice and not over-bearing. Every dish was perfectly prepared. The mushroom gratin was seriously nothing but perfection. The drink menu was fun and adventurous. The adult iced coffee was spectacular. Without a doubt, B3 is worth checking out.

Food was pretty good but the staff is less than to be desired. Waiter was very talkative (about himself) and the Matre d put his hands all over the wine and kept rubbing the top of our water bottle. When he left we had to order a new bottle. Two in our part were nauseas the next morning.
