    Food was incredible, service was not bad however we found ourselves waiting 20+ minutes once finishing the meal for our checks. Two guests also had to wait on their food for quite a while when everyone else was already served. Could have been a better experience with better service

    I’ve been here several times and this time the service was lacking. Maybe just an off night for the server but it was disappointing, however we made the best of it.

    Everything about our experience was amazing. Cassidy our waitress described the specials with knowledge and passion. In fact, she did such a great job, I had a hard time deciding which meal I wanted to experience. We started with the fried green tomato and okra appetizer plus the skillet pimento cheese. My my my. For the main course, (there were 3 of us) so we decided upon the red snapper, the scallops and the grilled chicken. Everyone sampled each other’s plates and we were each amazed at the flavors and freshness. For the finale, we ordered the chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream and the owner surprised us with a lemon ice box with a blue berry sauce. Yes, we over indulged. It was delicious. Birmingham chefs are the best. James Huckaby is now one of my favorites in the great culinary city of Bham. Already looking forward to returning. Dean Robb the owner/operator greeted us while dining and upon our departure. Felt very special….kudos to another great Bham restaurant!!!

    The tables in the courtyard are spaced a part so that it doesn't feel crowded. We all loved our alcoholic beverages, especially the Spritz and Giggles. A non-drinking party member appreciated the NA beer offered. The appetizers (pork belly, corn muffins, and quail) were 10/10. All plates were clean at the end of the meal. Presentation was great, but I will say my lemon icebox pie looked melted when I got it. Our server was kind and very thoughtful, but things came slowly and we did not have as many table checks as we needed. The gab between ordering entrees and appetizers was longer than we'd like. That said, nothing dampened our experience. 8/10 experience and would definitely go back.

    We have been here several times and it never disappoints us. The food is always fresh, changing with the seasons. I had the grouper and it was outstanding. My wife had the filet, and was cooked to perfection. The bread pudding was as good as any I have had in New Orleans. Service as always spot on.

    It was outstanding. Our server was helpful, knowledgeable, and answered every question we had. The manager was present and friendly. The staff complimented each other so service was impeccable. The food is the best. We don’t like going into town, but we will be back there soon and often. Even the valet was friendly and did an excellent job.

    We love the food at Blueprint on 3rd. We went for my birthday celebration. Mh husband and I had salads and an appetizer for dinner. Caesar salad and the beet salad, excellent. Fried oysters and smoked grouper dip for our dinners. Also very good. The lemon ice box pie was amazing, tart and so very good. This was our 3rd visit and will not be our last.

    We were seated promptly after being greeted by a friendly hostess. Our server was attentive and respectful of our meal time. Our drinks were FABULOUS and the meal was delicious. I absolutely love the atmosphere of this restaurant. It perfectly blends causal and upscale without the prices of a high end restaurant. Valet parking makes coming downtown a breeze. I recommend your restaurant often. Well done Blueprint on 3rd!!!

    Scallops and Grits were TOO salty. We had paid our bill and were finishing our wine (which we had purchased a bottle), manager or host asked if we would move to the bar because others were waiting for table. That’s rude!

    We were a party of 3 and highly recommend the Cast Iron Cornbread, Chanterelle mushrooms, Fried oysters Rockefeller, House cured wild salmon with horseradish cream pickle salad, fried potato as appetizers. Our favorite was the house cured salmon. The Farmer’s Market salad: tomato, corn, cucumber, field peas, feta, Grenache vinaigrette was a delightful blend of flavors and enough for the three of us. We selected the following entrees: Surf and Swamp mixed grill with alligator, shrimp, catfish, andouille, crawfish- red bean rice; grilled rainbow trout with sweet potato- snap bean hash, warm bacon mustard vinaigrette,and finally spiced blackened redfish. We finished the meal with a serving of a warm chocolate pecan brownie with creamy ice cream. Every morsel of each item was devine . Service was superb! We will be back!
