The food was excellent and the server was very friendly. It was a bit noisy but that was how the building/ceilings were constructed.

Most of the food was very good but we did not like the cornbread muffins because they were way too spicy. And I was disappointed that the restaurant ran out of to go containers for my ice tea at the end.

Can’t wait to go back! This was our first experience, although I’ve been wanting to try them out for awhile. Everyone was so friendly. The hostess, manager (assuming), and our server Grace was delightful. We ordered something from each course and everything was amazing. They even let us order a side of the red beans and rice to go! Will definitely be back soon!

Sat at a table right next to the bar. The bar was VERY busy. NO social distancing. We could not even hear each other talk. Ordered a bottle of wine (wine list very limited). Only the initial glasses were poured. We had to pour the rest ourselves. Salads came half way through the appetizer course. Food was good...that was about all that was good!

With the pandemic, it had been a solid year since we were out on a date. I can't think of anything more perfect than the evening we experienced at Blueprint on 3rd. Our server was perfectly tentative, the food was 10/10, and the overall ambiance was so comfortable, relaxing, and picturesque on the patio.

The menu stated Halibut and “grilled shrimp”. I did not see shrimp on my plate. The waiter informed the cook and the cook stated they were finely chopped. For the record, there was no shrimp on the plate. With that said, the plate was delicious.

Another fabulous dinner at Blueprint. Birmingham has many wonderful restaurants but Blueprint on 3rd has risen to the top of my list. Great meal, great service and great time. Only negative was the loud table next to us. No fault of the restaurant and will not keep us from coming back.

My expectations were pretty high with this being a more expensive restaurant and I was really let down. All of the courses had a major flaw. The menu was mostly the same flavors. Too much sauce on everything. Not good flavor combinations. Do not waste your time or money.

Wonderful food and experience. We got 5 apps, 3 bottles of wine and 4 entrees and everything was fire. Pork belly, pork chop, pimiento cheese, burger and the fried veggies were favorites. Very yummy

Rainbow Trout was excellent, for the money it should have had more sides. Salmon with grits was good. Wonderful restaurant gave it 4 stars because of the noise level and the tables were small. All in all we were satisfied and will return.
