You need to get there early if you are eating lunch downstairs. The service is a bit iffy but the food is generally quite good and well priced for the Kings Rd. I would recommend going for lunch upstairs and to book through top table who offer a very good price for two courses. It is quite quiet but the service and food are both much better. Parking is not very easy but I still love going there. They also have a lovely shop attached. Incredibly expensive but they have great little things for pressies such as Italian Apricot jam and for a while Mariage des Freres teas.
My friend & I originally planned just to catch up in a nice venue which was local to us. I sometimes venture down the Kings Road to browse in my nearest Cath Kidston store, and the Bluebird cafe/restaurant/bar is just a short stroll before this. My friend had been here before and recommended the Bluebird, and I do enjoy trying new places which are local.
You first walk through the forecourt which has a number of tables, which is their cafe section - here you can have breakfast & lunch during the day and then dinner & drinks in the evening. I noticed that everyone looked particularly smart, both the men & women.
As we met after work and it was getting a little chilly, we decided to head up to the first floor. Immediately you are taken by the chic interior design with lots of reds, we sat around the bar, and as I don't drink they made me an amazing non-alcoholic cocktail. Neither of us had eaten, but we hadn't booked a table, we were however lucky enough to get a table as it was early on in the week. Whilst my friend was eating oysters and seabass, I was particularly unsophisticated and ordered a hamburger which came with chips - simple but tasty :-)
I have to say the two people that served us were soo nice, attentive when needed but also left us to it. Dress code: everyone looked smart, which is what you'd expect for somewhere on the fashionable Kings Road. I did however dress smart/casual, teaming my high-waisted skinny jeans with a blouse and pretty bow heels.
If you want an alternative place to meet with friends but which is more sophisticated than the local pub, then I'd suggest this. Also, it would make a lovely venue for first dates or couples. I'd definitely go here again.
I hadn't been to the Bluebird in years, but finishing a meeting early on a sunny day reminded me of its existence.
The location is perfect for enjoying a relaxed lunch outdoors. But that seems to be the only thing going for it these days.
The service was the worst I have ever experienced in an upmarket restaurant. We had a total three waiters attending to us, but to very little avail.
We completely threw them by asking one of them to wipe our table (covered in crumbs) which resulted in our water order to be taken back to the bar and not be brought back for ages.
An embarrassment as I was entertaining a business guest from Germany!
I suppose it's not the waiters' fault that the Bluebird Club Sandwich looks like a burger - but why? Tasty enough, though.
PS a far cry from a private party I enjoyed here a few years ago
We had horrible service here over a Christmas party lunch. The food was generally pretty good but for the prices paid (£45 for three courses) the service was inattentive and we were rudely made to leave our table "to reset for dinner" at the end of the afternoon. There are better places to spend your hard earned cash.
Cool place for romantic diner with nice ok food. Pricey for the food but it’s all about the atmosphere.
Not my typical kind of place, but one of my friends recommended it to me and we weren’t disappointed. The building has great history which always triggers interesting discussions. Other than that, well, it’s on the Kings road and it can’t avoid being posh in places.
I also went there for office parties, which is well suited for this kind of events.
Bluebird Restaurant is quite a hike from any nearby tube stations so bus is the best option for getting to this restaurant (that is, unless you can afford a chauffer like many of the locals …)
We took advantage of a lunch deal on toptable (some set course meal) and it turned out to be very good value for me for the quality of the food that we got and even the portions. I have a big appetite (as all my friend know!) and even I was full after the first two courses (a beautiful velvety and rich mushroom soup and beautifully cooked steak with side of fries.)
The restaurant itself is very attractive. The room is gorgeous with high ceilings (so feels particularly light and airy) and funky furniture.
Sadly we weren’t lucky enough to see any celebs during our dining experience but apparently it is a frequent celeb hangout and I don’t blame them. Service was pretty good although strangely they were quite slow with pouring our wine. Wine was hidden away behind our booth in an ice bucket so we never knew how much was left.
Wow. What a venue. The stuff of movies and TV - not somewhere I would usually expect to go! We got a meal deal voucher through a website and headed off not knowing what to expect. The place is stunning, pretentious, glamorous and seedy all at once - everything you expect from King’s Road!!
The food was actually very good, beautifully presented by a very relaxed waiter who didn’t make us feel uncomfortable for coming in on a cheapo voucher (some places do). He recommended wine and was great without being overbearing. It’s a great place to people watch (and be watched I guess, if you like that kind of thing) and is probably somewhere I would recommend for a special occasion.
The food was very good. It’s a big space that only works well when nice and full. The refurb a couple of years ago have helped to make this nicer more intimate place.
They have introdoced a set menu for £18.50 that certainly seems to be getting people in the door.
I had a pear and blue cheese salad which was very nice followed by a duck leg with puy lentils, with a very nice crumble to finish.
It seems to be back on form as a restaurant and I would recommend it.
I came here with a friend after a spot of shopping on the Kings Road. Its got a great location with outside seating, perfect for watching the world go by. We got a really good 2 course deal through top table so it wasn’t too expensive either. The food was delicious and after we had a look around the shop they have there which sells a variety of really cool fashion labels.
Bluebird is certainly over rated. The food is very poor, and so is the service. It is also over priced. Saying this, I went a couple of years ago and things may have changed since then. However, my family who have also been there have the same views.
A really lovely little debvelopment, originally set up by Terence Conran, this is a converted 1930s garage that features a restaurant, cafe, foodmarket & private members club. The restaurant delivers the upmarket Modern British food so beloved of Conran, and is of the highest quality (and price). Dishes include Cornish Crab, Lobster, Lamb & Steak. You can eat quite reasonably here, as long as you stick to the cheaper end of the wine list!
The dining space is a wonderful 1st floor contemporary space, with views into the kitchen on one side and out onto the Kings Road on the other. For special occaisions hire out the private room, which always reminds me of a James Bond villain control room in the way it overlooks the main restaurant. The Private members club also has rooms for hire. The cafe spills out onto the forecourt in front of the garage and has a very European/pavement cafe feel. The foodmarket serves up some great ingredients too.
