Blue Bird Bistro
Disappointing experience during restaurant week. I had never been and was excited to try it out. Server was pleasant enough, just very distracted talking to other staff. He kept forgetting flatware, napkins, and water. The food and presentation was the biggest disappointment, though. I don’t know if it was because of the pandemic, it being restaurant week, or if they always serve on paper plates.....it definitely cheapened the experience. My entree, the strip steak roulade, was room temp and underwhelming. It made me feel like they prepped all this way in advance to crank through as many customers as possible. For me, $35 for a meal and another $12 of a drink is a big deal. If I was a restauranteur during a pandemic, I would want to put my best foot forward to gain some loyal customers. This experience fell short.
The service was so slow and this the 3rd and last time we will go. Each time the service is too slow and when items are out, the server needs to let the customer know that. We were told an appetizer was on its way and then 15 minutes later, we were told by a different server they were all out. Just kind of a mish mash of confusion there.
Restaurant week food was garbage. And served on paper plates
Came here for restaurant week. Definitely not a white tablecloth, as the photos represent. Served a 3 course meal on paper plates. Sweet potato soup tasted like warmed up sweet potato baby food - I wish I were kidding. The smoked tofu hash was good but slightly bland. The chocolate mousse tested like shaved ice with a sprinkling of unsweetened cocoa powder and cayenne, topped with a few chocolate chips. The drinks were good.
I'm a fairly optimistic person and give many benefits of the doubt, but this was an embarrassment. To charge $35 per person for a such lousy meal is not cool at all.
And the rationale for serving dinner on paper plates to be "covid safe" is contradicted by using non-disposable silverware. None of it made any logical sense.
This place may be decent for a lunchtime run, but to showcase themself for restaurant week in this manner is not good at all. A waste of money. I will not be returning.
Attended during restaurant week with a friend.
The starter of sweet potato soup with a blackberry sauce was good but tasted a bit too bland. The second course of salmon, quinoa and spinach was very good. The chocolate mousse was not good; it had a bland taste initially then a spice flavoring of some sort that stayed in the back of your throat.
The service was fantastic, the wine was great.
I will say that toward the end of our meal, my friend and I felt a bit too close to the other tables that were being seated.
It is restaurant week so I don't think they were staffed for this. I got the salmon and it was only cooked on the ends the middle was raw or as my husband said sushi. They did remove it from my bill that was appreciated. They served the food on recycled paper plate not a good idea since that paper just absorbs all the dressings , juices and any other liquid placed on the meal. Also the waitress set a table of 5 next to us not social distance at all. I will say the rest of the restaurant was practicing social distancing.
I was looking forward to this meal as I had eaten brunch at BBB previously and it was fantastic. We got there and service was extremely slow. They seemed more interested in accommodating the news crew then the patrons. I asked for warm water. I never got it. We ordered soup and some deviled eggs for an appetizer. We never received the eggs and the soup, which was in a paper bowl, was good but lukewarm. I sent mine back twice as it was cold the 2nd time around. By the time the 3rd was addressed I had them box it because I was finished with my entree. The entree and dessert were fine. They were served on paper plates. I had to ask 3 different people for water. Terrible service for a $80+ meal. Would go for brunch but not for a dinner service. Extremely disappointed.
Love this restaurant. Good food and wonderful gluten free and vegan options.
The food very average. I was served cold sweet potatoes mashed. They said this is how they were supposed to be served. Dessert white cake w raspberry sauce - very average. My husband got deviled eggs & very bland. Also his salad was drenched in dressing. Also food served on paper plates. This used to be my favorite restaurant now I don’t think we will return.
We enjoyed our girls brunch! Food was great! Many places do bottomless mimosas, it would’ve been nice to have an option like that.
Everything was perfect. The breakfast was awesome and the service was even better.
Fun, friendly, farm fresh scratch kitchen with great food and large portions. Perfect brunch with the girls :)
Such a cute place! Food was terrific. Loved that it was ran by the owner.
Good food... Good service... Great red wine. Will definitely return.
We had the Classic Benedict and a French toast hangover breakfast. Both were delicious! Also had the tequila Bloody Mary and whiskey Bloody Mary. Would definitely order both again. Next time I’m in KC, we will come back!
best biscuits and gravy I have had in a long time. Pricy (had the sausage upgrade) but real good
Thanks so much for a great food experience! Very fresh & tasty!
Super cute atmosphere too!
Excellent excellent!! Nice quiet outdoor seating with perfect weather to celebrate our anniversary with a fabulous brunch. Service was perfect and the bloody mary's and food were perfect
My sisters birthday! Food is always delicious and I felt like we were all safe. Thank you for always giving us the best experience!
EXCELLENT PLACE! The pancakes were incredible! Fantastic coffee and egg dishes too!
My favorite place for brunch in KC. Lovely and charming place. Organic ingredients and everything is homemade. My son loves their food here. The owner is sweet and makes you feel like you’re visiting family. Love it!
Great quality restaurant. Great fresh food and chance to eat outside. The EO index is high on this one. (Eat Out)
My wife and I love the Blue Bird! The food is amazing, the service is fantastic, and the ambience is perfect!
Very pleasant birthday dinner.
Great place to eat for a special occasion. Would recommend it to anyone.
The food is amazing and this restaurant supports local farmers. Highly recommended!
This place never disappoints. We love going for brunch.
Our Grandkids were in town visiting and they requested we eat at the Blue Bird, as it's their favorite place to eat when they come to visit from the east coast.
This has been one of our favorite restaurants since we discovered it. we've enjoyed everything on the menu but we always seem to come back for the bison burger. The cocktails are deliciously fun too.
Love Bluebird Bistro! If your looking for a delicious brunch, or a romantic dinner, look no further. Everything on the menu is delicious, though I usually get the French toast. They have indoor or outdoor seating on a nice day. Check it out!
Wonderful and amazing organic food, with superior and friendly service. A Kansas City hidden jewel!
Wonderful, organic food!! Always a great choice!!
New experience and enjoyed the vegan choices! Really enjoyed the atmosphere! It was more romantic than a Restaurant chain and loved the idea of healthy organic foods and locally grown foods!
One of the best dinner experiences that I have had in 10 years. The Wednesday night “communal” meal hosted by Jane who owns the restaurant was absolutely one of the best meals and where strangers become friends over a meal. It was perfect! I will be back monthly to experience this wonderfully unique dining experience that you can’t find anywhere else in KC.
My family and I were first time guests with reservations, and still had to wait fifteen minutes to be seated. Host and waiter were nonchalant about service and inconvenience. Our order was messed up, waiter did compensate on bill. I will not return.
Delicious, local food prepared to perfection! Server was very knowledgeable of wine pairings that really made for a terrific experience. We'll be back!
Very disorganized staff. Food was ok.
I’ve had good experiences in the past, but food wasn’t at its best...
Service was slow, but good dinner overall. The food was good and menu was impressive! Great ambience, very charming.
Very disappointing! Service was terrible and food was mediocre. No apologies for bad service... just kept hearing it was a crazy night. Never going back. Should have turned around when the people leaving were wishing us good luck!
