This was a mediocre experience. We had the chips and queso and I am not sure I would even give that to my dog. Then we order a Cesar salad, with chicken added and I think it was about 1oz of chicken chopped up. I ordered a Roboto 21, which was tasty, but maybe had a measured shot in it. The spot was cool, but they are definitely trying to pinch pennies in spite of their nose.
Great food with a backyard casual feel. Al fresco dining with live music and a bar. Service is good and I can see coming here for drinks and fun in the evenings with friends and family.
We went for a meal before wine tasting. The food, service and ambience were very good. We will come back again.
I told them it my 40th birthday and they didn’t say anything….
So hit or Miss here. Food is never consistent. Service is all over the place. Yesterday the beer was not cold. I hate complaining but everyone I know has the gripes. I hope they can pull it together.
We arrived right when they opened. The ambiance was great! The servers were friendly, but it took 25 minutes for our food to come out. We were the first ones to order. I’m not sure if it was because we were at the bar and the bartenders were too busy making drinks to check if our food was ready or what. There were plenty of employees around that could have helped deliver the food, if it was ready. We ended up having to take our food to go and didn’t eat it until later, so I can’t comment on the quality of the food since it wasn’t fresh.
Nice open air environment and friendly staff
Seemed under staffed which seems to be a common theme these days. Staff was very courteous and did there best.
Wonderful experience, food was great, service was friendly. Great place to hang out with friends and family
We could tell our server was trying really hard but something is wrong with the restaurant operations. They were serving us wine with plastic cups, plastic utensils too. We had to ask for real wine glasses and took a long time to get them. Had to ask for real utensils. We ordered steak frites and the meat was not pre- cut so we had to ask for steak knives. It tasted good however. We ordered flat bread and that was not cut up also and was told that’s how they serve them. They didn’t have a pizza cutter to give us and we had to use our steak knives. It was also soaked in pesto so we barely ate it. The hummus was fine. Hard to mess that up. The place turned into a DJ club at 9pm.
Server was great, but the food and drinks were very slow. Took an hour to get our food and I think the drinks took 30 mins? Overall kinda disappointing.
Terrible service and mediocre food
We shared three appetizers for dinner (we aren't big eaters). They were all quite good. Very interesting setting and decor with both indoor and outdoor seating. Outdoor area has some games. Limited menu and beer selection, but something for most peoples' tastes.
The food is excellent and the restaurant has a really cool vibe . This is the third time I’ve eaten there and it just feels like the organization of the kitchen and the way the restaurant is run needs some tweaking. The servers are working hard but it takes a while for the food to come out, and sometimes things are missing. Things just seem a little disjointed. I hope they make improvements in this area because the restaurant really could be a shining star in old town Temecula.
Server Adrian was super nice and did a great job!
This was our first time to Blackbird Tavern. Great first impression, the staff is super friendly and the ambiance has a really cool vibe. We sat outdoors and unfortunately it was a very windy evening and we were there before DJ or live music (starts at 9).
The appetizers we chose were excellent (Brussels sprouts and pot stickers) with the small exception that the fried egg on top of Brussels was way too salty). The cocktails were a miss, tried two (prickly pear marguerita & a mai tai version) and didn’t like. The mains we tried were the chicken with curry rice, steak frites and a Thai salad. The chicken dish was good, portions were small but everyone liked the flavors. The steak was undercooked and was returned. It came back correctly cooked but tasted rancid. 3 people tried a bite and thought it tasted very strange. Could not eat it. Fries that accompanied were great though. The Thai salad was huge but too much salad dressing and was only cabbage peanuts. and dressing. So would not recommend either. Our server Bryan was great and really tried to make things right. Only other complaint is the men’s room was disgusting according to our 15 year old. Didn’t use the ladies so don’t know how that was. So probably won’t return although we did enjoy 1/2 of our meal.
There was a big black hair in out Brussel Sprouts, Still charged us for it. Ordered a drink that was so good, then asked for another and it wasn't the same drink. This happened twice. Service was very slow and truly not accomidating.
Not good in any category- go elsewhere
No and Poor reception, mixed up orders. Extremely slow service, unremarkable food
Came in for brunch, thank goodness we had a reservation? Or not? We were told we could not sit at the bar to wait for our table (we were early), but we found chairs available. I heard the hostess tell a walk-in no tables were available, they were booked until 2pm, but even after we were seated (11:15) most of the tables were empty until we left. Both my husbands and my meals were burnt (Fried Chicken/waffles, he had the Chicken sandwich. Our friends ordered the Chicken Asian salad - presentation was blah (basically all tossed in a bowl then onto a plate) - and the tiniest pieces of chicken they had to search for. We had to get our servers attention several times to refill drinks and water. So sorry this is another Covid victim. We won’t be back.
Celebrated a birthday and Father’s Day. The staff was very accommodating! As usual, the food snd the service was great!
Great service and a fun relaxed meal
Great atmosphere. Food and service were both good.
Thank you for a good meal, the server was excellent as was the food. Relaxed atmosphere, fun place, we will be back.
We went the previous week and had great service. Yesterday, their wasn’t a server assigned to us. They came 20 min after we were seated. Food took 40 min to arrive and the waiter came to our table twice to say our food would arrive any min.
It was a beautiful patio with good food! The service was only ok, but I would definitely go back.
Timing of getting meals was way off! Four in our party and we all got our meals at least 10 mins apart. Staff seemed more interested in turn restaurant into a night club ...which was cool bu maybe don’t seat a dinner table in the bar area. As we tried to enjoy dinner drinks and dessert tables and chairs where being during all around us...a bit odd.
We didn’t get waited on until 25 min after being seated. We had to go to the bar twice to request someone.
I’m not sure if there’s a new chef there or not but the quality of the food drastically declined in the past few months. Very bland and lacking flavor.
Great group spot! Excellent food, wonderful brunch & mimosas
Great burgers and drinks in a casual setting. We had a dinner reservation for 6:30 and the staff was already stacking chairs and cleaning while we were eating which makes it uncomfortable and a much to be desired ambiance. The restaurant is quite open and airy and could stand to have some upper, permanent heaters when the evening air is cool.
Service was very slow. We sat for 15 minutes waiting for someone to take our order. Food was overall good but nothing special. Some items were better than others. The chicken and waffles were good. We ordered the Ahi Nachos, expecting Nachos. It was 4 chips with one small piece of Ahi on it. Really it was four chips placed on a plate.....That's not Nachos and very expensive for 4 chips. The bloody Mary was very good as were the mimosas. The place is very cute with a very good homey feeling to it. If service was better and the appetizer portions matched the price, this place could be a home run.
We had been here previously and really liked the ambiance. But this time they had a DJ. The music was so loud, we tried several tables to find a quieter area with no success. The hostess agreed with us, apparently they asked the DJ to turn it down and he refused!?! So we left.
Service was outstanding. Very attentive to our party of 6. Would like a few more food choices for those of us who watch what we eat. We asked for a table away from the DJ speakers so we could talk but the volume was VERY loud as early as 5:00. Would understand cranking the music up a little later but not during dinner hour. Would recommend but with caution.
Great brunch! Fun atmosphere, bottomless mimosas with different juice choices!!! Brie was a fantastic server and was very good at helping with decisions for one of our parties severe allergies.
This is a fun, casual place to hang out with friends and grab some drinks and grub. Their menu is not big, but the food is pretty tasty. No dessert...leave that to the yummy drinks! The outdoor seating area is super fun with fire pits and an picnic tables. We will go again, there was. No band the night we went but, when they are allowed back in, I’m sure I will be a blast!
We had a great experience at Blackbird! Everyone loved it (including our puppy!).
This would be a great place for drinks! Sadly the food was very bad, in every way 😳
It was all good.
Great spot loved hanging out with the whole crowd
