Such a great shame to see a restaurant that was once a favourite go into such a steep decline.
Whilst the setting remains one to admire I regret to report that the quality of food is at best average and the service appallingly amateur. This would not ne what Mr Conran had in mind for any of his establishments!
The monkfish curry was a pitiful attempt at at stylish Indian meets SW3 and for the sake of good taste should be taken off the menu as soon as possible. Avoid!
Whilst there were a good many staff on duty on a Wednesday evening and all had the appearance of being busy it was a challenge to see exactly what is was that gave them this appearance.
If you are a full paid up member of that shallow breed who so admire style over substance then you will no doubt find this venue acceptable. If this were in NYC the place would be closed down in a matter of weeks at most.
I hope that someone responsible reads this and responds in a positive manner to the criticism. I would be very happy if the dining experience at The Bluebird could be restored to the standard of days gone by.
