Lovely food, I can especially rave over the lamb salad- absolutely delicious thank you very much. Have eaten here before and can also rate the pasta as really very good. My husband had the prawn pasta last night with plenty of prawns. Started the dinner date with cocktails prior, this is a trendy place, plenty of atmosphere! Deb

On a buzzy Friday after work three girlfriends and I settled into a great harbour view table at rhe Blackbird Cafe on King Street Wharf.

Service was swift and friendly. With a cool vibe, great music the night was off to a flying start.

We had some dips to share and a mix of pizza and good wine. The sun set the lights twinkled and a great night at Blackbird Cafe was had by us all.

This was a 'First' for my husband and I in many ways. It was our first time at using 'First Table' and it was our first time dining at Blackbird Café.
Our experience was outstanding. The food was superb, my husband commenting that it was the best garlic bread he had ever tasted ... just dissolved in your mouth. The pizzas were delicious and very filling.
The service was attentive and friendly. They seemed genuinely eager to please.
The location, overlooking Darling Harbour, provided stunning views and ambience.
We could not fault the Blackbird Café ... we will definitely be back.

The staff were absolutely lovely at blackbird, they accommodated our needs all night. We arrived at the restaurant earlier than what we booked it for and they had the table ready for us.
The portion of our meal was sufficient and the drinks were also good.
We will definitely come back!!!

Enjoyed our night. Music was a bit loud as we came early and sat at the bar instead of “Our table” had a couple already there eating. No biggy.
We enjoyed the happy hr drinks. Service was great. Every waiter had a smile on their faces which was so pleasant to see.
Then when our table was free we sat down and had more cocktails while waiting for our gf to arrive. The waitress came and said we had to be moved as this wasn’t our table. Our table was at far end. Looks like they had a sudden big booking and had us move to connect all the tables together for the large group. We were comfortable had a good view and then we got disturbed and had to move. Other than that it was a great night. 4 stars!

Great food and menu, however it certainly inst the place to go if you want to try and relax and chat with friends over a meal and a drink, the music was so loud that you couldn't hear yourself think, we had to asked to be moved as it was so busy and there were people crowding around our little table, really needs to be divides with restaurant and bar. just to noisy and really took away from the overall ambience/atmosphere

Atmosphere and food were great.

Little bit confusing knowing what staff are what. Some just clear tables then others take orders but all wearing the same thing.
Staff were also sometimes too eager to clear our table. We were eating and stopped to talk for a while and 3 different staff came up to us trying to take the plate. Very eager staff is never a bad thing but.

Other than that it was all good.
