Had our family Christmas lunch there on a Sunday with 5 of us. Everyone of us enjoyed our meal with no complaints. Staff extremely friendly but professional and attentive without being overbearing. Plenty of veges in the side dishes.

If you first accept that good food in Brisbane does not come cheap then you will love Blackbird. I have been to the bar a couple of times (highly recommend for a relaxed night out by the river) but this was my first time in the restaurant for our annual Christmas dinner with friends. The Tomahawk steak and pork rib share plates were fantastic - so tender - and all the accompaniments were delicious (particularly the clay baked potatoes and sweetcorn fritters). We were fortunate enough to experience the chef’s once a year white truffle risotto and while I think the $90 price tag was a little over the top no one was complaining when it came time to eating. Service was fantastic - shout out to Dallas who made the evening that much more fun. As promised, we will be back for the private dining experience!! Definitely one of the top choices in the Eagle St vicinity.

Our night began with a drink at the bar overlooking the Brisbane River. Great atmosphere. Tip - don't sit under speakers... :)
In the restaurant, we had great comfortable seats with fine dining on offer. Staff were attentive and always filling our drinks, offering water and making sure we were catered to. We were brought complimentary breads to begin which was a lovely surprise.
Food was of exceptional quality and delicious. We shared a dessert as the main meals were filling and everything was high quality.
A great night and well worth the money spent.

Such a lovely restaurant with beautifully presented food. A little on the expensive side but we thought the food was worth it. Such a shame Australian wait staff are not well trained in making the experience just that little bit better but that appears to be the normal. The location is also really pretty with views of the Brisbane River. Lovely bar attached for post or pre dinner drinks. Make sure you book as it gets very busy. The oyster tasting plate and seafood platter are quite exquisite.

We held a fantastic event here for 47 people over drinks and canapés. Food, drinks and service were excellent. Would highly recommend to anyone. Everyone that attended can't stop talking about it.
