The food choices were uninspired and several courses were not properly cooked. The waiter agreed that the pork belly was undercooked. The shrimp (only two) overcooked. Rice in the rice pudding dessert was crunchy. Smoked fish was very good! Although my dining experience was not good, I would like to try other dishes I saw being served to other diners. The waiters were enthusiastic and knowledgeable and I had an enjoyable evening, though I had to go somewhere else to eat.

If I had made another choice I’m sure I would’ve been pleased. Food presentation just ok. Enjoyed the vibe… Visiting from Birmingham AL…big foodie town…my husband is a great cook… I have high expectations. Enjoyed our evening at The Blackbird nonetheless.

If you missed it, it is labeled "Vegetarian and Vegan". 4 of our 5 snacks are vegetarian, 2 of our 5 starters are vegetarian, and 5 of our 11 entrees are vegetarian. If that is considered 'meat oriented', my mind is blown. Hope to you see you soon!

Wife’s trout was good but my steak was way over cooked and so salty that I drank the entire bottle of water on the table. The coconut cake was really dry and the servers graciously took it off the bill.

I do wish you had said something in the restaurant so we could fix the mistake, instead of leaving 2 separate reviews. I hope you will try us again and like most people enjoy your evening. Thank you

Our waiter came and went over the menu then asked about drinks. My wife and I asked for a few minutes to look. He gave us maybe 45-60 seconds and was back. We asked for more time. And again less than a min went by and he was back. The food was not spectacular. Our salad tasted like it was pre made in a fridge. My croutons were cold and a little stale. The steak was thin and mediocre. I have had better steaks at Texas Roadhouse. Again the waiter, before we even took a bite was there to ask how it was. I don’t recommend this place.

My only complaint was the coconut cake. I had this cake several times pre-covid and it was outstanding. I would dream of this cake. However, the one I tasted this time was far different. Yellow cake instead of white, two small portions, and dry. Disappointed- Please go back to the original!!! :)

It was also a terrible cut of meat. The corn fritter was more crust than corn…. Maybe we just ordered the wrong things. Blackbird came highly recommended. We were not charged for the filet, but my husband did leave hungry. Even the beet salad was less than impressive.

I am sorry you had to deal with this and I would like to offer you a gift card. Please call the restaurant and ask for Mike the chef/owner or Brenden the GM and we will make this right.

Rainy afternoon didn’t deter the Asheville crowd. Noticed the theater across the street and caught a movie after having a wonderful salad with blue cheese and pears. Service was great and enjoyed vegan chocolate cake for desert. I will be back with friends.

It was very disappointing. Both our salads were mediocre at best and my friend was so disappointed she complained about it and they took hers off the bill which was quite nice of them. My shrimp add on to the arugula salad spelled old and tasted a bit off. That afternoon I had stomach problems.

The ribeye was decadent, trout risotto was perfect, and the Wellington was perhaps the best vegetarian dish I’ve ever tasted. Also enjoyed squash bisque, jalapeño cornbread, and two deserts. The pecan blondie, and the best piece of coconut I’ve ever put in my mouth. This place will make you slap yourself it’s just great!
