    Foie gras was delish!! Tried the duck and venison, too!! Be open minded when trying the venison. Salad of endives comes in a pancetta basket! Such a cool presentation

    Don't understand the hype... Awards on every wall, phenomenal reviews across the board, GREAT service, but just OK food. Will try again soon, but we both missed something here.m.

    This restaurant can be expensive but at the same time their $25 three-course lunch is the best four-star deal in town. Try the pork belly or whitefish sandwich. Menu changes for dinner. Read more

    The Grilled striploin & smoke brined chicken breast are excellent! Bourbon gooey butter cake is so delicious!

    The food was excellent! But for the money the service was so-so. Still really enjoyed the duck breast. Incredible!

    Blackbird's newest dish is Cider-glazed salmon with miso, sunchoke, rapini & chamomile vinaigrette. It was inspired by all the planters everyone puts out on their front porch every Fall. Read more

    The prix fixe lunch is very worth it! The beef tartare was very flavorful, and the pear sorbet was spot on.

    Great attentive service. Excellent food. Pricey and kind of dressy. Definitely make a reservation ahead of time.

    I initially thought it was fufu food. I was pleasantly surprised at the great taste although the portions were small.

  • Time Out Chicago

    The chicken—which is not really just chicken, but chicken stuffed with sausage, a sort of freakishly delicious frankenmeat—comes on a plate that’s been dusted with dehydrated kaffir lime. Read more

    Tasting menu was well worth the $. Atmosphere is a little scene-y.

    Food was really great but unfortunately it was very smoky. We left the place smoking like we were barbecuing! Something must have happened with the ventilation or something

    Blackbird's specialties are its desserts. Roasted peanut ice cream, goats cheese cheesecake, and roast rhubarb are all worthy of high praise.

    The two-inch-thick patty made with short rib from deli/butcher Publican Quality Meats is the star: The meat is velvety, juicy, and, true to its origins, screams quality. Read more

    I hate to say it, but I really wasn't impressed. Stick to Avec, the sister spot. Nothing I ate at Blackbird was memorable, exciting, or would prompt me to come back. Service was excellent.
