Going to blackbird was the best experience. I was visiting from Sydney and wanted somewhere fancy to eat with my friends from Manila. I chose blackbird and it was so much more beautiful in person. The pricing isn’t too bad either, considering the quality of...food, ambiance and service. I will come back here everytime I’m in Manila. Highly highly recommended! Wear something nice too.. because everyone else was dressed fancy and why not? Ps the beef carpaccio and pana cotta were AMAZING!!!!!!! best things I’ve ever tasted in my life.More

Right in the heart of Makati sits Blackbird, a full-blown art deco resto that offer amazing food and a great ambient scenery, which is pretty surprising since it's propped in the middle of a corporate area. The dishes were fabulous! The best was their steak...which was cooked to medium rare perfection. The scallops were super fresh. Pasta was amazing! The sundae at the end of the meal was just a tad too sweet for my own liking but good nonetheless. Overall, the dishes had an expensive flavor and presentation so it left me really impressed. Loved that the servers undoubtedly knew each dish by heart and provided excellent service and attentiveness. Should you ever find yourself wanting a fancy dining escape and be around fancy folks, Blackbird is the place to be.More

We tried since it was recommended by a family member Lunch- made a reservation and came just 3 mins late and was about 2pmish so we assumed the table is ready. Nope we have to wait for 15 mins before we can be at our...table. - ordering was a bit of a mishap since the waiter did not get one of our order right. It could be bacuse the indoor area was so noisy you can barely hear each other. some of the guests were talking too loud. I have to be honest here I feel like paying to much to be in an outdoor market place bartering. One would expect to pay higher to enjoy the food, ambiance and the company but nope, Any Starbucks give you better experience with their cool music than this place. Lets go to the food- our starter with the octopus was devine, The main dish- steak was ok, pasta was ordinary, panacota ordinary. -Overall dining experience, We wish we stayed home and cook lunch instead, with the money we paid, we could have hired a good cook and enjoyed a very nice meal in a very quiet place. - not recommending but if you want to be seen and show your newest Swiss watch and French bag then this is a place. Servers/ staffs are trained and faster than many of the restaurants in the area.More

Plus: clean, well maintained Pavillon in the park, solid menu, decent food. Minus: Long waiting time, very small servings, waiter brought the wrong food (Tuna Steak instead of a peppered Steak), extra charges for bread (USD 3,50 !!!) when ordering a salad, very noisy indoors,...and a truly overpriced dining experience (over USD 50,- for 4 tiny pieces of Strip Steak) and a hefty service charge for poor service. Whilst Blackbird is apparently a meeting place for the rich and famous, we were quite underwhelmed by the dining experience. Not coming back.More

For this visit we were seated at the upper level of the old control tower. Service upstairs was a little less efficient than the one we have previously experienced at the ground level. But overall it was very good. The dishes were very well prepared,...my wife describes the beef Carpaccio as the best in town and their Thai Seafood Curry was extremely flavorful. Overall a very good experience. A little pricey especially with the wines but definitely worth the visit. We shall definitely return.More

Had dinner here with my family last Thursday and the food was excellent, as well as the service. Also, it is a minute away as the blackbird flies from the Pen, where we were staying.

A great place to catch up with friends and dine! Blackbird offers a great experience with its superb service and food quality. A jam-packed place during lunch time so make sure to reserve as early as possible. The only problem I had was the place...tends to be very noisy. The service may have been great but still needs a little bit of improvement in terms of handling seated diners. Overall it was a nice experience.

Food was great as usual and the staff were all accommodating. But when i booked our table reservation a week before, i noted that this was our anniversary dinner with my family and they noted it. But up until we are done eating and paying...our bill, They didn't even greet us or had something for our anniversary.More

Much needed respite after pandemic. It was a toss between several and since Makati is the most convenient, it was decided to do Blackbird. We liked the intimate setting. We needed that kind of space after being locked up for quite a while. We still...feel safe but at the same time we knew that better things are in the offing. The prawn scotch eggs was a great way to start. Most of the guys went for the Wagyu Striploin which was buttery. We also tried the beef rendang which was comfort in every bite. Would also recommend the grilled peppered tuna steak. Since it’s my birthday Albert insist we have “pancit”. We had to share an order of Angelhair with cod. What most of us were truly looking forward was their signature Burnt Butter and Vanila seed Sundae. It was indeed good for sharing. Also had their sticky date pudding which was so yum and an authentic pana cota. Their cocktails were also divine. We had their Gin and mojito concoction and it was fancy. Great times though it was not cheap. Be ready to shed about 2.5k each person for a hearty meal.More
