Still Fine Dining, but lacks Ambiance

We thoroughly enjoyed the fine dining at the Black Bird Restaurant in their old location. In fact, in Roseburg, there were no other "fine dining" restaurants. It was the only restaurant that offered intimate ambiance; a wonderful menu of excellently prepared food, beautifully presented, and elegant... read more

Chef Tina continues to amaze, especially with her amazing cheesecakes and locally sourced steaks. I miss Chef Steve's cooking AND the old location, but the Blackbird still has the best food in town if you know the difference between frozen (several other places) and fresh ingredients. With summer coming, the salads and vegetable dishes get even better as the kitchen... More

Yes the Blackbird Bistro is a little out of the way from it's old location,but it is worth looking for. The chef has a great way of preparing some very unique dishes. The prices are what you would expect for a fine dining meal. The service was superb. Everyone was very professional, friendly, and took the time to come and... More

I was excited to try the new location of the BlackBird Bistro which recently began it's "Burgers and Bands" event on Wednesday evenings. The band of evening was Code Blue. They must have quite a following as all of the tables were reserved. However, the bar area did have available seating. The band was terrific. Code Blue offered songs from... More

This has got to be on of the best Restaurants we have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. Not only that but the prices were right, the service great and the Maitre D very accommodating. We had some of the best Pork Skewers, Seafood soup and Entrees, including Pork Chops, Grilled Snapper and Flat Iron Steak you could ever imagine.... More

the food is good, if a bit limited in selection. however, there isnt a whole lot served portion-wise considering the high prices. the new location lacks atmosphere, and instead of an intimate setting you might expect (per menu and prices) it has a cavernous feel of a large, mostly empty room. tables are also huge and the three of us...

We recently heard this restaurant had re-opened in a new location, so went to give it a try. Apparently, they still have much of the same staff and chef, so I was expecting a good meal, and I was not disappointed. My husband had the scallops, and they were perfectly done. I had the duck confit and it was delicious,... More

Six of us (all adults) visited Blackbird last night at a 6 O'clock reservation. What a delightful redecoration of the dining room from the old operators.. Lighting is just right. Mr. Allen greeted us as we entered, dressed to please his customers. We ordered different menu items, drinks & wine before the salads & soups came. The waiting time was... More
