Expensive, mediocre and poor service. We just had a very unpleasant experience at Mockingbird. We had previously enjoyed the restaurant on several occasions. I think they have fallen down a great deal since their expansion into a ballroom facility expanding their business to wedding receptions. It s a pity as this was a very nice restaurant. We will not return as we have other restaurants that are friendlier, more varied in their menu offerings and provide far greater value. I fear that Mockingbird has raised their prices and lowered their value in order to cover their recent expansion. There are other, better choices in the area.
everytime we go it s always amazing... not a long wait and even if there is the Martini s are soo good i never seem to care..
my husband and I go alot and are not unhappy
Frank and his crew are one great crew!!
thanks for always hooking us up!!
Went with 6 friends Saturday night. Had reservations for 7pm. By 7:30 they were out of most of the specials. Finally got served dinner around 9pm....haddock was so over cooked tasted like cardboard....sent it back, had no other appetizing options to choose from menu, went without. VERY VERY DISAPPOINTING.
I was there for the first time yesterday. I was very satisfied. I recommend the baked stuffed haddock..the decor was very romantic. sercvice was friendly(genuinely friendly...), i will go back again and again
I was there last Saturday. It was my first time and after the reviews and friends telling me what a great place it was I couldn't wait to try it out. I was so very disappointed. I have to say the service was great, the design and decor of the restaurant is very nice. The food is mediocre at it's best and THEY HAVE COCKROACHES! Two were climbing the walls when we were eating!!! I couldn't believe it. I had to leave. I'm sorry I know that most restuarants have cockroaches but not crawling up the wall next to me in the dining room! I'll never be back it's a shame.
1st time customer @ the Mockingbird. I thought the food was absolutely delicious!!!! The selection on drinks was huge! The bartenders were nice. The second martini I ordered (Pina Colada martini)should've been colder- but still tasted awesome! I would definitely recommend this place based on my visit there. I was very pleased with everything!
We live near by and eat out a lot so when the Mockingbird first opened we were looking forward to having another choice so close to home. We have been there 5 times (my wife a few more with the girls) and 4 out of 5 times the experience was less than stellar. On our first trip it was quite evident they don’t like families. For the record my kids were 12 & 15 at the time. Not exactly screaming babies. They definitely don’t make you feel welcome and from reading some of the other posts I see we are not alone here. I also noticed most of the people raving about this restaurant (in the posts) are couples. If those are the only patrons the Mockingbird want to treat well, then good luck with that business model long term.
The food has been hit it or miss. Twice I have had a good meal but 3 times the orders were either not prepared correctly or were just not that good. As stated above the one thing you can definitely count on is the mediocre service. The bar is very CLINKY. They have their pet costumers and when you’re not one of them you’ll know it. The wife and I stopped in for an late evening cocktail a few months back, and they wouldn’t let us sit at one of the tall bar tables even though the bar was full. They said it was for patrons who were dining. It was about 9:45 and if you live here in EB you know most of the town is dark by now.
All I can say is it’s a shame because we really could use a few more decent restaurants in the area.
Lastly, I mentioned the wife going there with the girls. Well that doesn’t happen anymore because of the service. Two of the ladies are even in the restaurant business and they can’t believe how they treat people.
I hate giving a bad review (especially to a local EB business) but felt if you have not been there yet, you should be forewarned.
Oh Yeah, One Really Good Thing! The new building looks awesome! Quite an improvement from the old Chinese restaurant that was there.
