Came to Mockingbird around 5pm on a Saturday night, good thing because it filled up quick. The ambiance is very unique and it's very comfy and homey. We sat at the bar and were greeted promptly. I had their house draft and it was delicious. My wife and I shared the mac and cheese, a fennel sausage pizza, and the oven roasted Ceasar salad. Everything was so good. We had such a great time and will be back.

Patrick, the chef is phenomenal and beyond creative. The bartender, Justin always puts a smile on our face, makes great drinks & is very attentive. THANK YOU MOCKINGBIRD!!!!!

Unique brunch dining experience. The Two Pigs in a Bird's Nest Crostata was well prepared and served warm. The deviled eggs were tasty and a must try. Interesting presentation of the smoked whitefish, served in a jar along with slices of crusty bread.

We loved our New Years Eve experience at Mockingbird! The atmosphere was festive, the food delicious and the staff a delight! We were at a table able to watch the chefs...they are young and passionate about what they do...was fun to see. Hope to be back next year!

While we frequent this restaurant, we have not been here for an event like NYE. We were pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent, the atmosphere was wonderful. The food was incredible. Every course was unique and delicious. In a multi-course dinner, I expected small portions but they were not at all. The chef, Patrick did an amazing job and the owner, Kathleen was a wonderful host as she always is. I will always recommend this restaurant for casual dining but this was truly a special experience.

Another incredible night at Mockingbird in the books. Holiday drinks were absolutely to die for, per usual and the apps were so great (especially the chicken thighs and white fish pate!). Everyone I brought with loved the experience and the hospitality was incredible. Our server was kind, patient, and very accommodating to all our questions. And Kathleen (the owner) was welcoming and sweet as always! Love bringing our friends and family here all the time. The holiday decor too was stunning! 10/10.

So didnt get any food here but stopped in before heading over to Bleuroot right down the road. Let me tell you guys, this place was amazing! Awesome bar tender Justin and very nice manager. All worked together cohesively as a team making sure everyone’s night went perfect. Got a few drinks but wish we would have gotten some food. Huge brick oven for pizzas and more with a perfectly aesthetic bar and very cozy. I told my fiance this would be the perfect place to be held up in a blizzard ? we will be back!P.S also the fresh microgreens and ingredients like everywhere you look is um… pretty nice if I might add!

I felt like I stepped into a winter dream! The heated patio was darling with fuzzy white blankets on every chair back and Christmas garland all lit up. We enjoyed every moment and our food and drinks were delicious.

The current kitchen and bar staff is doing an outstanding job! We have been coming here since they opened and there were a couple times a few months ago where the food was not as good as we had remembered it being when they first opened. Tonight we decided to give them another shot and were blown away by how good it was. The new menu items (oysters Rockefeller, charred romaine salad, and Mac n cheese to name a few) were all delicious and well-composed dishes. Keep it up!

The food was really good, creative dishes, and done well. However, we sat at a small table near the door and waited for 15 minutes to be served drinks, in fact we had to ask for a server. Then we continued waiting for our food, and our next round of drinks. We had to remind the server, which was annoying. I would be willing to give it another chance because the food was so good.

Such a good experience here! Waitress was lovely and friendly, I wish I remembered her name - she was wearing a white dress serving the patio area. Drinks were well balanced with creative ingredients. They had mastiha which was such a treat, I never see it where I live. I am a bartender and I give this place 5/5.
