There were 4 of us and we shared 4 starters. 2 Mains and a salad. All meals were fantastic. The stand outs were the Falafel Fritters and the fried Tofu. The deserts to die for !! Highly recommend you dine here.

My first few times at Mockingbird were still trial runs. Happy to see the food has come up to "very good" standards and pleased that the restaurant was filled on a Friday night (albeit making for slow service, but understandable). Now, if they'd just move...More

This was the first time I had been to the Mockingbird cafe. Seating was quick and I liked the room dividers. My wife and I had the chicken liver mouse and a salad both of which were very good and we both had the heritage...More

I waited for a few months after your relocation to give you an opportunity to find your groove. I so wanted to love you, Mockingbird in Bantam. I'm hopeful that these setbacks are temporary and you get your wings back. The renovations are beautiful: well-planned...More

Had dinner with friends last night. this was our fourth visit in 2 months. Our initial visit was very positive, good electricity, great food, service was a bit slow but we gave that to being newly opened and working out the kinks. However, each subsequent...More
