The only riverside location in Eagle St Pier with 3 glass walls, lovely decor, delicious food and wonderful staff. We had a great time.

21 Nov 2021

The venue speaks for itself for the view but the service from our initial consultant to our day was impeccable. There was no other venue that could compare

8 Oct 2021

The service, food and views were simply amazing at Blackbird! The venue exceeded all our expectations, and the planning and communication was so easy. All our guests commented on how spectacular the view was, and how amazing the food and service was. Was just the best night, in the best Brisbane location!

27 Feb 2021

Amazing view! Delicious food and great service! They were well priced and very helpful before and during the wedding. We had our ceremony and reception there.

From first contact the excellence of this venue is outstanding. We had our wedding reception after having our ceremony at the Gardens Club within the Brisbane Botanic Gardens. We had a change of event manager half way through the planning and no care or attention to detail was missed. The food was amazing I had guests raving about the food for weeks after. We went with the feasting menu as we wanted a relaxed feeling of a family dinner, and it was a great option for all our guests to sample a wider variety of the food. The venue also set up all our decoration items without the need for hiring a stylist. I was also able to make my own cake. 100% recommend this venue for your wedding. Stunning venue and views of the river.

10 May 2019

Blackbird was always my first choice for a venue! the location and functions room alone had us. The events coordinator was incredibly helpful, ensuring she went through every possible detail to make the night run so smoothly. We had a cocktail style reception for 150 ppl. The cocktail menu was extensive and delicious! the packaged included more than enough food for our guests! On the night there was no issues and the functions coordinator was there all night to ensure it went off without a hitch. Our guests have been raving about the venue! Amazing venue with amazing views. Wouldn't go anywhere else!

The service was really good, and the food always tastes amazing with them. We were really happy with the service, and their attention to the table - glasses were always filled up very promptly.

17 Aug 2018

I fell in love with Blackbird for our wedding reception very early on. The Heritage Room screams class and glamour. I couldn't have been happier with the final result. The team there are great, they help you throughout the process, allow you to deliver early and pickup items the next day, they communicate with all your suppliers. Our whole night went so smoothly and we didn't have any issues at all! Not one. Couldn't recommend them enough. The Heritage Room is a beautiful canvas to style up with an amazing view and interior.

16 Aug 2018

Blackbird private dining and events was the perfect venue for our wedding! The food and service were incredible. I would highly recommend Blackbird private dining for anyone looking for a wedding venue in Brisbane CBD.

28 Apr 2018

A stunningly beautiful venue with wonderful staff. We planned our wedding in Brisbane whilst living overseas and the staff at Blackbird, in particular our fabulous wedding planners Laila Ghanem and Adriana Monteverde, were exceptionally helpful, professional and overall a pleasure to deal with. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Incredible food with plenty of wonderful choices, and specific meals for every dietary restriction possible. If you want a venue that will be gorgeous and staff that will make your lives easy, choose Blackbird!

Lovely casual dinner for family following ceremony.

27 Jan 2018

Blackbird were fantastic. The food was exceptional, I heard great reviews from my guests. I couldn't fault how the venue looked on the day either.

28 Oct 2017

Excellent! Food was brilliant and staff were really friendly.

24 Jan 2017

I work at Blackbird so was unsure about having my wedding there however I moved venues halfway through the planning process as I was so impressed with the amazing food, service and the sensational view. I was not left disappointed on the day, in fact it surpassed my expectations!

4 Nov 2016

We were guided through all the necessary arrangements professionally, but with a personal touch. They answered emails promptly and arranged all the deliveries from providers on the day. The location was beautiful, with a view of the river, and we had an amazing night.
