Respond to Review of Blackbird Pizzeria
Review: My husband and I visited Blackbird with our daughter this week during our visit to Philly. This place isn't for everyone. Located in a shabby little hole in the wall with no air conditioning, the atmosphere leaves one wondering if you should just back out. My daughter noticed a sign on the wall speaking about a violent sex offender and we realized this wasn't the kind of place we would ever visit again. But let's talk about the food. We were hungry and wanted to get to a tour around the corner. So sticking it out, we tried to order. YOU CAN NOT ORDER OFF THE MENU. The pizza is sold by the slice and you can only have what they have available. So the menu you see online and might have your heart set for, isn't always what you get. The pizza was DRY and didn't have a lot of flavor. My hubby ordered the cheesesteak and it was served about 20 minutes after our pizza slices. The Philly was bland and dry, not any effort put into it. The service.. wow.. If you are a 20 year old college student, it might be ok. But otherwise, I would rather not see your butt cheeks hanging out of your jumper while I am having dinner with my family. And please, guys.. wake up and focus on the customers and not each other. We ended up being late for our tour and disappointed with our dinner. We should have just left when we walked in and went to one of the places around the corner with other customers. I wanted to give this place a 1 cow, but happy cow doesn't allow this. So..2 unhappy cows.
