Great Farm to Table (and almost literally, garden is outside resto, with menu showing which part of garden veggies come from). We had a really nice anniversary (for myself and my wife) dinner here. All lovely. The lamb should and steak and duck and veggies and ... and were all excellent. Really nice place. Highly recommended.

Great location with Beautiful Garden outside and nicely decorated and lit. Food is of excellent quality, mostly locally sourced and carefully presented. Service is attentive. Ambient noise is a bit excessive making a conversation sometimes difficult.

Quality of food remains high with us eating nothing too adventurous - staying with the lamb shoulder and the chicken. Both superb. Wine list seems to have changed a bit and did not really recognize anything - but that an observation not a criticism

Best meal I’ve ever eaten. The Lamb shoulder was divine and the vegetables in all the dishes really did taste as if they were fresh picked from the garden that day.

I dine at Chiswick irregularly enough that I would expect not to be remembered by the staff. It's lovely to return, be greeted by the staff as one of their long lost, then have the person serving at my table telling me how lovely it was to see us back again.

The food is just great. The roast lamb is meant to be shared and it makes for a fantastic meal.

Loved every aspect of our lunch at Chiswick from booking to bill and everything in between we couldn’t fault it. The food was perfectly cooked and presented and the produce from the garden was outstanding. Great wine suggestion from the sommelier was the icing on the cake. Giving our children gift vouchers for Xmas and we’ll definitely be back.

It’s too bad that you only propose 1 French Champagne in the menu which is Ruinart and is a quite expensive one. Another option would be appreciated

Came here for my 30th birthday with my parents and partner. Service was excellent, food never disappoints and staff went above and beyond to make sure every need catered for. They even gave my folks a tour around the herb garden which they loved. Very impressed - most definitely will be back and goes without saying if you’re heading there - get the lamb!!

Had fantastic time 2 years ago at Chiswick's, so was 100% going to come back when we visited Sydney again. The food was good although, the menu changes. The service was just not up to par. Our waitress, while pleasant, was difficult to understand. Also, she removed drink menus before our last member of party arrived. Lastly, there were gaps in service between courses that were just too long.

It’s not as good as it used to be. The Chiswick experience was ok but noisy and the service was slow and unfriendly. The menu wasn’t marked gluten free, even though I asked for gluten free was served normal bread. On the plus side good cocktails and the miso aubergine dish was delicious. Probably won’t head back there.

The food was great. We appreciated how bad you felt about forgetting our dessert but not really sure the free drink your promised was reflected in the bill. It did sour our experience.... However, because the food was so delicious we will forgive. The grounds are superb!

The trek to Australia was definitely a challenge.

I made a rookie mistake and forgot to get a visa. I had to whip out my phone and apply only and after the longest minutes of my life, I squeaked it out with 3 minutes before the cut off. Then there was 17 hours of flying, and once I landed I had to teach two, 3 hour seminars back to back. #nobreaks lol

So the Chiswick was my first meal in about 24 hours, so I was hoping it would be as amazing as the menu sounded. It was worth the wait. :)

Easy to find through an Uber, as it is located in a cute little park. Service was great and honestly one of the best meals I have had. Everything was excellent: fried spatch-cock chicken, orange crispy duck, and the lamb shoulder was amazing. Plus, the desserts were fabulous. Overall, it was a great way to finish off a hectic day and I would comeback here in a heartbeat.

We recently enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Chiswick Gardens. The food was delicious. I recommend that you try the crispy duck and also the pork sirloin. Amazingly tasty. The service and ambiance was as good as ever.
Keep up the good work.

Great venue. Great service. Great cocktails. Tasty appetizers: beetroot salad, zucchini flower. The focaccia bread was a little too oily still tasty. Steak was a little fatty. Grilled prawns were good. I was disappointed by the duck dish: too cooked and a little too greasy. Also disappointed to have greens cooked in oil and w a lot of pepper. Lastly I had a tea which was supposed to come with petits fours and instead it came with chocolates.

We went to Chiswick Restaurant on the recommendation from the Lonely Planet travel book. As such, I was expecting it to be good but not necessarily outstanding. Every item we ordered was thought prepared, beautifully presented and, simply put, delicious. Our wait was very knowledgeable and have us wonderful suggestions. If I lived in Sydney, this would probably be my favorite restaurant to go to!
