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!

High expectations coming as it came highly recommended. Service was ordinary. My friend had the barramundi and rosemary salt chips which were fairly bland.

I had the sirloin and the Paris-Brest dessert, which were nicer and more to the standard expected.

This place has changed my perspective on food. I’m now more keen to go to a nicer place with great food quality and service due to our experience last night. We’ll be back thanks to the incredible meal we had and kind service team. Thank you for a great date night!

It was a most pleasant evening. We have lived in the area for 15 years and don't no why its taken us so long to visit. Food was fresh and very tasty. We went for a 68 birthday for two and it was great.

We would like to see more variety with desserts. Chocolate Fondant (Anything chocolatey is always a winner).
Would love to see roast potatoes as a side dish
it would go so well with your share menu.
Your style chips I/We simply do not like.

On the two occasions that we have visited Staff have been absolutely fantastic. Only downfall we seen to always get placed next to a group table it ruins the dining experience.:(even though we have asked not to be place close to group tables.

This was nice, but not the best we've had from Chiswick. The mains were a little underwhelming. The service was a bit off the mark.

Extremely disappointing. I will never visit this restaurant again. I went when it first opened some years ago and was very hopeful it would be as good. Wrong! It was extraordinarily expensive with $48 for two martinis, the side plate of chips were tasteless and burnt, my husband’s main course of linguini with pippis was lacking in flavour, my son’s steak was thrown on the plate and covered with some sort of lettuce. The bill was exorbitant for the quality of food. The service was only adequate. When we first arrived a waiter introduced himself and said he would return to talk us through the menu... that was the last we saw of him! The tables were shoved together and the noise was overwhelming. Never again and I will not recommend it to anyone I know. What a shame for a restaurant that started so promisingly.

The moment we entered CHISWICK we were greeted with such a genuine welcome. We were seated at the window, the decor is relaxed but stylish. We received such friendly service. The food was sumptuous and the timing between courses was perfect. The entire evening felt special and I believe that they achieve this for every table. It was a lovely experience.

We dined at Catalinas for lunch but we looked forward to Chiswick more. And I must say comparing the two establishments there was no comparison. Everything at Catalinas was superlative - ambience, food, service. Maybe it was a busy night (30 Dec). The location was beautiful but the food lacked any wow factor. The staff looked withered and tiredly groomed, the kitchen staff looked exhausted and everyone was running around. We were very disappointed with our meal including the desserts.
