Sorry, I was just really underwhelmed by the food. I thought it was expensive and really quite uninspiring food. 2 of us shared 5 entrees and 2 glasses of wine. It was ok...............I wouldn't rush back.

Always a good choice to take out-of-towners with its beautiful garden setting and sunny outlook. Best for lunch to get the most out of the location. Great share food and good non-obtrusive service. Is pretty loud when the restaurant is at capacity, but if you’re on the window you can slide it open to the garden to assist with this.

Some dishes fabulous, and some a disappointment...the chef seems to tip the flavour balance towards sour...the Octopus and Snapper just too tarte and overpowered the great produce.

Asparagus and Paris Brest excellent.

It was not special. Our lunch here was to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Unfortunately, the noise level was unbearable (I left with a horrible headache) and we were seated so close to the couple next to us, it was embarrassing.

The restaurant in itself is an experience, the atmosphere created is truly one of a kind. This is the most perfect location for date night (or any occasion for that matter)!
The menu is the perfect mix of every flavour and you can see as the dishes are served that every plate is created with love. The lamb shoulder is certainly a favourite.
We'll be back!

Both food and service were impeccable as always. We've been here several times and had to get the lamb - again!! It never fails to impress!! Also got the whole chicken this time. So juicy and no dry bits!! All sides were tasty!! We ordered the steamed greens, pumpkin & feta, and chips. Will keep coming back!!

We had a lovely evening at Chiswick , however we all thought the food was disappointing. Octopus not tender, my daughters fish although cooked perfectly had a bitter taste. The others in our party of 4 had the pork loin which wasn't very tender and really a little underwhelming.
No complaints about the service though it was excellently. The restaurant wasn't very busy so not too noisy but I imagine if busy it would have been. Patrons could have been spread out more when tables were empty.

3 of us had 2 foccia+2entrees+3 side dishes and we had 2 main shared dishes-the lamb and the john dory and the bill came to $311.00 the fish was no more than an average sized and simple pan fried with some cooked veg and it's $72 and what a rip off!!!the value for money wasn't there at all.this res.used to be good when they had flat bread and stewed fish and their signature desert and their lamb was better before i'd never recommend it to any of my friends.overall the food wasn't not good enough

Sorry, Chiswick Team, however, I was left underwhelmed by my dining experience. I had the steamed snapper and found the food fresh, but bland. I also felt that the tables were closely packed, particularly for a Saturday evening special meal for two.

I have been here a few times before, for dinner, and enjoyed the food and ambience. This visit was at lunchtime and the noise level made it impossible to conduct a conversation. Would not recommend it if you want to catch up with someone you haven't seen for a while. You won't be able to hear anything they say.
Also I thought the food was very ordinary this time. My octopus was lacking flavour and was chewy. The burrata cheese was served as a lump on the plate and was pretty uninspiring.

Quality of the food was hit and miss. One Entree was perfect (Sashimi tuna) but the beef tartare lacked something - could have had a bit more spice/kick to it. One main was fine (Smoked King Salmon) and one was overcooked and quite dry (steamed snapper). The snapper was quite poor, very dry and a disappointment - a sad end to the meal. The side of roasted pumpkin with goats cheese was perfect. Staff were ambivalent and not that helpful - no recognition of our wedding anniversary.
