About

Located in the picturesque Chiswick Gardens, Matt Moran's Chiswick Restaurant has a menu that has been designed for sharing - showcasing the simplicity of fresh produce with the food reflecting the changing seasons. The heart of Chiswick is it’s kitchen garden where much of the produce for the menu is grown. The emphasis is on where the food comes from; the produce picked in the morning just in time to be on the plate by lunchtime.

We enjoyed the Gin on the lawn event from 5.30 and had a 7.30 dinner booking. We did wait for a little longer than normal to served once seated, and even then the drinks took quite a while so not sure what happened there given it was sparkling water and a bottle of wine?

However, the service was very friendly and the food was exceptional as were both the food and drinks menus.

Overall still an outstanding experience.

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!
