Opening in Cronulla in 2016 by three mates Daniel Sorridimi, Robert Lechowicz and Paul Pisani, Blackwood has quickly become a favourite meeting place for locals and a must-visit brunch destination for visitors from around Sydney. Expanding to include a Bondi location in early 2022, blurring the lines between café, restaurant and bar, Blackwood now offers two distinct venues with the focus firmly on the essence of the way the owners love to dine: fun and vibrant, super sleek but comfortable design and the feeling that you’re welcome anytime. Michelin-star trained co-owner and executive chef, Robert Lechowicz, brings you a bright, broad and seasonal menu with Mediterranean and Asian flavours grounded with French technique, utilising local and seasonal produce wherever possible.

    I am so sorry but I really had to let you know about our latest experience. I often come for breakfast and lunch and service and food both are great. I booked dinner with my Family and we were sat at 6:45 pm and sadly not even given a glass of water until past 7:15 pm … my husband was ready to leave as it was early with few tables booked and many staff walking around. The food saved the night for us. Everything was lovely and shareable. I hope that you make the staff aware. They were all lovely but a little unorganised.

    We enjoyed our food and the service was efficient. But the loud music and speakers above our heads made it very hard to have a conversation and to have a relaxing dinner. It’s a beautiful local eatery where people come to relax, to catch up with family and friends and the last thing they need a Big Bang in their ears. Note to management: please make the music softer and not so overpowering, otherwise looking forward to go back.

    We were forgotten about sitting outside. Manager wasn’t friendly at all. Especially when I had to go inside to order more drinks from him. It’s a shame cause we live just around the corner. Breakfast staff a lot more with it than the dinner staff.

    Finally a place you can sit comfortably without drafts and open doors on a cold night. Food was great and completely different from lunch menu. Noise level wasn’t too bad…although the restaurant was less than a third full.

    The food was amazing but service was pretty slow. Our drinks order was forgotten and only showed up after we’d chased, as we were finishing our first course. We had a really long wait between those dishes and our mains (30+ mins) and then when our mains were cleared away, no one came to check in on desserts or more drinks. After 20 mins we stopped someone and asked for dessert and it’s came pretty quickly. The food and ambience were great and the wait staff were lovely (when they came to us) but it just seemed understaffed and our meal was a bit disjointed as a result.

    Blackwood - BondiResponded on 11 October 2022Hi Sophie, Thank you so much for choosing to dine with us and leaving a review! We apologise about your experience and we would love to rectify this. Yes, we were definitely understaffed the evening you dined with us, both on the bar and floor but we wouldn't want this to be your final dining experience with us! Please call or email us if you'd like to re-book dinner with a round of drinks and dessert on us! Ask for Tiana, she is looking forward to hearing from you! - Blackwood Team

    Had an 8pm seating and were encouraged to order 3-4 dishes per person, they all came out very close together so it was crowded and rushed and not great value to eat that way. They advised us it was due to the “late” seating

    Staff was great, very friendly and attentive. Booked for inside but because it was a nice night the staff got us a great outdoor table, which was good as it is very loud inside. Food was delicious, we had some minor mishaps and they were so gracious to take the cocktails off the bill which was very appreciated. Will definitely go again as it is right in our neighbourhood. Very enjoyable dinner &evening. The ambience is light and friendly.
