Anthony Donaldson started his career as an apprentice in Bundaberg, Queensland before heading for the UK. Over the ten years he was in London, Anthony worked with some of the world’s top chefs including Philip Howard at The Square (2 Michelin Star), and Brett Graham at The Ledbury (2 Michelin Star) which ranks number 14 in the world’s best restaurants. It was at The Ledbury that he built a strong friendship with our Executive Chef Jake Nicolson and how he came to head up the Blackbird kitchen.

    Nice to have this fine restaurant open again. Slow service from the kitchen and only warm food,but let's be realistic - everyone is in the recovery phase of business and staffing is light on. The offset is that everyone is polite and as attentive as they can be in the circumstances.

    The service was really good and attentive. My elderly parents had trouble with the menu selection so they were assisted very well and were put at ease. The food was very good and cooked exactly as asked. Generous serves so we all left satisfied . It was a birthday celebration. They allowed us to bring a cake and served it up with extras. The only negative was we had no tablecloth or coasters and that made our drinks drip onto our clothing and we were told the staff would join us in singing to the birthday boy. This did not happen but to be fair they were busy. Overall it was a lovely night with an absolutely awesome view of the river and Story Bridge.

    Great service, great food, great atmosphere. Go here instead of HSW, it is so well worth it and what else can you ask for? Also excellent and long drinks list with every possible cost option, Harald

    Unfortunately the entire meal was average. Service was lacking and we waited 10 minutes just to get the bill. There was no interest in discussing the menu and ultimately my only joy came from a well organised drinks menu.

    We had the fresh seafood platter which was delightful. Amazing service, striking city views and attentive service. So proud to invite my guest. Well done.

    The staff were very friendly! We ordered an entree, fish and lamb mains, and cocktail drinks, all of which were below our expectations, and overall not worth the price. We loved the view at the bar, but the music was in general too loud. It was difficult hearing each other, and it actually made me a headache.

    Fantastic food. The lamb was so good that I nearly licked the plate. My fiancee absolutely loved her steak and the wine. Service was on point - not over the top, subtle when you were mid-conversation but could hold a chat too. A cracking meal on a perfect day.

    Have been there once before years ago for my birthday. So I took my partner there for a night out and it was fantastic. Wait staff were all friendly and extremely professional, the food was exquisite and atmosphere was damn good too. Both had an excellent time.

    It was amazing and the dinning for my partner and I on our 1st anniversary for us and we really enjoyed the service. The staff were excellent, our waiter Andreas was kind,friendly,caring and looked after us like super stars. My partner has autism and he looked after her and made her feel comfortable and relaxed in warm environment the food was excellent beyond expectation. We can't recommend this restaurant enough.

    Love this restaurant but tonight the service was too slow. The waiter was lovely but was not around enough so we were left hanging and trying to get his attention. The steak was amazing as usual but I had the eggplant and it was so greasy I couldn’t eat it.

    I have been here a number of times. However I am currently on a vegetarian diet, and the only main meal was half an eggplant. It wasn’t the greatest ! And although I questioned the vegetarian choices and told it was limited when I ordered the beans it came out with bacon on them which I was not told. Service was amazing as usual . All other food was great. Just need to work on the vegetarian options.

    Group of 21 handled with ease, staff attentive, food exceptional, would recommend the Feast dinning option for a large group, fed everyone with plenty left over. Every dish expertly plated and tasted amazing. Will be dining again so we can try the many other dishes Blackbird has to offer.
