Blackwood features a number of Thai-inspried dishes that are sure to please. The hot bowls looked and smelled wonderful, but we went with the more traditional pad thai and chicken rice bowl. Both were plentiful and flavorful. Beer list features above-average selections, and basil margarita was so good we had two of them. Service was helpful and professional. Atmosphere is... More

We were at Blackwood for Sunday Brunch. A large menu indeed. Plates too full ~ It is my negative comment. Weighting is around 30 minutes and tables very crowded. There is outside and indoor sitting. Great Mimosas.

Our son lives in the Marina Area and to visit we make sure we go to Blackwood. Our favorite place to sit is outside by the fireplace. Everything we have ever had is great here. Today I had the stone pot mango chicken with fried egg on top. The server mixes it up for you at the table and I... More

A bit crowded but not overwhelming and a bit noisy but not dysfunctional. A super brunch with an attentive staff in an attractive restaurant. If you are in the neighbourhood go for it.

Family of six and we all agreed it was the best asian food we have tasted. The Millionaires Way has to be tried as a starter. We had 6 different main courses and all were very very good. Go for Happy Hour to take advantage of cheap starters and drinks.

Cool spot for breakfast. It was really good food, large portions, nice and fresh. I tried the Millionaire's Bacon, which was good, but not sure if worth the difference in price. Service was great, attentive and friendly. Did want to go back for dinner but time would not allow. Definitely worth a visit.

Came here to meet some friends for the first time and chat for a few hours. It's quite loud inside but could be typical for a Saturday late afternoon. Service was decent and the waiter checked on us multiple times. I had the Thai iced tea which was strong and decently sweet without being overpowered. We had the Ahi scoop... More

Excellent little establishment in Chestnut St area. Fusion style with heavy Asian influence. The Dinner Stone Pot dish with the egg on top is so wonderful. The server will mix it all up for you- love service! It's huge but I ate every bite!

Fantastic food . Never had anything like it. My dish , which I asked for without meat , had so many delicious al dente vegetables in it, was sublime. I could have had a bowl of the sauce on its own like soup!!!!! Very healthy and good prices too.

Staying in Marina District

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighbourhood into a party-going hotspot.
