This small North Sydney Bistro is truly one of a kind for the north side. We were there on a very busy Thursday night, yet the service was efficient and friendly. I had the Halibut, which was the best I have ever tasted and my partner had the Pecan crusted chicken, which she said was also delicious. The food arrived... More

Waiting well over an hour after being told it was a 30 minute wait did not set it off on the right foot for me. We ordered stuffed mushrooms for starters which were good. My wife ordered the lobster pot pie and I ordered the special, panko crusted halibut. The order came and the pot pie was not hot. They... More

Warning, this is a little place with no reservations. Any party over 4, may have a problem. We are here because she also owns a B&B. food was very good. I'm gluten free and the chef offered to make the pecan encrusted chicken without the sauce and drizzle with maple syrup. It was awesome. We had bacon-wrapped scallops first. Excellent.... More

My family and I did a two week tour of the east coast and Newfoundland. On our return by ferry to North Sydney we checked into our fabulous B&B (different review) and headed for the Black Spoon recommended by our hostess Juana. What we found was a jewel, a cozy and delightful environment, fabulous staff, a wonderful owner and most... More

Great place to eat. Lots of menu selections. Very helpful and friendly staff. Great food. Nice atmosphere. Don't get put off if you see people milling around on the pavement outside, if you're waiting to get in for a table there's nowhere to wait inside. Just make sure you pop in and get your name on the list. The staff... More

I recommended the Black Spoon for their food and convinced my family who were here for my daughter's wedding to travel in 2 cars - 6 people to travel 20 minutes from Sydney to North Sydney. I also said we may have to wait for a table as they do not table reservations. They agreed to go. We arrived and... More

We had the Atlantic Lobster Dip with the grilled bread as an appetizer. It was delicious, lobster claws, very cheesy and lots of garlic! I could have licked the bowl clean!! I had the cajun seafood medley and my boyfriend had the peppercorn steak (grilled perfectly medium) with garlic mashed potatoes. Friendly and welcoming staff (great suggestions as well) and... More

We (my partner and my sister and her fiancé and son and daughter) attempted to eat here on Friday August 1st in the evening around 630pm. Since they don't take reservations we placed our name on the list for a table of six. We were told it would be 30 minutes. My sister had been here before and wanted to... More
