“Great banquet service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

I recently attended a banquet at The Black Spoon's banquet facility located in a converted convent near their North Sydney Restaurant. The food was excellent – a rarity at these kinds of events – the service was impeccable and everything was extremely well timed. The salad was second to none, there was an excellent variety of main courses and dessert was one of the best I've ever tasted. They even had an extremely modest corking fee that allowed the party hosts to supply their own wine and beer. Quite possible the best banquet food I have ever tasted. I would highly recommend The Black Spoon to anyone in the North Sydney area planning an event.

Pecan chicken and almondine haddock were amazing entrees! The chocolate mousse dessert was lovely too...

A definite must. A small quaint restaurant with a fantastic menu. Best meal I've had at a restaurant in a long time.
