A word from Blackwood
Blackwood is the Marina"s new and Chestnut's only Thai-American fusion restaurant --with two fireside communal tables out front that give way to an interior of pillow-equipped banquettes and marble table tops.
We offer staple Thai-ness (pad Thai, crispy crusted tiger prawns), we also have some awesome unexpected-ness like sides of Millionaire Bacon (as seen on "united states of food"), the BW Burger (seasoned Wagyu w/ white cheddar, cilantro aioli, and sesame Thai salad on a brioche bun), stonepots for lunch, and a grilled Wagyu flank steak dipped in homemade 151 rum sauce, named the "Last Mid Night", Sea bass dish named "Deep purple sea".
We also offer an impressive 16-beer, three-sake, quagillion-wine list, plus we're serving breakfast every day ('til 4p), meaning seven days a week, you can start your day with a mimosa that's bottomless.

Diner Reviews
  • "Love the Pork Belly and Marina treasure. Would definitely come again to try other menu items as well."

  • "There were 8 of us, including two hungry kids. They helped us out by serving the two kids first. Everyone was able to find a delicious meal, including the vegetarian which is me. The food is innovative and features unusual combinations. I highly recommend the gelato combination for dessert. "

  • "I had a good time because of the company I was with but the whole experience was a let down. The server was really short with us and it wasn't a very busy night at the restaurant. The food started out good. We had an appetizer that was delicious and creative but then it just went down hill from there. The Pork belly was overcooked and the plate was mostly rice. The other dish we had (I can't remember the name) tasted like plain rice noodles. There was no flavor to it. It was a disappointment because the reviews were all really good. Maybe we were there on an off night. On a positive note, the fireplace out side with the communal tables is a really great touch. That's why I thought it might be a great experience. "

  • "This place does Thai food a little different to most (a real modern twist) but the result is quite exceptional. The Aftershock and Pork Belly are simply delicious. Good for groups too. "

  • "The food is really good, space is a bit small but comfy, service was good overall a good experience. A great place to meet with your gal pals."

  • "Wow their menu is fantastic. There were so many options that our folks couldn't decide. It was delicious too--a cut above the normal Thai fare."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "I don't think I've walked by Blackwood where there hasn't been a hustle and bustle of activity. I now know why...as the food and ambience were great. I'll be back soon."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "The staff was very accommodating of our four children in a party of eight. The staff was attentive, helpful and brought out a few extra snacks for the kids. The food was nicely prepared and presented. We liked all of the dishes and will definitely be back."

  • "I have lived around the world. I was beyond impressed with Blackwood's food. Excellent! I look forward to returning to Blackwood. Additionally, wonderful service. All around, a great experience"

  • "Fantastic but loose the TV! Everything was great - lovely patio but realy Big Bang Theory? Is that a Thai program?"
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "Excellent food. It's a bit tight and a bit noisy. Not a place for a romatic meal. Excellent and interesting food and large portions make it a great place to go when eating is your main focus."

  • "Very great awesome amazing delicious...except I wish I would have known this place is better for breakfast than dinner! Watch out for the spicyness not posted on the menu"

  • "We ate Valentine's dinner there and had a fantastic time. Great food, speedy service with a smile, and excellent dessert. We can't wait for our second visit to Blackwood."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "High end pan-Asian food. Love the Thai curries and the house special hot pots. Decor is very urban/upscale, not your typical Asian style. Only warning is the food runs spicy/hot, so you might want to ask for a mild version of some of the dishes."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "If you haven't tried Blackwood yet, you're missing out! The food, ambiance, and service are incredible here! I suggest just looking at their menu online to see how many unbelievable dishes they have. I would eat their for breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day if I could haha!"

  • "My expectations were highly fulfilled with excellent service and AMAZING food. The servers were able to recommend exceptional food suggestions. Was very satisfied with the fast pace restaurant and service. Will be coming back soon!! This restaurant has left me craving their marina strips. Nom Nom."

  • "This place exceeded expectations; way better than your "average Thai place." Excellent food - especially the tuna scoop appetizers and the chicken satay skewers (delicious peanut sauce and yummy roti - but they should give more of the roti). We loved the green curry and also enjoyed the ginger Thai street food. I didn't love the fried chicken dish we had, but you can't win them all. Also some of the best mango sticky rice I've ever had. Lastly, great job with the renovations. No traces of the Andale it used to be. Looks very upscale and love the high ceilings. We'll definitely be back! Look out Osha - I still love you, but this place will definitely steal some of your business."

  • "The menu looks creative. However, everything besides the ahi scoops that we had was just too sweet for entrees. One of our party had the Marina Treasure, and he said it was the worst meal he's had in the city."

  • "I had had breakfast at Blackwood several months ago and it was surprisingly outstanding. I had to check out their dinner menu and was quite happy with my choice. They have a good menu with many healthy choices, I highly recommend it. I will be going back there for sure."

  • "Blackwood has it all, an outdoor area with fireplace and flat screen tv, a beautiful dining room and food to match. The millionaire's bacon is amazing, the curries are delicious and spiced exactly how you want them, the noodle and rice dishes are exceptionally good with fresh and perfectly prepared ingredients. The service is excellent and the servers are helpful and knowledgeable. Breakfast and lunch are fun with the interesting and imaginative Thai fusion menu. A great place for a group or a party of 2."

  • "This place is now my go to when I have friends coming to town… Comfortable, quiet, beautiful, delicious, warm and affordable… I love the hamburger… But everything is simply wonderful. Thank you Blackwood and may you live forever!!! d"

  • "The restaurant is striking--very chic and sleek and elegant. But that's where the charm stopped for us. As we ordered, we reminded the server that one of our party is allergic to sesame seeds. She returned from the kitchen to say the chef would modify the recipe, but that we shouldn't be confident that he would ever do this again for us. The food was also disappointing. Spicey string beans arrived literally floating in a red oil sauce. The papaya salad was simpy, dull and not spikey enough. Our noodle dish was overcooked, mushy and lukewarm. Our final decision: once was enough. More attention to detail is a must if the restaurant is to survive."
    Dined on 10/28/2013
  • "If only the service were as good as the food. The food was very delicious. I had the yellow curry with chicken and really enjoyed it. Despite the restaurant not being full, we waited about 10 minutes before being waited on for even drinks and were then asked "if we had decided yet.". The meals came out before the appetizer. I asked the waitress if the apps were still coming and she said it came out of a different part and would probably be done soon. That defeats the purpose of the appetizer and we didn't really want them any more. After being served our meals, we were never asked how the food was, if we needed anything else or if we wanted another drink since we had finished our first."
    Dined on 10/18/2013
  • "Like everyone says the Millionaire's bacon is delicious as was the Wagu rolled beef with cucumber and beet root. The atomosphere is very hip maybe hipster and cool; upscale but the prices aren't. The pad thai was very good. It wasn't nice and moist, not soggy but it could have been spicier. The mango tiger prawns were average. The prawns didn't seem grilled enough and they were not really what I call Tiger prawns. They were only medium size. I would go back again if I was in the neighborhood. I like something different and you can get it at Blackwood."

  • "Made our reservation on OT but when we got there, they did not have our reservation, waited for about 15mins which wasn't that bad. But when our table was ready the server yelled at us and pointed us to where our table was. We seated ourselves and later had to flag down a server to order. Food took a very long time. But when it did get there, the Food was great."
    Dined on 9/24/2013
  • "Enjoyed the great food and friendly service. Make sure you have a reservation! But be prepared (even with reservation) to wait for a table (we still had to wait 20min) and to be seated (on a cooler night) outside."

  • "I've been wanting some Korean food for awhile now, and this really fit the bill. Good food, nice presentation, and reasonable prices. You can't get much better than that."
    Dined on 9/9/2013
  • "I had very high hopes for Blackwood, and was disappointed. According to the website it is a Michelin rated restaurant, and American-Thai fusion intrigued me as I love Thai food (both here and in Thailand). The fact that I could get last-minute reservations prime time on a Saturday night should have tipped me off. Everything about this place was great (service, atmosphere, noise level), expect for the food. Although presented beautifully, the food did not taste anything like Thai cuisine. Everything had a sweet (tamarind, maybe) spin to it. I mean everything - from the samosas to the supposedly spicy tsunami. I will not return and would not recommend to anyone who truly enjoys thai cuisine."
    Dined on 8/24/2013
  • "The food is good. There's better Thai food in SF but if you're looking for a quick fix at a decent price, Blackwood is a good option. Service-wise, stereotypically Chinese. Ultra pushy, invariably recommending the most expensive options (which, again, is not super pricey, it's just obnoxious to do that in general). The thing that annoyed me most, however, was that we were 3 people and they included a tip - never seen that for a party of 3. Additionally, when restaurants include a tip, they always present the bill with the words "additional gratuity" or they explicitly show you that the tip was included. Blackwood doesn't do that. They try to dupe you into adding more tip, and on a higher amount than the actual bill. Very dishonest."

  • "We had the stone pot and east meets west dishes, which were excellent! Would definitely recommend to friends and others looking for a great Thai restaurant. Will be back!"
    Dined on 8/17/2013
  • "Well we went there on a whim because they had an open time at the last minute and the next time we go won't be by chance. We had the ahi scoops (amazing), millionaire bacon (best bacon I have ever had and worth the visit by itself) mango shrimp salad (nothing special, but not bad. There was only 4 shrimp which was disappointing) and the pad Thai was some of the best I've ever had. Not to mention they gave these I think sweet potato crisps free which were addicting. Not to mention they had ommegang beer. I'll be back soon. As for service my water never made it to half empty and the dishes were cleared immediately. Definitely something they work on."
    Dined on 8/17/2013
  • "Delicious new addition to the neighborhood. Can't wait to go back and try more dishes. And that bacon - wow!"
    Dined on 8/15/2013
  • "My boyfriend and I decided to go here after he had a great lunch experience once. This time around for dinner, food was SUPER greasy and no spice to it at all. We ordered 2 different wines ( which were good, except the waitress brought us the wrong refill, even after repeating the right name wine), calamari (really greasy), papaya salad (no taste), and the pad kee mao (not spicy at ALL, and if you know Thai food, this dish is SUPPOSED to be spicy!) The servers were nice but with as many as they had working and the small restaurant, service was not the best and somewhat erratic. The decorations are the only cool thing to note at this place. This place was definately a dissapointment."
    Dined on 8/6/2013
  • "3 of us shared the stone pot, after having the tuna appetizer and the calamari. The dishes might appear to be expensive if you look at the menu, but it is a lot of food for the main courses. I had the tilapia on a previous visit and it was enough rice and fish for two people easily, and absolutely delicious."
    Dined on 8/1/2013
  • "This is a fabulous place. The menu items are so creative and the flavors are amazing. Everything, even a simple green salad, is delicious. Be sure to try the Ahi Scoops--wonderful!!"
    Dined on 7/22/2013
  • "This is fusion at its best. I was totally surprised how awesome the food was. Was expecting good but not great. A neighborhood gem, I really hope this place will get the success it deserves. There's something a bit off with the ambience though, not a huge deal but maybe it just felt a bit too bright. The outside section is better."
