Blackwood American Grill - Corona

Anita Drink | Jan 18, 200807:42 AM     3

The Blackwood American Grill just opened in Corona. It is located off the Magnolia exit near the 15 freeway in a business complex. I was really surprised to see this type of restaurant in an area that is prone to Chili's and BJ's. The interior of the restaurant is very upscale and beautiful. When I visited on Thursday night, the restaurant was pretty empty, with the exception of a handful of businessmen at the bar. The restaurant has low-lighting, but not to the point where you can't see the person next to you. It gives off a very upscale yet relaxing ambiance.

We started with the crab cakes that were served with a wonderful mustard dressing. The crab cakes were nice sized and delicious. One of my companions had the Kobe beef burger which was cooked perfectly medium and very tasty. It was a very good sized burger. My other dining companion had the sake and miso chillean seabass. The fish was absolutely perfect! A really great piece of fish. The only complaint was the rice that accompianed it was a bit overcooked. I had the Blackwood salad with rotissere chicken. The salad was very good and the chicken was perfectly tender. We finished of with the banana creame pie, which is a mini version of the real thing. It was heavenly. I'm not a big dessert eater, but even I couldn't stop eating it.

The service was very attentive! The waiter was extremely kind and helpful and our drinks were always full. Definately give this place a shot if you are in the Inland Empire or passing through.
