    The service was great from the moment I entered the restaurant. Very attentive and friendly. My colleague and I decided to get a range of entrees rather than a main. The oysters were magnificent and we tried both options. The crab gratin with the curry and pangrattato were next level. I was in a bit of food envy with the table next to us got the cheeseburger. It looked pretty good. Looking forward to going back again.

    Lovely restaurant to visit for a special occasion. The decor is lovely and you are are transported from Sydney Harbour to a Sam Francisco style bar. Service was excellent, we were very well looked after. Cocktails, wonderful food from an inspired menu.

    Perhaps it should be renamed Clam Express Bar. We estimate in our 2 hour window due to the mechanical efficiency of the staff had we allowed the pace of service to continue, we could have consumed our Entree, Main Course and a bottle of Wine within 35 minutes. In summary far too much pressure to consume and leave.

    The vibe is lovely, the guys was just OK. The crab taste of curry which wasn't noted on the menu. The steak was full of sinew and the burger pattie was rubbery.

    Had a great night at Clam Bar. Fantastic cosy clubby room, good food and exceptional service. Our sommelier was both knowledgeable and fun, when I asked for his name for the review he graciously said, “ you were served by three people” and gave me their names before I asked again for his. Robert, thank you for a great evening.

    Incredible service, high end yet down to earth and not stuffy. Food was wonderful. Sadly they butchered the birthday cake. They somehow removed it from the cake board, then damaged the box and put it back into the box upside down so it was unable to be carried and the sides had come in and destroyed the sides of the cake.

    What a beautiful little spot... Went for an early dinner with a colleague and stayed for hours (as though time stood still). The ambience when opening the doors was fantastic. Dimly lit with candles on tables. Looking at the bar through the array of bottles was cool. The kitchen, you could see in through a peek, full of energy, but no noise (other than the guests lost in their own tables of conversation). The staff all around were attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. And the food, every single dish we ordered which was... Oysters Monopole, Tuna Poke, Crab Gratin, Beef Fat Potatoes, Empanadas, Clam Spaghetti with a NY Strip Steak (a lot for 2 people), but was so damn good. Solid, solid, solid. Very Happy, highly recommend!

    Previously the well regarded Bridge Room, there have been minimal renovations to this self styled US steak and seafood restaurant. We were strongly suggested to have the Banquet menu for the six of us but we were allowed a substitution of Calamari rather than the Enchilladas in spicy pineapple sauce. In saying that, the food was unremarkable. Entrees were 2 Sydney Rock Oysters each with a very average mignonette sauce and two peeled king prawns each with a spicy tomato sauce from almost certainly a bottle and lettuce leaves. The calamari was chewy, a single scallop each was quite nice with a spicy breadcrumb coating. We shared the ribeye steaks x 2 with Dianne sauce which were very good. Dessert was a chocolate cake concoction with ice cream but the pastry was so hard it was impenetrable and certainly inedible. The wine list was very good and we enjoyed a Vouvray and two excellent Crozes Hermitage’s. With a mandatory 10% service charge it came to $450 per couple. It was certainly not good value. No culinary skills in any course were demonstrated and the experience was less than memorable for one of Sydney’s most lauded restaurants.

    This is a fusion restaurant so if you’re expecting NYC clam / steakhouse you may not appreciate this one. There is a mix of spices from Asian cuisine so the crab cakes taste like Indian and the prawn cocktails have Japanese spice. The wine list is awesome and while pricey you can find some really good wines are $150. From there they get more expensive but they are very good. The beers are pale ales, the bread is served with seaweed butter. Steak was okay however it was not cooked to the way it was ordered (too rare). The sides are excellent and the clam pasta was great however it was a small serving so the sides are important. Overall it is a nice place and the staff are superb. Not in hurry to go back.

    Food was good but found one of the waitress a bit rude. When we were in the middle of the conversation, she would literally stand there listen to your conversation and put pressure on you to order. It’s just not normal behaviour. Same as bringing the bill.

    Thank you all at Clam Bar for taking such great care of our whole family on Saturday evening....especially the kids, you sorted them out quickly and made them happy, so my wife and I could really relax and enjoy the night. Great Martini and a beautiful bottle of Beaujolais...cant wait to come back, maybe next without the kids - they can have pizza at home!

    What an absolute cracker Clam Bar is. It has the old world charm of a French bistro, impeccable service (in our case from the delightful Marie), and the food is precise and bursting with flavour - the quality ingredients and the care from the chef and team scream from the plate and every morsel is a marvel. You simply must try this place!
