Fabulous and beautifully prepared food. Excellent service but would have liked to see more Australian and local wines on the menu...especially by the glass. Pricey but great for a special occasion. Highly recommended.

Excellent quality of food and preparation.
Unfortunately, the wait between the courses was very long (more than 40 mins between first and second course), and the noise levels were very high, negatively impacting on the enjoyment of the excetionally good food.

This was our first time at the Bridge Room and despite my very high expectations, the restaurant delivered on all accounts - and then some more. Food was out of this world - amazingly presented and beautiful flavours.

We were most impressed with the level of service and how the staff interacted with us - always with a keen eye on empty glasses to fill up or plates to clear.

The wagyu shoulder and short rib dishes were exceptional, the smaller seafood dishes were good but the ocean trout, although cooked just right, was a bit bland and boring. Service was relatively average for a 3 hat restaurant

The food is sensational. Presentation beautiful, taste exquisite. Every single dish 10/10 but special mention goes to the Moreton bay bugs, the duck and the asparagus dishes. Thank you chefs.

Superb service from our brilliant waiter (lovely Brazilian accent) and sommelier.

It was my birthday and an extra dessert dish was delivered with candle. It made my day.

My only niggle was having to stand outside the restaurant because we were early (by 6 mins). Maitre d could have handled it better.

The food was exceptional, the service was exceptional and the decor is exceptional. Unfortunately, there were a couple of "blokes" who wanted everyone to hear their conversation. Luckily it detracted minimally from the experience. We had 3 courses and they were all wonderful. The raw wagyu is outstanding.

Food is great but the quantity is not value for money.
Tables are too closed to each other. I can hear what's next table conversation. Therefore I don't want to stay too long after dinner.
I asked for a quiet table but end up sitting so closed to others.

 (San Francisco)·Dined on 2 September 2017

Very pleasing food, presentation, and generally smooth service. Wines are a bit on the expensive side. Also it was not clear that there are "best" pairings for the dishes. (It would also help if servers told the prices when they are very expensive. At least one of the wines by the glass was substantially more expensive than others on the list)

The above notwithstanding, I would not hesitate to return when we are next in Sydney.

Celebrating our 15 year anniversary, we decided to try a new fine dining restaurant. The location of the restaurant is understated with no beautiful views to distract you from the prime attraction.. the food.

We enjoyed a 3 course dinner that was beautiful to look at & delicious to eat.

The service was fantastic, although it was difficult to hear the service staff present each dish. However, this is something we experience at most fine dining restaurants & having a menu mitigates it.

The food was visually outstanding, and every dish (3 courses each) was great with every component blending together well.
We had booked for 12 noon, but were allowed in about 8 minutes past noon. Standing on a very windy street corner for 8 minutes was not something I expected - outrageous. My niece had apparently arrived at about ten to twelve and was told to go away for at least 15 minutes.
We had each chosen a dessert wine, but these were not brought to us. We only realised after finishing

Food was exceptional, service was very good. I was disappointed with the noise level in the restaurant. Very loud and difficult to hear my dining partner across the table. This was not because other diners were necessarily loud, but rather the acoustics in the restaurant were very poor compared to many other Sydney dining establishments. I was expecting better in this department for a 'Three Hat Restarant'. Complimentary petit fours for our special celebration was a nice touch.

the reason I like The Bridge Room is that you can have a conversation and enjoy absolutely delicious food. The service is attentive without being over the top and intrusive. It attracts the "who's who" in Sydney so you are sure to see a few recognisable faces.

Absolutely lovely food and vegetarians have some delicious options. The most beautiful dish was in fact what the vegetarian ordered. Whilst the service is professional I would enjoy a greater level of warmth and welcome. The restaurant is quite sparely decorated and the ambience is subdued as a result. Having said all of that I am sure I will be back and it is a great venue for a business lunch.
