Food was as expected something additional such as an amuse bouche wouldve topped it.
We did however receive a small plate of sweets for my partners birthday. The tasting & wine pairing menu was not written so made it difficult to pick between what to get. Especially for the wine pairing, trying to pick between the classic and premium was a finger in the air. Sommelier gave no guidance in that process and was incredibly hard to understand, that was not an enjoyable experience

The ambiance of the restaurant was not desirable, the room felt small and crammed. The menu could have been more varied. Wine list was not as extensive as other chef's hat restaurants.

The Bridge Room was fantastic. It was refreshing to be given a variety of ordering options. The attention to detail in the food presentation was exceptional and that transferred to the taste which is not always the case. The service was professional yet personal. All in all a great choice for our special dinner on our interstate weekend visit.

Amazing food, the degustation was awesome (and I’m vegetarian so that it unusual for me!). Service was very attentive even though the restaurant was super busy.

My wife and I belatedly celebrated my birthday at The Bridge Room and elected the four course a la carte with matched wine. This was a good choice and a wonderful experience. Of the four dishes, one was cooked beautifully and delicious and the other three were of a slightly higher standard. The young sommelier knew her stuff and matched the wines perfectly with our meals. The service was of a high standard and the one criticism would be that the room is quite loud with mainly hard surfaces.

Some very nice, interesting and well integrated dishes worthy of 3 hats, but the majority were not of that standard. Service was mixed - some staff very professional but others left something to be desired. Staff were not particularly attentive. Quay and Sepia are well above TBR in quality of both food and service.

A truly wonderful experience. I booked this "hatted" restaurant as a treat for my husband's birthday. We were delighted with our visit.The food and service were excellent. Each course was a delight for the tastebuds. My husband is a true wine buff and knows his wines. He took the chance on the sommelier's suggestions and was most impressed.

We went there with our parents to celebrate them visiting from overseas.
We've enjoyed every course.
Every dish had a special twist and was delicious.

Well done, we enjoyed our dining experience!

We were given a gift voucher for Christmas for The Bridge Room, and we were really excited to go. Unfortunately we were both really disappointed with our experience. The service was poor, we had to chase up all of our drinks, and we sat in the restaurant for 30mins without a drink and 45mins without any food (when they were far from capacity). While some things were delicious, others were not so appealing. We also went for the 4 courses- and were left feeling hungry at the end of it.

The bridge room is a wonderful venue , from be wine a solid clean environment fantastic however the service was easy to stiff and the head waiter took himself too too seriously which was a waist of time . We had to work the waiters to get them to open up and reveal personality. The degustation was good but way over priced and $25 for a cocktail...please!

A sensational way to celebrate a special birthday. Food was absolutely delicious and the staff wonderfully helpful. The only gripe I have is the 1.5% surcharge on credit cards. From a customer point of view an easy way to increase pricrs. I don't know many people who have hundreds of dollars in their wallet.

This was my 2nd time to TBR and the food has definitely improved.
All 4 courses were very delicious. The Grilled Pork, Beef (course 3) and Black Sesame (course 4) dishes were very tasty & the highlights.
Ambience was quite casual and simple for a fine dining restaurant.
The letdowns were that there was no non-alcoholic drink menu; no description of the tasting menu, and the service was a bit snooty/snobby. Dishes came out quickly and the staff were professional, but not one bit friendly at all.

We were in Sydney for the weekend. This was our second time dining there. The food was totally awesome and we loved every dish even the bread. We didn’t choose the tasting menu as we like to try varieties. Service was good though a little curt but not rude. We did have wait a while before our bread were served. The ambience was nice. We will definitely dine here again the next time we are in town.

Warm a friendly greeting from the staff, with top notch service. We had the tasting menu option with the matching premium wines and was wowed from the first dish to the last. Staff were very attentive, although one waiters was new and unsteady with his description, but remembered everything, so no big deal. A fantastic evening all round.
