The Bridge Room Ratings and Reviews
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.
We attended the restaurant to celebrate my partner’s birthday. The staff were most welcoming and attentive throughout service. There was a great atmosphere and the food was an incredible experience especially the desserts. I’d highly recommend the tasting menu with the premium wine pairing.
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.
Service was snobby and unnecessarily so. They had run out of several wines from the wine list and made no apologies for not being able to recommend alternatives.
The maître d was the most dismissive claiming that we had the wrong time even though we had spoken to him twice to confirm our booking .
We have eaten at Bridge Room twice before and something has definitely changed and unfortunately for the worse.
An absolutely outstanding lunch yesterday, from the attentive service through to the food which was superb, I was almost emotional eating the quail entree, it takes a very fine chef's hand to balance so many flavours and textures that well. (insert applause) Thank you.
Absolutely loved the food and the service. Probably wouldn't go back as our experience of waiting outside on the street until the restaurant doors were opened at 12noon for our 12 noon booking was definitely an unwelcoming start to ourlunch.
Fit out and ambience don't match the food experience and we felt this also detracted from an otherwise superb meal. Tables seemed cheap and tacky for a restaurant of this caliber.
Unfortunately a disaster. Service timing poor - asked for wine order when food menu wasn't yet available, bread/olives only served when starters came out, lengthy delays, wine glasses removed before bottle was finished (final serve at bill). Food unimpressive . "John Dory" clearly wasn't that - probably flathead - and overcooked, salmon skin very bitter. Waiters nice but ill-trained.
Overall, the food was beautiful, esp. the zingy flavour of the Yabbies with tamarind and chill paste.
The first thing you noticed though was how cold it was in there. a gentleman next to us requested the aircon turned down a little and there was perhaps a minor reprieve.
The service was moderate for this level restaurant and inconsistent. The anticipatory element of noticing a empty wine glass and offering another was not there, we had to get the attention of staff 3 times to order more.
Food was great although we did have to wait over an hour between the second and third course.
We decided to leave due to the wait without saying anything the restaurant acknowledged the delay and apologized by asking us to stay for complimentary desert which we did.
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.
The food was delicious and the wine was excellent. The sommelier did a great job selecting wines to pair with all of our courses, and was very pleasant as well. Couple of critiques- the rest of the staff needs re-training. We had an array of staff showing up at various points to take orders/bring food/clear/etc.. and it was sort of unclear who was doing what or had which roles. Our waitress was oddly unprepared for basic questions about the menu, never introduced herself, and...
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.
