This was my second visit to the Bridge room and again the service and food are outstanding, especially the Moreton bay bugs, with roasted chilli paste & tamarind. For our group of 6 we were at 3 tables for two that were placed together and that made it very difficult to hear the conversation if you were at one end.... More

Courteous and attentive staff. They have a separate vegetarian menu if you request. Had the oyster starter, duck main and passion fruit dessert. Excellent in every way! A nice cosy environment.

The restaurant is located in the heart of Sydney's business district on the ground floor of a building that I would guess dates from the 1920s. It is a long thin room with no curtains and carpets making it very noisy. The menu has about eight choices for each course. Mains are around the $50 mark. The cheapest wines are... More

Had read many great reports about this place and Ross Lusted. It was a memorable experience, with very personable wait staff, amazing food, and a high quality wine list. I made an error with the booking time but the maitre'd was very understanding and still found us a table! Worth very minute.

Seriously good food, innovative, imaginative, based on outstanding culinary expertise. Four of us had 3 courses each with good wine by the glass. Every mouthful was declared sublime by all of us! What more could you ask. $350 per couple. Enjoy - we did!

My wife and I attended the Bridge Room on a Wednesday evening. Booked for a 6 pm dinner. Tip: Don't arrive too early as doors only open promptly at 6. The welcome, the waiters and all involved were delightful and informative. The restaurant itself felt stylish and modern. We only had time for a main and desert. The main took... More

As one of Sydney's newer fine dining restaurants, the Bridge Room deserves the great reviews it has been enjoying. My recent visit was a business lunch mid week and all three courses were highly creative and flavourful. Chef Ross Lusted deserves his recent high profile awards. The Bridge Room staff is professional and very efficient and could be a little... More

Very good early dinner at this modern Australian restaurant. Great service as well. We had chili sauce bugs, robata-grilled raw beef, Izakaya style chicken, sirloin steak, and ash grilled duck. The whipped black sesame dessert was a marvel. By the time we finished, the place was already packed!

Decided to come here after seeing the chef make a guest appearance on masterchef australia. A nice dining room, though the tables are quite close to each other There is no set menu for dinner, just a la carte. I started with the crab entree. It was light and fresh. I can see why people would complain about the portion.... More
