Birthday lunch for dear husband and we had been intending to eat here for some time. It seemed surprisingly small as a restaurant, though it probably seats 60. Lovely decor and floral arrangements in a long and narrow room. Not a linen tablecloth place, but sweet felt mats on wooden tables. Comfortable chairs and banquettes. Lovely welcome and service from... More

It's got three hats.... which is a plus in attracting the food snob in me. Open kitchen with a charcoal grill invokes memories of Barcelona. When i heard that they prepared dishes in the slow smoked Japanese Robata style... i was hooked like a willing pike on the line. The interplay of vivid colours and textures is something that appeals... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our experience here at the bridge room. We are not used to complete fine dining but this restaurant has introduced us to a whole new world of food. The food is smart, unique and creative and not 'small portioned' like some believe fine dining restaurants tend to be. Entree, main and dessert was delightful,... More

The Bridge Room blew me away! I thought the food was divine. Being a vegan usually means ordering is pretty tricky- not here! There is a vegetarian menu and several vegan options were offered. I felt I was treated very well. The food is stunning and the service is stiff but helpful. Great wine list too! Highly, highly recommended!

Business dinners can become quite routine and same same even when visiting great restaurants, not so at The Bridge Room. With a business group of 6 of us we were treated to an extraordinary experience of food and wine. A great atmosphere, people talking, a little noisy with all the chatter and laughter of people having a good time but... More

Booked this restaurant for a special event and had the ala carte and was greatly disappointed, The Wagyu Steak was meant to be medium rare but knife couldn't even cut through the meat without shaking the table. The Pork tenderloin was even worst was it was so chewy and barely edible. Entrees were amazing though ...

Firstly, we found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. It went downhill from there. I believe The Bridge Room has just received a Third Hat, what amazes me is that they received one in the first place...the food was far from inspirational!. Have the judges/critics ever dined at Bilsons or Becasse?, they deserved their three hats!...a tragedy that... More

Wow. Every dish was innovative, subtle and amazing. Flawless. What more needs to be said. If there wasn't a 100'word minimum on TripAdvisor I would have stopped there.

Food was picture perfect and delicious. As we only had a main and a dessert there was a longish wait for the mains but we were warned beforehand and offered extra bread whilst waiting. The dishes are creative and different with beautiful presentation. Service was very attentive with perfect wait time between mains and desserts and we didn't feel rushed... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
