It was our first night out in Sydney the start to our food trip. We both had 3 courses. We choose the crab and beef entree, as a main we both ordered the duck breast, and as dessert we had a chocolate dessert and the whipped black sesame. No doubt about the quality of the food, everything was spot on... More

My husband and I recently dined at The Bridge Room, and had one of the best meals out we've had in years. We'd heard great things about the restaurant, and it definitely lived up to expectations (and then some). The food was amazing - stunning, yet unique, combinations of flavours that really bring out the best in the star ingredients;... More

It has been a while since I visited the Bridge Room, due to baby number 2. So I thought I would post to say it is still as awesome as when i went in 2013, which I find amazing for a restaurant not to have lost its spark, and the team to have lost their passion, in any way. I... More

We took some friends here for dinner and we were expecting it to be amazing - we left quite disappointed. Food: The dishes were very hit and miss - the raw fish was very unappetising, the cod was stunning, flavoursome and beautiful, the creme dessert I liked but my friends version came out black, badly burnt and almost inedible. Servings... More

The food here is - as you would expect at a 2 hatted restaurant - pretty fabulous. Great ingredients with great balance and texture mostly work , although the recommended John Dory main was overpowered by too many competing mushroom flavours. However, they do need to pay attention to the small details - not filling wine glasses when empty, poorly... More

After a long week interspersed with travel, it was nice to return to Sydney early on a Friday. A long standing lunch with a work colleague took me to The Bridge Room, a 2 hatted dinner perched unobtrusively on Bridge St in downtown CBD Sydney where Ross Lusted was producing innovative, creative and dazzling food. The décor and buzz was... More

Had lunch here on a weekday in December when it was impossible to get a booking in another restaurant so close to Christmas. It's very popular with business people as a reliable place for good food and was highly recommended by a colleague who frequently takes clients there. Don't expect big servings, although this did provide me with a valid... More

So wonderful I had to write about it. I love eating out, I make a habit of it:) To me, the meal we just had (lunch) at The Bridge Room was one of the best dining experiences I have had in Sydney in a while. Magnificent combination of flavours, and I loved it. I noticed a comment or 2 about... More

You will leave with a much lighter wallet, but for very good reason. The food is sublime, the service is discreet but attentive, and the room is small and nicely organised. A fine place in Sydney to take someone for a special occasion.
