“Disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

The food was VERY disappointing salty, flavours were not balanced and bones in fish. The dishes were VERY pricey. The waiters were excellent, however upon leaving when taking my card the waiter said "il put the tip on the card", very very rude.

“Great place to eat.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Tapas menu excellent. We had a number of different items but the polenta chips with the Gorgonzola sauce were fantastic. Mouth is watering thinking about them. Next time we just might order plates of these.

“Great food- but very pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Great food, small serves, but too pricey. Drink menu is extensive with some wines that are not commonly seen, but all are too expensive. I know it is Sydney but $11 + a glass? But they had a good crowd for a Wed night, so people must love the place. Service was fine

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Bloodwood serves generously. Their cocktails are Fab. The only grumble is that they won't take bookings of less than 8 which means ,to get a table ,I had to get there really early at 6 30 pm and wait until my friends arrived at 7.30pm.. The service is A1. The food is delicious. The price reasonable. Atmosphere great ,Staff very friendly, even to "oldies" as we are.Will certainly be back even if I have to get there early again. Five Star.

“Plenty of Attitude”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Nice bar, great food - but the evening was dampended just a little by the surly attitude of the staff. Really, why do these people work in restaurants if they just can't be bothered being pleasant to their customers?

note to wait staff: bad attitude = poor tip.
