I chose the steamed scallop pudding for entree. It had a lovely light texture with flavours that burst while not being overwhelming in the mouth. My main course was beef cheek which was wrapped in treviso and accompanied by aged sirloin and hop puree. The beef cheek melted in my mouth and was delicious. The sirloin was perfectly cooked -...

One word : Outstanding dinner, the place to be in Sydney. Chef's creativity is above reality, never experienced such refined taste before. As a main course we had duck and lamb. Meat prep and cooking was superb. Exactly what you want to eat, a perfection. Dear reader , if you love food with something very different, you have to try... More

Having had experience in tasting menus at a number of high profile restaurants I can now appreciate subtle difference that create the difference between really good, excellent and the exceptional. The bridge room has won many accolades this year from the good food guide, and I was keen to see for myself. I booked well in advance, but was quite... More

The food was well presented and tasty however for a restaurant named 'bridge room' there's no views of, well really anything let alone a bridge. The property is quite narrow and intimate. Avoid sitting at the front table, on a cold day you'll feel a wall of chill every few moments as the doors open.

We went to The Bridge Room last night as part of our Australian honeymoon. We had booked a while in advance and mentioned twice that it was a special occasion. Nothing was mentioned and nothing special done. The room is beautiful and service efficient but not extraordinary. The serviettes were smelling horrendously of bleach - disturbing with the food!! The... More

Certainly the "place du jour" in Sydney and perhaps my expectations were raised unreasonably. The room itself is not quite "Scandi Stark" but the minimalist decor doesn't really add to the warmth. The staff were in the main attentive but not overly engaging and at times the description of meals seemed a little perfunctory rather than enthusiastic. We enjoyed the... More

The Bridge Room is not a glamorous space, being long and narrow, with no view to speak of, but the food is outstanding. Added to very pleasant service and an interesting but expensive wine list, there is really nothing to complain about. Perhaps a better selection of Australian rieslings and semillons in a wine list which is rather top heavy... More

We came here to celebrate an important milestone and found the service to be good coupled with great food and unpretentious ambience. We enjoyed every single minute of the experience. I strongly recommend this restaurant.

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.
