I came a little over a year ago when Eleven Bridge was 1989 and I fell in love. I bought my dad for his first ever fine dining experience and it was amazing on every level. Rewind to tonight... it didn't feel the same and I'll get to the food in a moment. The atmosphere has changed at Eleven Bridge.... More

Beautiful, ( but dark) restaurant in a massive Gothic building on Bridge Street. It's formal without being stuffy. The service was amazing. It ran like a beautiful choreographed ballet. My waiter was outstanding - friendly, yet on top of perfect service. Some of the best service I've had in a very long time. My sommelier was excellent. He had an... More

Eleven Bridge will be closing soon but we still enjoyed fabulous food and service. We shared sashimi and bread. Hubby had partridge carved at the table and I had pasta and Balmain bug. Desserts were divine. Do visit this icon before it's too late!

The snapper and steak onions were standout choices. Potatoes beaut too! The little things were done splendidly. It's closing fir renovations in a month or so - get there... More

Eleven Bridge was a pleasant surprise for us. We were not expecting the striking black and white decor, stunning service and feeling of being pampered. The prices are on the higher end but the atmosphere, delicious food and attentive service are what you are paying for. It was our last night in Sydney before returning home to North Carolina in...

Eleven Bridge delivers sophisticated and satisfying cooking of the highest quality. The kitchen presents great local ingredients in smart new ways - snapper with an understated accent of pineapple, chicken with a prawn and pork stuffing and delicate broccoli sauce, succulent oysters with tarragon butter - that give pure pleasure. The wine list is epic. The servers are attentive without... More

We booked Eleven Bridge for our Christmas Eve dinner. And what an experience it was. We were provided our own attentive waitress, or so it seemed. Our water order was taken and then we were given a rundown of the menu, the specials, and introduced to the sommelier. We ordered Campari and Lillet Blanc as aperitifs. And the Lillet arrived...

We came here for a joint birthday, 5 years on from doing the same at Rockpool. This experience was such a disappointment. Even the basics weren't quite right. The mineral water was warm. At $6 a bottle you would think they could keep it in the fridge. On the other hand the hand towels were ice cold. In a hot... More

Everything about this place makes me want to keep coming back. The welcome, food, drinks, service, atmosphere and location makes this a must visit. The standard of food is best in class. The service and knowledge is excellent, food is described and explained in detail. The Sommelier offers excellent choices.

This restaurant is extremely dark and painted in black, making it feel cold and uninviting (the high ceilings don't help) you feel like your in a great dark cavernous cave. The service was good. A cosmopolitan made on grapefruit juice instead of cranberry??? different..... The food was OK, but I wouldn't rush back.

Description
With an emphasis on this country’s finest and most sustainable produce, Executive Chef Phil Wood’s seasonally inspired a la carte menu offers a diverse selection of modern Australian dishes, interspersed with celebrated classics from the Rockpool Group’s rich culinary history.

Eleven Bridge celebrates the mastery and art of the finest cooking. In the kitchen, the skill of our chefs is paramount as we highlight the nature of individual ingredients and traditional cooking methods: a roasted lobster split and shared; a whole partridge steamed in bread; native abalone pan fried and doused in brown butter and herbs at the table. This is cooking that celebrates the perfect imperfection that can only come from cooking by touch, from resting a piece of meat or seafood that is cooked by flames or charcoal.

Eleven Bridge is a celebration of the conviviality of food, where the art of great service is heralded alongside great cooking. Our front-of-house team, lead by Silvio Brentan, brings the theatre of the kitchen into the dining room: carving, tossing and serving dishes table side. Combined with Head Sommelier Yuki Hirose’s award winning wine list and one of this country’s most knowledgeable wine teams, the service at Eleven Bridge is designed to highlight that it is the sum of all the parts that make up a great restaurant.

A statement on its iconic location in the heart of Sydney, almost 28 years since its original incarnation as Rockpool in 1989, Eleven Bridge remains the Rockpool Group’s flagship restaurant.

Eleven Bridge is a member of the French-based Relais & Chateux, an organisation recognised for its dedication to maintaining the highest international standards for hospitality and culinary excellence.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood 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.
