This time I decided to try out the lunch set which they still offer over weekends. Surprise Surprise, I thought usually lunch sets will only be available during weekdays.
The price for a lunch set which includes steak is $58++, I thought this price was really reasonable for the quality of beef and get an appetizer and dessert of my choice. For non-beef eaters, it is $38++ for non-steak dishes – Chicken and fish were available. They just updated their menu slightly last week so I was pleasantly surprised when I got there.
Char Grilled Baby Gem
I ordered this and it turned out delightfully refreshing with balsamic vinegar. The slightly charred roasted baby gems added a punch on top of its crunchy juicy leaves. I liked the overall flavors mixed together with the grilled bacon. Indeed yum.
Presentation was simple with the Ribeye lying atop a bed of sauteed mushrooms. The Ribeye was well seared on both sides, tender and easy to slice. It was succulent and juicy with every morsel. I managed to finish the entire dish myself, which is rare for me when it comes to steak. I highly recommend this.
I always love Sticky Toffee Pudding and this one was accompanied by cool Ginger Nut ice cream. I bit into the warm soft sticky pudding, and the cold ice cream dancing around in my mouth as it melted. The ginger taste added a punch which I thought was really interesting. I cleared this plate within seconds! Truly a comforting dessert!
With so many hits, unfortunately the Lobster Bisque was a miss. It had a bitter after-taste after having a few spoonfuls.
The Woodfire Grilled NY Steak was also very well seared on both sides, with a pinkish-reddish hue when sliced open (she ordered medium). The NY Steak was tender but still not as tender as the Irish Dry Age Ribeye. My friend opted for the mashed potatoes instead of fries. That decision was the best decision ever as we both enjoyed the creamy mashed potatoes so much.
My friend also thoroughly enjoyed the Chocolate Profiteroles with coffee ice cream. And even though she was full from her steak, she managed to finish her entire dessert.
Paying $58++ for appetizer, main and dessert I thought this was a really good deal considering the serving portion wasn’t small and the quality of steak was great. I would definitely come back again for their lunch set if I have another chance. The service staff were very attentive and were constantly checking on us and asking us how the food was.
Ordered rare tenderloin steak. Yes it did come rare and almost ice cold on the inside. Call on the manager (man in a suit). Had no apologies from him. Simply took the plate and said "we will just recook this" and he came back 1 minute later saying "you ordered rare, it is supposed to be cold inside." - seriously???!! (rare on the inside is 55degrees, not 5 degrees). This didnt just happen to me, I have a group of friends with me, medium rare was cooked well done. medium was done rare. Their "trademark" sauces was truly a trademark. Tasted exactly like burnt oyster sauce from the bottom of a chinese wok. Food was bad. Service is atrocious. Shockingly expensive for a piece of lousy beef. My group had a poll. Having dinner at Astons would have been a way better idea. Pull your socks up Bedrock, fire the chef if you have to, change your entire crew. Delist your "trademark" sauce. Or simply wait to shut down. I would have given ZERO star to this review if I could. Seems 1-star is the minimum.
Bedrock Bar & Grill has a new three-course set lunch menu and it includes these (pictured) mains: for $38++ per person you get the seafood or poultry main (three choices to pick from), including this pretty plate of nicely seared baked barramundi fillet with sea asparagus (the 'it' ingredient now) and tomato tapenade. At $58++ per person, you can opt for one of four steak mains, including this slightly chewy 10oz Flat Iron steak with broccolini, potatoes, onions and red wine sauce. All steaks are fired up with applewood, so you can be sure they're packed with flavour. What's even better is that you won't walk out of this enclosed restaurant (good for getting away from people in town) smelling like smoke. Pick the creamy asparagus soup (also part of the set), and you're a big eater, you must order these a la carte dishes: the indulgent mac and cheese made with three cheeses (the recipe is a secret, $18), and the Bedrock pepper steak ($79) - a 10oz can of ribeye with homemade black pepper sauce. We hope we helped you sort out that (office) lunch date.
So the options of food at Bedrock is what you would expect of a steakhouse which needs no introduction
we decided to have a simple dinner and ordered the rib eye and steak burger.

If you can look past the cartoon-inspired name, you’ll soon realize
that Bedrock is dead serious about serving up some of the most authentic New York-style steaks with its list of choice cuts. Everything about the décor, from the mood lighting to the brown leather and circular booths, is reminiscent of a NYC steakhouse circa s** and the City; not too shabby at all.
