  • "I love, love, love this restaurant and I dine here whenever I can. The food and service are always outstanding and the ambience is wonderful whether you're dining inside or on the patio. I highly recommend Bridges to everone I know!"

  • "Our Easter dinner was fantastic ! It was a three-course dinner starting with hearty appetizers or salad , entree, and dessert ! We had different entrees , but the most outstanding was the lamb shanks - cooked to perfection! Another entree was the horseradish-crusted salmon - wonderful and perfectly seasoned ! I would hghly recommend "Bridges" especially in the warmer weather. Their outdoor seaing is so comfortable along with their outstanding service. "

  • "Easter Brunch was a disappointment. The mushroom/artichoke hearts frittatta was flavorless despite being LOADED with green onion. The fried (?) potatoes were cold and dry. The dessert--coconut cake--was delicious."

  • "I have enjoyed this restaurant for many years. Always pleasant wait staff and great food. Outdoor patio is very spacious and pleasant, especially on a nice evening. Always feels like a "special occasion" at Bridges!!"

  • "My wife and I came here for Easter Brunch last year and just had to revisit. We were not disappointed! Excellent service from the second we were seated, very attentive waitress, but not 'in your face' every second. Paired with a nice bottle of Napa Champagne, each course was a real standout. Starters were unique and delicious (wife ordered Fresh Spring Pea Soup, I had the Asparagus Mushroom Quiche). The entrees were truly gourmet dishes (wife ordered Fried Chicken on Cheese Grits with Bourbon BQ sauce, I had the Grilled Swordfish with Mango Salsa and Grilled Veggies). WOW. And the desserts (wife had the Chocolate Cheesecake, I had the Coconut Custard Cake) were the perfect end to the meal! Wonderfully done Bridges - we will be back!"

  • "My wife and I were not in the mood to cook Easter dinner, and a walk downtown (three blocks), a fine and relaxed meal at Bridges, outside seating, all on a comfortably warm early evening, was our objective. It worked out just as we hoped. The appetizers (soup and salmon pastry) were good and sized perfectly. My wife raved about her perfectly cooked lamb shank. The tastes surrounding the swordfish were good. The wine (glass portions - Zinfandel and Sauvigion Blanc) were good. Dessert (coconut cake and sherbet) with a couple of cups of coffee finished off a fine, relaxed meal. "

  • "We enjoy going to Bridges and have since its inception. The host, staff and chef present a well-deserved admiration for not only the food, but also the atmosphere and staff. The food continues to be delicious, current and fresh. The wait staff demonstrate professionalism without hovering and the atmosphere remains comfortably upscale."

  • "The menu choices were so appealing I had a hard time deciding what to order. I chose the leek and potato soup -- creamy, perfectly seasoned and topped with crispy shallots. The seared ahi with Siraccha sauce over polenta with wilted spinach was spon on as well. We came early and it was nice and quiet; as the evening moved on, it got pretty noisy however. The only glitch was having to wait quite a while for decaf coffee to brew. Come on, folks. It's dinner time. People are going to want coffee after dinner. "

  • "Bridges provides the most consistently excellent food and service of any restaurant around. Happy to have it here in Danville! I particularly love what they do with seasonal fish and vegetables. "

  • "Bridges has become my favorite as it has so much to offer. Great lunch specials, a wonderful happy hour menu and drink selection, amazing dinner options and a very comfortable yet elegant atmosphere at all times. The staff is friendly, attentive and very professional. "

  • "Delicious, scrumptious and a just a general YUM when it comes to the food. From beginning to end the meal was and always is delightful, interesting and a general good time for your senses. Service is warm and wonderful with perfectly timed delivery between dishes and a constant watchful eye and wine top off when needed without ever being intrusive. Pricing is reasonable for quality, atmosphere and overall experience you receive and the Sunday - Thursday (I believe) prix fixe meal is an excellent option...quite the steal really!! Bridges is truly one of my most favorite places to dine; it is a rare gem of a place that just seems to do everything well!"

  • "My husband and I wanted to take my parents for a nice brunch for Palm Sunday. The menu was unique, each of us ordered different meals and enjoyed our meals immensely. We were told this restaurant was expensive but found that it was not "everyday" prices but affordable for frequent visits. I believe there was beautiful live cello? music and the service was outstanding. Enjoy anytime for a delicious and relaxing meal."

  • "The hostess took 10 minutes to come to the station, and I made reservations for outside, but she sitted the couple before us outside, they had no reservations. She told us there wasn't any tables avaialbe and we would have to wait another 5-10 minutes, so we went to look outside and there was a few empty and she seated us outside. Confusing but food was EXCELLENT and our waiter was EXCELLENT!"

  • "We are never disappointed with Bridges. They have everything anyone could want in an upscale restaurant- seafood, steaks, chicken, duck and vegetarian. Wonderful service, great wine list."

  • "Bridges is a pleasant dining spot. The service and ambiance are just right for a nice luncheon. The food is above average, but not exciting. The lunchtime sandwich fillings are tasty combinations, but one friend pushed what looked to be hamburger buns off of her chicken curry sandwich in favor of the bread basket on the table. Bridges is more fun for its bar scene and happy hour with more interesting dishes paired with affordable cocktails. Weather permitting, the outside tables are plentiful and, with a location away from the main street, fairly quiet. I appreciate that noise is quite moderate and conversations are actually possible, unlike many dining destinations these days."

  • "We had a great time on a recent Friday night at Bridges for a date night. The food was delicious and the ambience and service were great. They were knowledgeable about what dishes were gluten-free which is helpful for a newly diagnosed person with Celiac. I'd highly recommend Bridges! I've been there for lunch too which was delish!"

  • "We have been to Bridges many times for lunch and dinner but this was our first brunch experience. Our table had the frittata, which was bland and really didn't seem to have any cheese in it, as described, though the truffle creme fraiche was very good. I had the bacon eggs benedict which was good, but the muffin was cold, and untoasted, which was disappointing. My husband ordered the belgian waffles, which were good, but very dry, so we asked for syrup which was brought out ice cold-not good. Even my husbands mimosa was not very good, the champagne was of poor quality. Though the prices were reasonable, the food lacked overall attention to detail and I am not sure we would go back for brunch."

  • "My co-author and I were meeting with our new marketing manager for the first time. There were excellent menu choices for dinner, and the service was attentive and friendly, without being a distraction. The restaurant was relatively quiet, so it was easy for us to get acquainted and talk about marketing plans."

  • "While tasty, the Caesar salad had too much yellow lettuce rather than nice green romaine. We had a slab of pork cut like a t-bone steak. It was very good but huge! The waitress was very delightful and attentive. Go ahead and try Bridges."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "From the minute I was greeted by the hostesses then sat at the bar to wait for my friend (the birthday girl!) to arrive, the dinner (food and service!) on the patio, and lastly, the after dinner drink back at the bar, I experienced such attentive service - it was truly amazing!! The staff was very accommodating and very, very personable - the whole evening was thoroughly enjoyed by me and the birthday girl - it was a memorable experience!!"

  • "The food was magnificent and our server was so nice. We were celebrating our 10th anniversary and they made it special. The kitchen did an excellent job and we won't wait for a special occasion to return (although the nice touch from the pastry shop made it even more memorable)."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "We went for the first time and had lunch. The menu was great, the service was wonderful and overall a very special day. We would recommend Bridges to anyone. Will return for dinner with friends. We live in the South Bay Area, but the drive is worth it."

  • "We went there as a "by the way" and we were plesantly surprised! Good food, really great prices and the service is great.. Maybe more egg dishes for brunch would be great. The portions are actually big enough for 2 people to comfortably share. The wine list is great! We went to the adjusent Vine later and enjoyed the half off bubbles on Sunday. Nice lil find for a Sunday and it's so close to home! Will definitely return."

  • "This time, I brought my sister and niece for their birthdays--their first time. We reserved a table for five. We truly had a great time, got great service from our waiter, Rick. We shared the ahi tuna dinner as an appetizer and all of us loved it; he Aztec forbidden rice that came with it was special. The scallop dinner was another hit, moist and succulent, & not overcooked. Bridges has always beena great place to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, what-not."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We found Bridges to be a very nice restaurant, more casual than we had anticipated. Choosing a dinner was difficult as everything on the menu looked great. The meals we did choose were both very, very good. All of the staff were cordial and friendly however we both felt the service could have been a bit more attentive, twice had to request silverware be replaced when a course arrived."

  • "I wanted to try this restaurant since I first saw Mrs. Doubtfire almost two decades ago. I sat on the patio, tasted many wonderful dishes, and celebrated my birthday in style at Bridges. I live in Palo Alto but making the drive to Danville for this meal was more than worth it. Thanks for the wonderful service, Sean. My compliments to the chef!"

  • "I hadn't been to Bridges for awhile. My last time there was a very good experience. Saturday's brunch was quite disappointing. Service was slow. We asked for butter for our bread and it came when we had finished our meal. I waited a long time for an ice tea refill and had to flag down the waiter to pay the bill. Overall, not a good experience."

  • "Usually we eat here and the food is outstanding. The service is also often excellent. This time things were just a little off (waited initially about ten minutes for our server). Service was slow to start but picked up after our order was taken. Had the scallops which were a little on the fishy side (I have had these before and they are usually excellent). Again, just a slightly off night at a great place, we will be back."

  • "Bridges treats you like family. There is no other place like it. The entire staff, including the chef and part owner Kevin Gin, are exceptional at what they do. My wife and I enjoy fine dinning and this restaurant is at the top of our list. We come weekly.... Thank you Bridges!"

  • "Scallops that are cooked perfectly are hard to find. These are gems. Just right! The addition of a lovely sauce just enhances, but you never lose the flavor of the scallops. I have also eaten lunch at Bridges and the salads are original and very tasty. Happy hour has its own menu of delicious side dishes. Great place to gather."
