- Pricey, a bit noisy, but great!RobNGlenDined on 9/20/2014Only complaint was the high price, and the noise. Very enjoyable and the service was great.Special Features:
- Expected MorecasualgourmetVIPDined on 9/20/2014This restaurant is popular and very crowded. It has a grand reputation. It's nice dining, but the appetizers and desserts are just passable,ordinary and uninspired. And....the entrees simply don't taste that great. Nothing special,when special is what was expected.Special Features:
- Snooty staffMJ75VIPDined on 9/19/2014I made a reservation online and had requested outdoor seating. When I updated the reservation time online, the notes request did not stick, apparently. So my reservation was there but staff refused my date and I the outdoor seating. The outdoor patio (with live music) was the main reason we selected the restaurant. boo. Poor service by the restaurant.
- Excellent food and lovely ambianceSuesellDined on 9/19/2014The perfect place for a casual, relaxing lunch with an old friend. The wait staff didn't hover and let us order leisurely. The salad I ordered, with pork tenderloin was unique, delicious and fairly priced.Special Features:
- Girls nightJBailDined on 9/12/2014Our server Maria was outstanding! Mad our get together even more specialSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Amazing mealTootieDined on 9/10/2014Great place to celebrate. Took my Uncle and Aunt there for a special meal. It was EXTRA special..Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Diaappointing - husbands bdayPamelaVIPDined on 9/9/2014We had a 15 minute wait once seated before being greeted. Waiter had trouble opening wine we brought. A 2nd waiter came to pour and poured so we could sample - didn't know it was OURS. Bad table behind a pillar even with many empty tables. This was the final visit for us - service is bad for such an expensive restaurant. We used to eat here often - this was the final straw - shouldn't have hoped it would be better - husbands bday celebration was disappointing, we redid the evening at Esin the next night - it was perfect!Special Features:
- Great AmbianceFalconVIPDined on 9/6/2014Free Valet service, great ambiance, good service, but the food was only average.Special Features:

- Best waiter Ben.jjtkDined on 9/4/2014When I made the reservation I did not mention that it was my husband B-Day but Ben heard my toast. He brought a cup cake with a sparkler. How thoughtful. His service during the entire meal was great. Thanks for a wonderful evening.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always leaves me wantingregularJaneVIPDined on 8/31/2014Bridges has a wonderful location in Danvelle and the ambiance is very nice. However, each time I go I keep expecting the wait staff to be a bit more attentive, but it just never happens. It's not that busy there on a Saturday at 11:30 AM and still you wait and wait for someone to take your order. Then you wait still some more before you finally have to ask someone for bread or a water refill. The food is good but the service always disappoints.
- Sisters birthdayOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/30/2014We brought my sister her for birthday. They accommodated our request for seating in an area from Mrs.Doubtfire (her fav. movie). The food was delicious, everyone was pleased with their choice, the desserts yum. Our server Rick was awesome and very helpful. We will definitely be back.Special Features:

- perfect celebrationhappy25Dined on 8/26/2014My wife and I celebrated our anniversary there recently and had a wonderful experience. We heard good things about the restaurant from friends, but had not tried it until that evening. What a nice surprise to have such a place in Danville.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Ambiance needed tweekingmangabeneDined on 8/24/2014We had a reservation for a nice outdoor patio table. They had live music for brunch, our table was close to the music, a guy with a guitar. The music was too loud, like annoyingly loud for a Sunday brunch. Service not too great that day, slow not very attentive. Food was good. The sun was moving and was beating down on a couple of us..alternating, added to the annoyance. Had better days thereSpecial Features:
- Sunday Brunch Great!LoveFoodVIPDined on 8/24/2014It is hard to find a great eggs benedict and this place has it! My husband LOVED their waffles too. It was lovely to eat outside and listen to some live music. I would definitely recommend this place for a nice brunch that has great food, great service, without being too extravagant in price!Special Features:
- What an amazing place to dineOpenTable Diner Since 2000Dined on 8/23/2014So far I have been there 2 times and cannot wait to go back again...If I could give it more then 5 starts I would.Special Features:
- dinner for fourOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 8/23/2014This was the first time each of us thought we had the best meal (party of 4). Duck, sea bass, swordfish and a steak, each cooked perfectly, came with different delicious side dishes. Great dessert too, coconut cake and crème brulee.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Birthday celebrationSmilesDined on 8/21/2014Great place to celebrate a birthday. Bridges surprises the guest with a delicious cupcake on a lovely plate.Special Features:
- A Reliable Lunch ExperiencesmithoutVIPDined on 8/20/2014I lunch at Bridges on a fairly regular occasion. The outside dining area is very relaxing and inviting. The prices for lunch are reasonable for the Danville area. The food is not outstanding, but not bad either. Its offerings are consistently good. The lunch portions are much too large though. It would be preferable to have a choice of sizes like Chow's offers up the street. As far as the wait staff, they are capable enough, but there's not much warmth or personality, I've also been here for happy hour a few times, but found it lacking. The bar is outdated in its motif and the layout is awkward. Again, the staff was capable enough, but not much in the way of follow-up to ensure that we had what we needed.Special Features:
- A perfect family celebratioinBarakhanaDined on 8/19/2014It was a perfect evening from start to finish at Bridges for our family. The pork tenderloin, Potato Gnocchi, Salmon, and Mexican Prawn were cooked to perfection and delicious. The creme Brulee was heavenly, and the mango sorbet refreshingly delicious. The service so attentive and efficient. We have been going to Bridges for years and this evening was especially memorable. We will be going back for sure.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- We love Brigdes but!OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 8/17/2014We go to Bridges a lot but had not gone for brunch. The food was outstanding. Service on this visit was not to good. We waited for service while many folks that came in after us were served. Anyway we will be back as we go often for their happy hour on the patio. Try the blue plate special for a real bargain.Special Features:
- A lovely eveningPattyVIPDined on 8/16/2014We had a wonderful evening at Bridges. There were 4 of us, just getting together. We had a drink at the bar - nice. The salads were fresh and wonderful. We had the steak specials & duck. All cooked perfectly as we ordered. Service was exceptional! We are looking forward to returning.Special Features:
- Creative chef and fresh ingredientsWconnollyDined on 8/15/2014Very much enjoyed my second trip to this Danville restaurant. Everything was delicious and the price is reasonable.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 8/15/2014The server forgot to server one of the entrees and never noticed until it was brought to his attention.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2003VIPDined on 8/15/2014Food has been consistently good. Presentation is good too.Special Features:
- Outstanding!!!OpenTable Diner Since 2003VIPDined on 8/14/2014Loved the food, beautiful plating, outstanding appetizers. A lovely experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Not greatOpenTable Diner Since 2008VIPDined on 8/14/2014We were seated in a booth right next to the open kitchen area, which was very loud. There were many employees standing around while our server struggled to keep up with his tables. it took a long time to get his attention for a glass of wine. We like the casual atmosphere, but the employees here are very unprofessional, sprinting with food, flipping pony tails in front of the food counter, being overly loud. They can still have fun while being professional. Lobster slider was flavorless and dry, salad was overdressed and boring, meatloaf was very good, greens were not. Drinks and wine selection is good, but very overpriced.Special Features:
- good neighborhood restaurantMiswuVIPDined on 8/13/2014Return to Bridges Restaurant for a weekday dinner. The front was disorganized and slow to greet patrons. The food was delicious in good portion in a good atmosphere. Service was slow n sporadic. It should not take 5 minute for initial greeting and 15 minute for cocktail refill. Great potential, but the service is just terrible. Will not return in the near future…Special Features:
- Exciting changing menuAlvieDined on 8/12/2014Every time we dine at Bridges, the menu has exciting new dishes, prepared beautifully and served by knowledgeable wait staff. Inside can be a little noisy so outside dining is our favorite. And with our weather. . . .who could ask for more! Brunch usually will have nice live music.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Exceptional Meal at BridgesOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 8/12/2014We had a table on their beautiful patio, the service was impeccable and the food exceptional. We had the sweet potato gnocchi, caprese salad, and pork tenderloin, all of which were delicious. Their cocktails are always changing and we enjoyed some of their new additions as well. This is a very consistent restaurant that delivers 5 star food and service in Danville. Great job Bridges!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Bridges Could Be BetterNB61Dined on 8/12/2014The pros: lovely table near an open door on a beautiful day. Breeze blowing through. Very good service. Very friendly waitstaff; genuine; accommodating. The con: Curry Chicken Salad Sandwich: not enough curry flavor, had to keep adding salt for some flavor; boring french fries; does anyone taste these dishes? Food seems like an afterthought. Has been so much better.Special Features:
- Bridges - Last ChanceSamIAmDined on 8/10/2014Went to Bridges for a birthday celebration on a Sunday night and were treated to a reasonable and delicious pre-fixe menu with an assortment of well prepared choices. Highlight of the evening was attentive and energetic service we received from "Maddie" who tok care of our every whim and special request with care and humor. Last Chance refers to the last night of the life of Mrs. Doubtfire (restaurant scene filmed right here at Bridges) star Robin Williams life. Highly recommended.Special Features:

- SuperbGoodeaterDined on 8/8/2014Wonderful meal with an accessible yet varied menu. Ahi was perfectly done; the swordfish delicious. The Napa Cellars chard was fairly priced. Patio seating was delightful and our waiter was top-notch. Will go again soon.Special Features:

- DaniCaDined on 8/3/2014I loved the freshness of the food.... the Ahi poke papaya salad was really good - roasted pepper with fresh corn soup and the parmsan wild mushroom. I had the sword fish and my husband had the new york steak and had the passion fruit cheesecake which was heavenly!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- First time visit, but not last!jeweloftheEBDined on 8/3/2014We met some friends for dinner and chose the prix fixe option. We all enjoyed our entrees, especially my hanger steak.
