  • Disappointing
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 3/9/2014
    The view and ambiance were quite nice and it was very quiet on a Sunday evening. The food, the most important thing for me, was average at best and considering the high prices, the food should be well above average. The menu has not changed in years and perhaps the chefs are getting bored with the preparations because the lack of passion was apparent in the finished dishes. We shared 4 appetizers/small plates: Seared Scallops, Eggplant Stacks, Gnocchi and Crab Cakes. The scallops were burnt on on the bottom side and looked like they were purposely placed burnt side down because the chef knew that they were burnt, gnocchi too gummy, eggplant blah and crab cakes bland.

    We had an issue with waiting almost an hour for an appetizer but the owner quickly rectified the situation as soon as he was informed. The remainder of our meal was excellent. We have eaten here before and will definitely return! It is one of our favorites.

    If you like wood grilled calamari, they have an excellent appetizer. I ordered the tuna stake and it was over cooked but I did not complain. I just would have preferred it medium rare. The lobster bisque is amazing and the eggplant stack is also a favorite of mine. Ask for a table by the window. The view is even better from the second floor.

    Our party of 3 enjoyed the oysters on the half shell appetizer. We paid $1.50 each extra for gorgonzola on our salad and there was only a tiny bit of cheese on each plate. The waitress came out with more cheese after my husband had already finished his salad. I had the blue crab ravioli with shrimp, which was good. My husband and mother had the veal piccata, and both said that their veal was tough and overcooked and too salty. We ordered desserts, but beware, the dessert menu doesn't have prices. The dessert sampler is large and runs $14. Taste is mediocre. My husband's profiteroles were $9 and large, but seemed to be filled with sorbet, which he didn't like. It was a busy night and service was very slow. Not an exciting meal.

    With all entrees ranging in the mid twenties it only makes it more difficult to decide what you are in the mood for! The menu is perfect with lots of great choices. My wife had the veal, it was a little drowned in sauce but very good nonetheless. I had a seafood special including crab stuffed pasta and scallops, which was very good. We will have to go back for the dessert!

    My husband and I frequent this restaurant 8-10 times annually. We might make it more often. The service is always friendly and quick. It starts with the Host and Hostess - true professionals. We shared the delicious fried clam appetizer, the special salad (I want another right now), I had the paella special and he had the sirloin. All were excellent. I couldn't eat my main course after the apps, so I brought it home and we had it for lunch the day after. The open kitchen adds warmth and heat - which is welcome this Winter. Our cocktails were also excellent. We'd say this is a must if you haven't been.

    I am a creature of habit when dining at Bridgeman's and, with rare exception, ALWAYS order the pan seared cod...it is a unique and delightful treatment of a wonderful local fish. This particular Saturday night at 7:30, the place was jammed but we weren't in a hurry and were not disappointed.

    Everytime I go to Bridgeman's I am not disappointed. The staff and service very friendly. Dined here on a Sat night with my husband and 11 yr old. The kids menu nothing special - would like to see some healthier options, but that's ok. Ordered the house salad, caesar salad, salmon, mashed potatoes, chicken saltimboca and seafood fra diablo. All were excellent. Salads were fresh and flavorful. Salmon was cooked just right, chicken was tender and roasted veggies delicious. Husband loved the spicy seafood, right spice to taste all the seafood. Not a fan of the bok choy w/ ginger sauce - was somewhat slimy tasting and oily. bread & olive oil w/ olives tasty, a perfect start. Recommend! Place got a bit loud nearing 7pm though.

    I got the special which was jumbo shrimp and scallops in a lobster cream sauce with lobster ravioli. It was delicious and the amount of food was just right. You get 5 good size ravioli, 3 shrimp and 2 scallops. For $34 I thought they should have added another scallop. The sangria is excellent as well. Look forward to going back in the summer to eat outside.

    Bridgeman's never fails to deliver. The chef, John's, travels to Italy are evident in the most authentic presentation of the calamari that my husband has ever eaten. We had lovely cocktails and wine, one of the staff brought us some extra olives, the meals were fantastic, and the after dinner drinks were so warm and a beautiful finish to a perfect meal. The hosts are so accommodating, and it always feels like such a special night out when we head to Bridgeman's. I have been to many 4 star restaurants in Boston and Hull is so lucky to have such a fabulous little gem within walking distance. My necklace broke, spilling crystals all over the floor, and they helped us collect them. We even got a call the next day telling us they found the rest!

    We are return customers to Bridgeman's, so right away, it says we enjoy it. We were met immediately by a pleasant hostess and given choice of a table. Our server was knowledgeable, patient, and friendly. Food was overall quite good. Fish was delicious and cooked as requested, but I did think the shredded beets lacked flavor. I guess because it is winter, it was fairly quiet. Great for conversation! A bit pricey, but a very enjoyable dining experience.

    The menu was primarily seafood in nature (as you would expect along the beach) but it still offered some wonderful choices. The food was exquisite! The wait staff were very attentive, friendly and courteous. The wine list was a bit overwhelming. I did enjoy the option of half bottles so you don't get carried away. Our glasses were never empty. We were never rushed-there was time to savor and enjoy each course of our meal. My only regret was not saving room for dessert.
