Bridge Street Bistrot & Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews
I brought my husband for a Valentine celebration dinner. The service was excellent, and my baked Brie was wonderful. My husband had the charcuterie and he said it was okay. I then was excited to have the Coquilles St. Jacques, until it arrived. The scallops did not have the muscle removed on either one and the shrimp were a little overdone. It and my husband’s Cassoulet were just okay. He said the meat in his dish were good, but the rest of it was just okay. The desserts were excellent! Overall the meal was fair, and when people are paying a lot for a special meal out, it should be better than just okay.
My sisters, parents and I had a rare and wonderful dinner together! The food is divine, and can't wait to go back again. The only reason for the moderate noise level comment is that there was a table of fourteen sharing the space, so it did get a little loud during our conversations, but not unmanageable. This restaurant is a New Favorite!
If you find yourself in Portsmouth, NH, do yourself a favor and check this place out. It has a charming, cozy atmosphereand a friendly, informed waitstaff. Make a reseration so as not to be turned away.
Prices are super reasonableand the food is consistently delicious. They have a decent wine list and truly yummy desserts.
We were just there Saturday night and are already looking forward to our next visit.
We are frequent diners at the Bridge Street Bistrot. The food, ambiance and service are always exquisite. There is also a very inventive wine list. Bridge Street Bistrot is great for a night out, a special occasion or a gathering with friends. It is one of our favorite places in Portsmouth!
We had a late addition to our party and we were quickly accommodated. The food was absolutely delicious, the cocktails perfect and the wine selection superb! As always, this fit for foodies, neighborhood gem pleased all of our diners and the ambiance was perfect for a cold winter evening celebration seated near the cozy wood stove. The service was excellent, our every need anticipated but never rushed. This is our favorite spot in Portsmouth and with all the other fantastic options, that is quite an achievement!!
The service was fantastic very knowledgeable about the menu and very attentive to our needs. The food was amazing lots of great option. Often there's one or two things on the menu I am willing to order I would order over half of the menu happily can't wait to go back and try my second top choices.
