Bridgewater Grill @ The Golden Hotel Ratings and Reviews
What a disappointment. The ambience inside is poor. An empty salad bar and a few tables. Service was terribly slow. My dinner was cold. My son's steak had to be sent back, the other one was fine, hamburger was tasty. The average meals and very very poor service means I will never return. And it's a shame as it has a lot of promise
The service was very good. The food was up and down. An appetizer that was described as calamari and Hatch chilies was calamari and chunks of red bell pepper. That was accompanied by uninspiring tartar and cocktail sauces. I found that just squeezing the included lime and orange wedges produced the best results. The "Caesar" salad was some very nice, fresh, and crisp romaine hearts laid on a plate with sparse shavings of asiago, a filet of anchovy, and the dressing poured over all. It was a truly pathetic and inept presentation. The entree, Bison meatloaf was flavorful, served over whipped Yukon potatoes with green beans and a nice jus.
I would eat there again, but only after careful questioning about the specifics of meal preparation.
Seating on the porch is beautiful. It is covered with a great view of the water. Food is good, and very ample. The only complaint I heard was it was just too much to eat. Service is great and they do take reservations which is a plus for us. Would highly recommend.
Our waiter ruined our meal. Very inattentive throughout. He spent most of his time in the back and when he was out, never looked around. We ordered our tenderloin rare to medium rare. It cam out medium. Finally the waiter came over to check on our meal. I showed him how the meat was cooked. His response... "Bummer" and he walked away.
After this experience, I am walking away!!
We had dinner with my mother after a program at Green Auditorium in the School of Mines. We appreciated a quiet table in the dining room...no loud music and very quiet even when almost full. So nice and unusual to be able to talk and listen while dining. Very good food, although I wish the server had asked how we wanted the meat on our salads cooked...was a bit underdone. My husband's fillet was excellent.
Good food, but nothing special unless you can sit outside overlooking the river. We requested outside seating in our reservation and when we got there we were told we would have to wait 20 minutes. We decided to sit inside, which just turned it into a regular hotel restaurant.
Having just moved to Golden a few months ago, we met a very friendly local on the Bridgewater's bridge who recommended the restaurant to us in no uncertain terms. In particular, she raved about the salmon sandwich, which she told us was delicious. She was not wrong. We have now been to the Bridgewater three times, and I have yet to order anything else. I have been told that other dishes are quite good but can't speak from first-hand experience. I can say that the outdoor seating is very pleasant and that the service has always been quite good: friendly, attentive, and efficient. It goes without saying that we will be returning. Can't guarantee that I will be exploring the menu much further, however.
We were a party of 8 and each person received individual attention and great service. One of us had a dietary requirement and the chef came out personally to discuss it -- so it was resolved in a very tasty way. Highly recommend this place. If you can, sit out on the veranda by the stream with the views of the mesa and the mountain.
On a date with my lovely girlfriend. Wait staff confused about our booking we made. Refused a drink without an American ID (I am Australian), stone cold sober, was told then told there was no mint for the mojito my girlfriend ordered, we nearly just left. Food was basic, two sets of music playing over speakers, service was nothing special. I have worked in hospitality before and understand sometimes venues can just have an off night but we couldn't wait to leave.
Poor service. Waited over 10 minutes for wait person to come to the table to take first drink order. We were on the patio area, with only one other table having guests - 2. As this was a birthday dinner, birthday person got a small free dessert - nice, but even though others in the party wanted to order dessert for themselves, server simply walked away. Had to wait another 5 minutes or so before she returned and we could order. One party member had the salmon, thought it was the best he'd ever had, other members seemed to like the food, had no complaints. I had the lamb burger, thought it was just mediocre. I like the setting by the creek in Golden, but I wouldn't recommend it because of the reasons already mentioned.
I wanted to go for the outside, river front dining area however we spent over 70.00 for breakfast for four, that was equal in taste and quality to a Denny's or the like. One person in our party got the buffet after a heavy sales pitch from the server. Note: do not order it unless you go check it out first. For 18.00 per person you would expect more than the basic Costco quality pastries, eggs, bacon, fruit, potatoes...the server kept insisting it was the "best deal" in part because it included coffee. What!? Usually a bit higher end hotel has good coffee, not here. The coffee was absolutely horrible. The coffee portion of our bill was 14.00 . I would gladly pay for excellent coffee but this was hard to choke down. I kept asking for more cream just so I could get some caffeine in me without gagging on the coffee!! For the rest of us who did not get the buffet, I will say the portions were large enough to even share, but not good enough to care about eating. Very low quality ingredients, inconsistent portions from one plate to the next, sloppy plating, and everything but the bacon was all very bland and flavorless. The green chile is good, and has won at the local chile cook off so I ordered a side to dump on the rest of my meal so it was palatable.
A very disappointing and expensive mistake!
Our experience at the Bridgewater Grill was fair. The food was not a good value. I ordered a beet salad that was 75% spinach with 6 thin slices of beets placed on top. The salad was tasty and large, but was not a good value for the cost. The server was nice but disappeared for about 20 minutes and we had to flag someone down for the check. Looking over the menu, there were many items I wanted to try however they seemed overpriced. The deck is nice and the ambiance can't be beat.
I found the prices way out of line, too high for the value. A simple iceberg wedge with toppings was poorly presented, not crisp, soggy with goop. A lunch for 2 came in at $ 70 with no alcohol. Why would we return? Most irritating of all is that your chairs are too low for the height of the tables and compromises enjoyment. Staff was kind enough to find me a pillow, yet I am an average size female. It just was not a pleasant dining experience.
The indoor view is the mesa and the quaint main street. The veranda view is the mountain and the creek. The food is really tasty, and the service is always friendly and prompt. The prices are reasonable. What's not to like? It's in a cool hotel with western décor. Would recommend it to anyone.
Came back with fond memories of my first time at the Bridgewater Grille, left with nothing but bad things to say this time. Where to start? The waitress that didn't tell us about the evening's specials because she said there were none (the waiter from another table said there were)...the almost one hour delay to receive our entrees after the salads were served, only to have the waitress blame it on the "new an inexperienced Sunday crew" AND an offer of a FREE hot tea or coffee with our meal for the inconvenience. Really???
But, perhaps the icing on the cake was the table next to us. They were a large group celebrating a birthday. Harmless enough, they brought their own cake. But when the wait staff brought out plates and bowls and utensils so these heathens could serve their own ice cream while other paying guests waited to have their orders taken and served, just hit me the wrong way.
Where was management in all of this?
By the way, our food was over cooked and cold. Never again.
