    The chicken Marsala was hands down the best I have ever had. I will definitely be ordering this again. We have dined at Bridge Street Bistro and it is one of our favorites on AMI.

    As loyal & steady customers, very disappointed in Thanksgiving buffet. No pasta stations or carving station except prime rib & no ham station, etc. as noted in menu for that buffet. Also no bread was served & this buffet overpriced. Would have gone to less expensive restaurant for better meal.

    We came here to celebrate our friends 70th birthday. The food was outstanding! The bridge inn bistro never fails to disappoint in their flavors and quality of food. The setting was equally as impressive. The only thing that let this place down was our server Michael. We live local but are originally from England. We asked for bread and was told it was not ready but none was forth coming even after that. We asked the hostess sometime after our appetizers arrived and she brought some out straight away. There were hardly any tables being used as they were quiet while we were there. When are drinks were brought no empty glasses where taken. We had to put them on the empty table next to us. It seemed an inconvenience for Michael to move around the round table to serve us or clear plates as we handed them to and from him. There were only 3 desserts which we thought was strange as Michael said they were so busy getting ready for a busy night ahead. We had dined at 5pm to catch the sunset. When the key lime pie and two ice creams did not arrive after sometime a member of the party went to the restroom to see our server polishing glasses and bustling himself with other chores. We felt the later prospect of many customers was more appealing then a table of four celebrating their friends 70th birthday. As locals we try to use this place as a special occasion and try to visit as often as possible when ever friends and family are visiting. Michael was a bit more jolly when presenting and collecting our check. Perhaps he should have thought about his whole service and not just the end. We felt like an inconvenience. We watched with envy as bright smiles and laughter came from the other section with a server we would have loved to have had for our celebration. We will always come here because of the food and setting it is amazing but sadly tonight not the service which for a once in a lifetime moment with friends left us pretty sad with the experience.

    Bridge Street BistroResponded on November 28, 2022I am sorry to hear about your experience. We are thrilled that you enjoy dining with us, and we will work towards getting a more consistent service experience for everyone!

    Blue cheese salad was amazing. The risotto was terrible, unfortunately. It was completely bland, tasted like there was no seasoning. The service was disappointing. Server was very slow, and we could see her chatting inside with other servers while we waited. It wasn’t busy, so I am not sure what the delay was. Also had to ask 3 times for a napkin.

    We must have caught a really bad night as we chose this restaurant based on good reviews. The food had NO seasoning. We had to salt our food at the table for the first time in years! The grouper was just okay, as was the snapper. Scallops were good. Risotto tasted like rice with cheese..gummy. No bacon for the wedge salad, and no offer to reduce the price. Service was really slow and very inattentive, but the servers were nice and friendly, which helped. Maybe the place is understaffed like most other places. I HATE giving restaurants bad reviews, but I also hate spending $60-70 per person for mediocrity. I hope they get it together.

    Bridge Street Bistro not as good as it used to be. We were 3 diners. One of was quite satisfied with a Spanish Seafood Stew. My wife was just OK with grouper, broccoli was supposed to have a glaze, it did not. Our guest had a very small piece of mahi-mahi, not enough for an entre portion. Her risotto was lukewarm.

    Reservation was for 6:30 and we arrived a few minutes early and were promptly seated outside on the patio overlooking the beautiful sunset. Server arrived quickly and took our order. Then we waited. 40 minutes later we were notified that the pantry was backed up and the salad would be out shortly. About 20 min later the meal arrived. The restaurant was over half empty, so not sure why so long of a wait. Ordered the 8oz filet, and it looked more like 5oz when it arrived. Asparagus was extra thin and over cooked. Risotto was hard and somewhat crunchy. We enjoyed the view and each other, and our server was polite and attentive, but we would not go back and pay top dollar for mediocre food.

    Dinner with a view with out-of-town friends! The Bistro was very accommodating when we requested an outside table overlooking the Gulf. It’s not perfect to have a somewhat busy street between the restaurant and the beach but there’s still a great view from the 3rd floor space. Classy but not stuffy, great craft cocktails and wine list, and a solid menu with something for everyone. Enjoy!

    We had to wait for our table and had a great experience with the bartender. We should have made the decision then to stay with him for our dinner. It took forever for our server to come to the table and then he left and did not see him for a long time. Thankfully, the hostess took our order but never asked us how we wanted our fish. When the dinners finally arrived, the salmon was so salted we sent it back. My mahi was good, my husband just shared mine. It took so long for another salmon dish to come out, we just sent it back. I was never asked if I wanted another glass of wine, I needed to flag the bartender down for one. We are not tourists, we are snow birds and have lived here in the winter for 13 years, and it might be a while to come back, except for a drink with the bartender.

    The service was horrible. The hostess sat us and then we waited around 20 minutes. The hostess then came back and took our drink order but didn’t want to take our food order. Our drinks arrived and we waited another 15-20 minutes. The hostess then came over and took our food order. Our soup and oysters arrived at the same time. The oysters were not shucker from the shell and felt somewhat frozen instead of fresh. Another 20 minutes and our server finally arrived to us apologizing for the delay and that he was sorry but forgot to put our entrees in and that it would be another wait, but said our next drinks were on him. We had already ordered a bottle of wine. So no more drinks were actually needed. The restaurant was not busy and the server blamed it on being closed for a couple of days due to the hurricane. I’m sorry but no service is this horrible due to not working a couple of days. It’s a beautiful restaurant with a spectacular view, but if you are dining here make sure you don’t go hungry because you may never get your food.
