Beautiful place with best view of sunset. The bartender, i didn't catch her name she was blond with a long braid, was wonderful. She made great drinks and pleasant converstion and was ready with our check when our table was ready. The food was great, we had lobster dog and delicious seafood pasta. I strongly recommend this place.

Typical beach town restaurant trying to be upscale but not making it . Risotto was cooked incorrectly it was a dry paste. Fish was fresh but blandly cooked.

In a beach town, it is nice to find a place that takes reservations and provides parking.

There were only two waiters for the entire restaurant and no one bussing tables to help them. Our waitress was as attentive as she could be but was clearly overwhelmed. Ordered Albariño white wine which was served to us warm. Waitress took the wine off the bill but clearly something was wrong. Two dishes, grouper and shrimp were cooked fine but pecan crusted salmon was very overcooked, tough and dry. Sunset views and cocktails were great.

Dylan was a wonderful server and his food advice was right on point. we came earlier than our reservation time but were seated right away. From where we were seated to our apps to our dessert everything was better than I hoped for. Highly recommend this establishment .

The restaurant has a fantastic view with great food and service. I appreciate the bar drinks being full sized. We hoped to catch the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico but the rain continued until after sunset. Parking is simple with a reservation. The menu is somewhat limited but offers a variety to satisfy most guests. Give it a try while visiting Bradenton Beach.

TERRIBLE SERVICE! Food came cold but we dare complain for fear it would never come back. Dining room is small and crowded.. so if you have any covid concerns this is not your place. That being said , the view was beautiful.
We saw a beautiful sunset. If dining and watching the sunset is your goal, request the outdoor balcony. You will have all the time in the world to enjoy the view, since the wait staff will not return with food and drink.

The food was outstanding! As residents of Michigan, I have been coming to this part of Florida for 40 years. Never had I heard of this place. We booked a reservation on a whim. It will definitely be our go to every time we are here! Thanks for amazing drinks and dinner.

Would love to have been able to sit by the window, no other table was seated at 5:15 reservation however they said they could not seat us there. Oysters tasted like they had been opened and waiting in refrigerator not freshly shucked. We understand that they were very short staffed in the kitchen. Our drinks were great and the meals were wonderful.

Service was not up to the usual, our waitress although very nice was new I believe. I didn’t see the several men who usually wait on us. Our entrees came before we had finished our first course, the first course plates were not taken away, we ordered 2 glasses of wine and didn’t get them until we finished our entrees! It was a Saturday and a wedding reception but not up to your standard. Hope this helps, Susan

This was our first visit to Bridge Street Bistro and it won't be our last. We enjoyed the food, ambiance and beautiful sunset from our table. We had our family with us and everyone enjoyed their dinner. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the grouper was done just the way I like it. My grandson ordered the steak burger and was disappointed to see an onion jam on top. He knows to order it plain the next time and just add what he wants on it. There was a good selection of wines and some fancy cocktails, and, of course, Shirley temples for the kids. It's a nice place to celebrate a special occasion or just enjoy the view.

Food was just average, a chicken dish and grouper dinner. We know of 3-4 other local restaurants priced in this category that we will visit before coming back. The view upstairs is awesome. Too bad that the menu and food quality doesn’t match it.

Bridge Street is a very vibrant area. Crowded in season. The Bistro is hidden away on third floor, a quiet place, to get away from crowds. The menu is more upscale, but compares with Blue Marlin. The grouper was fine as were the curry mussels. They did not have a fish of the day nor did they have the creme brulee on this Saturday night. Service was great...Michael was on his game. Had a pre dinner drink at Bridge Tender Tiki Bar. Nice evening.

Took 1.5 hours to get food, it came out cold and overcooked and one dish had 2 strands of hair in it. It was way overpriced too. Building is old and loud, parking terrible, etc. Save your time and money.

Please note this review is SOLEY on attempt to done. Our reservation was for 630 and we had asked to be seated outside in the reservation made through open table. Upon arrival we were told no tables were available on the desk but they could accommodate us close to a window. We were asked to 'sanitize' our hands with the provided purell. When we were taken to our table, it was in the middle of the restaurant with tables crowded around. We did not feel comfortable and let the hostess know we would be leaving. For the price point I would have expected better service and or solutions.

First time there. Indoors, everything looked a bit shabby - maybe outdoors too, but the upstairs deck was fab. Beautiful breeze off the ocean, and gorgeous sunset. Staff were all very good/attentive and the food was amazing. We didn't really expect the food to be great, but we're foodies from Chicago and all four of us loved our meals. We all had steaks, and my filet is the best I've tasted among all the restaurants we've visited down here. Kudos to whomever was cooking meats that night (3/14/21).
Thx for a great evening.
