    food was good and filets cooked to what was asked, service could be better but this also could be server dependent. Other than filets food was good but average.

    The setting has a lot going for it but we were greeted by dingy, dirty dining chairs (with absolutely no padding). Kinda sets the evening off on a bad note. Grouper was thick and dry, stuffed shrimp tasteless with dry crab stuffing. Risotto lukewarm and gummy. Just not top notch as we expected. Was hoping for better.

    The Bartender was RUDE! She needs coaching in customer service and how to manage her aggressive attitude. We were shocked at how she basically told us to go to the back of the line for drinks when just waiting for our table. Everyone else was great - but the bartender on 5/3/24 at 7:00 PM was a fail. We both work in the customer service industry and were shocked at her demeanor. The price for our dinner did not match the experience.
    Bridge Street BistroResponded on May 6, 2024
    Hello! I am so sorry to hear that your experience with our bartender was less than exemplary! We will converse on all factors relayed and make every effort for improvements. She normally receives all five star ratings so perhaps she was not at her best this day. I will definitely make mention of the issue.

    Food was delicious - Pecan Crusted Grouper & Ginger Sesame Seed Mahi Mahi. Would have gotten a 5 star rating if they had brought out both dinners at the same time. My wife's Mahi Mahi waited on a tray in the dinning room until my Grouper caught up about 5-8 minutes. Better planning in the kitchen would have helped here. The Grouper was hot, but the Mahi Mahi was cold. Service was excellant both hostess and waiter. THANK YOU!

    It was a busy Saturday night. There was live music downstairs. We had a great table with a view of the gulf overlooking the busy main center of this cute little area so it wasn't a quiet dinner - but we weren't looking for a quiet dinner - we were on vacation! And a lot of other people were partying so when 2 of our 4 dinners didnt come out correctly we really didn't complain too much. Our server was doing her utmost to make an enjoyable night for everyone upstairs so we couldn't fault her. She comp'd 2 desserts. Part of the problem with the restaurant is that it the kitchen is on the ground floor and we were on the 2nd floor so the food has to be carried by the servers up 2 flights of stairs. Tough job!! I really think a good suggestion would be that the food be covered for the trip up the 2 flights of stairs.

    Mediocre experience. Bartender was great and fast. The server was not, unfortunately. As a group of 6, 3 meals were good. 2 of the meals were cold. And the chicken parm and pasta was rough for my friend to eat. It literally tasted v weird. Overall, they probs shouldn’t be serving past 9 bc everything around closes at 10

    Really great food, service and amazing view on the balcony. Perfect sunset location and we enjoyed the live music from below. We enjoyed the fish dip and tuna tartare appetizers, Blackened Grouper, crab stuffed shrimp, seafood Cobb and fish & chips. Everything was amazing. This restaurant by far is one of the best on the island and appropriately priced unlike some others that are obscenely overpriced. Bridge Street Bistro never disappoints!

    We have come here almost every year as long as I can remember to have a nice last dinner and sunset before heading home. And it has been a great experience always until last night. Maybe it was an off night for them. But I can not recommend it and it saddens me.

    We’ve come here annually for several years but found this year to be disappointing. Service was very slow (asked four times for bread, took a long time for each round of drinks, appetizer plates were not cleared by the time entrees arrived). Our food was average with nobody in our party of six finding much remarkable about it. The wine list has gone downhill as well. We probably won’t be back next year.

    I'm so sorry to hear that this visit didn't match your previous years! I would love the opportunity to make it up to you.

    Chicken parm was dry and pasta bland. Salmon was good.
