Great service, food, ambiance. Bar tenders know how to mix drinks well.

My dish was not good, and I barely ate it. The other members of the party loved their food, so that's great! Ambience was lovely. Our server was suuuuper slow despite hardly anyone being there. I actually saw the bartender pour my wine at the bar and should have just taken it, instead of waiting 15 minutes for it to be brought to me. Our dishes didn't come until 40 minutes after ordering, and when I asked for a dessert menu, the waiter said "oh right, we have a birthday here" 🤦🏼‍♀️. Then my husband was brought his stale birthday cupcake before anyone even got to order their dessert (we abandoned the dessert ordering idea after that).

Overall, I'm looking forward to trying the other charming looking restaurants in the area.

Wonderful lunch as always in a beautiful outside setting. Great choices although I always select the grilled shrimp and sesame noodle salad.

We went for Easter dinner and found a fixed menu that covered brunch and dinner. So limited menu which was ok. However I would say the appetizers were very good as were the desserts. However the entrees we mediocre at best. I got the chicken 2 ways, which included a confit leg and what appeared to be a roasted breast. It came with roasted potatoes with parsnips and fennel. The hash mixed was dry and flavorless. The chicken skin was rubbery and the breast was under cooked. My son had the lamb which was very gamey- and my husband got the fish, which was again - ok. Quite expensive to boot. So would not recommend this place.

Easter Brunch for the 3 of us. Patio was lovely & we were fortunate enough to be seated in our own little tented area.
Menu selections were great & offered something for everyone.
Spring Leek & Parsnip soup, truffle mushroom conserva in puff pastry were excellent starters & the chicken 2 ways + the pan roasted Fijian mahi mahi were cooked to perfection. We all couldn't resist the strawberry chiffon layer cake (light & fluffy) to end our dining experience.
Have always had a superb meal here & they are exceptionally good at holiday menus.
We were all so thankful to be able to dine outside during this difficult period in all our lives.
Thanks Bridges, see you soon!

Food was good.

Service lacking. More training needed, more courtesy, friendliness needed. At times it felt that things were kind of thrown on the table, even making a banging sound.

Lastly, restaurant needs an update. Looking old and, somewhat dingy.

Would, only, recommend the food at this time.

Safety protocols in place and wonderful dining experience. The outdoor setting during COVID was still excellent, shade and heaters for the mild chill. Great day to spend a birthday and Easter Sunday.

Easter brunch. Was very nice, outside, clean and COVID friendly. Food was good but a very limited menu a little more variety would have been nice. Service was impeccable.

Food was really good--amazing--the appetizers: lettuce cups and the poke---the steak dinner and the mexican thai prawns were excellent--service was slow that Sat. night and there was a large loud group
but have been there many times and still love it and it's one of our top places to dine in Danville.

Bridges has a regular Fav. But the wait to get out meals has been too long a wait. This was both the case for dinner and lunch. Seems like their kitchen is overwhelmed if they are also supporting or cooking for their wine bar next door. 30 minutes for burgers is too long. If it happens again I’ll be looking for another regular place.

We went there for our 10th anniversary. It was the first time after pandemic hit to sit inside a restaurant. The food and service were amazing. The ambience was nice and quiet. The only problem were the open doors (because outdoor seating) and that was bringing in some chilly air.
