I love bridges. The patio experience is weird now because of the patricians put in place due to Covid but this is temporary. In normal times is nice.
The food could be better.
Hopefully, they will work on the food quality also.
Service was fine.

A friend’s luncheon of three was the first time together since last December. The food was outstanding, the service prompt and friendly, the ambience quiet, sheltered and heated. Above all, we felt safe with the precautions that the restaurant provided.

Considering we’re in COVID lockdown, the outdoor dining experience was fine with space heaters to ease the chill. Our server was extraordinary, all of the dishes were well prepared and presented.

The staff here is so accommodating and kind. We receive great service every time we’ve visited during COVID-19. The food is delicious. The bourbon salmon is a family favorite. Desserts are worth saving room for.

The evening was perfect. Social distancing outside on a chilly evening with two heat lamps to keep us warm. Our waiter Chris was attentive, helpful, and a lot of fun!
Thanks Bridges! Always a safe and delicious choice.

It was my birthday. I’m sensitive to cold and wore long underwear and a down vest. It was like walking into a meat locker. Wind seeping in between the windows and gusting through the door. The server said the heat was as high as it could go. I waited for my food with hands in my vest, five napkins on my legs and a friend’s scarf on my head. The food was good but I couldn’t finish because of the cold. I got a delicious cupcake that was the highlight of the meal, but not enough to overcome the overall misery of the experience. Bridges need to do some weatherstripping and upgrade its heating. I always enjoy Danville outings but will choose other venues for now.

Experience was good. Tough to make it great during these times of COVID but they work hard to make it work with a cold night outside. Can't be helped.

Cocktails were great but entree's fell a little short this time from the past experienes.

The restaurant was great in making us feel safe and secure in regard to the pandemic.
The staff was very attentive, professional and took care to make sure the food, table etc was handled appropriately re. Covid. Our table was set apart from others. Our food was ok. My prawns were a bit overcooked but edible.

For some reason, we had not eaten dinner at Bridges for years. We had a great dinner (I had the Rib Eye special which was excellent), great service, Bridges does an excellent job with Social Distancing and when it got a little chilly, the heat lamps really help. Bridges is back in our dinner rotation.

The service was excellent, food fresh, very good quality and well prepared.

My companion and I shared the sushito peppers to start. They were hot - but very tasty! Bread delivered on request. Water glasses were promptly filled. I started with a cocktail and then a glass of wine with dinner. Waiter did not know much about wine (self confessed) so he offered me a taste. I had the tuna that we excellent and yummy rice (black rice, cannot remember the name, but nutty tasting. Also had pineapple and some other tasty treats in it.) My companion had the steak, cooked perfectly. He asked to substitute fries for the mashed potatoes but their fryer was broken. I ate his broccolini and it was yummy and cooked crisp. The tables were at an appropriate distance for COVID. All staff wore masks and cleaned tables and areas etc. I asked for to go boxes and they were promptly delivered and self serve to put our leftovers in the box (COVID precautions). Heater was turned and and brought closer to table at my request. I have not been to Bridges for a while but I thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The service was excellent, food fresh, very good quality and well prepared.

Loved their Ahi tuna fish dish with that crunchy nutty forbidden rice dashed with spicy pineapple coulis. Service excellent with very polite and attentive Erin. Always a delight at Bridges with its indoor ambiance where we sat near the patio.

First time here. The food was wonderful. The service was great. We are outside which was nice and it was very warm because they have heaters. I had the Tuna and my wife had the Filet Mignon. We were very pleased and look forward to returning.
