Beautiful night on the patio with great music, not too loud. Both the halibut and sturgeon specials were off the charts! Great service all around. Perfect way to celebrate our anniversary.

Sarah was the server and was excellent! Lisa the manager always assures this restaurant is running smoothly.
We dine here more than any other local restaurant. They continue to deliver excellent service, delicious food and a 5-Star dining experience!

The service was great. Very friendly and welcoming. The kitchen on the other hand- food took forever to come out, our server was continuously apologizing. When our courses finally came they were bland and seemed to have been sitting for a long time.
Would not dine here again
Was a disappointment for an anniversary dinner.

I recently had a monthly group dinner and also celebrated an early birthday dinner with friends at Bridges. We try to go to a new restaurant every month. The restaurant was quiet, not sure if it was because a lot of customers were seated outside on the patio or that it was a Thursday night. Everyone commented that the service and food was excellent.

Stars would be closer to 3.7. Waiter personality was great but wine menu knowledge lacking. Food was meh. Pork chop was not flavorful. Swordfish was decent but not killer.
Outdoor ambiance quite pleasant with a wonderful live singer.
For the money, expected a little more in value. Will go back maybe in the future; worth a second look.

Sat outside and table next to us was a party of approx six who were quite loud. Was distracting until music started which helped overcome the noise of that family. Overall experience was great. Service was very good. Food was just ok. Had the swordfish and it was served a little cool for my liking. We still like the place and will return but feel it is a little pricey for the quality of the food.

Ordered the Vietnamese por and shrimp appetizer, it was dry and lacked pizzas. The wines were $15 per glass. The grilled swordfish was good as was the kale Caesar salad. The dessert was a caramel créeme brûlée which was good, the double espresso had a nice aroma.

Th reputation of Bridges exceeds the experience. Will not return.

We went to Bridges to celebrate our anniversary. I had never been, but had heard great things. While initially the service was good, things became disappointing when our main meals arrived. My salmon was quite raw and my son's tuna did not taste fresh at all. The two other meals, Halibut and Ribeye, were quite good. Even though I immediately sent my plate back, my new fish plate was not returned until everyone else had finished their food. To his credit, our server, did not charge me for my plate. I think the problem was in the kitchen.. Not sure I'll return.

As usual our food was excellent! But the whole dining experience was marred by our waiter. He pretty much did disappearing acts throughout and seemed terribly bored. This is the first time we have had this happen and usually have a wonderful meal at Bridges.

Everything was decent/fair. However, I experienced sniffling, sneezing, allergy attacks throughout dinner from sitting near the dusty window ledges. Not quite what I had in mind dining at the restaurant made famous by the movie, Mrs. Doubtfire. I had hoped for exceptional cleanliness and something at least equivalent to (in food deliciousness and confidently excellent service) my favorite Danville spot - The Peasant & the Pear. The only dish that tasted really good here at Bridges was their Porcini Mushroom Ravioli. Will not return here for dinner but possibly for their happy hour/bar food, which seemed to be popular judging from everyone outside on the patio area.

We asked for a quiet table, and they accommodated.
We both ordered the Mexican Prawns.
As usual, they were excellent.
Glasses of Trig Merlot were very good.
Friday night is our dinner date night -
we often dine at Bridges.

Thank you to Bridges, the staff and our waiter, Ben, for making our anniversary very special. We enjoyed a bottle of champagne, a wonderful charcuterie/cheese plate, the soup was excellent and our entrees were amazing. They even surprised us with a small dessert for our special occasion. Again thank you so much. We plan on returning soon.

Our dinner last Saturday evening was one of the best that we have ever enjoyed at Bridges. There were four of us, and each of our meals was excellent. Our server was charming - even though she was very, very busy. It was a truly enjoyable evening out with friends, thanks to Bridges.

Inside seating area was very very loud. The outside area with musical entertainment seemed nicer. Our only problem was that we were told we would be charged extra for a substitution of a vegetable with an entree. Unusual rigidity for a California restaurant.

Situated in the heart of Danville's quaint shopping district Bridges did not disappoint even with my higher expectations. Wonderful wine selection. Our wait person was friendly and made us felt unhurried. Food presentation was good and the food taste was to the T. Great overall visit despite getting an unsigned handwritten nastygram by someone who decided where I parked wasnt to their liking despite no signage to the contrary. I parked in the designated Bridges lot. At least they had good diction and penmanship skills!
