Took my daughter for her birthday. We had a great time; food and service excellent. Two office parties going on so was rather noisy but overall nice.

We arrived early and were seated at a quiet table inside as it was chilly outdoors. The service was polite and friendly but our server didn’t come by frequently enough so there were long waits for drinks and for ordering dessert. Everyone enjoyed their meal and had a good time. As the restaurant filled it got quite loud. I’d go back for brunch if it was a good day for patio seating, but try elsewhere for indoors.

Had a great birthday brunch. They effortlessly accommodated a party of 12 young adults. Outside patio seating was great. Only item - we brought in a cake - and were charged a plating fee of $2.50 per person. Was not aware of charge when I called in prior to making sure it was ok to bring in a cake. Should be more transparent and forthcoming about their fees.

Everything for the food was great and delicious with the exception of the special on the menu that evening which was filet and shrimp with sausage. It was an absolute big disappointment. The filet mignon was thin, pan fried, very dry and flavorless, with two very dry and bland shrimp (not large prawns) and the sausage was cut into very thin and small quarters mixed in with too many vegetables. When the waiter told us about the filet mignon and shrimp, we were expecting a nice thick, grilled to perfection with somewhat large, juicy prawns and creatively-cooked sausages. A huge disappointment for the value and for a 'special' on the menu in an upscale restaurant.

Wonderful restaurant. Great food, service, ambiance, and in a quiet setting. The free valet parking is very nice. My gin martini was perfect! It was a great Valentine's Day dinner.

Valentine’s dinner on 2/13. Food was top notch as was the service. Restaurant was animated but not excessively noisy. We were seated right away and they were sensitive to my dietary needs (lactose free). I had sea bass special and he had swordfish and we both had starter salads. Good wine selection by the glass.

We are always very satisfied with your restaurant but this time, I was shocked to find the chairs are super heavy and very, very uncomfortable .

My husband and I have birthdays two days apart and there is no better place to celebrate than Bridges! The food is exceptional (ahi tuna and a very buttery fish with capers). Dessert was delicious and their Bulleit manhattans are wonderful. It is a place where one feels that they have really been treated well

I hadn't been here in about a year and was pleasantly surprised. I think the menu is better, more choices and the specials were very creative. Three of the group ordered the reasonably priced prix fixe menu which had three courses for $29.00. All of the staff were very attentive and pleasant.

It was a great food experience. I have the Seared Tuna and wife had the Crusted Salmon. Both excellent choices. I had an old fashioned drink, that cam excellent as well. Service was a little slow. We were seated in the far end of the patio, maybe that's why but minus one star for that.
