Very comfortable & casual vibe with Danville charm. The food is good, but not pretentious. Menu is appropriately varied, but I'd definitely try the Asian noodle shrimp salad which was DELICIOUS. The quinoa power bowl salad with steak just didn't have enough flavor, with shredded brussel sprouts delivering a bitter taste without a better dressing. However, the steak was cooked perfectly and was REALLY tender. Will DEFINITELY be returning to this hidden gem in quaint downtown Danville.
We have out of town family who come to visit and they always want to go to Bridges. The food is delicious, serving staff friendly and helpful. You can count on a delicious meal. They are consistently fantastic.
Always great atmosphere, server was very pleasant and friendly. Food was great and restaurant was nice and clean. Second time here and will be back.
It was my birthday. We were seated and waiter took our order. After that, our waiter never came by to check on us.
The food and service were both excellent! What was really impressive was the car valet saw had our car in front with seat heaters on when we got to the front door. My daughter was on crutches, and it was so kind of him to have the car THERE before we even presented the ticket!
Food & drinks were refreshing! Would return again!
As always Bridges was wonderful!
Brian our waiter was fabulous!!
We were celebrating a birthday which
Was great fun!
First visit to Bridges and there will be more in the future. Bridges is gem conveniently located in downtown Danville. Parking isn't a problem, ambience is subdued and even romantic. We had swordfish which was perfectly prepared and presented and the waitress suggested a white wine that went well with dinner. Dessert was an outstanding creme brulee done just right. My only complaint is the noise level in the dining room which interfered with conversation at times. The restaurant was packed on this Saturday evening with customers enjoying the food and ambience.
Had a sea bass that was cooked to perfection on a bed of quinces, absolutely delightful
It has been over 25 years since we have dined at Bridges - which was during the era of when original owner Art Bridges owned it and when that famous scene from Mrs. Doubtfire (Robin Williams) was filmed in the restaurant. We now live in Southern Orange County, CA, and when we wanted to get together with some old friends, this was our mutual choice. All four of us were extremely pleased with our meals, the service, and the ambiance. I had the Portobello Mushroom Raviolis and they were truly outstanding! Close to, if not the best I've ever had!
The bartender was very friendly and attentive. Our waiter did a fine job but should have come around more frequently to pour the wine we bought from them. Food is excellent, I had the Mexican Prawns with curry sauce
I can always count on Bridges to deliver delish fresh food & great service
We’ve been going to Bridges for years. Although we hadn’t been in 1 year. They changed the menu and we didn’t see anything that we would want to eat on the main entrees. So I ordered a steak. The worst steak I’ve ever had. Wasn’t seasoned well at all. The server even acknowledged that he’s heard this. He noticed I didn’t eat it so he took it off the bill. I was greatful for that.
Please change your menu back. This is the farthest it’s been from the normal type of menu I’ve seen here.
From soup to nuts , as they say, we were treated with delicious food and a wonderful wait staff.
Our shrimp salads were wonderful. We will return for our next friend’s birthday celebration.
A place to celebrate and enjoy!
We celebrating our Anniversary and it was very enjoyable.
Oh man, the Macadamia Nut Crusted Salmon on wild rice....so awesome! Bridges Danville continues to be a California legend - Great ambience, great outdoor seating, great food, nice wine list, and some very creative cocktails. Proof once again that good eats in the Bay Area are not limited to San Francisco!
The menu at Bridges is very interesting and challenging for a chef, however it is not to my liking. Portions are generous but the preparations need more finesse. There are too many components to the dishes and it feels like the chef is trying too hard. My duck was perfectly cooked but the accompanying couscous salad was not balanced. Too many flavors competing here!
The Mexican shrimp with Thai sauce was OUTSTANDING. Brie and Tuna appetizer great as well. Down side was the noise. I couldn't hear 3 of the 6 people in our party. Squeezed out table in between 4 tops and our chairs were bumped repeatedly.
WE LOVE TO DINE EARLY, WE ALWAYS SEE SOMETHING SPECIAL ON THE MENU, BREAKFAST LUNCH OR DINNER. WE RECEIVED EXCELLENT SERVICE!
Never had a bad experience here!
Bridges was fabulous, from entry to exit. Valet was quick and easy. Hostess was very pleasant. Our service was directed by Maya. She was awesome. Our appetizer was delicious, drinks were generous and the entrees were phenomenal. My wife had the swordfish and I had the ribeye. Dessert was so yummy. We shared the gingerbread pudding. Just an enjoyable evening.
Bridges is great for summer outdoor dining. Being there in January left a bit to be desired. Food was fine, but service was less than attentive and any semblance of real hospitality was lacking. We'd go again for lunch, but for dinner probably only in the summer to enjoy their patio.
Very enjoyable meal!
Party of 14, all food came out at the same time and cooked to perfection! Shawn was our server and did an excellent job. The Filet was amazing!
I met a friend I had not seen in a while. We both had the Seafood Cioppino and found it to be excellent. It was a bigger bowl than we expected for lunch. I would order it again.
Two of us ordered the New York steak and it was barely 1/2” thick and tasted like a steak you’d expect from a fast food restaurant. Terrible!!
Lisa, our hostess, was very kind and personable. She made us feel welcome and important and as if we had known her for some time. The cuisine was exquisite, as all of our party of 4 thoroughly enjoyed everything we ordered. The wait staff was outstanding in their attentiveness and timing, without making us feel rushed, etc. Ours was a VERY PLEASANT DINING EXPERIENCE. (I have already recommended Bridges to other members of my family, my friends, and my business partners.)
Went to celebrate New Years Eve close to home . Service was excellent with multiple employees taking part.
The Pre Fix menu was just not that good. Food was bland not tasty.
I went here with my husband for New Year Eve. They had a special menu. The food had no taste. My first course was a soup that was supposed to have crab. No crab. The waiter noticed I didn’t eat it and came over to offer me a different appetizer. That was a beef tar tar. It was much better in taste but crazy spicy.
My main dish was fish and again not much flavor and the fish was dry. I couldn’t eat it. The dessert was a chocolate mouse and that was delicious. I was surprised the meal had no flavor because they charge $72. The waiter comped my meal so that was very nice. I didn’t complain about the meal so I appreciate that they noticed I didn’t enjoy it and made sure I didn’t pay for it. That’s good management/service. They just need to hire a different executive chef. Too many restaurants to compete with to have food taste like that.
