Bridges Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Ambience and service were amazing. My girlfriend has been wanting to go here forever since seeing it on Check Please.
The food fell short , it had the foofy added to it without the tastes or quality . I️ had the seared tuna and as clean of a catch that is you could tell it was 2-3 days old ( fishy taste ) . The kimchee and sauce thankfully balanced out the fishy taste . For the rest of the menu The dishes were rather basic and I️ wasn’t too much a fan of the fall menu having squash, pumpkin risotto in every damn meal. The only way to avoid the fall menu was to go with steak and fries .
The place is a local gem from what I️ know and the food is good , but not great. Not something I️ would choose for a special occasion , but would go back for lunch or a drink if in the area.
Good wine selection
Parking is getting tougher, but that is because of all the great places to eat so close by with Bridges being at the top of the list. Always great service and food. We always get appetizers and salads before the main course because they are just too good to pass on. Saturday nights can be busy and a bit loud, but it is a happy loud and folks are having a good time enjoying a great meal.
We had a wonderful experience at Bridges this evening. A nice before dinner happy hour cocktail and truffle fries with the nicest bartenders and then a great dinner with impeccable service. Seared tuna done just right and a filet done medium rare made a perfect combination to share. We’ll be back!
I hadn't eaten at Bridges for a while and a house guest remembered eating there and wanted to go again. Sadly, we were both disappointed. The entrees were limited, the entree descriptions weren't appetizing and we finally selected the New York steak. It tasted as though it were grilled in oil, probably wasn't 1/2 inch thick and was so tough you could hardly cut it. The blue cheese grits that were served with it were disgusting. The best part of the meal was the ice cream. Sadly, after many years of dining....I will never eat at Bridges again.
The food was excellent, as was our waiter. The kitchen food runners are lacking, though. Our entrees arrived while we were in the middle of our salads, and the runner failed to apologize, she just rearranged everything on the table in order to jam our entree plates onto the table. She had no concern that the entrees were early, and did not seem to care. Our waiter did apologize after I pointed out that this was a significant faux pas, and he did comp dessert and coffee as a result.
Fine dining locations such as Bridges SHOULD KNOW not to bring the entrees until the salad plates have been cleared, and the complete lack of caring by the food runner was appalling.
Slow and inattentive service. The servers were either new or forgetful. We were seated promptly upon arrival but server did not come to our table for at least 10 minutes. She finally came and greeted us at the table. Took her a long time to come back to us to take our drink orders. Even the hostess realized that we did not have any drinks on the table the whole time and offer to take our wine order. Then another long wait before our waitress came back with the bottle of wine.
We ordered the soup of the day which was squash soup. It came out luke warm and really watery. It was so blend that I think canned soup tastes better than that. I also ordered the duck breast entree with cous cous salad. The duck breast came out warm and the skin was soggy. Dessert was NOT good either. We ordered the chocolate souffle cakes and once again it came out cold. I believe chocolate souffle cake supposed to be hot/warm.
Total disappointment on this restaurant.
We were celebrating a friend’s birthday after church on Sunday. I had the avocado toast and salad and it was very good. My friends tried the burger and they really liked their choice as well. I was impressed with the live acoustic guitar artist who even came by to sing Happy Birthday to our friend. It was truly amazing.
Enjoyable lunch, however, I waiter was not very good. He took a long time to get drinks etc. He forgot a few things that we had ordered and despite reminding him several times, failed to bring the dishes/coffee.
Disappointing, but the ambience and the patio is wonderful.
Yet again, nothing short of a delightful experience..The staff is always pleasant they even remember your face if not your name which is totally okay with us. One thing I've learned, the service and servers are a direct reflection of the individual in charge. GM- Mrs. Lisa your staff is genuine, kind, pleasant and accommodating from the moment we arrive on site. Waiter Josh even remembers that Ken does not like fruit in his creme brûlée ..lol now thats exceptional!
Thank you Bridges!

We were celebrating our anniversary and the restaurant went out of their way to make our evening memorable. We were seated immediately and our server was attentive but was able to pace our food arrival so we could enjoy our evening. The menu was varied and our dinner was delicious. We will come back again soon.
The food and service is fantastic
The salmon salad was different than usual instead of a single piece of salmon it was small slivers and not well presented or as good as usual.
Skip the bacon in the s’mores dessert as that’s not healthy and detracts from the great cheesecake. Don’t get weird with the food choices and stick to fresh, local without too many added flavors or ingredients.
We were celebrating my wife's birthday and she thoroughly enjoyed the experience including the service, the romantic atmosphere and the delicious food that can best be described as Asian fusion. She felt that the Three Course Prix Fixe Menu was an especially good value since it included soup or salad + dessert.
We waited almost an hour for our food to be served. First time engaged couples families were meeting - wait made it awkward and a little embarrassing. Our waiter gave us a small bowl of fruit to apologize which was nice but there were 6 of us and 1/2 c fruit didn’t go far. Food good once we got it. Big party going on in next room. Bridges didn’t staff appropriately. Rarely saw our waiter, wait for food excessive.
