    We love this restaurant but this last visit I was not overly happy with my meal, I ordered the veggie sandwich. The roasted vegetables were a bit tough and it was served on what appeared to be dry toast? It was supposed to have a sauce on it but there wasn't any at all. Thankfully I had plenty of water. We love the dining room, the staff was lovely, only my meal was a bit lacking

    Food was not great! The pork chop was very overcooked and dry! Gumbo was not great! Chowder was thick paste! Our reservation was at 5:15 and we had to wait for our server to show up, but they were accommodating nicely about that! But food was disappointing at best and not cheap!

    Bouillabaisse - Lobster, fennel & saffron broth with fresh mussels, clams, prawns, wild salmon, white fish, calamari, and crab finished with fresh arugula and toasted baguette. They were out of crab so gave me a $3 off of cost. Cup of Clam & Mussel Chowder (potatoes, tomatoes, basil, cream, a hint of curry. Caesar Salad - Romaine lettuce hearts, classic dressing, Asiago, house made garlic-oregano croutons. Altos la Hormigas Malbec. So good I would order the exact same thing. Next time I visited the bistro.

    We absolutely love this restaurant. Ambiance and service are wonderful and the food is always excellent. Highly recommend the Thai Brussel Sprouts for an appetizer (& the dish of the day cakes were excellent). Entrees and desserts are unique and tasty. Great for friend dinner or a more romantic couples night out (but as for a booth as the open table seating feels a little exposed). Huge compliments to the chef who always delivers.

    We have dined at Bridgewater Bistro on several occasions but this was by far our best experience. The food including the Mardi Gras specials was excellent. My wife thought their version of shrimp and grits was one of the best she ever had. Service was very good: attentive but not overly aggressive. The building is somewhat loud due to its openness but the seating is well spaced which helps the noise level. All in all a good experience.

    We made a reservation for Sunday brunch. The restaurant was not tremendously full, but despite this, we were seated at a back table, next to the bussing station. Probably the worst table in the whole place. It took ages before anyone came to our table to take our order. When we asked our wait person if we could move to a better table, she balked and said we would need to take it up with the hostess. We did get a better table, but only after the hostess confessed she was holding it for a birthday group that hadn't arrived yet. Were we meant to back down after that admission? I don't know, but it colored our whole experience. The wait person made odd comments throughout, which didn't help the situation. The food was good but not great.

    Bridgewater has a lovely view, but this most recent dining experience left us wondering if we will return to this special spot. Service was spotty, order was not correct, noise level was very high and this made it very difficult to have a conversation with our elderly guests.
