There were 6 of us, 5 ordered the same item however two were with special instructions, when the food was deliver by the runners, not the server, they did not know who got what and never mentioned that two were cooked special. My suggestion is to STOP using runners. The server should be the “SERVER” or call them what they are “ORDER TAKERS”.

Other than the hostess at the front being a little unresponsive to our presence the service was excellent. Food was better than I had remembered. One of the best I I’ve had in Danville. No wonder it’s still in business! Would definitely eat there again soon

Let me start with I love Bridges. The food is delicious and everyone is very nice.

This time I was hosting two very good friends from out of town. It was my choosing to go to the best restaurant in Danville. Unfortunately, this time wasn’t the best.

We had missing spinach from a spinach scramble. We asked for jam, our server left to retrieve jam. He returned 10 minutes later and stated the restaurant didn’t have jam. We requested coffee, that took about 10-13 minutes. After the fact we were told they were brewing a fresh pot, and it took my friend a long time to get a coffee warm up.

I hope this comes as constructive criticism. I will be returning in hopes that the service is back to Bridges level.

Thanks

Sunday brunch customer

went late for dinner on a Friday, service was spotty except for the bread bacon was not cooked as much in the halibut dish, and my passionfruit lemon tart drink was not as good as last time, too much lemon & vodka not enough other stuff...it is usually spot on, so my guess is this was all because we were there late.

The food and atmosphere were great. It was very clean and inviting. Not too crazy about the complimentary dessert. The server could have been a little more attentive, especially compared to the other servers near our table. Overall it was a very pleasant experience that I would strongly recommend.

The patio seating was fabulous, with great weather and gorgeous lighting, and live entertainment in the background. Our waiter was attentive and engaging. The artichoke ravioli and The Special grilled line caught catch of the day were scrumptious. Just steps away from the Village Theatre. A perfect evening.

I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful setting to celebrate my late mother's birthday, especially since it had been on her bucket list to dine here (Mrs. Doubtfire has been a family favorite since my childhood). We each ordered a different dish and enjoyed each one immensely. The desserts were rich and decadent, and we had trouble choosing between the different options because they all sounded so lovely. The sauce for the Mexican Prawns was incredible, and the Balsamic Swirl Cheesecake is worth a return trip!

I did want to note - since our mother had recently passed (just earlier this year) there were a few moments throughout the evening where emotions overrode us, but the server was incredibly compassionate and patient. Upon discovering the reason for our celebration, he comped our desserts in a much appreciated gesture of kindness. We cannot express enough gratitude for the stellar service - it made our experience even more special and memorable.

We went there for Saturday date night. Sat outside. Service was good. Food was nothing remarkable. The bread to start tasted stale and plain. I had the pork chop and my husband had the salmon - both were good and nice size portions. We had the creme brulee for desert which was very rich - it had a biscotti on the top that could have broken a tooth.

We - three ladies - enjoyed Sunday brunch, seated outdoors. Unfortunately our lunch date coincided with smoke from the Solano fires. We were offered to move inside the restaurant but enjoyed staying outdoors by the fountain, listening to the live music.

Disappointing experience.
I had indicated we were celebrating birthdays - yet nothing was mentioned or done.
Two of us are vegetarians (and allergic to mushrooms), the menu selection was quite limited, and some specifics were not indicated on the menu (ingredients, whether or not items were "on the side").
Server was just okay - not particularly helpful with the menu, or our issues with the food.

which drowns out the white sound from the fountain and
