    Steaks were cooked perfect, but they were fatty and the taste was disappointing, asparagus was super good. hubby loved the sweet potato mash, they were too sweet to my taste. Service was terrific, busy as always.

    Saturday evening at Bridges for a birthday celebration…unfortunately a large party was also celebrating making for slow service, very loud experience. Since we sat for almost two hours we all commented on how uncomfortable the wooden chairs were. The salmon and pork chops were good meals. My shrimp salad was not good, tasteless bed of cold noodles and coleslaw type salad with 5 grilled shrimp. Our fourth meal short rib with noodles was mostly noodles. For the two birthdays they brought out one small cupcake, nice gesture but it was stale. This is the third time I’ve been to this restaurant and not enjoyed the meal. Don’t plan to return.

    I gave them 4 out of 5 stars because i reserved on line for in side seating. When we arrived we were seated outside. I asked why and was told when reserving on line you are automatically put outside. Weird. But everything else was perfect. The food was delicious. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. This was Easter brunch and we were very impressed on how everything was top notch.

    Friday night during spring break was a quieter and less rushed dinner. The salmon came on mashed potatoes (should have asked for a starch substitute) and the daily special was a fish stew which was brimming with mussels, shrimp, scallops and chunks of several fish in a coconut milk sauce. It was delicious. Dessert of apple crisp was more apple than crisp. Gelato was not available because of a kitchen problem.

    A favorite spot in downtown Danville, which is full of great options for food and drink. Super comfortable outside dining area you can enjoy most days. Our favorite lunch date is Bridges to share the Bridges Burger and Honey Chicken sandwich…so tasty!

    Although we live locally we’ve not been back for years. Although the service was good, we left unimpressed. The restaurant also needs a makeover, or at least redesigned so you don’t feel like you’re eating at a cheap wedding reception. Even the candles were fake. Bridges used to be a crown jewel of the east bay. Now it’s just cubic zirconia. The food was good needs a better vision as it seems Asian inspired but only as to a few items.

    I ordered the special -halibut w/soba noodles. The fish was just ok and needed some salt but not very flavorful. I also didn't really like the soba noodles; The shrimp and pork chop were very good my friends told me. Our server was excellent in every way.

    I was really disappointed with our entrees. My husband had the rib eye steak and it was sub par and I order the ahi tuna dish with the forbidden rice. 3 little pieces of over cooked tuna. His ceaser salad came out with no dressing. We had better steaks and ahi at Forbes Mills. It was our anniversary which they honored us with a small cupcake.

    Our party of 5 went on a Tuesday night. Oddly, the restaurant was a bit busy, due to some after work happy hour. Food was just meh. Service was subpar at best. Not a big deal, but they also ran out of bread for a 630 resy. Ambiance was okay, but noise level is a bit high. Only plus was drinks were stiff; but suprisingly, the bar uses subpar cherry for its old-fashioned and not luxardo.. why?! All in all, I don’t think the overall experience matched what we paid for a pricey dinner.

    The restaurant was decent, but there were a ton of gnats. It made for an annoying meal. I mentioned to one of the staff members, and he admitted they have been really bad lately. I gave him some tips on how to control them but surprised a highly rated place would not have a plan in place.

    We always enjoy the food here (this time Steak, Risotto, 2 way chicken, Salmon), although the menu seemed more limited than last time (6 months ago). Unfortunately there was a huge birthday party going on (including video screen, etc.) and they gave them a microphone which blasted through the whole restaurant. Good wine selection and I always enjoy the Doubtfire cocktail (jalapeño infused tequila),

    I had family visiting from England. My cousin is a huge, huge fan of the movie, Mrs Doubtfire, so he was thrilled when he found out that we were going to be sitting in the spot where the cast had sat!!! The staff were extremely welcoming. The server was very knowledgeable about the food, and the food we ordered was delicious. It was mine, and my husband’s first time there, but it won’t be our last for sure!! Thank you to everyone!
