Initial impression was very good until our waiter totally forgot about us. We were seated outside where we wanted to be, our waiter greeted us immediately and politely got our drinks for us. When we were going to order our food I asked him what the soup was, he went to check and never returned. We sat for about 15/20... More

Very relaxing outdoor seating on the bay. Busy at lunch time, but very good food with ample portions at a reasonable price. Wait staff was very attentive. Other diners were friendly and talkative if you wanted to engage in discussions.

I recently took my girlfriend here after a nice day of walking around the beach-front. We arrived around 4:00pm and took a seat at the bar. Our bartender was prompt and friendly, and we decided to reserve a table for dinner. I stood at the hostess podium for several minutes and watched the waitstaff set up tables for dinner. They...

The food was delicious and appealing in presentation starting with the appetizers thru dinner. I will highly recommend this fine dining find to the most savvy of people... More

Great place with wonderful views. Come early for the sunsets. First come first served to sit outside on the terrace. Dining area had a nice ambiance unusual in that respect. Excellent service with a good food choice including roast duck as a change. Bisque Homard delicious and there is a good vegetarian choice. Unusually, European wines on offer at sensible... More

Seriously not sure why it was so slow when we were there. Beautiful sunset, good wine list and excellent food. Service was great and food worth every penny. Will return for sure.

Stopped in for Happy Hour on a Friday about 5pm. Bartender (Kitt) very friendly. They had just opened for service, so only a few other folks sitting at bar. Ended up having the beet salad and a shrimp appetizer - both were delish. BF had the chowder and the oysters bienville, which he really enjoyed. Fantastic view across Gulf Dr... More

Had high expectations for this our first time at this restaurant. We ordered from 3 course meal menu and was informed after we placed our order that the desert was NOT available. The spinach salad was missing something. The entree took a long time nearly 45 minutes and there were only 10 customers in the restaurant. Took another 20 minutes... More

We went to the Bridge Street Bistro for dinner on a wet Monday evening, when many of the restaurants we had selected turned out to be closed. The place was buzzing, with practically all tables as well as bar stools already taken. In addition, there was live music so that the noise level was way above what we prefer. The... More
