Memorable Memorial Meal

This is my favorite restaurant in Florida. Ordered Grassy Key Grouper - perfectly prepared and completely delicious. Server Lisa was great, friendly and there with everything we needed, but not intrusive.

This is probably one of the nicest restaurants in the area. It has white table cloths and fine silverware. The waitstaff is professional and prompt. However, the food is pretty much average. My wife had the potato crusted grouper. It is like grouper with an IHOP hash brown on top. Not bad, but nothing special. I had a salad and... More

Our first (and, definitely not last), visit to the Bridge Street Bistro was a delight from beginning to end. We were celebrating our dear friends' 34th wedding anniversary, and enjoyed a gorgeous view of the sunset, and a delicious dinner. Lisa was our server...what a sweetheart! She made us feel welcome and was very knowledgeable about the menu, answering any... More

While staying on Longboat Key we constantly used Tripadvisor to search out restaurants in the area. Our final evening we chose Bridge Street Bistro. There were four adults. Food and service were top notch. Seafood was very, very fresh. Preparation was excellent. Service from our waiter (Scot) was great, especially when he rescued us while dining outside and it started... More

Hubby and I were able to get a table on a Sunday night but I would recommend making a reservation as they were fairly busy. All the food (the salad, bread, surf-and-turf, and grasskey grouper with shrimp), was prepared perfectly and delicious. I felt the prices were reasonable for what we got and compared to other restaurants in the area.... More

We could not have had a better meal or view and a wonderful staff than we did tonight at this restaurant! Our server, Lisa, was the best! Thank you for making our 40th wedding anniversary a night to remember!

My husband and I were able to eat outside and enjoy the lovely evening air and colors of the sky after sun went down. We ordered the muscles which were very good. The fish dinner I ordered was slightly dry. My husband ordered the seafood risotto and it was amazing. There was enough for two so I was able to... More

The Bridge Street Bistro was delicious! If you go, definitely ask for a table on the deck - amazing views of the sunset over the Gulf! My husband and I ate here twice during our vacation because the food was so yummy! We both had grouper dishes and all was delicious! Everything was so fresh - from the salads to... More

Food was excellent. Our waiter recommended dishes and drinks based on our taste. Nice place for a dinner and a sunset. We had a table right near the outside upper deck which was already full. Nice spot for a tasty and romantic dinner!
