There were two families looking for ice cream and we decided to stop at the Bridge Street Bistro. We ordered ice cream and water and keep in mind that we have small children... After 45 minutes, the ice cream finally showed up and the kids were ready to go.... We were certainly not happy about the long wait and I... More

We had gone to another restaurant for dinner and it was too crowded so we drove to this restaurant and were promptly seated. The food was mouth watering, the waiter was the best and then there was the spectacular sunset. We were unable to find a table on the little deck outside of restaurant but we stood outside to watch... More

The seafood Aurora dish was excellent. Make reservations in advance. We sat in the bar area which made service a little difficult but they were very busy and once you are there everything is on casual time anyways.

After waiting for 20 minutes for a waiter to appear, I had to complain to the manager to get service. After ordering, the waiter said he' be right back with fresh bread. We didn't get it, and had to remind him we were waiting. He seemed very flustered. Dinner then took forever to be delivered. Spring is their busy season,... More

It is a lovely setting. The duck and the veal piccata were very good…though I would have liked a few less capers on the veal. It was a bit noisy for us.

Started out good but my husband and I both ordered the seafood risotto, and both disappointed. The risotto was gummy and decided that I don't like mussels. I also had a problem with sand in my dish...ugh! The waiter apologized for the loudness in the eating area, which was very irritating to us. It appears this is a common problem... More

We love this place and I especially enjoy the roasted duck from past experience. However, the duck was so disappointing this evening, no crispy skin as in the past and very tough. My husband's scallops were superb ... one of the best dinners ever enjoyed here in the Anna Maria Island area. His Greek salad was also beautifully prepared. I... More

Dined here for dinner on an uncommonly cold evening in late March. We had reservations, but arrived early (traffic around Bradenton is often heavy), and were seated immediately. Since it was so cold, we and everyone else dinned inside. Furnishings inside were pleasant, but we wished we could have eaten at an outside table with a great view of the... More
