It was our last night of vacation and we were happy to try Bridge Street Bistrot. The wine list was fine, nothing extraordinary but nice. We had some of the specials and the frozen blueberry mousse for dessert was amazing! The space has a quaint ambience and feels cozy. Food was very good and our server was helpful and efficient....

First time here. Great service. Very accommodating. Nice intimate outdoor dining. Not much of a crowd so it had us worried for nothing. French inspired menu. Nice crusty bread. Good variety on the menu. Salads were fresh and tasty. The Bistro Seafood Stew was loaded with mussels, shrimp, scallops, salmon & white fish. Great broth for bread dipping. The duck... More

The food was absolutely amazing, my wife and I went there last night for a little date night. We shared a spinach salad appetizer and I had the beef tenderloin and my wife had the chicken. Then we had white chocolate mousse for dessert. Each course was perfect, this was our first time there and we will defintely be back.... More

Went there for birthday dinner and were very impressed. Great food and wine selection. Somewhat difficult to find but well worth the "hunt". Will return when in Portsmouth again.

Fabulous menu. Delicious appetizers and good variety of wines. There were four of us and I was the only one not happy with my meal. I had the Bouillabaisse and while generously stocked with fish, the broth was disappointingly bland. I was not wowed. However, my companions raved about the Grilled Beef Tenderloin, Chicken Francais and the Pork Tenderloin. I... More

We enjoyed dinner here the weekend before Memorial Day. My girlfriend had the pork tenderloin and I had the beef tenderloin. Both were cooked exactly as ordered and were delicious. I enjoyed an excellent Spanish cava. Service was very good, friendly but not obtrusive. I'd go back any time I was in Portsmouth.

This is the former Cafe Mirabelle. The name transformation I am told is a long personal saga of the owners. Never matter this place has two seating areas. The smaller in the wine bar has a few tables and is good for couples of foursomes. The upstairs has seveal more tables and can seat a few parties of six or... More

My girlfriend and I were looking for a new place to eat before a play in Portsmouth. There was a little place away from the main streets that caught our eye. This bistrot was awesome. There were 2 floors with a wine bar on the 1st floor and regular dining upstairs. It was an intimate setting with an awesome menu.... More

First impressions were excellent, a very nice restaurant. Excellent staff who served us promptly with drinks and provided menus. The menus had some interesting dishes, all looked set for a promising evening. The food spoiled the evening; it wasn't bad but it wasn't great either. The dishes which looked so promising didn't deliver in terms of flavour or cooking.
