Great place and food

It's a great restaurant with great food. One star off for less than attentive service. Sharpen he pencil on that and you could be higher up the list for sure. Definitely worth a try especially on a nice evening.

This is an upscale restaurant in downtown Danville. We went with friends who live there. I had tuna, which was excellent ,and everyone else enjoyed their meals.

I've been waiting to visit Bridges for years as a Doubtfire fan - it's well worth the journey out from the city to go and have a bite to eat. The layout is identical to that seen in Mrs Doubtfire, including the area that Robin Williams jumps over to force the shrimp out of Pierce Brosnan and the tables are... More

Bridges Restaurant was the restaurant scene for the Robin Williams movie Mrs. Doubtfire. The restaurant has inside and outside dining. There were 4 of us on a Saturday night, one friend is a vegan and the kitchen was great about accommodating her requests. The food was beautifully presented and very good. My husband had received a post birthday card from... More

We dined at Bridges for the first time & were very impressed. The service was excellent, inviting & attentive. We enjoyed the music on the patio, and were very impressed with the patio seating. The menu was diverse, offering options for everyone. My only complaint with the menu is that they are serving farmed salmon (almost took a star off... More

After researching if this restaurant really existed from the movie "Mrs. Doubtfire", I made reservations there with my mother as a birthday present for myself. It looks just like it did in the movie and we even sat at the 2-person table Robin Williams' character sat at during the end of the movie when he is having drinks with Mr.... More

Celebrated my husband's birthday here last night. Asked for a table on the patio when making the reservation and they tried to seat us indoors. However, when I questioned that, they happily accommodated us and we enjoyed dinner on the patio with live music. Music was great (not too loud) and dinner was very nice. Service was very good.

Went there for by daughters birthday celebration. A movive fanatic, we sat at one of the tables where Robin Williams sat. Dinner was very nice, staff was great. Not the best meal I ever had but will definitely go back if in the area.

Beautifully decorated, this high end dining experience provides an unique experience in flavors, colors and tastes. Made popular due to its appearance in the late Robin Williams movie, Mrs. Doubtfire, this restaurant offers exquisite fusion entrees combining Asian, European and Indian influences. Excellent wine list. Not really a family place, however, children are welcome

love having all night long happy hour on the patio! Wednesday thru Satursay music too! Their monthly happy hour specials are really special! Food, fun, friends, sitting outside on the lovely patio is something to look forward to. Dinner inside is a gourmet treat!
