Nice patio

Very popular and busy restaurant, so would definitely recommend reservations. Really great outdoor seating on the patio, with heat lamps and good live music (most evenings). Food delicious and service was very good. Never had a bad meal here. Free valet parking never hurt as well. A little pricy... read more

My friend & I were celebrating our birthdays and went to have brunch. It was quite quiet as it was a holiday weekend and many people were apparently out of town. The waitress, Maria, was very sweet & attentive. Her personality sparkled! Everything we ate was delicious. I can't remember the name of each dish, but all of the egg... More

My wife, son, brother-in-law and I went to dinner at Bridges on a Saturday night to celebrate my spouse's birthday. Service was excellent as provided by Kirsten, our server for the evening. My wife had the Thai shrimp dish, my son the tuna and they each regarded the dishes favorably and would order each again. I had the Caeser salad... More

We had our team dinner here last week. Looked like it's a popular place - difficult to get parking but they do offer complimentary valet parking. The ambiance - classy. The service staff - very professional and polite. The food - from the wine up to dessert , everthing was delicious. The price - definitely not fastfood. I ordered their... More

I have been dining at Bridges since they opened their doors in the 80's. The ambiance is the best in Danville and one of the best in the east bay. Service is always top notch. With that I expect the food to be five star and for 3 out of 4 of us last night it just missed. One of... More

Ate here on 2nd April 2015 for my son's birthday. My family all love the Mrs Doubtfire film so it seemed a great idea for our celebration. The town of Danville is so pretty....I would love to return one day. If you are planning to eat at Bridges go early so you can look around the town. The server we... More

From the moment you arrive at Bridges, you feel welcomed and pampered. The service is first class, the food is fresh and lovingly prepared, and the atmosphere is classy yet inviting. Our party of four chose to dine al fresco in their beautiful patio surrounded by flowering azaleas. A heater was immediately lit to keep away the chill. Live musicians... More

Bridges is the classic, linens-on-the-tables type of place. The food is beautifully plated and reliably good. The prix fix menu available Sunday-Wednesday is a very nice 3 course offering. The patio is nice for a more casual feeling option.

This restaurant, in Danvile, C.A.,was made famous by the Mrs Doubtfire film, which is evident in the posters on display. Our server was delightful. She had the most smiley face I have ever seen and her smile matched her attitude. We had " small bites" , although one dish between us would have sufficed. The confit of duck salad was... More
