The waiter was very friendly. The building is very nicely remodeled with modern styling and high ceiling. Seating has wonderful view of the water with a jazzy/big band music for private dinner table conversations. The food was excellent, Poisson St. Jacques, and wine list very extensive.

This is the only restaurant we visited in Astoria, but we drove around quite a bit. It didn't look like any had a better view. This a classy restaurant with an extensive wine list and great food. The service was just right. (not pushy, but our water glasses were never dry).

It's the best place I have found to eat and drink in a wonderful old town--Astoria, Oregon. High ceilings, roomy layout, wonderful view from every table, friendly service and good food. The wine bar and fireplace add to the pleasure if you lean that way.

The room is beautiful, being a restored old cannery or boat yard building, two tall stories tall, with original... More

My wife and I had an anniversary meal here and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were staying at the nearby Cannery House Hotel and walked down to the restaurant after the hotel made the reservations for us. They have an excellent beer selection - including a number of local brews, which I would recommend. We both had a cup of clam... More

What a romantic way to spend the late afternoon! Smooth jazz music, warm inviting fireplace, water front view, and great drinks and food! The wine list is amazing! They have it all! The appetizers are delicious! We had the crab cheesecake and the smoked salmon with Brie! Both were so good! We then went for the chocolate bête noir cake!... More

The Bridgewater Bistro is not only an excellent restaurant, they make the best burger in the City of Astoria. They also have a fine selection of wines for the wine lovers. Their seafood and beef dishes are the best in town.
