It is nicely located, with view of night lights in the evening. Overall it had a huge tall ceiling, very spacious feeling, but not particularly appealing to us. Waitresses were very slow. The food tasted good, but was lukewarm. Overpriced for what the experience was. Not likely to go back.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I am very sorry you were not fully satisfied with your experience. I have posted your response for our service and kitchen staff to review, as slow service and lukewarm warm are definitely not up to the standards to which we constantly strive. If you will e-mail me directly (tony@bridgewaterbistro.com)... More

Unbeatable views, delicious food and amazing wine selection. Perfect for a larger party or an intimate experience for two. My favorite are the half moon tables facing the floor to ceiling windows. We enjoy the Cioppino, seared Ahi Tuna, crab cakes, crannberry salad. The atmosphere is terrific, repurposed warehouse retaining original refurbished flooring. We bring visitors here often and have... More

It was really good The desserts were small however just right after a... More

Right on the river. We had the fish and chips and we're delighted they were gluten free. While they are designed to have kids the menu items are priced high. If I went back it would be for a date night not a family outing

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).

My wife said it was some of the best seafood she has ever had. The place was packed and the live music was superb. Wonderful experience.
