“Elegant and Amazingly Affordable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

A group of us visited Bridges for lunch before Christmas. I had not been here in a number of years as I had the impression that it was too pricy for a casual lunch or dinner, but I was really surprised. Bridges has an great lunch menu that is elegant and affordable. I had the salmon salad which was one of the more expensive items at $16. The salmon was grilled medium well as I requested and was hot and tasty. It was presented on a bed of mixes spring lettuces with a few cherry tomatoes mixed in. Others in the group ordered other salads and they were also very satisfied with their meal.
For the guys in our group, there was a tasty burger offered with a side of fries or salad. Several others ordered the three item combo which consisted of a cup of the soup of the day, half sandwich of your choice, and small side salad. This was a deal at $9.95.
Our server was fresh faced and enthusiastic. She was also a pro, appearing just when needed to take orders or answer questions. The dishes came out of the kitchen quickly despite the fact that the restaurant was very busy. I especially like the Christmas decorations in the entry way, a big tree and other decorations around the room. With the white table clothes and napkins, subtle lighting, this place has a very elegant ambiance. I'll be back to try dinner soon.

“Good for Danville, Better Options in SF”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

For fine dining in Danville, Bridges is only one of a handful of fine dining restaurants. The service is good, and the food is good, but not outstanding. The menu items are all upscale, but not necessarily original. It's good for business lunches and dinners, as well as meals with family and friends.

“Decent but overpriced for the food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Some of the food seemed overpriced and overrated. Good food and atmosphere if there aren't too many people there

“Nice place for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

I took my Mom to lunch to thank her for watching my children while my husband I travelled...the food was okay. Honestly a little bland. Since we only drank water, the bill wasn't to bad, but still $30 with tip for lunch for 2. The atmosphere was wonderful. We sat out on the patio...

“Best value with the happy hour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Check out the happy hour each evening (dinner opening to close) monday-friday. The blue plate special rotates monthly and is a great dish at a cheap $7.
