Great place with wonderful views. Come early for the sunsets. First come first served to sit outside on the terrace. Dining area had a nice ambiance unusual in that respect. Excellent service with a good food choice including roast duck as a change. Bisque Homard delicious and there is a good vegetarian choice. Unusually, European wines on offer at sensible... More

Seriously not sure why it was so slow when we were there. Beautiful sunset, good wine list and excellent food. Service was great and food worth every penny. Will return for sure.

The Bridge Street Bistro is a lovely restaurant across the street from Bradenton Beach (Florida). The dining room is on the third floor of the building and it has a spectacular view of the sunset at dinnertime. The evening we were there the sunset was picture perfect. The Bridge Street Bistro was participating in Restaurant Week the evening we dined... More

Stopped in for Happy Hour on a Friday about 5pm. Bartender (Kitt) very friendly. They had just opened for service, so only a few other folks sitting at bar. Ended up having the beet salad and a shrimp appetizer - both were delish. BF had the chowder and the oysters bienville, which he really enjoyed. Fantastic view across Gulf Dr... More

Had high expectations for this our first time at this restaurant. We ordered from 3 course meal menu and was informed after we placed our order that the desert was NOT available. The spinach salad was missing something. The entree took a long time nearly 45 minutes and there were only 10 customers in the restaurant. Took another 20 minutes... More

We went to the Bridge Street Bistro for dinner on a wet Monday evening, when many of the restaurants we had selected turned out to be closed. The place was buzzing, with practically all tables as well as bar stools already taken. In addition, there was live music so that the noise level was way above what we prefer. The... More

I ordered the scallops and they were very tasty but the hollandaise sauce with crab was a thick, gummy mess and I know it is because my food sat under a heat lamp for too long. The server had to deliver my plate with a towel it was so hot!! The lobster bisque starter was delicious. When you are slow... More

We had a late lunch here recently and had a nice time. Good drinks and very nice waiter. It was very hot and we sat outside and our waiter adjusted the umbrella so the sun wasn't beating down on us. Much appreciated!

We had dinner there. The first impression was good, the waiter was attentive and friendly. I ordered an onion soup, which had a nice presentation, but what a pity... it was too salty… Otherwise, everything else was fine. The desserts were great: they served 3 miniature cream brûlée in cups with different tastes.

Order the honey curry shrimp dish for a divine combination of grilled asparagus, more shrimp than you can eat and a crispy lobster wakame fritter. We took our meal to go, so I can't review the service. We've visited Anna Maria Island for a summer family vacation for 3 years and just discovering this restaurant is a sure stop on... More
