Just imagine watching the color-bursting sunset in Bradenton Beach, sipping your favorite drink and savoring every moment, while anticipating your dinner at the third floor Bridge Street Bistro. The simple name "Bistro" doesn't capture well the elegant setting you are surrounded by, with orchids and blooming flowers on the white tablecloths. It took some effort to select our entrees from...

Great location great food and you get live music. On the day we went it was fairly quiet however we have seen it at other times and it's heaving. Recommend for a lively night out in Bridge street

Service was very friendly. Onion soup was a bit high in sodium, I've had better. I liked the arugula salad better. The 2 entrees we had were ok. Seafood risotto was a bit bland I go to a restaurant in Miami that makes it phenomenal and creamier. The other entrée Duck was good per my husband. Maybe if we try... More

Have not been impressed with Florida restaurants so what a surprise and great pleasure this turned out to be. Great ambience and setting and excellent waiter. Food is good quality and not over complicated.Recommend

If you are a fan of grouper, this is a must! If you enjoy a beautiful view at sunset, across the street from the gulf, this a must! If you want to treat yourself to fine food, good service and have dinner "over the top" of the beach people, this is the lace. Parking is tricky on weekends, but it's... More

Saw this place online had 4.5 stars. Figured I would take my date for the sunset and a nice dinner. Sunset is marred by buildings across the street. Not much on the menu if you're allergic to seafood, as my date was. We ate al fresco. She ended up with potato encrusted grouper. She enjoyed it. My mahi-mahi was dry... More

We called at 6.05pm for a 5 top. They said they were really busy at 7 but if we got there in the next 15 mins they could accommodate us. This was a Saturday night peak season. We over shot the road and then joined busy traffic that went over the bridge. We arrived at the restaurant 6:50pm. We said... More

Started out confused as we walk upstairs. I did not understand the loud and let's just say it's not "Bern's Steakhouse" kitchen we had to walk by but oh well. The bartender was angry and so were the older Florida men servers with sweat on their foreheads. Food was so so same as the other ones on the beach it... More

We have been dinning here for a while now. The food is absolutely fabulous. We took my son and his fiancé for dinner to see what they thought of the food and atmosphere for the rehearsal dinner.
