“Atmosphere, value and cuisine”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

The food and drink was marvelous and not expensive, despite the location right on the water. I had the chili-lime shrimp and a large house salad for dinner, along with a Basil-tini which was perfection.

“Excellent Food, Excellent Service”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

While staying in Astoria in early November my sister and I asked for restaurant recommendations at our hotel. We were directed to the Bridgeview Bistro. It was walking distance from our hotel (Cannery Pier) and the food and service was excellent.

The prices were reasonable and they had an extensive wine list. We both had the fish and chips and everything about the meal was excellent.

Our waiter was very attentive without being bothersome. For some reason most waitstaff have difficulty achieving this happy medium.

If you get the chance, have dinner here while in Astoria. You won't be sorry.

“very good”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

We picked the restaurant because of mostly good reviews and its location near our hotel. We were not disappointed. This is a busy well organized place, geared to tourists. It is not intimate, nor local (from what we could tell). We had no problems with our reservation, and were seated in a booth on the edge of the room. The food was very good, not subtle but not overdone either. We had fish which was quite fresh. Essentially if you are on a road trip, as we were, and aren’t expecting a big city gourmet experience, you will very likely enjoy your experience here

“Great place in Astoria!”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

I came here on my last visit through, Astoria, and so when I was back in town, I wanted to be sure to go here again. First off, the restaurant is located right on the water, and has a great view of the bridge over to WA. Restaurant is laid out very nicely, and staff are very friendly. Food was very good; I had a really delicious crab type of bisque to start, which was very tasty. It's definitely a great place for a nice meal, and can be a nice way to end your day. I recommend!

The food was really good. The steak with blue cheese, mashed potatoes, and grilled veggies was perfectly cooked and delicious.
