We dined here for my daughter’s 30th birthday. As a group of 4, we had an exceptional experience with really attentive and personalised service. We chose the menu chef with paired wine choices. Everything was beautifully presented and delicious. Dennis, our server, went the extra...mile. He took us to a private area to play Happy Birthday on the piano, followed by ‘Perfect Imperfections’ with a glass of bubbly. He really turned this into a wonderful and unforgettable evening. Thank you so much.More

My husband and I came to Bridges to celebrate a 10year wedding anniversary. Yr waiter Jacob was amazing! His description of every dish as they came out with much complexity was astonishing. He was just as excited for us to taste the food as we...were. We were absolutely blown away by the flavors, service, and over in total experience. It was so wonderful and we cannot recommend it enough. I was not as open to eating some of the meats in the tasting menu being that I’m pickier but the vegetarian option did not disappoint. If you can do the full experience, it will not disappoint. Thank you Jacob again for a lovely evening!More

Part of the Grand hotel, Accor. Very pleasant lighting and atmosphere with good table spacing. Staff were friendly and helpful. You can go with Menus or a la carte, which are plates from the menus. The plates are not bad, except the sole which is...quite ordinary. Service was inconsistant. Good wine list but overpriced, even for a big city. At this level everything must be perfect, but it wasn’t, like plates which are not warm enough. Good, but at these prices that’s not good enoughMore
