The Bistro is one of my favs. It is a place I recommend to friends and business associates visiting Charleston. The pork chop is fabulous. Sometimes there is also live music.

I love this place and the food is usually amazing! Mine was ok. The halibut was cooked perfectly, but my risotto fail short. The risotto was bland and cold. Our server was not very personable. We were a little disappointed.

Bridge Road Bistro is great for date night. It is quaint, quiet and romantic. It was nice to relax and enjoy my dates company without a lot of background noise. We went on a night with live music but the music wasn't loud and didn't interfere with our conversation. The food was not only delicious but the presentation was great... More

The Bistro is really a "go to" place, it needs to be on everyone's bucket list. The atmosphere is great, the service is outstanding, and the food truly is amazing. Try it you won't be sorry, and I bet you will return many more times.

Sort of an odd location in a residential area, nonetheless this eatery offers an impressive menu and a nice atmosphere. The proprietor is a former executive chef at The Greenbrier - and it shows. I was there during "Restaurant Week" in Charleston so they were running a special 3-course meal offering that was very reasonably priced. Highly recommend.

This was a pleasant restaurant. My server was nice, very nice atmosphere and food selection was good. I do feel though that when compared to similar tiered restaurants, the food wasn't quite as good. I got a steak for dinner and it tasted more closer to a mid range restaurant, not a fine restaurants steak. We did also get a... More

This is the first time we visited thanks to a gift card given to us by a friend. We were told the restaurant was pricey, therefore we went for lunch instead of dinner. We order the onion soup bowl expecting the entree to be a small sandwich, however the serving was big considering the price. I don't think it is... More
