Bridge Street Bistrot & Wine Bar
Wonderful. Superb service. Delicious,authentic food. Just the best night out!
Great food and great service, as usual. We have been going here for 10 years and have never been disappointed.
We enjoyed our meal- classic and delicious. The service was friendly and casual. I’m not sure we’ll be back though. Dining is an experience. They have the food and service right but the decor is a bit country brown with bric brac here and there. A white coat of paint; some decluttering, and blue and white table linens would make it feel more bright and modern and bring in new clients- like us! It was also a bit odd listening to 80s/90s music. The ambiance was very strange. But again food and service were good :)
This is one of our all time favorite restaurants in Portsmouth. Fabulous food, wonderful wine selection, very nice ambiance and great service.
Delicious as always. The food never disappoints and the service is friendly and professional. Love the venue, both the more casual downstairs wine bar and beautiful upstairs.
Loved it the staff couldn’t of been nicer the food was amazing and the atmosphere was perfect
The only drawback is that it’s upstairs. Otherwise, everything about this restaurant is spectacular. The staff is super nice & knowledgeable, the cocktails are delicious & the food is outstanding. From what we were told, there is only the chef, no other kitchen help. That way he can control the quality of the food. I honestly don’t know how he does it, but he is simply amazing!
A neighborhood gem that has consistently provided great food for years.
Love this restaurant. Great food with wonderful service. Looking forward to our next visit.
Food was amazing. Great tequila cosmo. We live over an hour away but will be making the trip back regularly to try more of the food.
With all the great restaurants that Portsmouth has to offer, we keep finding ourselves coming back to Bridge Street Bistro. The atmosphere is cozy and welcoming. Service with all staff could not have been better. ...and the food !!!
The catch of the day Provencal and the chicken phyllo were just so good, along with the grated potato cake and perfectly cooked and served vegetables. Nice selection of wines and many enticing options for dessert.
Prices are reasonable.
Wonderful to have such good French food among the many dining options of Portsmouth. ...always worth returning to.
Great food and fabulous service as always. Excellent wine selection and good price point.
What a delightful quiet restaurant with fabulous food. Just off the beaten path but an easy walk to downtown. We had a nice dinner before a concert at the Music Hall just a few blocks away. The Filet Pouvre was phenomenal.
Very Euroupean quaint. Service felt like doting. Unusual in todays society! Great little spot. Highly recommend.
Delicious, creative food. Excellent wine list. Very friendly service. A gem!
One of the best restaurants I've been to in a long time. Loved everything about it.
Our table of three felt welcome and well attended. There was nothing that disappointed, rare at a restaurant. Our three meals could not have been better cooked, presented, or served.
Six or seven times a year we come to the coast of Maine and ALWAYS make a point to eat here. Authentic fFrench food and helpful and cheerful service. Never had a bad or even mediocre meal here.
4 of us had a great meal--cassoulet was terrific; lots of duck and chicken, cooked just right. Rolls/bread were disappointing--why not serve a really nice baguette, like a real French bistro would? But other dishes were great, including steak au poivre and several vegetarian appetizer offerings. Portions were plentiful. We were not rushed in the least. Cozy atmosphere downstairs. Crème brulee for dessert was excellent. We'll be back to try the many other good-sounding items.
Arrived early for a cocktail but was told the wine bar was not opened.
Service was great, they were very good about moving reservation time!! Food was great and service was unbelievable..desserts were great, will definitely be coming back!!
This place is always five stars in every way - the food, the service, the atmosphere — all consistently excellent. I love this place!
Absolutely lovely! Would HIGHLY recommend this restaurant. Food, staff, service, wonderful! I can't believe I am just finding this gem now!
We've lived in the Portsmouth area for 7 years and just discovered this place a few weeks ago. Love it! Sorry to have missed our opportunity for the last 7 years but so happy to have found Bridge St. Bistro. The food is excellent and the staff is very friendly. Great place!!
A great place to relax with wine and excellent food after a busy day
Fantastic authentic French Bistro right non the main drag in Downtown Portsmouth.
Delicious food with terrific service and wonderful atmosphere made for a fabulous evening with friends.
Another fabulous meal at the Bridge Street Bistrot and Wine Bar. This dinner is an annual event for us. We schedule our trip so that we can stop at the Bistrot for dinner on the way to our hotel.
Bridge Street always is a delight. It is a very small restaurant, owned and operated by a wonderful couple. The food is always superb.
My sister and I took a much needed mom's night out. We don't get out much so we were very much looking forward to this. The food and drinks were excellent. Service too. We will be back again.
We love coming here. The restaurant is intimate and you feel like you're in someone's home.
Great restaurant with wonderful food and service. We are looking forward to our next trip to Portsmouth.
This chef and owner-run gem is the real thing - an honest, simple French restaurant, with food that you remember with affection from the 60s and 70s that is almost extinct today. Standards like Coquille St. Jacques and Coq au Vin were spot-on delicious, the Coq au Vin simply outstanding, showing care in preparation and an appropriately long stewing time so the fowl was redolent of its wine and vegetable components. The Coquille had both the usual scallops and added shrimp in its champagne and shallot cream sauce which further elevated the dish. My companion really enjoyed her Filet au Poivre which was tender and flavorful, prepared exactly as ordered. A modest though carefully curated wine list was another plus. The delightfully decorated dining room is charming and intimate, allowing another nearly extinct plus: quiet conversation. Anyone who loves a bistro-style menu will be very happy here. Kudos!
Excellent food and service as always. One of our favorite places to dine in Portsmouth.
Hidden gem in Portsmouth that has been around for over 25 years. Excellent food, great service all for a VERY reasonable price. As a local, this is my GOTO if I want a great meal!!
Great restaurant a little bit off the beaten path in Portsmouth, with wonderful ambiance, fantastic food and marvelous service. Well worth the two or three blocks away from the downtown bustle.
We’re on a road trip and read outstanding reviews of this restaurant. It exceeded our expectations. The food is beautifully prepared, the cocktails and wine list are excellent, and the service was smooth and professional. I had the steak at poivre with a potato wedge and fresh veggies, washed down by a glass of French rose. Dessert was a superb flourless chocolate cake with a glass of Armagnac. A real high point on our vacation.
First timers who live in Portsmouth! We loved Bridge Street and will make it part of our routine in town. Food, service, ambience was great! Highly recommend!
Bridge Street Bistrot is our favorite Portsmouth restaurant, and that is quite a compliment in this foodie town. The food always pleases and the owners and staff bring a personal touch to their interactions. When we entertain foreign visitors, this is our "go-to" restaurant. I have recommended Bridge Street Bistrot many times, with happy results.
My wife and I have travelled extensively in Europe. Bridge Street Bistrot & Wine Bar is a peer among the finest restaurants in serving French Country cuisine. They also have a wonderful by-the-glass wine list. And above all, this gem of a restaurant offers great value for your money.
