Alright but probably not worth the $ or the hype. Undercooked scallops were served which had clearly been sitting on the pass for a while (sweaty, had dried at the edges), octopus entree was very overcooked and chewy. Pretty well cooked steak but the jus served with it had a very burnt pan taste. Table water had a "fridge" taste to it - had probably been sitting in the fridge too long. Took 30mins to be brought our first drinks, two bottles of beer. Staff overall good, friendly and polite but only two floor staff that clearly knew the menu, wines etc. Alright place to eat but not the best.

Was a nice small restaurant. Wait staff were fantastic, very friendly and informative. It is a bit more expensive then you’re average Townsville restaurant, but that’s because the food is beautifully cooked and a lot locally sourced.
Excited to go back.

Food was exceptional. We did the degustation with matching wines and enjoyed all of it. The dishes looked beautiful and tasted amazing. The portions were spot on. Only criticism was our initial drinks order of cocktails took a long time to come out but the restaurant was full and busy so it was understandable.

Lamb shoulder looked fine, but very fatty, was only like warm. Side dishes were delicious, but lamb was a little disappointing. My wife had it a few months ago and it was quite different.

Such an amazing food and wine experience! Had the 5 course meal, and the kitchen was kind enough to swap one of the courses. I loved everything, especially the wine. The service was fantastic, and so attentive. Cannot recommend Bridgewater enough!

We often enjoy fine dining however found this venue a little below par.

Menu was quite limited and portions
were very small.
Mains lacked balance.
I had the steak and that’s about what I got. A piece of meat.
Would it be hard to supply some basic vegetables?
Wine list, while extensive was expensive with very little choice under $50.
May return but it will be a while.

My partner and I had a lovely time at Bridgewater. The food was absolutely delicious. My partner had the octopus which was only recently added and it was the best octopus I have tasted. The amount of food was perfect, my partner is an Italian and he was not hungry after, so I call that a success. Whilst the service was always friendly and helpful, my partner and I had to search for staff at times to order drinks. But other than that it was a delightful evening.

First time visiting Bridgewater. The service of the staff was really outstanding, it could not be faulted. The menu was interesting and the meals beautifully presented. My rib fillet was perfect, however I would have liked to see a side slightly larger for it to be served with. A little pricey for me to go regularly definately only a special occasion type place.
