Great service and amazing food
I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes.
An outstanding restaurant!
The menu has something for everybody, the food is outstanding and the service is first class!
Fabulous degustation with matched wines. As always outstanding service and welcoming staff. Thanks Bridgewater
Very nice dining experience and great food.
It was my birthday and I couldn't ask for a better to place to spend it at. It was my wife n I 3rd time here and we love it every time. There is nothing bad to say and nothing to fault. We will be back many a time. Just an amazing hidden gem. Love it. The staff very helpful and exceptional, food is just wow the views amazing just fine dining at its finest.
Overall another amazing dinner at Bridgewater, we had the 5 course degustation absolutely beautiful.
Excellent food that was delicious. We did have to wait awhile for our food as we ordered before the table next to us and they received theirs first but it wasn’t overly long. Overall a lovely night
Food was amazing! I don't eat seafood but I ate some here and it was delicious!
Overall really nice place, tasty menu and good service
The food and wine was lovely- had a great evening! Thank you
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.
The staff were extremely attentive and the food was amazing. I have already recommended to others.
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.
Great food, great space and most of all great staff. Their service was outstanding and nothing was too much trouble. Best dinner in town.
The restaurant was extremely busy the night we were there. Despite this, the food and service was exceptional. Best meal we have had in a very long time.
Food was sensational.. It came quickly and the staff were very attentive.
The five course degustation with paired wines was such a great dining experience! Wonderful, professional service and relaxed ambience. Excellent night out thanks to Bridgewater! We will be back!
One of the best restaurants in Queensland! Beautiful quality ingredients cooked and combined very well.
This is the second time I have been to Bridgewater. First time, I gave it a 5 star review. Sadly, this time around, my experience was completely different. Service was not as attentive. You have to rely on waiters to fill you glass of water. They filled ours once at the start at that was it.
My wife had the zucchini flower. It tasted nice but only one flower was too small of a portion. I have the pork belly for entree. The pork tasted ok but was dry. The pumpkin puree was divine but they only gave me one table spoon. It came with two pieces on blackened baby corn. They were truly horrible. It made me wonder if any of the cooks had tried that combination.
For main, my wife had the fried fish and I had the steak. Fried fish was very nice but all up she got about 150g of fish. It was nothing special.
The steak had a beautiful smoky flavour and was cooked to perfection. However, it came with a teaspoon of red sauce and a teaspoon of crushed nuts as well as a mixture if things wrapped in a leaf. The nuts tasted terrible but the worst was the leaf. I don't understand why they would think that that would add anything to that meal. To top it of, the steak knife I got was the worst steak knife I have ever used. My arm was actually sore from trying to cut the meat so I started to use the butter knife my wife had and it was actually better. Just buy some tramontina steak knives. They look much better and actually work.
We also had one beer and one cocktail. The cocktail was the ginger beer and it was very nice.
In the end, it cost us about $163. Was it worth it? No. Will I return? No.
We really enjoyed the degustation menu. Great balance of flavours!
The best in Townsville, we highly recommend it.
This was the first time my wife and I had a chance to enjoy dinner alone for four years and I couldn’t have hoped for more. This was the first place we thought of and The team at Bridgewater didn’t disappoint.
Very nice restaurant very nice food enjoyed the whole experience
We had an a delightful celebratory dinner for 4. The food & service were outstanding with beautiful views across the river. 10 out of 10!
Service was amazing. Food and Cocktails were delicious.
Food was very average.
I have been here 3 times before and the food was beautiful. Not sure what happened this time?
The desserts were untouched and the waiter who cleared the table did not acknowledge the untouched desserts.
At end of meal we were without drinks and were not looked after . Food was good but small menu.
First time customer. Will certainly go back. Thank you.
Beautiful view, food and service. Could not fault it!
The food taste and presentation was amazing could not of been happier
Food at Bridgewater is sensational. It was a full house with happy energy. Despite this, seating was intimate. We were very unhappy with the service. We sat for half an hour watching other diners be seated and presented with menus. We had to ask for our menu. My partner's drink came out 15mins before mine, table water was offerred twice in 2hours and no other drink order was taken. Once food was ordered it came out in a timely manner. Had to ask for a dessert menu and gave up waiting for the order to be taken. Upon checking out, we advised manager of our unhappiness to which they acknowledged they knew about it but offerred no compensation. For a restaurant of that calibre, I would expect a higher standard. A dissapointing way to spend a 21st wedding anniversay when there are other high-end restaurants to choose from.
Delicious from beginning to end, beautiful view, attentive service - thank you!
The food was absolutely amazing and the waitstaff was lovely, my only complaint is the portion sizes being very small for the price but I guess that is to be expected at a higher price point restaurant
Service initially slow but improved. Staff very pleasant. Bit noisy. Nice comfortable chairs, thanks. Food inventive, different, but all combinations worked beautifully. Have never before enjoyed a dessert so much as the Strawberries and Cream; surprising combinations and absolutely perfect. All in all a lovely lunch with interesting flavours and textures. Beautifully presented and well executed. Yum.
We enjoyed the degustation menu which was absolutely beautiful. I had my meal paired with wine. Each course and wine was paired perfectly. Looking forward to doing it again
We came here to celebrate our anniversary. We enjoyed the degustation offering - beautifully prepared & tasy food, with a nice touch recognising our anniversary coming with dessert. The wait staff were attentive, friendly & personable, spending time with us despite being very busy on the night.
Initially the noise level was difficult, however this naturally dissipated as the numbers in the restaurant reduced.
We were very happy with our evening at Bridgewater.
Had a fabulous dinner at Bridgewater, food and service was excellent. Thanks we will be back for the degustation
