Unique and experimental small plates. Never had a bad meal here. Egg in a cup is their signature dish, and while it was good, it was my least favorite. Go in with an open mind and try as much as you can.

Hip, upscale restaurant and the prices reflect it. Go for lunch instead of dinner - the food is great and the prices are more reasonable. Good beer selection with a mix of local options. Unique cocktail list, including something that's name I can't remember but which tastes like salad dressing. In a good way mind you, and this is how the waiter described the drink to me, so I had to try it. Also, fun, attentive wait staff.

Came looking for a great place to eat at 11pm! Kitchens were closed then we found West Bridge. Limited menu this late at night but there are some amazing items on the menu. The duck liver toast and beets and salmon roe toasts were my favorite. So 4 stars on that. BUT... 5 stars goes to our AMAZING bartender Chris. He made us the best amaretto sour and old fashion! True craftsmanship work right there. Would definitely come back!!

Great restaurant/bar. I had a good beer/burger combo for lunch. I also noticed that they also have a really interesting selection of liquor even though its not a huge bar. Things like Ransom gin or Peat Monster whiskey that you don't see as often made me want to come back and try their mixed drinks.

Tasty, but small dishes Food: - Squash and burrata - good - The duck egg in a jar - good, creamy and goes well with the bread - Donut holes - 5 with cream and pear accents; a dense dough, I prefer fluffy; crispy on the outside Complimentary fresh warm bread, soft inside and crunchy outside Wide beer selection Good service.

We had a "bridge" serving (pre-dinner) that featured a delicious Duck Liver on Toast (admirably thin); a marinated Portobello Sandwich with sprouts and pickled veggies that was quite good, although the bun was a little dry; and an excellent Chocolate Panna Cotta with toasted pistachios, shiro plums, and chocolate olive cake.

Man, I love this place. Inventive, well executed cocktails. Fun bar food. And dinner is always a treat. It was the first time my wife ever liked brussel sprouts.

I had really high expectations for West Bridge. Blend of French cuisine and the warmth of a New England meal? That could not sound any better. From the description on their website, I might've compared it to Alice Waters's Chez Panisse in my head before the dinner, and that was perhaps my mistake. I liked the dinner, but didn't love it. And for the price ($200 including tips for a tasting menu for two people, one drink each), I have to say I was rather disappointed. It might have to do with the fact that some of the options on the chef's tasting menu (you don't know what was coming until the food was brought to your table) just wasn't to my liking. And honestly, judging from what other people were ordering around us, the chef's selection was far from the more popular selections. That might've been the whole point, but it gave me the sense that I didn't get a good representation of what people liked at West Bridge. I walked away from dinner thinking perhaps I should've opted for making my own selection instead. Loved the decor, the ambience and the ingenuity of the food, which together made me feel like I was back home in California.
