Usually when I go to these "American" restaurants, their appetizers would be fantastic but their entrees would be lacking. Not this place. In fact, I was blown away by the quality of their foods such as but not limited to their charcuterie, brussel sprouts (who thought they could be THAT tasty?) and their NY strip steak. After going to various steak houses, I have always preferred cooking my own steaks because they're usually considerably better than the steakhouses I would go to. I'm talking about Morton's Steakhouse, Ruth Chris, Long Horn, Outback, Texas Roadhouse, Mastro's Steakhouse (LA) and others. Even though I still prefer to eat my own steaks, the NY Strip steak I had here was none the less fantastic; perfectly cooked (medium rare), juicy, super tender and beefy, the way the strip is supposed to be. I can go on and on about this experience I've had with my wife just a couple nights ago but that would probably bore you. TJ, our waiter was fantastic in every aspect. No complaints. Just happiness.

Enjoyable Saturday evening. This is a tough reservation to get. Window seating is cozy but worked out fine. Service was excellent, very comfortable atmosphere. Food was uneven. Duck wings were a disappointment - was there any flavor on them? Red Velvet dessert was served too cold. Entrees (cioppino, steak) were excellent. Meal, drinks and tip worked out to about $75 per person. I would go back again.

Everything was very good. My wife had the night’s chicken special and I had the Atlantic Char, which was also very good. Service was very good, but not intrusive. We will be back.

We had a wonderful experience. Can’t say enough about our server, Stacy. She was attentive, friendly, made us feel comfortable, and recommended delicious choices for us. Her wine recommendations were spot on. Thank you for a fabulous evening at one of our favorite restaurants.

Hello- this was, unfortunately, a visit that does not make wish to visit your restaurant again without better accommodations.

-I asked to bring out a side with our appetizer- this did not happen
-We waited nearly 45 minutes for our food without being given an update
-I was given the wrong dish. The waiter was curt when he replied "You ordered the X" to which I said "I did not; I ordered the Y"
-My kale salad (the right order) was cold when it was supposed to be hot
-The french fries tasted like they came from McDonald's
-The whiskey pour we asked for was minuscule- less than 1 oz

Overall, we were there nearly 2 hours during "lunch" and received miserable service and mediocre food.

I would greatly appreciate any chance to rectify this!

Very nice Valentines Day dinner. Food was excellent and they offered 2 wine flights to go along with the menu. Fixed price menu was $85 and Flight was $40, so a little pricey, but I felt it was worth it. Service was good, very attentive staff.

We normally have a wonderful experience at IBWC. This time we were seated 20 minutes after our reservation time, and did not get drinks and food ordered in a timely fashion. The couple seated after us had ordered a bottle of wine, had it poured, and enjoying it while we sipped water and waited to order. The food was delicious but the disappointing service set the tone for the meal.

I'd like to apologize for the disappointing service you received on your most recent visit. We always do our best to honor reservation times, but sometimes our guests are having such a great time that they stay far longer than we anticipate. However, that's no excuse for inattentive or untimely service. If you'd be so kind as to send me your address, I'd like to send you something to invite you back and show you how much better we can do. Sincerely, Jesse Corwin Assistant General Manager

Food was fine but small portions considering the cost.
Wine overpriced as with all restaurants but with so few by the glass options...

Dear maureenh ~ Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm very sorry to hear that you felt the menu was overpriced. We try very hard to make sure that our 30+ by the glass options are priced in line with other local restaurants. For a really great value, please feel free to join us again on Thursday nights when all of wines by the bottle are 40% off. We look forward to seeing you again soon at The Bridge!

Overall, it was a good brunch, but just a few things that could use improvement. There wasn't a lot of people there and yet the food took long time to come out. I got the breakfast sandwich, it was rather bland, a little salt and pepper would have worked wonders. The bacon and egg were cooked just right! The crispy Brussels sprouts were awesome! The house bloody mary was very good!

This place is always like coming home. The wait staff is great and our waiter had wonderful suggestions for wine parings. The brussel sprout appetizer is always excellent and the creme brulee never disappoints! They have many wine selections so you can always find the perfect wine for your meal.

My husband I visited during restaurant week and although they were extremely busy the service and attention we received did not falter. The food was amazing and our server, Nick was extremely knowledgeable and attentive. Also their wine "list" is significant. You are sure to find something that you would love

Brussel sprouts were amazing. Omelet, brie, and desserts: creme brulet layered on a small bed of chocolate underneath was a nice surprise.

Server was so sweet and fantastic. I can’t wait to come back again.
