This was our second visit to Florence and to this Bridge Water/Zebra Bar Restaurant. We ordered fresh garlic wine clam linguini, pesto Cesar salad, clam chowder and steamed clams (a miscommunication, we did want steamed mussels instead). All were very tasty, however, the sauce for the linguini was the same as steamed clam, thus we ended up tasting the exact same flavor twice). We liked the nice ambience here, and the location of the restaurant was super, right on the Main Street of the historic downtown. It was easy to find a parking spot nearby too.
Got the salmon sandwich and absolutely loved it! Everything was perfectly crispy (bread and fries) and melted in my mouth (salmon and avocado). The interior was super pretty and cozy, and everyone was super welcoming and friendly!
Great seafood restaurant in Florence. I enjoyed everything I had here, and the service was excellent. I recommend calling ahead to see how long the wait is an hour before you decide to eat there, since they don't take reservations. I had the grilled salmon with the capers and black rice and a salad. I also had a small cup of the seafood chowder. Even the whipped butter and soft sourdough bread was delicious, and I don't really like sourdough bread. I was disappointed that they ran out of the Marionberry crumble dessert, but other than that... I highly recommend this place.
Great seafood! I can highly reccomend the coconut shrimp and chowder here. 🍤 The drinks selection is superb 👌 The salmon sandwich was great with a little extra aoli, and the seafood soup is a huge warm feeling! 😋
We had a 45 minute wait, which was expected on a Saturday at 6pm. We ordered drinks and an appetizer. 2 fauxemosas and the Brie with apples and bread. We got our drinks and waters about 15 minutes after being seated. The Brie about 5 minutes after that. They were all very good, however, my drink glass has thick lipstick all over the rim of the glass like it hadn’t been washed, at all. They did take the drink off my bill. I ordered the surf and turf which was steak, mashed potatoes and shrimp scampi. I asked for my steak to be cooked medium. My son ordered the salmon Mac and cheese. We waited about an hour for our main entrees. The salmon Mac was hot and looked great, but the cheese sauce was very gritty like it’s powder. The steak that should have been medium was closer to rare and not hot, the mashed potatoes were cold. Not like they were a little warm, they were refrigerator cold. The shrimp was warm and flavorful. I traded meals with my son because I couldn’t eat the rare steak. Neither of us are the potatoes because they were cold and soaked in a pool of blood. I understand that they may have been short staffed, but during the 2 1/2 hours we were in this restaurant we did not get our waters refilled at all and there was not any time that anyone checked on us to see if we needed anything. Terrible service and terrible food. Do not recommend!
