Dining at the Tower Bridge Bistro was literally, one of the best restaurant experiences we’ve had in Sacramento. My wife and I really enjoy dining out and it’s not often we find a place like Tower Bridge Bistro that has all the best qualities and attributes of a great restaurant working together so very well. (Ambiance, Service, Food).
It was easy to maneuver our way to the restaurant from 50 to J street, to 3rd, then down Capital Mall, with a quick left into the Embassy Suites just before Tower Bridge. Parking became immediately convenient with on-site valet parking. The restaurant is located inside an Embassy Suites and this hotel chain really knows how to wow its customers with an inviting great lobby that not only has fine art, sculptures and beautiful architectural views, but also many conveniences and amenities for the hotel guests as well.
The location and views from Tower Bridge Bistro are outstanding as they are located near old town Sacramento, on the river directly adjacent to the famous Tower Bridge. Inside, the decor is very classy with fine woods and stone work thru out. Beautiful views from nearly every table are afforded by the floor to ceiling glass walls that look out to river and the bridge. We can’t wait to go back during the summer to dine on their outdoor patio.
We were greeted and seated immediately and met by our waiter David, who proved to be a very knowledgeable and gracious gentleman who made our dining experience all the better with his culinary knowledge, fast service and excellent recommendations including wine pairings.
After ordering some wine and perusing the menu we decided on a few items and entree’s to share together so we could get a good sampling of what Tower Bridge Bistro had to offer.
The French onion soup, the roasted quail and spinach salad, the scallop and shrimp appetizers , the seared duck breast and beef tenderloin entree’s and even the decadent chocolate mousse dessert that we tried were all prepared to perfection, and exceeded our expectations. All the ingredients were fresh and colorful and the sauces and sides were well thought out and worked very well together. Everything we tasted was top notch. Our compliments to the chef! We cannot say enough how excellent all the food was that we were served.
I highly recommend trying the scallops appetizer, the French onion soup, and the beef tenderloin, but really, no matter what you order, I am sure it will taste great.
To summarize our experience at the Tower Bridge Bistro: the location is great, the ambiance fantastic, service excellent and the food outstanding.
We have found a new favorite restaurant in Sacramento and we plan to go back often.
