Great high touch service and excellent food. A great spot!
Service was nice.
Tomahawk steak was very rare. When she explained, will serve as medium, but it was super rare.
Calamari was actually squid. So if you don’t mind please change the name of the menu.
First time diner. Loved it. Cod sandwich and braised short rib - amazing! Service was perfect. We’ll definitely go back soon.
Hello RoslynB, Thank you so much for your kind review! We're so pleased that you enjoyed your meals and that you got to enjoy the level of service that we proudly deliver at Briggs. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future
The atmosphere of the dinner was not as good as expected, considering that it spent about $250 for 2 adults. The taste was more excellent than I expected but It was disappointing that the food cooled down quickly.
Thank you so much for your review. We're sorry to hear that the ambiance did not quite meet expectations but we're happy that the food was well enjoyed. We wish you all the best and thank you again
Another excellent dinner out with the family. Excellent service, even though it was a bit busy for the day and time. Super friendly server! Excellent cocktails. Food was great and when we asked for some finishing salt, we got finishing salt and not just table salt. Impressed!
Hello Adebisi, Thank you so much for your kind review. We're so pleased to see that your family enjoyed their experience with us at Briggs. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon
Great food and service!

Outstanding, attentive and appreciative service. We ordered a bunch of small plates for 15 of us. Everyone thought the food was delicious. All their vegetable dishes especially were scrumptious.
Hello Suzun, Thank you so much for your kind review! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your service and meals and we look forward to welcoming you back
Great food, hearty portions. Seem a little understaffed, server's were working very hard. Recommended!

Our party grew from 8 to 14 and the staff were amazing. They found a larger space and moved us so we could be comfortable. The service was friendly, food service was quick, and the food was excellent.
Hello, Thank you so much for your review. We are so pleased to hear that your experience was excellent even with your change in group size. We always strive to offer this level of service and we are happy to hear that you enjoyed. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Menus was different than what was posted on their website. Limited choices - no pasta. Waitress through out 2 doggie bag meals. Steaks were cold.
Hello Heather, Thank you so much for your review, and for providing us with the opportunity to learn and improve.

In regards, to the menu, I have investigated further and can confirm that the menu on our website is identical to the one we offer in person. All the best, Briggs management

Hello BenfromKensington, Thank you so much for your lovely review! We're so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your shared meal with your group. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.
Not bad but somehow was expecting a little more. My food was yummy but my husband food was burnt a bit. Very loud place.
Hello, Thank you for your review. We'd love to hear a little more about what you were expecting as we are always open to the opportunity to improving. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your food. The noise levels can pick up a little on busier evenings, the evening you visited was our busiest night of the month. We apologize if this affected your experience as it certainly is not our usual ambiance. All the best, Briggs management
Great food. Great service. Little noisy.
Menu has good options including some tasty gluten free choices.
Hello Olla, Thank you so much for your review. We're so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your food, service and experience. We certainly had a busy month which can lead to the noise levels picking up, but we're glad to see this didn't affect your evening. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future.
Dinner before Flames game with clients. I’m always looking for a great place to have dinner before the game that’s close to the Saddledome. While the service was great, the kitchen did not deliver. Two of us ordered the short rib (which was delicious) served on a shredded potato patty. While the other one was borderline burnt, mine was black and should never have been served. You know that burnt toast smell and taste? This was 10x worse. The server said they could do up a new one but I pointed out that with everyone else already served and eating, what would be the point? The kitchens response was also that this was the way it was supposed to be! Calling “bull …”
It would have gone a long way for the kitchen to acknowledge their mistake but instead they’ve guaranteed that I won’t be back with clients for Flames games.
Hello KimMarie, Thank you for your honest review. We apologize that your experience has made you feel like you should not return as it sounds like everything else was enjoyed. We do utilize an open fire oven to cook which does add a char. As always, if our guests are not completely satisfied we are always happy to make things right. We are sorry that we did not have the opportunity to do so for you. We wish you all the best
Service left much to be desired. Kind servers; however simply not attentive. Timing of dishes ordered / served was way off. Took far too long to receive cocktails and our food. Servers were apologetic however that didn’t change the experience. Perhaps an off-night.
Hello, Thank you so much for your review. We are sorry that your experience was not up to our usual standard. We'd be happy for the opportunity to welcome you back to make things right!
From the atmosphere to the food Briggs is outstanding. The service is attentive without being annoying (difficult balance) and always friendly. Briggs is truly one of the best spots for a meal in Calgary

Overall I’ve always had a good experience with Briggs, however they had a large group and were understaffed. The first burger arrived and was nearly room temperature, but they re-fired and the second one was excellent, as usual.
Our server was amazing. Great service and food was excellent
Thank you for your review, we are happy that you enjoyed your service and food! We look forward to having you back again soon.
Excellent! I always love Briggs. Food is wonderful, prices are great, atmosphere and interior are nice! Staff is attentive and I definitely recommend.
Thank you for your review AndreaJ, we are happy to hear you continue to enjoy your experience with us. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon
Great menu with creative creations! The lobster poutine was amazing! The Josper oven makes everything taste amazing.
We appreciate your review and are happy to hear you enjoyed your lobster poutine. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
I would probably skip the tomahawk steak. Just too over done and definitely not enough for 2 people but had good taste. Definitely pass on the dessert. The Apple crumble was way too big and tasted starchy and just lacked in flavor, also it needed more ice cream. It was the smallest portion ever. Amazing service! Very attentive but I would probably not go again.
Hi Natalie, we really appreciate your feedback and are happy to hear about the amazing service! We are sorry to hear that the Tomahawk didn't quite meet your expectations, we would love the opportunity to see you again and make it right for you. As for our desserts, we are always working on improving our recipes thanks to the honest feedback we receive. We hope to see you again soon to try more of our tasty menu options. All the best, Briggs Management

Hi StaceyC, we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your evening with us. We appreciate your feedback and look forward to seeing you again soon!
Heather was our server and was an absolute delight! Some of the drinks are little unusual. I had the Dark Old Fashioned and it didn't resemble the original drink at all. The food all came out nice and hot. We had the calamari as an appi, which was delicious. For my main I had the tenderloin and it was perhaps the best I've ever had!! This was our first time at the restaurant and I'll certainly be coming back.
Hi Richard, we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience and we will be sure to pass your kind words along to Heather. We appreciate your feedback about the calamari and tenderloin and are delighted to hear that it's the best you've ever had! We look forward to seeing you again in the near future.
