Our server was extremely lovely! Food was delish. 100% recommend the calamari and waygu sandwich!

But their current espresso right now, omg! It’s delish I almost went for a third serving 😍

Brought my partner there the next day just for the espressos!

Very cute place, can envision it being much more lively after covid.

Found this gem on TripAdvisor. Will definitely be BACK! The ambience was awesome, the service was energetic and excellent, the food excellent. Our favorite part though was the cocktails, they are the reason for my 5* rating. The whole table enjoyed the drinks immensely and was very impressed with the cocktail menu.

Welcome SOP need to be polish,,, as long as I come in they ask me what is the pick up number ?? ;-)

No hello, no welcome
May be I do look like a door dash guy - even though I have no warmer bag in my hand

Anyhow my guest did arrived early, May be this kind of things make them puzzle, no body on time these days

Food wise it’s ok, burger it’s burger, not too many people will spend a lot of work or energy into something that you cannot sell a lot of money for

I have had the best burger, and I have had the worst burger in my life

I would say they are in the average ground

Excellent experience all around. I've been here before, but I think we're all a little more critical during these times. Their COVID protocols were very comforting, the service was very good and the food was very tasty.

Me and my friend sat on the lounge side and it was a 10/10 experience. Unfortunately I can’t remember my servers name but she was incredible, we were her last table I believe. It was one of the best dining experiences I’ve had in a very long time!

Great visit at The Briggs Kitchen + Bar as usual. Staff were friendly and our server was attentive.

Our calamari appies were good and so are the lobster gnocchi and seared salmon. Diners are spaced out nicely and everyone was wearing masks - making it a safe option for dining in.

Went here for valentines day and the menu did not disappoint. The lobster Gnocchi was delicious as well as the lobster bisque. The salmon was cooked to perfection and risotto was on point. Only thing I would have to say it was a bit chilly in the restaurant.

One of our favorite spots; the food is always first rate and the wine selection is great. They did their best as it appeared they were short staffed.
Understandable.

We came to Briggs to celebrate a birthday. Erin (?) our server was so friendly and fun, she made the experience really good! The food was presented nicely, but almost all of our meals lacked flavour. Would love to go back to try other dishes another time!

has been a go to place in past but very disappointing to see Briggs replace the halibut burger with cod. We used to come just for that menu item but not sure we will again. Not nearly as good!

Great food
Basically no vegetarian or vegan options though..
Hated our table with a passion. A 1x1 square partially cut off by an awkward metal bar on the other side of a servers water station. Come on. There was one other table in the entire restaurant and we got sat there. That table shouldn’t even exist. Server was amazing! Service was prompt and fun and I could have talked to her all day! Food was really really good and my wine was definitely fresh!! But as silly as it sounds, the table ruined it for me.
