Our service was amazing, the food was absolutely outstanding. We shared roughly 7 dishes between 6 people and we all were happy with the options we had. Drinks were delicious and we were provided wonderful recommendations from our server.

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.

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.

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.

I am
Usually very pleased with the food. This time the soup was served lukewarm. The server offered to reheat it. She returned with the same bowls of soup we in Soweto microwaved. We have no
Idea if the same bowls were given to the right guests. That should not have happened. New bowls should have been
Offered. The Caesar salad had no pigment no green. It was almost white and had some “rust” type marks. We would expect nice green romaine for the price. It was quite shocking to see such off lettuce being served. After the soup incident we didn’t bother complain out the lettuce. Disappointed

The food was super buttery, pretty heavy for a simple pasta with seafood.
To be extremely honest, this place has already been a lot better. It's sad to see it the way it is now...

Dining at Briggs Kitchen was delightful. We had great service and the food and drinks were amazingly good. We were on the patio and the motorcycle traffic on 10th Avenue was annoying, but we did choose to go on a Sunday evening of a long weekend.

We have been going to Briggs for years, and have always had a lovely dining experience. We often take visiting friends and family here for supper, and celebrate occasions here. However last night was the last time we will come to Briggs. I am a celiac, and know that eating out is always a risk. Usually we tend to eat more than one meal when we go out, so usually when I get cross contaminated I do not blame Briggs. But it turns out last night I had the best server ever (and we have had the management serve us countless times) and she informed me that the meal I have been eating is in fact MARINATED in glutenous marinade. So regardless of the substitutions I was constantly being fed an allergen. Due to this negligence between previous servers and the fact that my meal (probably my most favourite thing to eat) CANT be made GF at all…. We won’t be returning. We will continue to recommend to friends without allergies, however anyone with any sort of allergy should stay very far away from this place. In 2021, the menu should be clearly labeled with allergens, and if not, the serving staff and kitchen should be informed. Thank you to our lovely server last night, I’m sorry I don’t know your name but you saved me a lot of heck for the next few days to come.

First time. Not the largest menu , but wide enough selection to please about anyone , including plates under 30$

Generous serving. Tasty well cooked short ribs , slightly over seared potato pancake. Lobster gnocchi sauce is the best seafood sauce I had in years. Definitely made with rich cream and lots of flavour. No compromise made by the kitchen crew. Cocktails well executed. ( real egg white in the Sour)

Enthusiastic service. Good vibe. Nice venue. Definitely recommend.

Briggs is our favourite restaurant. They are experiencing a small growing pain with a lot of new staff, but they are almost back to 100%! We had a lovely dinner with our server Ellis, and we are looking forward to going back. As we are returning customers, we know exactly how each meal tastes, so we are patient for the new kitchen staff to find their rhythm with the existing menu.

We had a great night with two of our friends. It happened to be right before they lift the mask restrictions and we walked in w/o masks and felt so liberated because it wasn't enforced upon us. Our server was helpful and pleasant. They weren't busy so we had their full attention pretty much.
