Bridgette Bar
Bridgette Bar
(1164)
$$$$
American | Downtown, Calgary

What a gem of a place! The food is creative and very flavorful. The service is outstanding with a strong team approach to satisfying customers. The shared plate concept works well here with both large and small plates to share. The large plate duck dish is incredible. The asparagus side was surprisingly original with it being topped with pureed avocado mixed with capers and sliced cornichons. Honestly the least memorable item was the oysters even though they were also creative with their sides. If every in Calgary again, I will return to Bridgette Bar. More

The staff are very attentive and provide excellent recommendations. Food is very tasty, however I found the amount of fish in my sushi rolls a bit underwhelming. I had the unagi and spicy tuna rolls; not much seafood within. The tempura vegetables were excellent. Kind of crazy that a sushi restaurant charges for hot sauce too - I’ve had better sushi for better value elsewhere. More

My husband and I go to Mill st alot! It always ends up being our go to if we can't figure out where to go. You can't beat all day Happy hour on sundays! Food is good, beer is great and the atmosphere of the place is what always gets us! One thing I would change, being in the industry myself, the servers lack of urgency. I understand sometimes they have to pour their own beer, but we've dealt with a lot of servers that just take their sweet time. They're always friendly, never rude, so it's never bad, just slow.
