Seafood
Bridges has a stunning location, overlooking the fishing boats in False Creek and the mountains of the North Shore. The second-floor dining room features a vaulted ceiling highlighting the original beams and trusses of this 1920&30s building, with floor to ceiling windows capturing every part of the view. The downstairs bistro and pub offer a casually elegant atmosphere, while the chef presents a menu featuring fresh seafood, rich meats and local produce. During the summer, our dock patio offers one of the best views of False Creek and the Burrard Bridge in Vancouver. Reservations are for the downstairs restaurant only.

We've always enjoyed Bridges, but now even more, having been "away" for so many months. The patio is spotless and my party of 3 seniors felt safe and pampered. Never a bad thing!
We ordered appetizers and mains, then shared a dessert. All excellent. Servers were friendly and helpful. Service was quick and very efficient.
The only glitch was when we passed out the appetizer plates, the middle plate was unwashed, with food remnants on the surface. We alerted our server (I apologize for not remembering her name) and shortly thereafter the manager came to apologize. We received a GI discount on our bill, which was also a good thing.
However, knowing how careful and diligent the management is working to keep things safe, it was surprising a used plate was amongst the clean ones. Thankfully we didn't touch or use the plate.....which could have been problematic.
I hope Bridges enjoys a fabulous summer, and we'll definitely be back!

We were so pleased with being able to make a reservation for an outside table for four people. The location of the table was perfect - great view and people watching and perfectly situated to catch the lovely breeze - were you guys in charge of the gorgeous weather too? So good to be back to a favourite place in Vancouver. Wonderful service as usual. You all make the experience so much better, thank you again!

I felt comfortable as we ate outdoors on the deck and the tables were well spaced.
Food was good and happy hour wine prices were a bonus.

When you make a reservation and you confirm by phone and you mentions special challenges and they are ignored it is off putting.

The burgers here are divine. However, the mussels we ordered were teeny tiny in the shell and definitely not worth the price. Seeing how miniscule they were, you would think the chef would throw in more mussells in the order. This wasn't the case. The entire order of mussels with the shells removed would have fit into a small metal condiment container they use for ketchup and other sauces.

Portions small (Warm caesar salad with fish); pizza dough was like cardboard. Slow service. ~ took over an hour to get our entrees. Nice view off the deck. If you go, order burgers (they looked good from our view of the tables near us).

This is a delightful spot - a mini spa meal! What can I say? They are organized, the space is open aired, the food is fine and I can watch seagulls, shitzus and ships pass by! Mostly kayaks. Thank you Bridges and staff!

The mussels were raw and not cooked we sent them back and it was my moms birthday so that was not good as that was her meal. We wanted to sit outside but there was no availability as it was starting to rain so we wanted an umbrella or a cover but there wasn’t any so we had to sit inside sorry will not be coming back I was very disappointed!

Bridges is an old neighborhood standby and a favourite for it's location and ambiance. The quality and the value of the food has declined badly so I don't recommend it if you are looking for good food and good views. Go for the views, have a beer or two and the Spinach Artichoke Dip, everything on the menu is overpriced and not good quality at all. The appetizers are your best bet if you need to eat. Service is ok, but not the best.

A little disappointed in that I booked for a special occasion and when we arrived were told that the upstairs was closed which is fine but there were no updates under the reservation. It states your special table will be on our upper floor dining area. The hosts was not very people friendly. He had no clue about our reservation either. Not one thing was mentioned throughout our dinner service about our special occasion. Overall disappointed. Wanted to recreate a special day and it turned out to be the opposite. If I had known that I would have gone to the keg and get better service with better food.

We sat on a very spacious deck looking at the water, the city and the people exploring tentatively the Granville Island area. It was very orderly with outstanding service and my salad was perfect with seafood lightly grilled. A slice of heaven at this time! Make your reservations for the terrace and feel safe and well cared for while toasting the view!
