We had to wait over an hour for our entrees to arrive because the kitchen kept on burning what we asked for. The server said that they were having too much trouble making it so they took that item off the menu and our meal would be on the house; which was a good save. Not a fan of the salmon benny, too bitter for some reason.
Great experience, and service under these circumstances.
Hi, and thank you for the excellent review. I really appreciate the positive comments. We hope to see you again during the holiday season. Cheers.
There are four parts to Bridges - I like them all - the outside deck is amazing on warm days, the Up stairs is great for viewing and the Bar is intimate for great chats by the fire, and the Bistro is great fun, nearly the deck with warmth! Bridges has been an institution for decades and the staff tell me there is plans to renovate post COVID! So it will be extra excellent in the future!
The upper level was very beautiful and quiet. Recommend for a date night!
Bridges’ COVID protocols are exceptional. It was lovely to have an elegant lunch out while feeling totally comfortable outside of our own home.
Great deals for Happy Hour and a spectacular view!
Excellent night! Staff was super friendly and accommodating ( we added a new guest ( family). Service was quick and waitress was very attentive and on the ball. Thanks for a great experience!
Food was average, service good, no rush to go back except for beers
Bridges staff are diligent in following all the required COVID-19 protocols for restaurants. We felt very comfortable at our well-spaced indoor table. All staff work masks all the time, and the food service met all the sanitation protocols.
The staff were welcoming and friendly, and we were not rushed with our leisurely dinner.
It was great! I was happily surprised by the salmon that is usually dry in other restaurants, but this one was juicy and delicious, with good sauce!
Mussels were good as well. Nice view on the boats.
Only bad thing is that I booked a table 8 hours in advance and specified to get a table close to the windows, we had to wait 15-20 to get that table instead of a basic table at the entrance. Apart from that it was great!
Well organized with pandemic safety in mind. Mushroom frittata at brunch was delicious. Friendly and attentive server. As always, beautiful views of the water.
Service was good, food was good, everything about the dinner was good except they brought me the bill with the cancelled item at the end. Though she quickly fixed it after I pointed it out. Online menu idea was great as well. With Covid-19 situation it is sometimes not preferable to touch the physical menu especially when we do not know how often they sanitize it. It is a minor issue but tables were too sticky as well which wasn’t ideal.
The reason I only gave 3 stars for service is not necessarily because of the server I had, but because of the response we received over the phone after I left. After I left I realized I have left my mask(hand-made) at the table so I called them, and asked them if they could check the table for me. They checked and said they could not find anything on the table, and nothing was turned in. I knew it has to be in the restaurant so as I was heading back, I asked my girlfriend to call again and this time she asked for the server we had during our stay. The person on the phone told me she might have left already for the day. She asked us if we wanted her to check if she is still around so we said yes. She put us on hold, and we waited for like 15 minutes on the phone until someone else picked up the phone who had no idea why we were on hold. Luckily I was able to get back to the restaurant(while we were still on holds) and found the server. She asked around and later manager came back to me with the mask. I was thankful that they kept the mask for me, but the service we received on the phone wasn’t great. I still gave 3 stars because I love the restaurant, and the service while on the restaurant is always great, but it seems like whoever was on the phone didn’t really care about my concerns. They said they didn’t have anything turned in, but they had my mask. They said the waitress might have left already, but she was serving the same table when I entered the restaurant.
Except for that experience on the phone, everything was great.
First visit for brunch. Food was great and our server, Cassidy, was friendly, very knowledgeable and very attentive.
A very nice experience. Thank you, Cassidy, for making it one I'd recommend.
What a wonderful way to spend a gorgeous afternoon day in Vancouver! Right on the patio near the water; watching the amazingly incredible yachts that go by! And the views~!
Great food and happy hour!
The deck at Bridges is a great spot when the weather permits. The menu is varied, the food well prepared and presented. The wait staff is pleasant, efficient and friendly.
We had a very nice lunch for two, seated inside beside an open door. Great service and food and good social distancing protocols. Thanks.
Bridges is one of my favourite restaurants to dine outside with unparalleled views, excellent food choices, great service and expected prices given the location. My friends and I frequent if for lunch dates, birthdays and just plain "made up" occasions.
My Beyond meat burger was served cold and without ketchup even though I specifically requested ketchup. The problems were remedied promptly but it would have been nice to eat at the same time as my husband. He said his meal was fine but not spectacular. The location is great!
Second time this summer and loved it as much as first time.
Thank you so much for coming back to visit us again! Please feel free to join us throughout the fall, possibly for Weekend Brunch?! See you again soon.
Great place! Tuna burger excellent as well as cocktails!
Cat was very nice! She seemed very genuine. And view was awesome.
Thank you very much for the kind words for us and for Kat. I will definitely pass along your comments to her. Please visit us again for the fall!
It’s been my happy pleasure to dine on Bridges patio, twice this summer. Everything is set up to make you feel safe & cared for. The food is delicious and the staff top notch!
Barbara, thank you for your kind words for our service and care. I appreciate the review and I hope you find a chance to visit us through the fall!
We loved our waitress Anna
Thank you for the awesome review for us and for Anna in particular! I hope you get the chance to visit us all again very soon.
Nice, large, spacious patio.
Thank you very much for your visit and for the positive review!
My only criticism is of the practice of taking away the plate from one or more of the people at the table before everyone has finished eating. It seems to happen at many restaurants these days, and it shouldn’t, because it makes the ones who haven’t finished feel rushed.
Beautiful view on the waterfront. Staff are very helpful and follow all Covid guidelines.
Parking currently is free which makes this a central meeting place.
It was a beautiful clear day in Vancouver and the view sitting on the balcony at Bridges was second to none! The service and food were good, as well as adherence to the Covid 19 procedures....but that view reminds us of why we want to live in such a beautiful city.
Awesome company, food, service, weather and ambience.
Free parking on Granville Island was a bonus.
Would love to do this at least once more before summer’s end.
The ambience is wonderful - sitting out by the water, how can it not be. There is a decent selection on the menu Nd the food is good, but I would t say it’s great.
Great service! Safe COVID protocols are evident.
It was great yet the sun was in our eyes and the umbrellas could not be adjusted so we had to move tables. One of the umbrellas was broken according to the server, so I suggest that you fix them so that the shading can be adjusted.
We had a reservation, when we arrived we were seated right away. Great service, nice and clean and the food was amazing!
Very good food and lovely setting.
Very pleasant service.
I thought the food would have been better, a bit unkempt outside on the patio for the prices. Just didn’t seem as upscale as I thought it would be.
Bridges is a favourite restaurant. Had not been there since the pandemic. The restaurant met all safety criteria in a pleasant manner. Terrific meal as always.
Great food, lovely ambience, and the server was engaging and professional. Wonderful meal.
Brunch was ok but not the best choice in the city. But the view can't be beat. Servers all took social distancing seriously.
The food was so good and the atmosphere was great. We sat outside on the patio. We all had a good time. The service was great. Our server was amazing, she was so accommodating with our puppies. Overall we had a great time
After we were seated at a table for 25 minutes without any one serving us I went to the front of house to ask what was wrong and was told that the wait staff would be with us right away. 5 minutes after that we were told that the person whose section we were in was let go early and so we had to move tables. After that things improved, however someone new came and sat in the same table we were sitting at and received their food before us so why did we have to move? We ended up waiting for 45 minutes before being able to place our drinks and starters order and not even a manager came over to our table to apologise for the mess up.
