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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
