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.

The bridges I recall from a few years ago was a vibrant, lively, well-dressed, upscale crowd/place. I always had a great time and amazing food. When dine out would start, we would select Bridges as one of our options.

The atmosphere in Bridges this time around was a very stark contrast to what I remember, partially due to the pandemic and maybe some % due to change in the vibe of the place??

The real disappointment was the food, it wasn't the high-quality food I remember having there before. The food was 1/5, there can be significant improvement in this area.

If I see a newer review in a few months saying things have improved, I would consider going back. I have so many great memories there and it would be a shame for such an iconic place end up like this.

It was unfortunate that management had not thought to put more staff on for the Dine Out as the waiter was very busy and the kitchen could not keep up. There were several complaints from tables around us and it wasn't the staff's fault yet they were the receivers of ill feelings.

Took a girl I like here for our second date, she loved the food and I loved the company. Definitely a recommendation for any guy or gal looking for a place to eat for date night. The menu may be a little expensive (average prices for similar restaurants) but the food is good and they are very COVID friendly.

I was very disappointed at the complete lack of decor, plants, pictures, anything to make the room inviting and/or attractive. Service was adequate but not warm and attentive. My friend ordered eggs Benedict and had to return the order TWICE because it was served cold. And then she was charged for it on top of that. Of course, we refused to pay. Very sad from when Bridges used to be one of the best places to go in Vancouver. Was a destination point. .

There were multiple items on the menu that they did not have available. Towards the end of our meal, the quality of service declined drastically. It seemed as though they were short staffed for the day.

Enjoyed the meal. It was devine eso the aji tuna taco.
All the meals we had (lingcod bowl. Ahu tuna burger and crab cakes. Triple chocolatr cake) were delicious. Priced as expected. House red wine was perfect. We sat right away where we wanted to sit. You can see the city view wherever you sit. Great service. Would love to dine here again. Highly recommended.

The spicy tuna sandwich was not spicy and it was completely raw. The waiter did ask if we are okay with it being pink because it is "a little war in the middle" but it completely raw! The sandwich had no taste, I could see some sort of a sauce in it but could not taste anything.

We were specifically asked if we wanted to book a table outdoors or indoors, we chose outdoors but found out they have completely removed all tables in the balcony and outdoor area and so our only option was indoors. The outdoor sitting area is the only reason we chose bridges in the first place and despite it being in Feb, it was a sunny warm day.

Upstairs was not busy, had to ask for window seat. Group of 9 came in wearing t shirts and ball caps..wtf ...not classy....so much for a dress code... I No vegetables with steak and fries..how cheap is that!.left the tails on the shrimp for seafood , riggatone...should not have to use my hands to eat pasta. We have gone every year. Dressed up nice , enjoyed the view. But never again, service was lackluster. Ambiance not there anymore, Food quality sub par. I felt like calling to complain the next day. But instead ill take my business elsewhere.

Bridges restaurant is at a nice location, however they could do alot with the location they are situated in. My first experience was communication with Chris on reserving the table was really good and he made sure that a table was reserved; upon entering the restaurant, the staff were also polite and helpful. Ambiance of the REstaurant - the windows definitely need cleaning and the chairs need to be upgraded especially for downstairs sitting. We noticed that a stack of better chairs were stored away in a space near the ceiling and that could have used for the downstairs sitting. I order a seafood food - cannot recall the name but it was like a soup with a mixture of seafood - fish, mussles and prawns. These came cold and without the Foccacia bread. I called the server to say the bread was missing but nothing came. We were wanting to have a dessert, but with the cold food and no bread, we decided to leave. It was also out anniversary. However the Manager on Duty, I believe her name was Mandy, she took the dinner charges upon herself and apologized for the serving. So I feel the staff are doing the best, but if the Chef and the Owner are not upto the par, there will be more disappointed customers.

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.
