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 view is stunning on the patio, but that’s really all that was worth the visit. The service was below par, staff felt pretty apathetic and didn’t really care about being friendly… and we were dining for a Birthday celebration. They seemed more interested in rushing us to pay for the bill, before we even had the chance to look at it, or get our credit cards ready.
The food was also lacking in flavour, which was surprising, since I’ve had good meals at Bridges in the past.
Must admit, we were disappointed.

Not nearly as good as it used to be, food wise. My husband and I both ordered the cioppino and his piece of fish was twice the size of mine. I was okay with that, though, because it wasn’t terribly tasty. A meh meal that was saved by the very friendly wait staff.

I remember Bridges being classier (they even have a dress code). Based on this, I thought this would be a great place to take my mom for her birthday. However, the atmosphere is now more pub style. I would still enjoy that, but not for a nicer event. The calamari and halibut ciopinno was definitely not worth the price. The portions were meagre and we were hungry after. But I saw dishes at other tables like the burger and fish n chips that looked great and likely better value. Overall I would try Bridges again for casual dining, and ordering something else.

Service was extremely bad. Had to wait 10 minutes at table for a waiter and finally had to ask a server to get someone so we could order wine. Waited 20 minutes after drinks wine was served and again finally had to catch the waiter and ask if we could order. would not return.

Server came and asked if we were ready to order and we said we needed a few more minutes and she took off without asking if we wanted at least drinks. She came back a while later to take our food and drink order at once. Food was served to two of us of a party of four. We had to wait another good five minutes to receive the other two plates. My steak was cooked medium well when I had asked medium rare. I didn't mention it as I don't like to waste food. All in all our experience was just ok.

My husband and I were very disappointed of this restaurant. Our food was extremely overprice for the value. My hot seafood salad had brown pieces of lettuces and only 3 very small pieces of salmon for $27. My husband had the halibut and the tomato broth it was served in, tasted like it was from a can. Overall we weren't happy with the dinner and we won't be back.

The service was little slow getting started. Once they got organized our server was great.
The food was good, very good for essentially pub food. (not fine dining)

Excellent for a warm summer evening; lots of fun to see the aqua-cycles, SUPs, kayaks and sailboats bobbing around. Service was attentive and the PokeBowl was outstanding; reasonable value for money and good selection of draft beers. We will return!

The halibut, seafood linguini and all pizzas were unavailable. There were also a great deal of mosquitos so we had to move inside. However, the meals were tasteful (tuna burger and wild sockeye salmon) and the staff were accommodating to us moving back inside.

Had dinner last night on the patio. My hubby and I shared the prawn pesto pizza and each had the hot seafood salad, very refreshing on a hot day. Both yummy and will have us come back. Tanya our server was very good.

Service was very slow, and not much attention to our table from the server. I wouldn’t say it was extremely busy either, so it was surprising that we didn’t see more of our server.

Staff were very polite, however service was slow and food came all at once so my main was kinda cold by the time I finished my salad. Food was quite bland had very little flavour to it. Brownie was actually just chocolate cake it too was very bland gelato was good but by the time they brought it too me it had started to melt. Alcohol Drinks tasted bland as well watery fruit infused water at best. Everything did look very appealing but fell short on taste unfortunately.

Was disappointed in the quality of the food for an expensive meal.
I ordered shrimp and lobster linguine but only got a few bits of lobster…the pasta and sauce was bland and not much sauce.
I ask them to take it back and they did. I ordered a tuna burger which was OK with a Caesar salad and when the burger came it came with a regular salad. The waitress insisted on bringing me a Caesar salad but I was so hungry that I said no thanks.

The staff were friendly and courteous.

For starter, Granville Island is one of my most fave places in the city. Second, Bridges is probably one of my fave restaurants there. Third, every time I have out-of-town visitors, I love taking them here. So far, nothing but good experience, from food to service. Most importantly, nothing beats that view.

Unfortunately, when I made a reservation, I presumed we would be on the upstairs deck. When we arrived, they said that part of the restaurant was not open until later in the week. This should have been clarified at reservation time. The staff here is clearly unhappy and disinterested, the food is expensive for the quality and quantity. When 2 of us rec'd our meals, we asked for cutlery and napkins and I could see one waitperson make some snide comment to the one who mentioned it to her, as if it was stupid of us to ask. Why weren't those given out before the meal? Napkins should have arrived with our cocktail - at least the cocktail size. If this restaurant wasn't next to the water, I would think and hope it would be long gone. If you don't care how things taste or what they cost, it might be fine for a quick mid-day stop.

The halibut fish was very dry as though it had been frozen for a long time or over-cooked or both. Chips were good and the batter was nice and crispy.
