Staff, food and company was outstanding. Waitress did excellent job at picking cocktails to compliment our food and to choose the order to bring out the plates.
Banquette seating was too low for table. Made for awkward eating.
Noise level was uncomfortable and it was impossible to hear the waitress at the start of our meal.

We had our girls Christmas dinner there. Had drinks,
Applies and dinner. During our little gift exchange one gal made homemade cookies as a gift. Gift was opened and one gal tried a piece. Our server came over immediately and proceeded to tell us we would be charged for bringing in outside food. The whole approach was rather classless and embarrassed the gal. It would have been one thing if we ordered water and 1 appy or we brought in a big dessert and started cutting it up and serving it to everyone, which didn’t happen. Other then that. Great place and great food!

Great service. Very busy. Trendy and loud. Very tasty food and cocktails. Our favourites were the Thirty-six Views cocktail, the stuffed garlic bread, lamb sausage, and braised rabbit on toast.

Service was great. Steak was way over done. I asked for rate and I got medium. So did others at the table. Manager was very apologetic and took care of it. But this was the 3rd time in 3 visits that this happened. Otherwise, still on of my favourite places in terms of service and people that work there.

We were a group of friends who hadn’t met in a while. We wanted to relax, chat, and enjoy a glass of wine before ordering. About 30 minutes in, we were told that there was a time limit and they would need our spot for another reservation at a certain time. Needless to say this put a feeling of needing to rush. If there are time limits to enjoying a dinner out with friends, we should probably look elsewhere.

Great as usual but was disappointed they ran out of one of the Mushroom|Truffle specials as we were really looking forward to the dumplings as posted on IG. Also, between the three of us none of us liked the octopus fennel dish.

Normally I love the food here but this particular night it was just ok. My real issue was with having to wait for a table even though I had a reservation... to be fair it was late and probably one of the last seatings and people ahead of us were lingering at the table, but that made it more difficult to wait for a meal when we were so hungry.

Love the brussel sprouts!

Get the Garlic Bread. I don't care what other amazing things you get you MUST have that as well. If you are having trouble figuring out what you want, you can always ask the server and they will recommend their faves-helpful because some items do change seasonally.

I was told the main meal portions were large and to share. I was VERY disappointed with the pickerel dish that we ordered for $39. In no way was that enough for us to share. We also decided to try the rabibit from the appetizer section. It was served cold. Quite bland and reminded us of a tuna salad. We will not be going back or referring anyone.

Very nice room. Cozy and intimate spaces for date night.
The cocktail list is fun🍸🥃, the wine list is approachable and a fair value.🍷
You have got to try the carpaccio. It's fantastic.
We really enjoyed our night here, will be back for sure.😁

Server was very rude when I asked for vegan options. I had eaten at Bridgette 2 times previous with no problem finding several options and this time he was extremely rude about it saying “this is a French restaurant” with a laugh. Completely disappointed. There are plenty of people that are vegan or have other dietary restrictions . It is very outdated and closed minded to respond in this way.
