My boyfriend and I went for a date night, the food was creative and delicious. Great selection for a foodie. It came out fast and the service was great, always topping up water but never hovering. We were expecting to splurg for a date night but after 2 appetizers, and side veg and a pasta dish, we were full and the bill only came to $60 before tip. Great food and ambiance for that price.

Excellent Food, would definitely go back.

As it is in an old brick building, dress warm as it was very chilly. Other than that it was a great evening.

Awesome date night. Accommodated my dietary needs beautifully and loved the shared, family-style dinner. A favourite place for sure!

I have a number of dietary restrictions that many restaurants find impossible to accommodate - but Bridgette Bar has always made it happen without making me feel like an inconvenience.

Great dining experience with an amazing food and drink great menu(s). Service was great from the time I entered to the time I left. I was greeted by friendly faces and shown right to my table (had a reso). I also love the fact that they had coat check. I’m not a fan when your coat dangles on the floor. Our waiter was very friendly and extremely helpful with the menu. Food was delicious!!! Definitely going back!

I was looking forward to a Bridgette Bar Business light lunch. Opted for Avocado on toast. I'm a gluten free (foodie) and so requested GF bread. Was told that Gluten Free products were 'terrible' and since Brigitte Bar makes their own products they have decided not to offer any GF options for bread/buns. Interesting point of view and not helpful for celiac's looking for lunch. My choices were pretty limited so I ended up with Brussels sprouts. Disappointing.

Great food. Attentive service. Had some unique cocktails which were very good. It is pretty loud so be prepared to speak up if you want to chat. Had a small issue with the bill but it was fixed immediately without any concern. Highly recommend. Make a reservation. Might not get in if you don’t.

Food was OK. It was loud and they sit people very close to each other. I was entertained by the couples conversation sitting next to me. I booked this table a month in advance and was expecting a better table. All in all a trendy place, food was good, but don't go there if you want any privacy.

Great date spot, sharing plates have a good portion size and are all very rich in flavours. Beer selection is proper (draughts) and the service was excellent. I recommend this place to all my friends!

Service was quick but waiter was awkward. Server did not introduce himself nor explain anything, rather just jumped into "hey did you have a chance to look at your menu?" Waiter was relatively personality-devoid.

Loved the expeditors that brought out the food. They explained the dishes and they had character. Front door staff were quick to take our jackets and friendly for seating.

Food itself was delicious. Had garlic bread, octopus, carpaccio, lamb and the toffee pudding for dessert. Found drinks were overpriced for what they were...beer is a good benchmark and was easily 25% more expensive than a similar high end restaurant.

Delicious food, great wine list, best service in all of Calgary! I give this restaurant 5 out of 5 stars. I can’t say enough how amazing the service at this restaurant was. Hands down the best I have experienced in Calgary. Loved it so much we are going to take friends there in 2 weeks.
