Bridgette Bar Ratings and Reviews
I’ve been here several times but was a little disappointed in the service and I was treating everyone and had raved about it was a little let down. Our plates were cleared and still had 4 more Appies to come then we only got one of the double order (7 people) so had to wait for the other appie. Large plates arrived while we were still eating Appies and the waiter told me that he was still serving them so a little rushed ... food was excellent though
Always fantastic service, excellent flavour, and great atmosphere. We love to sit at the kitchen window and watch the chefs!
We enjoyed the whole experience. Timing, service and food quality were all great. A definite must try.
Awesome all around! We need more of these in Calgary, awesome service, food, people, place. Thank you!
We had the most amazing Birthday celebration evening for my daughter and her husband.
I requested candles for desert, and a table that would allow us to bring gifts to open without disturbing other guests and we had the most perfect table, fantastic waitress, food to die for and a memorable evening !!!!! We felt like we were in a comfortable home environment with a gorgeous hip setting, incredibly delicious food , so special and we will share this fabulous experience with all of our friends!!!
Thanks, Brenda B
Fabulous menus, great service, reasonably priced!
Cozy atmosphere, and the perfect round table for 6!
Such a great place for a date night. Ambiance was lovely. Great drink selections. All of the food we had was awesome. The carpaccio was delicious, as was the smoked octopus. The cauliflower dish was quite tasty. And the lamb was cooked to perfection. Our favourite dish was the rather simple four cheese pizza with the shaved black truffle, it was a great mix of complimentary flavours, and it had that comfort food vibe we love. We definitely recommend this place for any occasion. And we will definitely be back to try more of the menu.
Have only been in for lunch on a couple of occasions and the service and food were outstanding. Ambiance is French themed and rustic, very warm and inspired.
Great food, ambiance and service. I've been here for birthday parties and business lunches, good for all occasions.
. Very friendly and informative server. She took the time to answered all of our questions.
. Relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere.
. Food temperature was good.
. Tuna appy was fantastic.
. Ling cod had a very fishy scent.
. Excellent cappuccino.
We had a truly wonderful time on all levels and will definitely go again. Our only negative was that it was really loud and sometimes hard to hear each other.
All aspects of the service were exceptional. The food was very good but the vegetable dishes weren't quite as amazing as at Ten Foot Henry's in my opinion. The tuna crudo and the octopus were fabulous.
Amazing food and selections and completely enjoy the farm-style sharing so you can experience more dishes.
Great Scene / atmosphere / energy... Interesting, and high quality menu - good variety - great cocktails and good wine selection.
Very good. My first time, but will not be my last.
This was my third time back at Bridgette and I plan to continue to book my special event dinners here. The food has been consistently amazing each time I visit - my mouth watering for the strip steak from the moment I make a reservation to the point of ordering. Service is also on point with staff being very knowledgable about the menu, happily giving their own personal recommendations. I'll be back :)
Had an absolutely fabulous evening with friends -- great food and atmosphere, and a wonderful server. (Thanks Sharla!)
Everything was wonderful, staff are kind and friendly and food is delicious!
Food and service was outstanding! We had a wobbly table and they had it fix in no time. Then came by later to make sure the table was still ok.
Great food loved the presentation. Had amazing service. It was a very loud restaurant.
The cocktails are very expensive, but tasty. I have been 3 times, and had some amazing dishes (Garlic bread, pasta) and a few average ones (Brussel sprouts, cauliflower)
Always a great dining experience, however, our reservation at 17h30 thru Open Table does not allow us to reserve the table we want.
Trendy locale just off downtown core. Ambiance, food and service all very good.
Been there twice. Both times were absolutely phenomenal! Food is unbelievable and service was fabulous. Would highly recommend!!
Awesome, the food is amazing.
Octopus, Rigatoni, Peppered Carrots- fantastic!
Server was wonderful. Comfortable relaxed atmosphere. Thoroughly enjoyed!
Our server Maddie was very knowledgeable and gave us great recommendations on the menu. Atmosphere was lively but not overpowering. Would definitely go back!
Ran out of some main meal entrees. Meals took longer than expected and restaurant was not overly busy at this time late in the evening
Great little spot, funky ambience.
It’s not based on Brigitte Bardot, names spelled differently. Good all the same. We’ll go back.
Had a wonderful 62nd birthday inner at Bridgette Bar. The moment we checked in the staff had a reserved table waiting for me complete with a birthday card. They came excellent cocktails and beer. An excellent bottle of wine at a good price and amazing food.
Our server was funny and had us laughing the entire nite. We even ended up ordering banana cream pie. Different than the usual version and fabulous!
We will definitely return.
Second time I have been there and both times have been excellent excellent. Servers provide helpful recommendations designed to enhance the experience while keeping the budget in mind! Beautiful building and energetic but relaxing atmosphere. Table spacing is such that one doesn't feel jammed in or conscious of privacy issues. Highly recommend.
I have been to Bridgette Bar twice and really enjoyed both times. Was disappointed with the guacamole toast though. And our server lingered too long at times, and completely disappeared at other times. (I found her texting in the back)
Food and wine were fabulous. Service was outstanding - went above and beyond expectations.
Went with my family; ages from 18 to 85 and everyone loved it!
It was a great dinner...great food, great service and I always love the vibe in the space.
Nice, fancy place in downtown. Bridgette has very good meals to offer. Everything is cooked to perfection and the desserts well executed. The service is not perfect though, pretty slow.
Great decor and excellent food! We’ll be back and we’ve already recommended.
We went for my birthday with our adult children. My husband is a celiac and they had delicious gluten free options for him. Love the concept of sharing plates so you don’t walk out over stuffed!
Amazing and very knowledgeable service, delicious food, and wonderful ambiance! Definitely would recommend and definitely will be back!
We chose this place based on recommendation from a friend and very glad we came! Reserved ahead for a birthday. Upon arrival we were greeted by many staff members directing us to the host stand. When seated, a friendly birthday card was presented, signed by staff (a lovely touch).
Our service was EXCELLENT (thank you Tyeesha). The place was pretty busy for a Wednesday but we never had an empty water glass, and food came in a timely fashion.
Between the two of us, we shared a small plate appetizer, a small snack (omg. Eggplant fries!), one meat dish, and two veggies, as well as one dessert. We were very full following, and felt that the services sizes were very adequate. Definitely more of a sharing portion for the items, however the pizza/pasta would likely be a good meal for one.
Would definitely return for a special occasion! It would be a bit pricey otherwise, but is a wonderful choice to treat yourself or for an occasion. I would recommend at least two but maybe four people to go and share a few items.
