Bridgette is one of my favourite lunch spots to bring clients, friends, and out of town guests. The variety of types of sharing plates and thoughtful , delicious items means all palates can be satisfied. On this particular occasion, we included among our choices the disappointing chicken sausage pizza. It sounded so good but the sausage was flavourless and the sauce on the pizza was actually a bit yucky. So unlike Bridgette!

The concept is "sharing," which we usually see with many small plates offered. In this case, the mains are designed to share as well. You can craft a meal from small plates or mains and add sides (potatoes, vegs). Bring your appetite. Everything we had was excellent -- especially the roasted half-duck (the creamed corn polenta was incredible).

I LOVE the decor, which gave it a cool, cozy, interesting vibe. Mid-century, industrial, farm house eclectic mix. The staff was friendly and efficient, knowledgeable. We had someone with but allergies with us and they were great! I had a wonderful experience and thoroughly enjoyed my birthday!!

Four great old friends meeting for a mid-week lunch.....all meals were outstanding!!...appetizers, mains, beverages were just great...the only improvement I would recommend is adding a small salad ...of any description, there are no 'greens' that we could enjoy or split...otherwise, we were delighted with our experience...

Maybe I was expecting too much after all the hype. Service was excellent but other than that it was all very ordinary. surely you can do better than two tiny springs of basil on a Margherita Pizza. Il Post, just around the corner does!

First time at Bridgette Bar. We ordered lots of plates to share, but nothing off the large plate menu. Everything we tried was delicious. Had a drink at the bar first. Service at bar was very nice, bar staff were pleasant and chatty. Our server was also great, very helpful with our selections as we had someone with food allergies. Enjoyed the fact that the staff was not overly pretentious as sometimes happens with trendy places!!

We have been here a few times and enjoy the food. The owners need to do something about noise level. Hard to hear across the table. They also need to revisit the Dessert list. The banana cream pie is more meringue than filling. Less than adequate to be honest. We will return as they menu is varied and suits our tastes.

This was the perfect spot for the girls and I. We celebrated a birthday and it was hoppin' and the food was amazing. Plenty of cocktails to choose from. Loved that the plates were shareable and DELICIOUS. The roasted cauliflower with harissa was amazing as was the beef- highly recommend. Will definitely go back!
