This is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. It has great vibes and the staff is always great. Food is consistent which is important. The efficiency and how long it takes to get you food varies. A couple times I've been now it took too long for our food to come. The sttaff are always giving us an update to our orders which is nice.

Great time. Only major con was the carpaccio which was overpowered by the horseradish. The piece of meat was also 1 piece which made sharing challenging. Also a touch on the pricey side (excluding drinks)

The Ricotta dumplings were a big hit at our table. Do suggest

Bridgette Bar was our favourite restaurant before we moved away from Calgary for two years. Just moved back and finally managed to go again for my partner’s birthday and it was as amazing as we remembered. The food is incredible and the atmosphere is super cozy despite having quite a large footprint. We strongly recommend the sprouts with maple and the rainbow trout. Bridgette Bar has firmly remained our favourite restaurant.

Great evening, best dishes were carrot starter and lamb main. Atmosphere was very lively but could still carry on a conversation. Service was very good , attentive but not intrusive.

We went for a date but it was so loud we had to scream at each other. The food is always very good and the banana pie was amazing. My tea arrived in a handle-less mug which was neat, but almost impossible to drink because the mug got extremely hot. Order cocktails instead because they’re amazing. Would recommend going earlier in the week if you want to avoid the noise.

Overall found the service to be a bit impersonal and food to be a bit slow. Would have liked for the large dish to be served alongside the vegetables.

We had such amazing service. We were only drinking water with our dinner and our server never let our glasses get below half.

Still thinking about the garlic bread and how I would like it again tonight.

Another amazing experience at Bridgette, this time with the in-laws who said it was the best meal they've had since moving to Calgary a month ago.
Thanks to all at Bridgette for treating us so well and with the management and team a very Happy New Year.

I was disappointed that I specifically stated it’s a birthday dinner for my husband who’s had a very tough year and if they could make his birthday dinner special. They literally did absolutely nothing but made us feel rushed to finish our meal and leave. I even asked our waitress why other tables had a happy birthday card and we didn’t when I requested something special to be done. She said she would look into it and literally did nothing. Super disappointed! I wish we went elsewhere.

Lucky finding a parking spot. Great customer service. Time between order and food arrival fast. Waitress admitted pressing the wrong button for the pizza but was corrected in less than 5 minutes. The food taste was ok but for a large plate, the lamb portion was less than expected. The meal was a gift and I may go back for a dessert.
