We were here for our 10yr anniversary, service was good, food took a while to arrive, they were perfectly cooked but a bit on the salty side, overall would’ve been a 3* but the fact that the staff took an extra minute to sign a post card wishing happy anniversary makes them stand out, thus the 4*.

Always such good food and cocktails ! Waitress was a little rude and not helpful, not the best service I have ever gotten there. But it will not deter me from going back as I have had many good experiences there and enjoy the food and drink a lot !

Raquel is fabulous!! I’ll always come back for the octopus salad. We might suggest a few main meal options for people who are lactose intolerant. There’s not much to choose from there. Otherwise a fantastic experience as always.

This was our third visit to Bridgette Bar and were not disappointed with the food items. We shared 5 small plates. All of the items were unique and very flavorful. We found the octopus dish to be outstanding - the sherry vinaigrette made the dish. The eggplant fries and the beet salad were also standouts. Not on the same level as the food items was the wine list. Only 4 items were available by the glass, and none of them were agreeable to our palate. A Spanish or Portuguese offering by the glass would have been welcomed. Service was friendly and attentive. We very much enjoyed our visit and will return soon.

Bridgette has never disappointed. Our lunch (first in a restaurant since March 2020) was absolutely fabulous. I had the endive salad with blueberries and goat cheese and it was perfect, and then the rhubarb dacquoise dessert was definitely Michelin-star-worthy. Plus the service was brilliant.

Great atmosphere, stylish vibe. Staff was professional, very attentive and friendly!
We had a table for two and the rectangular tables are all turned so you are quite far away from each other. It is very loud in there and it’s tough to have a conversation or not hear the table next to you chat. But this place has some great individually designed seating areas that we will just request to be seated in more secluded area next time! Because the food was fantastic and so were the cocktails!

The service was extremely poor, the server was very unkind. He would roll his eyes, ignore us and would refuse to serve us because it was happy hour, once happy hour was over he would finally serve us. He made rude remarks and then just threw the bill at us and said it’s time to go. I have really enjoyed Bridgette Bar in the past and had always experienced such wonderful service. After this experience my friends and I felt that maybe this would be our last time going.

So glad to have this place open for business again after COVID!

Pleasant, capable, attentive staff, even during a busy Stampede evening. Inventive food, with small plates for sharing and more substantial plates for big eaters. The burrata cheese plate and tuna crudo plate were outstanding. A friend and I had individual chicken sausage pizzas that were very good (neo-neapolitan style), although in retrospect we could happily have made do with one pizza for the two of us.

The wine, beer, and cocktail offerings are thoughtfully put together. A great spot for a casual evening of good food and company. The noise level is just on the verge of requiring Pavarotti-style conversational power, so be prepared.

Amazing food and drink. Great service. I didnt name bomb (as Im a chef in the industry) but apparently one of your employees used to work for me and saw my name. So I feel I got special treatment for sure lol. Which was greatly appreciated. But everything was great. Love this spot, will be back and will recommend. Thank you so much.

Brigitte Bar was a great restaurant to try. We like to try out new (to us ) places and BB did not disappoint. Great vibe with eclectic decor. The service was great from the moment we stepped in and were greeted to the conversation we had with our waitress as we paid the bill.
We had the beet salad and octopus salad to start and they were both amazing!! We then had the steak and Ricotta dumplings. My wife was very happy with the Ricotta. I was happy with the steak, but not completely sold. It came with a gravy and cheese sauce, fries, and some broccolini. I’d probably not order it again but it definitely did not turn me off the restaurant. Wish I’d been able to try the banana pie but was too full!
We are planning on returning with friends as we think the menu, decor, prices, and just general vibe would make for a great night of sharing plates and having a laugh.
