Worst meal I’ve ever had in Calgary. We ordered the smoked olives which were just warmed up and store bought. The octopus salad wasn’t charred at all, the chicken had a weird taste to it and the gravy was not appealing, and the trout was too sweet covered in maple syrup with gummy potatoes. Didn’t even want dessert.

You can't go wrong with anything on the menu!! Outstanding unique flavors and quite filling.

We've been 3x and have had exceptional food and service each time.

The truffle rigatoni and the beet salad are staples for us. They also just got a new dessert that blew us away last night - the pistachio rhubarb crumble.

I sipped on the "bubs and shrubs" (gin, rhubarb and champagne) cocktail while eating the pistachio and rhubarb dessert and it was an amazing pairing.

One last note- if you like oysters....this is where it's at.

Food never disappoints - brought my friend for her birthday. Dessert (banana cream pie) was the bomb. My only complaint was that the alcohol prices were more than I am used to paying. My mint mojito was $14!

We had an exceptional time dining here for my mother’s birthday. Our server Madison was incredible and the food was outstanding. My only feedback is that the cocktails/highballs seemed a bit steep for what the quality was. We will be back! There was a lot on the menu we’re dying to try.

Also, thank you for going above and beyond to make the evening memorable for us. It was an exceptional experience.

Overall a very average experience and not really worth the price. I visited Bridgette bar before and was impressed but this time I wasn’t at all it could be because we sat out on the patio because for some reason the service wasn’t as good and the value for the food was lacking as well. The halibut is $42 but not filling because it is just the fish and some artichokes. We were supposed to have our drink come out with dinner and it didn’t come for at least 10 mins after our meals arrived. The seating was also uncomfortable on the patio.

By far the worst dining experience for a special occasion. Although they had a limited menu, the food was well below par for a restaurant that was supposed to have such high ratings. The pizza was limp and tasteless with the cheese in the Center barely melted. We could not get out of this place fast enough. We left and went to Joeys for something to actually eat

Unfortunately our waitress made all 4 of us feel extremely rushed. She started out by telling us that if we ordered a protein it would take a long time. So all of us ordered pasta instead. The waitress reminded us that we have 2 hours which we understood. But she also reminded us that we only had 30 minutes left as we wanted to order a second bottle of wine. She tried to get us to order single glasses of wine but a bottle divided by 4 people is the same thing. Then she reminded us at 10 minutes remaining. We were splitting the bill so there were only 2 people paying. One of us received a thank you after paying and one of us didn’t.
We have been to Brigette Bar many times and is one of our favorites. However we all agreed that this scarred our experience. We also ordered take out during the Covid closures to support Bridgette Bar.

We ordered 3 appetizers as well and our dinner was delicious.

We dined out the next evening at Modern Steak and the service experience was wonderful. Not once was it mentioned we had 2 hours. The food was also delicious.

Our 2nd time at BB. Definitely our favorite place in town now. The first time we were able to dine inside, fantastic food, atmosphere and service. Unfortunately due to covid the recent experience required us being on the patio in a rain storm, still the best food we've had in Alberta. Will be back many more times in the future!

Finally back at B’s Bar! Missed it. One of our favs. Patio is great. Street can be a little noisy on 10th Ave. Next time we’ll try 7th St. Not the resto’s fault! Had the beet salad, cauliflower dish, octopus salad and shared the sausage pasta dish. For something maybe different, try their Lt Pepper drink.

All great! Highly recommended.
