    Bridgette has always been one of my favourite restaurants in yyc, the food and ambience are always amazing, I have always enjoyed being there. However this time, after dessert was ordered and brought to our table, we were “reminded” multiple times by our server Mila that we were on a time restraint and she will need our table soon; this was brought up AGAIN after we had paid our bill and we’re reaching for our coats that the next table will come in 5 mins( I couldn’t help but take note that there were tables available and the table next to us came before us and were still there when we left)! Note that our reso was made for 6.30pm and we left at 8.36pm. I understand that’s how some restaurants work but it never feels GREAT when you are dining, spending and trying to sharing a good time within reasonable timeframe feel being rushed by your server! Maybe it’s just me?!

    Most of the food was very good, except the 2 sides on our entrée that were way too salty. The waitress we had (Rachel) was awesome, she provided great customer service, very prompt and friendly. Ambience was nice and we had a good time. Drinks are a bit pricey for what you get. Pricing of food is a bit high given the portion size you get.

    Wow! I was not expecting such a great experience - genuinely blown away. I tried the banana pie that other reviewers loved and what can I say- they are right! And I don’t really like banana pie normally. The garlic bread was a tasty surprise. I don’t know how it’s possible to make carrots and cauliflower so tasty. Great service and a nice lively crowd on a Monday night.

    Food was good. We shared a few small plates and a vegetable. Could have ordered more but went for dessert instead. The restaurant left a cute Happy Birthday card, but otherwise, it was not acknowledged. Sever left a wine chiller in between our and the next table, and when it inevitably fell over, she acted like it was our fault. It was all a bit strange, but still one of my favorite stops when I am in Calgary.

    We went for a anniversary dinner. It was delicious. I really appreciate having tasty mocktails. That are also reasonably priced. The ricotta dumplings are like clouds of love. The vibe is fun and vibrant. It was busy but it did not feel packed. Lots of space between the tables. And still was able to have a comfy intimate dinner. The music is fun and our server was amazing! Dessert is a must but save room they are big ❤️❤️❤️. Thanks Bridgette Bar our experience was delightful

    The overall experience at Bridgette Bar ended up being quite poor as the service was quite bad. The food was mediocre not worth the hype, and the cocktail were definitely not worth the cocktail bar prices. Although, the ambiance was really interesting, this was not good enough to make me want to go back to this restaurant again. Our server was rude and did not help us, anytime we asked for a recommendation she was hostile and rude, and would walk away and not come back to take our order for 20 minutes. This ruined our experience and now I will not be recommending this bar to anyone.

    Wow!! A triumph for the tastebuds and an interactive experience where you can share plates and create your own perfect meal! LOVED everything we had - Chicken liver appetizer was gorgeous and beef carpaccio a great contrast. Tried the lamb - perfectly prepared and paired perfectly with the wood roasted carrots drowning in gouda and the smashed potatoes with their creamy sauce - oh my! I am already figuring out which of my foodie friends to take with me next time so I can try more dishes! Server was lovely - friendly and helpful. Atmosphere hip and trendy not uptight. Even the cream for the coffee was so rich and glorious! It was our Anniversary and they had a card waiting with greetings signed from the staff and a festive sparkler in our Lucious desserts to mark the occasion - fun touch:) The cocktails we started with (Heiress in Paris - like drinking Black Forest cake!! and the Bullet Train - mmmmm) set the tone and we knew we were in for a great night. This was our first visit - but it will not be our last. Thank you Brigitte Bar!
