Our server Shane was excellent! The food was brilliant and ambience was great. My only comment is that we felt a little rushed. Maybe extend the length of stay to 2.5 hours.

This was our second time to Brigette, which mirrored the first experience. The first word that comes to mind that frames the evening we experience was "flow". From the time we were welcomed at the door, to the cocktail hour spent in the lounge with friendly and energetic staff, to then transitioning to the dining room, to our decision to put the fate of our meal in the hands of the experienced and well-training chef's to choose for us, rather than a meal of our choosing - it all just flowed extremely well. Our server was top notch - very attentive, helpful and knowledgeable. The food was well above average. Seriously well above average.
I mean, any restaurant that can make a beet salad into a taste sensation for someone that would avoid beet salad like the plague, has it all going on in my opinion ! Thank you, Brigette Bar ! We'll be back !

The food was exceptional as always but Neil was the most amazing waiter we have every had. We came for my grandmas 85th birthday and Neil was incredible. He made amazing recommendations on the menu, was very knowledgeable and attentive (and always poured our wine at the perfect time) and even walked my Grammy to the washroom as she had never been there before. In this day and age it is nice to see that chivalry from someone we don’t even know. Our night was amazing and it if you are making a reservation request Neil. HES THE BEST. Thank you bridgette bar 💕 it was incredible as always

My in-laws were in town for the holiday weekend. We wanted to treat them to a nice night out. We loved everything about our night at Bridgette Bar. Our server was really helpful in offering suggestions for portion sizes, how much we should order for 4, and great wine/beer pairings.
I really like the vibe of this restaurant. Busy, interesting decor, great cocktails, and amazing food!
We will definitely be back!

Great date idea and great value if you go down around 4-4:30 in time for half price wine and drinks. You then can wait it out until 5 for the full menu if the apps did not fill you up enough.
