Very good overall.

Couple of the small plates and appetizers may have missed the mark but the large plates, pasta, and vegetables were excellent and more than made up for it.

The Italian Pork Sausage pasta was delicious and I would go back just to order that again! Our table also loved the Rainbow Trout.

I’ve never had a bad meal here. No matter what new items are added, they’re great. I entertain people from around the world, and come here for business and casual meetings. It never disappoints.

The food was excellent, I have an allergy and the kitchen was very accommodating in ensuring my selection was made without the offending ingredient. The server was attentive but didn’t hover. I would definitely visit again.

Our anniversary celebration
Greeted with happy anniversary card on our table.

Table was tucked away in a quiet romantic corner (I requested on open table booking).

Service was phenomenal!

Food - some of the best in Canada. New duck menu item to die for - so fresh!
Highly recommend at any time.

First of all the food was fantastic, everyone at the table loved their plate. The customer service was great and were kind to us as they were late by 30 minutes to get us to our reservation but they provided us with 3 free appetizers that were awesome. Decor and variety of food choices were amazing also. Dad is a vegan he had many options to choose. A must while in Calgary.

I had my birthday dinner here last night and it was mine and my friends first time here. It was absolutely amazing. The service was so good. Very attentive. Was so helpful with recommendations. The staff left me a birthday card all signed and I forgot it there :( the cocktails were so good and unique. And the food was absolutely delicious. Hands down the best restaurant I’ve been to in Calgary. Everything was all around amazing. And the actually restaurant it’s self is so nice and the vibe is just really relaxed. Well be going back ASAP!

We went to Bridgette Bar on our 45 th anniversary and enjoyed the food and service. We were given a good seat and seating is well spaced out. We loved their avocado, carpaccio and pasta with shrimp dishes. We found wine selection was limited for orders by glasses unless one orders by the bottle!

I had been to Bridgette Bar once before and had been wowed. This time, went with my husband and parents, who had never been. My parents are foodies from Montreal, so I wanted to bring them somewhere memorable.

From the moment we were greeted at the door, to the time we left, we felt welcomed. Our server, Brock, was passionate and knowledgeable about the food. He explained the ingredients in each dish and how each were prepared.

I will continue to come back for the food, service and ambiance.

In the past I have totally loved the food at Brigitte Bar; its taste, variety and unique flavor combinations. This last time I found all the dishes we ate extremely heavy and fatty. We ordered the roasted brussel sprouts which were swimming in a cream sauce. The halibut fitters also were heavy, fried and with a thick coating that absorbed too much fat while cooking. Even the squash was heavy and fatty. All in all a great disappointment given the price that left my stomach not feeling good. Such a shame. Service and ambience, as usual, were wonderful but I will not come back for a while.

The food is delicious and interesting. Ate vegetarian and there was ample from which to choose. The service was so good- above and beyond. And, while the restaurant is fairly noisy- it is better than some. We were able to have a conversation without a problem. Good for foodies!!! Loved it. Will go back.

Great experience. Food is amazing, especially the vegetables are stunning. Love the service, they really do care our comment as the steak is not as rare as we expected. The chef confirmed with us how we wanted and made a new one for us.
