This is an interesting restaurant. I really love the space, although the noise level is overwhelming when the place is full, and since it seems very popular they can be a problem for some people. As for the food, let's just say it didn't convince me. Lacks subtlety and elegance. Interesting maybe, but that's not enough. It also has to be good, and I have to say I didn't really find that to be the case.

What a gem of a place! The food is creative and very flavorful. The service is outstanding with a strong team approach to satisfying customers. The shared plate concept works well here with both large and small plates to share. The large plate duck dish is incredible. The asparagus side was surprisingly original with it being topped with pureed avocado mixed with capers and sliced cornichons. Honestly the least memorable item was the oysters even though they were also creative with their sides. If every in Calgary again, I will return to Bridgette Bar.

Full disclosure, my daughter is a chef here. Regardless, this was the first time at Bridgette for my dining partner. She loved the atmosphere and really enjoyed the food. She said she would be coming back for dinner.

Two birthday celebrations. We really love the food and the ambience. The staff are always welcoming and friendly. And efficient too...
Amanda, thank you so very, very much for going the extra mile. Your gesture of the bubbles and dessert was truly kind and equally unexpected! A huge thank you from us all. It was lovely to see you. And Eleanor enjoyed catching up with everyone she knows too xx

Perfect for date night or a quick drop in with friends. Share the plates and the waiter will pair them properly. Do not leave without trying the liver or lamb sausage!

Have been to Bridgette bar a few times and have loved every mouth watering bite. Unfortunately this time I tried the pork chop and it was very dry, even the yummy sauce couldn’t fix it. The waitress was super nice, I didn’t want to ruin her evening by waving her down, complaining about the food. She did ask us how everything was before I took my first bite of pork so we said everything was great. Then I didn’t see her again until we asked for the bill and a to go box of a full entree with a bite taken out. I wish she noticed and asked if everything was ok. I hope next time I suggest Bridgette bar as date night, my bf doesn’t say no. I won’t order the pork pork again and opt for the duck. Everything else was a delight.

This was not my first visit and certainly will not be my last. It was interesting to visit during ‘off’ hours (pre-dinner). Despite being limited to the snack menu we were still very happy with our order. The Hummus Chips were a favourite for sure. It never hurts visiting during Happy Hour since it means more cocktails can be sampled at a fraction of the cost!

We went for our Friday date night and really enjoyed the restaurant! We had quick, friendly, and personable service and the food and drinks were very good. We each got a glass of wine and we tried 5 different small plates/ oysters, eggplant fries, grilled octopus salad, halibut fritters, and the lamb sausage. Everything was well presented and flavourful. The server told us the octopus salad and the lamb sausage are very popular, and no wonder! The grilled octopus salad was fresh and crisp and the octopus was salty and had a smokey-ness to it that balances the flavours very well. The lamb sausage had a lot going on - the sausage itself was smokey and herb-y, and the toppings paired nicely. Thank you Bridgette Bar, we’ll be back!

Four of us dined in the restaurant area. We ordered pizza’s and appies to share. The food was delicious all-round and portions large enough to take home remainders. The appies were served with the mains instead of prior which I found off-putting. I loved the vibe of the restaurant - bustling and fun! Service was excellent! The banana pie was decadent and delicious. One dessert served four women and there still was some remaining.

We went to Bridgette Bar to celebrate a birthday. We knew nothing of the restaurant except that they served small plates, which we enjoy.
The place was hopping on Saturday night and everyone there including staff was very upbeat and vibrant.
We chose 3 small plates, a salad one large plate and a dessert. Everything was excellent, as was the attentive service.
We would definitely recommend the joint and we will be return for sure.
