We went for dinner for 5 on a Sunday evening. We did the sharing style be tried many dishes. The dishes overall were excellent especially the taste. The portion sizes were somewhat small. Service was very good, very attentive and helpful. The restaurant itself was nice and modern looking. It was a bit loud however. We will go back and we recommend the restaurant!

The food is excellent and the service too, but it was so noisy that I felt I was yelling to be heard.

Incredible service, amazing food, and delicious cocktails. We came here for my boyfriend's 30th and it was such a treat! If you love state-of-the-art dining this is the place for you to indulge in both art, food and the overall atmosphere. We definitely will be coming here for our special occasions.

Great place, excellent food but place is too loud and tiny overpriced cocktails are bad tasting. We tried three different cocktails and they were all awful.

Always a great place to take out-of-town guests: funky atmosphere, great layout and decor, and fabulous food presented in an eye-captivating form. Guests inevitably comment about their surprise that we have such a place.

First visit to Bridgette Bar and overall it was a pleasant experience but my friend tried the rabbit on toast and she was not satisfied as she said it could have been tuna as no taste of rabbit at all. My rigatoni was very good. Coffee cups were cold.

Tina crudo and lamb sausage to start - both so delicious. The rainbow trout main was a big portion which for the price I thought was great. Fish was cooked perfectly, crispy on the outside and medium rare on the inside. The white peach negroni is a go-to here for me and it never disappoints! Service was attentive, keep up the great work!

When I got to the restaurant, the table I reserved was not ready and I waited 20 minutes until it was. My reservation was for 8 and I didn’t get seated until 8:20ish. There was no point of the reservation if they couldn’t hold the “reserved” table. We had to wait for the people to finish eating. My mood after that first instance just went down and I never want to experience that again. Our server was spectacular, food was awesome. Overall, ok experience based on the first encounter, which matters the most.
