Excellent bar staff: friendly, sharp, and great recommendations.
I thought the atmosphere was great and the food was amazing. The server was very nice and because I was there for my birthday, she made sure to make it special (she out a candle in the dessert and made a special custom drink for me as per my request). I couldn't get enough of the food, definitely coming back to try more.
I would recommend Bridgette Bar to a friend for a group diner, but not for a couple looking for a date night out.
Service was unfortunately - very poor.
Bridgette Bar was fantastic. The food was exceptional, we had a selection from snacks, small plates and large plates as well as a pasta and it was all outstanding (HIGHLY recommend the garlic bread, beet salad and rigatoni). We chose to add pasta as a 'side dish' and our server spaced each item out to ensure we could enjoy everything and the table wasn't over crowded. The server was considerate to fill up water and wine glasses but never hurried us. She made suggestions when we asked. The atmosphere was upscale but not stuffy with nice lighting and background music which wasn't too loud.
Awesome as always. Hopefully the Twin restaurant opens in the South.
The trout dish was excellent. The steak was pretty much blue rare when served and there was not an option of how you would even like it cooked. Do not order the steak unless you enjoy blue rare.
Food fabulous. Everything we tried off the sharing menu was delicious. Service great. Easy for conversation. Noise was minimal.
Food was awesome. A server named Lauren gave us a very bad service .The server didn't walk us through the food menu and didn't tell us there was happy hour on drinks. When we complained to the assistant manager, he said the server thinks we were not interested on ordering drinks and therefore she didn't tell us the happy hour special.
I think it is very unbelievable as no matter the customer is showing interest or not, the server still have yo perform their duties on introducing the special and promotion going on in the restaurant.
Very disappointed on the assistant manager and the server the way handling this complain.
Our first time there and we loved it! We’ll be back!
Absolutely unbelievable service and amazing food. Would definitely recommend the beet salad, trout and the rigatoni pasta. Thank you for having us!
Had a great night out with the girls!
The food here is incredible. We loved the sharing plate concept so we could mix and match. We started with the braised rabbit toast - surprising us in its unctuous deliciousness and hit of oil and vinegar'd salad. Not what we expected at all! We also ordered the brussels sprouts , wood roasted duck, and rigatoni with truffled mushroom sauce. Each dish was flawlessly made and full of flavour. We highly recommend the Banana Pie for dessert, but be forewarned it is massive - and scrumptious, not a bad combination! This restaurant is perfect for couples or good friends who want to share. The ambiance is airy and spacious, trendy without being too hipsterish. We will be returning soon.
First seat was next to the window. Heritage building has some holes in the brick mortar. -30*C outside and seat was freezing. May need some repointing. Second seat had a glass with a broken edge nearly cut myself. Sounds whiny but expectations were higher. Food was good.
Great experience! Delicious food! I am definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends!
Great food and amazing service. Would recommend.
Food is consistently good. Service is a bit disjointed as you order 4 items but never get them one at a time, they usually all come at once and this time it was very slow.
Made reservation 2 weeks in advance. Hostess put as a terrible table, when we asked to move to another table, she said the one we wanted was reserved............okay, but we had a reservation as well. We did get moved, but it didn't have to be that complicate.
Such a great restaurant, bit so noisy because of the hard surfaces. Wish some of the noise could be baffled.
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Bridgette Bar on Saturday evening. It was our first time there. Our server was fabulous and the food was delicious. We had the duck and the brussels sprouts.
It's a great venue. It was notable that everyone there was so happy and obviously enjoying themselves. See you again soon!
Wonderful birthday dinner!
Dinner was absolutely incredible. Food was outstanding and the service was far better than we have experienced in calgary in a long time. Kudos to Brock for making the evening truly incredible and choosing such great dishes for our tasting menu. Highly recommend Bridgette Bar - excellent food, service, atmosphere and value. Can’t wait to return.
The menu is light in terms of knowing what you are ordering, but with a big group we pretty much tried everything. And everyone enjoyed the dishes, they were all awesome, full of flavour and expertly prepared. Delish will be going back for sure!!
Great place to spend a Fri night with friends. Food was delicious, service was prompt and attentive and it is a great comfortable space.
Birthday dinner and service was great
We had the beef cubes which I found to be tough and not the best cut for the value paid.
Server I felt like would not talk to my date at all as soon as I spoke he would just walk away. It was her birthday and he made her feel very unwanted.
Service was awesome for husbands birthday. It isn’t really a place for kids but they did a fantastic job to accommodate our two year old. The rest of our party loved the food, but it wasn’t great for me. I’m a vegetarian with Celiac disease so have to eat gluten free. They had several dishes that I could eat but I just didn’t happen to like.
Our waitress was attentive...too attentive. She would stand their until we acknowledged her. She interrupted our conversation numerous times.
Other than that the ambiance and food were fantastic!
Excellent food and the service was great! We had a great time as a family. Enjoyed the food, drinks and the atmosphere!
Love this place. Our server was incredibly knowledgeable about the menu. We couldn’t decide so we ask him to pick for us. Beet Salad, Eggplant fires, garlic bread, rainbow trout and sticky toffee pudding for dessert. Delicious. Menu items are served family style and our meant for sharing. Will definitely go again
Loved this restaurant - always such a treat and is a definite hidden gem!
Great service, great food, and an even better time. Thank you for having us.
My fiancé and I went there for our birthday with our family. Everything was amazing - the ambiance, service, food, etc. We asked for a “chef’s choice” family-style meal and it was divine. So much food and all amazing. Both of us birthday guests of honour has a sweet bday card waiting for us at the table from the restaurant, hand-signed by all the staff. It was such a nice touch. We will definitely be back!! I’m still dreaming of that cheesy garlic bread...
Garlic bread to die for and a fab draught selection!
Loved it! Food was great and service was fantastic.
I would still recommend it but the last time we went, my group waited for over 45 minutes for our reservation. I was not impressed with the service because of this.
Birthday dinner for my dad
After trying many of YYC's must-try new restaurants, we finally found a place with style AND substance. The food was excellent. We had the garlic bread, the octopus salad, the roasted cauliflower and the duck. Each dish was unique, but not for unique's sake. The little signature flavours and touches ADD to the plate, not just to the marketing. I'm a designer, and mid-century modern is one of my favorite aesthetics - and this place has that look - so its for me to love the ambiance. Honestly, we've tried so many places now that were all style, but with forgettable dishes, I wasn't expecting much. Happy to say it was one of our best dining experiences ever in Calgary.
Food was great along with the service...nice vibe!
Our server Brandon was outstanding. Accommodating and informative and very friendly. Every dish was delicious and perfectly prepared. One of the best meals I have experienced in quite a while. We will definitely return.
