    Of course the location, view, setting was spectacular. I will say they honored our request to be on outside on the deck. We sat upstairs and it was wonderful. The Hostess was great as was one of the two servers was attentive and lovely, the other seems to fine us an annoyance. Sadly the food was not great. Eggs Benny is just that a classic - don't mess with something not broken. Adding an onion jam frankly ruins the flavor. It would be nice to have been offered the old stand by as a choice. Tots? Fun I guess, but not outstanding. I would go again, but ask more questions on exactly what I was getting.

    Had not been here since the merge of Bridges / Tap & Barrel. Making a reservation was easy and made all the difference on an extremely busy summer Saturday. Food was great and service was prompt. Nice renovations done to the building and love that it still retains some of the Bridges feel.

    Great atmosphere and beautiful view. Food wasn’t the greatest- my friend and I both had steak frites and it was over cooked and tough- didn’t want to complain as were headed to a show. Our server was friendly. If I did go back I’d probably just go for drinks

    When I made a reservation for Tap and Barrel Bridges, I explained in the notes section that my relatives were flying in from Scotland and this would be their first experience of Vancouver. They were extremely accommodating and were able to find a table on their beautiful patio in the shade as requested. A lovely welcome, attentive service, delicious food ( I’d recommend the cauliflower lettuce wraps!) and…a breathtaking view! Couldn’t have asked for more….

    Our waiter "Josh" was terrible. We had to call him over several times form other tables to get his attention. Our bottle of wine arrived 30 minutes after our meal was served. It was like we didn't exist. No apology and he was miffed that my friend gave him a minimal tip. I f I had been paying I would have given no tip whatsover

    Great to see Bridges is back with better food and additional patio seating. The noise level inside was over the top, but outside it was fine. Service was fast and attentive, menu was varied. The Tuna Poke Bowl and Seafood Caesar were excellent, and there was a good selection of BC wines along with beers and cocktails. THE perfect spot to enjoy Vancouver on a summer evening.
