    Our experience didn’t meet the hype. We were given constant reminders about the allotted time for the table, but weren’t given a list of what they were out of that night. They were out of the first drink and first appetizer we tried to order. The food we received was good.

    Service was mediocre, forgot two of our meals, and very slow for drinks. Could have larger water glasses so that refills were not as necessary. Requested the private dining room for a large group and they missed the email request. Table was fine but very hard to socialize at for 8 people. Our celebration was for two birthdays and would be nice if they had a better service for celebrations. The shrimp calamari pasta was a stand out. Pizza was good. Tuna starter was very mediocre.

    Food made the experience. Was dining for 2.5 hrs and saw our server maybe 4 times. Had to leave my table during our entrees to find a water glass to fill our own table. Wanted to order deserts but by the time our server did come to our table only 1 was available. Food was great

    I had not been here since before the pandemic but had remembered that it was a good restaurant. After struggling to get a reservation, I took some out of town company there for a special dinner. I could not have been happier with everything - the service, the ambiance, the cocktails, and most especially, the food. Everything was great! It is pricey but worth the splurge.

    Overall I was quite disappointed in my experience last night. Bridgette Bar has long been one of my favourite restaurants in Calgary, however last night did not live up to my previous experiences. The bread with baratta was under toasted and therefore fairly soggy, the cauliflower was luke warm and fairly tasteless. The beet salad, however was delicious as was the dessert. In the past I would most definitely have recommended Bridgette Bar to a friend but last night's experience unfortunately has made me think twice.

    I booked the only time then available for dinner and wasn't told that the dinner menu wasn't available at that time, 3:45, and so all we had was some snacks and then we left. It was very disappointing as I was so excited to go and enjoy dinner with my family.

    Loved all of the dishes (beef carpaccio, tuna crudo and burrata). The server was excellent in describing the dishes, and how much we would need to order. We even had room for dessert (plum pudding and banana cream pie). Both were excellent, and not something seen on menus very often. All in, a great place to dine before hitting the theatre.

    Had much anticipation - hadn't been to BB for about a year. Went with two other couples. Overall was ok but some disappointing moments. Waitress was rushing us to fill our entree orders even before our last two party arrived, and later, she interrupted our meal and conversation a couple of times without waiting for a break in the conversation. The meals were quite good and served hot (by other kitchen/waiter staff), although my wife's cod entree had a large fishbone in it. Overall one would expect a better dining experience from this restaurant, considering reservations are in high demand. Anyway, we won't be returning for awhile.

    This was our first time to Bridgette Bar and we were thoroughly impressed! All the staff that we dealt with were very friendly and welcoming. They had a coat check which was nice. The atmosphere was casual but still a place you can dress up a bit more for. Trendy and popular. The food was incredible! Apparently they are known for their fantastic dishes. They delivered on their reputation!!

    Met a friend for lunch durning the week. Wait 50 minutes for food which had to be boxed up and taken to go because we had to get back to work. The manager come over to apologize and instead of comp’ing the meal, which we had prepaid for to speed things up, he gave us his business card. I’m not sure what we were supposed to do with his business card. So we paid $100 for a pizza and salad only to pack it up and eat cold/soggy food for dinner. Terrible experience.
