A wonderful place for our girls’ day to begin summer, including outing with baby granddaughter. Loved everything although enjoyed panna cotta the least.

I felt very safe dining at the Bridgette Bar. It was my second time dining here and both times I was not disappointed. I was a bit sad that I could not have any desert there as they no longer had a gluten free dairy free desert option as they did the last time I was here. The restaurant was quite spaced out and I did not feel uncomfortable at any time. The food as usual was awesome!

Our sever Will gave nothing but 100% amazing recommendations. Drinks were never empty, water was always full.

The food was better than it had any right to be. How can asparagus be so good?!?

Thank you!!!!!

We love Bridgette Bar and come every year for birthday celebrations. They handled COVID risk so well, the wait staff is always great, drinks are worth coming for alone, and the food did not disappoint (I worry I build it up in my head between visits and ONE day I’ll be disappointed but it hasn’t happened yet - somehow it always exceeds my high expectations).

The food and the space are both excellent. It's also very easy to be satisfied with their non-meat options. This was our second time and we will be back.

I was careful to not expect too much after their reopening during the pandemic. I didn't want to be disappointed, but Bridgette Bar hit it out of the park. The star of the evening was the roast chicken - something so simple but incredible when it is perfectly done on a pile of crisp oh-so-delicious fries. We had missed hot, perfectly done fries during the lockdown. The garlic bread was on point as it always was, and the tuna crudo sublime.

The hand sanitizer offered was highly scented which I reacted to (opt to bring your own if you are sensitive to scents) The only disappointment was the Banana cream pie, which was amazing in the past was just ok this time. Service has not changed and our servers were excellent. We look forward to going back soon.

Our favorite restaurant in Calgary, have probably been there 5-6 times. Everything we've ordered has been a 10/10 and cocktails are delicious. Fantastic, friendly service and great aesthetics / design.

We had a great time, the service and food was exceptional! It’s my second time there and both time’s have been wonderful. It’s a bit of a curse on first dates though but I’m sure they can’t really help that lol. Don’t let that discourage you. Great place!

Had an excellent dining experience at Bridgette Bar on Sunday, June 7th. I was contacted ahead of time through my reservation regarding COVID-19 health & safety, which I appreciated. Throughout the entire night I felt very comfortable with the efforts & measures that were in place to keep guests, employees, and the public healthy.

Our server was exceptional! I did not get his name, but I believe he was serving the bar/lounge area. Great recommendations and super personable. Delicious food as always. Happy to finally be back at Bridgette Bar!

We had an amazing time at Bridgette! Food was fantastic, service was great! A Covid-19 quiet was present, but there isn't anything you can do about that. All the staff were taking the health and sanitary precautions very seriously. Well done!
