    There was one wine available by the glass. They were out of the other options. The gin and tonic came with soda because they were out of tonic. We waited over an hour for our food. The short rib dish as a whole was completely tasteless and underwhelming and had so much fat it was hard to eat. The glasses were dirty. The server was nice but was did not come around very often and was not very knowledgeable about the menu.

    I have mixed reviews based on our experience. There was a group of 6 of us for a girls night out. The restaurant was not busy, which I found interesting for a Saturday night in Calgary. The cocktails were delicious, and the waiter was very attentive with ensuring our drinks and water were replenished. The menu looked great, and while my food was hot and delicious, others at the table were served cold food. When we brought this to the attention of our waiter nothing was done. The location and ambience were great. Our very last experience was at the end of the night paying the bill, one of my friends wanted to pay cash, but they were not able to provide her with any change. Considering hers was one of the meals that did not get eaten due to temperature and the amount of fat on the short rib - this was a terrible last impression. With so many amazing restaurants in Calgary - it will be some time before I venture back (if ever) which is unfortunate because I can see the potential in this place.

    We ate dinner last n their lovely patio. Our server was a dear and was attentive to our needs/requests. The four of us ordered two half chickens to share plus the cauliflower and beet sides. The chicken was succulent and so tasty. And, the sides that came with the chicken were also delicious. Highly recommend. Wine and drinks also good quality BTW.

    Everyone had burgers which were very good. One person opted for salad instead of fries. Some of the lettuce leaves were a bit tired. Service was a bit tentative. Overall it was a good dining experience.

    A group of 5 of us went for lunch on a Wednesday. The service was awful and the restaurant wasn't super busy. The food was delivered and our server didn't ask us if we needed anything until we were at least halfway through the meal. I ordered mayo on the side and gravy and both items were forgotten. We had to wait 10 minutes to pay our waitress while at least 4 other employees were standing around chatting. The consensus was, after the experience, we will find another venue next time and not return to Briggs.

    Cod sandwich was bland, came in a small portion and instantly made mee regret ordering it. Wish I just would've got a filet o fish at McDonald's. Cheese charcuterie board was lackluster. Not alot of cheese or bread. Fries were too well done. Drinks were good.

    I’ve been here 4 times before and liked it. Unfortunately last night just had the worst experience possible at a restaurant. We didn’t get our food for an hour and a half. Wine took 45 minutes to come and we had to go ask the bar for wine glasses. Appetizers finally came and we didn’t have plates or cutlery. Lobster risotto was undercooked (lobster over cooked), medium rare steak was very rare and chewy, short rib had absolutely no flavour at all. We cancelled the rest of the food once we had been there for 3 hours and it hadn’t all come out yet. The salmon was really good though! And the staff cut the bill down for us to compensate for the service/food.

    We went for a stampede lunch for work. We waited 50 minutes between appetizers and the main course, 2hrs total. When the main courses arrived we were famished and the food was cold not luke warm! Not sure why if there was a kitchen malfunction or server but that will be the last time I eat there.

    4th time here and have loved it but today. Today we realized that even if we reserve weeks in advance, we have always sat in the lounge as today was the first time we requested to be seated in the other area. Denied, the other times, the restaurant area was empty. We always order two appetizers and the Tomahawk. Our Tomahawk came before our appetizers. Weird eating salad when you are trying to enjoy the main course. Our "lounge" had no one but us though we only saw our waitress 4 times in 1.5hr we were there. Empty glasses and after waiting 15 minutes after our plates were taken we took the cheque instead of getting dessert. Ended up picking up dessert at a safeway on the way home.

    Newf’s poutine and grilled Oka were amazing! Brussels sprouts were shaved and lacked crispiness. Nobody really liked the apple cobbler. It wasn’t sweet enough and the spices lacked balance. Service and atmosphere were very good!

    Our experience was a nightmare! I ordered a Martini and got it in a champagne/margarita glass!! The lobster risotto had tiny pieces of lobster and was salty! The Arctic char was dry and no flavour. The manager Tatiana advised us all their Martini glasses broke!! Unacceptable. I can't seem to load the photos! Our server was very good but the dining experience was awful!! They also ran out of potatoes that they serve with the Arctic char so we settled for broccolini. Definitely don't recommend it!

    I had my Christmas work dinner in this restaurant in Dec 2021, which was good. Therefore, I chose this place to have dinner with some friends. It wasn't delightful. The lobster risotto my friends and I ordered was cold, the caramelized onions were burned, and its taste was bland. The Hamburgers were ok, but the french fries were cold as well. The noise level was very high, and I had to ask to change the leather chair because it was ripped.

    I brought my staff here for dinner because I had heard good things, we were a group of 8. I ordered the tomahawk steak. So I let the server know ahead of time because I knew they take a bit longer sometimes. Well the steak ended up coming out first. Which wasn’t convenient because everyone else’s food came about 10-15 minutes later. Our sides still had not come out. We were about 3/4 done by the time our sides came out, and we didn’t enjoy them. My wife and I finished the tomahawk and were left still hungry, it was not ver big. And we’re not big eaters. Anyways, for the price ($150 with sides), we were not impressed.

    We're not picky eaters and even I lean towards saltier food. But the sirloin steak was so salty we couldn't eat it. We also had sautéed prawns along with it and the same thing, so much seasoning on them you couldn't taste the meat. We thought about sending it back but were too polite. It was really disappointing.
