    This is, in my opinion the best restaurant in Calgary right now. The place is very nicely decorated, the ambience is great. A tad noisy if you are looking for a quiet evening. But did not bother us. Comfy tables and chairs/sofas. Service was phenomenal. Our server Sever was great. She quickly understood us and was not afraid to recommend. Loved that. Her wine pairing was very welcome. She was on top of things and attentive while giving us our space. Food was great. Every bite. The chicken live mouse, wow. All our appis, really nice. Main dishes even better. The duck… you need to have it. Deserts were good. Many people have recommended and needed to try and loved it. Would definitely come back.

    Not my first time here, and Bridgette Bar continues to impress. The service is consistently excellent as is the food and cocktails. If you want to indulge try the cheese curd garlic toast - heaven. My shrimp and calamari pasta dish was perfect al dente and very flavorful. The charred broccoli salad was also delicious. The Malted Chocolate Mille-feuille dessert was a beautiful combo of chocolate, ice cream, salted peanuts and crispy pastry. I love the atmosphere at the restaurant as it is always bustling. The hardwood floors and exposed brick walls as well as the open kitchen add to the fun vibe.

    We went to Bridgette Bar for my birthday and also to celebrate getting married. The staff went above and beyond and gifting us a card signed by everyone. The food was amazing as usual. We tried a number of different cocktails as well and they were all delicious. We will be back for the Rolling Canoe and banana pie!

    Bridgette Bar was a delightful surprise and I will certainly return and recommend it. The server was attentive without bothering and went the extra mile. the food and cocktails were outstanding with unique, fresh flavours. The reservation system worked, there was adequate near-by parking and the windows provided tough light to read menus and cheer the interior. In sum, Bridgette is outstanding.

    Great ambiance (fun and social), fantastic server, reasonably priced. Our main dish was the mushroom truffle pasta and sections of the dish were hot and other sections were stone cold. Weird. It should have all been hot or warm.

    The food was excellent. The service was meh - we felt like we were being rushed out out even though we were well within our allocated time. Plates and cutlery were removed from guests while food was still on the table. The server barely acknowledged us and forced us to pay before we were even finished our drinks - we were well within our allocated time. This isn’t a fast food joint and for the amount we paid, I feel like we should have been able to sit there without feeling pressured. Disappointing!

    We are so thrilled to have found this gem after a wonderful dining experience. I was looking on Open Table for a new restaurant to try out and chose Bridgette Bar. The service was phenomenal - our server was very friendly, attentive, professional and helpful. We had eggplant fries (amazing!!), roast duck, beets, banana cream pie and a Mille fouisse. Every single dish was exceptional and very reasonably priced. The freshest of flavours expertly cooked and presented. We will absolutely and very happily be back!! Thank you for being the perfect place to celebrate my husband's birthday!

    From the time we were seated until we left, our experience was exceptional. Our server was knowledgeable with the menu, drink recommendations and how many share plates we should order. We were checked on regularly and food arrived hot and timely. The restaurant has a cool and relaxed vibe that feels comfortable. There are a lot a very good restaurants in Calgary, but this is definitely tops in overall experience. Thanks!
