    The food and service were excellent. Nothing we ordered disappointed but are standouts were the carpaccio, tuna, hummus chips, eggplant fries, rigatoni (would seem heavy but it wasn’t. Amazing), and the rhubarb tart.

    Great food, great service but SUPER loud. We struggled to hear each other. Also I called and asked for a table at the front of the restaurant (where I find it’s less noisy) and when I arrived, we were seated at the back where I specifically requested not to be. I think you can do better than this. Honestly, I would opt to go elsewhere next time for these two reasons alone.

    It was our first time going to this place to celebrate Father’s day with my husband. The place was amazing and so is the food. I booked a reservation in this place a couple of days and “requested” for the bar seating. When we got there the staff didn’t put us to the bar seating of course! But instead he put us in a corner table and dark lightings! We were there for 3pm in the afternoon! I wouldn’t mind if we were there for the dinner. There was still plenty of lights outside! Like come on man! Just common sense and it wasn’t busy at all! I had to asked our server if it was okay to switch table as it was too dark in that corner table! I thought when you make a reservation in a restaurant they will accommodate you well. This wasn’t my first experience anyways other restaurants does the same thing. They will put you in a seating table that is far from everyone or in a dark spot even if you booked a reservation. But otherwise food and cocktails were great it’s just that seating arrangement was a bit awful.

    Food was amazing as usual. Service was not good. We waited over 15 mins to place our drink order. We had a table of 8 and our drinks were empty often. Food came out quickly which was great but didn’t love having food without drinks. We sat next to the kitchen which wasn’t a great vibe.

    Is and always has been my favourite restaurant in the city! Our server was attentive and provided great suggestions and was fun to be around. The beef carpaccio, cauliflower and tuna crisp are all to die for. Everything was amazing. Highly recommend the Rolling Canoe cocktail. Impeccable, will be back soon.

    Another great night at Bridgette. We were lucky enough to have Shane as our server again. Really like his level of energy and will recommend items, but also leave you to enjoy your food. Great balance. The standout dish for us was the duck for sure, but the halibut a very close second. Will be back!

    In general the experience at Bridgette Bar was okay. The food was tasty and the menu had a nice variety of fairly unique options. However our server seemed to have a somewhat uninterested attitude which was off putting. In addition, the restaurant now has a two hour time limit (depends on the party size) which he reminded us of part way through the evening. In summary, I expect more from this caliber of restaurant.

    We love Bridget Bar, this is our second time there and won't be our last. The food was great and wine we picked (no help...hint hint) turned out excellent to the last drop! The server we had did an adequate job. Our complaints with the service were that it took quite a while to see our server and get some water to start us off. The rest of the meal I would describe him as not very interested in our time at BB. He took a plate away before asking if we were done (beautiful sauce that my wife wanted to mop up).

    This was my first time here and it was very busy for a Tuesday night. Our server did her best, Our food was very bland and even thought we were given 2 hours, which I thought could be extended on a Tuesday night, we felt rushed to eat and get out of there, so overall it was not a relaxing or enjoyable experience.
