food is excellent but as the menu notes the plates are designed to be shared so order a few more than the number in your party. We had 7 for 4 people an it was the perfect number.

Everything was great - I just wish we had remembered to ask for the discount because we were going to VTSL after dinner. We did mention this to our server, but the discount wasn't applied. When we were paying we forgot. Otherwise the experience was great.

Prices were very high. We were not allowed to bring a birthday cake for our daughter so I would never come back to the restaurant - a very unfriendly policy that does not meet your customer needs - quite a surprise!.

Really nice view, great service, and great food. I found the prices to be a bit high for the portions though

Great to come back
We have not eaten at Bridges for a couple of years, so it was a pleasure to dine there this past weekend. Fresh spot prawns were on the menu, delicious......and we loved the small plates format. Definitely will be back soon

The "other" Bridges
Have often eaten at Bridges when visiting Vancouver, and enjoyed the waterfront deck and comfort food. What I didn't know was that on the 2nd floor, they also operate a fine food restaurant. We had a group of 6, with a table beside the window. Service was great, and the food was also great, with creative and inventive combinations.

special occasion upstairs
The food was delicious & innovative. We enjoyed the action on the water surrounding the restaurant. The adjoining bar area became very noisy when a large group arrived for their reservation. They certainly enjoyed themselves! We also enjoy the causal dining on the deck for other occasions.

Change For The Better!
It had been many years since my wife and I had dined at Bridges. Some change! It began with the brighter decor, which went well especially with a beautiful summer's evening. We were unaware that the restaurant menu had changed to a modified tapas style, which is normally not a favourite style. However, our superb and knowledgeable waiter suggested two tapas which were good 'mains' around which to build our meal. We found that a larger tapas and two accompanying tapas were perfect for us, even though a total of four dishes had been suggested for two people. It left us with enough room for a shared dessert in celebration of the day. And the last surprise before heading off to the theatre was the extremely reasonable bill. We will return soon.

Great food & great service
The food and service were impeccable & we all enjoyed our time there. The only "blip" was the rather confusing menu which grouped in food type only & did not destinguish between starters, entrees and side dishes (all were one-liners), except by price (since all entrees seemed to be over $25 & starters/sides less than $20). We recommend & we'd go back.

The food an ambiance were fantastic for a romantic evening meal with my fiance. But the shared plate concept inspire conversation and a fun dining experience and I am looking forward to bringing some friends to enjoy the patio and great food in the future!

Nice scenic view
Food tasted good. The waitress was very attentive to our needs. What I loved the most about this restaurant was the water view, it made me feel very relaxed which I needed after feeling the burnout of work and stressed of daily life.

Outstanding view and locale
We sat on the outside upstairs patio - it was a beautiful evening and a gorgeous view. The service started out to be excellent - then we ended up having to ask for things - water refill etc - etc. Was disappointed in the bread - no selection and only WHITE. Ceviche was excellent - but the chips which accompanied it were stale. The waiter was excellent and discounted our bill 15% because we were attending a theatre performance after dinner. All in all a special experience. Please forward to the restaurant about the bread.
Also a very minimum wine selection by the glass.

Our server was quiet, polite, and pointed out the wisdom of purchasing the whole bottle of wine, when we were about to order second glasses each. Presentation was attractive. Nutritive value high, and flavour excellent. The raspberry coulis on my dessert was rather scant, given that it was named as an apparently important feature.

Best flat iron steak I've ever had. I came here for my wedding 1year ago. We came back for our anniversary.

One of our Top 5 Dinners
When we arrived, the first hostess said we would be able to get an outdoor table (great!) but then was corrected politely by the hostess for that floor, who explained that another couple had been waiting inside for some time for that same table (bummer!). We were seated at a nice indoor table still with a nice view. Our waiter Andre then arrived to say that they had indeed rearranged the outdoor table to accommodate us and proceeded to take us to the absolute best table on the deck! Then he arrived with two complimentary glasses of champagne to apologize ofr our inconvenience!! From that point, everything was outstanding - the food was beautifully done, the service was tremendous and we had one of our best dining experiences...ever!

Table with a view...
Immediately after making my reservation with Open Table, the restaurant called to advise that my special request of being seated on the patio could not be guaranteed but every effort would be made to accommodate the request. I was therefore delighted when I arrived with my out of town guest and were seated outside without delay on a very busy night.
My guest and I shared mussels as an appetizer. Delicious but far overpriced for what was served compared to offerings at similar restaurants in the area. My guest had salmon which was cooked to perfection. The only complaint was that there were no real side dishes or accoutrements available on the menu as the salmon was basically served sans vegetable/starch eg) rice, pasta, potato.

Great place to dine
We were four people, first time in the restaurant (first time in Vancouver). We were served by our waiter in a very friendly way.He explained the restaurant's dining concept to us ("sharing") and suggested some excellent dishes from which we chose - and they were in fact delicious: very carefully cooked and beautifully presented. As we sat on the upper terrace, the view of vancouver's bridges was magnificent, with the sun setting while we dined. Wine was good too. What else does one need?
Bottom line - great place in terms of location (and view), food and service. I recommend it with all my heart.

Had dinner prior to attending a show at the Granville Island Stage. Staff were very welcoming and the food was excellent.

It was magical, just as I asked. Thank you for your effort, politeness and the food was yummy.

Man... The service is super friendly and it's almost like your water and pop aren't ever empty, the service is also very friendly and actually engage with the costumer more than the regular waiter would.
The food is also amazing, juicy and tasty, especially the steak!! Salad was amazing and the bread they bring was actually warm and moist not dry and was most likely just laying around.
This is definantly my new "go to" restaurant and I will be a repeat costumer for a very long time!! Do not pass this place up!!

booked a table, even though they don't usually take reservations for the downstairs patio.
The manager made an exception since it was a special occasion and we wanted confirmation
we would be seated wherever we decided to go. The service was awesome, food was great and of
course the view was spectacular. Thanks Richard for making a great night happen.

Most beautiful views
We had dinner on the upstairs patio . We felt the views from this location were the best we ever experienced !

Pleasant evening dining
Took my aunt and uncle who are from overseas to Bridges on a weeknight and it did not disappoint. Seems like most sittings happened after 8PM. This Granville Island location is still a gem. Great seafood and service. The quiet elegance and I still enjoy restaurants with super high ceilings. Beet & Cambozola Salad was awesome.

The food was somewhat disappointing but the service and the view was fantastic. But I did wish that it has a heater or something that could warm me up a bit. Overall, it was a great experience!

Small but nice menu. We had Wild Salmon with potatoes and Paella. Both were very delicious.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful place to celebrate
We had a wonderful night and they treat us like we were the only customers in the room. My son was with us and they fixed him a quick spaguetti dinner. We ate salmon, paella and mussels and it was all cooked and served to perfection. The place is located on the very romantic Granville Island and very close to the water and the lights from the tall buildings.

Bryan S. Was our waiter, it felt like Bryan was part of the party. Great service, interaction made the night a fantastic experience along with great food. Thank you for having lobster bisque available even though it was not on the menu. Definitely will be back.
