Bridges has a stunning location, overlooking the fishing boats in False Creek and the mountains of the North Shore. The 2nd floor dining room features a vaulted ceiling highlighting the original beams and trusses of this 1920's building, with floor to ceiling windows capturing every part of the view. In a casually elegant atmosphere, the chef presents a menu featuring fresh seafood, rich meats and local produce. During the summer, the dining room's outdoor terrace offers a unique opportunity for white-linen service on the waterfront.

Reservations are for the 2nd floor dining room only

We visit Vancouver frequently from Toronto to see family. It has become a custom for our last dinner before departure back home to be at Bridges. Wonderful ambience, terrific staff, and excellent cuisine. The lamb shank is the best I have ever had in many years of going to many excellent restaurants. Bravo.

For the second time, we went with a Travelzoo voucher and we received excellent service. The server was friendly (but not too much), knowledgeable and efficient. The food was seasonal, tasty and varied.

I hadn't read the online reviews for Bridges before going to dinner there, but I have to say I'm surprised at how many negative reviews there are. We had a dinner reservation in the upstairs restaurant on a Saturday night for 8pm. We got there about 30 minutes early expecting to wait, but they got us in after about a 15 minute wait. The restaurant has a very romantic and upscale feel, we were seated at a table facing the water and enjoyed beautiful views of the water and the city at night. The wine selection was fantastic and the wait staff was very knowledgeable and well-trained. We did not have to wait long for our appetizer (oysters on the half shell), waters, and bottle of wine. Bread was served right after ordering (delicious!). I had the West Coast Bouillabaisse, it was fantastic, and my boyfriend had the poached lobster, and we ordered mashed potatoes as a side to share. Both meals were on the smaller side, but delicious, and we ordered creme brulee for dessert. Yes, it was an expensive meal, but you don't go to an upscale restaurant and expect to pay less than we did (a little under $200). For an appetizer, 2 entrees, a side to share, dessert, and bottle of wine, and tip I do not thank that's unreasonable. We looked at the menu and prices online beforehand and knew it would be a pricier than normal meal, but it was definitely worth it for excellent food and service. I would go back and would recommend Bridges to anyone! Also, when we waited before our reservation they seated us in the pub area (near the bar and fireplace past the bistro downstairs), brought us waters and drink menus. It was very cozy and the hostess came to get us when our reservation was ready.

Beautiful location inside out. The view is phenomenal! If you go right before sunset, you can catch the glistening waves of the sun in the water. The food was delicious and came out in a timely manner. We ordered the truffle fries and they were to die for! They have the best truffle fries in Vancouver! Throughout our meal, our server touched based with us a few times to make sure we were doing okay and constantly refilled our glasses. The food was delicious and we were extremely satisfied at the end of the night.

They need to figure out how to make Arctic char. The wine selection is pretty good.

We found the staff pleasant and attentive and the tables nicely spaced throughout the attractive room. The view is spectacular and the location is in the lively area of Granville Island. The food prices struck me as being on the high side.....I prefer to have side vegetables included in the price of the entree. When they are ordered " for the table" (of two) they are unnecessarily large in size and therefore cost over $20 extra. When given the option for a tip they offer a blank dollar amount or a choice of 10% or 20%. One shouldn't have to type in 18% which is the amount I usually leave. I was tempted in annoyance to press 10% but didn't think this would be fair to our waitress. These two negatives unfortunately left an aftertaste.

Our server was great, attentive but knew when to just back off and let us entertain ourselves. The menu was limited and a little disappointing for being fairly pricey. I don't mind paying premium for a meal but I expect a premium meal. The food was cooked properly but the flavors, especially on the steaks was nothing to rave about. The sauces were overpowering and left no room for the natural flavor of the actual beef. The members of our group that had the Halibut and Salmon were quite happy.
