I would probably skip the tomahawk steak. Just too over done and definitely not enough for 2 people but had good taste. Definitely pass on the dessert. The Apple crumble was way too big and tasted starchy and just lacked in flavor, also it needed more ice cream. It was the smallest portion ever. Amazing service! Very attentive but I would probably not go again.

Heather was our server and was an absolute delight! Some of the drinks are little unusual. I had the Dark Old Fashioned and it didn't resemble the original drink at all. The food all came out nice and hot. We had the calamari as an appi, which was delicious. For my main I had the tenderloin and it was perhaps the best I've ever had!! This was our first time at the restaurant and I'll certainly be coming back.

I am
Usually very pleased with the food. This time the soup was served lukewarm. The server offered to reheat it. She returned with the same bowls of soup we in Soweto microwaved. We have no
Idea if the same bowls were given to the right guests. That should not have happened. New bowls should have been
Offered. The Caesar salad had no pigment no green. It was almost white and had some “rust” type marks. We would expect nice green romaine for the price. It was quite shocking to see such off lettuce being served. After the soup incident we didn’t bother complain out the lettuce. Disappointed

The food was super buttery, pretty heavy for a simple pasta with seafood.
To be extremely honest, this place has already been a lot better. It's sad to see it the way it is now...

Food and service were good. Staff and management mask policy was not. This was the ONLY establishment we visited in a 9 day swing through BC and Alberta where mask denial was open and the staff had to be asked to don a mask....troubling to us.

Dining at Briggs Kitchen was delightful. We had great service and the food and drinks were amazingly good. We were on the patio and the motorcycle traffic on 10th Avenue was annoying, but we did choose to go on a Sunday evening of a long weekend.

We have been going to Briggs for years, and have always had a lovely dining experience. We often take visiting friends and family here for supper, and celebrate occasions here. However last night was the last time we will come to Briggs. I am a celiac, and know that eating out is always a risk. Usually we tend to eat more than one meal when we go out, so usually when I get cross contaminated I do not blame Briggs. But it turns out last night I had the best server ever (and we have had the management serve us countless times) and she informed me that the meal I have been eating is in fact MARINATED in glutenous marinade. So regardless of the substitutions I was constantly being fed an allergen. Due to this negligence between previous servers and the fact that my meal (probably my most favourite thing to eat) CANT be made GF at all…. We won’t be returning. We will continue to recommend to friends without allergies, however anyone with any sort of allergy should stay very far away from this place. In 2021, the menu should be clearly labeled with allergens, and if not, the serving staff and kitchen should be informed. Thank you to our lovely server last night, I’m sorry I don’t know your name but you saved me a lot of heck for the next few days to come.

First time. Not the largest menu , but wide enough selection to please about anyone , including plates under 30$

Generous serving. Tasty well cooked short ribs , slightly over seared potato pancake. Lobster gnocchi sauce is the best seafood sauce I had in years. Definitely made with rich cream and lots of flavour. No compromise made by the kitchen crew. Cocktails well executed. ( real egg white in the Sour)

Enthusiastic service. Good vibe. Nice venue. Definitely recommend.

Briggs is our favourite restaurant. They are experiencing a small growing pain with a lot of new staff, but they are almost back to 100%! We had a lovely dinner with our server Ellis, and we are looking forward to going back. As we are returning customers, we know exactly how each meal tastes, so we are patient for the new kitchen staff to find their rhythm with the existing menu.

We had a great night with two of our friends. It happened to be right before they lift the mask restrictions and we walked in w/o masks and felt so liberated because it wasn't enforced upon us. Our server was helpful and pleasant. They weren't busy so we had their full attention pretty much.

Very disorganized and took 2 1/2 hours for our meal. We had to wait 20 minutes for a table even though we had a reservation. Then it took us half an hour to have our drinks served. We never received the waters we requested and then it took about 40 minutes after that to receive our appetizer (a single order or chicken wings which should be pretty simple). We received one of the three entrees and it took another half an hour for the other two entrees for our table to be served. Something to do with a system error and our meals were submitted on different chits to the kitchen?? All said with a 7:30 reservation we finally ate about 9:45. The food did taste good but the service was a disaster. I would never go back.

Our server was extremely lovely! Food was delish. 100% recommend the calamari and waygu sandwich!

But their current espresso right now, omg! It’s delish I almost went for a third serving 😍

Brought my partner there the next day just for the espressos!

Very cute place, can envision it being much more lively after covid.

Found this gem on TripAdvisor. Will definitely be BACK! The ambience was awesome, the service was energetic and excellent, the food excellent. Our favorite part though was the cocktails, they are the reason for my 5* rating. The whole table enjoyed the drinks immensely and was very impressed with the cocktail menu.
