We went to Briggs for date night but were not overly impressed with the place. During our meal we weren’t sure who was actually our server and found it hard to get the attention of the staff. My boyfriend ordered a steak with crab and bernaise sauce but when the food arrived it was missing both the crab and the sauce. When we finally got the attention of the staff his steak was cold and I was done eating. Overall the food was mediocre and the staff was not attentive. We won’t be back.
Nice decor though.
I had high hopes for this place, as it was rated 4 1/2 stars
The food wasn’t anything special.If you order the cheese fondue it’s not your normal fondue, it tastes like runny mushroom soup. Great service and very friendly staff.
I've been here for lunch half a dozen times and it's consistently good. I love the gnocchi, and the half chicken is tasty as well. I work in the area and will continue to visit for lunch.
Went for Mother’s Day brunch and the short rib gnocchi was delicious! Others ordered the Croque Madame, Breakfast Perogies, and Chorizo benny, which all looked equally tasty. One ordered bacon on the side, but for 2 pieces it didn’t seem worth the extra $5. Great ambiance, food, and service all around though!
Good restaurant with a lot of choices. We did a family style type dinner and enjoyed ourselves. We splurged for the big steak (99$) to share but found it to be rough in the end pieces so that took away from a better review.
Food had little flavour, was over cooked, and portion sizes were small. Server was not great, couldn't hear her and getting refills was difficult. Coffee was served cold.
Very busy, when we arrive we were seated at a high top table in the bar due to some group bookings in the restaurant. Not what I would consider for an special occasion dinner. My meal the rice tasted either day old or under done.
My husbands (paella ) had so much rice it was hard to find the protein.
We ordered a bottle of wine and were charge for a different wine. Only $2.00 more and did not notice until we were home.
Overall, a big disappointment, will not go back nor go back.
I would have been nice if someone advised of your big group booking so I could have made other arrangements and you would not have sealed your fate in losing a customer.
I love this place....the menu is great with lots of variety for everyone. Best Burgers, great steaks, awesome pastas, I really love the food!
Did I say I love this place....the staff are great too. So friendly and the service is good.
It's my new fave.
Patio to ourselves and a very nice view of the Calgary tower
I mostly enjoyed the patio except for factors outside of the establishments control: multiple fire trucks using their sirens, people smoking marijuana right beside the patio. The smell really ruined the experience for me. But the service was great as was the food.
If you can’t nail a steak sandwich I’m not sure I will try anything else
We had a less than spectacular meal in a less than wonderful atmosphere. The food was very average, at best. The burger was over cooked; the fries were over salted; the halibut was underwhelming. The noise level was high, as was the music, as if everyone had to talk more loudly to be heard over the music, the combination of which made it hard to hear anyone or anything. Our server was great, helpful and very nice; that's the only saving grace for the evening. I will not go back, even if there are no other options; not worth it!
We stopped in for poutine week to try out the lobster poutine, which was fantastic. We were intrigued by the cocktail menu and tried out the Oolong Lady and the Finch, both delicious, as were our entrees. Great food and service, would definitely return.
Service wasn’t the greatest. We had to look for our server to get our bill and generally there was an absence of restaurant staff. Burger was very good. Steak and eggs only okay.
Food came out really cold and did not taste good.
We visited Briggs for the first time before a concert at the Saddledome. Lots of parking nearby. The food was delicious -- handmade pasta and a yummy halibut sandwich. Happy hour prices on wine and beer. Good service, able to see the hockey game, nice pub decor.
We come here quite often. Chicken is unbelievable, best chicken I’ve ever had. Tried the local sausage dish this time. Fantastic!!!
Steaks were over done. Asked for medium rare and it was almost well done. With it being a business meal there was no time to send back. What bothered me the most was that the chef cut the steak into strips so he could clearly see it was well and not med/rare.
The food is really good. My friend & I are totally satisfied this restaurant.
Not great value
If you like french fries, they cover most of your plate
Had a great birthday in the private room on Tuesday. All meals were great and the server was super fun!
We visited for Big Taste and our lunch was great. We started with the tomato soup, then crab gnocchi and the most delicious white chocolate mousse with fruit for dessert. I don’t typically love white chocolate so I didn’t have high expectations for dessert but it was amazing! Coming back next week to try other stuff on the menu because the food on the table beside us looked really good too.
The big taste seemed be a distraction for staff. Not the regular service we're used. Food was still good.
Great place.. Great food with great staff.. Clean and fun environment.
Great foods, great service, and great atmosphere. My family enjoyed Tomahawk steak with brussel sprouts and poutine!! I wish I can go back but sadly I live in US!! I will go to this place again when I visit Calgary in the future.
Fantastic place. Made a last minute reso for 7 people for a birthday and upon entering they made sure to recognize it! The service was amazing except for a few small bumps, but at the end of the day all the staff there worked together as a team to ensure that the birthday girl was treated like a princess. Thank you!
Great night out, great service - dessert crust was overdone but the server made sure it was taken off the bill.
Fun atmosphere and very modern. Food was good not great.
Such a great restaurant, we always have been impressed by the food, ambience and service.
Food and service was very good. As a group we did share plates which was recommended by the server.
A great brunch spot to meet up with friends. Always find myeelf debating between choices and am never disappointed!
I was very excited to go here but was extremely disappointed...service was sub par and the food was not at all what I was expecting.
Ordered the 48oz Tomahawk Steak and half of it was fat and not edible. Definitely not worth the $100 price tag.
Side Vegetable came out cold and one of us had to wait for a beverage for 30mins cause the kept forgetting it.
Wrong glasses of wine were brought to the table and before we could even let the server know he was gone, customer service expectation for a place like this is far superior to what was actually given.
We are so impressed with this place. Happy hour beverages were delicious and the food was great with a wonderful menu. We will be back!
Very cozy and friendly staff with excellent recommendations when asked. Highly recommend! Also. I had sent my 16 year old daughter with a group of friends for a birthday and they loved it. Excellent place even on a 30$ budget! Best meals!
The food and drinks were delicious. Seated by the window in a booth was nice but it was freezing inside! Bring a coat!
Such a delicious brunch!
Celebrated our 10yr anniversary and it was great., Chad who attend to us was very pleasant. We
Ordered newf’s poutine, tomahawk, onion gravy and potato cake and it was delicious,.
Great food and very attentive staff. In the main lounge, it is very noisy and not good for a business meeting, but fine for friends.
The food is really delicious, staffes are very kind. The atmosphere is cozy.
Everything is perfect for eating with friends
The service was outstanding. The server was able to recommend food, knew the menu well and our water was constantly being filled. Even after we paid our bill and just sat at the table, he came back numerous times to fill our water.
