Bridges has a stunning location, overlooking the fishing boats in False Creek and the mountains of the North Shore. The second-floor dining room features a vaulted ceiling highlighting the original beams and trusses of this 1920&30s building, with floor to ceiling windows capturing every part of the view. The downstairs bistro and pub offer a casually elegant atmosphere, while the chef presents a menu featuring fresh seafood, rich meats and local produce. During the summer, our dock patio offers one of the best views of False Creek and the Burrard Bridge in Vancouver. Reservations are for the downstairs restaurant only.

Patio dining on my birthday. It was windy and the heater wasn’t working. Are as fast we could. Though when I booked I mentioned it’s my birthday that night but no acknowledgement. Food was delicious and we are quickly because the wind didn’t help warm us up.

Went for my Friends 50th, we were seated and completed ignored. Tried to get nicely ask for service and no one came, waited 25 mins and left. We are supporting local with Covid and thought we’d have a great time. Unfortunately we didn’t. No care attitude.

Had reservations for 7 PM. We were concerned about the stated 5 min grace period. Didn’t get to our table until 10 mins after reservation time. Food arrived fast, however, we weren’t quite finished with our appetizers, and the entrees already came out.

The service was average. The server didn’t come by to check in on us to see how the food was until we were almost done. We felt like we weren’t noticed much and not checked in on. The server had passed by our table multiple times during the course of our meal. I was also not offered another drink until I was long finished my first one. We also had no water an alternative drink.

We also didn’t feel like we got value for the food.

Unfortunately we did not have a positive experience. Food was over priced and mediocre. We had a reservation but were seated in a bar area with a draft from an open door. We were moved but second seating was noisy snd a mouse appeared twice and ran under our table. Won’t be back Very disappointing as we rarely get out for dining so this wasn’t a good experience. Service was pleasant.

As soon as myself and my wife ordered our drink and said we didn’t want food nobody returned to our table for over 40 minutes. When our drinks had been gone 5 minutes I had to walk up to the host at the front and ask for our bill as nobody had come over.

The outdoor patio space is great BUT it can get some “make up” to the area, including having more “working outdoor gas heater”. The calamari is just so-so and small portion.

Terrific location in Granville Island with unobstructed views of False Creek, the City and bridges. The patio is one of the best on a nice day. Food was very good but serving sizes small. Service was attentive, friendly and cheerful. Good local beer.

Bridges has always been a favourite spot because of its option of dining on the outdoor deck on sunny days. Unfortunately, the ambience isn’t what it was in the past while dining indoors only because of the safety restrictions during Covid. However, aside from that, the staff were very attentive and fun.

It was an added perk that not only did we arrive in time for Happy Hour but also 1/2 price on certain wines. Bridge's continues to be one of our favourites when in we are in the area. We are very much looking forward to when the patio opens.

Hi Glenn, I am very happy to see that you were able to enjoy our Wine Wednesday promotion. It is a unique offering compared to other wine promotions in the city. As for patio season, you can expect tables to be available every day either under the heaters or out on the dock ( or both!). I look forward to welcoming you back soon! Cheers.

Went for dine out, was a bit disappointed in the food quality. Food service was a bit slow and was warm on arrival not hot. The view makes up for a lot but for the price rather just go for happy hour

The bridges I recall from a few years ago was a vibrant, lively, well-dressed, upscale crowd/place. I always had a great time and amazing food. When dine out would start, we would select Bridges as one of our options.

The atmosphere in Bridges this time around was a very stark contrast to what I remember, partially due to the pandemic and maybe some % due to change in the vibe of the place??

The real disappointment was the food, it wasn't the high-quality food I remember having there before. The food was 1/5, there can be significant improvement in this area.

If I see a newer review in a few months saying things have improved, I would consider going back. I have so many great memories there and it would be a shame for such an iconic place end up like this.

It was unfortunate that management had not thought to put more staff on for the Dine Out as the waiter was very busy and the kitchen could not keep up. There were several complaints from tables around us and it wasn't the staff's fault yet they were the receivers of ill feelings.

Took a girl I like here for our second date, she loved the food and I loved the company. Definitely a recommendation for any guy or gal looking for a place to eat for date night. The menu may be a little expensive (average prices for similar restaurants) but the food is good and they are very COVID friendly.

I was very disappointed at the complete lack of decor, plants, pictures, anything to make the room inviting and/or attractive. Service was adequate but not warm and attentive. My friend ordered eggs Benedict and had to return the order TWICE because it was served cold. And then she was charged for it on top of that. Of course, we refused to pay. Very sad from when Bridges used to be one of the best places to go in Vancouver. Was a destination point. .

Enjoyed the meal. It was devine eso the aji tuna taco.
All the meals we had (lingcod bowl. Ahu tuna burger and crab cakes. Triple chocolatr cake) were delicious. Priced as expected. House red wine was perfect. We sat right away where we wanted to sit. You can see the city view wherever you sit. Great service. Would love to dine here again. Highly recommended.

The spicy tuna sandwich was not spicy and it was completely raw. The waiter did ask if we are okay with it being pink because it is "a little war in the middle" but it completely raw! The sandwich had no taste, I could see some sort of a sauce in it but could not taste anything.

We were specifically asked if we wanted to book a table outdoors or indoors, we chose outdoors but found out they have completely removed all tables in the balcony and outdoor area and so our only option was indoors. The outdoor sitting area is the only reason we chose bridges in the first place and despite it being in Feb, it was a sunny warm day.

I No vegetables with steak and fries..how cheap is that!.left the tails on the shrimp for seafood , riggatone...should not have to use my hands to eat pasta. We have gone every year. Dressed up nice , enjoyed the view. But never again, service was lackluster. Ambiance not there anymore, Food quality sub par. I felt like calling to complain the next day. But instead ill take my business elsewhere.
