    We shared the chicken liver mousse-hands down the best we have sampled, the tuna crudo-bursting with citrus flavor and freshness, and the wagyu beef carpaccio-which was very good, however it did not wow us like the other two. We chose the smashed potatoes and the beets for added sharing vegetables-both were excellent. The potatoes were crisped deliciously on the outside, soft inside and the creamy sauce and greens mixed together with each bite was wonderful. The beets were flavorful and the perfect doneness(not mushy or too hard)and together with the creamy bites of cheese and crunchy pistachios-what a great combination! My husband had the strip steak which was done to perfection-the crispy on the outside with a beautiful mid rare center….and the sauce(ah jus or gravy) again, so tasty. I had the halibut. The outside was crisped nicely. Halibut is very difficult to prepare, and unfortunately mine was slightly overdone, however the leek sauce that it sat in made up for this imo. Oh my that sauce was 200% deliciousness….so much so I wanted to lick the bowl. We then shared the banana pie and the chocolate mille feuilles. My husband bet on the banana pie, which was good, however, we both agreed that the mille feuille was hands down the winner. Thin pastry leaves stacked together with strips of decadent chocolate, some peanut crunch and cold creamy ice cream sandwiched in between-if you enjoy all these flavors, it’s a heavenly dessert! Although they have a super cute cocktail list(some of which are pre mixed), a great mock tail list which is rare to see, and an extensive beer selection, the only other detail which could take away from this experience was a limited wine menu. There wasn’t a wine manager or sommelier on shift for a late Saturday evening(8:30 pm), however our server was able to inquire and helped us find a lovely chenin blanc from the short cellar list. Overall 5 stars for incredible flavors. Well done Bridgette Bar!

    We went to Bridgette Bar to celebrate our anniversary. The service was amazing, and the staff signed a card for our anniversary (really thoughtful. Their cocktails are AMAZING. For entrees we ordered the Beef carpaccio, oysters, garlic bread and eggplant fries and everything was delicious. The main plates were ok, the lamb and the duck were a bit too salty :( The service and the ambience is great. I really recommend and I’ll go back to try other cocktails and their pizza.

    This is, in my opinion the best restaurant in Calgary right now. The place is very nicely decorated, the ambience is great. A tad noisy if you are looking for a quiet evening. But did not bother us. Comfy tables and chairs/sofas. Service was phenomenal. Our server Sever was great. She quickly understood us and was not afraid to recommend. Loved that. Her wine pairing was very welcome. She was on top of things and attentive while giving us our space. Food was great. Every bite. The chicken live mouse, wow. All our appis, really nice. Main dishes even better. The duck… you need to have it. Deserts were good. Many people have recommended and needed to try and loved it. Would definitely come back.

    Not my first time here, and Bridgette Bar continues to impress. The service is consistently excellent as is the food and cocktails. If you want to indulge try the cheese curd garlic toast - heaven. My shrimp and calamari pasta dish was perfect al dente and very flavorful. The charred broccoli salad was also delicious. The Malted Chocolate Mille-feuille dessert was a beautiful combo of chocolate, ice cream, salted peanuts and crispy pastry. I love the atmosphere at the restaurant as it is always bustling. The hardwood floors and exposed brick walls as well as the open kitchen add to the fun vibe.

    We went to Bridgette Bar for my birthday and also to celebrate getting married. The staff went above and beyond and gifting us a card signed by everyone. The food was amazing as usual. We tried a number of different cocktails as well and they were all delicious. We will be back for the Rolling Canoe and banana pie!
