    We have been to the new Bridges twice this month. Both times the food was great, the service timely, wonderful ambience at the Granville Market overlooking the water. The Humbolt squid is melt in your mouth and the beer selection stellar.

    It was a busy Sunday on the Island, and I made a reservation for 2 at 1 PM. They seated us in a crowded, nosey bar area. The whole seating process is very regimented and robotic - not the best ambiance. Staff were fine once seated.

    We went for brunch and sat on the outdoor patio in the shade. I ordered bacon and scrambled eggs. It was OK but not great. My fellow diners ordered more lunch style items and were satisfied with their food. Bridges remains a great location but if you are wanting a great brunch I’d go to Breakfast and Co.

    The location is superb especially with the sunset on the marina and cityscape! The food was tasty. I really liked the hummus and pizza dough bread served with it. The dessert was good like a Reese’s peanut butter cup. Green goddess bowl was delicious and creative. The service was prompt but the servers forgot a few things that are essential for a great meal and experience. They had to be reminding a few times. It looked sufficiently staffed at the time.

    Starting off with the views from the restaurant they’re amazing. We were sat outside so it was nice and quiet. Our server was also very sweet and the service was pretty quick. I loved the overall vibe of the place. For my main I ordered the Cajun chicken burger with a side of truffle waffle fries. The food was good but it was a little too salty, not sure if it’s always like this. It was the same case for my parents they got the halloumi veg sandwich and the chickpea veggie burger. For dessert I got the chocolate peanut butter cup which was so good but very heavy and filling. I never got a chance to try any of their seasonal cocktails but they looked so good. I hope to come back soon and be able to try them.

    Birthday lunch! Our server was lovely but very busy so it took about 15 minutes to order our drinks. Tuna poke bowl is the best I've had. Would love if you could add a dry riesling to your menu although the Chardonnay was very nice. So much fun!

    Of course the location, view, setting was spectacular. I will say they honored our request to be on outside on the deck. We sat upstairs and it was wonderful. The Hostess was great as was one of the two servers was attentive and lovely, the other seems to fine us an annoyance. Sadly the food was not great. Eggs Benny is just that a classic - don't mess with something not broken. Adding an onion jam frankly ruins the flavor. It would be nice to have been offered the old stand by as a choice. Tots? Fun I guess, but not outstanding. I would go again, but ask more questions on exactly what I was getting.

    Had not been here since the merge of Bridges / Tap & Barrel. Making a reservation was easy and made all the difference on an extremely busy summer Saturday. Food was great and service was prompt. Nice renovations done to the building and love that it still retains some of the Bridges feel.
