Briggs Kitchen + Bar
A wonderful meal with excellent food and a very efficient and at tentative server
First person to the restaurant 10 minutes prior to reservation time and got probably the worst table in the restaurant. And it got worse as they sat a table of 7 beside us and we could not hardly talk and be heard. There were many empty tables with views or some room. The lady beside us was sitting on the front of her chair and had it pushed back into the small walk space and we had a glass table as a barrier beside us so we could not hardly get out to go to the washroom. Service was not great but definitely not the worst I have had. Food was perfect- tasty fresh came warm to the table . Waiter did not know if there were specials or what was written on the chalkboard out front
Ambiance was good. Servers were friendly and nice. Ordered a steak but came with cold plate. Plate should’ve been warmed up before serving. Overall, nothing outstanding but nothing outrageous.
The food and service were very good, our only complaint is that it's pretty noisy in there and the tables were very close together where we sat so it felt like we were talking to the people on both sides of us and hearing their conversations too. But if you want good food and service, definitely recommended.
Went for brunch had the pierogies and the steak both were super flavorful and delicious
Our server was very good , personable, and knowledgeable.
The roast chicken was amazing and the service was very good
I had previously visited Briggs for dinner and as a meat lover, was quite impressed with their menu and taste.
On this particular occasion, I dined there for lunch. Right off the bat, our cutlery had food stuck to it, and was evident it hadn't been checked to ensure it had been properly cleaned. We notified the server, and had it switched.
The lunch menu seemed short and sweet. Our table tried the calamari (as recommended by the server), paella, and burger.
The calamari was quite chewy and lacked flavor. The paella was a very small portion and lacking the unique qualities that make paellas delicious. There was also a small hair in our paella that basically ruined the meal for me. I get it, it happens. But for the class of the restaurant, and following the cutlery incident, it was a complete loss for me to the point that we didn't even tell the server.
The burger was apparently amazing though. I recommend sticking to the meats if you go here.
You guys are great!
I ordered a side of mayo with my fries. You guys don’t mess around with your mayo portions. Thanks for getting my mayo:fries ratio right on the first time.
Mayo is the best condiment out there and is important to my enjoyment of fries. It drives me nuts when I have to order and second and sometime third portion of mayo with my fries.
Service and food was great.
We had the server with the baby man-bun not the big one.
At first we were confused but he cleared that up.
They set my girlfriend up with a free chocolate cake for her birthday. She doesn’t like chocolate cake that much. But I do! Guess it’s a good thing I’m writing this review!
You’re probably wondering if this is a serious review. It is. Thanks for taking care of us <3
Quiet table, excellent food, prompt service. Excellent location for client lunch.
Food great, server must have been new
The food was excellent and our server was great. Tomahawk steak was so tasty.
Our server was amazing. He was very attentive, friendly & helpful. The lobster poutine was delicious. Overall a very enjoyable experience.
Really happy with the ambiance and the food. Our server was excellent today - super professional!
We were disappointed in our meal. It was cold and dry
I enjoyed a nice tomahawk steak there with my guest from Korea who was passing through on her holiday through western Canada.
Good steak, quite a novelty. Our server, who I believe was Lynn was absolutely superb.
The service was really bad. had to involve the manager and he agreed with the situation. The food used to be better. For some reason the smokiness was missing. that is why i go to that place
I would definitely recommend Briggs is our friends and family, it is out Sunday brunch go to! Aways great food and service!
Too many bones in the salmon but otherwise the rest of the food was good
Chicken was dry but they fixed it asap
It was too expensive for the position servings. The price didn't reflect the true value of the food ticket price.
Terrific patio seating on this spring day with ample room to enjoy great food.
And our server, Jordan, was outstanding!! She was real, helpful, and generous!
7 people ordered a variety of items from the menu. Cocktails were excellent. Everyone agreed that the food was outstanding. Highly recommend.
Tomahawk steak was cooked well-done and we had to send it back. The second time was better, but it was still overcooked.
Excellent food and excellent service !! Would definitely go back when in Calgary again.
Our server was very polite and attentive. Our food was very good and came in a timely manner. I would definitely return
I ate at Briggs a few years ago and remember the food and atmosphere being fantastic. This most recent visit, both myself and a girlfriend ordered the Hangar steak (medium rare). Mine was rare and hers was well-done. When I notified the server at the end of the meal with half of my steak still left, she let the chef know and he sent his apologies. Nothing else was done. It was disappointing. The cocktail I ordered was lovely, but a friend didn't enjoy both of her cocktails because they were watered down. At this time, I'm not willing to come back because there are too many other wonderful restaurants out there to choose from.
The waitress was super nice. The atmosphere is awesome. The food is not over the top great. It's very hit and miss.
The restaurant decor is very nice. The waiter was ok - probably could have been more responsive. The paella was ok - I've had better even though it was recommended as being excellent.
The wine was good.
Excellent service, friendly helpful staff and the meal was amazing!!
Steak was good
But it was smaller than I expected
Great place for a date. The atmosphere was casual and the food was great. Our server was a young guy who knew his stuff. My only note is the noise level is quite high so if you’re looking for something intimate this may not be the place.
Great food, great waiter, nice house wine and rose. We will be back!
Presentation was very good, portions were decent. The Tomahawk and salmon didn't disappoint however the beef rib was a bit dry so disappointed with that dish. The mushroom gnocchi was very good...soft, flavorful and perfectly cooked but too little to be called a main course dish.
A bit disappointed in our recent visit to Briggs. The menu choices have been pared down and the service was not up to previous standards. The food (mostly burgers) we ordered was good.
Such garbage service by both the server and the manager I don’t even want to waste more time on explaining.
Good atmosphere and service staff. Food was yummy and drink selection was decent. Only complaint was the lunch menu had very limited choices.
Server was excellent. Cheerful and engaging. Made us our own custom cocktails! 3 Versions of a ‘Baby Face’: iced tea and gingerbeer. Baby Face is my oldest daughters nickname (by her younger sister).
My wife and i brought our new born baby and had the wings and burgers. started with cocktails. everything was good. we'll be back.
