We can't say enough good things about bridges! They adapted floor plans, meals, drink menus, everything to suit us, no problems, no questions asked. Even with cloudy weather the view was amazing. They saved appetizers for us and ensured we got to eat our meals, and didn't miss a ... View more thing. We even got to have our tasting dinner with Kate, whom we instantly got along with! David is server of the decade, a crowd pleaser, a laugh generator, an open mic shutter downer in the clutch. Oh and can't forget the chef. My god, the food! we got SO many complements and comments on the venue and the food. I felt that we were able to give our guests who have travelled literally from around the world, the party they deserved! When it was all said and done, our outstanding debts were minimal and there were no hidden fees or unexpected charges. They even lowered the price of one of our wines because they were able to buy it at a cheaper price than they had previously. I mean, these guys are truly amazing. I am relieved the whole shebang is over, but I will truly miss working with them. I don't often write reviews but given how this massive event went off without a hitch, I think they deserve the recognition! Thank you to the hard working people of Bridges, we appreciate it so much!! xo - Karen + Jak

We live in Toronto, but were getting married in Vancouver. Many of our guests were from out of town, and we wanted to make sure our wedding showed off the beauty of Vancouver. We wanted a venue that we could hold both the ceremony and reception in, somewhere that was very ... View more "Vancouvery", and where it was easy for our guests to travel to from YVR. Bridges was perfect! They were very flexible with working with us and things that we wanted. We requested specific seating inside during ceremony, an oyster bar during cocktail reception, and other little details throughout the day. The communication throughout the process was quick and helpful, and everything turned out perfectly the day of. So many of our guests commented on how great the food, drinks and venue was. Definitely would recommend Bridges to anyone looking for the perfect Vancouver venue!

We held our (same sex) wedding and reception at the Bridges Restaurant in July 2017. I cannot say enough about how well everything was handled. The only surprises were good ones. I was surprised that the cost was significantly lower than at other venues offering similar menus, ... View more views, decor, etc. Our wedding was quite small, only 15 guests, but the venue could easily accommodate a large wedding. I have no hesitation in recommending Bridges Restaurant for a wedding.

The view is absolutely priceless! The food and service that we got was worth every penny. Paige is the site event coordinator and she was wonderful to deal with, very detail oriented and responded very promptly to any questions/concerns. Kristyanne the manager was wonderful! We ... View more had a wedding crasher and she picked up on it so quickly and escorted the guy out without making a scene. The timing of the food was perfect. The staff made sure our guest had a full drink at all times and was so professional. I can't thank them enough! We got to meet Chef Dan during our tasting, we had a few concerns and he dealt with them so professionally and made changes to the menu (just for us!)...in the end the meal was perfect!! The steak was juicy and cooked to perfection and the halibut was out of this World! During cocktail hour, we had canapes passed around....you MUST get the wild mushroom pizzette!! We got so much positive feedback about the food from our friends and family! Parking and getting to the venue was a little hectic at times. Especially if you plan on having your wedding during peak tourist season. Just warn your guests to leave ample time to get there and they will be fine!
