If you love a destination restaurant and bar offering all day dining in a chic, Art Deco space set within Selfridges department store, Brasserie of Light is your place to be! If you love 1920s, and exceptional food, beverage and dessert - don't hesitate to book your table so long there are any available.

I had booked a table as it was my partners Birthday. And we had left it late to plan something. I had mentioned it was his Birthday and we had a lovely table overlooking Duke Street.
The staff were amazing, the food was absolutely delicious. We definitely will be going back again.
Thank you for a lovely evening.

Our table wasn’t ready and we were rushed through our meal when we finally got tonit to beat the 10pm curfew. Waiting in the bar area there was no social distancing and felt distinctly unsafe. Food is imaginative and well presented and the restaurant is buzzy but very noisy. Would not go back.

The waiter almost overcharged us and very shocked as we gave him a tip and this was something he didn’t check properly for such a high profile restaurant until I pointed it out.

My friend and I ordered two steaks medium rare. Mine was medium well and when I complained and compared with my friends. I was asked to repeatedly cut into my steak and argued with that it was indeed rare when it was clearly well done. I chuck it up to Covid Chaos!

One of my best dining experience in London so far, outstanding service, great ambience, superb location and food is the main reason you'll want to their a second time again. Highly recommend their duck dish from the mains and don't skip desserts! Loved it! Thanks Brasserie of light for making our day so special. Cannot wait to visit soon again 🧡💫

It’s a gorgeous place and I’ve never had a bad meal although the truffle risotto was not my favorite. Anytime I’m near Oxford Street I love meeting here for lunch!

Don’t miss the tuna tacos!

Great atmosphere combined with good food and excellent service makes for an excellent dining experience. I celebrated my birthday here with my family and we all loved it.
It is not overpriced as one may assume but just right for the more discerning diner. A lovely bar seating area adds to a very New York vibe.
Most of the tables have screens between them as part of their covid adjustments.
All in all, I would highly recommend dining here and a great Instagram photo location too!

We were running 10 min late, the staff made no fuss over it and escorted us to our ready table. Gave us enough time to order and let us know when the kitchen was closing. Starters came out extremely fast. There’s hand sanitizer spray on the table as well as dividers between tables. All staff wearing masks. Can’t really take pics in the bathroom due to covid (there was a staff member checking) & you had to wear facemask into the restaurant. Food was very filling we got a bottle of rose to share. It was my friends birthday so they brought out a small dessert for her with a candle and was lovely. Around 9.30 you have to pay and kitchen closes. Overall really lovely staff, atmosphere and food. I really had a great night!

Fun, buzzy brasserie. Good menu with lots of choice. Great side dishes. Dessert was outstanding. Service was efficient without being too fast.
Didn't particularly like the high seats but won't stop me returning as food was excellent.

I took my mum to the Brassiere for brunch and we had such a good time the food was amazing and the service was great. The only downside was we had to wait 15mins for our table to be cleaned despite booking and arriving on time.

Had a table booked for 3/10 at 9:00pm, location was hard to find so we arrived 15 minutes late upon arrival the staff were very rude and advised we could only have dessert. I was actually shocked as food still continued to come out of the kitchen, they rushed us and also the female waiter did not allow me to order more drinks even though there was plenty of time until closing.

She tried to justify it by saying they can not serve a certain amount of alcohol units which I was completely taken back by never had I heard of a restaurant saying such things.


Restaurant is nice but staff are horrible.

Enjoyable but I was celebrating a birthday in which I had notified them about prior to the booking, they emailed me saying all the staff will be aware and take care of my celebration. Not once did any staff ask me anything or attempt anything - even when my friends asked what was happening, they replied with, well the kitchens closed now. Not great and it but a bit of a dampener on my evening.

The good: COVID measures and ambiance.
The bad: a cocktail that smelled and tasted like a wet kitchen towel (we were not charged for it). And we ordered coffee with dessert, but had to order the coffee again AFTER.

The place is really popular. Ambiance is great. I do like the presentation of the food however it was a bit salty. I ordered the roast chicken and the crispy prawns as a starter.

During my visit, the place was not so busy. The gentleman that attended to me was really great and polite.
