    The problem I had is with serivce the waiter too cold and he overcharged me the bill was 168.8 and he charged on the machine 170+ which is not honest nor professional. It’s not about the few pounds extra but this is called cheating and not great for a nice place like this

    Loved it! So lovely and comfortable to sit in. Surroundings beautiful and airy. Really liked the menu and every dish was delicious. Wonderful apple tart. One funny thing, our American cousin asked for an iced tea and we were told in all seriousness “we don’t have the ingredients for iced tea”. Apart from that would highly recommend

    Brasserie of Light is a favourite of ours, often preceeded by a spot of shopping in Selfridges. The Damien Hurst sculpture is something worth seeing. However, food and service are always excellent. The noise level might be a bit much for some, but on this occasion, the DJ was quite restrained, and conversation was not a problem. Prices are not too bad considering the location and quality. The menu has something for most tastes. Tuna tacos are great, and the lobster linguine is excellent.

    The decor takes your breath away, even through toilets are magnificent! We had a table by the window which was great. Service was fast and the menu very imaginative and the food was fabulous and good portions. Only grip was the waitress although pleasant and attentive didn't have a clue about the drinks and when we decided to get a bottle of prosecco instead of buying 4 glasses @ £17 however she was just about to order us a bottle of some Gran Cru champagne at £270 a bottle!

    I am a regular in Ivy Restaurants and have also eaten many times in The Brasserie of Light. Today I booked and arranged to bring a guest - her first time at the Brasserie of Light and as a fashion designer Ioknew she would like the Damian Hurst installations and the design of this beautiful restaurant. I was slightly delayed and telephoned to let the restaurant know but the recorded message said 15 minutes is OK so knew I would get there in time. My guest arrived a little before but wanted to wait for me befor sitting down but was told in no uncertain terms she needed to sit down or we would lose the table!! So she did but this is so rude! I arrived moments later within the 15 min period. We had not seen each other since before lockdown so were excitedly catching up when we were interrupted twice to order and told we should order because we only had a limited time to eat and someone else might need the table! We were 25 minutes into our booking. We felt pressured so ended up ordering a starter plate and ate. The restaurant busy but still not full with he empty tables around us until we left. So twice today we were ‘warned’ about losing our table!! I felt embarrassed by this attitude. I love the Brasserie but seriously sort out your staff attitude to service. There are ways to do this…
