Brasserie of Light is quite beautiful in its design. The bar area and bathrooms are stunning.
The welcome is warm and the food is almost the standard of any of this groups sister restaurants.
Only thing is that I still felt that I was sitting in a department store rather than a high end restaurant.
It’s perfect if you’re shopping and would like a special lunch or dinner, however I would not rush back to eat there again independently of shopping at Selfridges.

Very “in” at the moment this restaurant certainly makes a point of being stylish. Luckily the food was also very good - the starters and desserts especially. Service was excellent. It was a very enjoyable and entertaining lunch!

We waited 20minutes to order, a further 5/10 when needing to request sauce and a further 20 minutes when requesting the bill before having waited a further 10 mins for the machine. This is my 4th visit and whilst the restaurant was new I was forgiving but this is ridiculous. Slow service and lack of staff. We dined for over £100 and whilst the food is great the service lets it down. Unlikely to return.

Came here for my 21st birthday and I was treated so well. I never write reviews but I felt I needed to for Brasserie! Not only is the food affordable , but the quality and flavours were outstanding. I was also given a free cocktail by the lovely waiter who went out his way to get it for me , he also brought me a tart with a lit candle on it. There was a live dj and every worker greated me and my friends with smiles. So lovely. The restaurant is very beautiful and is located in the perfect spot! I will definitely go again!

Beautiful meal and location, food was perfect , except they tried to charge us for 3 extra gins which we didn’t order and made it feel like we were wrong and not them. Then didn’t apologize after , experience had been 10/10 before that but really killed the mood as we were leaving

Love the decor and the food. Only bug bear.... the two person tables are just too close together. Even if you lost one two seater it would give people a bit more privacy and space.

this is the second time i have dined her this year and both times have been fantastic. whilst the ambience of the restaurant (with a shout out to the massive damien hirst pegasus sculpture) is obviously breath-taking and is guaranteed to make your instagram grid look amazing, the food and service are also stand out.
i have been for dinner and lunch and on both occasions despite a full house the service has been impeccable and also friendly. the staff know the menu well and offer great advice and also are personable - which you don't always find in the nicer restaurants of london!
As for the food -its brilliant - i'm vegetarian and they have great tasty options and my meat loving friends also gave rave reviews.
If you have friends from out of town that you want to impress but don't want to spend a fortune - take them here for a night to remember.

Tables are too close to one another, service is poor and the food is average; starters and the side dishes were nice but the mains so so.. Good ambience though, better to come in a group so you get a both and more sitting space. Not sure I'd go back there though, maybe if I'm shopping and would pop in for a drink..

I thought the 30 minute wait for our reserved table at 9:15 was unnecessary. There was no apology for the delay and we were merely directed towards the bar. Nor did they offer to take our coats. Both of our steaks were very undercooked. After I asked for mine to be brought up to medium, it came back well done. Quite disappointing apart from a good atmosphere

Wonderful food, beautiful room, service needs a bit of tightening up and the tables are painfully close together.

Couldn’t fault the food. Delicious starters of chicken dumplings and long, paper thin cuts of smoked salmon with rye bread. Stunning blackened cod with a yuzu sauce. Incentive cherry and chocolate desserts. Prices not crazy for really high end, yet generously served courses.

Service needs professionalising a bit - had to remind the waiter to bring things a couple of times. Don’t go if you want privacy - tables uncomfortably close together making it almost impossible to get in and out of your seat without knocking glasses over on the adjoining table. It also meant that the waiters brush up against you when serving the tables on either side of you. I consider this level of table-packing to be greedy.
