Another wonderful meal at this fabulous restaurant, and I was particularly pleased my request for a window table was fulfilled. Thank you!

I’ve eaten here on several occasions but feel Standard’s are slipping. My food wasn’t very hot but not bad enough to send back.
It is very crowded and noisy and you are hassled as you approach the 2 hour booking time.
I appreciate it’s a commercial operation but I’ve not experienced this at other Ivy restaurants.

Waiter messed up order. Took 20 mins for him to tell us one of our dishes wasn’t available. Turned out he had also forgotten to put in our order. In fairness one of the other senior said she had spotted something was wrong and came over to see us to find out what.

The experience was too bad. The waitresses aren’t professional in dealing with customers. The waitress skirt was not clean. The burger buns were not fresh and dry. The burger has been replaced after little argument. The receipt has been double charged to reflect the burger replaced. Finally, the receipt came with a discretionary service fee I did’t want to pay.

While the food itself wasn’t bad, our overall New Year’s Eve experience at Brasserie of Light was quite unpleasant. The restaurant hired a live DJ who played appallingly loud (at dance club volume) and appallingly bad electronic music all evening, making table conversation essentially impossible. We mentioned this to one of the backwaiters, who sympathised and told us that they had a headache after working there all evening.

The main waiters managed to be both unavailable and pretentious.

Gorgeous food and a beautiful setting. This is my son’s favourite restaurant - he has been a few times and wanted me to experience it, and it didn’t disappoint. The one slight gripe is that the tables are very close together so it does feel like you’re either eavesdropping on someone else’s conversation and/or their bottom is in your dinner as they squeeze past to go to the loo. However overall it was fab and I would recommend.

Everything is top notch. Brassiere is essentially a restaurant in a department store. In most places that combo seems like a formula for disaster. In Selfridges, it’s pitch perfect. The ambience, the lighting, the service, all were wonderful. Most important, the food and preparation was FANTASTIC! And, the DRINKS!!!! OMG! It was all so good that I visited twice. Fantastic place and a must visit if you’re near Bond Street.

The food and service are always outstanding. However, the noise level is quite high and the tables have minimum distance between each other.

The window seating wasn’t all pleasant - very crowded and crammed between one table and next. But the highlight was the food - amazing taste! We ordered vegetarian options they were all good. The toilet was glam but please can you take care of the smell. Thank you!

What a delightful experience! Lovely staff, I can’t remember the name of the young girl who looked after us but she was super attentive and accommodating. Food was really tasty and good value for money. I have been there many times but this was by far my best experience there. Recommend the heavenly desserts. Well done! Keep up good work guys.

Room is lovely. Music too loud for conversation. Service is good. Food is fine. It's basically a restaurant in a department store, so would only visit if I fancied a bite while shopping. Would not go there otherwise.

I was not impressed with the attention to serving us
I have eaten many times at this local eatery
Side orders came after main course
Bill was given to me before my coffee
Very amateurish

The tables for 2 people are too close together and hence there is no privacy. I saw a person squeeze past the table next door and his jacket tail went through the scrambled egg of the next table.
Remove one table for two on each side of the central divide to give more space.

Was extremely busy and the table was not ready at the tome it was booked. We arrived early and there was nowhere to sit at the bar so we came back and still had to wait for the table.
It was heaving with people and if you along the back area it is almost impossible to hear the person opposite you speak and so wouldn’t ever sit there again.

Food was good although the french fries/chips are a bit pathetic.
