Brilliant place and food and atmosphere!
Just we had booked table at 5pm just when they open so we felt a bit miscommunication between staff as we were told about special 4 times from different member.
But overall apart this little misconception all the rest was just fantastic!

We had a fantastic meal here last Saturday. All courses were very tasty and well presented. We particularly liked the John Dory main. All the staff were friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Many thanks too for our Anniversary wishes and surprise complimentary Prosecco! Highly recommended.

Great food and a lovely ambiance apart from disgruntled diners irritated at lack of available waiting staff. The few who were working were run off their feet on a busy Sunday night, not for the first time I get the impression they badly need more hands on deck. Thankfully our waitress (Amy?) went above and beyond to make sure we were looked after amidst the general chaos. Great food and individuals can only do so much though and Bresson really need to look at their staffing levels, I’d imagine many who were there that night won’t be back due to these issues with lack of staff.

Overall a good experience. Can’t fault the food or service.
Being very picky but the bread basket needs a bit of a lift - looked like slices of ‘sliced pan’ type bread and they could do a little better on that. But minor detail.

This was the first time we dined in Bresson and we have no hesitation in saying we had an outstanding meal. The meat, sirloin steak, and lamb fillet were the highest quality and the sauces and accompanying vegetables were delicious. A wonderful evening.

This is a very good neighbourhood bistro. I have eaten here at least 10 times for lunches and dinners. The menu is constantly updated with some signature dish staples. The staff are truly excellent, know the menu inside out and very friendly.

There is a good vibe in the evenings here too.

This was my second time at Bresson and although the food, ambience and service was as before, the experience for me was marred somewhat by the Maitre D’s attitude towards us. We were a group of 6 ladies and I got the distinct impression the entire evening was being rushed - everything was very hurried from giving our order onwards. We attended for the 6.30 sitting and had vacated our seats by 8.45. At an average cost per person of €90 I feel your meal should not feel rushed. We will be careful in the future to book a restaurant that does not do this.

We were rushed to order our food and then pretty much ignored for water etc.
Nearly had my head taken off with a water jug.
Food was rich sludgy and tasteless

Excellent evening in Bresson. Staff especially Abbey took amazing care of us throughout our meal. Food was delicious, still licking my lips. Starters huge, you could nearly share one between 2 people. Staff very pleasant throughout the evening. We will be back very soon

This was my third visit to Bresson. While the food is good, the staff are nice and the venue itself is very comfortable and pleasant, it just doesn't quite live up to the price. That's not to say we won't be back again.

Need to review pricing - would not be rushing back - we felt prices too high for local restaurant

Also need to address ongoing maintenance of toilet facilities throughout the evening - i was brought up to believe the toilets were a reflection of the restaurant standards

Staff were lovely

Ordered pinot noir, got Côtes du Rhône instead, but servers wouldn't mention, just brought, thought one wouldn't notice, i presume. the main dish was not served warm/hot, had to send it back to kitchen. Service really is so and so...Food is tasty but can enjoy really when not warm.
