Great food, fantastic wines and service. Unfortunately a few dishes weren’t available du to a faulty extractor, but the staff and food/wine more than compensated for this.
Thanks

I was expecting great things from Bright due to the glowing reviews. Sadly it did not deliver. The starters were actually all delicious but the mains were just average. Had we just stumbled across Bright, I think we would have all been pleasantly surprised, but as it is time out’s #5 London restaurant, one would expect more. Time out’s restaurant list is usually bang on. The beef shin was chewy and the extensive turbot lacked flavour and imagination. The service was good at first but after a short while the a pair were seated at the table next to us, whom it was obvious all the staff knew. As a result, their attention went overboard on the pair and we were left feeling a little bit neglected. Hopefully, this was all just a perfect storm of an off day in the kitchen and the unusual scenario of the staffs’ best mates being next to us and other patrons experiences will be better and live up to the hype. None of our party will be rushing back, especially considering it was not cheap. The wine list was extensive and good, albeit expensive - I just wish we hadn’t ordered an expensive bottle to compliment what we thought was going to be extra special food. Overall, it was good. Just sadly well below expectations.

We went there on a Sunday evening with my wife.
A few of the dishes we wanted to order were not longer available, being late and them being closed the next day, so they did not have ingredients in stock. Frustrating as it might be, it is a marker that they care not to waste or use frozen goods. However, as we waited between our starters and mains, they offered 2 free starters as a gesture to apologise, which we felt was thoughtful and appreciated.
The staff was friendly and knowledgeable on the wine front, which was what brought us there in the first place. Their wine menu is incredible in breadth and quality, but I would love to see a few more options to order by glass as it is an opportunity to try several new things without committing to a £60 bottle.

Third time at this restaurant and the menu is yet again simple but subtly surprising. Together with the usual unique selections of wines to pair, the experience was very smooth

We loved our dinner at Bright. The venue is beautiful and has a laid back atmosphere, but feels buzzing and exciting.

The staff are all very attentive and knowledgable and gave fantastic service!

The food was delicious - super interesting menu with beautiful flavours.

All in all an amazing evening and would 100% recommend. We will be back!

THANKS!

Always a total pleasure. The food is a excellently cooked, well balanced, and makes for a wonderful meal no matter how many are in your party. Either sharing or solo meal. The wine list is stellar, take friends to help explore the offerings. WIll be returing as ofter as possible. Thank you to all the team.

Food - Probably one of the best places I've been to. All the meats were cooked to perfection (Fish/Chicken) - hard to get right, but Bright balanced the cooking very well to perfect tenderness.
Services - Very attentive staff at all levels from comfort, to recommendations.
Ambiance - Smaller restaurant with a very energetic vibe, but definitely not a quiet place.
Would come again!

We visited for a late lunch on a Saturday. The service was excellent throughout, we were given good advice on how to structure the meal as well as wine and food recommendations. Our table most enjoyed the starters/snacks and the desserts (we had all of them) and the pollack main. I loved the two pastas, but those dishes had slightly less impact. The meal was part of a great day in London Fields.

Great wine, interesting food despite my natural horror of sharing and never knowing how much to order as I feel I am urged to order too much. Weird congratulatory tone on ordering like I entered a competition...no one topped up our wine, a bugbear of mine.

Delightful service, lovely food, good wine selection with a some wonderful funky natural wine (as well as some good options for more traditional palates), great ambiance for catching up with friends (not too loud). The guys there even stopped by friend’s bike from being nicked and left a note on it for him to check the steering. All round fabulous experience!

Excellent food, excellent wine and excellent service. This is my favourite restaurant of 2019.

All the dishes we tried were great. Menu changes frequently but if you can, you must order fired squid sandwich.

Amazing food, simpel but the flavors and dishes are very creative and delicious. Prices are worth it and the portions are big. So really a lovely dinner place - tip: take the fried squid sandwich, the veggie fondue and basically all the pasta's and chocolate. Totally in love. Also very good wines.

The Service and atmosphere was really good! The food was quite disappointing because the flavours of the dishes did not match with each other and my stomach felt quite ill when we were eating at Bright and that lasted for two days. We had high expectations but the food needs to be improved!
