Amazingly looked after as always by Francis, Rory and Jono. Amazing meal, service, vibes and 10/10 on sorting a pasta out for the toddler that they didn’t even know was coming. X

Best wine bar in East London hands down. Food is always perfectly paired and never to stuffy.

Ridiculously good eats again today @bright_restaurant in #londonfields #hackney and service on point

We ordered one of everything on the menu and the amount was perfect for 4 of us. The bottarga pasta and quail were amazing but the desserts blew me away! Passion fruit, coffee and muscovado meringue was 🤯 and I was ecstatic to find pao de lo on the menu after losing the amazing @tabernamercado (although Bright serves theirs cold).

Each time I go I leave wondering why I’ve waited so long to go back.

We understand these are tough times and it's hard for everyone, but we were expecting something better. To be fair, I'm disclosing that we had booked the table for 7pm before the curfew was introduced. However, I called a couple of days in advance to ensure the booking could still be honoured and was told it could. We were welcomed by a nice friendly guy and then handed over to a terribly unfriendly waitress who rushed us through the food and attempted several times to take my plate away while I was clearly still eating. This made the entire experience a lot less enjoyable. We had 2 menus, 2 aperitifs and a couple of glasses of wine each for a total of £163, including service charge. The set menu was good but we had good food in the area for better value for money. My partner loved the fish while I found the duck was the highlight.

The menu wasn't the expected. In their website they announced a set menu, but when we arrived it was another one. No meat option for the mains.

We booked for the high tables and enjoyed the á la carte menu. Food was phenomenal and we ate most of the stuff on the menu. Wine was next level as well. Runs you a pretty penny but if you want to treat yourself then its well worth it.

Came here for Saturday lunch. The food is cooked simply but really fresh and delicious. The prawns, mussels and corn in honey butter were the highlights. Bright uses quality produce and it really shows. Waiting staff were friendly and attentive. Good ventilation within the restaurant. Food is pricey here but you pay for the quality. Would highly recommend and will definitely be coming back.

We had such a great time at Bright. I thought perhaps, it might be winding down at 9pm when we arrived for our pre-booked table but the whole place felt alive with diners enjoying food and drink all around us.
I felt especially happy and welcomed by the staff who obviously knew their stuff and actually made us feel so welcome! Waiting staff are usually rushed off their feet but the staff here were excellent.
Yummy food, down to earth service, timeless decor and delicious wine. Really special, thanks BRIGHT.

Excellent service and vibe. We had the set menu of 4 courses. The starters were lovely and fresh. The soup was really interesting flavour-wise (in a good way). The squid good though maybe slightly under-cooked in parts. The lamb for both of us was disappointing, quite chewy even though it was very pink. Dessert was a bowl perfect for summer :)

Overall the experience was excellent.

We arrived early for our late dinner reservation on Saturday evening. The table with the preceding booking had not left and were lingering over their pudding. We were roughly 30 mins delayed in being seated.

Both myself and my guest were very hungry and gave the staff a hard time about the preceding diners not being hurried on (on reflection we were probably a little heavy handed about this). However, the staff treated us with courtesy and politeness even when (on reflection) we probably didn't deserve it.

We were finally seated and the staff made every effort to make the evening memorable and enjoyable. The food, wine, and service were excellent.

I would thoroughly recommend for quality East London cooking, a competitively priced set menu with quality wine list in an enjoyable environment.

A very nice venue (bright...), with very good staff and a very helpful and knowledgeable sommelier. The menu in the bar area is limited and we can't book outside, and this did not make total sense to me, but it was a very pleasant evening. The wines are all natural which we are not fans of, but the sommelier made it interesting. Prices are on the high side.
