Would definitely recommend!
The food was delicious, you can tell is great quality. As well they have amazing drink options, we loved the basque cider and the wine. And the service is great, they were super busy but they put a great effort in making you feel like at home.

This is a great modernist restaurant dedicated to quality ingredients & brilliant flavour combinations. Staff are very invested in the experience and are very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list which is very well curated.

The prices reflect the quality

Really wonderful food with a great balance of flavours, lovely wine list and carefully sourced from good butchers, fishers and growers.
Staff were really helpful and lovely.
Went on a Wednesday at 7ish and it was quiet when we arrived and filled up around 8 so I put noise level "moderate", certainly could be a quiet spot for an earlier meal but it wasn't overwhelming even when full. There's no music.
The portion sizes are generous so it came out as good value for this style of restaurant in this area at £60 per person we had 2 glasses of wine and came away full and happy

One of the best restaurants in London, especially at the price. Bright is laid back and unpretentious, everything you want and nothing you don't. Creative small plates, a tremendous wine selection, and warm staff, I wish more places would take a page out of Bright's playbook

Nice food & wine but with a pretty weird service - a lot of upselling into expensive extras. We've had to watch what our waiter was recommending both food and wine, to make sure this visit won't leave us bankrupt. A bit fast-tracked experience, they want you to get done as soon as possible.

Friendly, smiley people working there. Amazing flavours.
A tiny bit of delay for the main dish but if you are drinking in the meantime you probably wouldn’t notice.
I got a glass of wine that was very good for my taste but pricey for just a glass.
I will go again.

I was really looking forward to trying this restaurant after the raving reviews, but unfortunately it was disappointing. All the dishes were lacking seasoning, they were overpriced and unimaginative. The staff were polite but the music was a bit too loud, although the ambiance was nice. Unfortunately the food was not up to par with restaurants of similar standing.

We sat at the bar and were served by Phil who was immense. So attentive and knowledgeable about the food and drink. We gave him our brief for wine and he hit it seamlessly! The aubergine and mozzarella dish was stand out for us- mopped up with some yummy bread and butter. Ambience was lush- had a great time, would defo recommend !

We ate a couple of things that were excellent (the butter corn, the casarecce) but a lot of the rest was just good. And being good is perfectly ok but not when you charge the prices Bright does. For that you expect to be blown away. £13 for something advertised as "seasonal vegetables, chervil & pecorino" was just crudites. £36 for dover sole that didn't have much meat on it. Service is exceptional, no faults there. Wine was excellent and overall food was nice it just felt like we were being ripped off a bit. Sorry to say it as I'd looked forward to this for quite some time.

Best meal out I have had in a long time. All around great service. They were so accommodating even though we were very late for our booking. Sorry about that.
All of our questions regarding wine and food were answered very well and with a lovely smile.
Food was out of this world Pork Ragu is a must for any meat eater going there. So light and lovely. Along with all the rest. And those desserts really blew us away. The combination of flavours and textures was incredible. I could go on for hours. All in all 6* from me and my table. Thanks team Bright. I'll be back again soon for sure.

I'd go here again in a heartbeat. The wine list was varied and so unique, the food was light and delicious. The staff were really accommodating and friendly, despite it being a busy night when circumstances out of our control made us 45 minutes late. The atmosphere was really vibrant, it felt very European with tables spilling outside onto the summer street.
I tasted vegetables I'd never heard of before, drank wine I'd never heard of before, all advised by funny, efficient staff.

So good! Staff all incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about the dishes. Superb courgette dish to start and a desert featuring absolutely insane frozen shortbread (!!!!!!). Adapted the menu without fuss for my vegan companion. Brilliant.
