    Love eating in Brown’s and I couldn’t fault the service. However I chose the lobster risotto which I have had previously in Brown’s Covent Garden. However the lobster that accompanies the risotto was so tough and overcooked it was almost inedible. A shame as this is one of my favourite restaurants

    Having made a booking via OpenTable and receiving a confirmation email, 24 hours later had a phone call from Browns to say they could offer me a table at 5pm or 9pm but not at 7pm which was the time of my booking. No apologies just that the way it is. OpenTable just blamed Browns and said I could always phone the restaurant to confirm a booking, not seeing the ridiculousness of that suggestion as it renders their platform to irrelevance. So I am giving an all round one star, but to be clear we did not eat there.

    Disappointing as when we arrived they did not have our reservation. We were a party of 8 and although the managed to accommodate us we were on two small round tables pushed together which was not very inspiring. The service was good but the food and ambience was nowhere near the experience we have had at Browns in Bath.

    A regular at Brown’s, this was my first visit to Brown’s at Brighton. Steaks were a little over cooked, and the two ‘managers’ absolutely useless; appearing to create more problems for their team than they resolved. However - we had a very enjoyable night there, which is to the thanks of the amazing service given by ‘Chrissie’; who could not have done more to make sure we were well looked after.

    I had the set menu and the starter and main were great but I was very disappointed in the Eton Mess dessert which was all cream and a bit of fruit and virtually no meringue so sadly that affected what was generally a good experience.

    Went in for lunch with my husband. Good quick service, lovely food. Impressed when waiter chased after an elderly lady to return her purse she had left on the table. It’s a lovely place to eat. Would recommend.

    Having been to Browns previously, and considering the time of year (Xmas) you get what you get with any busy restaurant - you need to be patient. Although a queue at the door, quickly acknowledged and presented to the table. Good food experience, well served, would definitely recommend. Be ready to accept that you are not the only people in town and be prepared to wait a little longer that would normally be expected for delivery of food and drink. This was a set meal choice and quality of food did not disappoint, hot food was hot when served not luke warm and very tasty. Drinks are what they from out of a bottle - good varied choice. Overall very satisfied.

    We had friends visiting from Iceland for a 50th birthday and we chose Browns for this special occasion, making our booking on Open Table. The booking was at 8pm for 6 people and we received the confirmation number. When we arrived they couldn’t find our booking... an embarrassing wait while they checked on the system if they could accommodate us. Eventually 2 small round tables were found at the very back of the restaurant, they pushed the tables together, which was not ideal. Our friends noticed a large shelf had been pulled off the wall behind us leaving a big mark and exposed screws & fixings. The broken shelf was left on a low wall by our table...We waited around 40 minutes for the first drinks to arrive. The food itself was good and the portion sizes good too. Our Waitress was pleasant but restaurant very busy so service very slow.

    The food was good and our waitress was great but this restaurant is understaffed - as soon as the place filled up little, the attentiveness vanished - our main course plates sat for 30mins after we were done and we served our wine ourselves - our waitress apologised but we made it clear that it wasn't her fault, and we tipped her accordingly. Hire more waiting staff on a Saturday night!

    Booked online before arriving in Brighton. When we got to the restaurant we were told we could have the table until 8.30 because there was a show nearby which was enough time for us but made us feel a little pressured to get done. Several diners on the tables near us had complaints about service and quality of food which dampened the mood even more. When our order arrived the food was OK nothing more. Service acceptable. Our bill with drinks was £60 which was probably £20 too much for what we had in my opinion. Wouldn't go back.

    Whilst the food was good if a little expensive the service was very poor for example we waited 30mins to place an order and then waited a further 35mins to be served . This was a pre theatre meal and we only had time for the main course no desert or coffee. Pity the poor service spoiled a good meal.
