Order the crispy fried oyster brunch and they weren't on the plate. The whole thing was rather disappointing and not a lot of food was on the plate.

Overall a good experience but lack of menu choice was terrible. All specials had run out by 8pm and so had 2 of the main menu. Given how small the menu is anyhow it was very disappointing

Food was tasty but portions were small or maybe we ordered too little. Also, service was a little slow although it was a busy night. I came with children. Would go again without the kids.

Sat outside for lunch, with a view of the river - very enjoyable. Food was very good, particularly the octopus poke bowl, and the service very friendly and efficient. Great addition to the Battersea Power Station eateries. Would definitely go back.

We went for lunch specifically for the August £20 lobster special and weren’t disappointed. Generous sized lobster, nice grilled flavor, with excellent fries and small salad. All in all, excellent value. However, the service was very unprofessional even though there were very few customers. Hope this improves as it’s a lovely location overlooking the river next to the Battersea Power Station.

Lovely lunch. Classy place. Jersey Rock Oysters and razor clams were delicious. Knowledgeable Irish (?) waitress who advised well on which oysters to go for from their oyster menu. Apparently the Jerseys are a good choice if you’re a little squeamish about oysters or if you’re an oyster newbie. Octopus was also delicious and tender but perhaps a bit of a small portion? Will definitely go again.

All very good - food and service excellent. We were there for sunday lunch and the numbers meant that the front dining room was pretty much full - the back wasn't open. The windows weren't open and the noise was off putting. We had to shout to be heard and it was not v relaxing as a result. Otherwise love it.

On of the best restaurants I have eaten in for some time. The food was truly excellent, and good service and ambience to go with it.

This is not the cheapest restaurant in town, but I gladly paid the price for the wonderful fresh seafood and fish I was offered.

Thank You to the staff at Wight Bros!

The Food is excellent and although I've seen complaints about a limited menu, the food is always top-notch. Love Andre and Carl behind the Bar, Great cocktails and service. Credit to Jean Michel and his excellent team. See you soon.

This was my third time at Wright Bros Battersea and I have to say it has gone downhill. The menu is now very limited at lunchtime and many of the plates were not available even though we were the first sitting. The service was slow in spite of there being many staff and very few customers and the half lobster (with a bowl of chips and a few leaves) was so small that it was more like a crevette (£27). We came away feeling that we had paid an awful lot of money for very little. It’s a great pity because the location is fabulous And the restaurant was very good on previous visits. Maybe this was just an off day. I really hope so.

There's no doubting this is a fun place to eat. We've been here twice. The ambience next to the river and under the amazing domineering Battersea Power Station definitely makes for a memorable experience. However, on both occasions the food has been distinctly average. It's a shame because the wait staff are great and the menu promises so much. Just too many weird flavour combinations and suggests that the chefs are trying way too hard and missing the mark.

We enjoyed a delicious date night at Wright Brothers. Highlights were the oyster platter, Galician octopus and the tuna tartare. We also shared a bottle of spanish white wine, which we were able to taste first. Service was very good, as was the restaurant ambience. Overall we had a fantastic meal and hope to return soon!

Poor experience. 40mins for food to arrive - wine arrived after food. One meal was cold and waiter questioned whether this was true. The waiter was terrible, slow and unattentive - the couple next to us was only served one meal and he tried to say they had only ordered one! I had the lobster which looked like a crayfish, extremely small for the price.
A new waiter took over and heavily discounted the food, on this basis we will give it another try in a few months in hope they have fixed the waiting staff issues.
Must try much harder for their prices - other of their establishments are much better!

Also the alcohol free wine is extremely nice, but please don't over-sweeten the alcohol free cocktail offerings, they are not always for children

Promising start with a warm welcome and good service but once the restaurant filled up service suffered, becam e very noisy, plates weren't cleared and no desserts or coffee offered so we got the bill and left. Cocktails disappointing and the vegetarian beetroot and feta main course was unbalanced, too much cold beetroot in proportion to cheese.
Fish dishes good but not enough to entice us back.
