Another amazing experience at Wright Brothers and the first time at Soho!
Saturday-dinner.

Service:
Attentive & friendly.

Food:
Amazing time manner, there is no waiting time. Food just flying out of the kitchen!

Drinks:
Whoever done my Boody Merry (gin), you did perfectly! It's one of the best bloody Merry I had in London!

Overall great place to enjoy the atmosphere and food.

The ambiance was great, the music a bit loud. The seafood platter was great the main course was good but a little on the small side. Overall good experience but came away thinking I could still eat something else.

Having been to the Borough Market restaurant on numerous occasions for lunch and dinner, I believed that our meal at the Soho restaurant would be equally as amazing. Overall, this was a really disappointing experience.

There were 4 of us, we were looking forward to the Seafood platter which we have had before at Borough. Unfortunately, our server didn't seem to have the correct information about the differences between the full house and deluxe platter, but kept trying to push us towards the £90 deluxe platter even though we had already stated we wanted to share the full house platter as a starter and order a number of dishes for our mains. We were informed that the full house platter contained langoustines but when it arrived it was actually crab (thankfully no allergies on our table).

For mains, we decided to share the following dishes: Galician octopus, squid ink taramasalata, plaice with brown shrimp from the daily specials menu and fries on the side. The taramasalata was truly horrible, the flatbread and lemon puree were not a good combination and were overly sweet (we didn't finish it), the plaice was overcooked, watery and lacking in flavour. The octopus was delicious (houmous was a bit of a weird pair to it) but the portion was minuscule and the fries were on the undercooked side for most of our tastes. We ended up ordering 2 portions of king prawns and a selection of oysters because we were still hungry and could have eaten more even after that!

Best bit about the meal was the wine.
The server was nice, just a real shame that she didn't have the correct information about menu and wasn't particularly attentive when it came to filling glasses with water etc..

Will not be returning to Soho any time soon

My friend and I were there for the £1 oyster happy hour. Great deal for what it is! You only get to pick the one style of oyster - Jersey. Place is so beautifully set out. However service was lacking a bit and we were seated right next to the door, on a windy day, where people were coming and going, so it was unpleasantly cold when the door was left open and we had to get up ourselves numerous times to close it. Other than that, recommend to others to go back and try their food, maybe on a special occasion.

Good service, had a couple of cold mussels in my dish, think the food is overpriced and value for money not very good at all as a result of this. Can get better seafood elsewhere for a lot less.

Such a brilliant place and the food and wine were absolutely delicious.
We did find attacking the crab a bit daunting at first but the taste did make our efforts worthwhile.
I would certainly recommend Wright’s Brothers - I xan’t Wait to return.

Since I am a foodie, I didn't particularly enjoy the food that was served. We got the seafood platter and the shellfish had a lot of grit in them which wasn't pleasant. We decided to get some specials for our mains and they were overall a let down. Some dishes were extremely salty and ruined the whole dish for me and some of the seafood didn't seem as fresh as they could be. I wouldn't say the food was worth what we paid for.
However, the good thing was the service. Even though we went on Mother's Day and the restaurant had a good few tables full, the staff were happy to explain how the menu worked and were very professional.

An impressive menu. The sharing plates were a highlight. We had the tuna, scallops, prawns, sashimi and cuttlefish. I’d highly recommend the pork belly main and Korean whelks (nibbles). The oysters weren’t bad either! Service was proactive. There was a pleasant ambiance. A great start to our night.

The seafood platter was absolutely delicious and nicely varied, the side dishes we ordered - the sashimi selection and Korean whelks were outstanding. As were the cocktails. However the desserts were decided average. The blood orange pavlova’s meringues were collapsed puddles of gloop and the white chocolate panna cotta was fairly bland. We would definitely go again, but stick to seafood and skip dessert. Oh and £4.50 for a very small portion of chips was pretty outrageous!

The Brixham 2-course lunch menu was an utter disappointment. I normally have high praise for Wright Bros, but this lunch menu was thin on substance. The starter was a very tiny fritto misto that was composed mostly of scraps and trimmings, and the main of whole grilled Plaice, sounded nice, but was very little flesh for the amount of bones, and came with nothing else on the plate. The waitress we had was grumpy, grudgingly gave me the tiniest taste of the house red, and proceeded to provide apathetic service throughout the meal. Quite sad to have had such a poor experience at WB after coming back over so many years.

Ordered tuna tartare; very salty. Waitress stated that she would offer to have the chefs make it again, but it would probably taste the same as that is how they prepare it.

Thought that was a bit odd, but then thought that is the way they purchased it, pre-made and then plated the tuna. That would make more sense as the kitchen had no control over the quality and taste of the food, only presentation.

Had an enjoyable post-work dinner here. Nice ambience despite being on busy Kingly Street. Very friendly and efficient service. The Morecambe Bay oysters were delicious, as was the cuttlefish and padron peppers. My wife had gurnard which she rated as nice but could have had a little more sauce. I had the ray wing, a sizeable portion. Unfortunately it had a very strong ammonia taint. I haven’t experienced this before with ray, however I have heard several theories. Too fresh. Too old. Incorrect processing. It’s normal for ray. Anyway I didn’t want to cause a scene and it was quite tasty once actually in the mouth so I didn’t say anything at the time. As is usual in fish restaurants I’d recommend ordering some sides of a green variety. Prices were acceptable for a seafood place.

I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

There was something lacking here. Totally different experience to Wright Brothers in Borough Market. Little or no atmosphere. The starters were plonked on the table in the wrong place. We weren't asked whose was whose. The Korean whelks was a tiny portion, I thought for a moment is was a complimentary amuse bouche, it was that small. The deep fried oysters were disappointing. Lots of batter and jam. Not much oyster (maybe not the best choice in retrospect). The mussels were nice enough, but not that special. There was no effort to present any of the dishes attractively. No offer of bread to mop up mussel juice.

I took my girlfriend here for Valentine’s Day. The seafood is fresh and excellent quality, we had the full house platter with scallop share starter and white wine £120. The soho branch seems to mainly serve shellfish rather than a good fish selection, but this isn’t such an issue as the quality is definitely up there. In particular the scallops are fantastic. The house white wine is also good quality and perfect match for the menu. If you love shellfish this is one of the best restaurants in central London.

We had an excellent meal at Wright Brothers Soho, 13 Feb. The oyster selection starter was outstanding. My wife's pollock was also very good though my main of mussels could have been a little warmer;but the portion was gereous. Puddings were very good. A special mention for the ser ice which was both cheerful and attentive.

The service was a disaster... we asked for sparkling water and we got natural... we asked for bread and we never received it. When I have asked the waitress about the bread instead of apologies, she told me “didn’t the kitchen bring it to you?” Who is the kitchen??
Then I have asked to speak with the manager at the table and none showed up. Very disappointing.

Service was slow, we waited 20 minutes to order the drinks. When the wine we ordered came it was warm and we had to ask to change the bottle. We then ordered a big seafood plate to share as a starter and the clams were very sandy and the shrimps chewy. Definitely not recommend. The only good side of the experience is the restaurant itself, which is nice and well designed.

I was extremely impressed (as was my dining companion) with the restaurant in terms of its food, ambience and service levels which were all very high. A call out to Aurore who was exceptional. The Japanese influence in the cooking was just delightful and the sharing plates were divine. Well done Wright Brothers; I will definitely recommend you and also re-visit. Sue Barker
