Staff was friendly. The lady looking after us this evening was attentive, but spoke a little fast so couldn’t understand her. Seated at the back of the restaurant which was where the bar was. Was a bit noisy as bartender kept knocking things about; wasn’t even the customers being noisy as there was only one table drinking.
Atmosphere was nice and food arrived promptly. Quality of seafood was good. We ordered the full house seafood platter which had a great variety of seafood. Pork collar was soft and was nice with the potatoes, while the mussels were also really tasty in white wine sauce.
Would recommend this restaurant based on quality of food and service.
Not bad for the price!

Great seafood in a high energy location. The management and staff were very friendly and professional.
The food was fresh and we had a lot of choices. The mussels are the best. Every table had an order.

In the middle of Soho - absolutely right place to feel Soho. I went there with my clients and my bosses that were not used to London but wanted to feel West End; and they all were satisfied with foods - well, of course it's not a fine-dining Michelin gourmet, but it was still good - oysters were fresh. And the spaces got divided so that noise was not as loud as I had expected. No difficulties to have conversation with people a bit away. And friendly employees. I guess this place would go better with a group or casual nights - rather than a romantic night.

The oysters were great. Yet, couldn't say same for the rest of the platter we had. Sea snails tasted very plain, clams were full of sand ... just not as good as we had few times before in London Bridge branch. Don't think will have the same platter again. But definitely going to come back again for oysters and other food.

So we reserved a table but instead had to share one..we sat outside in the courtyard which was very animated. Quite a warm evening Our waitress was lovely , very friendly and accomodating. however i ordered a beer, which arrived with a warm glass and our prosecco and Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc likewise. The glasses should have maybe been not chilled, but at least given a bit of a mist in a fridge. One of my Oysters turned white and foamy as soon as my fork touched it - a sign that it was spawning and had absolutely no place on a restaurant table! The waitress replaced it without any fuss. However the 2 sharing plates we ordered (croquettes and squid rings) were completely unimaginative in presentation and taste. Sadly disappointing date night for me and my wife.

This was a family dinner and birthday. We had an early seating (6pm) so the restaurant wasn't too busy and was quiet. We loved the ambiance of the restaurant, and there were some lovely specials on the menu. The seafood was excellent. The small plates were perfect to start, and there was a lot of variety in the menu. The mains were delicious as well. Service was excellent. We had very attentive servers and our food came quickly. The desserts were very good as well. Overall we were very happy with our experience.

Went in for happy hour oysters with a friend and had a great time. I’d previously been to the Spitalfields branch which was stunning so had high hopes for this one and was not disappointed. The seafood was amazing. The service and staff were lovely. And the wine was delicious. We sat outside in the courtyard which had great atmosphere. Will return.

Our fries where forgotten and arrived as we were finishing the oysters. We decided to order some more oysters and another round of fries and the extract same thing happens again. No apology really. A bit lacking in service this time. Oysters were great as always though.

We love Wright Brothers but the food was not good
I had cockles, mussels and whelks
They all arrived on ice still frozen with no vinegar when we asked they gave us balsamic.
My husband had fish which he felt was not fresh!
It was a huge disappointment as I have to have treatment every day including Easter Monday and this was meant to be a treat.

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.

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.
