Great wines and lovely atmosphere. Service was quite slow and food wasn’t mind blowing in my opinion, but tasty. Would like to have a second try.

Service was inexistant. We wait 30’ in between each plate . Food was quite basic , not impressive at all , fish was soggy. It seems the restaurant is very over rated and we were extremely disappointed by the meal quality and service .
Many more go quality restaurants in Hackney than this one .

Bright always surprises us with the food. The services was excellent, the drinks very good, and the dishes we order were delicious . The mussels with fennel and the iberico presa pork were outstanding, and the asparagus and lasagna verde really were perfect. One of our favourite restaurants in Hackney

Service on point and great choice of wine. We had wine by the glass and I wish there would be more options (wine menu is 6 pages long but only 2 to 3 per type of wine are available by the glass).
The food was nice (except the monkfish which was slightly dull).
Would happily come back for a plate and a few glasses of wine.

We were quite disappointed- definitely not a £60 a head meal. A couple of dishes were delicious but the rest were average, the main arrived before the starters, service was poor and our white wine was gradually heating up under the incredibly hot heaters just above our heads

Overall it was a good experience until I received over cooked monkfish and when I politely pointed it out was told that ‘the chef was pleased with the way the fish was cooked’ and wouldn’t replace it, put a real damper on the whole experience in all honesty. I’d also say it’s overpriced.

Staff at Bright were so helpful and accommodating. The experience was lovely and the food was heavenly!!! Wine was delicious by the glass however corkage is £20 if you buy a bottle from inside. We will be back again for special occasions as it is quite an expensive meal out.
