I'd go here again in a heartbeat. The wine list was varied and so unique, the food was light and delicious. The staff were really accommodating and friendly, despite it being a busy night when circumstances out of our control made us 45 minutes late. The atmosphere was really vibrant, it felt very European with tables spilling outside onto the summer street.
I tasted vegetables I'd never heard of before, drank wine I'd never heard of before, all advised by funny, efficient staff.

So good! Staff all incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about the dishes. Superb courgette dish to start and a desert featuring absolutely insane frozen shortbread (!!!!!!). Adapted the menu without fuss for my vegan companion. Brilliant.

I had been wanting to go to Bright for ages. The food was very hit and miss, some very good and others fell flat. We had an incident where another table was being very loud and we politely asked if they could lower the volume. This turned into a drama but I thought the staff handled it really well and we were very happy with that. Unfortunately the other table ruined the evening but I wouldn’t discourage people going to Bright, it defs has to be tested.

Totally blown away by the entire meal: amazing wine list; each dish was beautifully presented and tasted delicious (some flavour combinations I’d never seen before and was pleasantly surprised by) and the service was great too! Loved the aesthetic of the interior, nice artwork on the walls. Don’t usually write reviews but this place is something special!

A really lovely small local restaurant. Small sharing plates that feel fresh and interesting and unusual. An eclectic wine list that isnt quite for me. I am probably more of a classic wine drinker and their list is natural so that would be my only complaint.

This was my second time there. The variety in the menu, taste of plates and overall service was average. My first time was definitely better. I commuted from quite far so I didn't feel it's worth coming back again.

Strawberry dessert was star of the show. I’m vegetarian so we had all V sharing plates which were tasty but all quite samey (variations on a soft cheese theme) - felt like there needed to be some new inspiration by dish no4.. anyway it was good quality and a lovely place to be so will return!

Nice food, good service and great ambiance.

There was a very awkward moment when the bill came with a card that expressed that tip was included in the cost of the menu items (as they had looked pretty pricey). So I had assumed that tip was therefor not needed to be added. However the waitress claimed that was only to pay them the living wage. Cue a very awkward moment in front of a prospective client of mine where I had to give more tip in cash.

I'm not really sure what the reality is of the pricing but I felt I was emotionally blackmailed to pay more tip.

Left a strange taste in my mouth and would affect my decision to host other client meals there.

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
