Another trip to Brightwell Brasserie and another phenomenal experience! Staff was awesome and the steak sandwich was the best I have ever had... The best... Everytime I go here to eat or drink Brasserie Brightwell over delivers. If you are anywhere near Easton, this place is top shelf!

I've been eating here since Brightwell's opened and in all this time I finally got a meal that was absolutely epic. Tonight, they debuted a new menu item, venison stew. I don't think I have command of the English language to express how good this was. Besides being the coldest night in over a year, I can't think of a... More

Love this place, great food, imaginative menu and very friendly service. Fun place to meet folks after work for a drink too. Try the pork chop!

It was an early Sunday evening so was not busy yet and that gave the chefs in the open kitchen plenty of time to pay careful attention to our appetizers and entrees - each one and each part of each one special and delicious - and ask my wife - it's pretty rare I give rave reviews let alone come...

Great, lively bistro in the heart of Easton. Only a few blocks away from the historic downtown part of Easton, Brasserie Brightwell features superb grilled entrees from their woodburning grill, superb beer and bar selections, and fantastic shellfish from their raw bar. The lively atmosphere, great service, and great interior make for a really fun evening.

Their outside patio was really nice, the menu interesting and extensive however the food we tried was just ok. Service pleasant but it took nearly 40 minutes for appetizers to arrive. The meatballs were very dry. If we return I might try a burger as the table next to me had one that looked really good.

Great restaurant with friendly staff, wonderful energy and absolutely delicious food. Drinks were very reasonably priced at $ 8 each. Would go back again in a heartbeat.

This appears to be an old converted garage - still had Garage Door tracks....The food was better than average, but the service missed a little on special request. The table wobbled and they tried to fix - improved but not fixed. They really tried hard - would give them a 2nd chance.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Easton. It serves lunches and dinners. The food has a French influence and is delicious. I have never had anything I didn't like. They have fresh oysters from local oysteries. They have an excellent selection of unique beers and wines. The patio is a wonderful place to enjoy a meal or just... More
