Good Food, Interesting Decor, and Great Reuse of Building

Great experience with a dinner party of 8. Service was outstanding (she never wrote anything down at any time) and atmosphere in the old service station/garage (?) was somewhat eclectic but fitting.

Fun French food, steaks, and burgers with great specials. Moules frites (mussels/fries) are great option. Where else can you get escargot? Small plates an option as are small (and regular size) desserts - chocolate mousse, creme caramel. Open late-ish, often with music. When we first went, the service was not good (at hostess stand) but now its more than fine... More

Just had dinner with friends here. Everyone loved their dinner. We ordered three courses...and every dish was over the top. The best Brussels sprouts I have ever eaten. Flatiron steak, fish, and seafood...all great meals around the table. Good wine selections. Indoor decor fun and everyone seemed to be having fun and enjoying the food, service, and atmosphere. Outdoor dining... More

Brasserie has an interesting menu but their classics include smoked clams, fresh ground burger and oyster bar. Great place to meet friends and have cocktails and extensive beer list.

This restaurant was a good choice for our last night in Easton. The steak I had was done just the way I asked and my wife's fish was very good. Service was good and next week when they open up the outside part of the restaurant I think it will be even a more fun place to dine.

A friend told me to order a hamburger for lunch. It was really good. We had a group of eight and those who ordered hamburgers were very pleased. The service was very good.

This place is a real gem in Easton. Kind-of hidden, but worth the find. We enjoyed a lobster salad, French onion soup and a beef sandwich. The soup has got to be the best French onion soup I've ever tasted! Hunks of beef brisket and real Gruyer cheese....amazing. Nice bar. Just plain a really great place. Small inside,but looks like...

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
