Surprise 40th birthday

Surprise party downstairs in cigar lounge. Was a nice setting, food and service was great. As the night went on and more people came down stairs to smoke cigars, it was no longer a great place to be. Eyes were burning, not a smoker. We moved upstairs for a short bit, but left soon after. Very cool... read more

Eyes were burning, not a smoker. We moved upstairs for a short bit, but left soon after. Very cool atmosphere over all.

We only came for drinks. The indoor space had lounge areas that looked nice for a group. We drank outside which was only ok. Nothing special out there and tacky plastic flowers in the planters. The majority of the drinks on the menu were VERY sweet. I'm a female and I even thought they were, "chick drinks." Just reading them... More

This is a great place in downtown Brighton for food, drinks and atmosphere. We had this week's special ... pan roasted sturgeon in toasted walnut butter over herbed mashed potatoes and it was excellent! We sat outside and the service was quick and friendly. This is also a great place to have a drink and people watch.

This place has a great selection of drinks, but the food was just OK. Particularly for the price. Nice place to go after dinner.

My wife and I stopped here for dinner and drinks again after a spontaneous trip to the art fair. Drinks A+. Meal A. Service (Sarah) A+. We highly recommend the outdoor seating for an additional relaxing touch.

First off this place is just beautiful, love the bar. The martini selection is one of a kind, over a 100. The food is tapas style, so it won't fill me up, but that means I can drink more. Great seasonal beers always available. Nick and Lindsey, the owners, are very nice and usually around. The basement is a real... More

We went here on a whim and were pleasantly surprised. Great selection of Tapas and everything we ordered came out great. Highly reccomend the beef tips! Waitress was very friendly and manager came over to our table to check on everything. They have outdoor seating as well which is nice if the weather cooperates. Very clean and nice atmosphere. I...

Ordered blue cheese nachos and had to ask, where is the blue cheese? They brought blue cheese after I complained, but who orders blue cheese nachos who does not like blue cheese? Note there is chicken on the blue cheese nachos. I ask why? Salmon was only ok. Rice, roasted red peppers, cauliflower, broccoli, only ok. Wine was ok. Ok... More

I can't believe some of the negative reviews I've read on here about Downtown Main. Clearly some don't know how to write a review based on a legitimately negative experience (providing helpful, honest input for improvement) and just writing rubbish that's not even pertinent to the point of writing a review in the first place. I've met friends here for... More
