Lunch was good

This was my first time here and it was a pleasant experience. We arrived at 11 am for an early lunch. I had a salad with salmon on it and it was fresh and delicious. Service was attentive. Can't speak about the drinks because I had a cup of coffee. Coffee, salad and tip came to $23. I'd go... read more

Food was well prepared and nicely presented but service was substandard. I believe a server should approach a table and wait at least a tick of the clock to be acknowledged but here I felt almost ambushed each time she approached, one time even interrupting the person speaking to ask a question. We were seated at an outside corner however... More

I don't frequent it as often as I used to. The menu doesn't seem to be as varied. I do like the atmosphere and service. Will try it again some other time.

Wine is over-priced. Food is excellent: well-prepared and good-sized portions. The restaurant is larger than you would think so depending upon where you are seated, the atmosphere can be intimate or crowded.

Excellent food & wine, wide choices on menu, nice for any occasion. Had Lake Erie Perch and it was fantastic. They are very creative here, and it works.

ITs been a while since eating at Brighton Bar and Grill. Myself and a business associate had lunches there on a Friday. We got there right at noon and had out choice of tables, but the place filled up very quickly. I ended up with a Cubano sandwich which was very good; the accompanying chips were excellent! There was a... More

Had only stopped in previously for lunch so we decided on dinner with friends. Great service, super busy on a Friday night, I would recommend reservations. We skipped apps, and went right to the main courses. My girlfriend ordered the Flatbread, which came with mascarpone, caramelized onions, and prosciutto. She said it was delicious. I ordered the Pueblo Pasta which... More
