Maybe it's because of all the hype that I've heard about this restaurant but I wasn't as impressed as I expected. The food is ok, but I wasn't overly thrilled. I thought the meal was pricey for what you get. When we were there, the place was very loud even though it only seemed about 1/2 full. So loud that... More

I had the beet and goat cheese salad for $7. It was very skimpy. Three tiny rings of red onion, three slices of green apple, a handful of salad greens and two 1/4 teaspoons of goat cheese along with canned pickled beets. I also had the fries. It was good, but I made it at home and made enough for... More

Many people love this place. A little pricey but worth it. Really good food. Seating is a little cramped in some areas and service is not fabulous but good. Still...the food is worth it. Some nights there are musicians adding a little something extra. Patio seating is nice as well.

This isn't your throw 'em back tavern. Rather, this is yuppie bar food with alcohol optional. Perfectly acceptable food, not great, to be sure, nor cheap, nor remarkable, but a wee bit above average with service to match.

Very good selection to choose from, prices are reasonable to the portions received, the service was awesome and the food was very good. We each ordered something different and shared. Loved all the food!

Brighton Bar and Grill has outstanding food and services! There's staff goes above and beyond to make your meal special. I ordered the Black&Blue salad and my wife ordered the Pear Chicken Salad for lunch, both were excellent.

This is a brilliant restaurant for a business lunch, special dinner or occasion. I have seen many different dishes and tastes the starter calamari that was excellent! But my absolute favourite is a salad they had as a special on Wednesdays, the Buffalo chicken Salad this is to die for. They don't have it on the menu though as I... More
