We didn't know in advance that there was a prix fixe Easter brunch menu (made the reservation based on Brighton's brunch menu). When we arrived, we discovered we'd be paying $65/adult and $30/child for our buffet. We have a 3-year-old that eats one bagel, so we NEVER would have come had we known the prices were so high (more than triple that of their standard brunch buffet). The food was fair - cold eggs, hard french toast, stale bagels. The service was fair - dirty plates accumulated and drinks were not refilled without asking, even though these were the only things they had to do. Then we received the bill and were furious to see that a 20% gratuity had been automatically added, without any notice, even though we were only a party of 3! Would never eat there again.

The food was okay, but we had to ask for service way too much. The people working in Brighton's on the morning we ate there for breakfast have to go.

Brightons is located in a wonderful Intercontinental Hotel, the Harbor Court Hotel. The courtyard and lobby are spectacular. This restaurant is adjacent to their outstanding bar/lounge, the Explorer's Lounge. We went to the lounge for drinks afterward and found you could dine there as well. We wish we had! At Brightons, the views of the inner harbor in Baltimore are excellent. The wait staff was friendly enough.The food was even tasty. Unfortunately, Brighton's kitchen is half a block away in the other end of the hotel and nothing arrived hot. Additionally, the second bottle of wine we ordered was out of stock. It was just a standard California Vinyard. Very disappointing overall. We were there with good friends so we still enjoyed ourselves. But the dinning experience didn't contribute.

While there was a slight delay in getting waited on initially, all else was great including refills on the coffee in a timely manner. The food was marvelous and plentiful

When offered, the buffet is the way to go! Call front desk to ask if buffet will be offered; it depends on hotel occupancy. Arrive before 9a to get better buffet pricing.
