This was our first time back in about a year. We had a very nice dinner with friends in this bistro atmosphere restaurant - nothing fancy but very good food and service. The salmon and trout fish selections were excellent as were the mussels. The 12 ounce strip steak was tasty and done to order but just a little tough.... More

A delightful, cozy spot with really good food. It was cold outside but warm and cozy inside as we dined with relatives here recently. Thee mussels are extraordinary in their variety of preparations and very fresh and tasty. The frites are worth ordering all by themselves. Onion soup was classic and very good,. service by Greg was exceptional, especially when... More

Really nice restaurant, not fancy but charming. The staff was very friendly. Onion Soup was great. There is a patio for outdoor dining in warmer weather.

Great food! Loved oysters, mussels and the Caesar salad. Great place to sit outside with a fire. Inside is quite loud.

A French Restaurant that does not sell: Cheese platter & pates? Escargot? Cow au Vin? Beef Bourgogne? Quiche? The Onion Soup is poorly executed. Should have a lot of caramelized onions, a deeper richer thicker beef broth and very good high quality cheese and a lot of it is the Basic Onion Soup. Don't bother ordering it. They have nice...

Management response:

Hello Sir or Madam, I would like to apologize that our menu did not offer some of your favorite French items. I can only assume you joined us for lunch on your visit because our dinner menu does, in fact, feature Escargot, Moules-Frites, a daily cheese plate special, and last night, Beef Bourguignon. Our lunch menu is an abbreviated one,... More

A fun place, but a somewhat limited menu. Good if you like raw bars. The burgers and lamb sliders are very good. The beer list used to be be better, but it is still pretty good. Service is good. It can be a little loud. In the summer, you can sit outside.

Visited this restaurant for dinner during the Easton Waterfowl Festival. It was a bit loud and crowded which I attribute to the Festival. We had reservations and were seated immediately. The wait staff were courteous and efficient. My wife had a rack of lamb flame grilled to a perfect medium rare. We sampled the escargot (a first for me) which... More

We wanted a vibrant atmosphere restaurant with great food, and Brasserie Brightwell delivered. Awesome French onion soup, rack of lamb and lamb sliders, and the crispy brussel sprouts were a surprise and a delight. Waited at the outside patio bar for our table. Lots of patrons, bar super busy but it was all managed very well. Will definitely return when... More

We visited this Easton eatery based on these reviews as we were visiting the eastern shore and we had a great experience. The ambience & menu were both fine - the mussels were a hit and as good as we get at well known DC locales. We felt very comfortable and the prices were appropriate . Would visit again and... More

Visited Labor Day weekend, and the restaurant seemed very short on staff but the remaining wait staff more than compensated. Each staff member was pleasant and attentive. I ordered a rainbow trout with an unbelievable sauce served on a potato puree with escargot garnish. This dish was amazing. The head waiter came over to apologize for the wait but it... More
