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

While looking for a "different" place to eat dinner, solo, while visiting Easton, I passed by Brasserie Brightwell. I was actually looking for another restaurant in downtown Easton at the time, but the crowd outside Brasserie and the outdoor lights caught my attention. I was surprised to find groups of people enjoying a pleasant evening by eating/drinking outdoors, while a... More

My wife, adult daughter, and I ate lunch here. It was hot outside but we chose to eat outside with the shaded and covered seating area. This is next to Washington Street but we did not find the traffic noise very distracting which was great. The food and service was very good. We would eat here again.

We love Easton for day trips. Easton is a premium destination. Casually chic, peopled with bon vivants--that is Easton. We have lunched, brunched and supped at every spot in the top 10 restaurants listed on TripAdvisor-except Brasserie Brightwell. Yesterday, the Saturday of Labor Day weekend, found us in a window lit corner table.of this popular eatery. Brasserie Brightwell fits a... More

There are many dishes that Brasserie Brightwell do well but my absolute favorite it their French onion soup. It comes to the table with a warning from the wait staff - " be careful, it is hot". Yes it is! And delicious. Topped with a liberal portion of melted cheese on a crouton of bread the soup is filled with... More

My husband and I wanted seafood. The Brasserie Brightwell was close by and recommended. It was simple, good, and delightful. We enjoyed everything we ate and the service was friendly and not overbearing.

This place is always a stop on my eastern shore vacation. It never disappoints. Great stop after a bike trip. The staff is always friendly and the drinks and food great.
