Brigade Bar & Bistro
This is my second visit andThis is my second visit and the menu and quality of food is amazing17/05/2013 00:00:00Brigade after the ShardBrigade provided a warm and romantic atmosphere in a chic modern restaurant which was a great way to follow on with dinner after having viewed London from the Shard. The Pinot Grigio wine was the best I've ever tasted and the food was wholesome, flavoursome and creatively presented. A chic and friendly restaurant with an exclusive menu that won't disappoint. I thoroughly recommend dinner here.24/04/2013 00:00:00Went here after a trip toWent here after a trip to the shard on our anniversary. We had a nice table near the window and the waitress was very helpful and attentive throughout the evening. We ordered some starters and this took some time so if hungry order some bread or olives or something.. Although when they arrived they were delicious! We had some similarly well presented and tasty mains too but were too stuffed for dessert!24/04/2013 00:00:00An excellent restaurantExcellent seasonal fayre. Well prepared and presented. Good range of wines by the glass. Staff wee able to advise on the menu and thank you to the waitress who made my wife feel very special.:)23/04/2013 00:00:00A very enjoyable eveningWe went to Brigade Bar and Bistro for my boyfriend's birthday. We arrived for a late dinner on a Monday night so it was pretty quiet. However, we were given a warm reception and the staff couldn't do enough for you. The meal options were rather limited but the food was excellent. My boyfriend had the rib eye and said it's the best steak he's had in this country. Although we were very full we decided we would share a dessert and had the passionfruit meringue pie - simply wow! The only negative was I thought my glass of wine was a little pricey but it could be argued that's what you pay for quality.
I would recommend others go here and if we're in the area we would definitely go back.22/04/2013 00:00:00Consistently great food and serviceThis was my third visit to the Brigade. The quality of the food and the service never fail to impress. It's a great place for a catch up with friends or for a special occasion. I highly recommend it and I will definitely be returning there myself.18/04/2013 00:00:00WONDERFUL EVENINGThe food was amazing, the service was excellent with nothing too much trouble, my daughter-in-law was looking forward to something she had seen online menu that wasnt on the new menu, without hesitation they offered to cook this for her.
Will definitely returning when in London again. My son is also on a special diet and they were very helpful in explaining what was in the specific dishes.13/04/2013 00:00:00Food, glorious food!Brigade never fails to impress! The innovative flavour combinations are expertly chosen and executed. I will keep coming back :-)22/03/2013 00:00:00Really good food and wineWould recommend Brigade. Good food and wine.
I didn't like the dessert but i guess it is just because I didn't pick the right one!05/03/2013 00:00:00Well worth a visit, somethingWell worth a visit, something different in the city26/02/2013 00:00:00An up and coming starBrigade London bridge. I've been to this restaurant a number of times now. The food continues to get even better. I love the ethics of the place too and expect it to be recognised by the foodies of London before much longer. It's also nice to be recognised by the staff and greeted like an old friend to the point of remembering the wine I ordered last visit. Highly recommended and rapidly becoming a favourite of mine.20/11/2012 00:00:00brigadethis was our first visit to Brigade and we found the staff to be very good and a great food choice-with some unusual flavours(tarragon custard with the fruit crumble!)-it was great avlaue with the 25% off food deal -and nice wine -I suspect we will go again.
a bonus was that you could have a conversatiojn as the music was only playing in the bar area.01/10/2012 00:00:00Superb food and great serviceI've been to Brigade many times now and have dined alone at the bar and eaten in small and large groups. Every time, the food has been superb and the service very friendly. After a couple of visits, the wine waiter remembered what I liked which is a great touch. I will go back again and again and it would not surprise me if they get a star or similar soon as I've eaten much less inspiring food at stared establishments than what Brigage has to offer.13/09/2012 00:00:00My friend and I were madeMy friend and I were made welcome at the Brigade Bar & Bistro near London Bridge when we arrived for lunch on a weekday. Our waiter was very helpful and friendly and explained the menu to us. We were interested to know that they have a menu prepared by participants in an apprentice scheme for disadvantaged people, although we didn't order from it as we wanted to try something else. The crayfish salad was a generous size for a starter and my salmon was cooked to perfection with a crispy skin. Desserts were heavenly & they were flexible when we wanted a different ice cream to that on the menu. With the 25% off from Top Table it was fantastic value. Will be back.26/07/2012 00:00:00Brilliant value 50% off foodBrilliant value 50% off food with TT on Saturday at Brigade. I like the different areas in this restaurant/bar. You can just come here for a drink in the comfortable bar area, sit at at high tables with a few friends for snacks, or dine perched on high stools overlooking the kitchen watching the chefs at work, as well as a more conventional restaurant area. Service good, friendly staff. Good selection of seasonal food on the menu. Two visits in one week so must be good.26/05/2012 00:00:00A great new find in the LondonA great new find in the London Bridge area. V friendly helpful staff. Lovely selection of breads and warm olives to nibble on whilst we ordered. Good selection of fish dishes. Wines also reasonable in price and variety. The private dining room looks fab for 10-12 people so would like to try that out. The TT 25%off food made this v good value.23/05/2012 00:00:00An enjoyable meal overallAn enjoyable meal overall at the Brigade Bar and Bistro. Service a bit aggressive initially (asked by 4 different waiters if we were ready to order and the nibbles suggested, "while we wait for our starters to be prepared" were superfluous, as the starters came 30 seconds later.) Wine recommendations helpful as was the option of nearly every wine being available by the glass, at an appropriately proportionate price: we had 4 different wines, to match our dishes, all very acceptable.03/05/2012 16:00:00The food we nice if a littleThe food we nice if a little rich. Service was good. very well presented restaurant.02/05/2012 16:00:00Brigade - London Bridge. Brigade - London Bridge. Really enjoyed the new menu - especially the oysters and pork shoulder. The 25% off deal is good too. The somelier is also excellent and the open kitchen is a real feature.02/05/2012 00:00:00The menu was quite orignal-The menu was quite orignal- there was a cheese and beetroot souffle and artichoke pannacotta. I had the latter-very good. Portion sizes are more generous than they look. Quite filling. The food is very good. The service was excellent -we were off to the theatre so told the waitress we wanted 2 courses in one hour. Mission accomplished. The staff are very nice. We sad around the corner so we didn't get noise from the bar. Unisex loos are a bad idea. That was the only let down.27/04/2012 00:00:00Brigade has really good food,Brigade has really good food, although it's not the intimate old fire station that I imagined, but a shiny modern corporate restaurant. It's a shame they can't swap the printed menu cards with a hand-written version ,or at least a hand-written specials sheet, and soften it in other ways. Great service, but we were alone at 7pm on a Saturday!21/04/2012 00:00:00Brigade - Excellent food andBrigade - Excellent food and very attentive service as ever. I really enjoy sitting at the bar watching the kitchen. Sad but true :-)18/04/2012 00:00:00I met a friend at BrigadeI met a friend at Brigade Bar & Bistro at London Bridge for a mid-week catch up over dinner. This is a new venue to us and we both really enjoyed the atmosphere, service and the food. We selected the three menu offer and there were great options. I will definitely book this place again.09/04/2012 16:00:00Thoroughly enjoyed my experienceThoroughly enjoyed my experience here the food was very nice indeed!06/04/2012 00:00:00Very nice food and atmosphere,Very nice food and atmosphere, the daily special was amazing!06/04/2012 00:00:00Brigade - London Bridge. Brigade - London Bridge. Excellent food as ever and I love eating whilst watching the kitchen working. A great experience and will go back again.05/04/2012 00:00:00Brigade, Tooley Street. NotBrigade, Tooley Street. Not a good start with nobody on the reception desk to greet us. Throughout the meal the service was a little haphazard and unprofessional. However, the food was beautifully cooked and presented. Prices are quite steep given that they make a big thing of using 'apprentice' chefs - shouldn't the prices reflect this? The TT offer of 25% off food was therefore welcome. I hope they address some of the current shortcomings as this could be a very good local restaurant.30/03/2012 00:00:00The service and food at BrigadeThe service and food at Brigade on Tooley Street is consistently good. A fairly short menu but good choices and the food is regional and of vey good quality. The rack of lamb was delicious and a good helping. The puddings are quite unusual and delicious - apple trifle, cardamon and chocolate fondant pudding. Recommend22/03/2012 17:00:00Brigade - London Bridge. Brigade - London Bridge. The 50% off deal makes this superb value for very good food. I sat at the bar watching the kitchen in operation which was great fun. Highly recommended18/03/2012 17:00:00Brigade Bar & Bistro - GreatBrigade Bar & Bistro - Great ambience and lovely staff. Food was average, my lamb main was a little chewy but my scallop/risotto starter was delish and I would def recommend it.16/03/2012 00:00:00Brigade - London Bridge. Brigade - London Bridge. Fantastic burger and the 50% off food deal is great value. Really recommended.13/03/2012 17:00:00The Brigade Bar & Bistro isThe Brigade Bar & Bistro is in an old fire station near London Bridge station...it has a great atmosphere and comfortable feel, managing to be both relaxed and suitable for entertaining clients.
The food was great and the service was attentive but never over the top.
I would definitely come here again.12/03/2012 17:00:00Brigade Bar & Bistro: I actuallyBrigade Bar & Bistro: I actually meant to book somewhere else and this was a mistake as i confuded two different venues in Tooley St. But, waht a lucky mistake. The Brigade is absolutely charming. The, many, serving staff seem exceptionally pleased to see you and are totally absorbed in their work and their dishes. A few of the staff struggled with their English but as they were so nice I wolud forgive them anything! Oh, BTW, the food was quirky, tasty and great value.28/02/2012 16:00:00Very good and friendly staff.Very good and friendly staff. Food was good, but overpriced in the absence of a special offer.24/02/2012 16:00:00Brigade Bar & Bistro, TooleyBrigade Bar & Bistro, Tooley Street. Tasty and well thought out food with great service. The 50% offer made it good value for money23/02/2012 16:00:00Four of us had an excellentFour of us had an excellent dinner at the Brigade bistro , TooleyStreet SE1 2HZ.
The menu was varied and imaginative, service friendly and efficient and the venue spacious and comfortable. It was busy and had a lively atmosphere but accoustics were good allowing for easy conversation.. Would definitely return.16/02/2012 00:00:00Great location, a nice atmosphere.Great location, a nice atmosphere. Service stood out the most. Had a nice meal, presentation excellent but just lacked a little something extra. Would recommend if you can get a special offer pric.12/02/2012 16:00:00Brigade, London, Nice locationBrigade, London, Nice location very close to the Thames and convenient for Southwark Playhouse. Good value on the Toptable 50% offer but would otherwise be quite expensive. The pollock was very bland but the steak was excellent. Nice to see a "Jamie Oliver" style venture training people who have hit rough times. Would return10/02/2012 16:00:00Delightful evening at theDelightful evening at the Fire Station, London Bridge. After a mild impression with the starter (scallops), the main was absolutely amazing: mine was the venison two way, a pure festival of flavours. My friend was speechless with the duck, which - knowing him - is a very good sign ! Although we had to chase up to get our bottle of wine, service was friendly and professional. A place I would definitely go back to.08/02/2012 00:00:00Brigade Bistro - London Bridge.Brigade Bistro - London Bridge. The service here is great. Very attentive and friendly. The food is also excellent. The burger is fab and the pork was delicious. Highly recommended31/01/2012 16:00:00Brigade Bar & Bistro LondonBrigade Bar & Bistro London Bridge - It is not often I rave about a restaurant but I have to say the food and service (especially at 50% off) was outstanding. Nessa - our waitress was spot on and the buger which worked out at £7.75 was probably the best I've ever had - and I've eaten quite a few in my time. We will be going back many times and intend to work through the menu. Love the ethod of the place too as they employee and train former homeless people. Fabulous and highly recommended17/01/2012 16:00:00Previous reviews of the BrigadePrevious reviews of the Brigade in London Bridge (dodgy service and not enough choice for vegetarians) meant that we were slightly nervous but this was not our experience and a lovely evening was had. My 2 vegetarian friends felt well catered for - delicious mushrooms and fabulous risotto. My pork belly was lovely and an apple trifle ended a great meal. It's a business with a social conscious (and a cookery school!) which made us feel warm inside and we'll definitely be back. Staff great too!12/01/2012 16:00:00Great service and excellentGreat service and excellent value for money. The offer covers the entire menu which leaves you with considerable choice for such a great reduction in cost (we opted for 50% food).
A tad loud during the lunchtime rush but overall a fab atmosphere.
Would return.10/01/2012 16:00:00Brigade, London. Really goodBrigade, London. Really good food and a nice location if you happen to be in the London Bridge area. The portions were, however, tiny and I would not have been happy paying the full price for the meal. We finished the meal with a platter of cheese to fill us up!06/01/2012 16:00:00A first visit to Brigade andA first visit to Brigade and impressive. The menu's not extensive but is varied/interesting enough for us to have a hard time choosing! It seems to be a charitable venture, like15, but the waiting staff were all foreign (a Kiwi, a French woman and someone from the Baltic) so perhaps that applies to the kitchen staff.
One quibble: we used the 50% off food option and, whilst this was done, the VAT was then added on the undiscounted bill. I couldn't be bothered to argue but that's wrong!05/01/2012 16:00:00Brigade at London Bridge isBrigade at London Bridge is certainly an interesting place. The community project is obviously a commendable venture. The staff are friendly and efficient. The menu is innovative and the food is beautifully presented. Unfortunately, however, it didn't taste as good as it looked - in fact it was lacking in flavour. It is also incredibly expensive for what it is.02/01/2012 16:00:00
