Overcharged and underserved 4/16/2012

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! more

Horrible experience-- what a waste! 7/28/2008

We made a reservation for Sunday night and arrived early. Even though the restaurant was empty, we were shuffled to the corner. The waiter, Josh, was pretentious and rude. When we asked for his opinion on a bottle of wine (yes, it was not the most expensive wine on the list), he responded: ""I don't know how much wine do you drink, it's impossible for me to give you a sterling answer"". He then tried to up-sell another bottle that costs twice as much. Just came back from wine country, we felt that was way over-priced. We went with our choice, a 2000 California cab, and he came back in 2 minutes and told us they were out of that bottle and asked us to pick another one, so we did. \r \r The food was nothing to write home about and the service was rushed-- from the bread, the appetizer to the entree was less than 10 minutes. We were still at our first glass and they came to pick up the dishes. Eventually I asked him, ""Are you closing early today?"" He said, ""No. Why?"" I told him we never felt so rushed by the service in a decent restaurant. He said they were prepared for the restaurant week and everything was ready to go (pre-cooked, I assume). His attitude was so snobbish that we felt insulted.\r \r We went there for its menu and the quality was disappointing. The scallop tasted previously frozen and the fish was smaller than a business card. I had the wild berry with cream for dessert and the blueberry (which should be in season) was dry out and wrinkled. I felt we wasted a perfect evening and over a hundred dollars, which could be spent anywhere else with much enjoyable results. \r \r I would not go back and definitely not recommend it. Pros: Convenient location Cons: Condescending, pretentious and snobbish service more

Very surprised it's part of Intercontinental 5/29/2006

Given the IC name I thought Brighton's would at least be semi-decent. Was I ever wrong! Its food quality rivals that of Denny's. There are much better choices in the Inner Harbor. The only good thing is the valet parking for free (but you tip them anyhow). Service is okay, but certainly not what one would expect from an IC restaurant. A Day's Inn, maybe. Pros: parking Cons: food, price, service more
