The Brasserie has become synonymous with the North End of Halifax, the region’s most vibrant food destination, serving locally sourced product in an iconic neighborhood.

French inspired food in a stylish and vibrant atmosphere, the Brasserie (est. 2013) focuses on sustainable seafood & ambitious sophisticated cooking where all breads, jams, sauces and desserts are made in house.

Sit on the butcher block bar and enjoy a glass of wine after work, a bar snack, or a full menu during dinner hours. The exposed brick lounge offers a cozy nook for quiet conversation. Further inside the Brasserie is an open kitchen where one can sit at the counter and enjoy the inner workings of the Brasserie culinary operation. Our lively upstairs patio seats 50 and is open during the sunny summer months for cocktails & cuisine.

We welcome you for Brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 11:30- 2:30 with a snack menu between 2:30-4pm and we are open 7 days a week, 4pm to close.

    Good food but I’d say the portion doesn’t fit the price-to be expected at nicer restaurants, service was friendly but a little slow, restaurant was a bit noisy, overall 8/10

    Party of five: Drink prices are steep. Cocktail recipes need some work. Appetizers: calamari, steak tartare, beet salad, & shrimp--all were very good. I'd rework the dip for the calamari to make it lighter. Mains: cod, salmon, steak & frites--thumbs up all around. (My steak was a perfect medium rare and the frites were excellent.) Desserts: sugar pie, opera cake, vanilla cheesecake, & petits fours. The sugar pie was the best of the lot. The cheesecake was also very good. The opera cake was so-so. The petits fours makes for a nice sharing plate for two. Our server was very good and eager to please. Please clear the snow next to the curb. Thanks for a lovely evening.

    We had the special Valentine’s Day menu. The appetizers were incredible but the main and dessert were not anything special, especially for the price point ($65 per person without wine pairings). There are definitely better restaurants in that price range in halifax. However the service and ambiance were great!

    What a pleasure dinner was tonight. The young man who served us was perfectly personable. Great service from start to finish. A young lady who served drinks was excellent and each course was serviced quickly and was nice and hot! Highly recommend the duck! Often have each execution of duck from here and it’s excellent!

    Food was decent - nothing spectacular … appetizers, we had the steak tartare and baked brie - steak tartare wasn’t seasoned well enough for us; mains, we had the beef Wellington and steak frites - could have been seasoned more … wine was good and service was excellent though

    So it was a hard choice whether to give this a 2/3/4 star. last night my family and I went to this establishment for dinner to celebrate an event. the atmosphere and the decor phenomenal. The service was pretty good the first server, pleasant, respectful, amazing. the second server i couldn’t tell if we were inconveniencing them or not. Very ‘as expression goes woke’ which I appreciate it but didn’t need.. but this age they have to be very respectful of everything. but it felt like we were inconveniencing her. We get to the food so I got the brasserie burger as far as flavour I would definitely give it an 8/10 as far as presentation 7-8/10 as far as functionality 4/10..it is the sloppiest to the point of disgusting burger to eat. The bottom bun was so soaked in the sauce and the juice of the meat that when you try to hold it, your fingers went right through the bun and it was a disgusting mess , it is to the point that you have to eat it with the fork and knife. It is that sloppy they could rectify this simply by toasting the bottom button that’s giving it a capability to withstand all that saturation. The other meals of our dinner, party the steak and not bad way too much meat sauce. The french fries were soaked aïoli sauce was very nice but very pungently lemon garlic.

    Food was great as always. It is expensive, but worth it, and the apps are always fairly good value for their deliciousness. Love the vibe and atmosphere, lights dim around 7:30ish, good for a romantic or business casual meal. Only thing is, service can be slow, with splitting an app, and two mains, we signalled them for the bill at the 2hr mark. Also, I had booked for our anniversary, and marked it as such in the reservation, and I think it would've been nice for them to acknowledge that, but other than that and the slower service, everything was great.

    The food was great, this is my 4th time coming to the restaurant and I brought my family because I love the food and ambiance so much. However the food took so long - it took around an hour and a half to get our food. The table sat next to us were seated after we ordered and received, finished and paid for their food before we got ours.

  • Private party facilities
    Agricola Street Brasserie can accommodate up to 25 guests for private dining in the mezzanine overlooking the open kitchen. Perfect for a private dinner party, a christmas event or a dinner lecture, it’s tucked away enough to be private but open enough to still feel a part of the dining activity. For larger events we are able to reserve the entire dining room, mezzanine and patio!
