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.

Ambiance was incredible, beautiful restaurant. The food was Good for the New Year’s Eve preset menu but not really worth the value. For the starters the was scallops were divine, however the main courses shot below their weight class. We ordered the wine pairing which did not come with names, explanations and for 2 of the 4 courses did not accompany the meal. For dessert we ordered the chocolate cake; the cake was rich and moist, but the plating lacked ‘something’ and would have been better paired with a fruit other than a mild pear puree. Would go back again but not for an occasion with a preset menu.

I have loved coming to the Agricola Brasserie for a few years now. Previously, we had excellent service and the food was also superb. This experience was nothing like before. The waiter rushed us from the minute we sat down until she was paid. We were asked for our drink order four times within the space of just a few minutes and it continued that way. The instant two of us finished our main course, she came and cleared and asked if the third person wanted theirs packaged to take home. As the steak was rubbery and difficult to chew, it took longer to eat. Desserts were brought immediately, while the third still eating the rubber steak. No offer of coffee or tea and the bill was brought immediately. Given there were only 3 tables in the restaurant, there was clearly no demand for the table. By the way, upon arrival we requested to sit at a different table and were told it was booked for someone else. No one else came all evening. Unfortunately, this is no longer somewhere I can recommend and will be going elsewhere from now on.

Went online to book the outdoor dome for a special occasion to dine with an executive from out of town and told them the dome was booked. Called the day of to confirm and was told that the website shouldn’t say outside anymore as that’s only for summer and lots of guests get confused about outside NOT meaning the dome. Was told needed min 6 people or $1000 spend - did not see ANY mention of this on the website. Was embarrassing and very disappointed that the website isn’t more clear to easily avoid this in the future for other guests.

Agricola Street Brasserie
Responded on December 17, 2021

I'm sorry that this confusion happened. As I explained when we spoke on the phone because the dome is designed to be a full evening experience it is necessary to book it over email. That way we can explain the tasting menu format along with a few other points. Unfortunately our system allowed you to book a table on the patio, which is a function that is turned off even in the summer. I'm looking into how this happened but I apologize again for any embarrassment or inconvenience.

Went for a birthday and could not have asked for a better experience! The service was phenomenal, even picking up we were out for an occasion, asked about it, and provided a free dessert with a candle and happy birthday written in chocolate! This was a great touch as it was completely unexpected! On top of that the food was excellent and the drink selection was great! I would highly recommend to anybody looking for a fun experience, good food, and a nice ambiance!

The calamari was some of the best in the city. The fried brussels sprout caesar was unique and absolutely delicious! I had the duck breast which was perfectly cooked and my husband had the coq au vin which was served like I'd never seen before and oh so delicious. Both dishes came with different seasonal vegetables which were lovely.
Our server was friendly and attentive without being intrusive.
I'd highly recommend this restaurant.

Lovely space, accommodating of our 6 month old nephew. Food was okay, calamari great but the beef tartare was hard to stomach. Normally tartare is more minced and this was challenging to get on a chip, all kind of stringy and super chewy. All other dishes were just ok. Overall probably wouldn’t return but a nice location for sure.

We had scallops to start - seemed expensive, $18 for 3 scallops with a strip of pork belly. That being said, it was delicious, and the scallops were cooked perfectly!!
We had the burger week burgers - they were fantastic. Full of flavour. The dipping sauce for the fries seemed almost like a tartar sauce - it was sooooo good!! The service was quite slow, however, the food & ambience were great! I will be back!

Food was mediocre.
My partner ordered eggs over easy. One was semi over easy the other one was cooked well, definitely not over easy. The sausage was bland and had zero taste. Food came out slightly warm at best and there was barely anyone in the restaurant.
