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.

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.
Atmosphere is nice. Server was friendly.

The server was great, especially as it related to the dish that I ordered that I didn’t like. I had come specifically for the steak tartare, but apparently the recipe was changed from the ‘winter version’ to the ‘summer version’ and I thought the new one was bland, didn’t have the different textures like the old one, one-dimensional in terms of flavour, or lack there of, and the egg yolk was too much (as opposed to using a smaller yolk like from quail). Was disappointed with it. The server suggested something else, which was good but didn’t blow me away like the tartare I had several months ago in April.

Agricola Street Brasserie has the friendliest staff and is a totally peanut free restaurant! This was huge for us as we have an intense peanut allergy among our group. Being able to eat worry free is huge. A new regular spot for us, for sure.

Sadly, did not overly enjoy my experience at the the Agricola Street Brasserie. As a previous server myself I sympathize with the situation that restaurants are in right now. Our server was new and didn't know the drinks or food menu well, which I totally understand. Also service was slow, slow to come to the table and between the apps and the mains it took a long time. On top of that they didn't have a few of the ingredients to make different cocktails so the choice was limited and they didn't seem interested in trying to come up a solution or offer other ideas so there was limited choice as to cocktails. Usually bartenders are down to make something up based on what they do have but it seemed to us the didn't want to do that. The apps were fine, no horseradish for the oysters. The mains were also fine, certainly not wowed, the mushroom pasta came out cold and for the price that was disappointing. Burger was good, fries tasted like they had no salt but they were able to bring some to the table.

Very much enjoyed dinner. The calamari was excellent and the mushroom pasta was also very enjoyable. One of our group had duck and gave me a sample, it was cooked beautifully. Our server was attentive and helpful.
All in all a very pleasant eating experience.
Restaurant is set up for Covid safety.

A beautiful space, a well-honed menu of interesting, expertly curated items, attentive and skilled staff, energizing but not overwhelming music, a noise level that amounts to happy, lively ambience and camouflages conversation from other tables. Always a great night for food, drink and talking. This is easily the best place in Halifax to bring people you love to hang with for a special night, and it's obvious from the other patrons that they feel likewise, so there's a terrific synergy into a terrific vibe. Highest possible recommendation.

My go-to place to bring out-of-town guests. The servers are great, though this night on the rooftop patio seemed to be understaffed. Our server was responsible for the whole patio and she was having a hard time keeping up. My guests raved about their halibut and chicken meals. My plant-based option wasn't very good. However, I love that the kitchen provides ever-changing plant-based meal specials, and most times they're excellent. The Brass remains my favourite Halifax restaurant for its consistently great service, funky atmosphere inside and out, and excellently prepared food.

You are paying for the ambience(Rooftop in particular) and the great selection of cocktails. I will go again but stick with drinks and appetizers. I feel the mains are overpriced for the amount of protein you get; but, I won't complain about the taste, though!

I highly recommend everyone to experience this beauty on Agricola St!
