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 size of the oysters were very small for the price of $21. per half dozen.
The broccolli caesar salad was very good and tasty

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.
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.

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.
