Northshore Brasserie is a family owned, full-service restaurant and bar serving French Belgian cuisine in a relaxed and sophisticated atmosphere. Over the last decade, we have become a Knoxville favorite known for hearty delicious food, and outstanding service. For dinner, we specialize in Brasserie classics, such as: steak frites, mussels, roast chicken, fresh seafood, and handmade pastas. We also take advantage of local produce and meats to create in season specials. Our bar has a vibrant, unpretentious atmosphere where locals and out-of-towners gather to enjoy craft cocktails, Belgian beers, and a selection of wines from around the world.

    Sadly, the food is the only thing that has stayed at a high level. After many years of enjoying our visits, the service has become more hit or miss, and mostly miss. The food was top notch as usual. The attentiveness wasn’t there when we sat down (usually we had water and bread immediately), we had to remind/confirm with our waiter that it was half-price wine night, and then we waited over 20 minutes for our main course. This after we had placed the order when our appetizer was served. I like a restaurant that doesn’t rush you, but this was inattentive. It will be a long time before (or if) we return.

    The food is always delicious so to no surprise, it was again. We all ordered something different. You really can't go wrong with any of the entrees. What was really impressive was the service!! Many different people doing different jobs to make sure all was good. We slightly overstayed, but the staff continued to check on us and kept our water glasses full. Very impressive. Keep up the good work.

    The salmon dish as zero flavor from both the salmon and beet dish. Not even salt. I would encourage trying Elkmont and maybe fry with skin, And not cooking too well done as it was dry and very firm. The oyster salad we have had numerous times and typically abundant with large oysters-this one had tiny ones if any. There were at least three with nothing inside-just a fry fritter. Unfortunate experience as we typically have a great meal.

    We've enjoyed many past dinners at Northshore Brasserie since moving back to Knoxville from California a few years ago. Food is consistently terrific and well-prepared, and service is routinely excellent as well. While we've always enjoyed great service, I have to say that the hospitality we experienced last night from our server, Olivia H., was truly exceptional. She was so courteous to give us time to catch up with our friends who we had not seen for several months before taking our order, she was very knowledgeable about the menu and made great recommendations, she paced the courses perfectly and checked back with us frequently to be sure everything was as it should be, even though the restaurant was very busy. She engaged us in a very positive way that made our dining experience even better and more special than usual. Thank you!

    The short ribs were the best in town! I thought they were better than Elmont station and Seasons that the grub Scout ranked in the top 10 restaurants in town. The New York strip was tough and grizzly. That was the only downside.

    Asked for (& was provided with) the quietest possible table for conversation. Early arrival helped. Opted for moules (one Pernod & one Provençal) excellent but needed crusty or toasted bread to accompany (or slide towards something resembling poutine with some truffle fries added) (we play with our food) It was a terrific experience, best moules in Knoxville (or Asheville) --the word voluptuous comes to mind. Good service by Kevin. Chimay worked better than wine for me.

    Northshore Brasserie has consistently delivered top value for the dollar for many years. Food is always top quality and service is friendly and attentive. The return addition of the grilled calamari and the rabbit terrine to the appetizer list makes what was previously a great assortment into outstanding. Bravo. Also, the pork chop special last night was exceptional. BTW, if you haven't already, get the decadent chocolate mousse for dessert. It is made with European chocolate and is simply to die for. What a magnificent neighborhood establishment!

    Will was excellent despite our last minute reservation. All of his recommendations and advice were spot on. He was attentive even when the restaurant filled up. We love Northshore Brasserie and he gave us one more reason to love it more. This has been a favorite of ours for years now and this last example only reinforced it.

    Northshore Brasserie is a fantastic Belgian-style brasserie. The meals are outstanding and the service is tops. The only drawback is that when the restaurant is busy, the ambience can get loud. This could be managed with acoustics, but Northshore Brasserie remains my highest recommendation in the Knoxville area.
