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 charcuterie, 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 Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11:30- 2:30 with a patio menu between 2:30-4pm and we are open 7 days a week, 4pm to close.

Another great meal at the Brasserie. Our meals were delayed because of a small wedding but we enjoyed appetizers, delicious bread baskets and very attentive water tips ups while we waited. Without us even mentioning the wait, our servers informed us they would be sending a complimentary desserts for the table. 10/10 would recommend.

Always a great time, and a great meal. Had the burger which is such an indulgence. Handled the COVID restrictions with grace and was a pleasure dining. Will be back :)

Still one of the top three restaurants in Halifax imo.
Superb food and exceptional service make it so.
I appreciate how well trained the wait staff are.
I have never had a meal here that I have not thoroughly enjoyed.
Coping well with the “ Covid rules”
I have been here often. If you haven’t then you need to go !

It was our second time there, and now we’ve enjoyed 4 entrees. Really enjoyed our meal. We did find it a tad noisy - high ceilings are a problem😞. It seems the servers aren’t specified to a table - we ordered drinks from one, and another brought them, and the same with our food order. I guess they work as a team, which is a good thing👍🏻

I brought my daughter to Agricola Street Brasserie for a date night. It was a beautiful evening and we asked to sit outside upon arrival and we were graciously accommodated. We were there for a leisurely dinner and our server was fabulous!! She knew exactly when to check in on us and never rushed us or hurried us along. Food was excellent! We shared the calamari, mussels and fries and topped our dinner off with their chocolate torte! It was a lovely evening from beginning to end! I should add that we felt safe the entire time. We sat on the upstairs patio and tables were well separated with minimal guest and we were able to download the menu on to our phones. Well...I was technically challenged but my daughter was able to figure it out! Looking forward to many more date nights!

Server at front desk took a phone call while we stood in front of her and did not acknowledge us; call was very lengthy. Our reservation was made a week in advance and I learned the policy was the patio was for walk ins. While we eventually got a table on upstairs patio the experience was not made pleasant for us as we felt the same server simply dismissed us.

Food was excellent! Well price for the quality! Service was good was busy so acceptably slow for drinks and food. Small place so tends to have a bit of noise for conversation. Would recommend for those looking for an elegant place to have a dinner or event.

Food and service were excellent, but very disappointed that servers were not wearing masks. Business was brisk and busy so I was happy about this as I support my local eating establishments, but I won’t be returning sadly. I am a health care provider and wear a masks all day at work and in public indoor spaces where I cannot be guaranteed 6 ft distancing. I expect eating establishments to keep me safe by providing masks to their servers and requiring them to wear them.

Everything was very good it was our first
Meal during covid and it would have been nice to see the staff wearing masks. This might change our decision with future visits. By the flavours were great and atmosphere was amazing.

Service was very slow but server was nice. Food wasn’t worth the spend. Sent back our dish due to undercooked vegetables and received back more undercooked vegetables and smaller protein portions the previously. Still charged us for the meal in the end. Saw numerous people around us send back food and make complaints most not being as calm as we were.
All in all, nice space, feel bad cause our server was nice but food was awful. Not worth the spend.

Enjoyed a wonderful evening on the rooftop patio for their happy hour. Ordered the charcuterie plate as well, which came on the most beautiful natural wooden board. The service was excellent and the noise level was perfect, even though we sat directly under the speakers. Will absolutely be returning!

Our server Sara was lovely and attentive. The olives and chorizo appetizer was delicious, not enough chorizo. The mussels were perfect and the sauce delicious, left me wanting more! The frozen lemon sorbet is perfectly refreshing on a warm summer evening, perfect way to end the meal.

I took my husband out here for his 40th Birthday - he's been finishing his MFA here in Halifax for 2 years and we've only been out alone (i.e. sans 7 year old) one time in 2 years! The Brasserie was an outstanding outing not only for that reason but for the first time out since the beginning of the Pandemic! The service was great! The food was amazing! and the drink kept flowing!! 10 stars +! (extra credit for Covid-19 precautions!)

First time out Since easing of Covid19 rules.. We were expecting staff to be wearing mask. Tables were well spaced. Service was good. We both had the fish for main course. Over cooked. Calamari and chocolate tote we both great.
