    We celebrated a couple of birthdays at Northshore Brasserie, and once again, it did not disappoint. My wife and two companions indulged in delightful steak and frites, impeccably prepared to perfection. As for myself, I savored a delightful salmon dish that left me thoroughly satisfied. Our server, Olivia, added an extra layer of enjoyment to our dining experience with her attentive and friendly service.

    As always excellent food. Our waiter (who may have been new) was not the usual caliber I’ve had at Brasserie for the last 20 years. He forgot part of the order, did not know the rules for half price wine night and was in general not knowledgeable about Brasserie menu and service. We had the usual delicious cuisine but with poor service. Definitely not the Brasserie standard we are used to!

    The overall meal was great, including the service. Two things they need to really work on is the apps and greens side dishes. The seared calamari was rubbish, pretty much the worst I’ve ever had and the green side dishes were equally as bad. We all “4” ordered the short rib which was great but could have used a little more dipping sauce as it was slightly dry but not so dry that any of us were disappointed and still happy we ordered it. Was it the best short rib we’ve enjoyed, certainly not but it’s probably the best in Farragut and bearden area for sure. Definitely will order again as we really like the restaurant overall. If they could just bring up the disappointing other apps and side dishes the place would be a real winner. Whatever you do, don’t get the table next to the hostess stand if you are a party of 2 plus. Worst table location you can get and your guest will be bumped and annoyed the entire time. We call it, the “you’re screwed” table when they are packed.

    We have eaten there many times and generally the food is always good to very good. This time we had 2 of our regulars and they were just poor. The mussels and the Burata were both huge disappointment compared to our past experiences. The Chef's special Osso Bucca was very good.

    The oyster salad and burger were incredible. I was a little underwhelmed by the pork Osso Busco  there were parts that were a little dry, and the sweet potatoes had very little seasoning and actually no flavor.

    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!
