We went for their Wednesday oyster special - a little disappointed by them. Whoever is shucking them needs more experience with keeping debris out of them and loosening the meat. We ordered 2 dz and about 6 were a respectable size. The others were tiny - Far too small to be served half shell. Sauces were very good, though!
Ordered the Duck with quinoa, beet purée, and roasted vegetables. Quinoa and beet were excellent! Duck was flavorful. Roasted vegetables were overdone - almost burnt.
Overall - not bad, but not great. I know they have some great dishes. Maybe just an off night, but we probably won’t bother getting the oysters again.

For as nice a place as it was supposed to be, we spent our $200 sitting at a table looking at the filthiest kitchen I have seen in a long time. Black stuff hanging off the vents above where they prepared their meals. Side dish with melted cheese was not hot, which means the cheese was not melted. The steak was delicious, the bread and appetizers very good and the drinks were made well.

Went for Valentine's Day and got the Onion Soup Gratinee and Escargot as apps, Duck Duo and Beef Bourguignon as main dishes, Brussel Sprouts as a side, and finished things off with the Belgian Choclate cake for dessert. Overall, it was a pleasant experience but not worth the price. The seared breast in the duck duo was not warm and a different temperature than the confit leg and one side of the Beef plate was cooler than the other. It felt like everything was reheated rather than freshly cooked. The chocolate cake was dry and too firm. Finally, I thought it was odd that the waiting staff didn't have a uniform. They were all dressed differently ranging from sport coats to Patagonia fleeces giving an unprofessional look. Great atmosphere and ambience. Overall, decent but not worth the price.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Knoxville. Food is always great and service good. It sometimes gets a bit noisy in there but I can overlook the noisy for the great food and service.
My favorites are the tartare and the duck but never had anything that wasn’t great!!

The meal was amazing and our server was very attentive to perfect service!
I went with my son to celebrate my birthday and he was always making sure my son was happy with his food and that I got everything i wanted.
All food was served perfectly, and servers were always making sure we were taken care of. Both my son's cheeseburger (best in town!) and my duck were perfectly seasoned and cooked.
It was amazing and they celebrated my birthday with a complimentary desert and candle.

Looking forward to going back!

As I have come to expect of Northshore Brassiere, everything was wonderful! The service was excellent from start to finish. Descriptions of the specials as well as the recommendations on wine were on point! Food was amazing! I have never had a bad dinning experience here and will continue to come for special occasions as well as just a night out.
