Agricola Street Brasserie

17/20 Seasoned Plate Rating
European Brasserie
2540 Agricola St. Halifax, NS

This upscale European inspired brasserie has a welcoming vibe and a Eurocentric food program. The dining room is large and open, the kitchen is in view, and the beverage list is expansive. Even though it is fancy and a large space, it is also warm, relaxed, and inviting.

This restaurant has very comforting food. They have a range of delicious charcuterie boards and seafood towers to share in addition to house baked bread and indulgent daily specials. It’s the type of restaurant the caters to celebrations of all sorts. It’s the perfect destination for a first date, a graduation celebration, or to wow friends visiting from out of town.

Their food is complex, and they highlight European classics like duck confit and steak tartare. They also have more approachable options like fresh fish and steak frites. The meals are rich in flavour and filling. This place feels like one could stay forever, and with their open concept and interesting drink list, you probably could.

They have a range of dining options and room spaces to accommodate a range of guest needs and their rooftop patio is wonderful in both summer and winter – in their heated dome tent. This restaurant is a truly beautiful space and one can always count on a solid dining experience when eating here.
