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.

    Overall very nice. Soup was delicious. My entree, the branzino was overcooked, but everyone else had very nice meals. Dessert was underwhelming as the pastry was over also cooked. Overall a solid restaurant but nothing I would purposely go out of my way to revisit.

    Best restaurant meal I’ve had in Knoxville in 25 years of living here. The mussels were outstanding. Everything worked together, from the hot crusty bread, the compound butter, the perfectly cooked entrees on a bed of multi ingredients that added flavor and fully complimented the feature entree.

    Food usually is more than satisfying. I made a selection that was bland and forgettable. Our server was distracted and rarely came to our table. I ordered a common digestive after-dinner drink. and they were out.Not my usual experience.

    The wine I picked from the menu was no longer available, so a gentleman from the bar helpfully suggested a couple of comparable wines. The one we chose went nicely with our entrees. The wait staff were attentive and helpful without hovering. The beer-batter shrimp and the stuffed mushrooms were delicious, but the Brasserie salads had little if any dressing and were just so-so. My date remarked her Springer Mt. Chicken was tender but rather bland. My Branzino Almadine was overcooked and tough and the associated vegetables were really unappetizing. Next time I'll order the mussels instead. The dessert was lovely. The noise level not so much.

    The restaurant was not as full as sometimes so the noise level was reduced, a pleasant surprise. I get the sense that portion sizes are increasing at Northshore, a bad sign in a nicer restaurant. The house salad was kind of blah. The spinach salad was pretty good. Entrees that require a knife, for instance confit duck legs, should be served on a plate not a bowl. You gotta have a stable place to rest the knife between bites.

    We frequent Northshore Brasserie, as it always provides incredible food and drink, while the staff is exceptional in ever way. The staff are friendly and kind….every single time. We find this fine dining, (amazing burgers and frittes included) local bar and restaurant, to be the best in Knoxville. The ambiance is absolutely beautiful and you definitely feel you are cared for in every way. The drinks are perfect and always delivered by staff of which obviously love what they do. The owners are people you would love to be friends with…and actually become. You matter. It’s clearly our favorite. Northshore Brasserie is the best of the best in Knoxville! ♥️♥️♥️

    Kevin was great and an excellent server. He made sure we were taken care of, gave great wine pairing options, and did not hover. We enjoyed the escargots, duck, and steak. However, the crème brûlée did not live up to the rest of the food. If we find ourselves in the area again, we would be more than delighted to return.

    Beef Bourgogne main course was tough with gristles in beef and somewhat overly spiced for a classic. Should be pulled from menu until they perfect it. Noise level was intolerable.

    Food was very bland. Escargot was swimming in wine and were overcooked. Mussels were also very bland, half were not opened. Beef bourguignon was terrible - excessively fatty pieces as well as some that were dry and tough. Waitress blamed it on a new chef and seemed annoyed that I told her everything wasn’t good - never heard from a manager. Will not be going back!
