Had dinner with my husband here one night after having to leave the restaurant we chose initially because it was like an oven inside (hot!!) Brasserie looked inviting from across the street with their windows all opened. Sat at a corner table by the window...More

Myself and another couple went here for brunch and it was amazing. I had the Alberta lamb hash and it is to die for. The Caesars are equally as amazing.

I love French and French-inspired food, and found a great place to try a short walk down the street and across a river from my hotel. I went up the stairs and was promptly seated by the window by a very friendly gentleman, who was...More

The menu is basic over priced and if you have any dietary restrictions be prepared to be judged and eye rolled at. The environment is one of your lucky to be here...take what you get.More

Hi Meaghan. We are disappointed to see this review as this is certainly not the service that we strive for, and we apologize for the service that you received. Our kitchen is always happy to try to accommodate all dietary restrictions. We want to create...More

Very comfortable ambiance! Staff very accommodating! Menu is very seafood and bistro style in it's presentation. Best duck fat pommes frites in town! Duck dishes are exquisite. Great variety of beers---wine menu sophisticated---quality whiskeys. Brunch appears to be a "Flagship" favourite! Definite repeat!

I was so excited to finally dine at Brasserie as I read the positive reviews. All I can say is that it was an off day for them. My duck eggs and sausage came out very greasy and the fried eggs were a little too...More

Description
We are a twist on a European Brasserie, inspired by Chef's rustic, simple and down-to-earth approach to food and cooking. We are known for our duck, hanger steak, poutines and other hearty, comfort food housemade with fresh & local ingredients. Indulgence is always on the menu here, but so are lighter seasonal favourites, like our blackened salmon salad, whole roasted trout, or veggie burger. Our Saturday & Sunday brunch is always hopping, and if chef is in the kitchen he is usually cooking up outrageous features like 32oz steak and 8 eggs. Expect an eclectic and cozy décor, with everything from your grandmas old paintings to stuffed boar trophies.
