Bar Agricole has a great atmosphere which combines rustic and modern elements; it won a national design award. Our drinks were outstanding. We shared small plates and a dessert. The smoked salmon fritters and sauce were excellent. The platter of house-made charcuterie featured flavorsome and interesting selections with stoneground and raspberry (house-made) mustards, a large raw carrot and two slices of thick seeded bread. A few crackers would have been welcome, and the carrot would have been more inviting had it been at least halved vertically or gently pickled with perhaps a little Pernod. The romaine salad was nicely presented but even for me, who prefers an acidic dressing, there was too much vinegar. A trifle with apriums and nectarines with lemon verbena was delcious.
The staff were attentive and friendly without being over-bearing. We enjoyed some excellent cocktails, especially the "El Presidente". One of our party is a beer drinker and while the beer available was very good the selection was sparse. The food was flavourful and interesting and the family style service made it easy to order an appropriate amount for how hungry everyone was. This wasn't my first visit and it won't be my last.
I hadn’t been to the restaurant in a while. It’s still a beautiful venue. The acoustics, however, are a challenge. Music should be turned down. The gem lettuce salad was outstanding, and the chicken and poached egg with grits were delicious. Having only two main dishes is a serious drawback and disappointment. The kitchen is talented enough to add at least two more choices. As great as the charcuterie and cheese array looked, it’s no substitute for a main dish of meat and pasta, as examples. I would definitely warn anyone to whom I would recommend Bar Agricola about the menu limitations.
The cocktails were phenomenal; food was good, but very pricey for what it was.
The food and drinks were excellent. Will definitely come back.
Looking for last minute reservations for 6 on Memorial Day, we ended up at Bar Agricole. Our waiter was just a tad too earnest, but otherwise really good. After hearing they had recently won (a James Beard Foundation?) national award for their cocktail program, we ordered a few great cocktails. Our dinner was carefully prepared and proudly served. The tamale was delicious as was the stewed mole beef. The portions were somewhat small, especially the $38 salumi board and the four cured anchovies for $12. The price point was just a too bit above my comfort level.
Beautiful physical space. We will be back for a cocktail again.
Tom at the front desk was a sweetheart and accommodated our ask to sit outside. Our server (blanking on name- gentleman on a Thurs night) was outstanding in terms of knowledge, service, and fun vibe. My team loved the night and the resto let us stay outside WELL past closing. Definitely will be a repeat for us! Perfect!
Excellent cocktails. Food very good, though aside from the 3 mains the portions are a bit small. The whole cod was phenomenal.
I absolutely loved the ambiance at Bar Agricole! It was quiet, sleek, modern and yet had a welcoming warmth to it. The service was spectacular and it seemed the entire service staff was taking care of us. It is so intimate and special. I cannot wait to go back again and take some more friends! Also, congrats on winning the James Beard Award, you all definitely deserve it!
We had an absolute wonderful time! The service staff were very attentive and very friendly! We will be back!
Interesting flavors, a varied but brief menu on Friday evening, service good when you get their attention (which isn't often enough), but menu is pricey - e.g., $5/oyster and $66 whole cod.
Fabulous...loved it! We were a group of six and food was wonderful, servers were attentive and accommodating, and the space is beautiful!
Food was very salty, waitress provided good service. Expected food to be favorable, not salty.
Although it was noisy because of a large party going on, our waitperson was kind enough to reseat us. The lower dining room was quieter and we had a great time and a fantastic meal!
Second time here and we decided to sit outside. Even though it was a bit chilly, the above table heater provided plenty of warmth. Service was attentive and the cocktails and food outstanding.
Really terrible food. Never been so underwhelmed by a restaurant. No wonder why it was empty on a Friday night.
Wonderful atmosphere with chill music on the well-heated patio. Really enjoyed the food and personal touches of the chef visiting the table and an attentive server.
Not great for sharing
Food .... unremarkable
Design .... very cool
Drinks - great
Bar Agricole is a beautiful restaurant with delicious food, but the menu needs some work. It is divided into 3 sections--small, medium, and large plates. Small plates range from $10-15, medium from $13-21, and large from $40-80. We ordered a large brazilian sausage and beans dish for $75 and it arrived in a bowl large enough to feed 2 people. I'm still shocked that this dish would be this price, especially a "large" one at that. The food prices are simply not a good price for the quantity. The food was delicious, but a plate of sausage and beans is simply never worth $75.
I think the ideal way to enjoy Bar Agricole is to sit at the bar and order a cocktail, with some sides to munch on. That would be much better value for the money.
Decor was minimalist but very clean and inviting. Menu was unique and tasty. Cocktails were well done. Great service. We had a great experience.
Very expensive and doesn’t have the service to match
I arranged a dinner for 10 as follow up to a long day of meetings. The level of service our table received left me absolutely embarrassed. Starting with fact that we were only allowed one carafe of water because we were informed that all other carafes were frozen. We were instructed that only one person from our table was allowed to enter orders. Which extended even to drink orders even after multiple requests to our server to move along the table and not force each attendee to shout at her or each other. Most of our other orders were met at best with “why?” or more frequently “no, we can’t.” Your chef/ food saved it from a total disaster. But the overall experienced guaranteed that two major corporations will never dine with you again personally or professionally.
Quality, service, ambiance all 5 stars. Food a tad bland, but I think they are going for 'simple'. Generally speaking, that is OK but with the price, i'd like a lil more pazzaz. Give food 4/5 stars. Cocktails were 5/5.
Friendly and attractive. Outstanding food. Unique. Great taste.
Great for groups with just the right setting to have conversation over first class food. Service was impeccable.
Lovely excperience - great waitress and amazing food
Overpriced: portions of food and cocktails are invisible.
Light is too poor on the table, you can barerely see what you eat and the people you are sharing your meal with.
Ideal for people who love to spend money just for spending money, not actually enjoying in return.
The cod was simply amazing. We love visiting this place all the time.
The food is excellent. Can find same quality food in a cheaper place. Do not fall for the Cod!
The place looks good: modern and trendy. Food is good but quantities are ridiculusly small (and I’m French, so not used to big portions anyways) and very expensive. Also, if you seat at one of the back table, the staff will not see you if you wave at them so you might have to stand up to be seen.
Overated and overpriced
Bar Agricole has changed their menu. It is a good value for very tasty food. The waiter was sweet and charming.
I would go back and do recommend for others.
First of all, I have never carved a whole roasted fish before, so that experience was exciting. The entrance to this place is so secluded you feel as though you are going to some secret getaway. The lighting is dim n sexy... The service was a lil slow, and the overall experience was a lil pricey. I enjoyed the ambiance.. and I will recreate the mood achieved tonight again.
Long time patron. Sad about the food being subpar twice in a row.
Everything was wonderful except the restaurant temp was chilly. Seems about 10 degrees warmer than outside so on a really cold evening like the one when we were there, I think it was below 60. Next time I will be better prepared because I definitely will go back; the food, cocktails and service are outstanding.
Threw a surprise party for my friend - AMAZING service. They helped us to execute it perfectly. Food was amazing and tailored to our food preferences. 10 for 10 would recommend.
The food was ok .. but the service was not good . No character no conversation , no no enthusiasm,
It was a good place. Not phenomenal, but worth going for drinks. They try and get a little fancy on the food so the flavors can get tough to absorb. Drinks are great, wine list very decent. Seats are not comfortable. We had a good time and the place is super nice looking. I'd do a drinks happy hour there for sure. Probably not a dinner again.
Great food and cocktails
The people who run this place are phenomenally nice- and the food 💯. We will return.
We thought everything is excellently prepared and special. Our waiter was friendly and welcoming. We loved our dinner. And the cocktails are delicious.
