Designed by award-winning architects Foster & Partner, The Brasserie at Sage Gateshead delivers refined European cuisine using quality, locally-sourced ingredients. In this cosmopolitan hideout, guests can enjoy enthralling views of Newcastle's winding river, and both the Tyne and Millennium bridges.
As well as hearty Sunday roasts, The Brasserie menu includes dishes such as pork and pistachio terrine, paired with an apple and fennel salad and dressed in a creamy mustard sauce. Pan-seared chicken breast is offset by creamed smoked bacon, savoy cabbage and drizzled in a thick red wine jus, while an innovative offering of iced coffee parfait is matched with black cherry compote and buttery hazelnut sable.
Housed inside an ultra-modern bubble of glass and steel, The Brasserie Gateshead employs minimalist furnishing, with prime focus placed instead on the spectacular riverside setting. Spotlights litter the stretching ceiling, while polished oak tables punctuate the spacious dining room.
On the banks of the River Tyne, The Brasserie in Tyne & Wear plays host to a variety of festivals, and is open to all: not just guests visiting for a concert.

Customer reviews for The Brasserie
((((* 27 October 2016 by Geoffrey Unsworth from Billingham
Excellent communication and courteous service priced fairly however we found the starter tasty and adequate the main course was good and enjoyable however the sweet let the meal down, the description of sweet said trifle slice but what we received was a reconstructed trifle which we ate and paid for we left a service tip however the experience would be better with a more selective menu with more variation and stop reconstructing dishes.

The meal was excellent, very well cooked, well presented and reasonably priced. The staff were all very friendly and helpful without being too conspicuous. Thoroughly enjoyable experience which was then followed by a very enjoyable performance by the RAF Band.

Staff very friendly and competent and ambience was great. The menu was restrictive, 2 meat, 1 fish and a vegetarian dish but we were told that there wasn't any beef left. The portion, especially the salmon,was tiny but tasty. Desert was described as trifle but was more like dry carrot cake with gelatine on top. Very disappointed in the whole meal especially as it was expensive.

We arrived prompt for our 17.45 booking at The Brasserie, our Male Greeter gave us the choice of Dining within the Restaurant or would we prefer to Dine looking out on the River front, we chose the River front, our Greeter, showed us to our table along with our Waitress, with Menu's to hand, as well as asking would we like Water at the table and a drinks order too.
After making our choices from the Menu
Starters:- 1 x Vegetarian Nicoise Salad & 1 x Cesar Salad. Which were Excellent.
Main Course:- 1 x Salmon & 1 x Red Wine Braised Beef. Which were Excellent.
Dessert:- 1 x Raspberry Pistachio Trifle Slice & 1 x Baked Chocolate Tart. The Raspberry Pistachio Trifle Slice was hard and the only fault we had.
All food selections were served in a timely manner by our Waitress, who was very pleasant as well as obliging towards us and not served in a rushed manner. This was much appreciated.
We enjoyed the Meal Experience at The Brasserie and we look forward to our return to the Restaurant shortly.
We would recommend the Restaurant to friends and family.

The service was excellent and although we were slightly disappointed with the sweet, a trifle it wasn't, cake yes, overall we both found the quality of the food to be very good indeed. I had the belly pork for main and it was simply delicious, my wife had the braised beef and she enthused about that also. We have eaten there before and we think the quality of both the food and service was better than our last visit.

It was my first visit to the restaurant, though not to the Sage. Relaxing over a meal before event with friends was lovely.

Did not actually dine at Te Brasserie as the only vegetarian option came with Parmesan cheese which is not vegetarian.When this was pointed out we were not even given another option of meal so we had to dine elsewhere.
The Brasserie itself looked very good but disappointed we never got the chance to sample it

I had the ribeye with hand cut chips, but there was no option on the menu to add a portion of veg. That was disappointing. Overall, the staff were very friendly and the food was very good. Thank you.
