    We really enjoyed our dinner (group of 5). The menu is has a nice international variety, everything seemed to be freshly prepared in the kitchen. Also very nicely presented and all dishes (we had 5 different) came out warm on time and tasted very good. The service was excellent. The place is somewhat hidden in a residential neighborhood but the inside decor is very nice.

    We've been here 4-5 times now, and have always had a very good dining experience. The menu is varied enough to suit all appetites and tastebuds, the 'special' menu always adds more interesting choices, and the service is always friendly and efficient. Kudos to whomever suggests wine pairings for the special menu - they are spot on!!

    Food is always very good with lots off different flavours, so something for all different food palates. Only complaint is the noise level. Would be good if some sort of noise absorbing material could be installed to absorb the noise. Great for a fun night out with friends but would not attempt a romantic evening.

    I had heard of Bistro Merlot, but had never been. When I saw the restaurant's name featured in a recent LivingSocial deal ($18 for $40 worth of food/drinks), I bought it. We also went on Ladies' Night (Wednesdays) and chose the table d'hôte, which is normally around $15, but because we were using our voucher and the restaurant's rule - which I think is very fair and understandable - that two promotions cannot be combined, our table d'hôtes were $22.00. We each had salad and delicious thin-crust pizza with asparagus and brie, along with wine. The desserts were also decadent and satisfying. The ambience was quiet and intimate, the space nicely decorated. This was my first time at Bistro Merlot, but it will definitely not be my last!

    The food was good as was the service. Bring a sweater or dinner jacket, as I found the dining area quite cold.

    Spectacular food and great if you live in the neighborhood. They really have to work on the ambiance, but the gastronomic experience was very good.

    We went on a wednesday night during spring break & it was quiet. I had already visited twice & the food was better this time around. We started with the dumplings, which were very tasty & so were our mains. The service was also very good & I look forward on my next visit.

    We had another delicious dinner at Bistro Merlot on Saturday. It is very close to home and such a wonderful restaurant. We ordered the Penne Mendocino, the Fish and Chips and the chicken fingers. All were a hit. Keep up the delicious meals......your restaurant is a true gem.
