A word from Bistro Nolah
We named our restaurant Bistro Nolah, an acronym for New Orleans, out of a love for the style
of comfort food they serve down south. This style of food is the inspiration behind some of the dishes we serve at Nolah

Diner Reviews
  • "Everything was just great. right from the greeting we received when we walked in.... all the way through to the dessert ! Food was outstanding ! There was not a single item that our group of 6 ladies did not enjoy thoroughly. Not a big place, so make sure to reserve.. Noise level was a bit high, but once we settled in, we managed to contribute to that :)"

  • "great food, oustanding service. We were very satisfied from the beginning to the end of our dinner last saturday night. Of course we all agreed to come back . And a special thanks to Chris (Chef co-owner) for spending time with us at the end of the night and sharing a sherry (on the house) with me and my 3 guests. Much appreciated and it was fun seeing my old friend Chris. Also many thanks to the whole staff and to Richard his partner. We'll be back !....Zoël"

  • "I live in Toronto and I've heard Bistro Nolah is a great place to dine. I don't remember the last time I had OUTSTANDING service. Our waiter was nothing but professional and great. The food was beyond tasty. I ordered the New York steak with fries. Simply delish but please...never order your steak well-done...lol. Fault of my own! The appetizers were to die for. I had many opportunities to order Grits and it never looked appealing so opted not to order it. At Bistro Nolah, the Grits were FANTASTIC; sprinkled with fresh corn and perhaps a suggestion of tasty butter?! I can still taste it as I type. Everyone is friendly and patient. The food is fresh: shrimp, sauces, desserts. A wonderful place to romance a first date or just to enjoy a meal"

  • "this is my second time going to Nolah and what was great food the first time keeps getting better. I had the fried oysters which was cooked and had a great sauce. The complementary hush puppies are really good. The main course what the blackened cat fish which was the best I had ever eaten. cooked to perfection moist and melted in your mouth. The spices were perfect and to top it off they have a fish roe which gives it the slight saltiness to bring it over the top. the catfish comes on a bed of sweet potato puree, as well as some green beans purple carrots and ground cherries. the desert that I chose was the bread pudding with a bourbon sauce which was soooo good. all in all a fantastic meal. Money well spent and worth every penny"

  • "I do admit that inside might be a bit noisy but on the terrace it was calm. Very good New Orleans style cuisine and matching service. Great choice of cocktails, we had some Jack's lemonade (hmmmm), as entrees we had fried oysters (just the right quantities) and a salad. For the main plate mine was scallops and my partner was ribs that were amazingly tender. Always a pleasure to go back!"

  • "A lovely lunch spot with a tranquil if not scenic view. Fresh seafood comes at a price and the echo in the dining room makes one cringe so head outside and enjoy the gourmet New Orleans fish or shrimp and the accoutrements."

  • "My husband and I decided to try this restaurant which reflects the culture and food of New Orleans. It was a great experience. The GUMBO, the JAMBALAYA and the BEIGNET were just great. It was like travelling to New Orleans for a fraction of the price."

  • "The title basically spells it out. The food was excellent and if you want a little taste of Cajun cooking, you`ll definitely enjoy it. The service was excellent, both very friendly and helpful. A nice quiet atmosphere, despite being on a terrace outdoors, perfect for a romantic occasion. The only downside is the price. 1 shared appetizer, 2 main dishes and 1 glass of wine shouldn't mean having to shell out over 100$. I would really like to see them offer a Table d'Hote special or something that gives you more bang for your buck. In conclusion, your dining experience will be lovely, but expect a hefty bill at the end."

  • "A few of us met there for lunch, coming from Ottawa and Montreal and the weather was great, so we could sit outside. The service was outstanding and we had three different menus, everyone was absolutely satisfied and enjoyed every dish, including the dessert, which you have to experience for yourself !!! We all will come back and recommend NOLAH highly !!"

  • "As soon as you step in this small bistro is how loud it is. With time you kind of forget but realise how quiet it is when you step out. That's the only negative thing about this place. The service was great the free shrimp cake was amazing and my grids and shrimp are a most wow. Will go back but will try the terrasse."

  • "There aren't many Cajun or Creole restaurants in Montreal - even fewer on the West Island. This was a great experience - above all the food was terrific - but the service was very professional and the atmosphere accomplished what they are looking to achieve. This is a good dining experience."

  • "As a long time patron of La Louisiane on Sherbrooke street, I was very interested to see how this place stacked up. It did not disappoint. Aside from the bread (a bit hard) the food was outstanding. The service, while extremely friendly, was pretty slow at times - which is not the end of the world as the point was not to rush through the meal. All up, I strongly recommend this restaurant and will definitely eat there again."

  • "Food woke up the taste buds. Your eyes drown in the presentation. The portions are just right on the side of big. The quality of the artic char, lamb and short ribs was the way it should be lacks comparison when perfect! The seafood gumbo is a meal in itself. The price for the quality is more than reasonable. Going to become a regular!....well done, thumbs up! Finally a decent restaurant on the WI."

  • "The food really gave an hommage to Louisianne. The Gumbo was delicious as well as everything else on the Menu. The staff was really professional and really courteous. We were with our kids and they truly enjoyed too. Definitely a neighborhood Gem!"

  • "After having read all the reviews I was excited to reserve for my first visit as a celebration of my 60th birthday. Very slow to hand us menus and offer water, exceptionally long to get an aperetif. The prices for menu items all a la carte were expensive for the portion size and the meals were mediocre at best. For example the blackened fish was not in any way related to any that I have enjoyed elsewhere. The noise level due to the ceiling height does not lend itself to conversation and the service was friendly but only adequate. Our party of 5 were all in agreement about our experience and we would neither return nor would we recommend it to others."

  • "In a a land of steak houses, pizza and pasta restos, fast food ,and take home sushi, Bisro Nolah is a refreshingly different choice. It's a great neighbourhood resto, with a comfortable space.. Wait staff is exceptional friendly and welcoming. The food was very good and well presentedWe had the scallop ceviche, black bean soup, grilled shrimp on israeli couscous (OMG fantastic texture , mouth feel and contrast to the spice of the shrimp.) The main meal was blackened catfish. Phenommmmmenal! Dessert was the bourbon pudding. Reasonable pricing and prompt service also made the visit enjoyable. Only complaint, was the coffee, I didn't like it since it tasted burnt and was too bitter."

  • "We went on a quiet mid week night. Service was a touch slow to get started (it took a while for our drinks to arrive) but the staff was pleasant. The menu was not as "Cajun/Creole" as I had thought, but indeed southern-inspired. The gumbo seemed more tomato- than dark roux-based (the latter being our preference) but was tasty, as was the shrimp Creole. The scallops were less successful - a touch rubbery, although nicely presented on a bed of sweet potato puree. The crab cakes were a little pasty in texture but tasted okay. We will give the restaurant another try soon."

  • "This was a wonderful meal. My boyfriend and I shared as many things as possible so we could taste as much as possible. We ordered the appetizer trio, spicy caesar salad (the crispy prociutto was to die for!), the special of the day - steak and shrimp and then the dessert trio. There is not one thing that we tasted that we didn't love. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to everyone and we will be back I'm sure."

  • "We really enjoyed Bistro Nolah. I went out with my family for my birthday and everyone seemed extremely pleased by their meals. The star was the chorizo gumbo for appetizer my girlfriend had which was full of flavour and very hearty. I took the Ceviche and was a little dissapointed as it was a little too thick and looked more of a stew consistency than the traditional soupy peruvien ceviches that I've had in the past. The braised meat was delicious and it was fall off the bone. The reduction was sweet and tangy and complemented the meat. The service however was suspect. The server was not at all familiar with any of the specials and had not been well educated on the menu either. that being said, overall it was a pleasant evening."

  • "Sometimes a little gem is to be found a few steps from home. As you walk in you are welcomed with a smile, introduce to your seat and taken care of like you are the only client in the restaurant. You even know your waiter by his first name. Food as a touch of simple but with a Southern charm twist. This is truly an experience for the pallet but a pleasant evening away from home."
