One of my favourite restaurants in the city. Service is great. Food selection eclectic and it is all delicious.
IMHO in the top 5 west island restaurants. Unique menu with great options, friendly staff, quiet location for a nice meal.
Been a while since we returned so decided to drop by as have been craving their delicious jalapeño bacon soup!
So of course we ordered the soup and as usual was very good and yummy 👍
Friend ordered fish and chips -one of the best I ever tasted !
I ordered the Baja 3 tacos with spicy shrimp and mango corn salsa. It was ok -not enough shrimp in each Ta o (2 small) and not spicy at all. Fries were really good -homemade cut type .
Red strip beer and Caipirinha (best ever).
Delicious food and a nice variety to choose from. Large portions, we had enough to take home and enjoy for lunch the next day. Our server, Ian, was friendly and helpful. Overall, a nice one-of-a-kind restaurant that's well-worth frequenting.
Very good! I was disappointed to see the easter menu but everything was delicious. Cant wait to go back on a regular night to taste the regular menu :)
Excellent super. Nice table d’hôte choices and very tasty.
Recommend for a nice evening out.
Great restaurant. The food was good. I ordered the Korean rice bowl. It didn’t taste like Korean food, but it was delicious. The service was great.
I have been to this Bistro several times and this evening must have been a “one-off” as the service is usually better. Our basket of rolls had tomato sauce on one of them. When we showed it to the server, she removed it, and did not give us new ones. One of us asked for a pizza without pepperoni on it which she said was no problem but it came with pepperoni. Also, our water glasses were not refilled. Disappointing evening for a birthday supper.
Lovely little restaurant. I’ve only been there at lunchtime. Food is well prepared and the service is good. What else could you ask for.
The food was delicious. There was a little delay in taking our orders. And a little noisy because kids were around. Kudos to the chef who gave us Fireball Shots for free due to the noisy background. It was a nice gesture and great customer service move. We’ll come back again.
The service was excellence. The food wad exceptional much better than a steak at the Keg.
Menu has changed unfortunately for two of our guests not for the better
Food ordinary and not worth the price. Perhaps just what I chose as partner enjoyed his plate. Portions and ambiance were good.
Friendly service and generous tasty food. Great for a family meal.
Awesome as always ... Maybe don't invite little kids in for a valentines dinner ....
Very good. Service was great, food excellent. The only thing is the brownie with caramel and salt had way too much salt, it killed the chocolate and caramel taste. The rest was great.
This restaurant is a favorite of ours!! The food is simply outstanding and we love that the chef keeps the menu fresh and trendy. The service is friendly, always with a smile. This time we were there for Valentines Day and the Table d’Hôte was incredible. Salad, steak for me and salmon for my husband, and the desserts....oh boy!! Mouth watering-ly delicious! A big thank you to Chef Kyle and his staff for making our Valentines dinner a special one. We will be back!!
Super Bowl table d'hote was so delicious! To have New England clam chowder here in Montreal is a treat!
The menu is too scattered. No ambiance. Food was ok, but pricey for the quality.
Exceptional food, creative menu and fantastic service.
This was a perfect way to spend the new year. Great choices and the food was absolutely delicious.
Fourth time at this restaurant, excellent experience each time. Love it! This last time especially, our waiter Ian was awesome. Friendly, knowledgeable, funny and very attentive. Highly recommend this restaurant
Such a lovely restaurant with a great variety in the menu. Excellent food, efficient service and very friendly staff. Will definitely go back
Great find in the West Island of Montreal. Will come back and recommend to others.
Food was bland and lacked flavour and creatvity. Something I would make myself on a busy weeknight
Chicken over cooked, shrimp overcooked, too many veggies and presentstion was terrible.
At least the only waitress was great, running around...
Went for a birthday dinner. There was a table setting missing - we had to ask for it. The service was disjointed. The main course was served and the entree dishes had not been removed. We had to ask for more water. I had the Koren rice bowl, the steak was cooked to an inch of its life and there was gristle in most of the pieces. Ugh! This was not a delight at all.
We had a very good lunch,.
Appetizer & main dish @ $14.95
We chose a very good pumpkin soups, we had a Caesar’s salad with smoked salmon & a bbq chicken pizza, one was better than the other. We ended on a sweet note with the carrot square, VG!!
Great place, good service, nice selection of reasonably priced wines.
Always a pleasure to eat there. The food is well presented and excellent. Maybe the menu should be changed according to seasons (only a suggestion).
Excellent choice of dishes. Cajun shrimp pasta is fantastic. Calamari is superb. Nice wine list. Different flavor of Creme Brule every time. Last time was cinamon toast. A must try.
Never fails to please and amaze our taste buds!!! Second time going to celebrate our anniversary and we love the place 💜
Service is outstanding. A favourite restaurant of ours. Meals were all great. The only reason I rated the food a 4 is because the Cajun salmon is not as truly spicy as you would expect from Cajun. But it is still really good , but needs some Cajun kick. Everything else on the menu is perfect.
The Jalapeno Bacon soup was sooo delicious! Just the heat I was looking for! The food was all fresh and tasty!
We have been going since it opened. Very pleased and a reliable place for all ages and events.
The food was delicious, service was great and we really enjoyed our ladies get together!! Portions are really big and well displayed!
Meal was very good as well as the wine selection. However, the waiter was very pushy and we felt rushed. The restaurant was quiet that evening, therefore, didn't appreciate being rushed to order our drinks and meal.
Bistro Merlot is always a winner. This was my third time, and although my food choice (chicken) was not as mouth watering as things I've previously tried, it was still delicious. This restaurant never fails to impress me and the service is incredible. It is a must try for west islanders and is worth the drive if you're not in the area. Get the Bistro Merlot martini too!
J'y ai mangé avant une soirée PaintNite. Je suis ravie d'avoir découvert le resto. J'ai trouvé les prix un peu chers, mais ça ne m'empêcherait pas de revenir. Par contre, si le resto est plein, ça doit être assez bruyant. Des coussinets ou autre chose du genre sur les pattes des chaises aideraient grandement.
Dinner went well enough.
When we were going to order dessert, we were informed that they had ALREADY shut their coffee machine off. IT WAS LIKE 9:00!
I enjoyed my meal as did my husband who wants to come back soon
