    Bistro Nolah never disappoints! We were there Friday, Sept. 23rd for dinner with friends and we couldn't have been happier with the food, the service, really all the care that was put into the entire dining experience. We can't wait for our next visit.

    As usual the food was excellent and the service was great. It took longer than we remembered to receive our meals but we are quite conscious of the lack of workers and the two servers did an amazing job of serving us. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    My brother, aunt and I all enjoyed everything we ate, and we ate a lot! It is definitely worth the trek from the Plateau or downtown Montreal (by public transport)! It will definitely be a must when I return home to Montreal in December for the holidays. Many thanks, S

    Everything we ordered was delicious - gumbo, shrimp creole, grits. Served hot. The mud pie is to die for as well as the hush puppies. Server was attentive. Never felt rushed. It was quite loud inside but the patio was better.

    37th wedding anniversary. Used to go there almost monthly, but stopped when they started requiring $55/pp reservation confirmation. Wife liked it so went back after all for anniversary. Request terrace in reservation. Arrived was shown to noisy table next to washroom and told can’t reserve terrace. Saw there were several empty tables there, so after back/forth with manager we were relocated. Nice, outside. Ordered meal and manager said we have to move…they’re closing the section, even though 4 other tables were eating there. Relocated us again to a stuffy ‘outdoor’ section completely enclosed in plastic sheeting. It was about 37c and stuffy with other tables very close by. Coughing etc. Asked to move back to other section where we were seated but told no. Bottom line, food ok, but NEVER going back, even though we were regulars. Better options instead

    Big birthday celebration for my neighbor..... We made reservations for dinner for 4 at Bistro Nolah 3669 Boul. Saint-Jean, Dollard-des-Ormeaux, QC H9G 1X2 In Blue Haven Shopping Village With Icy Vibes And 3 Soeurs They are open 5 pm until 9 pm Wed--Saturday Closed Sun, Mon, Tues They specialize in NEW ORLEANS Southern dishes such as jambalaya, crab cakes, shrimp and grits, Mac and cheese & gumbo .... Dining with soft Jazz music playing in the background is delightful It is an intimate restaurant where guests can actually converse and hear each other quite comfortably.... You can look up and watch the chef in action close by... Reservations are reccomended as there is limited seating in this cozy, local establishment.... Several shrimp dishes were on the menu as well as lamb shank, blackened catfish, and grilled octopus.... The menu items can change according to the chefs ingredients.... He is a master! I ordered my Cesar And my friends ordered white wine and 🍸 cocktails as well.... Spicy, yummy, hit the spot.... Hot homemade buns came to the table with bowls of whipped sweet pimento butter.... Ahhhh settle in and sit a spell.... Fixin to enjoy some good eats right here.... 1 person at our table ordered the blackened catfish with mashed sweet potatoes and the rest of us ordered the shrimp creole and jambalaya.... Spicy oh yes! But a bit of sweetness also in the sauce.. Lots of flavour in this comfort food... Took me right to the vibe of Bourbon Street and Preservation Hall....ahhh I digress....🎼🎵🎹🎷🎶 The jambalaya was a mixture of creole rice with vegetables such as carrots, green beans, peppers, onions, and slices of Andouille sausage A perfect accompaniment to the 6 large and meaty shrimp in creole sauce...🦐 Bold and zesty Cajun dining....but save room for dessert!!! We shared divine bread pudding with a Bourbon sauce....lick the plate clean and make sure someone else is driving.... We also shared A banana cheesecake.... Divine....

    Beautiful restaurant delicious food but the music on the terrace sounded like it was coming from a tin box. Music did not suit the atmosphere at all. Had to ask 3 times to lower the music but it really did put a damper on our meal. Fir this type of restaurant you should have quiet jazz music playing in the background

    The butter portion is ridiculous. They charge extra if you want more. Long wait time to get served. Entree 25$ for two crab cakes, the main course was 29$ for double the quantity of food. Waitress memorizes and tells us all the special items of the nights (5-6 choices) making it hard to remember everything she said. Why not have a board of print out for clients to read? It was so loud I could barely hear her. Maybe revise the prices or portion of entrees? Food was excellent, it was our 3rd time there but honestly cannot say we will return just because of all the little things mentionned.
