Contemporary Southern
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

It's not my first time at Bistro Nolah but it was my first time having their Sunday brunch, as usual the flavours were unexpected and absolutely delicious. My boyfriend and I said that we need to keep coming back until we've tried everything on their menu!

This time I had the breakfast casserole: I loved the flavour and it was a very hearty meal. However, I would've loved if I could've had the option to have a smaller portion of the casserole as a side with the pancakes or waffles.

My boyfriend had their special, a fried chicken burger with potatoes. I can only assume it was great because it was gone so quickly and my boyfriend, a tough critic, said he loved it.

We also shared the Jack Daniels bread pudding for dessert. It was really good but the Jack Daniels flavour is VERY strong. I would've preferred if it had been more subtle.

We've eaten at NOLAH pretty regularly for the last couple of years and it has never disappointed. Whether we order off the set menu, or get one of the specials, the quality of the food never varies from a very high level and the service is absolutely on-point. A gem!

The food was excellent. I had the ribs and my husband had the shrimp jambalaya. The seasonings were perfect and the portions were good. We received the food quickly. We also really enjoyed the free hush puppy with spicy sauce as well as the homemade biscuits.
I had a drink - Miss Julep - which was flavourful.
Service was prompt and professional.
We enjoyed a wonderful supper and will return soon.

Absolutely delicious! Went for dinner with my husband to celebrate my birthday and it was the perfect choice. Highly recommend the crab cakes, pan seared scallops, duck confit, beignets and the chocolate torte. The service was great and we took our time and were not rushed at all. We will definitely be back!

The food and the service are excellent. The only issue with this restaurant, the 2 times I went, is the noise level. It is very noisy. The people voices and the music compete. I would suggest to lower a bit the music when the restaurant is full or nearly full.

We had a great lunch ! The shrimp bisque soup was delicious.
The main coarse’s were great, the salade with the greatest fried moist tender chicken , the featured blackened salmon was perfection with just the right amount of heat and finally the third dish was an Italian/New Orléans sandwich ‘ muffuletta’with roasted/seasoned young potatoes.
And don’t leave without having the dessert with Jack Daniels sauce ...!

Great dinner.
Always a fun experience. The downside this time was that our server seemed impatient and uninterested. She never came back to check in.
The food sells itself for sure. I recommend this place 100%

to be honest i was expecting a lot tastier food. it was not bad but i was expecting more.
prices are fair.
the service was okay but not the warmest , friendliest staff.
i think the ambience could have been better.
it is a small resto so it felt crammed, and my table was right by the doorway so there was a cold draft.

Overall ok.
I think the food was good but overpriced.
A girlfriend and me went for lunch. The service to receive the full meal was long. Bread (awesome freshly baked) came after I was almost finished with my soup. Go when you have “time” to eat/unwind. My gf and me dis just that somit bothered us less.
Waitresses were pleasant.

Food was much better than I expected as I have been to New Orleans numerous times. The male waiter (I forget his name) was very friendly and knowledgeable. Very happy and plan to go back. Yes it is pricey but worth it.

Service a bit slow once you get seated but the food comes out very quick and delicious every time. Staff is very friendly and the whole place has a very simple homey / feel. Only downside is that it's very noisy in there but the food more then makes up for it.

Food was great, never disappoints! Mixed drinks very good too. Service could have been more attentive, took forever to flag someone down for coffee and dessert. Should focus more on serving clients than setting up for next day.

We just had an amazing creole soul food for our post Valentine's dinner date. Entrees and main dishes were so delish! To be honest, we didn't get the chance to try the desserts because of the generous proportions served. We ordered fried oysters, shrimp gumbo for starters and Salmon creole and blackened catfish as main dishes. It came with sweet potato mousse and freshly baked bread. I believe we paid a reasonably priced meal for two. Highly recommended!

I introduced my friend to Bistro Nolah Friday February 8 for lunch and as always it was delicious.
She had the blackened salmon with jambalaya and I had a crab cake, crispy outside and packed with crab meat inside, with a delicious sauce that took all my will power to not lick the plate. My main was the very authentic shrimp gumbo with okra no less! My friend works at the airport and she said she was going to arrange the next get together with colleagues at BN. Server was knowledgeable about the wine selection and was very friendly.

The venue is clean. The sweet potato soup was nice and hot and delicious, the pan-seared scallops were tasty (could have used a wedge of lemon), and the braised beef is so tender, it melts in your mouth. The service was timely, the staff quite knowledgeable and professional. Will definitely return.

This is a wonderful gem located in a plain strip mall! Noticed it because I stopped in this mall for something else. The food is excellent, ingredients are fresh and it is an original menu for Montreal. It’s worth the drive out to the suburbs and bonus there is plenty of parking!
