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

Also Cajun Caesar salads -but if heat with pancetta abs homemade croutons -delicious! Dessert-their famous Bread pudding!! Simply amazing-no leftovers lol.

We had one of the specials of the day which was fried chicken which was delicious, but was served on a salad which was over dressed and limp and that was it! We also had the shrimp gumbo, the shrimp were good, nice spice, but the tomatoes very disappointing and let the meal down, they appeared canned and two still had the core. We mentioned it to the waitress who had been very attentive but that was as far as it went. We finished with the bread pudding - served with a sparkler as it was my birthday - amazing! we thought that might have been complimentary - no. When we look back and considered we had spent over $130.00 we were sadly disappointed.

There are so few places in Greater Montreal where you can experience good Cajun cuisine, which makes Bistro Nolah very special indeed. The daily special appetizer was mussels in s bourbon cream sauce that was so good we asked for extra rolls to sop up the sauce. The Caesar salad had a surprising and welcome kick to it. The shrimp and grits (especially the grits) were most enjoyable and the blackened catfish was great. Service was pleasant and efficient. The only downside is that the place is very noisy, but that shouldn’t stop you from going unless you are particularly sensitive.

This was our 2nd visit to Bistro Nolah. The cuisine is gourmet-like with pleasing plating. We ordered mostly seafood and were not disappointed. Our ultimate favourite was the grits... creamy, buttery, delicious. Service was attentive but allowed us to enjoy an unrushed birthday supper. Would highly recommend!

Food was outstanding! Lobster ravioli with shrimp, mussels and cream sauce was phenomenal. Also octopus on bed of black rice was excellent. Cocktails to start were very good. Not cheap, but a very nice meal, good ambiance, a bit loud (just like New Orleans!)

I enjoy treating myself to a quiet single lunch at Bistro Nolah, it's comfortable, quiet & the food is always superb. The crab cakes, one of my favourites, were so very tasty, there is something about that sauce which makes you come back for more. As main course this time, I decided on a salad served with fried chicken breast, suggested by my server. I was again, pleasantly surprised at how it all meshed well together. The salad was a fresh mix of swiss chard, different lettuce, kale with slices of apples, walnuts & I'm sure that I'm forgetting items, served with three small fried chicken breast. I didn't need dessert after that terrific meal for which my taste buds are still thanking me! The service, well-timed & pleasant, was excellent, discreet & professional. I also enjoy having dinner with friends at Bistro Nolah which definitely is my favourite restaurant in the West Island.

Absolutely loved the food. Had the Shrimp Creole Jambalaya. Rarely eat dessert, but had the bread pudding as well. Has not become my all time favorite place to eat and so happy it is located within the neighborhood. Highly recommend this place.

Went to Nolah for a date. Pretty small restaurant, but it makes for a very cozy and romantic scene. At night, the lighting is romantically dark, with candles and warm wooden decor. Service was great, as the waitress that we had was very nice and made great recommendations about the menu and about the specials that they had. As for food, it was absolutely spectacular. It had a simple and concise menu which consisted of classic creole and cajun food. The seafood was on point and they have really good specials that change weekly. Overall, it's a small cozy place to eat that has good food and service all while being fairly casual.

A really great Gem of a place hidden away in the West Island. If this Restaurant was in the Plateau, it would get more respect but the food was great and the services and price were totally fair. If I had to make one suggestions, I would say the restaurant manager needs to turn the lights up 10%... was pretty dark, to the point at time it was hard to see what I was eating. But everything i put in my mouth was stellar!

Been awhile since we returned to have brunch here but it was worth the wait👍👍. We started with a dark and stormy alcoholic drink -very tasty but could have used more ginger. I took the Le Jose special of day -I x catfish taco; their potatoes; and fried chicken piece on challah bread French toast. Delicious and filling . My friend took the Benedictine special -smoke salmon eggs Benedict. Was also yummy I was told ( as I don’t like salmon so didn’t try). Coffee delicious as always. Service impeccable and always around for refills on coffee and water without having to ask! Recommend Nolah’s !!! Bon appetit!

Evening marred by an unpleasant maître d. Despite the restaurant being practically empty we were given the choice of exactly one table. So much for accommodating a client! And we were reminded at least twice while being seated that we had no more than two hours during which to enjoy our meal, as the restaurant was flipping the table. Talk about treating your clients like cattle. The food was good, if a bit over the top in spice. But the elephant in the room is the poor service. A bit of success seems to have gone to their heads.
