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

Great decor, complete with twinkle lights, and a nice romantic ambiance, delicious food, perfectly curated Southern menu, exceptional service, (it was the first time I actually paid attention when the server explained the menu to us at a restaurant, he made us want to try everything on the menu!), we were even brought a delicious appetizer to try as "compliments of the chef", one of the best experiences I've had at a restaurant in Montreal :)

Haven’t returned in a while so we decided to have brunch. We arrived and were seated immediately. Waitress seemed to be off today not the usual great service... anyways we finally had heard the fail sir ISIS after her 3rd visit to us after bringing us water the first time then coffee the second time then our drink order the 3rd time ugh .... we order the casserole and also the grits with chorizo. Both plates were yummy. Bus boy was very attentive and had brought us our requests ie more coffees and salt/pepper and also hot sauce. As it become more crowded and not much space to walk thru we had waited quite a bit fir water and coffee refills.
Besides these hiccups all was good.

The service was great and the food excellent. The blackened catfish and shrimp with grits was done to perfection. Their fish cakes also fantastic. All their deserts are great. The bourbon bread pudding and beignets are one of my favourites.

If you’re a “foodie” this is one of THE place to try. The flavours in the food dance in your mouth and every bite is so Savory! Really delicious.

Great experience from the start. Excellent cocktails, amuse bouche was great, appetizers sizzling hot, main courses delicious and the beignets, well, they are the best. We joked that we could have started with the beingnettes as our appetizer. Service was impeccable and friendly.

Having moved into the neighborhood in May, we passed in front of Nolah every day and said we should try it sometime. Well, our 26th anniversary came up and we wanted something out of the everyday dining experience, and we most certainly got it at the Bistro. Smooth blues greeted our ears walking in the door, subdued lighting and a cozy little table for two awaited us. I had reserved the table only 30 minutes ahead of time, and had no wait. Some nice red house wine, (I forget the name), swiftly brought by our waitress, nice hot bread buns and a delicious Chipotle-honey butter to start alongside some calamari that were properly fried, and then on to the main courses: Duck Confit for the Mrs, and Braised ribs for myself. All she could do was quiver with enjoyment of the flavour, and as for myself, well, let's just say I love ribs, and the plate left absolutely nothing to be desired. Perfect portions, great sides, and a really nice dining out experience for our celebration. We will be going back, and Yes, I recommend you try it for yourselves.

Food was excellent! I liked the idea that you could order a small portion if you wanted to try something, ie. mac & cheese.

Downside - we found it to be a bit loud and they turned the lights down too low. We had to use the flash light on our cell phone to read the menu as well as the bill. A minor issue- just want it noted.

We will definitely be going back.

Food is great but 1) much too crowded, tables so close together
2) service not good. My brother in law didn’t want salty and the waitress didn’t help him out at all. He ordered a salad only;(
3) glass of wine so expensive!

This was my second time at Nolah. What I did not like is we were told as we sat down that we had to leave in two hours (we had arrived at 6:30 p.m). The service was rushed to the point I had to tell them to slow down. At 8:25 p.m. we were informed that the rush was over and that we could stay longer. We did not. The food was very good, but, the service was too rushed.

We thoroughly enjoyed Bistro Nolah! The waiter and waitress were very attentive, explained all of their meals, appetizers, etc. The food was so tasty and full of flavor! You didn't feel rushed and the ambiance was very warming.

Will definitely go back....maybe try their brunch!

The whole menu looked delicious. Chose the shrimp jambalaya. Perfectly cooked, spicy but not overwhelming. Grits are creamy and flavorful. More frequent water refills would not be unwelcome. Cool background music.

Fantastic New Orleans ambience. The service is prompt and thorough. The restaurant experience is elegant but the dress code is business casual. The food is worth the cost and while the portions don’t appear impressive at first glance, they are filling and generous. The food is melt in your mouth, delicious! The wine is amazing and well paired, coming from a private importation. I would eat at Bistro Nolah every week!

The Shrimp creole was very good, nice size shrimp in a sweet & spicy sauce served with white rice & crisp green beans. The duck leg was crisp & moist served with mashed potato & also green beans. The bread pudding with Jack Daniels syrup was the perfect ending.

Extremely noisy to the point we had to leave right after finishing our meals.
For sure not the best place to celebrate a romantic B-Day nor to go out and talk with your wife after a long & intense week at work.
Food was really good on my wife's end; mine was just ok.
I don't think we'll go back any soon.

This has become our favorite restaurant for special occasions. Again this year we celebrated our anniversary here. The food and ambiance reminds us of being back in New Orleans (which was our favorite vacation). The service is A-1. They know their wines and give an excellent description of the food when explaining the menu. Can't wait to try the Sunday brunch.

We had a lovely evening once again at Nolah. My sister and brother in law drove in from the South Shore for their second supper at Nolah. They both say it is definitely worth the drive. We enjoyed the ribs, shrimps and salmon which was on the blackboard menu. The seasonal salad with apples was very tasty as was the spicy tomato soup. Amélie our server was very attentive and and described the menu in detail. We enjoyed the background music. My sister forgot her umbrella on the back of the chair. They telephoned us when we were on our way home so we were able to come back and get the umbrella. What great customer service!

This was my second visit to the Bistro. First time was for supper and this time for brunch. I enjoyed myself both times. The food is delicious and well presented. I liked the little extra they give you before your meal. Even though we are in close proximity to other diners, it didn't prevent us from enjoying ourselves. Since I visited New Orleans and loved it, I'm glad to find an eatery that has the vibe and atmosphere that I liked. Keep up the good work. We'll be looking forward to sitting outside next summer.
