    It got loud at 75% occupancy. Totally recommend to establishment to figure out some kind of noise cancelling as it is a smaller quaint establishment.

    Once again the service and food was of utmost quality. The waiter helped us choose a wine that met everyone’s appeal and complimented everyone’s meal. There Is No other restaurant that compares with the New Orleans food except if you are in New Orleans. Going back next week to try the brunch. Can’t wait!!!

    As usual, Chef Richard Tate has created a menu that excites the senses and tittilates the palate. Brunch is often a bland, uninspired meal experience: Chef Richard turns a classic into a culinary treat! Fried chicken and French toast, candied bacon, avocado & smoked salmon on sourdough with a perfectly poached egg dripping deliciousness all over. Of course, refreshing Mimosa's or Nolah Spritz's accompany each bite, making this a total gastronomic WIN. Thanks, Chef Richard and see you soon!

    Service was impeccable. Food was delicious. We started with the Mac n cheese which was creamy and good size for two to share. My husband loved his shrimp étouffe..especially the grits…and I loved my blackened tuna steak special. The fresh baked rolls are amazing! Food and service get 5 stars for sure. Our only dislike is the crowded and small dining room with micro tables. We were in the middle of the room and were continually bumped by other guests. The waitstaff did a great job promptly removing dishes we no longer needed but the table was very tiny. The small room gets very noisy as well.

    Haven't been for Brunch. So Happy I went in the Second week of relaunch. Had a Wonderful experience at the Bar. The Le Richard and the Praline Bacon was outstanding. Had a Brunch Special- Smoked salmon Benedict on sour dough toast with Avocado and Salmon Caviar. To die for. Also had the French toast. Overloaded with an abundance of decadence, Full flavors of Chef Richard's talent. I would Highly recommend making a trip very soon. I am excited for the terrace to open

    Had a great dinner at Bistro Nolah with my husband ! Our server was super nice and knowledgeable. As appetizers, we took the fried chicken and the hushpuppies. The fried chicken was juicy and crispy, but the sauce was a little too sweet. The hushpuppies were perfect. As a main, we took the shrimp and grits and the lamb shank. The shrimp and grits dish was tasty really enjoyable. The lamb shank was cooked to perfection but overall, the dish needed a lot more seasoning. Overall it was a lovely night and we were served great dishes/drinks.

    Great service, small quaint vibe. Food was good, price was a little high, but justified. If you like seafood, definitely go to Nolah. The only place i know that has seafood that good. Also, they serve catfish. I don't know any other places that do. They do that thing where they have a lot of specials and read them out to you at the beginning. I kind of zone out until i hear something that sticks out. I had the brisket and ceviche. Both were both very yummy. Not overly acidic or fishy for the ceviche, and the brisket was tender and they had good sauces.

    Excellent food and super service, but unreasonable prices for alcoholic drinks and wine. Case in point, $18 for a Martini and $18 for a small glass of wine. I really think they are taking advantage of their customers. $175 CAD for dinner for 2 without appetizers and one cocktail and one beer and glass of wine. Add to that the fact that we are expected to pay the salaries of the restaurant staff (20% tip) and Quebec Canada sales tax (15%)

    We've been to many different restaurants in Montreal but Bistro Nolah takes the cake! By far the most dependable place to spend your evening. No matter when we've visited, the food and the service have always been outstanding. I truly have nothing bad to say and Im a pretty critical person so believe me, Bistro Nolah is the place to go.
