Everything was wonderful except the temperature! I kept my coat on for most of the dinner. To be honest, it was one of the coldest days of the winter. Even though the restaurant was chilly the food was nice and hot (temperature and spice)!

Amazing food! This was tue first time I tried the new brunch menu and it did not disappoint! The espresso martini was also great! I love this place - it’s worth the drive to the West Island and on the plus side there is parking!

Their Fried Chicken appetizer is delicious. It can also be ordered off menu as a main. I had the shrimp creole with jambalaya and it was very tasty and spicy. Like nose-run spicy...but very good. No room for dessert.

Another great supper at Bistro Nolah’s!
We had chosen fried chicken as an entree for each of us 3 then the other 2 choses PEI shucked oysters on half shell; mains were 4 of the shrimp jambalaya and the other one chose lamp shank and grits . Fried chicken was one of the best! Deep fried crispy with spicy honey drizzled on 3 pieces ; oysters were delicious . Shrimp jambalaya was spicy and yummy ! Shrimps were plenty and nice size too ! Very filling portion ! Lamb shank with grits was devoured with great enthousiasme. Best grits ever - nice Nd buttery yum yum !
We couldn’t say no to homemade desserts - 4 of us chose the bread pudding with jack Daniels sauce ; other chose chocolate torte . Best desserts ever! Best bread pudding with delicious Jack Daniels butter sauce 😍💔! Overall another great meal and definitely return . Bon appétit!

We had a wonderful brunch on Sunday, there was no place to reserve before 2:00 p.m., but it was worth the wait! Everything was delicious, we enjoyed every bite!

Portions were really big. For 5 full meals, the value is good but a bit pricey. If you want to try something different than the usual basic breakfast places(ie Cora), then you should try Bistro Nolah. My only complaint is that I didn't understand why salsa was added to a few dishes when it wasn't listed in the menu.

Service was a bit slow for our liking. Noise level was high. We had to raise our voices to hear each other. Music was unnecessary since we could barely hear it above the noise level. Our table was right beside the kitchen and we kind of felt squeezed in. However, the food was excellent, well presented and very tasty. Due to the cost, we cannot frequent Bistro Nolah to often but it is a real treat when we do choose to go. For special occasions only.

Nice little place which is very busy. We had a reservation at 18h15 for a party of 4. Everything started well, food was excellent, service was very good. We ordered a second bottle of wine and at 20h, our table was requested. The bottle of wine was haft full and we did not have a chance to order a desert. We were kicked out of the table and transferred to the uncomfortable little bar. Did not offer anything to compensate. When you go to that kind of restaurant and spend big $ for bottles of wine...You want to enjoy and to be rushed.

This was a surprising experience; Bistro Nolah has been a favourite for a while. We were sat 35 minutes late, with no recognition of our arrival. We chose to stand outside to wait. We sat with no apology, or welcome to the restaurant. On the contrary, our water was poured almost angrily. Since I set up the dinner, I was embarrassed. Our server did not welcome us, and was speaking too quietly so we stopped asking questions. We asked for the music to be turned down, but it was turned up again; so it was too loud. The food was good, but not relative to the price. I have recommended many friends to Nolah, I’m not sure I can now.

Bistro Nolah is our favourite restaurant hands down! We had a 4 course dinner to ring in 2020 and it did not disappoint. The fried chicken was excellent, delicious and nicely seasoned. The Shrimp and Grits was fantastic. Our server is a true professional who guided us through the menu with ease. Bistro Nolah has a great chalkboard menu which is constantly changing. It is the perfect spot for a romantic dinner with a loved one.

We feel fortunate to have such a great restaurant right in our neighbourhood! Each morsel of our supper was perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious. Our only complaint would be that our reservation was for 8 o'clock and we didn't get any food until 9. By then we were famished. We cleaned our plates, not a bite left!

The service and the food is always excellent, and I've never been disappointed. For the three of us, we started off with the fried oysters and the Louisiana crab cakes. We all wished those could refilled. For our main course, we had the fried chicken (always delectable), shrimps and grits (a personal favorite), and the filet mignon which was one of two special of the night. Everything was cooked to absolute perfection. If we weren't in public, we would have tried to lick our plates clean!

An excellent dinner, wow! It was the first time dining at Bistro Nolah for the four of us. It won’t be the last they’ve made a us repeat customers. Delicious food, great service, lovely ambiance & great value. We tried their fried chicken appetizers & Louisiana crab cakes. For our main we tried the jambalaya & veal cheeks, very well spiced.
Often times a chef owned restaurant is a very good place, this one is no exception. No surprise they’ve been serving customers for approximately 8 years?

Highly recommend this lovely bistro on the West Island. Reservations are probably necessary, we went on a Tuesday night & they were full. You can book on Open Table or by calling them directly.

This restaurant is always amazing!!
There was a really loud group while we were there and because it’s a small place it was a bit overpowering, but that’s not the restaurant’s fault.
Overall it was a perfect and delicious birthday dinner. The shrimp and grits were incredible!

Ambiance agréable et service courtois et attentionné. En entrée, le potage de lentille était succulent. En plat principal, la salade du midi avec trois morceaux de poulet croustillants cuits au beurre était délicieuse. Le poulet était vraiment délicieux. Mon épouse a mangé les crevettes créoles et a beaucoup apprécié son repas.

Good food. Zero ambiance...just too crowded. Tables placed in traffic areas, near bathrooms.
