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

Extremely noisy for Sunday brunch. No thought to acoustics. And Overpriced.

I have one problem with this Bistro.....I don't dine there as often as I should !! My wife and I really enjoy the cuisine here. My starter was the sausage gumbo and the dessert was the bread pudding with bourbon sauce (to die for!!)....and everything in between was just as satisfying. Kudos to the chefs and staff !

Dining a Bistro Nolah is a gastronomic experience. Expect your taste buds to be tingled and look forward to being spoiled by attentive service from knowledgeable wait staff. My wife loves the scallops as they are layered with fantastic flavors and textures. For me, I thoroughly enjoy the Shrimp Creole with Jambalaya. Its my go to dish at Nolah and for the last many years (we've been going there for about 5 years now) and Chef Richard's touch with this dish is never wavering. Same with the scallops. The level of noise due to the small size and high ceiling does not contribute to a romantic time so if you want a quite venue to woo your favorite person go elsewhere. If its great food in authentic New Orleans style and ambiance, then this is the place for you.

Service and food were excellent. When I reserved online, however, I was asked if it was for an occasion and if there were any special instructions. Answered that it was for a bday and to please bring over a piece of cake. Very disappointed when this did not happen at the end
of the meal and the waitress told us she never bothered to read it. She even said happy birthday at both the beginning and end of the meal as it was obvious why we were there.

This is a very nice restaurant which you would expect to be in downtown Montreal but is located in the West Island. The food was delicious and the wait staff were kind and attentive. While this is no fault of the restaurant and perhaps also a general statement on my part, I do find it unfortunate their are some ignorant parents that bring squawking whiny children into a nice restaurant such as Nolah. I am not against well behaved children in a nice restaurant. If your kids are not well behaved, get a baby sitter or go to McDonald's and only come to nice, expensive restaurants when they are behaved. Selfishness seem prevalent these days and inconsideration runs rampant. None of these parents will possibly believe I am referring to them and their kids. After all, they are the best parents in the world and their kids the most precious. The other unfortunate event was, this was for my wife's 60th birthday. I was not at all impressed that after having a relatively costly meal (i.e. $13,00 for a small salad entree) that they couldn't find it in their heart to provide just a small piece of cake to highlight the evening. For me, a small gesture like that goes a long way. Sadly, it is all about the money and that disappoints me. They would rather I buy a dessert. Instead, they actually loose a returning customer. I know there are many other restaurants with similar policies, so I don't want to single out Nolah. But many of the restaurants I do frequent and return often - do provide this simple gesture, they value my returning to their restaurant. Sorry for the rant, but those are two issues I have with any upscale establishment, I do consider Nolah upscale.

The only down side of our dinner was the placement of our table. We were right next to the kitchen and I mean right next to it. It was if the table was placed as an afterthought. it was quite uncomfortable. The service and food were very good.

i always go to nolah with no problems...this time was different. they did not give us our table and said they were keepting for a table of 5....that never happened. they gave us the chef's table near the kitchen door and window, we were hit all the time with the waiters, glasses dropped, etc., and they tried t make it seem like it was our honour to be sitting there. worst table in the house if you ask me. waitress took forever to take our order, people who came in after us got served before us, not cool. must say was very disappointed this time around. only saving grace was your food.

Great service, great staff. We were seated immediately after we came and our waiter was very nice. Food wasn't as good as I remember from the first time I visited. The oysters were bland and we felt it relied a little too much on the sauce. Chicken special was good and sweet but was probably missing something acidic or salty. Shrimp and gritz was good. I would probably come back but not anytime soon.

Food was great as usual, we don’t go very often and I’d say it doesn’t change dramatically but it has always been reliable tasty and that’s why people’s love it. The waitress was both efficient and very sweet.

Very authentic cuisine! with beautiful presentation!......just as we remembered it from our trips to New Orleans!!
The gumbo was delicious and the shrimp jambalaya had just the right amount of smokiness......and be sure to leave room for the amazing bread pudding!!
Thank you for being here so we don't have to travel so far so we can get our "fix" of cajun and relive our fond memories!

Staff is very nice and friendly.Liked the idea of the little tasters they had as a complimentary drink. Food was good and I was sitting beside a blogger where we were able to see different types of food and her opinion for the next visit.

Bistro Nolah has been terrific each time I have eaten there. Lunch, brunch and supper choices are all fantastic and well presented. Service is always excellent. The only negative is the noise level which can be very high if the restaurant is full

The food was very good, but honestly, it was so noisy, we had to speak very loud and we were only 2 people. We were sitting in the middle although other tables were free, and yes I did make a reservation, I asked to be moved and they told me no. So, i would not return unless we are seating somewhere else.

We had a birthday lunch there and it was very nice. Food is really good. The place is small but very well done. They could use a few more vegetarian options on the menu, as its very meat heavy, but the food was really delicious anyway! Waiter was very sweet but rarely there. The main thing we didnt like was that we waited an hour to get any food at all. With kids thats long. They should definitely brush up on the service and check on the tables more. I also didnt get offered to receive the receipt .. thats a first! :)

We had a wonderful dinner, our waiter was very informative and when we asked him for recommendations he gave them. Food was outstanding as always. The only down side was the people around us were talking really loud, because the music was a little loud. (It was good but too loud)

Nolah never disappoints. Lea, our server was excellent as usual. The fried chicken entree was very tasty as was the shrimp taco. My husband loved the shrimp and grits and my daughter her shrimp jambalaya. The ribs were so tender you could cut them with a fork. We had a very enjoyable supper and the bistro was busy on a Wednesday night.

Magnifique cuisine de la Louisiane avec des plats subtilement épicés révélant le caractère affirmé du Sud. Nous avons pu observer les 2 chefs à l'oeuvre. Le dressage est précis, la degustation est un vrai plaisir.
Le service est réalisé par une équipe charmante qui prend le temps de nous faire découvrir les secrets des plats proposés, le plus difficile étant finalement de choisir car on a envie de tout goûter !
