    Every time we go we love to try a new appetizer and a new main. But it is hard to resist the fried chicken and grits. If you haven’t dined here you are missing out. The food is amazing, the service is friendly and professional and the atmosphere is fun.

    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.

    It's 5 yrs since I've been to the resto. Hush puppies not as fluffy as I remember but still good. Tuna was slightly overcooked. Beignets were so-so. Cathy, our server, was very attentive and accommodating.

    I ordered the blackened catfish and it was delicious. Service was also excellent we had a great waiter. Cute little spot perfect intimate size. Nice bar. Its a little on the pricey side but well worth the quality of what you are getting. I need to go back and try the fried chicken and the hush puppies

    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.

    Another incredible culinary journey was had on the 2nd night of Nolah's St-Valentines menu. The welcome by our server Chris, the menu choices and prime bar seating (our choice...best seats in the house!) were spot-on, and after making our choices and ordering cocktails, we sat back to watch the maestro Chef Richard Taitt run the pass, making sure that every plate that left was exactly the way he envisioned them being. Within a few minutes, we were served warm bread with herb butter and complimentary hush puppies, to open the palate. Apart from the V-Day menu, they were also featuring oysters done 2-ways: classic on the half-shell and a baked version. We tried them both, despite typically staying away from cooked oysters, simply because Chef Richard came over, smiled, and insisted. Thank goodness he did, as they were fantastic, using a recipe he discovered from his last visit to New Orleans. The rest of the night progressed as it always did with a steady stream of mouthwatering dishes flowing from the kitchen to our bellies...salmon ceviche & Bao buns, Cajun shrimp & pan-seared tuna, chocolate torte and chocolate "pots de creme", and excellent wine selections paired with the food. The best part of the somewhat late evening was when Chef came over as we were leaving and we fell into a spirited 20 minute discussion about travel, specifically Spain. We pray that he gets the chance to go and spend 10 days cruising through the north of Spain & the Basque region, experiencing the people and food that are engraved in our heart, and tastebud memories. Thank you, Nolah...we'll see you soon (beef cheeks next week? YES PLEASE!)

    We brought friends for their first time last night. They loved it. So many appetizers and a main dish did not leave room for dessert which is too bad as the desserts are amazing! Next time they will pace themselves. But how can you not be interested in trying it all at this amazing restaurant. If you haven’t eaten at Bistro Nolah you are truly missing out on the best New Orleans restaurant outside of the south.

    What an experience! It was our first time. The waiter was so kind and had great suggestions from special drinks, to meals and deserts. It really was part of the success of our evening. The food was so tasty and FRESH. You can tell they only use high quality ingredients. Great date night out place or with friends. Just go! Try to reserve in advance because it was pretty full.

    My only complaint is that I was told that the dessert I wanted took 15 minutes to make and We had a time limit with our table and only had 20 minutes left. Really didn’t appreciate being rushed when spending over $760 for 6 people. Up until that moment everyone intended on going back but now I’m not so sure.

    The food was superb. We selected from the daily specials and the regular menu to get a broad cross section. The short ribs were delicious and tender enough to eat with a fork. The sausage gumbo was so good, I should have bought more to take home. This restaurant is not cheap, but it's a wonderful treat for date night.
