Bistro Merlot Ratings and Reviews
Happy that Bistro Merlot proved that last dining experience there was just a hiccup. We were there for a paint nite and therefore only had time to order mains so I had the Kyle cajun shrimp pasta and DH had the Korean Poke Bowl. Both extremely flavorful. The poke bowl is quite a big serving. Service was very quick and the meal has now erased the memory of a failed fish and chips main that I had there last time. Prior to that all experiences had been positive but that one was a fail.
Great gem in strip mall! Choices from pasta, pizza, seafood, steak, chicken, salads as well as vegetarian . Many styles available -Asian fusion, creole, Italian. Recommend the bacon jalapeño soup with crusted pastry topping-delicious! The lobster Mac n cheese -very flavourful and good size portion for the $$ you pay. Jambalaya with chicken/sausage/shrimp and veggies was spicy and very appetizing! For dessert suggest the toffee brownie with vanilla ice cream -yummy. Great wine list ; by the glass and the bottle) as well as beer and cocktails for the non wine drinkers. Meal -$35 and under for mains; appetizers -$15 and less.
Highly recommend a visit and we will definitely return! Bon appetit!
Our Mother's day dinner was very satisfying.Considering that on days like this there are many groups ,Bistro Merlot delivered fantastic food and fine service. I measure a restaurant in how they perform when they are busy,and the people here came through with flying colours.
We were a group of 6 and all had something different from a very diverse and interesting menu. All six were extremely satisfied with our choices.
I visited at lunch & they have several lunch combo options.
We had the soup of the moment which was a chicken broth with pieces of breast, rice, chick peas & herbs. It was very good.
I had the crispy orange sesame chicken in a soya sauce with rice & assorted veggies it was very good.
My guest had the chicken wrap with fries, they said it was great & the portion was very generous.
We shared the white brownie ice cream with toffee sauce. Highly recommended !!
To bad the coffee/ aren't included in the 2 plate combo @ $16 each.
I love how easy it is to get and park at the restaurant when you walk in the staff makes you feel very welcome. The waitress we had was knowledgeable and could answer all question. Once diner finished we had a wounderfull dessert great coffee. Then we received our bill that I found to be very reasonable for the service and food we had. A great time was had by all that was with me. Thank you. (Our waitress was a young girl called Kelly)
Went on Friday, Jan 7 with 2 other couples. Service was excellent, friendly and attentive. Food was delicious, hot and very tasty. Wait was not long. Restaurant was about half full, which is too bad. People re missing out on a real gem. The other really positive thing is the noise level is low so you can carry on a conversation and hear the rest of your party. We all enjoyed the evening and would highly recommend this restaurant.
This is just a great place to eat on the West Island. There are so many food choices on the menu that making one choice is difficult. I guess that's why I keep going back. Their lunch menu is also terrific and very reasonable. Have and would recommend Bistro Merlot !
What a pleasant find!
A really varied and eclectic menu, bringing Italian, southern and far eastern foods together. I have my meals picked out for many future visits!
Excellent wait staff who are engaging and know their menu and wine list inside out.
This was our first time, but will absolutely not be our last.
This was our first time here and we will be back. Food was fresh and tasty-pizza was good, soup salad and Dumplings very good. Dessert was a decadent blonde brownie. Espresso and Cappuccino were really good - all wonderful ! Recommend - prices also good and fair .
The ambiance and service were excellent. The food which has an Asian influence, was good but skimpy on the meat addditives. Moderately priced. Went for dinner, but will try the luncheon menu soon. Would be an excellent choice of restaurants, had it been bring your own wine.
We've been several times to Bistro Merlot and it never disappoints. The food is always fantastic and the staff are super friendly. The owner/chef even walks around to the different tables to see if everyone is enjoying their meal. Some of our favourite dishes include the lobster mac and cheese, jalapeno soup, blackened salmon, Korean rice bowl and the desserts are divine - toffee brownie, creme brulee, flourless chocolate torte. So good! Highly recommended!
Wonderful filet mignon... yes, rare as requested! Soup... seafood chowder, excellent. Great staff, welcoming, enthusiastic and competent. We never waited, courses were timed perfectly. Friendly Chef Kyle. The staff and chef are wonderfully friendly with returning and new customers.
Thanks for a great dining experience. We will be back.
Restaurant just moved and is now closer to us.
Tried it and found the place much nicer and brighter. Also found food to be only ok - chicken was dry. Service was too expeditious. Waiter seemed to be in a rush to serve and present invoice, although the restaurant was fairly empty.
