This was the fourth time I've had Tapas at Bistro Merlot and it does not disappoint ! There are always food I don't usually eat but as they are served in appetizer size portions - it's great to try & I invariably end up acquiring a taste for it. Service is also amazing - they even remember your cocktails. Great... More

We were impressed by the outstanding quality, incredible flavour, and appealing presentation of the food. Absolutely delicious. The service was wonderful as well. We will be returning very soon to...

Friends took me to this wonderful little place close to home. I had passed it several times but from now on it will be one of our first choices. Great menu with something for everyone. The staff treats you like family and gladly make any changes that you ask. We started out with two different starters, the dumplings, and drunken... More

We were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was and how friendly the wait staff was. We received personalized service from our waiter and it was a pleasure to eat here. Not overpriced at all and food was delicious!

We went with a large group for dinner. Everything that came out of the kitchen was so fresh and delicious. The staff were amazing! They handled the large group along with many other tables with little effort and smiles. We had a great time and will definitely be back often.

A small restaurant located in a strip mall on the Northeast corner of St-Charles and Brunswick, it is easy to miss. By chance I saw there sign offering a lunch special and decided to try it. There are a number of fixed price choices for lunch as well as the al la carte menu. They also have a nice selection... More

Ambiance is rather barren and sparse. Menu is terrific. Service is so-so (not very friendly and too few servers on hand). Wine list is good. Sadly, though we had high hopes, the food was only average. The value is great (prices are very appealing), and, by the looks of the menu, the chef has a terrific repertoire, however on the... More

I have eaten at Bistro Merlot several times and each time it was a pleasure from start to finish. The decor and ambiance are wonderful, the food and wine selections are numerous...it is hard to choose! And every time my choice was delicious, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. The service is friendly and quick. Neither myself nor anyone I have... More

Well an amazing surprise. A gathering of family and friends could not have been better at this restaurant. I was so impressed with the menu, the execution of the food and portion sizes were perfect. Every meal that arrived for adults and kids brought rave reviews from the crowd. All plates left empty! The only reason not to give this... More
