Try to like this place but still not good. Hamburger tastes like non meat. Would like to enjoy this place but it is still not up to a Westmount standard. Needs lots of work.

I went for lunch and was astonished by the quality of this soup. They now have a young innovative chef, and it's well worth trying him.

This large, inviting space should be a reliable local bistro --especially since it's become quite pricey. But the service is erratic and slow and the food not quite as good as it should be.More

Opened in 1991, the Bistro On The Avenue has become a favorite of "des bons vivants" from near and far. Charged with the energy of a New York eatery, it serves up the charm of a Paris Bistro spiced up with a zest for life. A rarity in Westmount, the Bistro is open daily for both lunch and dinner. Reservations are recommended.
