We are so delighted to see the Bistro back better than ever. So pleasantly surprised with the decor change and the upgrading of the menu. Some of the best calamari and salmon tartar.

Lovely place for business lunch. The tomato marinara is the best. The bolognese sauce is also excellent. Crème brûlée the best I've had ever!!

The salmon tartar is amazing, presentation is amazing. Recommend the squid and calamari. Great drinks and always seating available. New decor really sets the mode. Can't wait for the terrasse to open in summer.

We went for brunch on Saturday . There was no brunch menu, but the lunch menu was very good and reasonably priced. Not so the à la carte and the day's specials, which are quite expensive. The service was excellent, the food good. The new decor was stylish and a nice change from the past.

The new Bistro is by far better than the old one. We were regulars of the old Bistro for decades and we'll be regulars of the new one for years to come. We know it's the beginning of a new enterprise and we trust that the food will be to perfection in to time. Congratulations!

I wrote an earlier review on this restaurant, focusing on lunch. We returned for dinner with a friend we'd invited from Vermont. This review is about that evening.

The menu has been revamped, offering a nice choice and variety of seafood, pasta, meats and more. The staff is trying hard to please yet have the experience to pull it off. This place can again...

A terrific find on the Avenue. Settled in on a blustery winter day to a lovely meal. Steak and frites were delicious, moist and generous. Staff were attentive and friendly. Will definitely be back.

Description
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.
