You know when you are in China and you order chicken? It can be the head, the feet, the skin and definitely lots of bones? That was my meal at Bistro on the Avenue. The service was wonderful and they happily took away my plate...More

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

Had the octopus fettuccine and the soup du jour. They were both excellent with a very tender octopus and timely service. Also had the merlot which was delicious. Will be going again.

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.

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.
