Description: The vision of Jon Beckel, Le Bistro Montage's founder, was to have a place where everyone could enjoy themselves and have a great meal. He hit the mark with Le Bistro Montage. Founded in 1992 in a converted taco stand, it soon moved to it's present location at 301 SE Morrison. On a shoestring budget, Jon and staff created a one of a kind place where, when you step in the door, you're not quite sure where you are. Its quirky decor, including huge paintings, a poster pulled off the Berlin Wall, decadent fresh flowers, tin cans pounded into the floor, and long, linen-covered tables, Creates an atmosphere that draws all types and guarantees a great time.

“Le Bistro Montage”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Went for dinner on Saturday. Because of this, arrived at 5:15 and were the first in line. They opened promptly at 6, and we were seated immediately. We started the meal with the mussel and oyster shooters-delicious! I ordered the house special linguini, and my husband had the jambalaya with shrimp and andouille. Both were delicious, spicy but not overpowering. Huge portions! Water was always filled but the waiter was a bit absent.

“Food Good, Attitude Crap”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

We were trying to kill some time before a late night flight and we stopped here for dinner, drinks and Yahtzee. Thank God for the games and half price bottles of wine, because the bartender in the lounge was miserable and ultimately awkward to sit near at the bar. We moved ourselves to a table until we decided to wrap up and move to the dining room. We ordered the craw fish hush puppies (amazing) and two different types of mac and cheese, both were good. I would absolutely return to the dining side.

“Everything I tried was delicious”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Had dinner here at the recommendation of a local and loved every bite. I ordered the gumbo with Andouille sausage and practically licked the bowl clean. When a friend couldn't finish her mac and cheese, I offered to slurp the rest of it up. Another friend couldn't finish her linguini and I practically inhaled it. The were both delicious. I have heard that the later it gets, the rowdier the customers and the poorer the food quality, so I advise arriving for dinner no later than 8 PM.
