Any lovers of fine, french cuisine will find something for them at Merlot Restaurant in the Kingsway! Since opening its doors in 1998, Chef Alain Rechter and his hard-working and professional team has made Merlot the successful restaurant that it strives to be. Merlot Restaurant offers traditional French bistro cuisine, with a menu that stretches from dishes typical of south-western France such as duck confit or cassoulet, to those of northern France including paté de campagne and escalope de veau au calvados.
The interior of Merlot restaurant is reminiscent of an upscale bistro that you would walk into anywhere in France; with a warm decor and friendly staff, you’ll want to come back time after time! During the summer months, you can enjoy a beautiful raised 60-seat patio to enjoy your meal in the outdoors overlooking the scenic Kingsway neighborhood that Merlot restaurant calls home.
As you may expect from a restaurant named “Merlot” they boast a wonderful wine list to pair with your meal, ask their friendly and knowledgeable staff for their pairing recommendations to make your dining experience exceptional. Our favourite is the “Classic Steak & Frites” paired with their namesake Merlot, right from France. But don’t just take our word for it, Merlot is open for Dine-in and Patio options and are happy to be serving a one-of-a-kind dining experience to the Kingsway community once again.
For dessert, Merlot offers a decadent mousse au chocolat, a rich creme caramel baked with Grand Marnier, or a fragrant and delicious lemon tart. All of which are perfect choices to finish off the perfect meal! Are you dining with a group? Order them all, you can never have too much dessert!
We can’t wait to visit in person again soon, as the dining room has an amazing ambiance and the service is always top notch. Merlot restaurant makes for a perfect romantic date night location or a family-friendly location to enjoy a fine-dining experience with your family and friends. Stop by soon!
