Diner Reviews
  • "I'm serious. I've eaten all over the world - US, Mexico, South America, E Europe, Germany, France, Italy, Africa, etc ...and I swear .. this was the best meal I've ever had. This is the first internet review I've written in my life. I told myself I'd never do it (mainly bc I think people only write all good or all bad reviews so they're not accurate) but I can't help it - this meal was that good. My entire group was stunned. It was like a trip - a journey through great food. I won't ruin the surprises but small, extra touches that simply didn't need to be done - were done throughout the night - and done perfectly. This is an event - so plan on a full evening (we were there 4 hrs) but it's well worth it. Get the tasting menu."

  • "We had a really exceptional meal at Europea. We took the tasting menu which was remarkably complex and interesting and a bargain compared to similarly priced ($109CDN) US restaurants in New York/Chicago/SF. Wine pairings were also very good and relatively reasonable. I would highly recommend it to anyone who loves food. Ambiance was nice even if the building itself is a little tired. Service was generally very good, but our server seemed a little rushed."

  • "The staff make you feel welcome from the moment you enter and throughout the evening. This is great on top of the wonderful food. There are surprises and interesting ways to present the food. I loved the many pre-appetizers and pre-desserts. The wine suggested was fantastic. It was a memorable evening."

  • "My girlfriend and I ate at Europea at lunch on February 26. She had the prix fixe menu at $35 in coordination with Montreal's Festival en lumiere and I had the $60 tasting menu with wine pairing. Starting with an interesting amuse bouche, everything served was excellent, including a bit of lobster, some lamb, steak, and a selection of desserts. The wine pairings were a bargain, 4 excellent rich wines for $30. After dessert there were some more treats, which we took in a box. The service was attentive and impeccable. The experience could have not been better - a bargain!"

  • "My husband and I loved the imaginative food and presentations in the 12 course tasting menu we chose. Highlights included the smoked salmon in a box that emitted a puff of smoke when it was opened, "tagliatelle" made of squid served in a hollowed out stone and the sweet tree with pink candy floss flowers and dangling wrapped treats. And the black current macaron was outstanding. The service was friendly, attentive and efficient. We were amazed at the staff's ability to keep straight the service at all the tables with multiple courses. This is definitely a special occasion place - don't plan on hurrying through a meal to get someplace else."

  • "J'y suis allée pour mon anniversaire et ce fût un moment inoubliable: accueil très chaleureux, rien de pompeux ou intimidant, le choix des vins est diversifié et permet d'agréables découvertes et que dire de la nourriture ! On nous a apporté plusieurs mises en bouche toutes savoureuses et fréquemment présentées de façon fort originale. Nous étions cinq et nous avons tous apprécié nos plats. Enfin, le service est très sympathique et empressé. Bref, le restaurant par excellence lorsque l'on veut se gâter !"

  • "More than dinner, Europea is an experience. We have the good fortune of enjoying many Michelin starred restaurants and all I can say is that the Michelin people are missing out by not rating restaurants in Montreal because this would definitely get three stars. The food is not only delicious but fun, creative and inspired. Be prepared for just one surprise after another. Also, the service was impeccable. All in all one of the finest dining experiences I have ever had and one I will always remember. If you are in Montreal this is not to be missed."

  • "My wife and I recent took a trip to Montreal Canada. Open Table helped us find this gem of a restaurant. I wanted our last night to be memorable and Europa made it just that. The entire dining experience was like something out of a movie. They serviced us a seven course mean and ever course was an exciting adventure. From the cigar box filled with cigar like eatable treats to the tiny candle laced trees. This experience we will never forget and will always be high on our list of places to visit when in Montreal. I was also very helpful that they did not make us feel stupid because we could not read anything on the menu. The wait staff was very accommodating to us. Thank you very much."

  • "We loved this restaurant from beginning to end and all the special little surprises in between! I won't say too much here about the extras (I do not want to give away the little secrets ) but they were amazing. We especially loved the sensory experience of the desserts :) my husband had the filet of beef and I had the succulent scallops. The mushroom soup was delicious as was the endive appetizer. This was one of the top dining experiences we have had, we usually read reviews and this lovely spot lived up to the rave reviews. Our waitress was delightful and a bit of an actor herself with her presentation of the special elements if the meal! Cannot wait to return to Montreal and go back to Europea for a fine, fine dining experience!"

  • "From the thank you note from the chef to the multi- tasking staff, everything was of the highest standard and thoughtfulness. The food was wonderful and fun and I believe the service was very personal to each and every customer. This restaurant sets the highest standard for restaurants to model themselves on. Thank you for a very memorable evening."

  • "This was the most multi-sensory and exciting dining experience I've ever had! Perfect for a special occasion...the tasting menu is a must! The food was delicious and the flavours were wonderfully complex! The presentation was full of surprises, and beyond wimsical! The service was spectacular overall, but our waiter Aymeric was exceptional. This restaurant far exceeded my expectations!"

  • "We went here as a group based an a recommendation. So glad we did. I'd recommend going hungry and getting the tasting menu. We unfortunately had had a large afternoon snack and only ordered the 3 course pre-fixe. Everything was amazing. Michael, our server, was so funny and welcoming. The food was so inventive and delicious. There were so many extra tastes and nibbles in between our courses that we were absolutely stuffed when we left. Can't wait to go back and eat there again. To quote my 9 year old daughter "I know it's not real magic, but this place feels like magic!""

  • "This is the 4th or 5th time, we have eaten at this restaurant over the last 5 years, but we had not been there for a couple of years. We had the menu dégustation and as usual it was excellent. Our waiter was great as were all the staff. It was a fitting place to celebrate our son's 21st. Highly recommended."

  • "This is one of the best Restos I have been to. The second best I have been to in Canada (the first being The Rim Rock in Banff). Amazing service, very creative food, fantastic presentation. Overall, a wonderful experience. I highly highly recommend the tasting menu. I am very picky about restaurants and I had nothing to complain about."

  • "I believe the word "fun" has been widely abused but in this case it is uniquely applicable. We had the tasting menu and every plate was a surprise, from prosciutto literally hung like laundry in Umbria, a small salmon canapé emerging from the wood smoke pouring out of the "book" that contained it all, a lovely slice of scallop with a touch of melon presented on a shell as a 'fried egg' and a scrumptious poached quail egg presented as an egg! The main dishes were just as inventive and the desserts I will not spoil with inadequate descriptions. In the midst of this "fun" do not miss the 'yuzu freezing mist'! The setting is delightful and the service agréeable. If you can get a reservation, bon appétit!"

  • "Try to imagine the following: the sheerest tagliatelle mounted like a fountain and it's NOT pasta, it IS squid. Shredded squid: so smooth, so succulent, so delicious you wonder who you might have to kidnap to get the recipe. Ok, a slight exaggeration, squid should not lead to a life of crime but something as good as this dish maybe should be against the law?"

  • "We had VERY high expectations of our first experience at Europea, and every one of our expectations were exceeded. It was truly an outstanding culinary experience; delicious and unexpectedly whimsical presentations. The service was perfect and unpretentious. Thank you, we will most certainly be back!"

  • "It was extremely difficult to enjoy the food as the room temperature was extremely hot and dry. The temperature had to be 80+ in the month of December . We were given a "special" table for 4 in its own room but there was no air vent so even after requesting they turn on the a/c it was ineffective. We all had the 12 course tasting menu for which the presentation was terrific but for the most part the food was just slightly above average . The cost of the meal and wine pairing with tip was just short of $1,000 and by no means was worth it."
