Diner Reviews
  • "This was our 5th visit to Europea - a must do whenever we visit Montreal. The menu is updated periodically - currently featuring seafood - with new surprises in the presentation. We always order the "3-course" Discovery menu. Don't let the name fool you - you will probably end up sampling surprises and extras totaling about 16 items. Allow a minimum of 2 hours for dinner - more if you order the larger menu and wine pairings."

  • "Simply the best experience in Montreal. This was our second time and i would of simply wish that they would have changed some of their complementary hors d'oeuvre to keep the magic alive"

  • "I was not very impressed. The entrees were mediocre at best. When you factor in the excessive price, this place is way overrated. They attempt to wow you with some cheesy presentations, but they failed to mask the fact that the centerpiece of the meal was not great. We visited at least three other restaurants in Montreal with better food for a third of the price. Something doesn't add up...."

  • "We spent a nice time full of delicious surprises , with an excellent and warm service and principally the taste and creativity of a unique chef . You must say hello to Jean Tauhiro the restaurant manager , he really knows his job ! You can not miss in your next visit to Montreal this welcoming, and Cozy place. And before you leave a visit to the kitchen !!"

  • "The food was fabulous, the presentation superb. The service was impeccable. But the little unexpected treats between courses were delicious and presented with flare, and truly made the whole experience very special! Worth every penny!"

  • "Everything was outstanding except for the food which was just good to very good. We have eaten there several previous times and this time the food did not "wow". We had the menu de degustation and I felt that the food was overworked and at times lacked seasoning. A lot of effort was spent on exceptional presentation and theatricality which was most appreciated but the food was not exceptional. I would recommend the restaurant but with some reservation."

  • "My wife and I enjoy fine dining, great food and good wine. Over the years we have enjoyed many wonderful meals at numerous fine restaurants. Our recent meal at Europea was one of the best we have had and almost certainly the most fun. Everything was on target. The wait staff was outstanding. The food was excellent. One of the features we most enjoyed was the multiple little culinary surprises presented throughout the meal including a faux sunny side up egg created with a thinly sliced sea scallop. Save room for desert. Europea is delightful."

  • "We visited Europea to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. The food, the service, the little surprise presentations of food tastes, were wonderful. It was truly a never to forget experience."

  • "Firstly, do not go there if you are not prepared to pay a premium for your dining experience. That said, the experience is fabulous! The food, presentation and preparation are brilliant, but the service is not stuffy, and refreshingly friendly."

  • "Very good. Would recommend to those not concerned about price. Would also suggest going a la carte or lower tier tasting over top tier tasting. The view of the kitchen was worth asking for (table 101 is better than the counter under the stairs) and the chef does run a good show and his able crew were quite happy and supportive. In my book he gets as much credit for building the team as he does designing the food."

  • "C'était ma 2e fois chez Europea et j'ai aimé. La 1ère fois c'était un souper et, là, c'était un dîner. Comme au souper il y a 4 ans, le service était excellent, le menu était délicieux, l'ambiance est relaxe... Par contre, le sommelier ne nous a pas avisé du vin qu'il choisissait (on lui avait dit de choisir un vin en accord avec notre repas) ni de son prix. Surprise! On a eu des verres de vin à plus de 25$. Quand je suis arrivée, on m'a désigné une table, puis on m'a déplacée plus à l'écart. Ça ne m'aurait pas dérangée si ça n'avait pas été plus froid, juste dessous un "air vent" ce qui a réduit mon confort."

  • "but without the pomp. We had a lovely anniversary dinner at Europea. The rooms are beautiful and not too big. The servers are all very professional, but also down to earth and helpful and the food is divine."

  • "We had made reservations months in advance, as this was rated so highly. Upon being seated, we became aware quickly of a screaming child at the next table. We asked the hostess if we could have another table and she informed us none was available. At that point, we decided it was better to leave than spend what was supposed to be a romantic, seven course dinner with children screaming. To the restaurant's credit, they did find another table upstairs and we enjoyed a whimsical approach to fine dining. The 50 minute wait for the check was a sad ending to the evening. With there being so many fine restaurants in Montreal, we will wait several years to go back."

  • "Both the quantity and quality of the food surprised us, and of course the service was great. Each dish was well explained by our waiter, he also suggested great wine that went well with our selection of food. Food was amazing, especially for the foie gras (must try!). For us, desserts were a bit too sweet, but they have cotton candy! We didn't expect to be so full after the meal. Overall great experience, and I'm glad to dine here before leaving Montreal."

  • "Rated number 2 restaurant in Montreal at the time of reservation, we were really looking forward to that dinner and we were not disapointed! From the time you seat until you leave, you will be served the most finest food as described in the menu and with a lot of additional surprises to taste. Service was perfect! Pricy but worth every cent!"

  • "The difference between a good dinner n a great one is the celebratory experience it intends to generate!! one that u remember long after the details of the meal are gone!! Europea's degustation menu is an innovative, visual, gustatory, and olfactory experience--one that must not be missed!! Wait and book ahead of time, for that occasion or with that special person or group you wish to dine! it also includes a vegetarian option for the health conscious! thank you!! Inexpensive for the amount of effort that goes into making each course special! "

  • "Europea met and then surpassed all of our expectations- from the impeccable, warm and attentive service to the interesting, varied and delicious food. We both had the tasting menu, with my husband's tailored to exclude foods that he does not eat. We ate for 3 hours and left happy, carrying our complementary meringue and leftover dessert goodies. Can't wait to return to Montreal so we can eat there again! "

  • "It is not a place where you would bring children, but as I was taking my own mother, and father, out for a very special evening, I told my sons they would be very priviledge to experience such an evening... and they did so well! An impeccable and friendly service, la mise en scène of every dish, the numerous mise en bouches, so much to eat to keep us all busy and on our toes, waiting for the next surprise... We all thought we could not eat for the next week (be aware) but had so many good moments to remember. "

  • "We were there for mothers day and what a gem. Was almost like taking a vacation to Europe. Although it was a pre-set menu it was so diverse and fun. Truffle balls on pops, truffle popcorn, seared scallops and braised veal cheek. Amazing. The service was fast and polite and they added some fun to the presentation including a bowl of steaming dried ice to create effect. There was a cotton candy tree with little wrapped cookies and chocolates. Cotton candy in French is called barbe de papa, or daddy's beard. We slapped on a beard and had a feast. We had a great memory."

  • "Food is amazing. One of the best dinners I've ever have. Before main dish, they offer 6 or 7 different "surprises" in a very creative way. Sugar based dessert is also very creative. Very good cellar. The ambience is good, if they could improve it a little bit, they should deserve a Michelin star"

  • "Second visit to Europea, both excellent. Very inventive and interesting cuisine. Everyone enjoyed their meal , and the arrival of many palate cleansers and amuse bouche made the whole evening an event as well as one of the best restuarant meals we have ever had. Service was top notch and very professional with the right balance of still being a fun evening for everyone."

  • "A well presented - with many surprises off menu - meal. Maybe a little unbalanced with on one meat item on the tasting menu. We had the matched wine with the meal, but the sommelier only described the wine to us without matching it to any special course or item. Had much better experiences elsewhere. But came away every satisfied and really enjoyed the special occasion."

  • "This restaurant is one of the best dining experiences we've add. The food is delicious and all the little "add-ons" made the experience enjoyable and a meal we will talk about for a long time. The attention to detail is like no other restaurant we have been to in the recent past. We will certainly go back the next time we travel to Montreal. Highly recommended if you are looking for a restaurant that is different then the norm, one with fine dining and great service! "
