C'est une véritable expérienceC'est une véritable expérience culinaire. Le service est impeccable. On se sent apprécié, on nous gâte du début à la fin.12/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA truly special occasionWe booked a table of four for a 21st birthday dinner. Fabulous evening in an elegant setting. Wonderful food in creative combinations, beautifully prepared and presented; attentive, helpful and professional service; lovely surprises throughout the evening. All in all, a unique and memorable blend of visual art, theatre and gastronomy! I would definitely recommend Europea for a special occasion.9/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSIMPLY THE BEST....Ahem, I have dined in a lot of high end restaurants across North America, so far this is amongst the best, if not the best. Wow , the dining experience is an Art...believe you me I saw a chicken lying in a manger!! Find out for yourself...! Impeccable service, delectable food, palatable wine!! I dont think words would suffice so you may try it for yourself...8/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDinnertainment!The tasting menu provides the most uniquely creative dining experience one could ever imagine.7/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner was filled with suprisesDinner was filled with suprises from the chef. Amazing and superb!7/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI would give it six stars if couldThis restaurant ranks with the best in the world. The chef's "gifts" seem endless and make the experience exciting. It is expensive but greatness comes with a price. Service is as good as it gets and we were made to feel as if we were the only guests that mattered at this busy restaurant. Food is delicious but the portions are small which doesn'tt matter because of all the little gifts.
Highly recommended.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb!This was our favorite meal of our 10 day trip to Montreal. We chose the $69 three course menu and it came with so many amuse bouche surprises throughout the meal that we lost count. They were all very fun and imaginative.
The Lobster cream Cappuccino was wonderful. The pan-seared foie gras, caramelized on a river stone with ice wine was served very cleverly and was very tasty.
My son had the Cornish hen cooked in hay-lined pot and the server brought the pot to the table to look at the hen before it was plated. My husband had the braised veal cheek which he loved and i had the scallops which were also very good. The service was excellent and wine selections perfect. The dessert (breakfast) was very clever.
It was a meal we won't forget!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMEuropea was without a doubtEuropea was without a doubt the best restaurant I have ever been to. From the moment we walked in the experience just seemed to get better and better. I think everyone should do the tasting menu, it was a culinary journey to say the least.
The wait staff was impeccable, although I did feel bad for them, it seems as though they are hovered over a lot by management, which made us feel a bit uncomfortable at times. Aside from that, their knowledge on the food and utter professionalism was great to see.
I can't wait to return to Montreal just so I can visit Europea again!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGotta like the extra effort!Since we were coming off a really disappointing experience at another highly rated Montreal restaurant, we could have been a little jaded, but we were so pleasantly surprised. Here is a restaurant that really seems to care about the experience of their customers. Professional service, impeccable table settings, innovative cuisine and a pile of little extras that really make the customer feel special. If you are a wine lover, make sure to make use of their sommelier Roxon who is a very professional and informed young gentleman. He will steer you in the right direction. You will not be disappointed. No questions, we will return for sure!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday lunch at EuropeaWe tookadear friend here for her birthday. The food was excellent with a gorgeous presentation. The service was impeccable. In fact, 2 friends found the latte not right and it was returned and remade withoutvquestion before we said a word. A special restaurant for any special occasion.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAlmost OutstandingThe food is very good and the service is excellent. Service is leisurely; our meal took 4.5 hours. Part was due to one of the party ordering the menu de degustation, of 15 courses (all small portions but excellent). That said, we were in no hurry. Portions are well presented and flavorful; coupled with the 'amusements' delivered between courses, each of us was full but not stuffed. A cautionary note I have is the fois gras: it seemed to be a piece of goose liver, seared on one side then placed on a hot stone, covered and steamed, and then topped with ice wine. Odd texture. I confess to preferring country pate and terrines, so that may have been the problem for me. Overall, well worth a visit, but make your reservations well in advance.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a unique experience!Be sure to go hungry as the food never stops; each presentation more unique then the next. Definitely a wow experience. The price is high but it really is so unique that it is worth it. We had a great time! Lots of fun.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA unique experienceWent to this restaurant while visiting Montreal. It was one if the most unique and wonderful dining experiences ever.

Outstanding resto. Deserves Michelin Stars.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMUnderstated European eleganceJust sublime food,excellent wine list and very knowledgeable sommelier.
Strongly recommended!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMamazing but...The food is in general very good (some pieces are amazing, some are just good), the service, excellent, and the presentation of all plates is just unbelievable!!!
My only negative point is on the breuvages... goods but expensive, too much expensive, even for that kind of place! 8$ without tips for 1 bottle of mineral water! one once of amaretto sour for 15.50$!!! that's crazy! The wine, I don't even wanna talk about it... But, price was usual for this kind of restaurant.
good experience to live at least once or on a really special occasion. But 600$ for one supper for 2, sorry, it was too expensive for me, even if some moments was amazing... specially when we can find others very good restaurants in Montreal, north and south shores!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMost Amazing Dining Experience EverHad the Menu Degustation (Tasting Menu). Come hungry and allow plenty of time, this whole experience took about 3 hours. Between the menu and amuse bouches throughout courses we had about 23 tastings. I have had tasting menus in the past but nothing has ever come near this experience - this chef is a genius. Each course was presented so fantastically and nothing was what it seemed, every course was described in detail by the Maitre Di and some of the courses were finished off at the table. At $85 dollars this menu is well worth it and I would highly recommend it if you visit this restaurant. In fact everyone that was dining around us were also having the Menu Degustation. Definitely worth a visit when in Montreal.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinition of a dining experienceHigh-end, high-class institution. The details put into every dining aspect is astonishing. If you chose the tasting menu, prepare to book 4 hours! It's just one dish after another. World class. A bit on the expensive side. Prepare to open your wallet!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMNous avons pris le menu dégustationNous avons pris le menu dégustation avec vins accompagnateurs.
Selon nous, il y avait trop d'items dans le menu dégustation; ca devient impossible d'apprécier chaque plat. Tous les plats présentés étaient très amusants. Soirée divertissante!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMUn restaurant festif tel un cadeauJ'ai apprécié le service à la clientèle, du carton de bienvenue à la brioche au départ. Les plats étaient soignés et surprenants. Tous les sens étaient sollicités.2/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was just fantastic andIt was just fantastic and amaging.
