    Went to Europea for the first time and had the "degustation", a 12 course sampling. This was a fantastic choice - the variety and creativity in the food was incredible. Everything from the presentation of the food to the service added greatly the overall feeling that this is a new and memorable dining experience. Thank you to Europea for a fantastic evening.

    Went to Europea on recommendations from friends who had been before.My wife and I had done tastings in other fine dining restaurants. And while you never walk away stuffed,the food is usually amazing, and you're definitely content.We did the Chef's tasting (without wine pairing.) It seemed all a little too silly and none of the food was GREAT, just good.After 15 minutes, I don't need a fake book the size of a bible that opens up to smoke (which smelled great) only to look inside and see a bite of food smaller than a Ferrara Rocher chocolate. Only to wait another 15 minutes for the next plate.After 14 courses and a few bites they through in there (which were nice treats) we really weren't blown away OR full. And that's with a few drinks.

    Everything about our dinner at Europea was under-promised and over delivered. The little surprises that kept coming between courses, the amazing food and the constant - without being intrusive - attention from the staff. To illustrate how far they went in customer service, we declined dessert because of time constraint, so they prepared and handed us a box containing a set of "surprises" to take home and did not charge us. I would say their only issue is their prices. But one cannot offer that level of service without a price to match.

    Went there for our 20th anniversary dinner and it was incredible. The food, the presentation, the service, the extra attention to us for our anniversary were all amazing. Each dish was like a work of art. We were wowed by all the mini-surprise courses between dishes that were stunningly creative. My husband thought it was the most memorable meal of his life. We have eaten at Toque, Maison Boulud, Club Chasse et Peche, Hovey Manor but Europea is in a class by itself. I think they should have a Michelin star.

    C'est la cinquième fois que nous allons à ce restaurant. Les mets sont tout simplement délicieux. Cela dit, la description rapide et mécanique dans la présentation des plats choisis et la rapidité du service en général nous donnent l'impression que certains serveurs exécutent une tâche contraignante et routinière. Le plaisir de la table devrait s'accompagner du plaisir à décrire les plats de façon à aiguiser l'appétit des clients. Sinon le service est courtois et froid.

    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.

    A memorable meal that left Toque in a distant second place. The tasting menu was a brilliant merging of traditional and nouveau cuisine with a dessert array that was indescribable; the meringue gift to take home was a fond memory the next day of a truly incredible meal. From the cheese cigar offered in a traditional box, to the wood-chip fumes emitted from another culinary surprise, to the clay-encrusted squab, broken by the patron at the table, the meal was entertaining, humorous and exquisite at the same time. A Chef with immense talent and a sense of humor to match.

    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....

    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.

    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.

    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.
