The biggest problem was how long it took in between courses. We were given a bunch of amuse bouches at the beginning of the meal, but it took an hour to get our first drink. Our reservation was at 8:30 and the meal finished at 12:50 am. The last glass of wine in the pairing was forgotten. We’ve had other wine food pairings and this just did not seem on point. The wine was definitely and after thought in when it arrived compared to food. Presentation is fantastic. We put it was Anniversary and I was lactose intolerant on the resy and it was not considered.

Good experience with the tasting menu, food was outstanding, very nice service, decor is quite a bit outdated, and the biggest issue was that it took over 3 hours. If you don’t mind the wait, overall experience was still very good. I would recommend them to reduce the number of dishes, as at some point it was just too much. Still overall good experience.

Europea is an experience, but would not go there for food. Lots of things having to do with playing with food -- little pieces of dried meat on clotheslines, goat cheese lollipops. Funny. On the other hand, two of our appetizers were not edible, and had to send $30 dollar glass of wine back because it was too young to drink. The room was a little too quiet -- too easy to hear our fellow diner's conversations.

While plenty of service, there were long periods when we had nothing to eat. This is a logistics problem with kitchen, and style of having postage-stamp presentations.

Would not go back.

The discovery menu was a great value. We enjoyed so many delicious courses and many surprise courses that were not listed on the menu as well. The staff was knowledgeable and recommended the best way to enjoy each course.

The meal started off great. Great service and great presentations and all was served in a timely fashion. However midway through the dinner. The service fell off. It took a long time for main meal and dessert. We booked the reservation mainly for the cotton candy dessert. We watched all the great dessert presentations come out to all the other tables. By the time they got to us they ran out of cotton candy. Extremely disappointed upon that fact as you will have a $300 dinner and then not have it be everything you’d hope. The food quality is great as well as presentation but unfortunately the service toward end of the meal and dessert situation left a sour taste in our mouth.

Best meal I have had in years. Authentic and many local ingredients. Best to get the package that has multiple courses. The staff were great, very knowledgeable and would adapt some of the selections like a cheese selection as desert . Not a place for a quick meal. It is an event and a full evening. Expensive but I thought compared extremely well to other high end restaurants. Fantastic!

We had a limited time in Montreal and wanted to experience the best food the city had to offer. While we would definitely recommend the tasting menu for it's delicious flavors. We found the service below average for such a high end restaurant and the food to be too gimmicky. We went to Toque the night before and preferred the more friendly vibe and genuine plate presentation.

Outstanding. The dinner was a dining experience. Everything from the welcome treats to the smoking box.. a tasty cigar, Bisque cappuccino… WOW.. Everything had a unique and very good taste and presentation was so memorable. Great last night meal in Montreal before we leave for Phoenix.

C'était notre 40ième anniversaire de mariage et nous avons passer une soirée rempli de surprises culinaires et mon épouse qui est une fan finie, était très heureuse d'enfin prendre un très bon repas au restaurant de M. Ferrer. Elle a grandement apprécié le petit mot signé par lui même, qu'il nous a fait parvenir et que le serveur nous a remis entre deux services.
Triste qu'il n'était pas sur place pour qu'elle puisse prendre une photo avec M. Ferrer

Merci encore pour la très agréable soirée

This may have been the most incredible dining experience I have ever had. We are actually considering coming back to Montreal just to take other family members to this restaurant. The food and service were over the top (in a good way). Equal parts theatre and phenomenal food. Be sure to leave plenty of time for the full experience.

Food is OK but I've seen much better. I had a steak Angus AAA and it was not to my expectation. I'm a meat lover and I know that this was not a top quality steak. My wife had veal that was excellent. Presentation is nice and we appreciated. Wine list is complete and for all taste and budgets.

We were somewhat disappointed with this highly touted restaurant. The food was generally pretty good, but the service was weak. It seemed that the servers were working to optimize their own time rather than meet customer needs. Many of the dishes were very imaginative, though some were quite "gimmicky". We both had the lobster appetizer which was excellent. My wife had scallops which she thought were fine and I had Cornish hen which, I think, was a half bird deboned. The problem was that it was narrow in one part and wide on the other. The narrow part was way overdone while the wide part was perfect!

Europa was over the top, with a focus on presentation surprises as well as good food. We had the taster's menu and truly enjoyed the food. The wait staff was charming. I had the lobster and was surprised when they gave me a Europa apron as a parting gift. What fun.

This is without any doubt the most unpleasant and disappointing experience I have ever had in high-class restaurants. My wife and I went there for her birthday hoping for a classic good French cuisine and a nice time. In fact, we spent there 4.5 hours mostly sitting and waiting for flat, flavorless, and by all means boring food. Terribly overpriced, disgusting and chip wine pairing, staff that plays fools and openly bullshits you. We have visited 4 more classic and contemporary French places in Montreal on this trip and they all were much more interesting in terms of food and wine selection. What we spent in usd for that is almost $400 and we are never getting that night back either. I advise staying away from this disgrace unless you need to impress a business partner or client with your checkbook.

Oh and fyi, putting cotton candy balls on a fake plastic tree is not 'pre-desert' it's just childish.

Since I have been there several occasions, I just found they kept the little trick all the way long. I was hoping there are more surprises there to stimulate the coming back for discovery. By all saying, it is a great restaurant to enjoy with your friends or visitors.

We were quite underwhelmed. This restaurant came with high expectations that it failed to meet. The decor was kitsch and the lighting a little enthusiastic. The food was disappointing overall, although the puddings were very good. We had the tasting menu, which including a dish consisting primarily (entirely?) of salad cream and a limp foie gras. Really overpriced wine list too, with the cheapest wine, which was not particularly nice, starting at $55. The service was friendly, but this was not enough to make up for the rest.

Everything was perfect. Our servers, a young man and a young woman, were there for anything we needed. They provided outstanding service and were friendly, yet very professional. The food was fantastic and the meal was full of little surprises and delights. I won't reveal them but we're still talking about them with our friends a week later. Overall, it was one of the best dining experiences we've ever had.

The dining experience at Europea was exceptional. The wait staff were attentive and friendly, eying details and taking care of them (filling water, clearing plates, refreshing drinks). The food was amazing we both got versions of the tasting menu and every course was not only delicious but displayed in a creative and playful manner. There were wonderful little tasting treats all throughout the dining experience that made dinner an adventure in all senses. The flavors of each dish were carefully crafted and blended to ensure your palate was satisfied. We were so very happy with our experience and recommend it to anyone who is looking for artistic and delicious dining event.
