Une expérience à vivre! Vous apprécierez d'avoir votre vision après cela. En plus, la cuisine est excellente. Si vous mangez de tout, faites le test de prendre au moins l'entrée surprise... Ca va mettre vos papilles gustatives au défi.

Rodrigo notre serveur était excellent! Un des meilleurs service de notre vie, il etait présent, drôle et extrêmement gentil. Le restaurant a un concept hyper cool et la nourriture est excellente. Le seul bémol c’est qu’on s’entend pas très bien puisque c’est bruyant et un client a gâcher notre fun avec son téléphone cellulaire qui a allumé !

Really good restaurant with a unique experience. It is disorienting at the begging, when your sight is no longer usable. But it makes you focus in different things, use your other senses, and taste the food. At the opposite of the current vibe, with meal pictures all over the social media, O Noir takes you where you've never been before. And to add more fun, you can also not know what you'll eat (surprise meal).
I strongly recommand this restaurant if you want to try something new. The food is excellent and the waiters are lovely.
It is a bit pricey but for a special occasion or date it is a good trade-off.

I had such a good time. The food was okay, seemed to be small portions, and my creme brulee was cold which I don't really enjoy it. We were told that all the food comes as is, so that means that they may not be cooking it fresh in the kitchen.
My biggest disappointment was that I knew they were going to have a live band of blind musicians playing music (Sunday nights only) but there wasn't and it was why we went on Sunday night.
I think everyone should try this out once in their life. Our waiter Tim was outstanding!

You have to try this restaurant! Eating in the pitch black is such a wonderful sensory experience (there is literally no light - even my husband's glow-in-the-dark watch face had to go in his pocket). I wouldn't recommend going with a large group, because conversation would be difficult when you can't see each other. A group of 2-4 is ideal. We both ordered the "surprise" appetizer and main course, and were very happy with the food. Deliciously prepared, and enough different tastes and textures that we couldn't always guess exactly what we were eating. It was really interesting to be told at the end what we had had!

I wanted to try one of the ONoir for a longtime. You can't describe the experience but I can tell you that you have to experience it once. Let's not fool ourselves, it's a not cheap, 150 for two with a soda, a glass of wine and a cocktail. But is it worth it ? To the last penny. we will definitely go another time as it was pretty fun but a bit messy. (might be a good idea to have spare close if you go somewhere else after.

I thought this would be an interesting culinary experience and it was not. The room was cold and smelly. The food was average quality. The meals were inconvenient to eat in the dark. and instead of an "experience" it seemed more like a joke to the other parties in the dining room. it was strange and nothing like the one in nyc. I wish it were better, but it wasn't.

Ce fu une très belle expérience. Tout est bien expliqué. L'entré et le repas furent excellent. Bémol: ils ont inversé l'entré de mon amoureux et moi. Ce qui n'est pas évidant à savoir vue que j'avais commandé la surprise. Service rapide au début, mais environ 40 min d'attente entre l'entré et le plat principale. Le serveur vient rarement nous voir. Apporter une veste car il fait froid lorsqu'on est assis près de la fenêtre. Les gens parlaient plus fort que ce que je m'attandais, mais on s'entendais bien parlé. Le tout a durer environ 2h (avec l'attente entre des 2 services). Il a fallu qu'on mange le repas plus vite que prévue car la place ferme entre les 2 quart.

We were excited to come here. We met our waiter, Will, we were seated in a dark room. The experience was extraordinary. Our waiter was GREAT and attentive and instructed us well such that things went smoothly. Unfortunately the table next to us had a flashing cell phone or something and THEY KNEW and did nothing about it. Therefore we could see the light to their feet and that was SO rude of them to ruin other's experience. Only after 30 minutes (I think?) did the flashing stop. Most of the waiters were blind so could not see that this was ruining other people's experiences. The front already told people to turn off anything that produces light as well so I don't know what else more could they do. Either way, food was good, and it was an experience. We really appreciated our waiter.

I'd been waiting to meet friends from the States for over a year to go to O'Noir. It did not disappoint. Our server, Tim, was excellent and could not have been more pleasant and accommodating. From the hostess to final farewell, this evening was more perfect than I could even have imagined. The attention to detail was incredible and though we were there a total of three and a half hours, NOT ONCE were we rushed or made to feel they had to "turn our table." A first for our group. I cannot recommend this restaurant more highly. The food was superb, but the ambiance and service at O'Noir was utterly sublime.

Ambiance et expérience agréable. Par contre, le serveur a renversé de l’eau froide sur moi à deux reprises, ce qui surprend de manière assez désagréable lorsque nous sommes dans le noir. Nous étions 6 et tous les 6 avons détestés le dessert surprise: un gâteau au bleuet avec de la menthe avec une garniture au bleuet et de la crème fouetté au bleuet. L’agencement de ce dessert est vraiment dégueulasse, ça été vraiment dommage de finir le souper sur une note négative à ce point.

I tought O'Noir would had made a special event for Halloween! I was dissapointed about that... if there is a place a would have been sure to find one it's there..... the food was exellent as usual! I prefer the old location vs the new one.... more quiet ... it was so noisy when i got to the table and it was only a Thuesday..... you dont feel all the experience if one of your sense is taken by noise ... Overall the food was great and the service too.
PN : to avoid disapointment you should update your online menu with the actual menu.

Lieu à découvrir pour une expérience ... unique !! Super concept ... Pour ceux/celles qui aiment se faire surprendre, je recommande le "menu surprise" ... Une autre manière de manger et de découvrir les aliments ... A refaire absolument ...
Le seul petit bémol ... une qualité des produits qui ne me semblent pas en accord avec le prix ... mais aucun regret ...

A bit of a mix up with who our server was supposed to be, but once we were seated everything was phenomenal. We both went for surprise 3 course meals with surprises cocktails, you can never go wrong with the surprise meals.

I had high expectations for this dinner and it was far more experiential and touching than I had imagined. We had Tim as our server and I would highly suggest to recommend him. He was the reason we enjoyed the evening as much as we did. Thank you Tim! We had a range of options from the surprise menu as well as duck and filet... amazing.

Such an amazing experience. Went for the novalty but in the end would return for the food. The experience of eatting in complete darkness was so amazing. After getting over being nervous about not being able to see, we experienced a heightened awareness of taste, texture and the greater need to converse. The waiter was fantastic and the food really good. If you want to really test your taste buds order the surprise items. We both guessed wrong!!
