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.

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!!

We thought we were just going for the experience of dining in the dark. It certainly have us an appreciation for what the world of the blind is like - and in a gentle way. But then we were all thrilled to discover our meals were absolutely incredible. Hats off to the Chef. We'd return to this restaurant again.

It was too much noise inside, with little Try from them servents to actually ask people to not yell/scream/sing.

Also the servent We had this time were too stressed and did not make us feel very Welcome. Also not so good at remembering Who ordered What, like wrongly saying that the vegetarian just Are pork made it a bad feeling for this person... happily it was vegetarian but still made it unnessecary uncomfortable. Also the tables Are too close to eachother and Very small.
