ONoir was, hands down, one of the best dining experiences I've ever had. Not only was the food exceptional the fact that the entire time we were in pitch black only added to the experience. The waitstaff were quite friendly and continue to amaze me with how effortlessly they can navigate the dark room.

A truly unique dining experience. We were seated by a table of nine celebrating a birthday but even that level of noise didn't manage to take anything away from the evening. We will probably book there every time we are in the city.

We went here for our anniversary it was a fun experience that cannot be found anywhere else. The experience of eating in the dark is incredible and heightens your other senses (taste, touch, smell, sound). The food was incredible and the service was awesome. Sophie was our waitress and she was so pleasant and helpful.

The whole O Noir experience is something everyone must try once. Words can’t describe how you feel in complete darkness. The food was good, although I think it taste much different when you can’t see what you are eating. My only complaint, the reason for giving it 2 stars, is that it was VERY hot and humid and stuffy in the dining room. The city was in the middle of a heat wave, with humidexs of 45 degrees and they chose not to put on the AC. This lead to a very hot and uncomfortable 2 hours to the point where I had to ask to leave early because I was overheating. I could hear several other guests say the same thing. Really a shame because it was a simple fix to help the customers and the staff.

Incredible experience and food if ideal conditions existed. Very noisy, people cursing over darkness, people making sheep noises extremely loudly spoiled ambiance. Not worth the cost - heat and loud environment - many better options elsewhere in Montreal.

c'est une expérience intéressante a vivre au moins une fois. c'est vraiment déstabilisant
de ne pas voir le contenue de notre assiette, et de ne même pas voir nos propre mains.
la nourriture est bonne. et tout le personnel était très gentil. en particulier notre serveur Sammy. Si vous êtes courageux, essayer le menu surprise et essayer de deviner ce que vous manger.

From entering the restaurant to being served food, the service was exceptional.

When you first enter you pick out what dishes you want and are then guided into the dark to the seating area by your server.

The food was excellent. The experience of eating in total darkness was truly unique, and it made for a very intimate setting.

ONoir is one of the most unique experiences I have had, and I would encourage everyone to try it at least once.

It was a really incredible experience. The waiters are wonderful, and the food was fantastic. We opted to choose our starters and mains, and get a surprise dessert. The process of trying to guess what the dessert was was a fun part of the night, but actually it would have been perfect even if we had no surprises. The feeling of eating in the dark was surprisingly freeing, and we ended up eating with our hands a lot, because it was a lot easier! I was worried I'd knock everything over, etc., but actually the server described the table layout, and had the process of handing over dishes and drinks smoothly totally down pat.

Overall just an incredible experience -- highly recommend!

It was an absolute pleasure to dine here. What a fantastic and unique experience! Our server, Sammy took very good care of us. (If you didn't know, O.Noir employs visually impaired people as their servers.) My boyfriend and I ordered each other's dishes without letting the other know what it is so it was fun to trying to figure it out what we were eating in the dark. The food itself was surprisingly good, and not just because our other senses were heightened. I can't stop recommending this place! Would love to try it again if they had it in my city!

ONoir was the highlight of my weekend trip to Montreal. Our server was charismatic and funny and easy to trust to lead you into a dark room. The food was AMAZING even if I didn't recognize what I was eating. Everything was absolutely worth the price, which isn't even that bad considering the unique experience, fantastic service, and delicious food. I went there on a date and we had a blast talking to each other in the dark and trying each other's food to try and guess what it was. I can't recommend this place enough.

The meal was good, the service impecable but at the end a group of four women was just near us and they wouldn’t stop screaming for a good 20 minutes. We left because of it. It gave me a headache for the rest of the evening

This is an amazing experience, which is more about the experience than the food. Having said that my beef was cooked to perfection. It is truly pitch black in the restaurant, you can see literally nothing and I definitely enjoyed using my other senses. Our waitress was magnificent and it is an experience I would recommend.

I took my sister to Onoir, where one of us ordered the secret menu, while the other chose specific dishes we wanted (we shared the dishes). Overall, the food was OK, a hit or miss I felt.

The PRO was that this is an experience that is neat to have. It's a very strange feeling to be sitting in the dark and eating with your hands.

The CON was that after our dessert, we felt the waiter left us there for 20+ minutes, and we basically couldn't get our bills because we'd forgotten the waiter's name to call out to him, and we couldn't see.

I would say experience this once, and never again... I feel like this wouldn't be a great experience for kids, since it was quite a chore just to eat.

It was a sensory overall as you eat in complete darkness. Your server is blind and leads you through the whole dining experience. It gives you respect for the challenges for someone who is blind faces with doing something as simple as having dinner. Everyone was friendly and the food was quite good. You will find your table manners disappear as you try to eat dinner.

Well worth the experience. Dining in the dark can be very uncomfortable at first, but the restaurant and the wait staff is very well equipped to make it easier for you. The food is great and can be adjusted to your restrictions, should you order the surprise dishes.
