O.Noir - A Culinary Experience like No Other !
O.NOIR Toronto will take you on a culinary journey through uncharted territory! Guests are invited to experience food, drinks, and conversation as never before – without the use of sight!
A meal will turn into a wonder to be discovered and explored. As the founder explains, eating in the dark heightens your remaining senses in order to smell and truly savour the food. As a result, the sense of touch, taste, smell, and hearing are amplified.
Guests are served by a member of our visually-impaired wait staff in an efficient and professional manner. The atmosphere is romantic, comfortable, and absent of lighting.

A very insightful and worthwhile experience as a seeing person so be immersed in this environment. Service is slow and it will take you 2+ hrs to complete your 3 course meal. Ensure you wash your hands and use the washroom prior to entering the dining room.

We really go for the experience. Other than that it would be an okay restaurant. The food is good, but the menu is not outstanding. The real value is the experience which is executed beautifully. The staff are great as well.

The food was cold & the service was terrible. We arrived on time for our reservation, was not acknowledged until we approached a waiter to place our order (45 minutes past our reservation). Many other people that arrived after us were served first. Would not recommend at all & definitely would not return.

Went on a busier day, however staff was not prepared at all. had reservations but was seated 45minutes late. All meals were incorrect. Starters were cold and dessert never came. Unique experience, go on a less busier night and it might be better experience.

Thank you to our server Dave who made last night so much fun for my parents anniversary! We all enjoyed the night and the experience. Everyone was happy with their meals, I ordered the steak and the chocolate cake. The steak was quite tasty and went nicely with the mashed potatoes. I like my steak well done - no redness and I definitely was happy! The chocolate cake was very good and a very generous portion was served!

The experience itself was great. When you show up, you wait for someone to give you the menu and take your order. The server was great and polite but the wait time was a bit too long. I got the 2 course meal with a drink and by the time all was done, about 2 hours had past. It sucks waiting so long in a dark place because you become tired!! The food was decent- ive read some negative reviews about the food but was more pleased than I thought. It is a bit loud in there so that is something to be aware of. The experience itself was great - a must go to at least once.

It was an interesting experience, but both my starter and main were cold, and the quality of the food wasn’t great. The experience was novel, but as a restaurant I get the impression that if it wasn’t in pitch blackness this place would have likely gone under years ago.

The server was excellent and the experience in the dark was awesome but the food was very basic and really nothing special. It was overpriced for the food we got. I would have expected to taste complex flavours given the fact that we can’t see but my mystery dinner choice was a dry pork chop with store bought bbq sauce and half cooked mashed potatoes - very disappointing.

I loved the experience, I appreciated experiencing something I have never felt or seen before. I appreciate the community of people who are blind or have difficulty seeing. Our server was amazing.

The decor while waiting was horrible, straight out of a shining movie decor lol please upgrade and display more happier vibes. Everything in the dark doesnt need to be depressing :)

A memorable experience! We went to O'Noir on a double date and had an amazing time. Our server Gavin was amazing and so was the food. Filet mignon highly recommended (I ordered the mystery meal and that's what I got). One person in our party was not overly impressed with the food, however my husband and I both loved our meals. We would love to go back!

Took my friend out and we both loved our experience. It's true that the food is better in the dark. Our server Nassir was amazing, the food was delicious, we loved the surprise starters and frankly we believe everyone should take the time to experience dining in the dark. It gave us both a real sense of appreciation of all the things we take for granted because we can SEE them! Things like knowing how much liquid is left in your glass, how full your plate is, how a straw could be dangerous, knowing where to keep your napkin - I lost mine! I also put my finger in my butter - twice! Truly an amazing experience. It was a bit loud in the room we were in. Not entirely sure if it was because our senses were enhanced but I know the table next to us was really loud, so not necessarily the environment but the night we were there, it was loud. A+++ I plan to return and bring my husband and maybe kids.

It was an interesting experience, I think it's good to test one, but I was little disappointed by the food. We were hoping to have a tenfold taste experience, but its was only correct.
However, our server was wonderful, very kind and patient, contrary to the receptionist was not very smiling and kind.
Moreover, even if we were planning to put a tip, the system is very embarrassing. We don't know if its normal, because it's the first time that happen to us. Indeed, It leaves us no choice to put the amount we want. The receptionist selects directly the fact of putting a tip, and one has the choice between three possibilities. This leaves no freedom to the customer and it's a pity...
