Plats délicieux, décoration agréable et tables espacées ce qui est rare à Montréal... Service fantastique, toujours une attention pour chaque convive, même pour un enfant d’en bas âge! Bravo!

Easy access, immediate attention from staff and seating. We had the five course tasting menu, which was excellent. In the middle of the meal, we considered whether to switch to the nine course menu. We were never rushed and had plenty of time to enjoy each course.

I visit Montreal every summer and had enjoyed several great meals at Jeremy Passat’s previous restaurant, Kitchenette.
I was excited when I learned he had opened Orea. The space is modern and inviting with an intimate feel. My dining companion and I ordered the vegetarian tasting menu and thoroughly enjoyed it. Service was wonderful.
I look forward to dining at Orea on my next trip to Montreal.

Service was excellent - couldn’t have asked for better. The food was unique and tasted great. We got the five course meal and although the portions were small we were surprisingly full. We noticed some fruit flies around the end of our meal which would normally turn me off but the food and service was so good that I didn’t even care.

We were greeted by a warm response upon arrival and the positive experience continued to build. Each of the four of us were excited to share our delight at the delicious flavors that were delivering with each morsel throughout our meal. Two of us enjoyed the vegetarian prix fixed meals and discovered the individual fresh ingredients combining into a symphony of flavor notes. Absolutely wonderful meal shared by a friendly server and restaurant owner who were proud in their anticipation of what we were about to experience.
We all loved our dining and overall experience at ÕREA and suggest that everyone dine here because you will be challenged to have a better meal anywhere you go, inside or outside of Montreal.

Our dinner here was sublime. We live in a city known for its food scene and are therefore accustomed to a high level of dedication to culinary art. The attention and creativity the chef devoted to the dishes we enjoyed here was exceptional. The crispy egg appetizer is worth traveling to Montreal from anywhere for! My husband’s halibut was gently seasoned, flavorful and perfectly cooked. My risotto was perfection. The restaurant’s ambiance is elegant without being overbearing - we felt at home and the service was attentive and warm. The wine list is small but offerings carefully chosen. Because the the restaurant could not honor our original reservation (we were notified well in advance) we were offered a complimentary cordial to complete our meal. Hats off to the chef and the staff for insisting that a meal is more than just food, but indeed an experience.

We had the 5 coarse tasting menu, it was great!
We started with a tomato & asparagus galette, then house made foie gras torchon with fig jam on toast then their signature fresh herb crust fried soft egg on baby asparagus salad then angus steak with a mushroom & ricotta ravioli with seasonal veggies followed by seared scallops served with polenta in a smoked dom & finally we had a divine cheese cake...
We will be back !

Food was good. Ambiance is nice. The only thing I found was a little off compared to other similar restaurants in Montreal was that if one wants to order a sample menu at $58, the whole table needs to order the same. I had a 10 year old with me and i found it to be not to flexible. The restaurant actually loses money because I wanted to get the sample menu at $58, my son the $28 beef and my friend the $28 beef. Everyone ended up ordering the $28 meal. I felt I was being held hostage to not order that meal. The waitress said the $58 had small portions. So with the $28 I guess it was more than enough. Then they started to push entrees on us. It was a nice place, but I don’t think I will be back for this reason as there are plenty other restaurants in Montreal who get to know their customers a little better (more personalized service) for the price.

Hello, we proposed for you and your friend to take the Degustation menu and to share with your son for no extra price, we understand the situation (we have kids) and we always try to accommodate families and kids for them to be the more confortable possible . You are not hostage of anything, and we are not forcing you for anything. About the prices, we have starters from 9$ to 22$ and main courses from 22$ to 34$, witch, for the old Montréal is very not expensive. Thank you.

Cozy yet roomy space: exposed brick, high ceiling, tables nicely spaced apart. Staff very accommodating and efficient. Food excellent and creative for the most part. Ingredients fresh. We were finally 7 diners; most were very happy with their meal.
I would have liked more choices for wines by the glass (there were only two reds and two whites) and more beer options, especially IPAs and darker beers.
When we arrived, the live music was extremely loud and totally out of sync for such a sophisticated and intimate setting. Thankfully, they lowered the microphone volume at our request. The volume was much better for the rest of the evening and we could hear ourselves talk after that.

We had the tasting menu and were blown away by the presentation and quality of the food. One of the top meals I have ever experienced. “The egg” and “foie gras” made my heart sing. Met the chef and his humble demeanour just topped off the charm of this restaurant. Thank you for such a joyous experience.

Great place in Old Montreal. The food and service were excellent; the whole staff was great and visited, just enough, times to our table that made it pleasant. Very, friendly too and knowledgeable of their menu and bar selections.
We had the Steak and the Scallops and the combinations of the flavors and the way they were prepared really made this my "definitely go back to" place to try more of Chef Jeremy's creations.
Once we had finished our meal, the Chef came out and greeted us and thanked us for coming by and also complimenting him on the food he prepared. If you ever in Montreal, this is a place we highly recommend.
Reasonably priced for the area and the location is great as well.

Hi Mister Jacob, we are terribly sorry that you feel that way.. We try to be friendly and welcoming with all our guests, no exeptions there. May be the waiter was too busy to take your coats but normally we ask all the time if we could pick up the jackets . We don't rally understand what makes you give us such a bad comment. We are really sorry and hope that you can come again and change this bad feeling that you had. The Orea Team .

Une très belle découverte! Nous y sommes allés pour un souper en amoureux et nous avons adoré l'expérience. Le service était impeccable, le serveur était très attentionné. Et que dire du savoir faire du chef...chaque plat était magnifiquement apprêté et plein de saveurs. Les prix sont très raisonnables et la table d'hôte à 35$ vaut vraiment le coup considérant la qualité des plats. On nous a même offert des petit amuse-bouches qui étaient délicieux. Un établissement plein de promesses! Nous y retournerons à coup sûr pour une autre soirée gourmande au son du tout nouveau piano.

Orea is a wonderful newcomer to the Old Montreal resto scene. So new they will only have their liquor license in mid March, but the food is an excellent offering of French cuisine.
Out St. Valentines dinner Started with an Œuf Mollet, a medium boiled egg, peeled but then dipped in a thin coating and flash deep fried, to yield a wonderful crispy outside texture. Sitting on a spinach base with deep fried leek shavings, this was terrific. Then a lively serving of trout gravlax; beef cheeks and mushrooms that melted in our mouths; poached Cod with leeks and Brussels sprouts to die for; and a chocolate tart with hazelnut mousse.
Go there—-you will love it!

Ce restaurant est une belle découverte. La crème de courge était onctueuse et très bien assaisonnée. La joue braisée tendre et juteuse servie avec riz sauvage et échalote française en robe des champs. Délicieux. Le dessert, pomme cannelle n’était pas trop sucrée avec un croustillant intéressant. Nous avons bien aimé.

J’ai eu le plaisir de passer le souper du 31 décembre et j’ai passé une soirée exceptionnelle. Nous avons opté pour souper au bar qui est fort confortable et avons pris le menu 5 plats à 66$. Il y en avait un autre à 98$ pour 9 plats.

Les plats étaient très succulents, de beaux produits et une belle exécution qui ne me fait pas regretter mon choix pour ce restaurant de quartier. Je pense qu’il faut vraiment les privilégier par rapport à ces grands restaurants dont tout le monde parle et qui sont extrêmement décevant avec leurs chefs très connus mais jamais en cuisine ou rarement quand il y a une personnalité qui vient manger.

Le service était à la hauteur de la cuisine sans oublier les conseils du Chef Sommelier.

En parlant avec un des propriétaires, il m’a dit qu’ils allaient proposer des poissons à découper devant les clients, même chose pour certaines pièces de viande et il y aura aussi un chariot de fromages. Voilà un retour à une restauration que nous ne voyons qu’en France et qui me donne déjà envie de revenir.

On va attendre la prochaine occasion spéciale pour revenir vous voir.

Merci beaucoup pour avoir égayer ce dernier repas de 2019!
