Two of the only 5 entrees and appetizers were not available. The choice is extremely small and very different from the pictures on the internet. First time, and definitely last time in this restaurant. Quiet - only 5 tables (14 guests total) over a period of 2 hours (7h30-9h30). We were NOT impressed.

What an amazing evening! We enjoyed the 5-course chef’s tasting menu with 3 perfect wine pairings. The fish, beef and poultry choices on the menu also looked great, but we were really intrigued by the vegetarian options. They did not disappoint! Preparations were creative and tasted straight-from-the-farmers-market fresh. We received a warm gracious welcome and were thoughtfully served all evening. Wonderful experience! Merci beaucoup!

My husband and I ate at Orea on a recent trip to Montreal. We had an outstanding dinner in a beautiful setting. It was nice and quiet so we didn’t have to yell to be heard over the restaurant noise. The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. I had the crispy egg and scallops and my husband had the foie gras and beef cheek. Dessert was caramel cheesecake. We heartily recommend it all! The service was also excellent and the staff was so friendly and welcoming. Try it, you’ll be glad you did!

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 .
