“Make a reservation without hesitation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant is a must .... the tasting menu is an exquisite and surprising experience. Every course is a sensational visual and gastronomic treat. All the positive comments have already been written. If you love food and have a sense of humour you will leave with your tongue tingling. Michael, our server, was attentive and knowledgable. This was definitely our best experience in Montreal. Make a reservation!

“Best meal I've had in a long time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

I've paid twice as much for cuisine that's only half as good. Their chefs have elevated dining to an art form.

“Amazing Chef's Table Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

My wife and I came here for our 5 year anniversary, and the experience is one of a kind. Not only is the food amazing, but the presentation blew us away-- not to mention how courteous and painstakingly aware throughout the meal they were of my wife's gluten allergy, which I had mentioned when I made the reservation. The few items that were not gluten free, they were able to make her a delicious alternative. We did the tasting menu with the wine pairing. Probably the most surprising aspect of the meal was how well the wines paired with the food. It was amazing. If you are looking for a reason to splurge and spoil yourselves, this would be a great choice. They just keep coming with the courses, but they are small and spaced out enough that you are not so full that you can't continue as some of the posters have suggested. All in all, I highly recommend this restaurant.

“Formal dining of top quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

This is a restaurant for formal fine dining. Located downtown in an old townhouse, with dining on several floors, the restaurant has a nice and intimate atmosphere. There was a mix of business persons and couples. The service was excellent and personal. They have an extensive winelist and a sommelier to assist. A number of amuses is served, with quite some surprising presentations. With some the effects appeared to be more important than the taste. The quality of the appetisers and entrees was excellent. They served an extensive pre dessert. Compared with some top restaurants elsewhere, we thought that the focus was somewhat more on presentation and effects than on pure taste. We took the four course set menu and added a cheese platter to share. The quantity was just fine, bordering on a little too much. We would be hesitant to take more courses. Overall, we had an interesting and enjoyable dining experience. It certainly is one of the top restaurants in Montreal.

“A once in a lifetime meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

As a post-wedding celebration meal, the chef's degustation menu at Europea was perfect. We ate at one of 2 "chef's tables" just outside the kitchen, which added to our enjoyment as we watched food being prepared, plated and served. As others have noted, the actual meal consisted of at least twice the number of courses listed on the menu; at some point you just have to sit back, listen to your (very attentive) server, and savor the incredible flavors. My one caveat: we also had the wine pairings, but had to wait almost an hour for our first glass (of 5). Probably my first, last and only 4-hour dinner, but one I will never forget.
