“INCREDIBLE!! Must go!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

Europea is not a dinner... it's an experience! For starters, the price is very reasonable compared with most tasting menus at top restaurants. From the moment you sit down, the service is impeccable. Our bartender made the best martinis that we have ever had, period. The presentation was unique, and it made each course feel like an event. The food was delicious, and the ambiance is romantic. We had a wonderful time and would love to go back if we are in Montreal again.

Our thanks to Jean and his team. We were beyond delighted. There was a magic to the evening, excellence in the food (the meal of a life time, dine out menu), seamlessness to the service and great sense of fun. We will be back.

“Romantic dinner with my cheri!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

Went there for our wedding anniversar!!! Reservation madr by my husband.. At first i was little bite worry because pricy is the restaurant and very poor is the food but this time it was different i really love the experience and i want to renew the experience. Yes, the portion are a little bite small but that come with fancy restaurant. Would do it again anytime. The food taste great and had a lot of flavours. Ambiance was sooo romantic and cozy, everything in that restaurant make you relaxe and feel special. Waiters and maitre d'hote make sure that everythin go well with your dinner and even ask you if you have allergy before you have to mention it!!! Oooooh that is awesome!! Love the place and will of course go back again!!!!

“One of the most memorable meals of our lives.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

(see explanation of ratings below)

5 of 5 stars (excellent, fine dining).

Huge emphasis on creative showmanship and presentation.

About $90 per person, one cocktail each, no dessert, tax (15%) included, gratuity not included.

Allow 2.5 hours for the smaller of the two price fixe menus.

Simply wonderful event from start to finish.

We had about six amuse bouches including:

-Cheese "lollipops" with truffle popcorn
-jerky on a clothesline
-cheese "cigars"
-mini corn muffins
-book of smoking smoked salmon
-assorted mini desserts

Great service and very good sommelier, Jack Grimaudo.

About my ratings:

Only high-priced dining establishments can garner five stars. Until TripAdvisor realizes that a fast food joint cannot possibly be ranked equally with a $100 per person place, I need to draw the line somewhere. If we were only talking about the quality and presentation of the food, it would be a different story. But, as we know, TripAdvisor's rankings take into account the entire dining experience.

Therefore, I divide restaurants into three categories (and I wish TripAdvisor would do the same):

1) fast food and "fast-casual", low-priced (no table service).

2) casual, mid-priced dining (table service, average entrée price: $10-$20).

3) fine, high-priced dining (linen napkins, no plastic cups, no TV's in dining room, average entrée priced at more than $20, can vary depending on the city).

High-priced dining can earn a max of five stars. Mid-priced dining can earn a max of four stars. Fast food can earn a max of three stars.

“Amazing find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

Came a couple years ago to Montreal and walked around to find this gem (not a hidden one apparently). Went in and had the tasting menu... it was excellent. There were three dessert courses, multiple amuse bouches, a to die for fresh pea lobster soup and too much else to mention. Rich flavours, great service, excellent value.
Highly recommended.
