Been to Europea few times before, when in Montreal, and were sorry to see the old location go.
Initially not too pleased with the 30-minutes wait in the bar and not very impressed with the watery cocktail that was offered.
However, our mood changed when we were seated and the show began.
The 5-course menu was an eye-opener with the unusual presentations. The exquisite lobster-tea, the 3-way foie gras plates, we finally learned how oysters are harvested , the 3-way beef with the supertender wagyu, the marshmallow show and the sugar-spun desert presentation.
Again unusual in every way, if we were to give out Michelin stars we would give 3***

Definitely an experience. That is probably the best word to describe it. There are many other places in Montreal to get a good meal, but come here if you want an experience. Don’t get me wrong, the food was great. But the presentation and the service were top notch.

Prepare for a disconcerting evening. Actually they tired us out when all we wanted was a delightful evening of wine and food. Wine issues I will get to soon. Decor is modern with Red Velvet Table Coverings harking to victorian times. I found this theme of odd juxtaposition and deconstruction to be unsettling. I suppose that may be the theme of this restaurant.

Upon arrival I was asked to sit and fill out a questionnaire. I declined and that seemed to upset the hostess. Upon arrival at our red velvet covered table my wife set her purse down. She was then asked to move her purse to her lap. The table cloth was then removed in flourish replaced with a tree hanging bread and a cloth runner. My wife returned her purse to the table only to be again asked to return it to her lap. The table covering was again changed and finally a white linen tablecloth was put down and we could relax.

We ordered a 7 course tasting menu with four Prestige matched wines. The tasting menu was very creative and well prepared. Very good, but not especially memorable. The wine was anything but Prestige at $150 or $37.50 per glass. Off the shelf no vintage Taittinger Brut, off the shelf 2014 ordinary Burgundy, off the shelf California Chardonnay and Cabernet. I would guess the average bottle cost was approximately $30. We were completely underwhelmed.

During the dinner we were asked to don a virtual reality mask and headphones. Both gimmicky and unnecessary....not to mention annoying.

Summary: The food is very good but avoid a tasting unless you want to be annoyed, order a good wine off the menu and do not trust the sommelier for a wine flight. Finally, given the choice again I would not return and eat two evenings in a row at Toque.

Décoration le mur blanc donnant sur la cuisine qui est vu à partir de la mezzanine devrait avoir une œuvre d’art ainsi la prise de photo de la table aurait un fond distinctif au lieu du mur blanc.

We were at Europea for the Afternoon Tea. We had one guest who was gluten sensitive and the rest of us got a gift of a cake from the chef. She was told she would get a box of chocolates but did not get them. We did not have any napkins which made it difficult to eat the finger foods.

C’était notre première fois au nouveau Europea. La cuisine est aussi délicieuse, la présentation des plats est absolument remarquable et le service aussi attentif. Une belle expérience gastronomique que nous comptons bien répéter bientôt. Seul petit bémol, nous avons été avisés quelques jours avant qu’il y aurait deux services à cause du Grand Prix. Si nous l’avions su plus tôt, nous aurions choisi une autre journée, pour pouvoir profiter au maximum de l’expérience.

Trop cher pour ce qui a été présenté (ex. Une seule huître!!!) Le goût des vins est exhorbitant. L’expérience(!) inutile fla-fla. Aurait tout avantage à revenir à l’ancienne formule d’excellente nourriture sans le théâtre. Je suis très déçue alors que j’aurais voulu que ce soit une belle soirée pour souligner des événements importants pour nous.

The food and cocktails were very good. The presentation, as intended, was quite a spectacle. However the service was horrendous. My wife and I were stuck there for 4.5 hours, an inordinate amount of time even for a tasting menu. It was technically 12 courses, though the first course is an amuse bouche as you are seated and the final 3 courses are rapid-fire desserts, so the timing was fully the fault of the service. I got the impression that our waitress was just far too busy to be helping a table of 2, so instead focused her attentions on the larger tables. Other times, she rushed us when we had a dish for only a couple of minutes. She also passed us off to other workers several times as she focused on her more lucrative tables. She sure showed up for the pourboire at the end.

Perhaps our experience was a one-off. The food was very good and again quite a spectacle for the most part, so I'm disappointed that the service tainted our experience.

Who would have thought that one of the best vegan meals in Montreal would be offered at one of its great French restaurants? The multi-course vegan tasting menu was wonderful and the whole dining experience was magical, surprising and entertaining. This is the place to go for a vegan or vegetarian out for a special occasion.

Pas un repas mais une expérience gastronomique, comme au Toqué, mais avec en plus une mise en scène originale et une atmosphère plus décontractée, sans doute grâce à la horde de jeunes serveurs qui se succèdent à notre table à chaque acte de la pièce. Les plats sont à leur meilleur et présentés de façon originale. Considérant tout cela, le rapport qualité-prix reste équilibré. Enfin, nous pouvons admirer le chef Ferrer lui-même (la cuisine fait face à la salle), ce qui est tout à son honneur un dimanche soir : -)

I am very disappointed. We wanted to go to this restaurant for so long and when we got the chance we couldn’t believe it. They only serve dessert and tea for lunch time!!?!????! Our table was reserved for 2:30pm we went there and spent 10-15 min looking at the menu which says very clear Lunch menu from 12pm-10pm we were ready to order until the waiter came and ask which te we would like?😂 we weren’t told they only serve that by anyone, not the hostess, not the waiter and not the website. what a joke!

The staff and “show” that they attempt to put on was decent. However, the portions, even for a French restaurant, were minuscule to the point of being laughable. Most of the food lacked significant flavor and one of the main courses, that was missing part of the promised pieces, got a bite from each of us before we pushed it away. After a $400 bill, and a very slow 2.5 hour meal, we are left disappointed and not impressed.
Our suggestion would be to go try any of the other great restaurants in Montreal.

Nous avions demandé une table ronde lors de notre réservation 1 mois avant notre soirée. Nous étions 5, et une table ronde est beaucoup plus agréable, malheureusement on a pas aquiescé à notre demande.. Nous avons eu droit à 2 tables collées qui n'étaient pas ajustées, donc verres et assiettes instables. Ils ont finalement mis une chaise en bout de table. Nous avons tous commandé le menu gastronomique 12 services. Il aura fallu 3 services avant qu'on prenne notre commande de vin. Nous avons eu droit à au moins 7 personnes différentes pour effectuer le service mais nous avons toujours eu l'impression de ne pas en avoir. On a eu droit à quelques plats servis sans que les assiettes du service précédent ne soit désservie. Il fallait demander pour avoir de l'eau et j'en passe. Bref nourriture très bonne mais quand on paie 558$ pour 2 personnes on s'attend à vivre un WOW et malheureusement l'effet a été plus dernière fois ici.

La nourriture excellente. La simultanéité du service des plats et des vins a été ratée à quelques reprises. Certains éléments de la mise en scène de Cyr excellents comme la pêche aux huîtres. D'autres moins intéressant comme le changement de nappes. Une adresse très originale où on prend le temps de déguster

Dining at Europea is an experience. Every time I come to Montreal this restaurant is a must. In a new location it is spacious and inviting. The food is delicious and inventive, a combination of design, performance and cuisine. Even more original than the two times I dined there previously. The servers are engaging and hospitable and the Open Kitchen to watch them create their magic makes the experience even better. I recommend it to anyone who likes great food, a fun experience and tons of photo opps.

The quality, taste, and presentation of the the food was phenomenal. We all had the 7 course menu and it was definitely a once in a lifetime experience. The concept behind each course was cleverly crafted to stimulate more than just your taste buds. If you are going to win Montreal I highly recommend you book a table, you will not regret it.

Lunch time at the new Europea location. Very disappointed by the menu and especially the extra that was surrounding the menu at the old location such as the grison, the Madeleine and cotton candy was gone just like the magic. The attention to detail seem also to lack for a Relais Chateau. Felt it is living on it’s reputation and that too bad. The cod ceviche was tasteless and salmon cook right but was missing a quick.
