We enjoyed every moment of our visit to Europea! The staff did a great job of portraying how excited they were to share the chef’s foods. All of the little surprises from the kitchen were a joy to experience and I would say it was worth it to watch what other tables ordered as well. Could not have asked for a better evening!

We had the tasting menu which was enjoyable. Most of the courses were composed very well and presented in an original way. Service was okay and the staff is friendly. They must have run out of energy towards the end. On the negative side, this meal was BRUTALLY TOO LONG (especially towards the last few dishes). WOW 4 HOURS and much of the time waiting. I've had a 25 course tasting menu at Gaggan which was brilliantly orchestrated and took a little under 3 hours. Europea is great if you have a lot of time.We

I would not recommend Europea. I don't normally write reviews, but I feel obligated given the stature of this restaurant. The food was great (highlights were Lobster Cappuccino, the foam/ice cream tart, and the desserts (minus the cotton candy, which is great visually, but in the end is just....cotton candy). The service was also friendly and professional even though no one in my group spoke French. The wine pairings were very good and the sommelier very knowledgeable. They also get a huge plus for being VERY accommodating to food allergies (there were 4 in my group, all different allergies).

However, two things completely killed this experience for us. 1) We were placed in a part of the restaurant that was somewhat secluded. This meant there was little to no airflow, and it became EXTREMELY hot. Two members of our group were visibly sweating throughout the meal. Multiple people took off their shoes under the table to prevent from overheating. It was very, very uncomfortable. This made the second problem even worse...2) The pace of the dishes arriving was brutally slow. Even if they rest of the experience was a 10/10, this alone would warrant a poor review. In our group, 4 people ordered the 10 course tasting menu and a few others ordered a la carte entrees. In reviewing responses on Yelp from the restaurant, the restaurant has stated that a 10 course menu should take approximately 3 hours. Our dinner took nearly 5 hours. We were waiting an average of 20 - 25 minutes between courses. The people who ordered entrees didn't receive it until 3 hours into the meal, by which time they were literally sick from hunger. Because of the heat and moreso because of the pace of the meal, half of our group left mid-way and went to a different restaurant, leaving the other half to receive the final courses and pay the bill.

I brought my husband there for his 60th birthday and his retirement. I was extremely disappointed with the ambiance: the lights were too harsh; I actually asked for them to be turned down and it seemed to be a difficult thing to do, the numerous servers were running around as if there was a fire; very stressful ambiance; the service was extremely rushed. The servers were polite but cold and the smile were fake for many of them. I got the feeling they were under A LOT of pressure. I was expecting a much more relaxed and pleasant experience. The food was good but nothing exceptional. I am sorry to be so blunt but this was our experience. The bill came to be 560$. That is a good amount of money and I would have thought that paying such an amount would have given us ''the time of our lives'' but it wasn't even close. We were there last Saturday, and our names were Joanne Delage and Randy Jackson. Hope that this review can help you satisfy all your customers.

C'était ma 5e fois chez Europea et malheureusement la dernière. Nous étions assis à côté de la caisse et de l'étagère pour déposer les plats et la vaisselle sale dans une petite salle qui s'avérait un couloir de passage. Peu invitant. Nous pouvions sentir le débordement des serveurs qui ont dû entendre nos commentaires. En arrivant, j'ai remarqué un trou dans le mur juste à côté de moi ce qui m'a surprise pour un restaurant haut de gamme. Il y avait aussi un flagrant manque d'air ce qui fait que nous sortions à l'extérieur pour respirer un peu pendant la soirée. Il a semblé faire un peu plus frais ailleurs. Le sommelier ne semblait pas avoir le temps de nous aider dans notre choix qui a été expéditif et dans le courant du repas (plus de 4 heures), nous avons redemandé la carte pour recommander une bouteille de vin puisque nos verres étaient vides. La carte est restée sur le coin de la table et personne n'est revenu pour nous demander notre choix avant que l'on ait terminé le plat principal. Nous avons dû demander de nous desservir car nous sommes restés plusieurs minutes avec nos plats vides et après 3 heures, tout le monde en avait un peu marre malheureusement. On voyait plusieurs personnes passer devant nous, mais personne ne s'arrêtait. Quand on m'a demandé si j'avais aimé, je me suis contenté d'un timide " quand même", mais on ne m'a pas demandé d'élaborer. Je croyais offrir l'expérience d'une vie à mon conjoint dont c'était l'anniversaire, mais ce ne fut pas du tout le cas. Même deux jours plus tard, j'ai de la difficulté à accepter l'issue de cette soirée que je voulais mémorable. Plus de 400$ pour deux personnes ce n'était absolument pas justifié pour l'expérience que nous avons vécu. Nos amis en étaient à leur 3e visite chez Eurepea et eux-mêmes nous ont dit que c'était leur dernière. Nous étions 6 à table et les factures combinées se sont élevées à près de 1200$-1300$... Nous méritions autant d'égards que les autres clients dans le restaurant ce soir-là.

It was a great lunch with my family on our visit to Montreal this time. Staff was so friendly and professional, food was so amazing, especially the calamari and the sea bass. This calamari is something that I never had before and the sea bass was so delicious, using hay and citrus to steam the sea bass. Thank you Europea and we will definitely come back again.

Tous ceux qui aiment la grande cuisine doivent venir à l' Europea au moins une fois dans leur vie. C'est une expérience unique, une invitation à un voyage olfactif, gustatif, visuel et sensoriel extraordinaire. J'y suis venue la première fois en 2014, et y retourner quatre ans plus tard, a été encore mieux que dans mes souvenirs. J'ai mis 5 étoiles à ce restaurant car tout y est parfait, de plus le personnel est très attentionné, prévenant et très professionnel, jovial sans être familier et devançant vos moindres souhaits.
Bref, un lieu mémorable.

The biggest problem was how long it took in between courses. We were given a bunch of amuse bouches at the beginning of the meal, but it took an hour to get our first drink. Our reservation was at 8:30 and the meal finished at 12:50 am. The last glass of wine in the pairing was forgotten. We’ve had other wine food pairings and this just did not seem on point. The wine was definitely and after thought in when it arrived compared to food. Presentation is fantastic. We put it was Anniversary and I was lactose intolerant on the resy and it was not considered.

Good experience with the tasting menu, food was outstanding, very nice service, decor is quite a bit outdated, and the biggest issue was that it took over 3 hours. If you don’t mind the wait, overall experience was still very good. I would recommend them to reduce the number of dishes, as at some point it was just too much. Still overall good experience.
