Loved this experience so much! Would recommend this to anyone going to Montreal! Food was delicious! Service so great! Honestly it was an awesome evening out, not being distracted by your phone at all or distracted by thing around you. Just enjoying the evening talking and eating great food! Love love love!

Had a great server who was friendly and professional. Eating in the complete darkness is an interesting and valuable experience, I would definitely recommend that everyone tries it at least once. As this was actually my second time, I found the food to be a bit mediocre compared to the last time.

I'd love this place on concept alone but the execution of the concept is what really makes this stand out. I would love to go again the next time I'm in Montreal.

We can recognize that we rely on our sight during eating in daily life. At first, I felt uneasy because of dark but the waiter was really kind and sophisticated, therefore I could eat dinner comfortable.

First time, great experience! I took the surprise meal and was a bit disapppinted for not being more original or with more flavors. Food was good though but price is more about the concept. However service was great, big thanks to Sofia!

Interesting experience. While I couldn't see, which is part of the experience, I could tell that my eyes were trying to see and were seeing things that weren't there. The room was loud, and I could hear many different parties talking about the food. Finding the food on the plate and actually eating it, was a little difficult, so I ended up using my hand a little more than I normally would have, but the food was good and it was an interesting experience.

Great experience. Our waiter Maurice was a superstar and so welcoming. It is not often you get to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes but this was a great chance to understand what it is like to be blind. Food was really good as were the surprise cocktails.

A great experience. Went into it not knowing what to expect and came out very thankful that I went. The dark hits you as soon as you are walked in (it’s pitch dark - I couldn’t see my hand in front of my face) however I quickly adjusted and found myself not wanting to leave. Highly recommend!

Expérience exceptionnelle et atypique ! À faire au moins une fois dans sa vie, avec un menu surprise pour être encore plus immerger dans le concept,
Serveur très agréable, et nourriture très bonne et originale.
Seuls points négatifs avec le prix, un peu cher pour deux service avec boissons non comprise + taxes + pourboires, ainsi que le bruit en entrant dans la salle lorsque celle si est pleine. Belle intervention de Maurice pour tenter de calmer les voix qui s'élevaient. Dans tous les cas, c'est un endroit que je recommanderai !

For the price the food quality is definitely not good, small portion and cold dish.

Everything was great from when we stepped in. Lockers are provided for jackets and purses. The menu was explained, we could choose each dish or go with surprise starters, entrees and dessert. We went for the surprise choices the entire way. You are served by visually impaired staff which is awesome. It was indeed pitch black to get the full experience. Food was superb and Morris our server was excellent. For some reason we did NOT get our dessert- maybe there was a misunderstanding. When we received our bill we mentioned we did not get any dessert the female waitress at the front didn’t look happy as we were charged for something we did not get - we were unsure if she thought we were lying but we sat for a good 30 minutes without dessert and decided to get our bill. However, they did send me a birthday cocktail on the house which was super sweet! Minus missing the dessert- everything was amazing. Everyone has to experience o’noir to find out!

I have been to restaurants with the same concept before and love them. The only thing that took away from the experience is that every time someone came out of or went into the kitchen I could see the light. Maybe another double door like the one patrons come in through could alleviate that? Our waiter Fe was truly outstanding and I am sure he could be the reassurance some visitors on their first experience would really need.

Ce serait parfait si l'accueil à l'entrée pouvait être un peu plus chaleureux. O Noir est une expérience sensorielle, mais aussi humaine. Les hôtesses à l'entrée sont vraiment moins accueillantes que les serveurs non-voyants.

Guests from out of town chose this as the restaurant in Montreal that had heard about and really wanted to go to - and they were very happy they did.

Dining at ONoir created an enhanced and new sensitivity to the dining experience by focusing on non visual clues. Everyone in our party loved it and appreciated our waiter, Sammy and his excellent service, guidance, and explanations.
It was fun selecting the mystery option in food and drinks- and then trying to guess what we were eating and drinking. Modifications were readily made for allergies and/or individual dietary constraints. The food was excellent!!
We would highly recommend ONoir!
