The food was cold and not very memorable
Interesting experience and I don’t regret trying it but we won’t be returning

Our server Sammy was amazing, great conversationalist, and incredibly comfortable helping us navigate our experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening in Montreal, we are visiting from Calgary, Alberta, and I would say this was a top highlight of our trip. We would like to come back and try your bistro menu in the warmer months. No improvements necessary. Nicole and family

Such a unique experience! I am not sure if it enhanced my taste for the food, as it was delicious, but it gave me a better appreciation for the challenges one faces without sight! The staff were very friendly and the waiters impressive!

I loved the entire experience! The lighted bar/lounge area had a warm welcoming and rustic feel to it. All of the staff were excellent. The lockers provided for the personal belongings were a great touch. The menu was quite varied with options for just about every taste. I chose "surprise" for everything and loved trying to figure out what I was eating; turns out I am quite poor at this and my palate needs some refining. lol The food was incredibly delicious. I went to O.Noir with three girlfriends - one of which started feeling not so well upon entering the dark dining room. She and another one of my friends decided to leave the dark area and were able to have their dinner in the bar/lounge area. The staff could not have been nicer or more understanding and took great care of my friends while they ate. Our server inside kept giving us updates on our friends outside to let us know they were ok. I would definitely recommend this experience and look forward to going back again sometime in the near future.

Que du positif lors de mon expérience avec des amis. La nourriture, le service, l'ambiance, tout était au dessus de mes attentes. Déjà hâte d'y retourner et de choisir le menu surprise, car j'ai maintenant très confiance en cet endroit !

My second time coming to O Noir in many years and it has only improved. We had 3 mystery courses paired with mystery drinks. Everything was delightful. The main course was amazing. Service was fantastic - she was an expert. Thanks for a great experience!

J’ai adoré mon expérience. Cela nous permet de sortir de notre zone de confort et de réfléchir sur certains sujets. Il est certain que je vais y retourner. Je conseil à tout le monde de prendre le menu surprise pour vivre encore plus une belle expérience.

The food was not fresh... we order a mango salade and there was no mango we ask the waitress to have a look... they treat us like liar. The food we order was fish: not fresh we got sick my fiancee and I.

I went for the experience. It was amazing overall, just one thing is everyone was talking really loud. I'm assuming to compensate that they cant see people just talk louder than normal. Waiter was awesome.

Experience was great. I went to Onoir’s previous location and this new place is great.
Only downside was it was soooo noisy, we had trouble hearing each other when we talked
And the duck was a little too cooked, still good though

One of the highlights of our Montreal trip! One we will remember forever. The server Sammy was remarkable and the food was very good. We ordered off of the menu and got the "surprise" wine. My husband and I both have food allergies (gluten) and the chef had no issues making substitutions to ensure everything was gluten free. I did get tapped on the head/body a couple times by people (I assume guests) who were walking along the path (in the dark). It was also very loud, but it was a Friday night. The dining room was PITCH BLACK so be prepared to sit in pure darkness and fumble with your utensil quite a bit. Definitely would want to try the "surprise" meals if we didn't have food allergies!!

Everything about the actual restaurant was fantastic!! The food was the best I've ever had and the atmosphere was great. Unfortunately when we went, the noise level was almost unbearable. People were screaming and banging on tables and it ruined a lot of the experience - and we didn't go on a Friday or Saturday. I would love to go back and hopefully have a better experience!

Eating at O. Noir was one of the things we (my husband, our 12 and 14 year-old daughters, and myself) most eagerly anticipated about our trip to Montreal, and it did not disappoint! The host who took our order did a great job explaining the menu options. He also made it clear that the chefs/kitchen would make dishes to accommodate various allergies and preferences, including the surprise selections. This was reassuring news for us as one of us is allergic to gluten and two others do not eat fish.

The food and drinks were delicious and well-paired; my husband and I each requested a mystery cocktail to accompany our first courses and we were told that they’d be made to complement our food. We’d ordered different appetizers and, indeed, our cocktails were completely different from one another and suited our dishes perfectly!

Our server, Felix, was terrific, making sure we got to and from our table easily and safely and listening attentively to, and answering, any questions we had.

The experience of eating in the dark, however (and it was *completely* pitch black), was absolutely the highlight of the evening! Obviously, your other senses work harder when one is removed, and that was definitely true in this case. It made for a unique and fascinating experience.

(The meal was not without a couple of hiccups... While attempting to give me my main course, the server {not Felix} smacked me in back of the head with the plate... And later, another server ran into one of our tables, sending it straight into my husband’s stomach... We were both eventually okay, but eating in the dark apparently carries some risks!)

All in all, we loved the experience. Our daughters, who had been apprehensive, found that they needn’t have worried - their food was exactly to their liking and eating in the dark wasn’t as scary as they’d imagined! We would definitely return.

This place is amazing! The food was great - the tuna tataki appetizer was my favorite part, but the shrimp risotto and the seabass were also delicious. Our waitress, Sophia, was incredible: her timing was impeccable (we had just the right amount of time to comfortably finish each plate before she came by to collect them); and she was very good at communicating what was in front of us at all times. This experience helped me realize how much I take for granted when it comes to being able to see my food! For example, I thought that my dessert had peaches, but they were strawberries :) This was definitely worth it, and we would do it again.

I had a nice meal with an added experience of navigating in the dark. I think everyone should try this at least once. I had a wonderful time. Be prepared to leave your light up devices in a locker because it is truly dark in the dinning area. It was nice to eat with no phones allowed!

This is a must do experience! My husband did the surprise plates for all 3 and it was so much fun trying to figure out what foods were on his plates! I would highly recommend coming here. The food was amazing, service was incredible and the entire staff was super helpful and nice. Our server was Sammy and he was absolutely wonderful!

I would definitely recommend this to everyone.
The service, the experience, the food. It was all impeccable.
It can be unsettling for the first 15 minutes but everyone who decides to try it should keep an open mind to enjoy the experience.
It’s definitely not for the faint of heart as the experience can be quite overwhelming but it’s definitely a must do.

C'est vraiment une expérience unique et enrichissante. J'ai beaucoup aimé. Le volume de la musique est peut-être élevé, puisque j'ai parfois eu de la misère à entendre ceux avec qui j'étais. L'absence de vision compliquait alors la communication.

Très bonne nourriture!

I have been to this style of restaurant in Israel and Vancouver, and by far, O Noir has the best food. Everyone at my table ordered different items and we all thought it was exceptional.
The waiter was awesome and very helpful.

Awesome experience!
Thanks!
