❝ Riccardo, our host and waiter, was impeccable. He was attentive to our initial fumblings, patient with our exclamations, thorough with the explanations, and alert to our questions. We experienced another world, and the memory is deep. Thank you! ❞

About us

With its moonless atmosphere, restaurant Dans le Noir isolates the senses allowing for particular attention to the palate. Come try it with the lights off.

Upon arrival at Restaurant Dans le Noir, you will be welcomed into our warm and friendly lighted lounge, where one of our helpful hosts will explain the dinner process. You will choose your dinner menu and your order will be taken. If you have any allergies, please let us know when ordering so we can adapt your menu. Also, after being seated, please remind your waiter of any allergies you may have so that they may bring you the correct plate in the dark room. This reduces the risk of any confusion that may occur. You will be asked to place all of your possessions (including bags, watches, mobile phones, lighters, or anything that projects light) into a locker.When your name is called, you will be asked come to the entrance of the dining Room, where you will be introduced to your experienced waiter. He/she will be guiding you to your table in the dark room.

All clients must follow strict security instructions, and never attempt to walk around in the Dark Dining Room alone, unless they are with a waiter.

Once you are seated at your table, you are free to order additional courses/items. You are also encouraged to converse freely with your waiter, and address him/her by their first name. Your waiter is there to help you, and he/she will be your eyes for the next two hours. If at any point you feel uncomfortable or stressed, please tell your waiter and he/she will bring you back to the lighted bar/lounge where you will be able to finish your meal.

At the end of the dinner, you will be escorted out by your waiter. We ask you to exit the darkroom carefully. After you are back in the lounge area, you are encouraged to talk about your experience. Finally, after paying your check, if you have any possessions stored in a locker, you are free to remove your belongings and leave

We hope you enjoy this unique experience, and that you will help promote the concept by urging all of your friends, family, and colleagues to join us for dinner!

Oui une expérience en soit mais sincèrement la qualité de la nourriture n’y est pas pour le prix payer. La prochaine fois, j’irai dans un autre resto qui propose la même expérience.

Service trop rapide, nourriture plus qu’ordinaire. On paie pour être dans le noir, rien de plus. Attention, ils chargent le pourboire sur la facture directement. De plus, ils voulaient nous charger le pourboire sur les prix au menu de 60 $ quand la table d’hôte est 35 $! Inacceptable. Triste pour les non-voyants qui y travaillent que les gestionnaires soient aussi malhonnêtes par leur mal information.

Super belle expérience.... nous avons adoré!! Question nourriture.... c'était bien mais rapport qualité/prix, il y a place à beaucoup d'amélioration. Serveur Riccardo, vrai aveugle de naissance, est formidable et le service est super.
Gros bémol pour nous, le tip est obligatoire et mis automatiquement sur la facture!!!! Pour moi, légalement parlant, c'est pas acceptable!!

Unique, unusual experience - eating out in the dark. We ordered filet minion and veal...both were well cooked. Ricardo the server was fantastic and made us feel welcome. 4 stars because the tomato sauce was a bit too sour and some of our salad leaves were not fresh. Overall we reccond.

The disorganization of this restaurant was shocking - we arrived at 8:15 for an 8:30 reservation, and didn't get seated until 9:30. I was guided to the bathroom at one point and left there for 15 minutes. The actual experience of eating in the dark was fun and novel, but be prepared to wait and don't come super hungry or needing to go to the bathroom.

Front end service was terrible. No organization. Manager in the front is incredibly rude. You will spend a lot of time in the front room with no direction of what to do. They spend so much time accepting payment before serving those arriving. The reason this happens is everyone has to argue about their bill. They will charge you extra for everything. Even though we pre-paid we came out still owing money, and we had water with dinner. They will charge you extra for dessert even though it does not state that anywhere. Your money is much better spent somewhere else. While it is an interesting experience the scam they pull is just down right wrong and will spoil the whole dinner.

Jai été déçu dès mon arrivée, le personnel de l'accueil n'est pas très accueillant, la nourriture était très ordinaire , 100$ pour manger des coeurs de palmiers en canne non merci et nous avons eu droit à la table tout près de la cuisine et salle de bain donc j'avais un coin illuminé tout le long du repas. Ma première fois au dans le noir et la dernière... le serveur étais très gentil par contre!
