Went for brunch last weekend. The beef tartare was a bit underseasoned, but the accompanying taro and lotus root chips were light and crunchy, a nice touch. The best dish, roasted duck breast benedict on a fried rice pancake with a mushroom and soy-based jus, was spot-on. The matcha 'soufflé' pancake was more American-style and denser than a Japanese soufflé pancake; the appropriately bitter green tea flavour could've been balanced with a sweeter and richer sauce; perhaps either chocolate or red bean coulis?

Host initially gave us two bar seats that were nearest to the front door when there were at least 2 tables and 5 other bar seats open. Table service was beyond courteous, as they made us a new duck plate after finding some plastic wrapping and took it off our bill. Would return to try their evening service.

Blossom's brunch was a great experience. Great quality and price. First weekend thus they need to get used to serve in the morning (coffee, water, refill of mimosa). Staff were polite, attentive. Would come back any time!

Unfortunately, the adress provided by Open Table in your calendar (syncs automaticaly) is not valid. It brings us downtown Montreal. A update would be recommended.
Food was good. It’s different but in a good way. Maybe adding some avocados in the meals would be a great idea!
Thanks!

Everything was nice. The only thing was that the menu was reduced for valentine and some friend really wanted some item on the normal menu. It wasnt on the website or anything....
Everything else was 100%!

J’ai tout aimé de mon expérience au Blossom Bar. L’endroit est bien situé et la deco et l’ambiance sont super. Nous avons commandé 4 plats à deux et tout était très bon. Je recommande le resto et y retournerai certainement.

Le saké chaud nous a ouvert l'appétit. Ma compagne a bien apprécié la pizza sushi avec son tempura bien croustillant. Le matcha lava est exquis!

The service was okay, seemed very rushed. My friends and I went for my birthday to Blossom and wanted to take pictures in front of the tree. The staff seemed irritated with this. The food was good, however the menu did not contain all ingredients of food and drinks which resulted in an incident! I ordered a drink which listed ingredients of rum, soda, alcohol and cassis. I received the drink, and upon sipping it i immediately had an allergic reaction. i have a SEVERE allergy to egg whites and the drink had a mousse of eggs and powdered egg whites. It was not listed in the ingredients! lucky for me i did not have to use my Epipen, but with an allergy that can result in anaphylaxis it is shocking they do not take precautions to put ALL ingredients in their menu of every item!!

Hesitated before saying I would recommend. The place is certainly beautiful but the food (more specifically the sushi) has declined since my last visit (last year). Used to be that you could see them prepare it in front of you but that is no longer the case. The salmon tartare was a bit bland but the salmon sashimi was quite good. The sushi was uneventful, with the eggplant one being all mush and no sizzle (and I love eggplants). Blossom might still be worth the visit for some of the dishes I didn't order but definitely not for the sushi.

Overpriced sushi in a really nice looking restaurant ambiance. Appetizers were ok, very small portions for price.
Service was not on point, which makes it even more annoying to pay a lot. The waiter provided so much details about sakes but made no food suggestions or appropriate pairings with sake. Also, hostess seemed so bored... she saw me searching for my waiter a few times and instead of coming to see us and ask if we needed help or wanted to order, she simply turned her glance away. Restaurant needs to work on their team spirit.
Je suis déçue car cela faisait longtemps que je voulais l’essayer. De plus TRÈS longue attente pour la nourriture-un mardi soir en plus- je ne peux même pas m’imaginer les week-ends!
J’aurais tellement voulu aimer ce resto : (

They changed the menu. There are no longer affordable sushi, only expensive specialty sushi at 18$ for 6-8 sushi. For 120$, we had less than 40 sushi. Would not go again.

Great food, everybody loved the chicken Karagee. The matcha lava was a delicious dessert as well. However it was freezing in the restaurant, they placed us close to the front door and it took a while before they turn the heat on. If it wasn't for that, the overall experience would've been better.

We sat down and no one came over to our table for 15 minutes. When we finally got someone’s attention, they gave us dirty looks and still didn’t want to attend to us. A waiter finally came over, however they were rude and didn’t even acknowledge that we had been waiting. This place is a joke and I wouldn’t recommend going here.

Very nice restaurant, really enjoyed it.
The place itself is a bit cold the heat would need to be turned on a bit higher.
Ordered the miso soup and had to ask for it to be re-heated. When it came back it still wasn’t hot enough...little details but would be appreciated if it was respected.
Waiter was really nice and knew his stuff!

I went for the couple's deal. It was very yummy and the place looks great. The prices are a bit high though so I don't see myself going there without that promotion. The service was great although slow. I sat next to the windows and there was a draft so I felt cold despite the fact that I was wearing a cardigan and a big scarf. I would still recommend this place though, it was worth the experience!

My second visit. Brought work colleagues from the US. Service and offerings are exceptional at an extremely reasonable price point. Fun vibe and a bartender who makes a proper Manhattan. I will be back.

The food was very good, The place is very nice, however the service is not impressive. Had a reservation and was offered poor choice of table, than during our meal we were asked if we could move a seat (in the end sitting at the bar). For the price you pay for the food and the ambiance it is not worth it.

We loved this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes.

Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable.

Very satisfied...

Unlimited sake 5-7 was nice the food is terrible and overpriced and also there are pieces of masking tape that are clearly visible under the blossom tree. If the menu gets better this place could totally be lit.
