Food was great, the sake tasting was a little small for the value.

The 'couple platter' is way too small for two people! It was advertise as what seemed like a full meal and it clearly isn't. Very deceiving.

Nous avions réservé à l'occasion des soirées de couples du mardi (nous avions réserver pour une occasion spéciale). Il y avait beaucoup de monde et notre table n'était pas prête. Finalement on nous a fait monter notre table dans l'entrée et à côté des manteaux, juste sur le courant d'air de l'entrée. Nous avons eu froid tout le long du repas et avons fait au plus vite pour terminer et revenir chez nous au chaud. Rien à dire sur la cuisine qui était bonne et le cadre toujours aussi orignal mais je ferai plus de réservation.

The food was rather disappointing. Not a lot of options, expensive and you don't get a lot. So you would think you would get something special, original or very high quality, but sadly that was not the case. The sushi pieces are not original, just standard and way too big. Who doesn't hate having to pick between the option to either have to try and bite them in two (which is clumsy, messy, not tasteful and ruins the full experience of the sushi) or have to try and get the full roll in your mouth at once, having the risk to look like a greedy, starving person who can't talk for 5 to 10 minutes. My partner even got sick after eating the food. However, the cocktails were good.
The only reason I would go back is for a drink and the atmosphere and beautiful location.
This good be such a nice, beautiful, popular and delicious place but you have to up your food game!

Ok sans plus. La nourriture est excellente, mais beaucoup de ratés au niveau du service : service parfois long, on n’explique pas les plats servis, les serveurs / serveuses qui finissaient leur quart de travail enfilaient leur manteau et sac à dos derrière le bar. Le menu est un peu faible également...

although the food was a bit pricey and it took some time for us to get the wine list, we were very satisfied overall from the event orange is the new wine. the matcha lava cake is to die for, i could eat 15 of those. special mention to the eggplant sushi, was very tasty !
the service was a bit slow but the restaurant was full. glad we sat by the bar instead of at a table though, the kitchen view is great. thanks for the great night !

Went on Halloween for the orange wine event. The restaurant was understaffed and service was very slow (plates ordered at the same time were coming with 10 minutes in between - and we were not sharing) . The food was good, but it's on the expansive side (10$ for a roll of six small aubergine sushi). Our waiter gave us a glass of wine since service had been so slow, which was a nice touch (thank you), but we still ended up going to our usual sushi spot to finish the meal, less pretty, but cheaper and as good (you are the best Sushi 4 saisons!!). Never say never, but I don't think I'll be going again.

The restaurant's interior design is beautiful, but all seating options are stools without any back support (no good if you're someone with a bad back). The food is great, and service is ok although nothing exceptional. We went there for their Orange Wine event, and they were out of 2-3 bottles out of 8 on day 2... that shows poor organization skills from their managers/owners. That said, their Orange wine card was very good (so at least they have good taste :P)!

Good sushi but nothing incredible and everything was on the heavy side (lots of mayo/fried stuff, even the Edamame was drowning in oil).
We were three and got seated at the far end of the bar with one of us almost turning their back to the two others.
Expensive for what it is but the decor is nice.

C'était ma première visite à votre restaurant. J'avais fait la réservation par internet (très efficace) pour 3 personnes. Mais à ma grande surprise, les tables étaient tous réservées alors on a du manger sur le comptoir sous l'arbre. Le comptoir est vraiment trop étroit et non fonctionnel. La grandeur des assiettes sont beaucoup trop grandes pour l'espace que nous avons sur le comptoir. Il n'y avait qu'un support à vêtements près de la porte de sortie. Pas très sécuritaire. Un espace sous les bancs pour y mettre vêtements et sacs aurait été apprécié. Ce genre de bancs est tout à fait courant au Japon et très pratique... J'avais choisi deux plats dans la menu spécialité soit: Le tartare saumon sakura et le thon Poke. Le goût était agréable mais les quantités étaient franchement minuscules surtout pour le thon Poke par rapport au prix demandé. J'en était insulté de ne voir que 5 minuscules cubes de thon pour et quelques gouttes de sauce 17$ !!!
L'ambiance et le décor étaient agréable et le service attentif. J'aurais apprécié un serveur ou serveuse asiatique plutôt que québécois par contre. Je vais au Japon une fois par année depuis 5 ans et je m'attendais à être surpris par un menu typiquement japonais mais tel ne fut pas le cas. Je vous souhaite une belle réussite dans votre entreprise mais je ne pense pas renouveler l'expérience.

Très déçue d'apprendre à notre arrivée que nous avions la table pour 1h30 seulement. Quand j'arrive au resto à 19h30, je m'attends à pouvoir rester le temps que je le souhaite. De plus, portions vraiment petites pour le prix, surtout le thon poke.

Overall, Blossom Bar was an average experience. The decor is very nice and the cocktails are good but the main attraction to this restaurant is its instagrammable cherry blossom tree. The food was okay and there was a lack of ambiance for a "trendy" restaurant on a Saturday night in the Gay Village. My experience was memorable, not thanks to the service or food but thanks to my friends. I won't be going back - not because it was a bad experience but because there are better places in Montreal for drinks or food at the same price.

In addition, the restaurant did not feel welcoming and was very cold since the air conditioning was blasting on us - this meant we had to wear our jackets inside. When we asked the waiter to turn it off, he did but sadly it came back on only 15 minutes after that.

We had a girls night at Blossom Bar on a Friday. Very pretty place and not too loud so you can easily speak to one another. Makis were good but overpriced. Service was extremely slow from ordering our meal to paying the bill, and they didn’t seem to be understaffed.

This restaurant/bar is just beautiful! The pink tree, the pink dimmed lighting, the menu...the beauty is in the details. The eggplant sushi were truly delicious, a perfect option for someone whi does not eat raw fish like me. Only downside: the servers took their time to check on us so we had to wait a while between every interaction, even though the place was not full at all.

Je donnerais un 5/5 si les plats étaient soit moins dispendieux ou s´ils étaient plus copieux. Annoncer un poke à 17,00$ et retrouver que 6-7 petits cubes de poisson dans un coulis, c’est vraiment exagéré. Pour moi un poké contient du riz, des légumes, du poisson... bref un plat beaucoup plus consistant. Sinon les saveurs était là, Noémie a été super agréable, nous avons eu une belle soirée!

Weird sitting arrangement. Interesting looking but I think it’s more of a bar with snacks and then a restaurant to go for dinner. Our food was average even though it was pretty. Service seemed a little noncommittal but not necessarily unfriendly.
