Le restaurant est super avec les lumières tamisées . L’ambiance est géniale, très classe et conviviale pour une petite soirée entre amis. La nourriture est raffinée . Les prix sont assez abordables pour le cadre. J’ai adoré un des serveurs, Jess :) il nous a donné de très bon conseil sur les choix de nos plats et il est adorable ❤️. Les beignets Yuzu en dessert avec le lait concentré étaient la cerise sur le gâteau. En gros, c’est un restaurant à ajouter sur sa liste d’incontournables à Montréal.

It was my first time in Montreal and at Kyo. My server was Jess, very attentive to detailed, and welcoming. He was very knowledgeable about what food and drinks to suggest. I now know a bit better about the process of making sake thanks to him. he suggested a great sample of them. My soup was delayed in the kitchen, and he removed it from the bill. The quality of food is good, and the ambiance was ideal, but the service was the catch for me to come back.

Nice and sympathetic restaurant. Excellent service with a smile and even a touch of humour.

We had a plate of great sushis. The rice was just perfect and the taste awesome!

I recommend Kyo!

Clients were too drunk for the most part - on top of this the waiters drank shots as well which greatly hindered their reactivity since I waited 10min at one point to be waited on. The food was subpar at best. A macarons in a Japanese restaurant? And the worst macarons I have ever had on top of that? Big fail. A course was a salad with nothing particular or Japanese, oh wait no sorry except for the edamame! With only one selection of prosecco, that was also way too sweet to be a decent prosecco. Such a let down for the pricing. I cannot believe I spent close to $100 dollars due to the menu being set for valentines day. The only highlight was the sashimi (but still 4 sad little pieces). Totally disappointed. Disaster.

Someone in our group was allergic to shellfish and peanuts but not fish. We are grateful our waiter was making sure everything he ate was safe for him. However, our makis from our set menu were 90% vegetarian whereas everyone else had the normal serving of fish/caviar/shrimp. We understand how our friend had specific allergies but it doesn’t make sense to penalize the whole table for one person. It’s not the waiter’s fault so we didn’t say anything but the rest of us were pretty upset for going to Kyo for avocado/cucumber/salad makis. If we want vegetarian makis, we would have asked for it but we didn’t... In fact if we wanted that, we wouldn’t need to come to Kyo for them. We can make that at home ourselves.

We have been to this restaurant many times but this is our first time being disappointed unfortunately

Food was generally good, especially the pancake. The kaiso salad though has lettuce, the first time I have one in a Japanese resto. I found it bizarre. The Kyuzu tart was good but the Japanese cheesecake with fresh fruits was pretty average. But overall, it was great experience.

The yuzu tart was one of the tastiest desserts I've ever had in a restaurant. The service was amazing and very attentive. I found the vegetarian options a little underwhelming but my meat/fish-eating dining partner really enjoyed the sushi, beef sashimi and chicken wings. Gyoza were a little one-note for both of us.

I already have been recommending it to friends. I went for the Happening Gourmand tasting menu. Everything was so good, it will be difficult to decide on what dish to choose. The service was amazing. Wonderful place.

The only downside was it was a little noisy, so difficult to have a conversation. Also, we were sitting right in front of the door and when people would linger in the entrance while keeping both doors open, it was chilly.

But the staff was wonderful. The food incredible and it was very clean.

Thank you!
