    The food and drinks were great. Service was good, but our server came back to our table after we paid to ask if the service was okay. We said it was, they replied that since the tip was low (it was reasonable!), they were worried that the service wasn’t good. I’ve never been questioned about a tip, it was very awkward and inappropriate. Other than that, though, it was a good meal.

    Delicious and unique rolls, gorgeous presentation, cozy ambience and outstanding service. We had a perfect evening here in celebration of our twins’ 13th birthday. Our server, Julia, made the night even more special with impeccable service and a special birthday treat with sparklers to finish the meal. Merci Kyo and Julia!

    Amazing food, service and incredible desserts. The place is lovely and always great to visit. However, the music was out of control, a very random playlist that was not only too loud, but also all over the place, not smooth at all, did not match the ambiance. Jess is an exceptional waiter and we enjoyed our dinner very much!

    What an amazing find! Came her to celebrate my wife’s birthday. No issues making a reservation. Our server Jacob was absolutely fantastic. We let him take the reins and choose our food for us. Sashimi, sushi, noodles, sake bombs, shrimp… all excellent! 10-10 would recommend. If you’re into sake, the have a great selection to choose from, one of the largest I’ve seen in a while. Fresh food and excellent service.

    If you are in Montreal and you like beef short rib, literally stop what you're doing and book a table here. I've eaten this dish more times than I can count, in many restaurants all over the world, including at 5 star restaurants, and also prepared by Michelin Star chefs, including prepared by a top 10 world-ranked chef. I've enjoyed this dish in Argentina, Texas and the midwestern US where they claim responsibility for raising the best beef. I've enjoyed it in locations where they claim their particular dish is the best, such as in Chicago, New York, Denver, Rome, London. Of course I've had Angus, Alberta (maybe this was Alberta), Wagyu, A5 Kobe, and others. NOTHING beats this. Absolutely the most tender, juicy, flavorful meat I've ever had. This chef DEFINITELY knows what he's doing in that kitchen. (They brought him out of there so I could tell him this myself, which I did.) If he doesn't have an ownership stake in this restaurant, he should get one or go somewhere else. UNBELIEVABLE quality. I'll add that the service was amazing and the drinks were delicious and the other food we bought was excellent as well. (I think it was 7-8 different dishes that we tried - all delightful.) BUT THIS. Go get some. Make no haste.

    Cocktails are fantastic. Food is pretty good, overpriced for what it is and the quantity but very tasty. The sushi rolls are the items to get here they’re fantastic. Service is incredible and the vibe is great.
