The food there is amazing. Everything fresh and it tastes so good.
The service is fantastic and the restaurant is very nice.

I gave high noise rating only because if you are on the terrace and it’s a busy night there are a lot of cars since it’s one of main entrances to the old port. It’s not too much of a big deal tho

Food (sushi) was good with the exception of the soup that am not a big fan. Service wasn't great, when asked for forks, they brought them while holding them in hand, without wrapping them in any kind of napkins or tissues at least! Come on folks, even without COVID it's not acceptable.
Btw, too noisy if you sit outside because of the neighborhood.

It was a bit cold and the traffic was noisy but the food was great and our server was AMAZING. Jeff or Jess.. we did Sake Bombs for my birthday and he was an absolute delight. We’ve both been to Kyo before and will definitely come back, but now we wanna come back for the server haha sorry can’t remember his name. ❤️❤️❤️

We had such a nice dinner. Our waiter was fantastic, the food was delicious and came out in a timely manner. The price is a bit higher than we normally spend on sushi, however, it was worth it for the experience. This is the second time we have been to Kyo while in Montreal, and when we come back, we will be visiting again!

Service un peu lent mais c'était un dimanche soir... possiblement compréhensible
Choix de musique manquait d'authentisme du Japon - ceci aurait augmenté le sentiment d'immersion Bar Japonnais
Poulet pané à l'ail excellent!
Manquait de jus dans le bibimbat - possiblement en mettre un peu plus dans le contenant ou en offrir un 2e lorsque c'est servi
28 morceaux de makis un peu petit pour une assiette à 45$ - et ils goûtaient un peu tous la même chose.... il faudrait qu'ils se démarquent un peu plus d'un à l'autre
Le service des plats (nous étions 8) était un peu pêle-mêle. Une personne reçoit son assiette et elle est seule à manger pendant environ 20 minutes.

The entry of salmon sake was too much citrus and the soya way over salted ( i love salt ) but this was intense and we couldn't taste the sushi unfortunetly!

Le service était bon, cocktail excellent.
La sauce sur la côtelette de boeuf était excellente par contre beaucoup de gras dans la viande. Les rapinis qui était servis avec avaient la bonne cuisson. Sachant que les rapinis sont amers, il aurait fallu ajuster l'assaisonnement des rapinis en fonction de sa forte amertume ( peut être plus de sel dans l'eau de cuisson)

The sushi was fresh however we were unsure of what was in majority of the dishes because we were unable to read French and they did not offer an English translation for the menu.

Very slow and bad service ! It took the waiter more than 30 minutes to come take our initial order for drinks and starters. We then got our first plate 30 minutes later. Our main course was served another 30 minutes after we placed our order. Service was very slow even though restaurant was not at max capacity. We came in at 8h30 and walked out at 10h45 with only 3 plates ordered.
Food was not extraordinary and definitely not worth the price !
Very bad experience ! Never going back !
