Horrible service! It took us an hour to get 2 chicken skewers... we were starving the whole time. The sushi was mediocre at best. Very disappointing and not worth the expensive prices.

One of our friends hurt his back so he didn’t come with us. We feel really sorry for him cuz he just missed a great meal. The black cod is the most popular dish, which tastes delicious with the special sauce. The chef’s sashimi is fresh. I will recommend KYO to all of my friends.

Our first time to Kyo. We were in Montreal for the Jazz festival. This was a good location in Old Montreal to stop for dinner after a night of listening to jazz. Cozy, romantic atmosphere. Servers were very attentive and explained the menu. Loved the tapas style concept. We chose 5 items. One was better than the next. Also had a nice wine selection to choose from. This is a must do when visiting Montreal.

Service was disappointing. Food was ok. We had to wave the waitstaff to fill up our waters. The edamame was overcooked (soggy) and oversalted. The sashimi salad had excellent quality fish. However, the kitchen forgot to add the dressing. It took too long to find any waitstaff, and we waited so long for the food to arrive.

This is my go to sushi restaurant in the Old Port. Chef will go off the menu for me at least when the request is manageable. Their bibimbap is a meal by its self and delicious.

One of the best restaurants in Old Montreal! The service was great; our server explained the different methods of ordering (we went with the chef selection for sushi) and was very attentive. The food was absolutely delicious and was unique to other Japanese restaurants. 10/10!

What made us happy was the variety on their menu.
Lots of items for everyone.

The server was very informed n gave us great advice.

We were a group of 8 n sort of accommodating everyone’s preferences was a challenge.

But it went well.
We left happy n satisfied.

Sushi, Bibimbap, Spicy Edamame, Agedashi Tofu, tempura were all tasty

Nice vibe to the place, food pretty good. Down side: our server was useless in terms of suggestions. When faced with dozens of japanese sake names, how does one pick? Was no help to select sushi as well. But the rest of the staff was quite friendly.

Can not say enough about how good this restaurant was. The food is top notch, service was great, ambiance was nice. Has a trendy and traditional feel at the same time. Bryan was our server and was friendly and very helpful with recommendations from the menu. We dined here 2 years ago and definitely wanted to return. It did not disappoint - was at least as awesome as our last visit if not more. Ordering several small bites is the way to go. We sampled the rainbow sushi roll, edamame, chicken wings, shrimp, pork dumplings, and black cod. All fantastic and unique dishes. Every time we have been here the place is bustling. Reservations are a good idea. Would dine here once a week if we could.
