    Started off a bit rocky, but they turned it around quickly. The service, music, was excellent. The Sushi was outstanding... i don't think I ever ate so much delicious sushi in one sitting. Overall outstanding, even the bill ;-)

    The manager was extremely unprofessional and unkind, from the booking of the reservation to the dinner itself. He was rude and extremely unprofessional. Even after nicely speaking to him, he did not do anything to fix the situation.

    Food is ok, pricey but nothing amazing. The music level was so high we could barely hear each other talking or the waiter for that matter. The waiter had to crouched more than once to talk to us about the menu.

    This place is a must if you love sushi. Not too expensive (ordered a lot and the bill came up to 200 with tax and 18% tip). Great quality fish and the perfect ambiance. I recommend getting seated in the lounge as it feels like a private room. 9/10 overall

    Absolutely abysmal service, from the hostess, to the wait staff, to the valet attendant (who demanded a minimum tip of $5/car, then swore at us when we only gave $3).

    We had reservations for the dining room at 7:30., arrived at 7:25 and were told that they had place for us outdoors on their heated terrace or In their Lounge. I reiterated that my reservations were for the dining room and thou there were approximately 12 seats at tables and 4 seats at the bar that had no one seated at them., they insisted that they had no availability in the dining room. We then sat in the lounge which is good if you want to have drinks but improper for a $300.00 dinner. Additionally., they only had one red wine available by the glass. I’ve been to the Westmount location which goes above and beyond when it comes to proper management skills and extremely respectful of confirmed and timely reservations!

    Desaster service ! My friend and I had to wave to the servers like crazy everytime we needed something, Wagyu gyoza came frozen when I let the service know she said “Ok” took the plate and came back with it without even apologizing or replacing the pieces we couldn’t swallow. Will never go back ! Expensive but 0 service 0 food quality

    We didn’t get the table we reserved. We were seated outside in the cold. Service was very slow. I had to ask for a menu twice. The salmon tacos was stale. It was crowded and very noisy. I would not recommend this restaurant.

    When entering the place, we did not like it right away. Low lights, everything organized to be "fashionable" and unbelievably aggressive music. The kind of stupid disco music so much in vogue in many restaurants in Montreal these days. A naive visitor could believe that Montrealers cannot replenish their stomachs without having their ears full of crap first, and being spared the burden of any civilized conversation. As for Ryu, it is a pity because the fish there is excellent. Definitely one of the best we ever had in the city. We really enjoyed the food. The 24 pc. sashimi assortment is, at 108$, a bargain. A better choice than the 12 pc. "premium" choice at 105 $. Nigiris were also great. The right "one bite" size with good rice and outstanding fish. The Kamikaze roll, a Montreal special, is sub-par, tasteless and too soft. Sake was fair but not great at 85$. Served a bit too warm without an ice bucket to keep it cool. Regrettable. The thing is that, in the middle of our meal, assaulted by the strength and the vulgarity of the music, my wife and I, seasoned food lovers, looked at each other in disarray with my wife aptly summarizing the experience: " What a dreadful place !" To those who would insist, I suggest to bring their own earbuds (noise-cancelling a must) and abandon at the door any serious ambition for any kind of vocal exchange. To be avoided.

    The food was amazing, and the service was without reproach. But the music was extremely loud, which made the evening a little less pleasurable. We had to shout across to have a conversation, and the music seemed to get even louder as the evening passed. It’s surprising in such a place that the musical ambience is so aggressive, when everything else is delicate, cosy, and the staff friendly. I would recommend to lower the music, people would not have to shout when asking questions or trying to understand what they are being told about the meal. Thank you again for the delicious meal.

    We had booked a birthday party and the reservation clearly says we have 2 hours for a party of 4. We had a bottle of wine on the way and a surprise cake, when the waiter said we had to leave since the table was reserved for someone else at 9. Even though our reservation was supposed to end at 9:30 since it started at 7:30 On top of that, the table right next to us arrived before us but were not asked to leave.

    For a hot summer night the place was way too hot. There was no AC apparently. The music is super loud, we couldn’t have a decent conversation. It was just like being at a bar/club. I prefer going to other Ryu locations.

    Excellent food, drinks and attentive service, only wish that the sushi chefs were less busy with takeout orders. Sitting at the sushi bar it seemed that our very long wait for sushi was because most of the food being made was going into boxes. Also note that the music is very loud (not unpleasant for me, but be aware it might not be a a good location for those hard of hearing)
