This is our second visit. I think the food has changed. Everything is sweeter than before and the portions are smaller. We don't like our food sweet.

Disappointed. Saw lots of 4-5 star reviews on Google, so I was expecting something much better than average. Had some sashimi, the California dream maki, Rainbow maki and a Ryu Poke. It was alright, nothing wow. And for that standard, I guess it makes it quite expensive. I guess I had too high expectations.

Nothing compares to Ryu in Montreal, this is place in my top 5 in all the restaurants I have been to, ever. Friendly staff, gorgeous new place and the food... the food... heavenly, period. Going back again, and again.

Great sushi - best in the city. Service was a bit disinterested, forgot to order our cocktails, and told us the "Jack Sparrow" was not available, until another server walked by with the same dish. The notable exception was the sommelier. The sommelier was extremely thoughtful, engaged, and chose an excellent wine to pair with the meal.

Would definitely return for the food, but the service needs polishing.

Great food. Very bad service. Waited 15 min for waitress to take our order. Tried calling her a few times and she completely brushed me of. Then she claims she is not our waitress!!! What the hell. For a $200 lunch maybe you can work on your service a bit

I’ve been several times and love this place so I have mixed feelings about my last visit. My review is solely based on my last visit with new guests that I invited to celebrate a birthday. I was informed that there is restructuring at the moment therefore my comments are not to negatively indicate that customers should beware of this restaurant, however to inform you that this was my only bad experience and if this “restructuring “ is the reason of my bad experience, then a further restructuring is required as this is probably my gf, friends and my favourite restaurant and we would hate not to come back... I will definitely be back on my own next time prior to inviting new guests with me in the future.

I am a regular, so as usual, the best sashimi in Montreal...but pricy. Great service by our waiter. The only complaints are the leather chairs along the wall were so uncomfortable for my girlfriend, we had to move. Asked the waiter if others complained and he said 50/50, which I appreciate the honesty, so as not to make my girlfriend feel bad about being so sensitive.

Restaurant was in a smaller place and food was great. We worried that moving to slightly bigger premises would change quality of food and service. Well it did, it changed for A LOT better than before, which we didn't think could be possible. This is some of the best sushi we have had around the world. This is by far our best sushi restaurant in Montreal.

The Ryu staff had told us when we dined at Ryu 2 months ago that they had ordered high chairs which had not yet arrived, however they still did not have any high chairs at this visit. Our 1.5 year old therefore had sit on the banquette with us and knocked over a bowl of soup, scalding my husband who now has a red mark on his leg. I was really disappointed with the service received.

Some of the best sushi I've ever had, fresh and melts in your mouth! Perhaps a bit on the pricier side for the quantity you get, but given the quality it is a minor quibble. The service was a tad slow and the server did ignore my wife and daughter when talking about the special, a definite no no. Otherwise I would have given Ryu 5 stars.

We showed up 1.5 hours earlier than our reservation time. We were well received with immediate seatings. 2 adults did the Omakase and a la carte for 1 other adult and 2 children. Each dish was served with nice presentation. Service was very attentive and explanation of the sashimi we received off the chef’s menu. I would not say it is the best sashimi I ever had but every fish was super fresh.

Probably the freshest and highest quality sashimi in Montreal. The wagyou beef was phenomenal. The new location is a big improvement and the sake sommelier was very helpful. Server could’ve known a little more about the products, as we had one in our company that is dairy free, which I had indicated on our reservation. Also indicated on the reservation, was the birthday for one of the attendees. Apparently nobody read the notes. All in all a delightful dinner. I am leaving the server issues to early start up of the new location. A bit pricey, otherwise I would go there more often.

Sushi tasted amazing, and the cocktails were alright too. However service was very slow, getting the waiter’s attention was difficult, and it was even harder over the extremely loud music. We asked for the music to be turned down twice to no avail. Some of the makis that are specialties weren’t as good as the standard ones in the menu, which made it hard to justify the extra price. All in all, a great place to eat, service could use improvement

The quality of food was apparent. It is a very laid-back environment, which might throw off US patrons who are used to speed and efficiency with every meal. But for us it was a nice change of pace.
Unfortunately they serve endangered bluefin tuna. But you can request they don't serve that with the chef's choice meal.
Highly recommend the kamekazi roll.

We enjoyed our meal. The service was quite slow which was ok, however it did take us about 20 minutes to recieve our drinks after placing our original order with 2 different people.

We also found one bone in our Sashimi order. However, the fish was very good.

Nothing to rave about, the rolls were at best ordinary. The service was good, they made an error in one roll, and when I made the remark they made sure to bring another one to my specifications.
