The white dragon roll and piquillo veggie roll were AMAZING! Enjoyed a nice dinner with my son. Everything was great, service excellent. We loved the ceiling, a Kool swank place.

Ryu is such an amazing restaurant, I highly recommend to everyone! Quality food for reasonable price and great service always !!!!!! I wish they would open another one outside of the downtown area because it’s so hard to find parking

Chose the omakase. Chef’s choice. Good decision. Fish was very good. Final rolls rich and complex. Worth the cost.

FORCES : excellente nourriture, très ambiancé, bon choix de musique, je pense nous avons été servis par le manager/gérant et puis il avait un très bon service et très belle énergie, beau concept/déco

À AMÉLIORER : Le reste du staff n'est pas très souriant

Je conseille fortement ce restaurant, très heureuse d'avoir pris une réservation la bas et je compte y retourner.

We were on holiday and stopping one day in Montreal. This was a really great spot! The quality of food is really good, fish is fresh and you can have special new version of sushi. The place is really nice and staff super nice.

C'est ma 3e fois au restaurant; chaque fois un grand succès. Et pour moi, et pour mes clients et ami(e)s invité(e)s. Je souligne aussi l'architecture et le design de l'endroit. Un gros 👍

The sushi was excellent, however the sushi menu is limited. It was expensive, but the quality was great

The service was ok, but really seemed to be focused on impressing the cool, young and hip customers.

The bad fish smell was everywhere.
I asked for some rolls without spicy mayo but I was told that it was impossible cause it was already prepared. I don't understand: sushi is not supposed to be prepared at the moment?!
I ordered basic rolls and I asked so fast the bill cause I needed to run away from that place because of the smell.

The sushi was great! However, what was on the menu was not reality. All but 1 item we ordered was actually available. We were forced to substitute the uni, wine, and toro we actually wanted. This may have been an isolated incident as the manager was very gracious in explaining the situation. We will be back next time we are in town.

Terrible service: waiter didn’t know the menu and did not take proper care of the table - missing items, never asked if we needed anything else. Otherwise food was very good.

They completely ignored our reservation and notes, took forever to serve us (gave part of our food to the next table), and never tried to make it up to us (despite knowing we were there for a celebration). Very fresh fish. Will never go back bcs of the service.

If you want Japanese food, there are a ton of other places that are better. This place is expensive and the quality isn't that good. Best miss this place.

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.
