I have nothing bad to say about my experience at RYU! The food was amazing, the sushi served traditionally as it would be in Japan (small rolls). All the fish was extremely fresh. Our waiter, Francois, was attentive and knowledgeable, he steered us in the right direction in terms of what to order and the perfect amount to order for 2 people. There was another waiter too that would come by our table - he was also great. Lastly, the ambience was 10/10, noise level perfect, good music and everything was reasonably priced for the quality. Do yourself a favour and go here!

The food was very good but we waited 30 minutes to be seated even if we had a reservation. Our food was also very late to arrive even though many of the new customers were being served.

This meal certainly was a highlight for us. Not only was the service really seamless and the fish incredibly fresh and expertly handled, the art of making good rice for maki is a thing in itself. And the team knew how to cook and roll that rice perfectly. I could appreciate every grain and it complemented the fish without overweighting the roll or the nigiri. The cocktails are so delicious and perfectly balanced. I cannot say enough about this amazing experience. Thank you!

I was worried about the quality of wine at the restaurant. I called and asked if they had a corkage fee. I was told that they had an excellent wine list so they did not allow outside wine to be brought into the premises.

Upon ordering, I was told that they only had on red wine by the glass. It was a Pinot noir. I was worried about the quality as many restaurants open a bottle of Pinot and still serve it the following day. Pinot oxidizes in 12 hours so it is not good the following day. The waiter suggested that I need not worry. There would be no charge if I did not like the wine.

They brought the wine, poured 1/2 ounce into my glass and asked me to try. That is the oldest trick and I should have caught on. You can’t smell oxidized wine with only 1/2 ounce. I said that it was fine.

After he poured the rest I realized that it was oxidized. I returned the wine.

I was still charged for the wine because I said it was fine during the taste testing.

Terrible business practice. Trip advisor will get a review.

While the food is good, fresh and nicely presented, the price of the sashimi is astronomical, the price of the maki's exorbibant, given their size. Only for high-end customers.

The sashimi and maki are fresh but we need to ask the waitress to change our plates after appetizers and sashimi. The buzzer was not understanding that plates and chopsticks need to be take away first before placing the fresh ones. It’s incomparable to authentic Japanese restaurants’ waiters & waitresses.

Prompt and friendly service with cool vibe. Menu had lots of really great options for nigiri, sashimi, rolls and platters with options to add in more rare types of fish. Great cocktail list as well. Great date spot and incredibly fresh fish with perfectly portioned sushi.

This restaurant is VERY expensive for what it is. Though the food is pretty good, paying 30$ for lobster maki is insane. 10$ for a very small amount of Japanese wasabi… insane x 2.

Right next to our table was a large speaker that was was blaring out music. So loud.

The waitress, Max, was very nice.

I would recommend this place if you’re into showing off that you have money and some class. But if you’re a sushi lover, you’d be better off eating at Tri’s or Saints.

The food was really good, especially the chef's specialty. However, the service was really lacking. Dishes were delivered in an unorderly fashion such that we were all eating at different times and there was always someone at the table with no dish in front of them. At one point the waiter asked if he should bring us the bill when we were still missing some of our dishes! The waiter apologized and even brought complimentary sake, but this kind of service is not what I expect from a restaurant with these prices.
