Great food!
However, the bar was a bit close to the chefs (a bit too close than 2 meters)

Honnêtement j’aurais été mieux de me commander du sushi shop à la maison.
La nourriture était correcte sans plus.
le service = pas de service
Des extras pour absolument TOUT
Cela n’en valait pas du tout la peine !!!
Allez y si vous voulez des sushis basic a un prix exorbitant 😊

This was probably the best sushi I’ve ever had. A beautiful outside dining experience due to Covid. The waiters were so attentive and informative. We started with the seaweed salad and moved onto 3 different rolls. A must-try if you’re ever in Montreal!

Malheureusement, ce n’est plus qu’un restaurant de sushis ordinaire. Le service n’a jamais été très performant (du moins depuis les rénos et changement de style) mais là c’était très approximatif dans l’approche. Beaucoup de bonne volonté et d’attention mais peut-être est-ce l’inexpérience d’une nouvelle brigade post confinement? Côté assiette, je présume encore une fois que c’est la situation sanitaire qui impose un menu plus restreint et donc plus classique, dont la créativité est absente. Bien exécuté toutefois. Fraîcheur au rendez-vous. Pour (bien) moins cher par contre, on a la même qualité dans des petits établissements ailleurs en ville. Dommage. On ira essayer le nouveau Ryu sur Richmond quand il sera (enfin...) ouvert. Je sais... COVID... 🙄

La qualité du poisson est exceptionnelle et le service est très gentil. Nous partons régulièrement de la Rive-Nord pour manger au Ryu et c’est toujours un grand plaisir gastronomique. La carte des vins est courte et l’offre au verre pour les vins rouges n’est pas suffisante. Bien qu’il soit plutôt inhabituel que l’on boive du vin rouge avec des sushis, nous étions accompagné d’un ami qui ne boit que du vin rouge et il a été difficile de trouver un vin à son goût. Merci pour la belle soirée !

Great ambience! Good service. The sushi is good too! But I have had better experiences to compare to this one so that is why I gave 4 star. No green tea because of covid which should be looked into. They are not using pots because of sanitizing issue but that should be an issue pre Covid :) I would say green tea is a must in a sushi restaurant.

INCREDIBLE FOOD AND PRESENTATION! Honestly, some of the best sushi I’ve ever had....to be honest, I think this was better than Nobu in DC and San Diego.
Definitely try the tuna platter that they feature; amazing experience. And their cocktails are so light and lovely!

Ryu on Peel street is the best sushi restaurant, fresh and delicious ingredients whether you’re having sushi or a poke bowl.
The staff is attentive and friendly and make great recommendations.
The ambiance is very nice the interior design is beautiful, the location is perfect for downtown business or pleasure dining experience.
I would highly recommend.

Amazing sushi! Fantastic service! We ordered five rolls between the two of us, a couple glasses of Riesling, a mojito, edamame, and their take on a s'mores for dessert. Everything was wonderful. We were seated right away. The restaurant is beautiful and the decor is really unique. Great value for what we got! ($150 before tip for 3 glasses of wine, a mojito, edamame, three basic rolls, two specialty rolls, and dessert.) Go to Ryu!! You won't be disappointed.

They were out of their salad, did not have the right ingredients for a simple Cosmopolitan, and forgot to bring our miso soup. Very haphazard service. Will not go back.

I had booked through open table and specified it was for a birthday. The hostess who greeted us asked as soon as we walked in whose birthday it was and then wished my husband a happy birthday. At the end of the dinner he also got a birthday cake on the house. That was a great touch and we really appreciated the gesture.
Also Ryu is hands down our favourite sushi restaurant in town.

Qualité incroyable des différents sashimi/sushi/plats. Nous avons opté pour le menu dégustation à 8services et c’était remarquable. Par ailleurs, les seuls points négatifs sont le service par le serveur qui ne semblait pas remarquer ma présence. Il a aussi renversé une grosse flaque d’eau sur la table et après quelques secondes de réflexion où il hésitait à l’essuyer ou non, il a décidé de faire semblant que rien n’était arrivé et est parti( sans l’essuyer). Par contre, l’autre serveur qui s’occupait de présenter les plats était irréprochable. Beau restaurant. Il vaut mieux s’apporter une veste en hiver, car il y a un grand coup de froid dans tout le resto dès que quelqu’un ouvre la porte ( certains clients avaient leur manteau d’hiver sur les épaules).
