The food was great
Ryu is a place to know! Service is quick, food is delicious and price worths it!
Excellent service and food quality - by far one of the best I’ve had in Montreal.
Everytime I go the food is amazing, the service top knotch and the quality of the miso soup amazing! Always a great choice for any occasion.
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.
Always a pleasure to eat at RYU - food is fresh, creative and delicious. Service is exceptionally friendly! Nice ambiance as well.
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.
EXCELLENT food. Highly recommended. The only comment would be to maybe lower the music a little bit at dinner time.
Food was great. Interesting and beautifully presented. Very fresh seafood. Pascal, who took care of us was first rate. We will be back.
Great service and very good quality fish. There's always more available than what's on the menu.
All outstanding. The chairs we had were for tall people and far from confortable. I would certainly suggest to change them.
Great food and great service/staff!
Music was too loud
Portions a bit small when I came here
The food was amazing, the service was good, ambience was nice.
Absolutely amazing food and the price was good! Will define be back again!
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.
Excellent place for diner, with very sushi and sashimi assortement.
The staff is nice and provides interresting advise.
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 food is good, presentation is excellent but the chairs were very uncomfortable - maybe on purpose?
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.
Great food, beautiful restaurant, but waited almost 30 minutes for our food. Unacceptable for a weekday lunch
Wow! Extremely good sushi! The qualifying the fish in unbelievable... The sushi literally melt in my mouth. I took Maki, Sashimi and Nigiri, with a drink. Everything was delicious. I strongly recommend this restaurant.
food is so fresh - you cannot but love this place - they are the best in Montreal!
The Servise is terrible ! They asked us to go out after 2 hours and half , apparently they had no more space for the other people so they made us leave . Terrible .
Great food for a reasonable price. Server was friendly and sommelier helpful. Music was too loud.
Nice restaurant in the heart of Montreal. Service was good as was the food.
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.
It was great
Fantastic. The food original was so fresh. Hard to beat this place for sushi.
