Trop de friture dans le Menu Happening Gourmand. Nous sommes sortis du resto complètement bourrés. Serait mieux de viser sur la qualité que la quantité. Le service était par contre impeccable. Cocktails très bons.

We ordered tasting menu. I was a bit disappointed because I expected more sashimi or sushi makis. However it only include 1 Maki... But I guess for the price $55 per person it is really reasonable. We r three and we asked for 2. It's a lot food. It's just personally I prefer more raw fish! So we ordered a 10pc sashimi plate

Thanks for the feedback. We hope to see you soon. If you ever want to get the tasting menu once more, inform your waiter that you prefer more raw fish. There are a few things we can change!

We were seated near the entrance door and it was a very cold winter day. When asked to move us further away since the restaurant was almost empty, they refused. Then, we were treated poorly for the rest of the evening.
Food quality was very poor, not good sushi, even the edamame were not well made. Won’t return.

Kyo Bar was highly recommended to us by many Montreal Locals & it did not disappoint. From the moment we walked through the door we felt the restaurants upbeat energy. We were greeted by Jade, who could not have been more welcoming and accommodating. She made some great recommendations on the menu & was incredibly sweet to our 2 daughters. Our waiter was attentive, gave us great insight into the menu & made sure we were taken care of all night. The food 100% hit the spot, had great flavors and what was exactly what we were craving that evening. We will definitely be coming back on our next trip to Old Montreal.

I often stay in the area when visiting Montreal but for some reason always overlook this restaurant. On this visit, I made a point to give it a try.

While a nice addition to my restaurant rotation while in Montreal, I can't say I was blown away by the experience. I definitely want to give it another try however before coming to a final conclusion.

I dined at the bar and the service was great, as was the cocktail. I ordered several dishes and found the presentation to be very good but the food simply good. I think that the value paid is fair but I also want to leave feeling fully satisfied with my purchase when dining.

We had a good evening here, with delicious food and good service. This was in fact our second visit during our recent trip to Montreal... the first was an outstanding experience, with brilliant service by Phillipe. Also, on our first visit, we had the set menu which was superb in all respects... we should have ordered the set menu again on this visit.

Our table for 2 was just beside a very loud large group so for at least half of our stay we couldn’t really enjoy the environment. Some of the menu items were delicious such as gyoza dumplings, spring rolls and okonomiyaki. The braised pork was tender but extremely salty. Dessert (doughnut like) was too big so it was undercooked (deep fry made it look good but the pieces were not thoroughly cooked)

We may give it another try at a different table and with the menu items worth coming back for while exploring others

Thank you

I was on vacation and did the tasting menu for one. The amount of food they brought me was definitely for 2 and way more than I could eat but everything was delicious and the service was great. I did the sake pairing as well and while I wasn’t 100% sure what to drink with which course it worked out pretty well.
