The food didn’t taste like traditional/authentic. Sauces on beef sashimi & porc belly need some work.

Came here for a late night dinner on their patio and the location was great! Once we sat down, we hadn’t been given any water or gotten greeted by a server in about 20 mins. Despite this, our server was very friendly and the food came out quickly! Food was delicious, although the sushi wasn’t as eventful as I had hoped.

La terrasse est peu intéressante: elle est coincée entre le trottoir et une rue passante. Les tables y sont minuscules. Elles sont correctes pour prendre un verre, pas pour y manger.
Service excellent. Belle carte de vins.

So we went to kyo with the family after four months of isolation like everyone else. We went there cause we love the food and the food did not disappoint however the AC didn’t seem to be working and it was Uncomfortable to eat that way. The terrace was rained on so no possibly to continue our meal outside.
The staff told us that the AC has been an issue since the beginning of the summer. Shame on the owner for letting the staff work in this type of heat and allowing customers to eat while dripping.
Too bad, cause I always loved Kyo. But the way the owner treats his employees and customers should not be tolerated. I work in the service industry as well and I would never let my employees suffer this way. We Will not be going back.
Ps: the servers were sweet but you could tell that the heat irritated them as well. Especially if you add the hole mask situation on top of it.

Ambiance is great , food is tasty and fresh and the service is excellent but no air conditioning in summer, warm water and sometimes it can be noisy as people are talking loudly, overall I do recommend this place as I enjoyed it.

Good place to get sushi and have other dining options for diners who don't like sushi. I would recommend this more for an after work place than for a romantic getaway or special occasion. The interior is updated and the service friendly and attentive. The sushi is quite good but the other choices, including cocktails are just good, nothing memorable. Portions, including cocktails are a bit small for the money.

Fantastic food, sake and whiskey. Fantastic service as well, even with the special rules in place for COVID-19. I would have liked to see more consistent social distancing between the tables however.

The staff is welcoming, charming and great advisors as to what To choose. Alexandra explained everything, a young man chose the perfect cool sake. We liked the decor but not the music. Far too loud, they lowered it after we asked. It did not fit the beautiful Japanese decor and the subtle flavours of the specialties. A more mellow background would be so much more pleasant.

I was looking for a top notch Sushi place for our 32nd anniversary. Kyo Sushi came highly recommended on TripAdvisor...They were SO right!!! The place is nice and in the heart of Old Montreal, the staff was FANTASTIC!! Kudos to our waiter JESS and his Team for the amazing service. As for the food it was Simply PHENOMENAL!! Prepared quickly to perfection. I highly recommend Kyo Sushi to anyone looking for a cozy culinary adventure.

Waiter was inattentive, and the kitchen was not on point. It's a shame, as we had high hopes after reading the reviews. I guess COVID-19 had done some serious damage

Le restaurant est super avec les lumières tamisées . L’ambiance est géniale, très classe et conviviale pour une petite soirée entre amis. La nourriture est raffinée . Les prix sont assez abordables pour le cadre. J’ai adoré un des serveurs, Jess :) il nous a donné de très bon conseil sur les choix de nos plats et il est adorable ❤️. Les beignets Yuzu en dessert avec le lait concentré étaient la cerise sur le gâteau. En gros, c’est un restaurant à ajouter sur sa liste d’incontournables à Montréal.
