Yum. Great food, drinks and service. The eel was a particularly delightful dish. Okonomyaki with truffle oil was very nicely done. Highly recommend for a chill but delicious dining experience.

I was in for lunch last week and it is best to arrive early if you don't want to reserve, before the place fills up. There is the tucked away second floor patio and inside the restaurant is nice too, very cozy. I had the...cheese brochettes with beef (cheese wrapped in a thin covering of beef) which were very tasty, and a Japanese crepe that had crisp cabbage inside and half the crepe I ended up taking hame, so their small plates aren't that small, and ginger beer was gingery and refreshing.More

We came here without booking and were extremely lucky to benefit from a no show. We were a party of 4. After being seated we were promptly given water and a drinks order taken. We had a MR. POPO cocktail while the server explained that...it was a tapas style restaurant with Japanese food. We were given recommendations of certain dishes, but was offered a 'tasting menu' to fully experience most of the food on offer. The tasting menu was about $45 per person. All of the food was full of flavour and extremely enjoyable. The food was fresh and well seasoned, along with perfect ingredient combinations. My favourite was the black gyoza and pork rib. All the pictures I've added show every dish included in the tasting menu. The evening was so enjoyable and we were looked after throughout. We topped the evening off with a sake.More

A friend and I recently had an amazing lunch at Biiru restaurant in downtown Montreal. The food and the service were both excellent as was the ambience in the restaurant. Between us, we ordered the Black Gyoza (pork, shrimp and black mushroom rolled together), Veggie...Gyoza (veggie ravioli with Gyoza sauce), Candied Salmon, Karaage (fried chicken, yuzu and black pepper mayonnaise) and Pokuribu 2.0 (glazed pork ribs). The Candied Salmon, and Pokuribu dishes were absolutely amazing and a real highlight. The Veggie Gyoza and Karaange were excellent as well. We ended lunch with a shared serving of Matcha Passion Cake - extremely tasty, This was the first time my friend and I had been to Biiru but we will be back. The food experience was amazing!More

I think so far this is my favorite Japanese restaurant. I had the suika, watermelon salad, salmon bonbons, salmon with spicy caramel and the unagi yakitori, eel bbq, all delicious and very original. The service is super, everybody very kind. Loved my Hotie cocktail. Thanks...all!More

I enjoyed the food : the cold ramen salad was tasty, the spicy salmon tartare also (although there could have been more salmon), the macha cake with passion fruit mousse and crumble was surprisingly good. Overall very happy with my choices. Portions aren’t always very...big so depending on your appetite you may want to buy more than one thing. Nice spot even if I find it a little expensive for lunch (ended up costing almost 40$).More

Described as “Funky Japanese izakaya dishing up traditional small plates & drinks from cocktails to sake & soju.” and I would agree. Popular so again would recommend reservation. I had a few small plates and matcha cake for desert washing it down with a Sapporo....All good. Service was quick too. I sat at the bar, not sure if that makes a difference. Small downside.. as hip as the place is, I'm sure not everyone enjoys staring at the waiters underwear with the so often see low hanging jeans younger people feel comfortable with. Get a belt please. But that won't spoil the place for me and I will come back. Actually tried 2 days later but couldn't get a seat.More

The place is usually quite busy and not very spacious, I recommend to book in advance. The have a nicely decorated patio as well. They offer a selection of mostly Japanese dishes and a good selection of cocktails/beers. We were three people and decided to...share all our dishes following the suggestions of the waiter. Every dish was nicely presented and very tasty, the quality was undeniably high. Of course, you do not get street-food prices for that, but we were all very satisfied. Strongly recommended!More

The food is excellent... But...you had better wear bright red clothes, bring a couple of flairs and a whistle with you ... they also don’t honour reservations at dinner time... staff don’t care! Just like the honey badger!
