Good food. Hardly any options for vegetarians though and the restaurant wasn’t keen to make something simple and veggie that’s off the menu. Service was good and “by the book” but nothing extraordinary. Worth a visit but I wouldn’t make a repeat visit too soon..

Very much enjoy the ambiance and the service at this restaurant. The sushi is consistently good. The specialties are the best. I find the wine prices are very much increased. More than double what you pay at SAQ.

Japanese sushi - totally different from the usual rolled sushi you find in most restaurants. I don't like sushi and this was unbelievable. Each plate arrived that looked like a work of art. The plates were perfectly prepared. It was an exceptional meal. Highly recommend...More

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
