Excellent customer service and a great dining experience for the family and I. We stayed at the hotel, and were able to obtain reservations at this busy place. The staff were attentive, the place very busy but wait time for food was minimal. We had...sashimi, makis and appetizers. Overall, very fresh and superb food! The quality was excellent and the temperature of the makis were perfect, unlike some places that serve it cold. If you want a quiet place, this is not it. This is a great place to get together with friends, meet up, have some drinks and eat some terrific food. Highly recommend!More

Amazing service overall...but make sure to book well in advance. Food was good quality and prices are reasonable. I would recommend the restaurant overall but wouldn't consider as a must-try. It's a good restaurant if you're looking for average Japanese food.

Food was fine but nothingI would rave about. Pretty standard sushi etc. main issue for me was the excruciating noise level. We could barely hold a conversation.

Quality is good. Just avoid choosing the chef’s combination because you’ll be eating ‘crab stick’ which is just flour, water and some (10%) fish. I brought it to the managers attention … only 4 sushi contained fish, the remaining 11 were rice and fish flavoured...flower. I was told they would break by me some sushi with ‘fish’ but after almost 1 hour nothing at the horizon. So I paid the bill and left…More

My wife and I had an amazing meal at Kyo Bar! Our server, Jess, was amazing. He explained the process for making sake and how to select the right one, and how to pair with the dishes. Overall the service was outstanding. The food was...outstanding and we enjoyed the atmosphere outside. We stayed until closing and didn't want to leave.More

A refreshing discovery near the heart of Old Montreal. Although on very busy Canada day, they found a way to accommodate our seating preferences, and very good service has been a trait throughout our dinner. The tapa style Japanese dishes and sushi were of superior...quality and presentation, and the price fair in comparison to Montreal’s. What more to ask for?More

We stayed at Hotel Place D'Armes and decided to try Kyo Bar which is located on the lower level of the hotel. We were not disappointed. The menu was varied, the food promptly served and it was well prepared and tasty. The best part of...the dinner was our server, Elizabeth. She took time to engage us at first and then later was able to answer our questions about the menu in very good detail. When she learned that we were heading to Quebec City after Montreal, she was able to provide us with some very good "local" information. Our dinner came at the end of a very trying day following an exhausting experience with the airline. Elizabeth's level of service and personality was just what we needed to put all of that behind us!More
