Great place for drinks and tapas or a full dinner. Very lounging and cozy atmosphere, music not too loud and great background music, service was excellent, food was excellent. Tried a bit of everything and was not disappointed. Price is adequate for the quality of the food and service I received. I strongly recommend it.

Nourriture excellente, aliments d'une fraîcheur remarquable, superbe présentation. Il s'agissait de notre première visite et le serveur a été hyper gentil, il a pris le temps de nous conseiller certains plats. Nous savions à l'avance que nous n'aurions que deux heures pour souper cependant, nous aurions aimé demeurer un peu plus longuement pour commander d'autres plats. La prochaine fois, nous réserverons plus tard afin de faire partie du dernier service :) Super endroit!

I have already recommended Kyo to several friends. This was a second visit and I can't wait to go back again. The food is fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. The staff is courteous and very friendly and will accommodate dietary restrictions. A must when in Old Montreal.

This was the best meal of our stay in Montreal. The salmon and scallop spring rolls were fresh and delicious. The udon noodles were absolutely outstanding. We ordered a second bowl. We also felt the old fashioned drinks were perfect. Excellent staff and service. We would have loved to have tried Kyo earlier so that we could have visited more than once. So many menu options to taste.

Food and service was great. We had 7 people and asked for them to choose the meal for us and it was a good selection and good portions for sharing. They even accommodated a gluten allergy very well at the last minute. I would highly recommend.

Dinner for 6 Monday night. Food and service were excellent. All the waiters were fun and good. We didn’t need to ask for our drinks to be refilled because they were always there despite it being busy. They were able to adjust the food by spice level and change some ingredients without trouble. We had chicken and beef and pork gouyza, yaki udon, and sushi. All was excellent.

Presentation and quality of the food was very good. Restaurant is quite noisy making it difficult to have a conversation. Service was good but we did get the feeling that they were anxious towards the end of our meal to turn the table. Overall, a pleasant evening.

Have sesame seed allergies, chef made sure everything was made without it, very nice of them!

I really liked my experience and will go back for sure when in Montreal !

Worth it, if you enjoy sushi and such, it’s one of those restaurant that you can’t miss!

Le menu dégustation est beaucoup trop cher et franchement, il faudrait préciser clairement sur le menu que ce n'est que pour une personne, parce que la surprise n'est pas agéable lorsqu'on reçoit la facture de 200$!! Quelques plats sont vraiment intéressants, mais le prix est boosté parce qu'on est dans le vieux Montréal certainement, ça ne vaut pas du tout ce que ça coute.

Although a bit on the expensive side, Kyo provided an amazing evening for my husband and I, with great tasting and fresh rolls as well as a very trendy place to eat out. Make sure to reserve a table as they were very busy throughout the evening. You wouldn't want to be turned away!
We had a great experience, made up of very attentive service and so much flavor in the food we ordered. Make sure to order their donuts for dessert. I can not even explain how delicious they were!
What a great night we had. If ever back in Montreal, we will make sure to return.
