Toujours bon et agréable

Mes visites au restaurant Japon Sushi Bar sont toujours agréables. Le service est courtois, les sushis et makis sont très bons, que ce soit pour le lunch ou un souper. Je compte continuer à y retourner régulièrement!

Very bad experience.

Waited an hour and a half for our first course. We were using a group on and were definitely treated as if we weren't a full paying customer. We were served last after the entire restaurant. Not really our waitress fault but management.
When we brought up the long wait issue to the manager we were told "its saturday night, we are busy and you guys are using a groupon"

Great sushi and service, but some might consider it to be a little pricy. I really loved their tempura appetizer, it was hot and crunchy when it got to the table. Yum! The sushi is fresh and their plates are always beautifully presented.

We asked if we could return one car agin and have a desert instead( one which we were to share) The manger came over and said.. Absolutely not, we ordered a bottle .. This is what... more

The food was pretty good, though not the best I've ever had. I really did enjoy the special sushi rolls, though they were pretty pricey. The place looks nice and the service was good. I would say that this restaurant is a modernization of the traditional sushi restaurant (hope that makes sense). I would go back again, if I had a Groupon that is.

Would not return. Extremely slow service, and treats you differently if you have a discount voucher. Avoid unless you are willing to go without a groupon or livingsocial voucher.

Good and pretty quick for lunch
July 06, 2014

Stopped by with a Groupon $20 for $40 deal for lunch. Server was nice and polite and offered a few good recommendations. Tried the new salmon, shrimp and avocado tartar and it was excellent! Rolls are a reasonable size. For the price its OK, if you can get one of the Groupon deals it’s great.

The good: delicious sushi, great looking dishes, large portions, delicate flavours, try the squid sashimi and dumplings. The plates follow each other at a nice pace very little waiting
The less good ( NOT bad): slightly high prices (offset by quantity), sauces less imaginative
Service: everyone in black, young, clean, smiling and knowledgeable, attentive to details and close-by

The sushi is way overrated for this price. I do not understand why so many people are crazy about this restaurant.

Firstly, the rice used to roll sushi is terrible (for this price range, the rice is NOT acceptable), imagine a sushi that is a bit chewy.....

Secondly, just because the salmon, tuna, avocado, tempura, cream cheese, etc. are good in sushi, it doesn't mean you can randomly pick any... more

I know the place only for lunch. The chef is amazing. The food is fresh, tasty and presented with artistic creativity.

First off , I have to say that the decoration of this place is more than just nice.
Once you enter the restaurant, the fragrance of planted flowers breeze across your nose.
The look is based on a chic oriental decor, the contrast of the place was mostly red covered .
Second off, we had the chance to observe the preparation of our dish that kept us involved during the process. The seats and... more

Awful Reception and Service
November 11, 2013

They refused to honor my living social voucher because the site was down. Even after i came back the same evening with a printed copy of my voucher they would not reimburse me. Manager said she would and lied. They are very dishonest. Would never recommend a restaurant like this to anyone...thieves!

The food was good; interesting and tasty flavours but the reason I will never be going back is that the services was horrible. I went with 2 other friends and we had a coupon from groupon. I don't know if it was because we had a coupon but the waitress was seriously rude, slow and very condescending. We still ended up paying extra because we ordered wine ect but the service was just disgusting.... more

So, we had a voucher for this place and we love sushi and were really looking forward to it. We got there and it was already quite cold inside which i'm not a big fan of. The first girl who came to greet us said she couldn't seat us as she didn't know how as we had a reservation (?!).... more

Amazing tartare
August 06, 2013

We tried their tuna tartare on Japanese fried mint leaves it was the most amazing tartare we've ever had. Presentation and service was incredible. Original dishes. It stands out from the rest of the Japanese restaurants. Definitely we'll be going back.

The sushi was mediocre, borderline not fresh. The maki rolls had some tempura something it it and it was rubbery and tasted the oil. Really? chewy maki rolls? Scary! The special roll came with a special mayo on top, as often the case, but had no flavor. You may think that my taste buds were off somehow, but my wife thought it was just as bad. Can't be a coincidence...

It is ok, nothing really special here. Standard sushis even for a non sushi destination like Montreal. It certainly will impress those who know nothing about sushis. I doubt real sushi connoisseurs would be impressed.

Had dinner at Japon with my family on a Friday night in November.

It was quiet for a Friday night. The decor is very nice. The tables are rather small and narrow. Because of their design, when they put 2 tables together is doesn't make for a smooth or large enough surface to put the serving plates on. The cheap wooden chop sticks also clash with the refined decor.

I wonder how many of us remember the golden days of Soto in Montréal. Before it opened a chain of catering business (which ultimately led to its demise), Soto on St-Laurent was the forefront of avantgarde sushi in Montreal. It's been already ten years since then, the former chef from Soto is back here with revenge--- even more equipped with his ever so imaginative array of repertoire. Better... more
