Great place the ambiance was awesome!! ,Food was awesome, the service was good and ever bite was good, the wine was good, just the seating was a bit not to my liking. Next time I’ll choose the Bar. But overall experience is good, can’t wait try the other locations

Unfortunately the waiter wasn’t great. He messed up our drinks and didn’t really know the menu well to answer questions.

Very fine (excellent!) salmon, tuna, cod, and all sushi-grade tasty treats for your palate. This is world class sushi, sashimi, and wagyu beef. Good service overall apart from a few quirks. Nice cocktails that match the ambience. The wine is an afterthought somehow, the bottles are either opened for too long or not enough and it is a bit of a miss. I’d give a five star if the menu was a little bit more balanced in offering both the high end exquisite but small *and* plates that resemble a meal. Right now it’s great food but a little bit too focused on the small. And the wine is not great.

La musique est beaucoup trop forte et envahissante.

Le service a été lamentable, nous n'avons laissé que 15% par rapport à 20%, ce que nous laissons quand nous sommes satisfaits. Par contre, les busboys étaient impeccables.

The place and vibe was very nice, a bit too loud
The food took forever, we got our hot dumplings before our salade, the makis were small, not rich enough, food was okay I had higher expectations
Our waiter was nice but we barely saw him
If we asked anyone else who passed by, they would say it’s “not their job but they will tell our waiter”, it sounds better to say “sure let me get your waiter”
I had reserved in dining area and they tried to seat us at the bar and eventually made us feel they found us a table in the dining

Incredible food , amazing place. Only thing I would improve is the music volume since the place was already very loud. Other than that , it was an amazing experience and would defiantly recommend it to anyone.

Expérience globale peu satisfaisante puisque nous avons dû négocier pour garder notre table. Le temps accordé à table ( un peu plus de 2 heures) n’est pas en ligne avec la rapidité du service. Heureusement que notre serveuse a été plus compréhensive que l’hôtesse. Finalement, compte tenu du prix chargé pour la nourriture et le vin, on s’attend à vivre une expérience plus complète et plus harmonieuse. C’est très frustrant de se sentir pressé.

To experience the Ryu factor you need to try the signatures ( which are great but expensive) otherwise it’s like any other regular sushi shop…overall it’s was good. Service was very good, and no noise at all .

This was the second week RYU was open and I am trying to be fair with my ratings as the restaurant was short staffed. We walked in at 8pm and only left the restaurant at 12am. Our waitress Maxime was fantastic and we totally understood that she was managing more tables then she probably should. Yuri was absolutely fantastic her smile service and she is very energetic. The biggest issue was being in a restaurant for 4 hrs. Each course took between 30-45 min to receive which left us super hungry in between each course. I believe one of my cocktails was forgotten and I had to ask again as it took 20 min. Overall I would probably come back but I think it’s best to give it a few weeks or months to be refined and have more staff because by the end of the night me and my GF were so tired

Very good food but the wait between dishes was way too long. When the food arrived it was well platted and delicious but when you’re waiting 45 minutes between dishes it’s just far too long. We had reservations for a party of 5 for 6:15 and only left after 10pm as we had waiting so long for everything. Granted it is recently opened, hopefully they’ll work out the problems in the kitchen/service as the ambiance was wonderful and the food was great.
