Endroit exceptionnel pour toutes les occasions pour un diner ou souper. Un restaurant haut de gamme à ne pas manquer. Felicitations pour les présentations et le goût unique de leurs plats de sushis.

Good quality fish and innovative combinations. A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for.

Good sushi, great presentation

Sho-Dan is definitely one of the sushi places that you just have to check out. The sushi I've eaten from other restaurants have gone worse and worse, good thing Sho-Dan still remains to be a high quality sushi restaurants. It's expensive, but worth the price for sushi lovers.

We're so glad Sho Dan is back with the new "distanciation" format. Having Romeo prepare his signature dishes himself as the sushi chef is a bonus!

I am astonished by the exceptional solution to isolate the tables in a very elegant, safe fashion and without disturbing the perfect visibility of the restaurant. I could appreciate they were able to allocate a large number of tables and always keeping the distance and isolation necessary to feel safe, protected to be able to enjoy sumptuous food in the most elegant setting with impeccable service. Whoever designed the acrylics and placed them in Sho-Dan restaurant has all my admiration and respect, outstanding job Congratulations.

Took a very long time for waiter to take our order; it also looked as if we were a nuisance to him. Very ordinary service not befitting a restaurant of this stature. We also waited a long time to get served for the dessert part of the table d’hôte. Unfortunately there was a terrible draft each time the door would open at which point the stench of cigarette smokers would come into restaurant. Not cool that it was mostly the waiters smoking right outside the restaurant. So not impressed by overall experience.

We were given a corner table as we had requested which was wonderful. Service was friendly and professional but a bit slow - but we were there at an extremely busy time. Overall the food was excellent and we had a wonderful time can’t wait to go back on our next trip to Montreal

Awful customer service just when you enter the door. Instead of the staff to help you put away the coats they just told me where to go whilst my gf and the staff member waited for me - weird. Either staff takes cares of the coats OR don't offer. Service was like on a conveyor belt - almost zero interaction. Just put food on the table and left. Food itself was bad. Halibut was dry, sashimi salmon was old (probably 2 days old as the corners were already quite hard). Starter (salmon tartar) was actually not bad. Dessert was ok. Overall, the place is bad and we won't be coming back. Its not a restaurant as their food belongs to maybe shopping mall at best. What a shame, we were excited for this.

Sho-Dan went above and beyond to ensure that we had a very special evening celebrating my girlfriend's 35th birthday. The ambiance was classy but not stuffy, with a live jazz trio playing all night. The food was creative, well-presented and very tasty. Finally, the service was excellent. They even brought out a special dessert with candles for my girlfriend, based on my reservation alone and with no further prompting. I will definitely be back for this delicious culinary experience right in the heart of downtown Montreal.

Service was ok, not amazing (bit slow at first, but after it was good). Food was also not amazing, maybe my fault for ordering the chef's selection of sushi/maki, but there were far too many pieces that contained deep fried food.
