Très bons choix. Les ramens sont ordinaires mais les sushis sont variés et bons. Le prix est incomparable pour ce genre de plats en rapport avec la qualité servie.

Very bad service. They kept missing items in our orders and at the end, our group was accused of having someone leave without paying. We checked with everybody and that was clearly not the case. Bad management, bad customer service, bad attitude. These people have no idea how to do business.

Sushis très bons et frais, sont arrivés rapidement. L'eau était température pièce et les tables étaient très collées l'unes de l'autres. Le serveur arrivait à se faire comprendre malgré sa difficulté avec le français et il ne nous a pas chargé les quelques sushis (3-4) que nous avions pas aimé. Le service de table était très rapide, peut-être même un peu trop, mais c'est peut-être parce que nous sommes arrivées vers 8h. Finalement, rapport qualité/prix excellent.

It is the 2nd time we visit and we took the all you can eat : tempura shrimps and lots of rolls : Avocado, crab, mango, cucumber, shrimps, chicken, etc...We tried the Chicken don, Chicken brochettes and Hand Rolls : Dragon eye, etc...

Overall food was good but service was very slow (could be improved).

The location is great (downtown Montreal).

Nous sommes allés manger à ce restaurant pour le midi pour changer de notre restaurant habituel et nous n'y retournerons pas. Entièrement d'accord avec les précédents commentaires.

Le service est vraiment déplorable, pas de sourire, désagréable quand on demande quelque chose surtout le gérant, lent pour servir et les serveurs ne parlent pas bien le français (je ne parle pas anglais et portant la serveuse insistait lourdement à me parler anglais pour m'expliquer quelque chose alors que je lui répétais que je ne comprenais pas, heureusement ma conjointe parle anglais et a pu traduire "une feuille par table, pas une chacun").

La nourriture est bonne mais sans plus. Les plats "chauds" sont tous arrivés froids ou limite tièdes. Aucun effort de présentation dans les plats. En descendant payer j'ai remarqué que sur le plan de travail des sushi-man une assiette remplie de sushis avec un film plastique dessus donc ils préparent à l'avance certains mets et par conséquent ce l'on vous apporte n'est pas fraichement préparé.

On ne peut pas consommer son propre alcool. Le gérant nous a dit qu'ils avaient une carte des vins. On l'attend toujours ... On ne nous l'a jamais apporté.

Tables très rapprochées donc endroit très bruyant, presque obligés de crier pour s'entendre. Les chaises sont trop basses par rapport à la table alors que la banquette est à la bonne hauteur.

Les seules choses positives sont le large choix pour un buffet à volonté le midi pour un prix correct de 15,99$ et la possibilité de pouvoir payer par carte de débit ou de crédit.

En conclusion, il y a vraiment mieux comme restaurant de sushi à volonté et nous allons continuer à aller à notre restaurant de sushi habituel.

This restaurant has quite a good food, but the way the made us pay taxes on tips is very disgusting and as if they don to give us the choice to pay the tip the way we want. And i used to go there twice a week but today was the last time coz when i complained about the hair in my plate the manager was shouting.

This USED to be my favourite sushi spot downtown. For the past 4 years I have gone once a month for lunch or supper. However, I noticed a few months ago that they had new staff. It's no longer the smiley and friendly service I came to love. I'm assuming the restaurant has switched ownership or management. The sushi is still good, but the staff is SLOW and very RUDE. I recently had lunch there and the service was a mess:

-host didn't bring us to our table, just pointed in the direction of where we should sit
-didn't take drink orders....after 10 minutes I got up to ask
-didn't come by to take our food order....I got up and brought it to him after 25 minutes of sitting
-half our order never came
-it was not busy at all

My friend and I were so put off by the service that I did not think a tip was warranted. When I paid, the woman at the cash called me out for not tipping. I told her why and she freaked out on me. I used to leave generous tips at Crescent Sushi because it was amazing service. But, I don't believe that a customer should have to stand up and walk over to the surly waiter in order to place an order....TWICE.

Crescent sushi is a solid all-you-can-eat sushi restaurant located in the downtown Montreal core. The two floors of seating offer a comfortable place to meet with friends and family, their modest drink selection and extremely varied sushi menus ensure that there is something for everyone. I've been to Sushi Crescent several times and have always been pleased. It does well for AYCE sushi (although the quality doesn't compare to a la carte's). The sashimis are worthwhile, the maki rolls (especially their dragon rolls) are well worth trying, and the octopus ball is a quirky treat :)

I would NOT recommend sushi cresent
I would consider myself not a picky person nor I rarely complain about service or quality of food at restaurants. I can 100% say that I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone. My boyfriend and I had visited the restaurant; we weren’t from Montreal and decided to give it a try. We walked in and saw that it was decently busy for dinner time and thought that was a good sign, we should have left. We were seated by a rude man, which I am convinced that he is the owner of the restaurant. He sat us to our table by pointing to the opposite side of the busy restaurant and when I went to the table beside it because it wasn’t completely clear, he yelled at me saying NO!! and pointing to the next table beside it. Excellent first impression, off to a great start! As most all you can eat sushi restaurants , there was a main menu with everything that you could order, it was one sided, very large and awkward and laminated. The menu size in relation to the size of the table was somewhat awkward, but it wasn’t at all a big deal for myself, I just worked with it.. We finally received an item that we had ordered, after sending back things that they tried to give us that was another tables multiple times. I went to grab a roll in the center of our little table and the menu was still in front of me…as I was still taking a look.. Discussing the options with my boyfriend. Due to the size of the table and the size of the menu, some of the items were put on the menu or near the menu by myself or the other servers. The owner comes by our table, walks by our table and yells NO! pointing at the menu on the table and shaking his head and some muttering to himself in his language. He proceeds to RUDELY and loudly tell me that ‘MENUS GO ON SIDE ON TABLE’ he began to move into my personal space and move the food that was placed on or near the menu, which was right in front of me. He proceeded to move each item, although I had told him that I got it, and then he moved the menu from under me and placed it on the side of the table. Then he VERY loudly said menu on side of table. I found this whole ordeal extremely rude, there was no reason for him to enter my personal space, move each plate off of it, speak to me like a child..the table and his menu was spotless and regardless if it had even been a little bit dirtied, a swipe of a wet cloth could fix it right away. Throughout my meal at Crescent Sushi, I watched this man do the same thing to

Il y a un problème avec ce restaurant, premièrement lorsque l'on s'est assis on nous foutu un espèce de menu en plastique sur la table..on a interpellé la serveuse car nous voulions manger des sushis à la carte, une petite soupe et sûrement une entrée à deux...ha là elle nous a apporté différents menus..pas fort comme service..on prends pour acquis qu'on est là pour le ''all u can eat''à 25.99$..mais non!! désolé...Prendre une petite minute à la serveuse après s'être assis aurait déjà été un bon début et un peu plus professionnel non??
J'ai pas aimé du tout le décor, je suis allé aux toilettes, il n'y avait plus de papier pour s'essuyer..mais 2-3 gros rouleaux de papiers à mains alignés à côté de la toilette et..ben oui j'me suis torché avec du papier à main!! Que voulez-vous!!
Mon ami a dû venir s'assoir sur la banquette à côté de moi car sa chaise était trop basse..bizarre...
J'aime pas quand on me sert des baquettes de bois les plus cheap sur le marché..!
L'entrée de fruits de mer tempura à 11,99$..c'est quoi ça..!!??
Un gros tas de riz servi avec 1 calmar, 4 crevettes, 2 petits minis crabe cake qui étaient pourtant moelleux et avaient bon goût mais nous avions déjà déja 20 mcx de sushis..pourquoi dans ce cas ne pas nous servir une jolie salade d'accompagnement avec ce plat...Un gros manque de raffinement..les sushis étaient coupés tout croches, et j'ai eu vraiment peur quand j'ai vu les 8 mcx de sushis Boston avec 3/4 de pouce de caviar orange électrique...on avait une petite de sauce soya à notre table qui a soudainement disparue..ha! Comment ça?
Bref la prochaine fois pour manger des sushis je vais m'assurer que ce n'est pas un endroit de ''Buffet'' à sushis
J'oubliais quand nous sommes venus pour payer j'ai demander à la serveuse de nous apporter la facture..mais elle m'a dit que je devais faire la file à la caisse..il y avait déjà 7 jeunes qui attendaient tous pour payer avec cartes bancaires,quand ce fut finalement à mon tour la demoiselle m'a demandé si c'était complet j'ai répondu non et j'ai pas laissé une cenne de pourboire..Too bad c'était la goutte qui a fait déborder le vase :-

I've been to many sushi places before, but this place has the WORST service ever! It took them nearly 40 minutes to prepare our order ( which was shrimp tempura) and they gave us no priority whatsoever! If you would like to get your order at the time you're actually eating, then I DO NOT recommend this place!

Ce restau Sushi vous offre un large choix, et la carte est la même le midi et le soir! Sushi pizza déliceuse, sushi frais et service impeccable, je recommande pour les grandes faims de sushis.

Le décor est pas mal du tout, c'est un vrai décor de restaurant, romantique et design. Une belle terrasse est même ouverte l'été.

decent maki sushi but my vegetable soup had no flavour and hardly any vegetables in it, mainly noodles.
However, i would go again just because the buffet price is worth it, you just have to know what to order.

Service: waiter 1 and 2 were very nice, however a couple of waiters literally just throw your plate on the table and speed away. I know your busy but 2 more seconds to place it nicely won't hurt. We also got food we didn't order.

I showed up on saturday at 12 and got a seat right away, however there was a big line up around 12 30.

I was surprised to read so many negative reviews on one of my favorite restaurants in Montreal!
I was never a sushi fan until I tried the sushi here at S.C! I don't know why people complain about the service, most of the time my friends and I go there during the business lunch hours, and only have an hour to eat, and we have never had to wait long! I don't know if it's because we're regulars (we go in a party of 2-3 once a week every week), or if we've just gotten lucky this past year.
Sometimes the new waiters might be slower than others, but it's never been so slow that we've had to wait forever until someone picked up our order - we immediately call our waiter and get our food within 5 minutes tops!
I do agree, however, that I absolutely despise being seated way at the back of the main floor - it's right next to the kitchen, the smell of soy sauce suffocates the clients stuck there, and the staff is uber noisy. Either ways, I don't care as long as I get my share of sushi for the week!
Some recommended items:
Crab meat salad
Crab salad
Dynamite roll
Dragon eye roll
Salmon rose
Shrimp tempura & onion rings
California roll
Mango tango

I have to admit though, that somedays the food is better than others, but even when it's not at its best, it's still pretty darn awesome. Going there again this Tuesday - can't wait!

Service: Horrible

There were few things that went right at our dinner experience at Crescent Sushi. For Montreal standards, the sushi was above average. The portions were good but the fish wasn't fresh.

The service however was absolutely terrible. First, we were sat down by waiter # 1 near the extremely noisy kitchen where the waiters were gossiping loudly. We were then given only one menu to share between three people. When waiter #2 came to take our orders, he was disinterested and unfriendly. We asked 3 times for our drinks until we got them

Two of our orders came within 30 minutes with a 20 minute gap between the first two. The third order did not come and 20 minutes later we were given the wrong order by the manager (not either of our first 2 waiters). We notified them of their mistake and they responded by leaving without any apology or explanation of any kind to gossip for long period of time at the cashier with the other waiters.

They made us seem as if WE had made some sort of mistake in spite that our order was very clear and we witnessed him writing it down previously. They finally brought the third order another 10 minutes later on the same plate with with half of the wrong order removed.

They were neither humble or apologetic and waiter #2 left the dish, with attitude, on the side of the table purposely ignoring and avoiding eye contact instead of placing in front of our friend who had waited 50 minutes for two rolls. After that, it took them 10 minutes to notice that we were done and a 3rd waiter came by after ignoring our looks and serving the tables around us. There was also a female waitress who was very dismissive about everything.

We asked for our bills 3 times before we got them. We went up to pay at the cashier and the cashier demanded a tip and when we didn't give one they continued to gossip amongst themselves. I cannot remember the last time I didn't tip but this restaurant's service...was non-existent and did not deserve any tip whatsoever. Not once did they come by to fill our water glasses or ask us how the food was. They made us feel unwelcome and removed our dishes from our tables without asking or speaking to us at all. The attitude of all 3 waiters and the manager was extremely unacceptable. Please consider this before you go to this restaurant. It is not worth your time or your money. You are far better off going somewhere else.

sincerely,
3 otherwise mild mannered sushi lovers who have been to 40 restos combined.

I used to be a good customer of Crescent Sushi. Until now.

While the service had always been somewhat decent, I recently noticed a change in their management and in the way they handle clients. The last time I went with my fiance, it went like this:

We came in for the lunch time special and had to wait a long time to get served. We waited patiently. When we got out food, many sushi pieces had been done in a rush and were falling apart. Once again, for a sushi buffet, my expectations aren't extremely high so it's no biggy. But once we were done with our first order and ready to ask for a second, we had to wait over 20 minutes to get a waiter to acknowledge us. In the meantime, tables around us kept getting food. Finally, we were able to speak to a waiter who told us at once that "the kitchens are now closed" and that "we got the last call already". Both false statements; the tables next to us kept getting food and we had never been warned of anything, merely ignored for almost half an hour. The waiter slipped away quickly and it took an extra 10 minutes before another waiter asked us if "everything was alright" since we had just been sitting there, ignored completely once again. I asked for the bill, explaining that it was no use to stay because we were refused food after waiting over 20 minutes and never told about that mysterious "last call". The waiter went to speak to her manager (or assistant manager), a young slim man in a pink shirt, and he made it very clear with gestures and a sour facial expression that I could see even in the distance, that he didn't give a damn. She came back and communicated to us once again that "we got the last call" and that there was nothing to be done. So, resigned, I asked again for the bill.

It took another 10 minutes before we got the bill and could leave. We got one small order in total and ignored the rest of the time. So much for a buffet.

I'm sorry Crescent Sushi but... I think this was our last call at your place.
