I love the fish here. It's very fresh and beautifully presented. Great for sushi lovers and also caters to those who don't like raw fish. Love the location on Cartier streets and the service is good too. Try the love boat or bento box.

I went to this restaurant on suggestion of a friend of mine. I'm not super expert in sushi, but I like to have a inner once in a while... At the Metropolitain they didn't blow me away with flavours, but the rolls were ok. I pointed out that in one of them the tempura inside was cold, and the waiter... More

I am a big fan of sushi, and Quebec is not the place with the most variety of restaurants sushi-wise. But, Metropolitain is always the place to go. Everytime I want to order sushi or eat there, I am fully satisfied. The boats are just incredible, it's fresh, full of variety and the price is more than fair for the... More

This place was OK. I usually think of sushi as fast food so it was more over-priced than I thought. Had a good time though. Nice ambiance inside. The server recommended we try the most expensive thing.... no thanks! We picked from the hand roll section of the menu. We sat where we could watch them make the sushi.

We visited this restaurant after a cold day of snowmobiling and dog sledding. We were greeted warmly as always here in Quebec. Our servers were informative and the sushi was excellent. My husband is very picky and even he remarked that it was very high quality and delicious! We did not think the price was very high given the location,... More

Warm friendly restaurant. The service was excellent and the food was even better. The tuna was fantastic, I highly recommend. Me and my colleague were looking for a quiet place to discuss business. This was perfect and i look forward to going back.

Food is excellent, fresh and tasty. Service attentive and very friendly. However, a bit on the expensive side.

Friendly staff that served us in english without any attitude. The food was really good and fresh! I love that it does not cater to the tourist crowd and is not a tourist trap....The prices are very reasonable.

The lunch menu is perfect and includes a soup and tea. They have the freshest sushi in town. A classic ! At night, make sure to order a love boat and let yourself be guided by the sushi chefs !
