Big group handled very well. Small pates to be shared. All the dumplings super as is the shrimp tempura and filet mignon. Black cod also a great choice. All dishes are served with panache and cooked just right. Make sure you order enough for the table. Ask server for advice. Wine selection is adequate.
Bring a big wallet.
Worth a visit for food and atmosphere.

If you like taking bites and cocktails at the New York Four Season's Ty Lounge than Jatoba is your spot in Montreal.

Food is great. Cocktails sophisticated and all good. Trendy, vibrant and romantic place.

Enjoy!

came here for after dinner drinks and dessert. Why do the hostesses at these trendy places always give attitude? Friendly hostesses are much more pleasant. Anyways, after her, we got seated at the back bar, right in front of the chef who was very friendly and chatty, made up for aloof and uninterested server. Forgot my cocktail, but it was beautiful, had ginger in it, and La Bombe dessert, as cool as it reads and looks is not actually that good. Try the Japanese cheesecake instead. Still I love this place and highly recommend it.

Great food and excellent service. We had the sashimi platter, black cod, gyoza and shrimp and rice. Need to get a few plates because they are small. Wine and drinks recommended were perfect. Our favorite meal so far on our 10 day trip.

Love this place. The food is fantastic (often have the black cod and the king oyster mushrooms mixed in with other delicious dishes because they are sooo good). The service is excellent and in line with what you would expect with a restaurant at this price point. Pricey wines, they could improve a bit on that point. The ambiance is great. Nice music, not too loud, just right. Perfect for date night or business dinner. Highly recommend.
