    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "we waited for more than 30 minutes and nobody come to greet and serve water!!! we asked the server she said she will come and another 10 minutes! we sat at patio really bad"

  • "this is great Japanese food in an atmosphere conducive to business or pleasure. I have had lunch and dinner here and i love the place. Reasonable wine list."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Ki never ceases to be my go to place for entertaining international clients. The service is exceptional. The Sake Sommelier provides a wonderful education. The food is fresh, creative and delicious. We are never rushed. I've stopped ordering from the menu and let the chef surprise us ! It's a great spot before and after the hockey- baseball game. The valet service makes it an easy spot to leave the car. The bar is vibrant and great for post game libations!"

  • "Service was excellent. We were with 2 family members from Tokyo, who spoke highly of the variety of the menu and the quality of dishes. The one drawback was that both of our guest spoke Japanese and would have liked to talk to someone in that language as they discussed dishes, even though one is of Caucasian Canadian heritage and the other was a native Japanese citizen. The food was excellent. We really enjoyed the sharing of dishes and the ambiance of the outside patio."

  • "Consistently great with respect to food, service and ambience ... also has a notable Saki list which can be great to explore at dinner"
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "The food and service and ambience are all very good but the price is extremely high compared to other restaurants downtown. I would estimate that it is about 50% more expensive than other similar resaturants. I ill not be eating at Ki again."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "The food and wine are always great. The interior is beginning to look shabby. The sofa in the women's washroom looks so worn and filthy that I wouldn't touch it."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "We have been at Ki a few times for customer business luncheons, and it never disappoints! High quality sushi in a great setting, topped with excellent service."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "My niece and I were at your restaurant 2 days ago. We checked out your menu online and decided that we would try out your restaurant in spite of many who told us about Guu. So glad we chose Ki as the food was outstanding and the service excellent. Will definitely visit again on a special ocassion."

  • "We were warmly welcomed by our hostess, Brittany. We were then promptly and courteously ushered to our table by Fabio where our server Tapash was waiting with warm handtowels for my guest and myself. Excellent and attentive service by Tapash, and very enjoyable food served for lunch. Thank you!!"

  • "Excellent business lunch setting. There is something for both sushi and non sushi fans. The seafood special - the black cod - was cooked to perfection and delicious."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Excellent food and service. Sabin provided impeccable service!"
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "Great food, great service. Its definitely a more North American take on Sushi though. If you want a more Japanese experience this might not be the place for you."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Went there for dinner before a concert. Enjoyed their Miso Chowder, Glazed Chicken skewers, and Black Cod. Dynamite rolls and Spicy Tuna rolls were average. Beef Short Ribs were tough. Deserts Menu was uninspiring but they let us order Green Tea Ice Cream which was not on the menu. They got rid of the Trio of Cheesecake which was our favourite. Service was prompt and efficient. Enjoy our dinner though it was a bit pricey and portions were small."

  • "Every time I am in Toronto, I go to Ki. I learned about it as a recommendation from a friend. It's in the center of all the good places to be, the food is phenomenal, and the service is excellent. Can't get any better than this."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "I will visit again. Nice ambience, professional service, good food, good presentation. Comfortable tables, chairs are made for taller people...good lighting. It was my first visit, I will be back for lunch or dinner again."

    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "A favorite location that never disappoints. Service, food and location all fantastic. Continue to highly recommend."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "I go to Ki fairly regularly; I went there to take my wife for our 9th wedding anniversary since she had not been there. She loved the food. They really know how to treat you well. At the end of the meal, they brought out desert (on them) and gave us a hand written anniversary card. Great restaurant, I would recommend it to anyone. "
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "The Miso chowder used to call to me. It was just greasy this time around and missing that wow factor. Something's changed but i just can't pinpoint what. Server was nice."
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "I dined with my daughters before our 10K Sporting Life run the next morning and the server was outstanding - his recommendations were right on the money as my one daughter cannot have seafood or raw fish - the cucumber, avocado, wasabi dish was just like he said - all different flavours hitting you at different times! He also was very good at just ordering us the perfect amount of food. Third time at Ki and still loving it!"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "The food is excellent and the ambience is very nice - service is very good as well. It can be pricy, so we go for a special occasion when we are visiting Toronto."
    Dined on 5/9/2014

  • "Spacious restaurant, super delicious food, wonderful services and the waiter is so confident to suggest food and wine when asked. Nice touching surprise when the management team brought a birthday card and chocolate to my friends thanking him to share part of his special moment with them. "

  • "Service was very slow food tasted very good portions were small Waiter was great Seating arrangement not the best"

  • "Ki was recommended to us by a friend. We were not one bit disappointed with the food, service and ambience. It's definitely worth going and I would have no hesitation returning. The service was excellent."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "Great night of food, wine and gabbing. We were going to a concert and they respected our time lines. We had 2 additional people join us for drinks and the staff accommodated us immediately."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "Service at Ki was wonderful - from the moment I arrived at the reception desk to the surprise chocolate treats the hostess brought my guest for her birthday when she must have overheard me wishing her a happy birthday - neither of us asked for it. The food however was just so so. I expected more for the popularity of the place (it was hopping for a Monday night), the suits in there, and the higher prices - not your regular prices for sushi. And for a place that costs over $100 for two (no alcohol), I was surprised to be eating with wooden chopsticks that were not presented in the paper sleeve, but I'm sure came out of them."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "Great service, great ambiance, unique sushis and wine list. What more can you ask for? Highly recommend it."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Business lunch, ordered the raw platter from the lunch menu - very mediocre. Not sure how they justify their prices."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "The staff are extremely friendly and very efficient. Quite honestly I have not been a restaurant in a long time where I felt totally pampered - I cannot say enough good things about the service. The food was excellet and the presentation only added to the experience. The food arrived at a leisurely pace, we never felt hurried nor did we feel impatient waiting for the next dish to arrive. The restaurant's ambience was totally relaxing and peaceful; a truly enjoyable mea. Our daughter and her husband who recommended the restaurant have enjoy a few meals there and we shall return at the first possible opportunity"
