A word from Koi - Bryant Park
Rich earth tones of orange, red and brown impart warmth to the cool and tranquil space. Thin tapestries of translucent rose fabric are embellished with flame motifs and suspended from the ceiling, creating a separate seating area perfect for a light bite near the large front windows.
Famous for its unique and mouth-watering interpretation of Japanese cuisine. Upscale Japanese fare is given a jolt of new life through an innovative use of ingredients, resulting in refreshing and exciting flavor combinations. Crispy Rice with Spice Tuna, an addictive version of the classic spicy tuna roll, featuring warm grilled rice topped with a thick layer of cool, savory tuna. Baked Crab Roll, for which succulent fresh crabmeat is wrapped in a thin rice crepe paper dotted with sesame seeds and baked to perfection. Hamachi Fusion with Soy-Citrus and Truffle Essence all artfully plated by Koi’s skilled culinary team.

    great food. Service not so good. Felt so rushed. Waiter came back every 30 seconds to see if we wanted to order our meals. We couldn't just enjoy a drink before eating. While we were having appetizers, the dinner arrived so they insisted on taking the unfinished appetizers Food was great, but the waiters need to calm down!

    The food is delicious, but very pricey. Sushi is quite good, but overpriced. Great ambiance and a business lunch crowd so be sure to make a reservation (even with a reservation you might end up waiting a short time).

    What a wonderful find this restaurant turned out to be. We were looking for a restaurant close to the theater and chose Koi. We could not have had a better experience. Impeccable service, great ambiance and the food was delicious. We had the Koi crispy rice and spicy tuna and loved it. We highly recommend Koi and certainly plan to go back.

    Shared a Saturday evening dinner with my daughter and wife. The experience, as always, couldn't have been better. From the time we were greeted, Koi made us feel like we were the only one's in a crowded room. This has been one of our world favorite restaurants for years and the food continues to amaze.

    We had dinner with friends and the food was great. The sea bass was unbelievable and we all loved the lobster tacos. After dinner they did not harass us to leave and let us stay and catch up with each other even though we were not ordering more drinks or food. I'd recommend Koi to everyone. It is not inexpensive, but well worth it.

    Second time in a week. As with the first time dining here, the service was good and food was great. Highly recommend the crab and sweet shrimp sashimi. Also Koi's sake selection is nice, from sweet and smooth to strong and dry. The place is always packed with people, highly energetic atomsphere, lots of young and noisy folks.

    I organized a 30th birthday party for 7 people at Koi Bryant Park. Easy to reserve on opentable and when I called to talk through what to do for dessert for the birthday person, the restaurant was very helpful and accommodating. The night of the meal, the hostess and server were very helpful. The server helped select a variety of dishes, and directed us perfectly on the amounts. She was very attentive throughout. I had a great experience!

    Waitress was condescending. Food was SOOOO greasy on the outside and dry on the inside.( pot stickers) and the price was ridiculous ! ( $20 for 5??? REALLY ? ) I am not a kid, I'm in my early 60's and I have never been treated like that in a restaurant. A bit more respect is needed! I will never go back.
