When in Vegas
Everything was fantastic, with the exception of the Brawl that broke out during the middle of our dinner. That was ridiculous.

Happy Hour had great appetizers
Happy Hour had great appetizers and drinks for a very good Vegas price. Waitress was slow and didn't offer water, but her support staff helped take care of us. I would go back next time I'm in Vegas.

Koi is fantastic!
We had an absolutely fantastic time. The place is so beautiful, and the staff, from Armando, to Fernando, our waiter, to Chef Tim's amazing creation was all just off the HOOK! The lobster tacos were delicious and the baked lobster on California roll was awesome. We also had many other delicious creations and finished up with a palette-cleansing Ojai Pixie Tangerine sorbet, which was the perfect finish. Many thanks for a delightful evening and we'll be back!

Not so happy about getting
Not so happy about getting hit with $40 charge for a 5 piece toro roll. it was light on fish. The food was excellent but I wouldn't go back.

Best Sushi in Vegas
Always a great experience here. Sushi is excellent and innovative! Beef short rib dumplings!

The service, food, and ambiance
The service, food, and ambiance was great however, it took my dinner party and I too long to be seated. We did not get seated until half an hour past my reservations which is simply ridiculous. The server made up for his pleasant service. Thank you.

Great food, but super quick pace
Picked Koi to be the dinner for a bachelor party and was not disappointed. The food was fantastic, the staff was helpful and attentive, and the drinks were well made.
The one curious element was the speed of the service. We were a party of seven, our final bill was 550. But we were in and out of the restaurant in about 50 minutes.
The restaurant was probably about 3/4 full from what I could see. Our reservation was for 8 pm on a Saturday night.
At no point did the staff appear to be pushing us out the door, but the pace of the food service was very fast as they brought new rolls out fast on the heels of the previous plates. As a result, we each only had one drink. Not complaining, just surprised.
I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Everything here was nigh onto
Everything here was nigh onto perfect. The drinks were great. The salad was great. My short ribs could not have been better. My wife's ahi was excellent and cooked perfectly. Our dessert was a chocolaty delight. And I wish you had spell check on this. Service was prompt, friendly and well timed.

This place was great. The food was great and sushi was to die for. I recommend the miso crusted black cod or kobe beef. The only slighty negetive part was the noise. The lounge is attached to the dining room so it was very loud. I thought it was going to be a little lore intimate then that. But once you got use to it, it wasn't bad. The music made for a fun enviroment. Overall this place was amazing. I couldn't have asked for a better time!

We booked Koi for dinner our first night as we were staying nearby and saw some good reviews. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. We shared the creamy rock shrimp appetizer, which was scrumptious. The portion was very generous & enough for a light meal for one person. I had the black cod entrée and my husband had the sea bass special. Both dishes were very elegantly presented & delicious. Portions were just perfect. Pricing reasonable. The staff were friendly & accommodating. The noise level was pretty high with pounding house music from the bar area. If you want to talk, request a booth on the back wall where it's not too loud. We enjoyed our meal and would not hesitate to recommend Koi to all.

Excellent, excellent, excellent....
The food and drinks were excellent, the ambience is very posh and the service was phenomenal. I highly recommend this restaurant/lounge and this will be a place I will come back to when I am in Las Vegas.

The overall dinner was good..
The overall dinner was good.. service was Fab... but whhat really got me and my husband was the bartenders there ...After we had dinner we decided to sit at the bar and have one more cocktail, and the bartenders went out of there way to let us try the drinks before we boought them and they were super nice and helpful... we loved it.

Great group dining
We had a group of 10 Beachbody coaches that wanted to get out and have some sushi while we were in Las Vegas for a convention. The service was great and the food was delicious. It was also very quick considering there were so many of us.

Top Notch Sushi Restaurant
This was my fourth time here and it was just as good as the first. The food, service and atmosphere is amazing. Definitely will return again.

Excellent place to go
We celebrated our anniversary at this restaurant and it was fantastic!
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We always come here when in Vegas. Great sushi and great ambience.

Great Service and close to Theater
We had a group of 6 for a Bachelorette party and I called ahead to pre-purchase a bottle of champagne for our arrival. The staff and events manager were very attentive and responded right away, sending me their champagne list. Our server was excellent and super friendly. We shared a bunch of sushi and I don't eat seafood so I was happy to find a beef roll and veggie roll on the menu and both were absolutely delicious. The cocktails were great and the energy was really fun, perfect for getting pumped up for a night out. The restaurant & ultra lounge are right next to the Peepshow, which is why we chose to eat there. We went to the show after dinner and decided to come back to Koi for some dancing in the lounge. All in all, a super fun night!

The food and the service is
The food and the service is the best . Our hostess, Robin, was very helpful in describing the menu selections and addressing our needs . I highly recommend this restaurant.

Excellent Food and Service
This was my wife's and my first trip to Koi, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The unique cocktails were delicious, and our friendly server's recommendations were spot on.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great place!
The sushi options were creative, really delicious and the presentation was nice. The service was good - friendly, alert and attentive. We were there celebrating a birthday, so some equally creative and delicious dessert options (other than mochi ice cream!) would have clinched that fifth star for Koi.

We were a group of 9 for my mom's 60th birthday party and we had a very nice time. There were a couple of things that could have been better though. A light was burnt out above our table and the restaurant is already quite dark...we couldn't even see the menus! We had to use the flashlights on our phones to read the menus. The other thing was the loud music. I believe it was coming from the lounge on the other side of the restaurant and it did not "go" with the ambient feel of the main side of the restaurant. It was quite loud! Other than those two things though...the food, the service and our overall experience was wonderful! We would definitely go back :)

Went for restaurant week.
Went for restaurant week. The edamames were cooked perfectly with just the right amount of salt. The kobe potstickers were good but nothing special. The spicy tuna on crispy rice was good. The miso black cod was soft and buttery, no knives needed. The sushi omakase had a nice selection. To our surprise the cheesecake was light and fluffy and not heavy. We only saw our waiter twice, once when he took our order & once to bring the check. However, the wait staff was very attentive in flling water and tea and bringing out the entrees.
8/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
The food was excellent!
The creamy rockfish tempura was delicious, with just a hint of heat. The miso bronzed black cod was cooked to perfection, and the Koi cheesecake was so interesting and different from traditional cheesecakes that it was memorable.
My wife enjoyed her spicy tuna appetizer and skirt steak entree as well.
The restaurant is hard to find due to a lack of signage in the casino, and you simply cannot park anywhere near it due to the way Planet Hollywood's parking is laid out, but that is not Koi's fault.
We will dine there again.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sushi that never dissappoints!
We love visiting Koi either in LA or Vegas. The special chef roll for the night was delicious. We were on our Anniversary vacation and they took very good care of us. Even brought out a complimentary dessert.
Can't wait to go back in November.

We came in for a nice dinner before bachelorette shenanigans on the the strip. While the restaurant had a mellow mood the servers were more than accommodating with our playful disposition & antics that night, and joined in the festivities! They made the bachelorette surprise congrats dessert which was just another great touch! And the sushi and cocktails were amazing!! I will be recommending this place to all my friends, and plan to come back next time I'm in Vegas! Good job!

first time diner.The waiter was very knowledgeable about all items on the menu, we told him of our heat meter and he suggested various items. we started with the spicy lobster miso a little fishy smell but don't let that stop you the flavor was great nice spice. we also shared the KOI Bento Box they have 4 items that they pre-select for this and once again they are fantastic some spicy some not.service was very good, nice atmosphere you can sit and watch the cooks prepare r sit at the round booths. the noise level was moderate the bar was pickin up there beat for the night didn't really go w the atmosphere but overall it was really nice and the food was great

While most restaurants in Las Vegas have their own flare on the regional cusine, besides the Bake Crab Sushi roll, nothing stood out that made us want to try it. We should have looked at the menu before making the reservation. Sushi was fresh on what we did order.

Dinner at KOI
Dinner at KOI a Japanese fusion restaurant was enjoyable with one notable exception. The atmosphere was pleasant, the food was excellent, the service was great. Our water was prompt and attentive. The seared ahi and foie gras was superb as were the Kobe potstickers. The Kobe filet and sirloin were cooked to perfection with wonderful accompanying sides. The exception to the great dinner was the noise. Loud rock music was played. The music was so loud I could barely understand my partner and she was sitting only 3 feet away from me. I also has trouble understanding the waiter. This took away from the otherwise enjoyment of the evening.

Awesome Food, Incredible Service,
Koi has creative and fun variety and the food is fresh and well-prepared. Service was impeccable and the staff made terrific recommendations. Ask about dishes that are not on the menu..especially the "Braxton" roll!!!
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Koi is an amazing dining experience. The food is absolutely delicious and the service was outstanding. Each table has a waiter as well as an assistant waiter.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, modern flare
Nice restaurant tucked into a Casino on the top floor. The food portions were really small, but the food excellent! It's pricy, so bring your wallet :)
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
GREAT Sushi. Great service.
We had a terrific experience. Would go back again in a heartbeat.

Pretty good food overall
We are loyal Nobu fans and thought we would give Koi a try. We're glad we gave this restaurant a try as the food was really good, deserts were excellent, service excellent. The sauces are lighter at Nobu. I thought the sauces at Koi were a bit too heavy for example on the salmon carpaccio - it was swimming in the sauce which made it overpowering when the salmon should have been the star of the dish, not the sauce. Same with a number of other dishes - too heavy handed on the sauces. They had a Kobe beef on top of fried rice pieces and the Kobe just didn't work as it did with the yellowtail. I would go back to Nobu first but Koi is a close second.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Definitely a go to
Looking for a quiet romantic setting Koi is the place to go. From beginning to end, food, drinks, and service was excellent! Definitely coming going back in the future!
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
We've dined here before, and the food and service were just as good the last time. The crispy rice with yellowtail tartare combines soft with crunchy. The creamy rockfish tempura is tasty and spicy,.
The miso bronzed black cod was cooked perfectly.
Service was attentive and cheerful.
