The food was pretty good but
The food was pretty good but a little pricey for what you get. We got to the restaurant earlier than our reservation time and were told we would be seated right away. There was no compunction that we were there early so we may be waiting for a little while, instead they took people who walked in including parties of 9 and seated them before my guest and I. I don't know if it was due to not being as dressy but still the only real reason I would come back is because our server Anthony was outstanding!! Keep up the good work!

I went with my wife for a regular Tuesday dinner and we love Koi. It was our first time there. The valet is a bit pricey at $8 and the initial service took at least 10 minutes before our drink orders were taken. After that, it was solid clockwork and delicious food served as ordered with nice presentation.

A solid pick that has aged gracefully. It's a better deal than Nobu across the street. An LA staple that may not be as seeney as the past, but I think that's a good thing. The food has always been solid anchored by the original crispy rice. Well priced. Lovely staff that always seems to care. A step up from the college Izikaya crowd on 3rd.

Location is just awesome, outside atmosphere was very elegant. Decor on the indise was also very nice especilly the Sushi Bar. Outside area lovely to sit there, t as a little cold the night we went but on a warmer evernign it must be absolutley gorgeous.Drinks were delicious. Some of the Sushi combinatios were the best I had ever had, waiter was attentive, and the servise itself was outstanding.

Best quality sushi, fantastic vibe
I love Koi. This is a gem that has been around for many years (that's saying a lot in LA!). The fish is always grade A, which you can taste in your sushi. Service is most of the time amazing as well.
This is a great place for a romantic date, or a group night's out on the town. Beautiful decor with two patios (one has a pond), modern, and very enjoyable.

The crispy rice appetizer
The crispy rice appetizer was delicious and interesting. Got the variety serving and thought the sirloin was very good. The spinach salad was uneventful. My peach crepe dessert was awesome. Should have gotten two.
6/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for clients who appreciate novel Asian fusion. Service is quite seemless and not intrusive. Noise level could be a notch lower.
6/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love Koi anytime but it is perfect for special occasions or a romantic night out. We went most recently for my wife's birthday. It's her favorite LA restaurant. We always request Andrea as our server. She is like having a great friend who is a sushi expert. The food is incomparable. Fresh and perfect in every way. Great variety. The atmosphere is great as well. Sophisticated but relaxed and comfortable at the same time. I give Koi the ultimate high recommendation.

Crispy Yellowtail Tartar
We had a great experience at dinner! Our waiter Tony was amazing and the manager sat us at a booth outside. Great food, great ambience. Cant wait to go back!

This restaurant was really good for dinner. We walked in and everything was candle lit, we thought that we might have been a little under dressed but they sat us right away and were very accommodating when we were running late. They waitress was very friendly and the food was amazing! I will definitely come back!
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a memorable dinner here. Everythng we had was delicious, especially the salmon carpaccio with truffles. Our waiter was outstanding and helped us put together a great combination of items. I would definitely go back.
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Koi is one of the reasons why I LOVE Dine LA. I wanted to try Koi and thought Dine LA was a great way for me to decide if I liked it. Like is a major understatement...LOVED IT!! The food, service, and atmosphere were all outstanding. Our server Joey was "da bomb". The seared albacore as an app is a must. The sea bass (ginger broth) was to die for and the dessert...melt in your mouth.
I will definitely be back and already told 3 of my foodie friends about it.

We had a great evening at
We had a great evening at Koi. We spent about an hour at the small bar and the barman was superb, He was attentive and knowledgable and really made us feel very welcome. The service didn't slip at our table either, where we were looked after very well. The food was amazing....lobster tacos and black cod are a must.... We will be back to Koi on our next trip to LA!

We came for my wife's 30th
We came for my wife's 30th birthday and it was delicious. The portions are small for the price but it was a special occasion so we didn't mind. Everything tasted great and the service was okay. I would recommend it for a nice occasion but not a quick dinner by any means.

Everything was amazing but
Everything was amazing but the creamy rock shrimp tempura can be much better

Celebrated my wife's bday there
Food was very tasty, but I expected more, the sushi and the rolls were a bit bland, no spices I thought the lobster roll would taste better but it's ok. All in all the services was good they got us cake for my wife bday of course you have to pay for everything nothing is for free but we had a good time. We were 15 people so we all were excited and the food was very good

8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
The avacado and crab salad and crispy rice rolls are to die for!

Another good meal at Koi
Another good meal at Koi. I hadn't been there in about 2 years and decided to go back. We sat at the sushi bar and the chef was friendly and made some great dishes.
Hamachi, tuna, toro, salman, ume roll, scallop, uni, all were prepared beautifully and all were very fresh.
Had a great sake called Musami (or something like that) that went perfectly with the fish.
My only criticism is that as the restaurant got busier it took longer and longer to get drink refills. That's

Excellent and unique food
Second time at Koi, and loved it both times. Service is outstanding. Food is amazing. They have signature dishes that are delicious and unique. Nothing I have tried is boring. All the dishes have been wonderful. Must try's are crispy rice topped with spicy tuna, Sunfire roll, and spicy seared albacore. It is a bit pricey, but is worth it as an occasional treat. The quality of all ingredients is also outstanding. All the sushi was very high-quality and fresh. I highly recommend this place to locals and visitors. Only get to LA once a year but will go to Koi every time, and look forward to it weeks in advance!

Great night out
Great service! Food was perfect. Big selection, our waiter made the perfect recommendations.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and service always.
Every year when we are in Los Angeles, we make it a point of eating at Koi. We depend on the servers to offer their suggestions and they are always spot-on! It's always a fantastic choice and they're so nice, beyond pleasant. Andrea is the best and Zach was just enthusiastic and great at what he did. Always a fun time and the food is sumptuous.

Amazing sushi bar!
Though our waitress did not greet us or acknowledge us until half way through our meal when we waved someone down, we had an amazing time with the sushi chefs who were extremely knowledgeable and inviting. Thank you also to bartender Ken who made it a point to make sure we were taken care of. Thank you!
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The waiter offered different options since we had not been there before. The choices he recommended were great and all that we chose was excellent!! We loved the atmosphere as well. We would definitely eat there again.
10/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
Still my favourite...
Circle round but always come back to Koi - Always cool, always tasty, never in doubt!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food at Koi was AMAZING. My boyfriend took me there for a birthday evening dinner, and I left only wanting more. Everything from my salad appetizer (Organic Field Greens with Ponzu dressing), lamb chop entree, and ice cream sundae was simply delicious. Great and friendly service, with nice ambiance too. One of the better meals I've had, will definitely go back again, and highly recommend this place!!
