Hotel valet parking was ideal! The service was impeccable! The food was seasoned well & the drinks were well prepared. Looking forward to dining here again! Will recommend to others :)

Food is outstanding. Sushi
Food is outstanding. Sushi is as fresh as you'll get it anywhere. Highly recommend the Northern Lights Roll and the Spicy Tuna with rice cake. So good it's stupid. It's a bit pricey though, so I'd save it for business meals or special occasions.

Great food same as Bryant park
This Koi has the same food as Bryant Park location. Smaller restaurant with not the great ambiance of Bryant Park location. Overall a great meal. Will go back.

A must foodie experience
Great variety of sushi Koi signature dishes... Tuna tartare and yellowtail tartare were delicious! Enjoy the contemporary cuisine and vibe... Definitely worthy of a return visit!

I had heard wonderful reviews about the food and was not disappointed. Started with their signature crispy rice with tuna tatare on top. It was spicey but mouth wateringly delicious. Also had yellowtail with crispy onions...different in a good way. The food is presented to share so my husband and I shared the miso cod and the short ribs. Both melted in your mouth. The staff all around were so attentive. From seating us, to waiting on us, to clearing the table. My only disappointment was that there were only 2 of us. I will definitely return with a larger group in order to try more things on the menu.

I was glad to find out there was a Koi downtown. I loved the one in Bryant Park but no I can can frequent one close to work and home. Our server was great and gave us great service. The bar and hostess could be a little more customer focused. It was early and the place was empty but we had to remind them, "Hey--we'd like some service." Other than that little blip I'd give Koi an excellent recommendation.

Great date night with the wife.
My wife and I recently went back to Koi --- a place where we have been several times with a large group of friends -- but this time it was just the two of us. We had a great romantic evening -- food was awesome and the service was just as good. We would recommend Koi (Soho) to anyone looking for a hot spot that's still got a great ambience for a date.

What a surprise!
When we first walked into the restaurant we were a bit concerned that our dining experience with 2 children in tow following 12 hours of travel would be a bit challenging. However, without prompting our server was informative, courteous, attentive and quick. We never waited too long for anything...sake, sushi, miso seafood soup, lamb chops for the kids and Kobe filet for the adults. All were done to exceed our discriminating palates. This is the first time I've been moved to write a review...and it is well deserved. Kudos to the staff and management at Koi!

Refined version of the uptown Koi
The food is just as good but the Trump Soho venue is quieter and the aura in the restaurant more refined. The uptown Koi near Bryant Park is boisterous and hard to have a conversation in!
Really enjoyed the quiet and the good service. That said things might have been slow due to the fact it is the height of summer and we ate dinner relatively early at 6:30 pm.
Food and service were really good. Staff friendly and very attentive.

Great food, but a bit rushed
The food was awesome. However it was a relatively quiet night and the food came out to quickly. I think we had our whole meal served in about 30 minutes.

The food, the service and the ambiance were all five star! I had delicious rack of lamb and my daughter had a variety of the sushi and everything was done to perfection! The waiter was wonderful, the hostess was very welcoming and the bartender poured a good dry! It was so good we went back the next night...I had the duck over peppers which was wonderful and. Y daughter went back to her sushi rolls...it was a nice setting, not noisy so we could actually have a nice conversation and not so over the top trendy where you are uncomfortable......highly recommend...

Decided to try this downtown version of Koi for my godson's b'day lunch. I've been to the Bryant Park local a dozen times obviously I'm a huge fan. Aside from the amazing food (which is really all that counts) this Koi restaurant in no way resembles the ebullient Bryant Park Koi. Okay wait, we were 2 diners out of maybe 6 so there was no zip no energy. We were greeted and seated instantly. The hostess secretly confirm that they were aware it was a b'day celebration & as per my request they'd bring a dessert. They did it perfectly, candle and all. The server knew his stuff. The meal was wonderful! I'm just sorry this Koi hadn't' any of the verve of midtown Koi. All that aside bravo to the staff and chef. Absolutely wonderful service & food.

Amazing Japanese Food Experience !
I've always loved Japanese food and tried many different places in the city.
Koi is THE best Japanese restaurant I ve been to. Not only they have incredible rolls (I highly recommend the Northern Lights Roll) but they also have amazing plates like the Tuna or Salmon Carpaccios, the Sauteed Tiger Prawns and the Koi Crispy Rice.
The service is very good and friendly and the design of the place is very cool.
Went on a wednesday & thursday night. Music was louder on thursday which didn't make conversations easy.
MUST GO TO RESTAURANT

Better that expected
I had read some mixed reviews of this restaurant but was pleasantly surprised. The room was busy and fairly noisy, but in a good way. The food was excellent (particularly liked the sea bass).

Family Night Out
We loved this restaurant! Seriously one of the best we have been to in a while. Between the decor, and the food we were absolutely blown away. Even though this is clearly an upmarket spot, the waitress was fantastic in regard to dealing with kids. The waitress gave my brother handfuls of chopsticks and he proceeded to make a chopstick house, the staff were so friendly and open. This is truly a fantastic dining experience.

Amazing Crispy Rice Spicy Tuna
Love Koi Midtown, and downtown is just that much better location for a Saturday night. It is not my first time there, and somehow I am always cold. Otherewise the food and drinks as well as the service is great.

Never had a better piece of fish!
The Miso Bronzed Black Cod was just outstanding. The fish was cooked perfectly and infused with flavor.
I don't like truffles or truffle oil, so that limited my menu selections.
