Our overall experience at Ki was simply excellent, by all the important metrics. Service. principally by Jamie and Darryl, heightened and complimented the quality of the food preparation, the combining of traditional and innovative elements on the menu, and the obvious freshness and quality of the ingredients.
Ki is by no means overpriced for what they deliver. Authentic Japanese waaabi - yes. Actual Japanese wagyu beef - check.
I can't single out individual dishes, and we had several, because they all rose to a certain standard of excellence, and consequently nothing stood out as a weakness.
Highly recommended - if you enjoy fine Japanese cuisine, just get yourself to Ki.

Great service and food but this is the third time have been seated at a horrible table when the place is empty. We always make a reservation through open table but it seems Ki wants the first people to sit where they can be seen?? I don’t make a reservation to sit in the hallway on the sushi bar!

I hate asking to move but ... will be specific about where I would like to sit from now on.

We ordered:

1. Salmon papaya tartar - Not the first time I try this here but this time the salmon had a very strong smell. I returned it to the kitchen and they were accomodating in providing other dishes.
2. Shrimp tempura - one of the best in town.
3. Sapporo draft - refreshing. Better than the ones sold in cans.

The service is always good although our waitress did not come check on us regularly. We had to call her in to let her know about the issue with the salmon tartar.

The food and value of the food used to be much better years ago. I paid $17 for 4 baby scallops and 4 baby shrimp on skewers with no mango sauce.

Another great dining experience at Ki.
From the warm welcome at the front of house, we were seated promptly.

We opted for Bar Seating and we were not disappointed.
Ms. O'Malley took care of us and is to be commended for educating us on the fine art of pairing certain Sake with our food orders, and her recommendations turned out to be perfect.

SLAINTE !

The food was great but not the service. Our waiter was kind and polite but the food took a long time and did not meet our expectations. We told our waiter at 5:45 that we had an hour before we wanted to leave for the hockey game. He said it would work. We had sat down at 5:35 and didn’t have anything brought to drink until 6pm. Our soup arrived. Nothing else arrived until 6:35. We did communicate our dissatisfaction.

Love this place but it’s getting worn out - literally. Great energy, location, food, etc. But the seats were torn and the fabric ceiling seems to be coming off the concrete above making it feel old and worn, overall. Too bad to see the owners letting it slip like that. It’s a popular spot in a super prime location - there’s no reason for it to feel like a place in decline.

Thoroughly enjoyed the meal. As always, the food is both imaginitive and excellent. Only minor downside was that as the evening went on, it seemed that the background music got louder, raeching a point where conversation became difficult.

This Venue always aims to please.
From the warm welcome at the Front of House; we were seated promptly.
Our Server was excellent in mannerism and the fact that she was very knowledgeable
about Wines (Including Sake) and pairings with the food that we anticipated ordering....BONUS !

As we are frequent visitors to KI; we always enjoy orders that come on platters and
that are excellent for sharing.
A great place to experiment with food that you have never tried before.

BRAVO !

Ki is always great! The food is innovative and very good. They have a great sake menu as well and a great sommelier to help you through the numerous choices.

Every time we go the menu shifts a bit mostly with the season. So, are usually some pleasant surprises. This is a great place for family, friends, dates, and anyone else who loves delicious, interesting food!

The only fault I could find last night was they did not have their valet.

Otherwise great dining experience as always!

The food was superb. The dishes had a variety of unique flavour and texture combinations. Everything we tasted was a feast for the senses. Portions are very small and prices are high so go if you're on the corporate card, but find somewhere else when you're buying. The music was a little too loud and cheesy - nightclub thumping beats meant for youth who wouldn't have a refined enough palate to truly enjoy the creations.
