So good. Food was amazing. Great selection of all types of Japanese food, things you don't see just anywhere. And several vegetarian/vegan options which is rare. Sake selection and knowledge of staff was incredible. Overall, definitely a bit pricey, but if you want a good night out, certainly worth the price.

food was excellent as expected and the first round of dishes came very quickly, however, after our first order it took many attempts to get the attention of the waiter to order again and took half an hour after finishing eating to get the waiters attention and the debit machine. Overall the service was ok but the waiting was extremely frustrating, however it did not ruin the experience by any stretch food, ambience, drinks and overall experience were still very good.

The restaurant is well located in downtown. The restaurant has a beautiful ambiance with nice wooden elements. The personnel is friendly and very helpful. Sushi and sashimi’s tasted very well. The ribs were a bit tough.

I was served raw chicken at Ki. They were nice about it, but it should not have happened.

WORST EXPERIENCE! Went for lunch with a friend. The food arrived an hour after placing the order. Our server did not check up on us. Upon arrival of the food my friends plate had a stand of hair.
Needless to say the food was really unpleasant and did not match the price standard.

Mostly okay, but the price for just okay was ridiculous. I don't mind paying high price for when I see the value, but here was a disappointment. I ordered two Modern Nigiri - Sake and Hamachi. I expected for a price of $6 and $7 a piece that they would come decorated and looking pretty, what came out is regular sushi with a bit of sauce sprinkled on them and two pepper corns on top of one on an empty plate. Very disappointing. I spent $200 for a meal that would cost me $50 max at any other sushi place. I will not be coming again and will be recommending my friends to stay away too.

The hostess was rude, we were a few minutes late, and the restaurant was very empty, and she made a very rude comment!! Not the person I would want at my front desk!! Plenty of other places to go. Won’t be back.

The service was very good and the food is finished quickly too. Even though the food did cost a little expensive, it was worth it. There were a lot of delicious choices on the menu, and the server’s recommendations turned out to be yummy. Overall, this restaurant is very high-classed, and I truly recommend it to you

Arrived exactly on time, and seated in front of doorway to patio. Made for drafty environment.

After exactly 10 minutes I walked over to the bar and asked for our waitress. A minute later she showed up. Literally 11 minutes from the time we were seated.

We ordered a bottle of wine and asked to be seated on the side of the lounge, which was done. No issues there.

Waitress brought the wine and we ordered immediately. We received our appetizers in a timely fashion, but it was 57 minutes from the time we were seated until the time our mains arrived!

For the price of sushi at Ki, I expect substantially better service. I informed the waitress as soon as she brought the main dish that I needed the bill right away, as we had to be at a theater down the road shortly after.

After a 10 minute wait, I had to get up from my table, walk over to the waitress and remind her that I had asked her for a bill 10 minutes earlier. She replied that she was sorry and she never heard me. Not once during this one hour plus dinner did she check on us to see if we were enjoying our meal. Service wise, it was a disaster from the minute we arrived.

There’s better places to spend my $250...especially downtown. I’ve been to Ki at least 20 times in the past eight years, but this is my last.

Servers, pay attention to your guests.

I come to Ki almost once a week because I like the food, drinks and ambience but I'm usually disappointed in the service. Last Friday I had to wait more than 10 mins before my server came to the table. I was also ready to order when I was seated and the host did not want to take my order saying that the server was going to come soon (which she didn't as I was waiting there and was almost going directly to the bar to get my drink). The server did not come check on the table regularly either.
