Ki is a very stylish restaurant in the Toronto financial district. The sushi was fresh and well prepared, and our sampling from the "modern nagiri" plate showed some interesting takes on traditional sushi. Atmosphere is very pleasant, though I'm not sure the dance music constantly piped in is the best choice. It is kept at a moderate volume, though. I give big points for comfortable seating at the sushi bar. We sat at a table, but the well-upholstered, armed stools at the bar welcomed lingering. Make sure one is in the mood to do so, though, as the pace of the meal was excruciatingly slow. And that's every step of the way: it took a long time to put in orders, to get drinks, to get food, between courses and (especially) to be served dessert , despite not ordering anything required anything that required special prep. Even the soup took forever. Our server was unfailingly friendly and apologetic, so there were likely other factors slowing our meal on a night that when the large dining area was maybe half full. Leaving my rating at three stars since food and ambiance are very good, but the long delays very nearly ruined the night out.

I have loved Ki from when it opened. It is one of my favourite restaurants in the city. I will say I was quite disappointed with how long it took the server to take our food order. This has never happened before and I was quite surprised. The waiter was very happy to take our drink orders but I had to ask him twice to take our food order.

While the experience was good, related to the food and service, there were a couple issues that we had with KI. The food offerings were very small and extremely expensive. Secondly, it was very loud and difficult to here when talking to someone sitting across the table.

Very nice meal at a very nice place. Excellent service despite being very busy. Took a little longer to get the servers attention due to the crowd but the ambiance was so nice you didn't notice.
The food itself was fantastic, very tasty and creative dishes.
I was a little disappointed with the sumonumo salad, but the rest of the meal was on point and the cocktails (though fairly expensive) were outstanding.
Definitely would recommend.

We had a reservation that included 1000 points . I called to advise we would be 10 minutes late. As a result, we lost the 1000 points. Completely unfair and wrong, especially considering we called. This will go on your website.

We spent 160$ on food with no alcohol. The sushi was delicious but what really annoyed me are how trashed the bathrooms are. Don’t sell yourself as an upscale place when you have holes in walls if your bathroom stalls and broken doors. I would go back for the tempura and rolls, but it wouldn’t be my first choice n

Despite having a reservation (online AND confirmed by phone) my boss was told they had no table for him, no record of his reservation and he was made to wait 30 mins. for a table with his client. When I called afterwards, I was told that the new reservation software wiped out all online reservations and that the issue was 100% the fault of the restaurant. Unfortunately this was not communicated to my boss who was made to wait and to whom the front desk staff was, I'm told, incredibly rude and unhelpful. We did have a reservation, yet no one told him why they couldn't find it. Given that this was a client meeting, he was extremely upset and has advised he will not be returning.

We went to Ki on a Saturday evening. It was very cold and drafty and we froze throughout the meal. The service was mediocre. We had to ask for several things twice: the water, the pashmina shawl that the waiter said they had on hand for cold tables. My husband never got the dessert he ordered. I may return for a drink at the bar but not for a meal.
