I would recommend this restaurant but with a caution that it's very pricey for what you get. The food is decent, not outstanding. Great atmosphere though, restaurant and patio have a cool ambiance.

We had a lovely evening celebrating our anniversary at Ki. The food was fantastic and our server was so kind. Great place to go

Ki offers subdued lighting and well-appointed interior with enough space between tables to allow for a more intimate setting. The pork belly skewers were a delectable start and the tofu steak was nicely seared, mildly flavoured and the perfect texture, served with wilted greens. A glass of Chardonnay completed the meal.

The food was very expensive but not all that tasty. Comparable to fast-food sushi in terms of quality. Serving sizes are tiny but very expensive so you would at least except the quality and flavour to be outstanding. Our waitress only had a couple of tables since the place was nearly empty even though it was lunch time downtown but still managed to forget part of our order. I don't see how this restaurant will survive much longer unless they change things around.

Our server, Grant, enticed us to try the tasting menu for lunch. After giving him our list of dislikes and dietary restrictions, he brought us the most wonderful meal! Sashimi, tempura and rolls - it was plenty and so delicious!

Always love coming into Ki for lunch. Karla was phenomenal as a Server -- great attitude, great smile, and very engaging, without being pushy.

The pork belly is a go-to for me, every time, and this did not disappoint.

As well - the mixture of sashimi and rolls always seems to be a perfect amount.

Thanks guys!

Everything was delicious. Not a cheap place for sushi but the rolls are delicious and the appetizers were great too. The pork belly melts in your mouth and the eel is so tasty. Would definitely recommend for a splurge

Food was "okay" but service was poor. Requested sushi bar but it was closed due to private party. We sat next to a couple where their server was attentive and checked back. We left without ordering more due to the lack of service. Would not recommend.

Ki is a great addition to the Calgary scene. It is masssive inside and seemingly goes forever. There are many nooks and crannies for couples but even in the open areas, because of the lighting, you feel intimate. The food is beautifully presented and reasonable value. The service however was not the same... having to ask for the desert menu and the bill from the bus staff is poor form. We were often wondering where the server was.

Have been to Ki Modern Japanese many times but went for dinner recently and was really disappointed in the service, the quality of the food and ultimately, the cost we paid.

Have recommended to friends several times but I'm pretty disappointed. The fish was ragged and did not taste fresh. Normally I don't mind the cost as I feel the quality is worth it but in this case, felt like I could have gone anywhere else and gotten better quality fish.

Service was so-so. She was very nice but it was slow and not the helpful service I've received in the past.

Use to be a time when you went into Ki, and you felt a very warm welcome and not rushed. There was always a sampling of something special from the Sushi chief before you started ordering of the menu and there were always small box of chocolates as a thank you for being with them for the evening.

Neither of those happened during this visit and out waiter seem not to care, to bad because it was disappointing.

I booked a 1000 point time and received the 1000 point email confirmation. However, after dining I only was credited for 100 points. That's bad form in my opinion. I booked because of the extra points incentive. Don't trust them now.

Waitress understood that we were running late and took care of the ordering - just the top sellers was the plan and well executed. Would have personally stayed away from the tempura shrimp but the rest of the 'decisions' were fantastic.
Well done!

The food was good quality and the ambiance was perfect for what we were looking for. The cocktails we had were very good but when we asked for an item that was on the online menu we were told it couldn't be done. Ingredients were not seasonal, normal bar items. Seems a little inflexible with the "can't do" attitude.
