Ki's Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We had a very nice dinner at Ki's and we would definitely go back.
The food is excellent. We split the Mushroom Bruschetta, Cauliflower Mac and Cheese and the Lamb Chops. All three were amazing and and with some wine made for a wonderful dining experience.
My recommendation would be to get a table on the balcony as the interior portion of the restaurant is very loud and I think it might detract if you were looking for intimate dining .
Great food. They have a most diverse menu and something for everyone. But LOUD! Huh? I can’t hear you. Should we go out to the “patio”? Huh? What? Please try to soften the loud a little. Your food is so good and solid. Lamb chops and steak were excellent. Fish was a little over done. But service was superb. Very understanding, patient and friendly.
Our family wanted an ocean view, but we were dining as a party of 12 with little kids. Ki's was perfect. The table was set for us, complete with high chairs and an ocean view. The menu, while seemingly eclectic, proved to be a crowd pleaser. Fresh, healthy, fun. Our server Alex was great with our large party as well.
A long climb up a narrow stairway is required to reach the dining room. No elevator. Handicapped or wheelchairs? Forget it. Very courteous and attentive service. Small menu but excellent food including a surprising selection of sushi (Wednesday thru Saturday only). This was especially welcome as there are few good sushi options in Cardiff/Encinitas/Leucadia. Nice beach and ocean views from dining room. Unfortunately the noise level is very high in this restaurant even when it's half empty and if there are kids nearby, it is intolerable. TVs in the bar are annoying too. Dinner for two including one cocktail and one beer was $90.
I chose Ki's on open table after reviewing the dinner menu. I had selected filters for Scenic, Healthy, and North County. There were 6 of us-each with different dietary wants- and I was able to find something on the menu that everyone would love. Ki's has a great Sushi menu, Vegan and Gluten Free options, as well as Traditional Dinner Menu items. We visited Ki's at sunset and a few of us ordered off the special priced sunset menu. Everyone was happy with their selections. Service was well timed and very friendly!
Overall -Delicious, Healthy, Great Service, Beautiful view! We will definitely be back!
For the first time, we had very slow service .... however, Ki's rose to the occasion! The manager came to our table to apologize, and our round of drinks was comp'd. We've always had excellent service at Ki's. We totally understand that sometimes "things" happen. Ki's handled the situation very well. We will definitely be back!
Kristin was amazing! Not only did she give us great menu guidance when we mentioned we were headed to Maui next weekend she went out of her way to provide us with some of her favorite things to see and do on our trip.
We found Ki's through Open Table looking for a spot with a sunset view and we were not disappointed. I think your view is better than the Chart House across the street.
Almost the entire menu can be made gluten free (with most dishes already Gluten free as prepared). Could not have asked for a better date night
Took my mom here as she's from Texas. I got the black cod with veggies instead of the udon noodles and my husband and mom were both jealous of my plate. It was delicious!! The only complaint I have is the bathroom smell... not sure if that's fixable, but I would give 5 stars if it was fixed!
I hadn't been to Ki's for many years as I wasn't on the eat healthy train for a long time. Since my son recently became a Vegan, I thought of Ki's as the perfect place for us to go. They have gotten so much better, the menu was wonderful and the salmon in parchment paper was delicious. My son had a good curry dish that he liked very much.
Went there to listen to music and eat dinner.
Food was excellent, but the room was very loud, people talking over the music, trio set up in a corner of the lounge, and they were hard to hear over the noise of conversations. Would not recommend going there for the purpose of listening to the music.
I have been here before and enjoyed th food and atmosphere. Service is always good but on this last occasion the noise level was exceptionally high from several kids running around. Don't understand why parents allow their children to act as if they're at a play ground when dining out. What happened to learning manners?
