During these trying times, we are trying to adjust our service so that customers feel safe but still have a great Ki's experience. Daytime service is as it always has been: order at the counter and the food will be brought to you in the seating area we have created outside under the tents. Night-time is full service. Sunday through Thursday is upstairs. The tables are spaced far apart and there is an option of being out on the front deck for parties of two. On Friday and Saturday, we will be offering full service in both seating areas of upstairs and under the tents outside.
Ki's is a perfect fit for its local beach community culture. We provide food options that serve the needs of people who enjoy the outdoors and have a high degree of awareness for their health, fitness and well being. And Ki's is more than just a 'health food' option for many. It is simply great food for anyone-professionals, families looking for a home-cooked meal or friends hanging out enjoying some tasty eats.

Wonderful experience! I was entertaining a friend from Alaska & all she wanted was an ocean/sunset view. She got a most amazing view & amazing sunset plus a delicious meal & wine. Overall, a very great experience!

Ki's is amazing. Great location, great food, great service. I had the special (swordfish) and it was cooked PERFECTLY - which is not easy to do. Prices are fair and the waitstaff/management is always friendly and attentive.

I miss their sushi so I hope they find a good sushi chef but their regular menu offers plenty of great options.

Great venue to hear and see good musicians while having dinner or drinks. Excellent food, appetizers, wine, bar drinks. We have dinner there when Peter Pupping or Peter Sprague are playing.

For a Sunday night the service was very slow. We had read such good reviews, but alas the food was mediocre, service was not good and hence the value was poor.

Beautiful view. Reasonable pricing compared with other places (25-35 for entrees. Apps and drinks delicious so tab will go up a bit). Will be going back to try the things people around me got if I don’t get the same thing I already really enjoyed.

Ki's has really stepped it up with the outdoor dining area and the entertainment. It's hard to find places like that. And the beach is right across the street, making for fabulous sunset dining. the menu has something for everyone. Just a great place!

Great view save for the busy road between the restaurant and the ocean. Food was pretty good, especially for the prices they charge. Drinks were expensive but tasty. The structure of the restaurant is a bit dated and the tap water had a poor taste to it, but overall I’d go back again.

Sweet place across the street from the beach in Cardiff. Parking was easy and close, as the restaurant has its own lot. Enjoyed a nice sunset dinner. Service was excellent and friendly. Enjoyed a very reasonably priced and good bottle of wine. Starter was an interesting Brie and mango grilled roll. Our fish entrees were terrific. Mine was miso glazed salmon over sautéed spinach and cauliflower mash. Perfectly cooked fish. My girl had the macadamia encrusted mahi mahi entree. Delicious. We will definitely be back. Casual vibe. We lingered a long time and really enjoyed it.

This spot was a nice surprise.
Great location with a wonderful view of the Pacific.
The food was much better than we had expected. The ingredients were fresh and the flavors were so perfectly paired.
I do think the decor could use a little extra touch - a few flowers in a mason jar or a small candle on each table and softer lighting in the bigger dining area would just make it feel cozier with detracting from its cool and casual vibe.
Jenna was our service and she was attentive and sweet.
Definitely a great meal and a nice evening.

Delicious food, nice view. Server was wrong about a couple of dishes, but otherwise a very nice meal. Our first time back since the owners catered our wedding--with one week notice after our original caterers bailed on us. Thanks for helping us get off to a great start!!!

Excellent service, food, and view of the ocean. I would give it a 4 1/2 star rating as the only thing preventing a 5 star rating was the noise level on the patio was a little loud. However, as the dinner crowd subsided, the noise level subsided as well making the evening and venue perfect. Would highly recommend and plan to be back again soon.

I ordered the coconut macadamia mahi mahi. It was amazing. The fish was well cooked and the rice and snap peas were also well-cooked and the flavors of the sauce were amazing. I also had a chilled Martin Ray Pinot Noir that was light and fruity. The upstairs patio has a great indoor/outdoor vibe. Great location for sunset.
