About Koi - Bryant Park

Rich earth tones of orange, red and brown impart warmth to the cool and tranquil space. Thin tapestries of translucent rose fabric are embellished with flame motifs and suspended from the ceiling, creating a separate seating area perfect for a light bite near the large front windows.
Famous for its unique and mouth-watering interpretation of Japanese cuisine. Upscale Japanese fare is given a jolt of new life through an innovative use of ingredients, resulting in refreshing and exciting flavor combinations. Crispy Rice with Spice Tuna, an addictive version of the classic spicy tuna roll, featuring warm grilled rice topped with a thick layer of cool, savory tuna. Baked Crab Roll, for which succulent fresh crabmeat is wrapped in a thin rice crepe paper dotted with sesame seeds and baked to perfection. Hamachi Fusion with Soy-Citrus and Truffle Essence all artfully plated by Koi’s skilled culinary team.

Reading all the reviews and looking at pictures, I thought it would be a great dinner for my friends and myself. The place is nice, not crowded, nice interior.
Food is very expensive, but it’s not worth it at all. For example, sushi at Nobu is much better quality. Sushi has lots of rice and was falling apart which really not cost $26 per roll. We had braised short ribs and they were very dry. We ordered mashed potatoes thinking it would be a good side dish, but can’t say it was something good. The only thing that was okay were drinks and salads. We won’t come back here, and I wouldn’t recommend this place. I have no idea how this restaurant can have so man positive reviews. If you are willing to spend $400 for 4 ppl, you can est at nobu or Cipriani, or mr chow for this money.

Koi Bryant Park is my go-to when I'm in NYC. I always pop in at least once with my friends and colleagues. Our server, Marchella (excuse the spelling) is always so kind, attentive, friendly and sharp. There isn't a thing on the menu we haven't tried or loved. If you haven't been, get this on your 2018 list now :)

Had a great dinner. Love the crunchy rice with spicy tuna. And the lobster tacos. Also had a fabulous molten chocolate cake dessert with toasted marshmallow ice cream! Yum! Service was great. Attentive and they didn’t rush us. I would recommend it!

Such a fantastic meal. The kobe wagyu carpaccio, salmon carpaccio and the crispy rice were the stand-outs. Also really enjoyed the lobster tacos, miso bronzed black cod and the kobe style potstickers.

This is the second time we have been to Koi. Food is well prepared and creative. Lots of great appetizers and the sushi roll with lobster was delish. Not one bad dish, kind of pricey though.

Koi came highly recommended from a NYC-Regular friend. We scheduled a 5:30 seating which gave plenty of time to walk to our 8pm Broadway show. The food was spectacular and fun to share as a "family style" meal. The service from online reservation through Open Menu to after-meal check was wonderful. I would highly recommend Koi for a romantic evening, date night in the city or even a business dinner for good clients.

Great ambiance, busy place, well located. Menu was varied and interesting. We enjoyed the sushi rolls. In the small plates the cooked rice with tuna was delicious. Short ribs and the miso cod were also excellent. Would recommend the machi in all flavors as dessert. Excellent evening and would go back.

Stopped in for after theater dinner. Place was packed when we arrived but they had our table waiting; crowd thinned noticeably after 9:30pm. Really great room with good atmo and views of Bryant Park. We had mostly small plates, rolls etc which was perfect. One dish was late and we were full so thought about cancelling; manager came to our table to apologize and comped us for one of you appetizers. Very nice extra touch.

I made reservation online two days in advance , when I got there , the waitress put me and my business partners in the table which is right in front of the entrance , while the rest of tables are empty ( I came at 6pm), I asked her why did you put me here , she act very irritated “ even you made reservation , we can’t guarantee you have certain table “ after I insisting sitting somewhere else, she reluctantly arranged me and my business partners sit in the back. I mean , I know it’s a popular place , but having someone like her as waitress is totally ruining my appetite , the food is good , but will never come back again.

Celebrated my Daughters college graduation here & I can't say enough good things about the service & food. We had sushi for dinner along with a miso glazed cod that was really amazing & all was presented perfectly. Be sure to save room for desert as they have a great selection. the Koi sunday was a stand out for me.

Koi is situated across from Bryant Park. We had a window seat and were able to watch people walk by, but it was quite cold- so not as much people watching, however, this might be fun in warmer weather. This restaurant is connected to Bryant Park Hotel and there is a club/bar area in the hotel as well.
Overall food was very good. There were great options, interesting dishes, well-prepared, high quality.
Service was good as well.
Would recommend this restaurant to others.
