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.

I’ve had much better sushi for a lot less. We had two rolls, each a cup of miso soup and shared edamame - the bill came to $115 before tip. Crazy overpriced! And the sushi really wasn’t great. Also, the seating we got was very tight and uncomfortable.

Highly recommend Kio... Amazing food, modern atmosphere, perfect location (by Bryant Park) and very good service.

My wife, mother-in-law and I dined here for New Years. We started with well crafted Martinis and some Spicy Tuna Tartar on a chewy block of fried rice... Perfect. My wife and her Mom continued with a few plates of sushi, while I ordered the Peppercorn Filet Minion.

Now, I’ve been to many of the finest steakhouses all over the world so when I say this steak was good... Believe it. The steak was presented sliced into cubes surrounding the most amazing potato purée. If you like meat, you need to have this dish!

Best of all, Koi is right across from Bryant Park!

The restaurant was not busy and we had a party of 7 then added 1 for. Total of 8. Manager insisted that at party of 8 we were required to have a fix menu at $100 per person. Why? We split 4/4 and sat close to each other. If they would have accommodated, we probably would have ordered more food. Instead each person ordered one mid range item from the menu.

We were two big guys on a date and the host stand kept trying to seat us at a table with a bench settee on one side and a chair on the other. It was annoying having to ask to be re-seated multiple times because one of us was squished into a seat. Finally I picked the most suitable empty table myself for two guys and requested that one. We finally sat there but it felt a little thoughtless in the way they picked our table for us.

This place was recommended by a friend and did not disappoint. Fantastic on every level. Great appetizers, sushi rolls, entrees, and specialty cocktails. Miso Sea Bass was the best fish I have ever had. Would visit again when we are back in the city.

Our experience was unfortunately awful. I made a lunch reservation for a special end of year celebration with my wife. They sat us at a tiny table with other people basically right on top of us. My wife felt so claustrophobic that we had to leave. Food was ok. Never got the entrees but still were charged the full amount ($120!!). Not going back again.

 (Little Rock)·Dined on December 22, 2017

This was our second trip to Koi, and it did not disappoint, although the entrees were hit-or-miss. The small plates we ordered were superb; we enjoyed the fois gras on seared tuna, the kobe wagyu carpaccio, The edamame dumplings, seafood tempura, as well as the sunfire sushi roll. The entrees left a little to be desired. The miso black cod was not as good as it was a couple years ago. The skin was not crispy (as it should be if left on the fish in my opinion), and the fish itself did not taste fresh. The lobster was slightly overdone, although the accompanying vegetables were very flavorful and delicious. The sea bass (steamed) was the winning entree hands down. Perfectly cooked, and the nage was delightful. We also enjoyed the lychee martinis, and the preparation has evolved with the seasons. In regards to the atmosphere, it is very loud, so if you plan to have a nice, quiet dinner, this is not that place. Although in our specific experience, there was a table next to us of loud, brash, obnoxious individuals, and that alone is not fault of the restaurant. All in all, we truly enjoyed our experience and will most likely return on our next trip to NYC.

Everything just melted in your mouth. We devoured everything. The crispy rice, the sea bass, the short ribs. The Martini was a treat, Lychee. The seated us promptly, and it’s like they were psychic literally delivering every course, as soon as the first one was finished. We ordered 3 or 4 different things for the 3 of us to share and there wasn’t a bit of time between the courses. No more but a breather. I’d say well orchestrated and they have it down to a science. The flavors and textures were perfectly married and I’d love to go back again, even with so much to choose from in NYC.
