Always a good experience with exceptional sushi. That crispy rice is always a must.
The only unfortunate thing, was seated next to a rather loud speaking couple and the tables are just to close. Couldn’t hear my dinner date across from me.
Food and service was excellent!
Great food and service
It’s a great restaurant! Food is great! Service is good. Noise level - standard for open huge space.
Sushi was amazing. Prices are a little up there but you're definitely getting what you pay for. Cool decor and layout, although very tight. The tables are very close together and getting into the booth side of tables requires skill. Food came out fast and fresh, service was good but not amazing. Our waiter seemed distracted. Overall, would visit again and recommend!
Great service. Food was excellent and came out promptly. Will definitely return. Loved the Dragon roll.
The noise level was so high that we could not hear each other and there were only 4 of us.
I always love their sushi and crispy rice, and the lobster tacos were tiny but delicious. Our waiter was friendly and very attentive, checking in with us multiple times despite being busy. My only complaint is with the chilly host - I arrived ahead of my friend and he asked me to check back in when my dining companion arrived. I have never not been asked if I would like to be seated, and I'm not young! The seats in the waiting area were occupied and the tiny bar does not have bar stools.
Great, attentive service, but not intrusive. Super sushi. Wonderful overall experience.
Very tasty sushi, a bit too loudly. Good drinks and dessert
3rd time at Koi and it never disappoints. Our group keeps getting bigger so we can order more dishes.
The server was attentive and properly friendly. Very pleasant. The sushi was delightful including items like the northern lights roll. It was a great setting for meeting with old friends and also a business meeting. Everyone had a good time. And of course we would come back again and we have been to Koi before in other locations. We were able to conduct business without noise being an issue. I highly recommend this place.
Service was amazing and food was delicious
This place is really nice, but the food is not coste effective for sushi lovers. I think it’s kind on the expensive side considering what they serve.
Mediocre food, absolutely appalling service, a rude waiter and a cheque while while we were still eating. In a city with so many dining options, I don’t know why anyone in the know would ever visit this overrated excuse for fine dining restaurant.
One word: wow. Everything we ate was divine. Our server was top notch and she recommended all the right things! A definite must try, best sushi I've ever had.
I was a little disappointed. I had a $45 Chirashi entree, and it was not as fresh as I have had at high-dollar Japanese restaurants. Nice choice of appetizers, and a creative starter (crispy rice with Tuna). I am a bit of a purist when it comes to Sushi, and don't like the big, mayonnaise-ridden Sushi mixes that you sometimes see in places like this, so read my review accordingly. Nice location near Bryant Park, good service, good ambiance, but the value wasn't great in my opinion.
My meal at Koi was not good. I dined earlier this week after a broadway show & found that the service was fine, but rushed "because the restaurant was closing early". This was not the servers fault - he was very good. Our food wasn't very good (and really, I'm trying to be nice) and VERY over priced. We had the lobster tacos (barely any lobster), crunchy tuna rice (warm tuna & not very good), an eel & tuna avocado roll (both rolls were warm). The sake was reasonably priced & our cocktails were good (13$ for a large glass of sake which sort of defeats the purpose of the carafes).
There is absolutely nothing special about the food at Koi and I suggest you reserve elsewhere. Separately and unrelated to the food, I found that the hostess was rude. I had a later reservation and the restaurant had the audacity to call me and ask me to come in 30 minutes earlier (after being told they were closing "early" I understand why I was called). Our party ended up coming in 30 minutes earlier (as suggested) and she made us wait over 5 minutes to be seated (there were multiple tables open). I understand it was early in the week but having worked in the hospitality industry for +5 years, this is just a huge no-no. Koi should feel lucky they have a power business lunch scene, otherwise this place wouldn't stand a chance in NYC. Spend your hard earned money elsewhere - Tao has a better scene and is about 100x better.
By far, one of my favorite places. Food never disappoints.
While the food at Koi was delicious and worth the price, the service left something to be desired and the noise level was definitely a factor at our working business lunch. I would recommend the restaurant more for a get together with friends over lunch vs. for a business meeting.
My son loved it. Whatever he likes my wife and I loves.
Was charged as shareable check without even asking us
This is my new favorite place now. The food was amazing and the service (Maram, who was lovely waited on us for the evening) was outstanding. The AGM Rex is attentive and genuinely cares for the patrons' dining experience. Everything was impeccable. We had a perfect evening. Will definitely go back.
Note: They also have a gluten free menu.
The ambience and overall decor was great. Also, the server’s assistants were impressive; cocktails tasty. However, my server didn’t know the menu nor was attentive. I asked what type of seaweed they served and she didn’t understand/know there was more than one kind of seaweed salad. The Northern Lights was the most expensive, imbalanced dish I’ve ever eaten in my life. But my waitress never came by again for me to order something different. $107, for one person without tip, for a grocery store quality seaweed salad, a hand roll, 5 pieces of albacore tuna sashimi, and a pathetic attempt at overpriced sushi roll. The waitress had the audacity to take my signed check and tip from my table before I’d left (7:00 at the latest). I wish I’d bought a hotdog from a street vendor.
The food is exceptional and the service slightly better than adequate but the noise level is almost unbearable. Conversation is almost impossible.
It's a good place for millennials who can happily spend the meal texting one another in lieu of conversation.
Ate here before attending a show. Great food, quick service and relaxed atmosphere. Overall a good spot!
Our waiter, Javier, was exceptional. Courteous, informative, prompt and friendly.
Solid menu choices...appetizers in crispy rice and pot stickers were excellent. Consistently good entrees and the sushi was fresh and delicious as always.
Koi is pretty good. Its very expensive and there are much better and cheaper options in the city and in midtown. Good for corporate lunches. The Sushi is pretty standard.
Will come again..........,,,......................,,..
Food was amazing. A little pricey but it was great food and the service was outstanding.
Koi is beautifully appointed with a wonderful staff. I was disappointed by the food in general however the small plates were good. It’s also a big corporate meeting place so the entry can be crowded with people milling about. Overall would recommend for small plates and drinks.
Great late dinner spot. Good food, and excellent service.
Food was delicious and they were very accommodating. Located mid-town and easy to access. Beautiful interior. Staff was very friendly. Oddly, they served the first three plates in rapid succession within minutes of ordering so we politely asked them to slow down the service as we were not in a rush (never had to do that before). Pricey and noisy but I guess that's NY. Overall, great meal - my wife and I would definitely recommend.
Food was excellent and the location could not be beat, right outside Bryant Park! Will definitely return here.
The food was good but not worth the price. Hostess and servers have an attitude. Definitely better sushi in NY.
A bit over priced.
We loved the food, and the staff was friendly; but we were thrown off by how quickly the courses kept coming out and how frequently the table was cleared. In the end, we felt rushed.
Although maybe not the most hip Asian fusion restaurant anymore—consistently great food and atmosphere and convenient location in Bryant Park Makes it my go-to Asian Fusion restaurant.
I love this place. Food is always delicious. My only complaint is that it comes out so fast and at times I feel as though we are being rushed.
