Excellent restaurant and wonderful wait staff.
Keenan was the best. Will definitely request him next time I go!
Always love going to this Koi location when in town! Food was delicious, and the atmosphere was perfect after a long day of traveling into the city. The only down fall was our server. He was not very attentive and was not very inviting. But this will not keep us from going back in September when we are back for business!
Best sushi ever. So fresh. Amazing
Average sushi. A few good dishes but they are so common and not worth the price tag. Prefer Nobu.
Very loud - not energetic. Always hard to talk
Was disappointed. Crispy rice yellowtail didn’t taste like yellowtail at all. My tofu was really salty and pedestrian. I have eaten the sushi which is good but I just don’t think it is a great experience and is really too noisy.
Koi never disappoints. Food & service are consistantly very good/excellent. Ambience is wonderful but not a place to go for quiet conversation if that's what you are looking for. Cannot beat the location across from Bryant Park. Close enough to theatre district to be very convenient for pre-show dinner but a class above any of the restaurants directly by theatres. We will go back again, and again, and again.....
Food was amazing. Miso sea bass and dragon roll was some of the best food we’ve had. We celebrated our anniversary and we would return next time in NYC.
Mikelya was awesome!
Excellent service and delicious food! Highly highly recommend!
I have always felt like Koi was an underrated sushi place in the city. The food is always amazing and I always have a great time whether I bring co-workers, friends, or entertain customers. The same and wine selections are great, and the food is even better. It’s become one of my favorite places in the whole city.
My new favorite restaurant!
I have visited 2x in 1 week.
One appetizer is better than the next and everything is bursting with flavor.
Some of my favs are Lobster tacos, crunchy rice with spicy tuna, salmon carpaccio with truffles, calamari salad and the list goes on.
Love the space, service and martinis.
Make reservations immediately!
Best Janonese restaurante in town! Will comeback soon
Muy buen lugar de comida japonesa ubicado cruzando la calle de la biblioteca pública. Decorado con estilo moderno de buen gusto y con excelente servicio
Great food, very fast service. Bit on the expensive side, but really good quality food and drinks.
Koi is a fun and lively place, but we found the food underwhelming. The skirt steak was chewy and the rice was on the greasy side. The cocktail was not strained and had a cloying mouthfeel.
Food was as tasty but bit so different than any regular good sushi restaurant, Expensive, small portions , very noisy
I thought it was very noisy, may guests were upset by it. I have been several times, did not notice so much, but hard for business meal. The Calimari salad , I have had several times, but too much dressing on it the other night , not as good, could not finish it.
The lobster roll thing was absolutely delicious, but could have been larger, esp for the price.
Koi Bryant Park was overall very good. The service was excellent.
Koi probably requires no introduction. One of the best places to enjoy fusion food. Asia meets America.
A friend’s birthday
The food is adequate but VERY overpriced for what you get
I’ve had better sushi in many restaurants that are much less pricey
Excellent food and service!
Food is not what it used to be. The open tables at what used to be a fully booked restaurant, speaks volumes. Server was not knowledgeable about the entrees and it’s ingredients, or perhaps the noise in the restaurant was just so loud, he couldn’t hear what we were asking. Disappointing.
Amazing food! Our waiter had a great personality! Loved the ambience. Would definitely go back!!!!
Wife’s birthday. Had the lobster which was the best I think I’ve ever had. And a surprisingly large portion. Wife enjoyed her fish.
Service is impeccable.
The only real issue is that we noticed a large number of people I assume work at nearby finance firms.
I guess it’s part of the culture, but they all, and I do mean all, talked uncomfortably loud. Loud for every a busy manhattan restaurant.
The man sitting adjacent to my wife was speaking so loud, it made my wife physically uncomfortable and I had to ask him to tone it down.
We went downstairs afterwards to the charming and well staffed hotel bar and sitting next to us at the main bar, same exact problem. And I know they were in finance...because it’s all they talked about.
Other than that, I have to emphasize that the food and drinks were all top notch. The decor is lovely and the view of Bryant park is like a painting
Always enjoy koi. Took our granddaughter and she loved it
My husband and I went here on a date night and sat upstairs. The tables are incredibly close to one another - as in the server needs to move them to help the person(s) sitting in the booth get in and out. Our server was great. We ordered edamame, sashimi, and several sushi rolls. Everything we ordered was gluten free. Each thing we ordered came out separately, so we never had 2 things on the table simultaneously, which was a unique and enjoyable experience for us. The food was delicious. It's a bit pricey, but as a highly recommended sushi restaurant in NYC, that was expected on our part. Overall we enjoyed it, and would go back, but only after visiting some other highly recommended sushi places first.
I had no preconceived notions about this place. I was looking for a solid sushi place to have a business meal. The food was good, maybe even very good, but over-priced. I've had sushi at many of the big names, and the fare here was above average but not spectacular. When you drop $100 per person for a lunch, you expect to get wowed at some point. I wasn't wowed, but I must say it was very good. It did serve it's purpose as a solid business lunch.
Overpriced fare for medium quality. Transferring high Bryant Park rent to diners.
The service was horrible! I walked in to check in for our 7:45 pm reservation and one hostess told me she had me checked in and to just let her know when the other person arrived. My date arrived literally three minutes later. I asked the same hostess about the table and she directed me back to the front booth to check in. Once we checked in for a second time the table still wasn't ready. We weren't offered an opportunity to sit in the lounge or go to the bar while we waited. We just stood in the middle of the floor waiting. Another hostess approached us and asked if we understood how "fluidity of tables" works and we said no, to which she replied with "well people aren't getting up as fast as we would like." She then offered to sit us at the sushi bar, to which I refused. Only to turn around and see a party of two leaving and asking another hostess if we could sit there. We were given the table, but the whole debacle was uncomfortable and disconcerting.
It’s expensive but worth it! Fresh sushi and great atmosphere
Delicious work lunch! The food, and service were great as were the cocktails! Highly recommend!
Exceptional restaurant, never disappointed in the least bit. Consistently great food and great service. Always one of my go-to spots.
Overpriced and underfed
It was ok nothing fantastic
My husband and I had an amazing dining experience here! The staff was very attentive to our needs. The food, wow. Would definitely come back !
Quick service and great food for an early dinner (7 pm). Pretty pricey. Not very busy at that time on a Saturday night
The staff was friendly, efficient and helpful. I ordered the Duck Breast which was superb. The skin was crispy and the meat was moist and flavorful. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the Filet. I look forward to my next visit to this restaurant.
