Great sushi, very tasty and fresh. Loved Rot Sam (last time took Red Thai Curry was amazing as well, not too spicy and very-very good). Also sake "pure dusk" was very good - Junmai Daiginjo Sake). Mochi - berries are the best, coffee - good, green tea - didn't like much. Sat on the closed veranda - was very nice). Not cheap, but worth it to my mind.

The food was ok. Nothing special and way too expensive for what it was. One of our orders arrived an hour late. We received no real apology, and the staff didn’t offer to give us that plate for free which I would expect at that point. We paid $300 for food that was meh. I had a salad that was basically greens thrown in a bowl with little next to nothing else with it. That cost me $9. A plate of 6 sushi rolls for $17 -very small and we were honestly hungry when we went home. For four people it cost $260 and I didn’t even drink. Three others just had a couple drinks. I would expect to pay that much for a really nice meal, not what we actually received.

Waitress was new and we wanted ceviche which I have had here twice before. She said they discontinued. We ordered something else then came back and said chef canniest make it. We said ok but not near as good as before. Vegetable tempura pieces were huge so hard to eat

Hostess sat us in patio area, draft was soon strong we had to move. Waiter finally showed up and took our first course. It took way too long. Then another food runner showed up with a wrong order. Then aftern30 min our food showed up. Then another food runner brought the wrong food to our table. Our 2nd course took another 30 min. Then food runner showed up yesterday again with a wrong food. At this point we had enough and decided to not finish our meal and not order 3rd and 4th course. It was horrible and not sure how a fine dining restaurant like this will stay open with this kind of service and miatakes....

It was the perfect restaurant for a perfect night. The food was great from the sushi to the pad Thai, the music was lit! The food came out on time even though they where crowed and packed, we had such a good time

Outstanding food. Well appointed restaurant. We were there on Valentine’s Day. It was busy and servers looked overwhelmed. Served us wrong item - twice. Drink arrived after 45 minutes.

Was there for Valentine's Day, food was ok but expected much better considering the price. Decent for place for drinks and an appetizer but for the price I expected much more from the food. I would not recommend this place for dinner.

Very overpriced. Portions extremely small, even their signature dishes are tiny. The $37 cod took forever to come out and it was bite size for an entree and had bones in it! The $8 truffles were 6 pieces ! Ambience nice. Staff friendly but compared to tons of other places I’ve been to, this is very low quality considering the price. Also I could not find the tempura in the hurricane sushi and they never gave me any soy sauce. Blue fish is far superior with sushi.

Expensive for the size of food you received. Appetizer of 8 calamari.

An expensive beef dish that they said could be shared, which was not the case.

The flavor was great. Not a good value.

I have been to Kai several times however I was not very pleased with the experience at the hostess desk. I had made a reservation and yet had to wait a long time before I got a table. They were not communicative or pleasant. After we were seated our waitress was very welcoming, attentive and hospitable. Food was great as well. I hope this was a one time thing and I will definitely go back, hopefully next time for a better experience.

Very nice atmosphere. Restaurant is beautiful and good quality is great. Price seems a bit high for drinks, as well as the amount of food offered in appetizers as well as sushi. Overall great place but pricing is by far the only negative.

An incredible way to celebrate the Lunar New Year!! The Dragon Dance and decor were so fun! Food highlights include the duck tacos, eggplant miso and banoffee dessert! Will be back (they were out of the shumai).

we had asked for patio seating through pentacle, but when we went there, they did not see it in their records. But they did find a table for the four of us. We were celebrating our daughter's 18th birthday and they bought out some ice cream with a sparkler on the house, which was a wonderful gesture. Alexa was wonderful in her service and the food was exceptional. The drinks were good, though a bit on the expensive side. All in all, a wonderful experience and we will keep going there.

Have been to Kai on numerous occasions. This was special as it was my wife's birthday and Kai is her favorite place. Once again Kai did not disappoint. Everything was wonderful and especially tasty. We splurged on the Royal Roll which is quite the indulgence. It did not disappoint. Kai continues to be one of our favorite places.
