We had poor service. It took them almost 35 mins to even come to our table and only after asking someone. We already had a drink from the bar, so we were fine with drinks, but no one even came to the table. When it was time to get and pay/sign bill also took a tremendous amount of time. Noise, food, atmosphere all 5 stars. Service- 2 stars.

Second try at Kai with another couple. Service was OK and food was tasty but portions were tiny and pricy. There are much better options in the area.

Great food and cocktails in a fabulous atmosphere! The only downside is that the portions are small but the food is delicious. Our server did explain that they are a Asian “tapas” type of restaurant but we were still surprised how small the portions are for the price you pay. I would however go back again! They also have a DJ in the bar area that makes this a fun place for a Friday or Saturday night!

We had a great time. Our waiter recommended some things we wouldn’t have ever ordered and they were fantastic! Try the eggplant, it is
Divine! A great place for a birthday, they really make the guest of honor feel special. The food comes in small portions, but it is delicious. Our waiter was such a gem, he really took care of us

We went to Kai for our Anniversary specifically to try their Chilean sea bass. Unfortunately, the portion size is ridiculously small and the price tag doesn’t include any sides. If you’re looking for chilean sea bass done the right way, fillet style, we would highly recommend Nick’s in Laguna Beach, California. The price is comparable but you’ll receive a larger portion, sides, and the quality and flavor is extraordinary.

The food was amazing, the ambience was beautiful and our server, Charles, was very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. Everyone was very nice to us the moment we walked in. Wished us “happy anniversary” the moment we walked in and surprised us with complimentary champagne and dessert. Definitely recommending this restaurant to all my friends and will for sure be back for those stuffed jalapeños.

The food and drink were very good. Our party of four tried several different dishes and really enjoyed everything. Service was also good. I have two complaints, the first is the noise level.
It is way TOO loud. It has more of a night club atmosphere than a restaurant. The night we went there wasn't a particularly young crowd so I'm not sure who they are trying to attract. I think at that price point you should be able to converse with the other people at your table without yelling. Speaking of price point. We ordered the $95 Peking duck (which was fantastic taste-wise), however, when they brought it out for the table-side skin-crisping fire show it is literally displayed on a foil lined cookie sheet. There has to be more attractive way to pull this off in a restaurant of this caliber, not to mention for a $95 entreé. Like I said, the food was very good but I wouldn't go back just based on noise-level alone.

While it was good, and really there was nothing overly bad to say, there are just too many other good restaurants out there for me to want to return.

Decor/Ambiance:
I liked the decor. The dinning room and the bar area feel very different but both good. We sat in the bar dining room and it was way too loud. Hard to hear the servers.

Food:
Food was okay. We did the small Omakase menu. While there were some really great dishes, nothing wowed us. The beef was chewy, the fruit at dessert was not ripe and with the added touch of being "frozen" was not good. Plus it was hard to eat, as they only gave us spoons but had things that if you wanted to share you needed a knife. The sushi was okay. The best dish was probably the eggplant.

Service:
Again just okay. While attentive at times, never asked if we wanted a second round of drinks. And it was often too hard to hear what they were saying when delivering food. In fact our server often had to repeat what was said after the runner dropped the food off. The bar area manager was great. She did check in on us a few times.

We had dinner at Kai on Saturday night for the first time. Our server Kimberley was honestly one of the best servers we have ever had. She was attentive and very knowledgable, all her recommendations were spot on! The food was wonderful and different than any Asian restaurant we have ever been to, we will definitely be back!

Service was very rushed. No breaks in between appetizers and entrees. They basically brought all the food out within a 15 min interval.

Additionally, our waitress was awful. After our entrees she just brought us a bill without asking if we wanted dessert or anything else. Than when I asked if she was going to ask for dessert, she had the nerve to say after all your food I didn’t think you would want any.

Good food, but incredibly disappointing service will keep me from returning.

The glasses are dusty, so when they pour water there are particles floating in the water. The service needs to be better and the tables should be larger. The table size is not practical. The decor of the restaurant and the music is fabulous. The food is good but compared to other 5 star sushi restaurants they don’t give you much food. Overall I give it 3.5 stars.
