Koi Los Angeles is a sophisticated blend of feng shui and modern elegance. Illuminated by candlelight, the natural and intricate details of the Zen inspired earth-toned colors, sleek design, fireplaces and waterscapes all create the perfect setting.

Koi's contemporary Japanese cuisine utilizes local and International ingredients. Among Koi's popular signature shared plates are Koi Crispy Rice topped with Spicy Tuna; Spicy Crunchy Yellowtail Tartare; Hamachi Fusion with Soy Yuzu and Truffle essence. Signature entrees include Miso-Bronzed Black Cod with Okinawa Potato Puree; Kobe Style Filet Mignon "Toban-Yaki"; and steamed Chilean Sea Bass with Ichimi, ginger, and shiitake. In addition to our signature rolls, Koi's sushi chefs present traditional topmost grades of seafood, including daily selections which are often celebrated by the modern and adventurous palate.

Expensive meal , definitely not worth it. Sushi was soggy , starters were just umm, had the quinoa croquette -
Too big and lumpy like someone was in a rush to finish cooking it. The miso black cod was just ok. Very average meal , very high end pricing. I felt like crying when I paid for the meal.

Wonderful ambiance, amazing service. We never had a dirty plate on our table for more than 30 seconds. Not to mention the sushi is to die for - fresh and interesting takes on classic rolls. Highly recommend Koi!

Special place. Best service and staff ever and the food was fantastic. We were from out of town and they treated us like a million bucks! Came in with the kids and they really went out of their way for us all around. Better than the NYC Koi

We hadn't been to Koi for a few months and it was like coming home - the staff were so warm and welcoming. The food was great and the service was VERY attentive. Ricky, the manager, was so nice and stopped by to make sure everything was going well. It is a fantastic place! We are going back!

My husband and I absolutely love this place. The quality of the sushi and the dishes overall are the best we have had.

Outstanding presentation of the food, delicious flavours and textures too.

We had such a romantic date night here and ate all of the dishes that the waiter recommended. He recommended the best dishes.

Luckily, we had room for dessert and oh man, the koi sundae and it was the tastiest dessert.

SO ROMANTIC AND SO FULFILLING AND TASTY!!

Booked a table, made sure it was reserved and they knew that I had a big group, came on time, but still we stood in a loby for 30 minutes. After that we ended up with two of our guests sitting in the way of all the waiters and guests. And only our waitress was so on top of everything that we managed to enjoy the evening.

The food was fair, but not great. There are several other restaurants in Los Angeles that serve the same menu, only better. I'd go to those before returning to Koi. However, the pear crepes were outstanding. I would come back to Koi just for that.

The evening was wonderful, but your restaurant was out of two items we ordered. We were there at 7:30 on a Saturday night, fairly early, right? We ordered uni, no uni. We ordered orange mocha, no orange mocha. Otherwise, everything was delightful. Oh, and the waiter forget to put a candle in our dessert. It was my daughter's birthday.
