First time dining here. Celebrating hubby’s birthday. Ran a little late due to unexpected traffic. Immediately showed to our table. Waiter came immediately to ask if we wanted water or another beverage. He also took our appetizer and meal order at that time. Water came first, drinks slightly after, then lobster tacos, then crispy rice. All within ten minutes. The lobster tacos really are the length of my thumb, two bites max, but delicious. The crispy rice with avocado was different. Probably would not order again. Hubby ordered sea bass and black cod for me. Both LOVED our choices and each other’s too. Sides were potatoes -outstanding - and asparagus with mushrooms - way more mushrooms than asparagus unfortunately. Shared sorbet was all we could handle for dessert. We left stuffed and very satisfied with our expensive meal. Both agreed that it was money well spent. Looking forward to returning again soon.

We love Koi! Here is why: The ambiance is comfortable, yet elegant. There is ample room to have a private conversation while also feeling part of the crowd. The service was extraordinary. We asked our waiter, Joey, to do the ordering, and he put together one of the best meals we have had at any sushi restaurant. Finally, the food itself was memorable. We loved every single item that Joey brought to us.

One of my favorite places to splurge on a great meal. My fiance & I celebrated our anniversary there this weekend & the service was phenomenal, the manager insisted on seating us elsewhere when he noticed that we preferred to sit next to each other, he continued checking on us even after moving our seats. The drinks flowed perfectly, the braised ribs & pork chops were phenomenal. Nutella bread pudding with Happy Anniversary on the plate warmed my heart. Thank you for another memorable evening.

We came to Koi on our first date and loved it, and came back this past time for our anniversary. We weren't going to make a "thing" of it, but our somm and waiter were both very aloof/absent so we shared that we were back for our anniversary in case it would warm them up... It didn't. The food was delicious as always and ambiance was nice, but unfortunately this time the service just did not feel very inviting.

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.

I went to Koi for my birthday dinner and it was amazing. As soon as I walked in they knew it was my birthday and they were very sweet from then on. I forgot the name of my waitress but she was great and fun all at the same time. Every dish was really good. My favorite was the lobster tacos and the crab roll. I also had the Sea bass which was great as well. Coming from a person that is a true foodie and is insane about customer service I give them 6/6 stars if that was possible.
