Koi - New York
Famous for its unique and mouth-watering interpretation of Japanese cuisine. Upscale Japanese fare is given a jolt of new life through an innovative use of ingredients, resulting in refreshing and exciting flavor combinations. Crispy Rice with Spice Tuna, an addictive version of the classic spicy tuna roll, featuring warm grilled rice topped with a thick layer of cool, savory tuna. Baked Crab Roll, for which succulent fresh crabmeat is wrapped in a thin rice crepe paper dotted with sesame seeds and baked to perfection. Hamachi Fusion with Soy-Citrus and Truffle Essence all artfully plated by Koi’s skilled culinary team.
Quick dinner for two, one appetizer and 2 sushi rolls and 2 cocktails $135 but it was really good, nice decor and great crowd
The sushi is really good
Love the place and food; a little over price
Always a great night out
Everything was good, but please get WD40 for that squeaky swing door to kitchen... so loud and annoying!
First time visting Koi and for sure it won't be my last. Ambiance is fantastic. The food is amazing, really delicious!!! Service was above and beyond to tell you more our server Jackie was wonderful all her suggestion on the menu she was totally right. Delicious!! Thank you for making it a great first time experience. For sure I will be back!
Food was good, but too expensive for the quality that you get. Servers were attentive. Great ambiance, beautiful place.
Amazing! Loved it!
This was our second time at Koi. We were so wowed the first that we eagerly looked forward to returning when we were in NYC. The shared plates/starters were just as delicious this time as the first. I was disappointed by my entree, Tofu with Vegetables. The tofu was delicious. There was no variety though in the vegetables served with the tofu. When the waiter asked how the meal was the other person with me said delicious and wonderful. I told him what I thought and then he said that the waitstaff don't recommend the Tofu meal, only to vegans! So my question is, why didn't he ask/tell me? Oh well, everything else was delicious and well worth it!
Love the crispy rice sushi - the seats are super tight though...
I used to love Koi, but I went at lunchtime (with a reservation), and waited almost an hour for my food (2 plain vegetable sushi rolls) to be served. There was no rhyme or reason to the system. In fact, those seated after me were served before me, and my lunch guest. The rolls were inedible. I've had better rolls from my local sushi restaurant, and the shishito peppers appetitizers were the worst I've ever had prepared for me, at any restaurant. I left with both as leftovers and promptly threw them in the garbage. Perhaps they have a new chef? Either way, this wasn't remotely as good as I remember it.
The two of us Waited 45 minutes for lunch which was a salad and the duck breast. No one explained why the tables around us were being served and not us. And when we asked they had an attitude. Very uncomfortable experience. Will not go back. NYC has lots of nicer places.
Gorgeous restaurant, delicious food, a bit pricey but worth it for a special occasion.
Very good sushi, but too expensive!
Not good, overpriced I wouldn’t recomend. Much better places in the area
The food was outstanding! Delicious, modern and trendy. However, the service was extremely disappointing for such a high-quality establishment. The waiters were pushy and coming back to check on the table every 3 minutes. They didn’t give us our space to enjoy the food and conversation. Between serving meals, they would bring a wet cloth and aggressively wipe down the table, as if we were at a small cheap joint in East Village.
Overall, we felt like the service didn’t match the quality of the food.
Host left us waiting
Too loud. Menu limited and very pricey. Felt rushed. Food was very delicious.
Everything we ordered - from the miso soup and seafood tempura to start, to the black cod and lobster tail entrees, to the milk chocolate-banana spring rolls and banana caramel sundae desserts - was delectable and attractively prepared. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable, and service was brisk and efficient. Because I noted in the reservation that we were celebrating a birthday, there was a lit candle on one of our desserts, which was a pleasant surprise. For our first time eating at Koi, I would have liked a nicer table (we were seated opposite the sushi prep station), and the acoustics made it hard to carry on a conversation. Aside from that, I recommend it; but expect high prices when you go.
Love all the food but it gets very loud when it’s busy
It is normally a great experience, But they set up an extra table behind me and instead of asking me to move, I kept getting bumped. The worst part was they ended taking it down 10 minutes later and the bumps started ail over again. Other than that, I like Koi...
This place never disappoints. Soooo good! Crispy rice koi tuna, northern lights roll, sea bass, short ribs buns and lemon blueberry pudding this time. On point!!
Food as always was delicious. The foie gras on tuna with truffle was outstanding. The avocado and tuna on rice crackers was very good but I recommend thinner crackers. The service was good but waiter made me feel rushed a little yet the restaurant was not that busy. The pear cocktail was very very good
We were a set of 6 and somewhat could use a bit more elbow room. Other than that the food was great.
Dinner with the family in NYC
Second time here and the food was amazing, staff was amazing. Overall a great experience.
Referred by my friend Lauren who couldn’t stop raving about Koi. Comes here with her cousin regularly, and loves all the dishes, especially the crispy spinach. Felt I had to come see for myself! She’s right! Just amazing - thankyou Koi, so much better than Sushi Seki!
Food, service, visual decor excellent. Prices steep. Seating not very good. Could barely hear my partner speak. Too damn loud.
Always good, very loud but it’s NY it’s supposed to be
Never disappoints! This is our “go to” whenever we are in the city for a show or concert! LOVE!
Presentation and freshness of food was impeccable! Would highly recommend !
Delicious and great environment! Early dinner before a show and it was a great spot in a great location.
The food was okay, but the cost was way too high for something so ordinary. We paid over a hundred dollars and left feeling completely unsatisfied.
The appetizer of spicy tuna on crispy rice was delicious. I also tried the Miso Bronzed Black Cod, which was oily and more on the rare side. The restaurant was very dark, and I couldn't read the menu and needed to use my phone as did others in the restaurant. The problem with that was that it was disruptive every time someone had to light up their phone. The lineup of tables with way too close together and everyone struggled to get in and out of their seat.
One of my favorite restaurants in the city - also, one of the best services I've ever had. The staff is so professional and educated on the food and beverages they have in stock it's amazing.
Koi used to be a quiet hotel restaurant with great ambience. Now it’s become a loud touristy place where there is barely a dress code. Would not go back.
Great from start to finish. The service and food was impeccable!
10 years between visits can change a lot. Not too impressed by the qualtiy of the sushi and the ambiance lest something to be desired. Prob won't be bad.
