Japanese
Rich earth tones of orange, red and brown impart warmth to the cool and tranquil space. Thin tapestries of translucent rose fabric are embellished with flame motifs and suspended from the ceiling, creating a separate seating area perfect for a light bite near the large front windows.
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.

Way too noisy. And, I reserved a counter seat and was told none were available when I arrived at my reserved time.

The food here was absolutely delicious, as were the cocktails. Our waiter made excellent recommendations, and we enjoyed every dish! Wished it were less noisy, but it's a popular place with an energetic crowd. Even early on a Tuesday evening, Koi was packed and buzzing. Highly recommended!

The restaurant is just ok. It’s based in a hotel. The food portions were extremely small for the cost, and the food was just ok. Excellent cocktail menu though and the waitress was really really nice.
Overall it’s just ehhh. Nothing to brag about. Doesn’t do it enough for me to put in to my rotation of restaurants to return to.

Koi is a great place for those who like traditional sushi as well as those who might like some interesting spins on sushi-style dishes. And the prices are very reasonable, particularly for NYC and so close to Times Square.

The tempura vegetables were sensational, so light and tender, not greasy at all. The traditional rolls were very fresh and well prepared, although I found that the tune in the spicy tuna roll was chopped a little too finely for my taste. It was more of a paste than chopped tuna. The crispy rice was also excellent. And the sashimi (we had tuna and salmon) were both very nice cuts and sliced into appropriate bites.

The service was not bad, but also nothing worthy of any great praise.

Overall, a very nice experience. I would return.

Nice ambiance for a late night dinner. The decor is fun, the crowd a bit on the loud side. Menu is diverse, shared plates are the best way to start and their specialty rolls some of the best ones I've had. A bit on the pricey side, but worth it on occasion.

Went with four friends to dinner for a birthday celebration. Before I even had to ask about them singing to my friend they approached me and asked if I wanted anything done for her special day! They made it a very memorable night!
