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.

I dined at Koi for the first time to celebrate a dear friend’s birthday. The experience was superb from start to finish. The food tasted like manna from Heaven and the service was excellent. I will most certainly be back for the Koi experience.

My husband and I visited Koi for his 30th birthday. The food was absolutely wonderful. We had the salmon tartar on crispy rice and tuna with foie gras as apps, and I had a sushi roll and he had the duck for dinner. Dessert was the trio of house made icecreams. Craft drinks were on point. Great experience.

A little overpriced but the food was tasty and service good. Bustling and lots of space. There’s also a great bar downstairs to try afterwards with great cocktails.

Servers forgot about one meal. The seating was quite tight for eight - coach in an airplane has more room.

Love the atmosphere and food. Our waiter was a bit grumpy, which was a bummer. But otherwise it was lovely and the sushi fresh.

Overall, we had a very nice experience at Koi. The food was quite good - the standouts being the miso cod and the kobe potstickers. However, as with most of the popular NYC restaurants, there was little bang for the buck...

I am vegan and there were definite vegan options there; however, the all vegan dishes seemed more like an afterthought for the price.

Koi has good food. The sushi is excellent. Great service. The menu is set up for sharing which is great. It is a tad pricey but it is worth the price.

My husband and I were disappointed at our experience at Koi. We had come from Toronto and booked far in advance. When we arrived our table was huddled in the corner a bit, which wasn't ideal. The service was very disappointing. The server looked bored and only came to check on us twice - both times to take our order and deliver our main course. We had empty drinks every time he quickly skimmed by and eventually just brought us over the bill. I had high hopes for this restaurant and in the end it felt like a normal restaurant with mediocre service.

I have been to Koi In Vegas and LA I was so excited. Unfortunately this was not good. Fish did not seem fresh. Maybe it was what we selected. But just not good. I will not go back.

We split the delicious kobe potstickers, wishing there were more on the platter! For mains, we had the tender and subtly-flavored double-rib lamb chops , and the crispy calamari salad. We look forward to our next dining experience there, when we will try some of the other tempting dishes on the menu.

Two people, one drink, 4 rolls, edamame and appetizer, one dessert = $200

Waiter took too long tome to take our order and bring our appetizer.

So loud, I could barely hear friend across from me.

My specialty role ($32 one) was too oily to finish.

Definitely not running back.

Funky vibe but the food was average and ridiculously overpriced, even for NYC! And to top it off, poor service. Expect to pay at least $100/pp for an ok meal!

KOI never disappoints - the food is so delicious and location is the best. The only downside this time was that it was soooo hot in the restaurant and our server said the hotel controls the temp,. Other than that, another fabulous meal and happy friends who had never been.
