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.

Service was excellent, Food was very well prepared, tasty, and beautifully plated. Enough space so you are not cheek to jowl to the next tables, in a nice high vaulted space. Cocktails were well made, and generous. Only minor issue is the noise levels due to the high ceilings. You can't have it all.

This restaurant feels like a has been that's still holding on. Like that place that was really cool and now is a solid easy option for the business crowd around Bryant Park, but on a weekend when the city is at your disposal.... there are MUCH more appealing sushi and fish restaurants in my opinion. And that's too bad because the one thing the restaurant does right is impeccable service. As for the sushi, it's average but expensive. Some of it did not taste as fresh as it could. And if you are trying to avoid MSG beware.... the restaurant uses a lot of it. Our server told us it's in their sauces, the roe, the seaweed and the wasabi. They also cook some items with butter so if you are dairy-free make sure you are having that conversation in detail and ask for an accommodation. My husband and I enjoyed our meal and our little trip back to what felt like the year 2000 in terms of ambience. But we won't be back, that is unless I find myself having a mandatory business lunch in Bryant Park.

Met a friend and had Wonderful service , great food if not extremely expensive
The tables are a bit too close and tight for comfort and the restaurant is extremely loud.
Overall had a great time but would want a more quiet section next time not near the sushi bar

Decent meal. Nothing out of this world.

I asked the waitress if the shrimp was rock shrimp. She said yes but it definitely wasn’t rock shrimp!

Note to those who are specifically expecting rock shrimp.

The ambiance and decor was very appealing and the food was equally pleasing to the eye. The real test is taste and they didn't disappoint. A wonderful meal in a lovely setting.

I have been dining at Koi for many years. I had not been in a couple of years so I was concerned that the experience may have degraded. I was pleasantly surprised to find it was still relevant and the food and service were both still excellent. Continued success.

We had Kinan as our server and he was terrific. The staff was extremely attentive, never missing a beat. The food was very good, the rolls were incredible. The reason for the 4 stars is the drinks. Both people I was with ordered a cocktail and both drinks were mediocre at best and pricey. The red wine selection by the glass is limited in choices. I realize NY is expensive but, out of the 5 choices, one choice was $40 per glass ... that is pure insanity (it was a Cabernet from Napa, but seriously?!), then next was upper $20's. It's a great experience but be careful when ordering as it adds up quickly.

It was probably the best sushi dinner date I have ever experienced. Our server Bre was absolutely excellent and she made my experience at KOI a memorable... she definitely deserves all the praise for a job well done. Her honesty and knowledge of the dishes was great! Thank U Bre!! I hope to see you again one day
