Though we like the menu better at the NYC venue, the food was very good and the service outstanding. Great ambiance with outside seating an LA bonus. We’ll definitely return!

This is my absolute favorite sushi restaurant I come here very often .
This Saturday evening my husband and I had dinner ordered the usual and I was disappointed tha my krispy tuna was so over cooked :( I mean I literally thought I was going to chip my tooth it was super hard like if it was refried twice this has never happened before so we decided to be gracious and not make a comment a continue with our meal .
So I’m hoping my next visit I won’t be disappointed because that it’s my all time favorite starter .

We visited Koi on a Saturday evening and were seated in the outdoor area which was very pleasant. However, there were also some large parties near us which made it very noisy. The crispy rice had a nice balance of flavors and textures. The flavor of the gyoza was great but the texture of the pastry was rubbery and too thick. Lobster tacos were good, though lobster pieces would have been more appealing than minced lobster. We also had 3 maki - all were good, but none were particularly memorable. Desserts were generous portions and very good. I would be happy to eat there again, but don't feel compelled to return.

I'm a sushi lover. When I travel to new places I always look for new and interesting sushi restaurants. This is an amazing place!! If your hesitant about it, just go. Order the Koi crispy rice with Filet mignon for a starter, then order the dragon roll! If that's not enough you can keep ordering as you eat and it comes out so fast. Oh and the dessert.. is insane. GO HERE.

I enjoyed the crispy rice with spicy salmon, a bowl of miso soup and two pieces of salmon. The ingredients were fresh but not mine blowing.

Regarding the crispy rice, it is a dish that is more focused on a concept and execution than on bringing out the quality of its ingredients, which were good and what you expect for this level of restaurant. The two pieces of salmon were also of good quality. The sushi rice was good as well.

The service was very agreeable and fast.

This restaurant has seen better days. We last visited 4 years ago and it was buzzing. It was only half full which was surprising for a Saturday at Labor weekend. The waitress was upselling and persuaded us to order far more food than we could eat. The food quality was fairly good but simply not worth the premium rates charged. There was repeated confusion with the food servers over which dishes went where and it seemed disioganized. I would not recommend this restaurant given the proliferation of so many good restaurants nearby.
