Went there by myself for a birthday dinner and it was incredible! The food was unbelievably delicious, the ambiance was lovely and the service was above and beyond wonderful!! This was the best birthday dinner I ever had, and I have had some amazing ones. Koi really sets the bar high in terms of service to beat.

The staff greets you very warm and that’s basically all. After it becomes worse and worse. Don’t go there if you have a child up to 5. The manager came and told me personally that he’s not happy for seeing 2 year old child who “might” yell for no reason. After all i got the check and left a 20 for the server, and here starts the funny part, this server (Billy I think) tells me in front of my guests that i have to give him mor tip to be correct around 70$, explaining that he will not get money from that 20 as it will be devided between all members of restaurant. OMG Really? I’ve been here multiple times and never saw this kind of things happening. I came to this place 3 times with 4 kids with friends family and noone was so rude telling me you will have to leave.Never will be back

Had 8pm reservation that was confirmed at 3pm earlier that day. My wife and I arrived 10 minutes till 8 and wasn’t seated till 8:45pm. Spoke to the hostess twice and she explained we are just busy tonight and we are working on getting you guys seated. Once we were seated the entire rear section was open and vacant. They had more than enough staff on deck so I have no idea why we had to wait 45 min after our confirmed reservation to be seated.

Do yourself a favor and order the Sea bass entree and Aha tuna roll. I’m not even a huge fan of fish but I’ll be dreaming of that sea bass!

Consistently one of the best in LA, I love this restaurant, hadn't eaten here in a number of years, didn't surprise me that it was still there, as it's so good...why you ask I didn't eat here for so long, well I escaped LA and have been living out of California, it's been some years since I've been in LA, but this restaurant gives me an idea that I wouldn't mind spending more time in LA, I think the aversion has diminished...haha, and a woman in LA makes a difference, enjoy this amazing restaurant I give it my highest marks!

Great service. The staff is wonderful, and they took great care of us. Nice ambiance. But the food is not up to par. The fish is not fresh enough, and the preparations are substandard. There are too many other places in LA for sushi that have great fish to come here.

Great place with a fun vibe, super place for a date or a festive dinner. The fried shrimp appetizer and crispy rice spicy tuna are classics. Gets really busy, so you might have to wait a bit at the bar for your table...good opportunity to try one of their handcrafted exotic cocktails. The service is kind and they do their best to accommodate. Nice fountain and decor.

The filet mignon was probably the best quality meat I've ever had. Totally worth the money. The starters and shared plates are a little pricey for the quantity, but quality is through the roof.

Went for a bachelor party. 5 of us split 8 rolls, each had at least one cocktail, split a carafe of sake & after tip it was still under $450. Well worth it. “She so LA” definitely the roll to finish on.
