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.

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.
